KD2003-DG12A
Printheads
Compact high speed thick film
thermal printhead (8dots / mm)
KD2003-DG12A
KD2003-DG12A built in new and high density driver IC developed by the cutting edge technologies realizes the highest
speed in the same class (250mm/s) at both Thermal Transfer and Direct Thermal.
This Thermal Printhead is suitable for POS, ATM, KIOSK and TICKET industries which require High Speed / High
Density and Graphic printing.
By the implementation of highly durable protective coat, it achieves 150km as the standard abrasion life.
zApplications
Label printers
Ticket printers
POS printers
ATM printers
KIOSK printers
Terminal printers
zFeatures
1) The use of a special partial glaze and the latest heating element structure, along with new high-density driver chips that
can accept big current, has allowed ROHM to achieve print speeds of 250mm/s, the fastest in its class ( with historical
control ).
2) One rank resistance value of 650Ω ± 3% eliminates the inconvenience of rank selection.
3) The required driving voltage of 3.13 to 5.25V allows wide range of power supply voltage setting. This also allows
multiple choice of electronic components for printers.
4) With the standard abrasion life of 150km, long life is achieved against the largely abrasive thermal paper.
