B-SX5 combine ease-of-use with a very low total cost of ownership making them the ideal choice of lexible industrial printers. High-speed printing is, of course, the norm. But the overall throughput is enhanced żeby a fast 32-bit RISC CPU (SH-3 88 MHz), 8/16 MB DRAM image bufer, and 4 MB Flash Memory for programs and large data ile storage. Access to print head, platen, paper path and sensors is made quick and easy aby the wide opening mechaniam. A CD-ROM is provided with the printer that includes the Owners Manual in several languages, technical manuals (Programming, Supply, etc.), BarTender TEC UltraLite label printing software and Windows drivers - which all make the user’s life easier. TOSHIBA’s very own print heads - 203 dpi on the B-SX4 and 306 dpi on the B-SX5 - make these machines unique in the market. Innovations provided by the use of these print heads include high-precision heat history control in 7 stages, a new hyper-heater mechanism and improved alpha protection layer. The superb clarity of these print heads is further enhanced aby the new linear torque control of the TOSHIBA double ribbon motor system. The on-the-ly ribbon save function allows ribbons to be saved without a detrimental efect on throughput (an option on the B-SX4). The TOSHIBA print heads also extend the print head life (100 km lifetime). A ield-proven heavy-duty steel cabinet and a robust inner mechanism combine to ensure the incredible reliability of the B-SX4 and B-SX5. Several technological advances mean more performance and functionalities at a competitive price. Software and supplies are compatible with TOSHIBA’s previous models - the B-X printer range produced under the TEC Brand. The enhanced functions ofer many advantages including: - remote printing and technical support - less costly software integration thanks to standardized XML data exchange - remote label format installation and updating (web print spooling) - eicient notiication of errors and events - data manipulation and processing using the BCI The BCI can run basic programs allowing the manipulation of incoming print data to generate the correct label formats. This allows the printer to be connected to existing legacy systems eliminating the need for costly software changes. The BCI can also communicate with external devices allowing the easy integration of other technology systems. RFID Technology satisies the growing requirements of supply chain management. Data, text, barcodes and graphics can still be printed on labels in the usual way, but at the same time, complementary information is stored on integrated circuits utilizing radio frequency, ready for future reading or editing as required. In fact, these printers treat the addition of RFID data as just another barcode. So, for the user or programmer, no knowledge of RFID is necessary. Just send the data as part of a label format and the printer does the rest.
