Out of Paper? The two-line LCD display alerts you: “Paper end” “Please change paper.” Alternatively, if the front cover is open “F cover open” “Please close front cover.” The LCD has an editor to customize, change or edit the display message on LCD. “Roll paper is running out, please call 123-456-7890 for replacement roll order!”

“This is an Epoch-making printer” said Max Yamazaki, President & CEO for Citizen Systems America. “The CT-S801 is revolutionary in various ways. “The LCD with editor is something similar to the function found on high-end, multi-functional copier machines. In addition, the CT-S801 can send the printer status back to the upstream of the POS system, has an USB-Hub interface to hook up another input device such as a signature or PIN pad or biometric scanner (finger print reader) to CT-S801 printer, not to the PC. We call this new feature “External Device Hosting”. The printer is truly phenomenal and like no other printer on the market today.”
