Epson Introduces TM-H2000 Compact Multifunction Printer for High Speed Receipt Printing and Check Processing

Posted January 23, 2012

Epson, introduced its compact TM-H2000 multifunction POS printer, designed for retailers who require high-speed printing, check processing and endorsement, without slip printing capability. With a 203 dpi resolution and two-year limited warranty, Epson’s ENERGY STAR® qualified TM-H2000 is ideally suited for high-volume retailers looking to increase transaction speed and lower the total cost of ownership of current POS printing solutions. The TM-H2000 offers significant advantages over other hybrid printers, including significantly faster receipt printing, paper saving features to reduce paper usage up to 30%, industry-leading MICR accuracy and the lowest energy usage in its class. Based on Epson’s popular TM-H6000-series multifunction printer, the TM-H2000 delivers the same proven reliability and performance at a competitive price point, eliminating slip functionality no longer required by many retailers.

By replacing POS printers with the Epson TM-H2000, retailers will print at speeds up to 94 lines per second as opposed to approximately 50 to 80 lines per second with other hybrid printers. In addition to faster printing, the TM-H2000 delivers substantial cost savings with its built-in paper reduction features. When set at the full 75% paper reduction mode, Epson’s TM-H2000 can cut paper costs by over $300 per printer per year and conserve over 200 lbs. of paper within the first five years. For users with 1,000 printers, this translates to a cost savings of over $300K over a five-year period.

“Epson is committed to bringing retailers a wide variety of reliable printing solutions,” commented Mike Helm, Director of Sales for Epson’s Business Systems Division. “Many retailers would like to switch to thermal, but still need to process checks. The TM-H2000 has been designed to offer a cost-effective alternative to thermal, while delivering all the functionality that high-volume retailers need.”

Environmental Features: The TM-H2000 is ENERGY STAR® qualified, has the lowest power consumption in its class and offers print options that can reduce receipt paper usage up to 30%. In addition, with the TM-H2000, retailers can print receipts on new, Epson qualified, BPA (Bisphenol A) free, recycled thermal receipt paper made with 70% PCW, meeting demands for safer, more environmentally friendly receipts.

Transaction Speed: With printing up to 260mm/second at 203 dpi, Epson’s TM-H2000 offers significantly faster print speeds than current hybrid printers, making it an ideal upgrade to existing POS systems.

Reliability: With an MCBF of 96 million lines the TM-H2000 is the most reliable in its class and all components are designed to last the lifetime of the printer.

MICR Accuracy: Epson’s TM-H2000 MICR leads the industry with over 99.9% accuracy.

Easy System Integration: With Epson’s advanced Connect-It™ interface modules, the TM-H2000 is compatible with the latest systems and many legacy systems, including IBM and NCR. The TM-H2000 comes with dual interfaces (a built-in USB and one additional interface) to ensure easy integration.
