Global printer manufacturer Epson has announced the launch of new point-of-sale (POS) printers which are "ranked highest in energy efficiency".

The firm, which also manufactures branded ink cartridges, said that the TM-T88IV and the TM-H6000III consumed significantly less energy than other models in their field, with the latter using between 39 per cent and 48 per cent fewer kilowatts per hour than other similar units.

Mike Helm, director of sales and marketing for Epson System Device Group, said: "When purchasing peripherals, retailers are looking for top quality and reliability, as well green products that can potentially lower operating costs throughout the store.

"Epson has a strong legacy of environmentally-conscious design and manufacturing and we will continue to bring the most energy efficient products to the market."

The printers, which are used to produce receipts at the POS, also offer two-colour graphics and feature Magnetic Ink Character Recognition accuracy of over 99.9 per cent.
