BEMATECH International has announced the release of its new KB-1800 series printers to complement its extensive range of kiosk printers.
Available from JEA Technologies , the KB-1800 series has the benefit of being modular in design.
The main modules, the printer engine, control board and paper roll holder, are designed so that they can be put together in different permutations so that the printer fits the enclosure instead of the enclosure fitting the printer.
For example, the control board can be mounted below, behind or to the side of the printer engine, and the paper roll behind, above or below the printer engine.
The printer has both serial and parallel interfaces and USB is an option. It is available with and without a retracting presenter, and handles 80mm wide paper rolls, with diameter up to 200mm.
Print speed is a good 100mm per second, and it prints text in range of fonts, graphics and bar codes. Paper out and paper low sensors are standard.
Drivers are available for Windows 98, Me, NT 4.0, 2000 and XP, and a 32-bit Windows DLL API is also provided.
Scaling from A4, letter and web pages to receipt size is a feature.
