EDISON, NJ--(Marketwire - Aug 27, 2012) - Star Micronics America, a leading worldwide manufacturer of point of service printers, TSP800 family of printers has reached beyond the traditional point of sale receipt printer application. The variety of TSP800 models has enabled Star to explore additional vertical markets.
Star's TSP800IIRx has become the "go to" printer in the healthcare industry for secure prescription printing. Answering the requests from hospitals and physicians to efficiently automate the prescription process and make it simple, the secured TSP800IIRx enables doctors to print thermal prescriptions vs. handwritten prescriptions from a pad avoiding legibility errors. Utilizing specialized and secured thermal prescription paper, the prescriptions are printed using the latest electronic medical record (EMR) software in the industry, resulting in a secured legible script in seconds. With a print speed of 180mm/sec, the TSP800IIRx features a locking paper chamber, Kensington lock slot and accommodates the healthcare script paper standard of 4.4 inches.
The TSP800II e-citation printer has also become a mainstay in the public safety market. Effortless printing allows officers to keep watch on suspects while a citation is processing. Vertical mount stands can be affixed to vehicle consoles for space savings, "drop in and print" paper roll replacement for time and convenience, and optional mobile power supply adapters for in-vehicle operation all add up to simple and easy e-citation printing for law enforcement officers.
In addition to healthcare and public safety markets, Star is a leading provider in the United States for credit union transaction printers and is also the transaction printer provider for one of the top five Canadian financial institutions. The TSP800II is one of the most popular of Star's models for the financial industry. Depending on the traffic of the retail bank or credit union, operators only need to change paper (and only paper) once or twice a week on Star's bank teller transaction receipt printers. Institutions benefit from the capability of the printer to print banking transaction receipts with logos, bar codes and also have the ability to add coupons or rebate certificates while decreasing customer wait time.
The TSP800II can print up to 6 inches of bank receipt transaction information in less than 2 seconds. This ultra fast and quiet product allows financial institutions to provide the best service in record time. With bank and credit union counter space at a premium, the TSP800II was developed with a small footprint in mind, ideal for teller receipt printing.
"The diversity of the TSP800 has made the printer family a mainstay for Star Micronics," stated Christophe Naasz, Marketing Director at Star Micronics America, Inc. "With the TSP800, we have succeeded in a variety of new markets, previously untouched by the point of service industry."
