LTPG247 and CAPG247

(with auto-cutter)

The LTPG247 and CAPG247 (with auto-cutter) are small footprint, high performance, 24V 2“ direct thermal printer mechanisms. With EZ-OP clamshell paper replacement, these proven mechanisms are ideal for integrating into point-of sale systems, medical devices, test and measurement hardware, and more. Both models can be integrated with either the IFG001 interface board or the PTG00P01 processor, adding design flexibility to meet individual mechanical and electrical design requirements.

  • 150 mm/sec print speed
  • Temperature, platen position, out of paper, and cutter position sensors.
  • Small footprint design
  • Choice of interface board or processor
