Franklin Fueling Systems continuously strives to improve and upgrade its product offering; providing better quality, more value and the latest technology to its customers. The latest product enhancement is the thermal printer, now standard on T5 Series tank gauges. The new thermal printer option replaces the previous ink-ribbon printer option and provides several new convenient features.
The new features on the thermal printer include a faster printing speed, as well as higher quality printing for easily read reports. The thermal printer eliminates the need to replace ink cartridges and utilizes a common paper type that can be found locally. In addition, new technology was built into the printer that will pause the printer and automatically resume where it left off, should the paper run out mid print. Should multiple report prints be requested during a paper outage, the printer will queue up to five reports while waiting for a new paper roll to be loaded.
The thermal printer utilizes a process by which heat is used to create words, numbers and symbols on the paper. The surface head of the printer contains 394 tiny individual heating elements that heat up in a specific combination to correspond with each character to be printed. The paper is coated with a chemical that reacts with the heat as it passes through the printer head creating sharp, highly visible characters.
Franklin’s new thermal printer will begin shipping on all T5 Series tank gauge ordered with the printer option immediately with planned field upgrade kits, available soon. Contact your local Franklin sales representative or authorized distributor for more information on ordering a T5 Series tank gauge with the thermal printer option.
