Seiko 2″ 5V Thermal Printer Mechanism – LTPD245


• Seiko – LTPD245 – 2″ High speed and high durability thermal printer mechanism for POS, ECR and KIOSK

• High performance mechanism / label printing possible * 5V range – Paper width: 58mm and 80mm – Easy Paper Operation


Seiko’s LTPD 5 Volt series is the result of following the general market trend of more compactness and high reliability. These mechanisms print fast (up to 100 mm/s) in order to enhance the printing performance of mobile devices. They are highly reliable offering a lifetime of 50 km abrasion and 100 million activation pulse resistance. LTPD 5 Volt series is available in two different forms – horizontal and vertical. Paper insertion can be done by easy paper operation or auto loading. As an additional option two paper sensors support double station printing, which sometimes is required for POS applications.

The complete product spectrum includes an auto cutter (CAPD Series), serial and USB interface boards, a CPU and drivers.
