The CLP 9000 series printers are designed for the highest performance applications where data throughput, printing speed, media capacity and reliability are paramount.
With print speeds up to 12 inches per second (300 mm/s), the CLP 9001 can produce 180 4"x4" (100mm x 100mm) labels per hour.
The all-metal construction, fast processor and high speed interfaces make for a durable, quick printer.
The CLP 9301 and 9301R models have 300 dpi heads making them idea for retail applications requiring EAN/UCC compliant barcodes.
Internal 10-inch (250mm) media capacity: Large capacity internal media holder stores full sizes rolls within the heavy duty metal case, protecting them from dust and dirt. (There is an external feed slot available as well.)
450 metre ribbon capacity: To match the large media capacity, the CLP 9000 series can support 450 metre long ribbons as well.
Internal Rewinder & Peeler: The CLP 9001R and CLP 9301R printers have an internal rewinder and peeler function built in as standard. The rewinder is designed to pull the liner (backing) paper leaving the label peeled and presented for immediate application.
Internal Networking Options: Both the optional Ethernet and Wireless LAN options easily fit inside the printer's case avoiding accidental damage.
With a print speed of up to 12 inches per second and 32-bit system architecture to provide the processing power behind the scenes, the CLP 9000 series is designed for the most challenging of applications for batch printing or on-demand labelling.
With Citizen’s own strict demands for ease-of-use and reliability in mind, the CLP 9000 series printers all feature easy media loading with a wide access printhead system and colour-coded operator cues to make media and ribbon loading simplicity itself.
Using the LCD control panel to make changes to the configuration is very straightforward with logically set out menus and categories to quickly adjust the printer’s operation. And with quick servicing in mind, the printhead and the media plattens can each be changed in just one minute or less!
Easy connection to the outside world is via the standard parallel and RS232C serial interfaces (up to115,200 bps) and optionally IEEE 1284 high speed parallel, ethernet networking or a USB interface modules. Other options include a PCMCIA interface, two types of autocutter and a real-time clock and calendar.
For complete compatibility, the printer features an industry standard software emulation allowing easy connection to many software packages. Alternatively, Citizen’s Windows® drivers are compatible with all common software packages.
The heavy duty metal case provides durability, yet easy access to the media bays and the die-cast internal mechanism opens extremely wide for quick loading of labels and ribbons. However, the stylish case design means that the printer won’t look out of place in an office or shop as well as a warehouse or production line.
Other features and functions include a 10-inch paper roll holder as standard, media autocalibration for quicker setup when switching between different media types, flash downloadable firmware for easy upgrading and an optional factory fitted internal rewinder and peeler with peel wait sensor.
