Citizen CT-E351 high performance printer now available from PULSA as a bundle with Swissbit USB TSE stick

In cooperation with Citizen, PULSA are happy to announce the launch of a fiscal bundle consisting of Citizen’s thermal receipt printer and Swissbit’s TSE stick. The bundle  offers a secure solution for  those who need a new receipt printer in addition to the TSE stick that addresses the introduction of fiscalization in Germany.

Citizen's CT-E351 is a sleek, compact, high-performance printer that can fit into even the smallest of spaces. Working as a thermal receipt printer with front output, the printed receipt does not have to be removed from the top but can be conveniently removed from the front of the printer. The partial or full cutter  enables prints to be produced, cut and held in the printer if required

The Citizen CT-E351 supports paper rolls with a variable paper width of 58mm and 80mm.Thus providing prints not only in the well-known and commercially available format of 80mm width but also smaller 58mm width, such as those used in payment terminals or other printers with a smaller housing. These paper rolls are changed using a simple drop-in process. There is no need to attach the rolls to an internal roll core. Simply insert the roll into the printer and printing output can carry on as normal.

The CT-E351 receipt printer has a standard USB interface and a second interface, where you can choose between serial RS232 or Ethernet network interfaces. However the printer model bundled with the Swissbit USB TSE stick has only USB and serial interface options.

The Citizen printer is mobile POS capable and supports the usual Windows, Linux and Mac OS X operating systems as well as Android and iOS mobile operating systems through different, freely accessible SDKs.

The USB TSE stick from Swissbit fully supports the requirements of German fiscalization and the technical guideline TR-03153 of the BSI for electronic security devices.

As a common USB stick with USB type A connection, it is connected directly to the USB port of the cash register. Its internal TSE certificate has a validity of 5 years. There is 6.5 GB of free memory available on the device for storing the fiscal transactions and an additional 1 GB of free memory for application use.

The Swissbit TSE Stick processes transactions at a speed of less than 250 ms and has a lifespan of more than 20 million signatures guaranteed.
