New TSP100 ECO printer from Star Micronics minimises environmental impact and reduces operating costs

The TSP100 futurePRNT™ series from Star Micronics successfully combines a high performance POS printer with ground-breaking software.  Going from strength to strength the series has seen the introduction of a range of models over the last five years including the world’s first dedicated single station Powered USB and LAN models as well as the 250mm/second TSP100GT series. 

The series is now successfully positioned as the most innovative and feature rich POS printer available today.  In fact, Star’s position in the marketplace is reinforced by other POS printer manufacturers following Star’s lead.  Yet, Star continues to maintain its leading position when it comes to innovation with the recent introduction of the world’s first dedicated ECO POS printer, the TSP100 ECO, that effectively responds to minimising IT environmental impact within the retail market while at the same time reducing IT costs for the retailer.

By providing the original TSP100U futurePRNT with a faster dedicated ECO printer model at no extra cost, retailers can help fight climate change and reduce operating costs.  This printer offers an ECO solution based on all aspects of use and manufacture including packaging, paper consumption as well as providing unique power management.  The TSP100 ECO is fully Energy Star Compliant and uses up to 40% less power than the majority of similar products today.

With the TSP100 ECO retailers not only benefit from all the features and functionality experienced to date with the TSP100 series but also a number of environmentally friendly and cost-saving tools. These include unique paper saving features that could help the retailer use up to 70% less receipt paper, resulting in reduced paper costs, less frequent paper roll changes at the checkout, lower transportation and logistics costs. 

The TSP100 ECO is the only partial cut printer able to achieve a 3mm Top Margin saving 8mm of paper for every receipt printed.  Furthermore, this printer can automatically reduce paper from an 80mm wide format to be printed on 58mm wide paper without the need for software changes.  In addition, Star has developed a ‘receipts on demand’ tool that prompts the retailer to ask the customer whether a receipt is required.  The receipt can then be either printed or cancelled thus reducing paper costs.  This function, which can be easily turned on and off, is ideal for low value, consumable items for which a receipt is often not sought by the customer. 

Unlike most POS printers that draw current when not printing the TSP100 ECO has a unique power management system which means the printer will revert with the PC to a very low powered standby mode when not in use while ‘instantly’ waking up when required to print.

And, as with all printers within the TSP100 series, the TSP100 ECO comes with all installation accessories included in the box. However, Star has eliminated all polystyrene and replaced it with innovative cardboard packaging while the printer’s plastic case is made of halogen-free recyclable plastic.

Carbon offsetting is the responsible way to compensate for the unavoidable CO2 emissions from our daily lives and economic activities by supporting the projects that deliver the equivalent CO2 savings elsewhere. Demonstrating Star’s commitment to fighting climate change the manufacturer has purchased Certified Emission Reductions (CERS) carbon credits derived from the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects as defined by the Kyoto Protocol and registered by CDM Executive Board of UN.  The carbon credits will offset the CO2 emissions emitted from the TSP100 ECO manufacturing and disposal process and projected power consumption for up to 5 years.  The CERs used will then be cancelled to complete the offsetting process.

Simon Martin, Director and General Manager, Star Micronics EMEA states, “At Star we have built our reputation and market position on developing high quality POS printing solutions at low prices.  With the launch of the TSP100 ECO we have embraced that commitment and, building on the success to date of the TSP100 series, have created a low cost POS printer that successfully combines high performance and functionality with reduced operating costs and environmental impact.  The TSP100 ECO further benefits from an industry-leading 4 year RTB limited warranty including print head and cutter.”

Note: The industry-leading 4 year RTB limited warranty including print head and cutter applies to Europe and South Africa.
