Citizen CL-S700/703

Industrial label printer for medium to large runs



The Citizen CL-S700 industrial label printer not only offers user-friendly and professional handling and design, but its outstanding performance also makes it the perfect choice for all applications in industry, production and logistics. This compact device comes with a robust metal body that meets all demands of an industrial environment and ensures reliable uninterrupted operation.
The printer is suited for special applications and comes in different models: the CL-S700 and CL-S700R models print labels with 8 dots/mm (203 dpi) at a speed of up to 254 mm per second. This allows for production of large amounts of labels with graphics or barcodes extremely quickly. A 16 MB flash memory and up to 64 MB RAM guarantee a smooth printing process. Applications that use 2D codes are best served with the models CL-S703 and CL-S703R that print pin-sharp labels at 12 dots/mm (300 dpi) and 200 mm per second. The maximum label width of 118 mm results in a large range of possible applications in warehouses, sales and production. Additionally, the CL-S700DT model is designed for the transport and logistics market, where only direct thermal printing is required; as standard it features a speed of up to 175 mm/sec., USB and serial interfaces.

Citizen industrial printers can be installed in almost any environment. The integrated Cross Emulation guarantees unsophisticated communication with existing equipment. Whether ZPL, EPL or Datamax, the printer recognises the protocol and adapts automatically.

The enormously space-saving design and technical features turn even untrained users into label pros and will definitely convince you: the pocketed power switch on the front side prevents accidental activation. Simplified menu configuration and intelligent handling are only a few of many striking features.

The Hi-Open mechanism allows the lid to be opened completely vertically, so that the printer does not require additional space for replacing consumables. The Hi-Lift metal mechanism lowers the printhead by 90 degrees, which gives users direct access to paper and ink ribbons, making it possible to change consumables within only a matter of seconds. The printer uses large media rolls with a small core and 450 m ink ribbons with high capacity for guaranteed maximum operating time. Whether wax, wax/resin or resin, the printer automatically recognises the ribbons with inner or outer winding. The integrated ARCP technology tightens ribbon and paper automatically, preventing wrinkles and optimising results at the same time.

The CL-S700R and CL-S703R models are equipped with an integrated rewinder that automatically winds the labels up after printing or starts dispensing the labels. All standard functions can be fully accessed from the front panel. Difficult winding procedures from the sides are prevented in a space-saving and ergonomic manner.

The automatic tear-off device is integrated into all versions that do not have the rewinder, which is perfect for ticket and other applications where tags and continuous feed media are to be cut into predefined lengths. A cutter is optionally available in two versions (heavy duty included). An optional dispenser edge is also available for these models. Users remove the labels directly from the printer without separating them from the liner.

All CL-S versions of the 700 series are equipped with parallel, serial and USB interfaces. Optionally, two types of Ethernet card – a compact and a sophisticated premium version – are available for retrofitting to all CL-S printers of the 700 series as is a premium Wi-Fi card. The printers are also ENERGY STAR compliant.
