Speed and Functionality
Utilising ground breaking CPU technology from Toshiba the B-SX8T models offer high-speed printing and enhanced processing via an extensive choice of interfaces – indlucing USB and internal LAN. the interfaces provide additional flexibility and choice, making these printers adaptable to the widest variety of environments and applications.
High Print Quality
The B-SX8T 305dpi, 213.3mm wide print heads facilitate speedy printing of large format compliance labels. A floating print head mechanism guarantees superb print quality with reduced friction and a flat paper path. The ribbon save function conserves the ribbon when it is not required, reducing costs, the amount of down-time required for ribbon changing(availablie as standard on the B-SX8T) and allowing optimal performance for RFID encoding work.
For future proofing, the B-SX8T printers are compatible with legacy systems, Toshiba or non-Toshiba. With the powerful Basic Command Interpreter(BCI) program, incoming data can be manipulated to generate the correct label formats. The BCI can also commuinicate with external devices allowing the easy integration of other technology systems.
B-682/882/672/872Software and supplies are compatible with Toshiba’s previous range-topping models – the B-682, B-882, B-672 and B-872 printers. Existing media stock and grages do not need to be changed.
The B-SX8T comes with a free Central Network Management Suite that allows the user to: Manage all the Toshiba printers attached to the network through their IP address. Exhibit system information and firmware versions, allowing firmware to be updated across the network simultaneously. View the status of each individual printer connected to the network in real-time with real-time alerts (including viewing web pages). View a graphical display of the alerted error with instructions on the actions necessary to resolve it. It can even give the number of the service call centre when needed.
Lower Cost of Ownership
All Toshiba products are manufactured at Toshiba’s own facilities providing the assurance of complete reliability and quality of key components essential for low overall cost of ownership. To lower the cost of ownership further the B-SX8T printer has large internal memory as standard with no requirement for costly PCMCIA boards or ATA memory cards.
Rugged and Robust
A field-proven heavy duty steel cabinet and sturdy inner mechanism combine to offer the B-SX8T the same robustness and reliability as the rest of the Toshiba SX series of industrial printers. These printers may be used with media inside or externally.
All of Toshiba’s new generation of thermal printers for the industrial environment are RFID ready. This provides not only essential flexibility for the end-user to choose the RFID module that best meets the needs of their business and suppliers, but also ensures a future-proofed printing solution that can evolve and grow with the future demands of the organisation. OptionsThe B-SX8T printer can be extended with various modules:
- Cutter moduleA swing cutter to physically separate labels or continuous media automatically after printing
- Peel Off moduleThis module strips the label from the backing paper
- Expansion I/O Interface boardThis option allows connection to external automated systems such as applications or on-line verifiers
- Real-time clockRFID kits (HF & UHF)
- Head up function, reducing damage to the chips during printing
Using Toshiba TEC’s ribbon save technology(see video), the print head can be raised to allow it to skip the RFID chip contained in the label. This unique function removes the possibility of impact or pressure damage to both the head and the chip. The end result of which is the continued long life of the printhead nad fewer chip failure after printing.
