Citizen Rolls Out Pair of Printers

Weighing only 1.18 pounds, Citizen America's new printer is designed for printing on the go.

Weighing only 1.18 pounds and measuring 5.7 by 4.4 by 1.6 inches, Citizen Americas new PD-24 printer is designed for printing on the go.

The PD-24 portable printer is suited for point-of-sale or point-of-service applications, enabling, for example, mobile retail workers to print receipts of credit card transactions or health care workers to print patient test results.

The printer, priced at $699, includes serial and IrDA infrared interfaces. A Bluetooth-compatible version is available for $949.

The company last week also rolled out a thermal bar-code printer, the CLP-621. Priced at $645, the CLP-621 is an entry-level printer aimed at small and midsize businesses that need to label lower volumes of products, cartons or pallets for shipping.

Both printers are available now.
