The 200 series of dot matrix printers by Epson was established years ago as the de-facto worldwide standard for the POS segment and is supported by almost every software package. The current version TM-U220 has once again been revised and optimised. It the result of Epson's decade-long experience as market leader in the field of cash register printers. Two different versions (A and B) offer the right equipment for every application. Version A is equipped with an automatic cutter and take-up spool for the carbon copy. Version B has an automatic cutter and can be attached to walls if required. According to the area the printer is being used in – be it gastronomy, hotel, specialized and retailer trade or administration – simply select the version that best suits your individual needs.
Both versions print receipts on standard paper at the high speed of 6 lines per second. While the predecessor model TM-U210 was only compatible with one paper width, the TM-U220 processes three different widths: 57.5, 69.5 and 76.0 mm. This means not only more flexibility for the user, but also cost savings, since narrower rolls are respectively cheaper.
When it comes to printing receipts at the cashpoint, speed counts the most. That is why Epson has increased the speed as well as the performance of the printers even further. With a paper width of 76.0 mm and 40 characters per line, the TM-U220 prints at a speed of 4.7 lines per second; with 30 characters per line this equalss up to 6.0 lines per second. Thanks to the simple paper handling, the receipt roll is exchanged within seconds using only one hand.
