Embedded Thermal Printer

Embedded Thermal Printer

Add a mini printer to any microcontroller project with this very cute thermal printer. Thermal printers are also known as receipt printers, they\\\'re what you get when you go to the ATM or grocery store. Now you can embed a little printer of your own into an enclosure. This printer is ideal for interfacing with a microcontroller, you simply need a 3.3V-5V TTL serial output from your microcontroller to print text, barcodes, bitmap graphics, even a QR code!
Part No: TP57x113R/T

This is an embedded thermal printer, which is widely used in various occasions, such as supermarkets, convenience stores, post office, bank and so on. It is not a normal consumer product, but similar to consumer products. The compact size makes it easy to be embedded to any kinds of instruments and meters. With a nice appearance, you can even put it on the table. On the hardware side, we specially choose the TTL interface so that it can be directly controlled by development boards such as Arduino or Raspberry Pi. In the Internet of things era, it’s time to print out your ideas!

The printer comes with a set of power and data cables but without a power supply. It can work in 5V~ 9V, with the peak current of 2A, so please get a power supply with more than 2A output capacity. In addition, the thermal paper is not included either. The thermal printer uses the common 57mm-wide thermal paper that you could get from most stationers and supermarkets. Certainly, we do also provide you with these accessories, including 5V/2A adapter and 57mm-wide thermal paper.
