The SP500 Series is a highly sophisticated low cost dot matrix receipt printer. It is capable of an incredibly fast receipt output, printing 40 columns onto 76mm wide paper at 4 lines per second and onto 58mm paper at 7.5 lines per second.

The SP500 features a bi-directional, logic seeking mechanism resulting in an exceptional throughput, out pacing its nearest receipt printer competition. The compact footprint of just 163mm by 140mm is enhanced by its internal power supply. This efficiency is further shown in the highly effective cable management system allowing the interface and internal power supply cables to be neatly tucked away behind a protective cover. Other features include a liquid repellent cover and internal guttering to help prevent fluid ingress, a near end paper sensor option, a rewind option and a receipt highlighting text facility.
