Mylox MLX-2260 Thermal Panel Printer

The MLX-2260 Panel Printer from Mylox Technologies incorporates the highly reliable Fujitsu FTP628, easy load thermal printer mechanism and a fully customisable Mylox interface board MLX-608 (available seperately).

Paper loading is from the panel front for easy maintenance. The panel door incorporates a status LED and paper feed/self test button (customisable function). Industry standard panel cutout dimensions and multiple interfaces, power options and software emulation modes make it an ideal choice as a second source device or as an upgrade to your existing panel printer. Flash re-programmable memory means that firmware can be updated or customised to suit your specific application. It is also possible to change many of the default startup features such as paper feed function, fontset, print orientation and interface protocols.

  1. Paper roll length is approximate, based upon readily available UK sourced paper with 12.7mm core.
  2. Depth behind panel does not account for electrical connectors for which allowance must be given. Please order a printer for physical evaluation before committing to your final panel design.
  3. This value does not include the 9-35V DC optional power board which can (but doesn't need to) mount on the back of the panel clamp adding approx. 29mm to the overall depth.
