Epson TM-T88V Receipt Printer Ranks Most Energy Efficient in its Class

Posted June 7, 2010

Epson TM-T88VUses Significantly Less Energy than Same-Class Competitors

Epson, a leading supplier of value-added printing and check scanning solutions for the retail and financial industries, announced today 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 20101. 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 is the only thermal receipt printer available today with 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, including three Star, three Citizen, two Bixolon, one IBM and one Ithaca. 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. Epson’s TM-T88-series is the world’s best-selling thermal printer to date, with over five million units installed worldwide.
