Citizen CLP-8301 Printer

Engineered with the highest Citizen quality at the lowest price. The dynamic and robust Citizen CLP-8301 thermal transfer printer features high performance 300 dpi resolution at 4 inches per second throughput speed.

Roll fed (up to 8 inches), continuous or fan fold media may be printed at widths up to 8.6 inches. The Citizen CLP-8301 can also print on 6 inch media for those narrower application requirements. The heavy duty metal case provides durability and user friendly quick loading of label media and ribbons (wax, wax/resin or resin).

For extended compatibility, the Citizen CLP-8301 printer features Datamax industry standard emulations along with Citizen's own powerful command language to allow users to take advantage of the extra functionality of this high resolution printer.

The Citizen CLP-8301 features a unique modular design that is flexible and expandable allowing for a wide range of interfaces and accessories.

Standard interfaces include a parallel and serial port (up to 115Kbps), optional 1284 parallel and universal serial bus. The optional PCMCIA card allows the printer to be used in stand alone unique applications. Therefore, the user can load keyboard or personal computer.

Optional features include an internal rewinder, peeler with "present sensor", label and tag autocutter and a ribbon saver mode.

Typical applications include:

  • Pallet labels such as ODETTE, SSCC, AIAG. Widely used in the motor industry and more recently in the general logistics markets, wide-format labels are used to give big, clear labels on pallets of goods shipped by truck or container.
  • Replacement for continuous and regular laser printers in warehouses and other 'hostile' environments where dust and dirt cause regular problems with laser printers. The CLP 8301 is often used with a 'tear wait' or 'autocutter' option.
  • Chemical drum labeling. Often using labels with pre-printed colored boxes, the details of the drum contents and mandatory warning signs are over-printed in black on a drum-by-drum basis.
  • Wide-format banner printing. For customer who need to print on 'long' synthetic materials like polyproylene.

Wide range of connectivity
Parallel and serial ports are included as standard on the printer with optional IEEE1284 parallel, Ethernet and Wireless LAN interfaces which can be easily installed.

The LCD control panel allows you to make changes to the printer's configuration very quickly with logically set out menus and categories to quickly adjust the printer’s operation.

With quick servicing in mind, the printhead and the media plattens can each be changed in just one minute!
