LTPD and CAPD Series 24V Thermal Printer Mechanisms

New 24V LTPD and CAPD (with auto-cutter) series printer mechanisms help engineers solve the challenges of designing smaller, more robust, more reliable devices. And by offering greater design flexibility and industry leading value, these embedded printers are the ideal solution for meeting aggressive product release timelines and cost targets.

Small Form Factor

LTPD and CAPD series mechanisms free up critical design real estate. The new mechanisms offer a smaller overall form factor, innovative angled paper guide that requires less depth, and a smaller pitch flexible print circuit (FPC) cable.

Proven Reliability

LTPD and CAPD models are rated for a minimum of 100 km total printing and 100 million pulses for long life reliability. CAPD models offer a new built-in auto-cutter design, improving cutter reliability. The result: reliable media output, every time.

Design Flexibility

An array of form factor choices provides more flexibility for a smoother integration process. Options include, ASIC and interface board solutions, and both horizontal and vertical mechanical orientation designs.

Product Highlights
  • 2″ and 3″ print width models
  • Choice of horizontal and vertical orientations
  • EZ-OP clamshell-style paper replacement
  • Platen latch for better shock absorption
  • Available built-in auto-cutter (CAPD models)
2-inch horizontal model
2-inch model with auto-cutter, platen released
