The TM-T88V thermal printers from Epson America Inc ranked the highest in terms of energy efficiency among other models in their class.
The single-station thermal printers are well suited for high-volume printing applications in the retail and teller segments.
The Energy Star-rated thermal printers can enable up to 10% savings in annual energy consumption for retail and industry.
The TM-T88V single-station thermal printers competed against ten other models including three Star printers, three Citizen printers, two Bixolon printers, one IBM printer and one Ithaca printer.
According to the test results, the Epson TM-T88V consumed between 68% and 89% fewer kilowatt hours than the next best competing and worst competing models respectively.
Epson TM-T88V thermal printers also facilitate paper savings for users who can reduce the length of a receipt by 25% or more.
Paper usage can be reduced using techniques such as bar code height shortening, line space reduction, line feed reduction and top margin reduction. All these benefits coupled with energy-efficiency make the Epson TM-T88V a superior single-station thermal printer.
According to Mike Helm, Director of Sales and Marketing, Epson System Device Group, the TM-T88V thermal printers meet the needs of customers seeking reliable, cost-cutting technologies that have the least environmental impact.
