Citizen CT-S801 Thermal Receipt Printer

The Citzen CT-S801 features a top paper exit - making ideal for retail applications where this is generally preferred. 

With a print speed of 300mm/s, the CT-S800 POS printer is the first to break this barrier. The printer has the benefit of an internally integrated power supply which can be easily detached in order to fit the printer into even tighter point of sales environments. 

The CT-S801 and CT-S851 is the industry’s first point of sale printer to feature an LCD display showing helpful and intuitive messages and also allows all the printer's settings to be configured quickly and easily. In the event of an error the LCD turns red and shows a message of how to clear the problem. 

No tools are needed to replace either the cutter or the thermal head, thanks to an innovative snap-in system from Citizen. These modules can be removed and replaced once again by simply lifting two levers. 

A full range of interface options and drivers are available, please contact us for full details.
