Epson TM-T88V Thermal Printer Ranks High in Energy Efficiency

Epson America, Inc., a supplier of value-added printing and check scanning solutions, announced that its newly-released TM-T88V single-station thermal printer ranked highest in energy efficiency, consuming significantly less energy than same-class competitive models. The results derive from stringent, side-by-side tests among ten competitive products performed by Seiko Epson Corporation in 2010. Ideally suited for high-volume retail and teller printing applications, the TM-T88V provides fast, reliable, full-featured receipt printing while delivering industry-leading energy savings and reduced paper usage of 25%or more. In addition, the TM-T88V features Energy Star qualified configurations. As of June 1, 2010, the TM-T88V will be shipping throughout Epson's designated sales and distribution channels.

Epson's TM-T88V single-station thermal printer with USB interface was tested against ten same-class competitive models. Testing results indicate that the Epson TM-T88V uses between 68% and 89% fewer kilowatt hours as compared to the next best performing and worst performing models tested. In addition to its high energy efficiency, the TM-T88V enables users to reduce receipt length by 25% or more, without altering receipt content, by using a combination of paper-saving features including top margin reduction, line space reduction, line feed reduction and barcode height reduction. Low energy consumption and paper-saving features combine to significantly reduce the TM-T88V printer's long-term cost of operation.
