Citizen CL-S700 Series

High Performance with Easy Access

Ribbon and media loading is equally quick and easy with a high-lift metal mechanism that opens to a full 90 degrees, allowing for easy access to the ribbon and media path. Best of all, the Hi-Open design of the CL S700 allows the case to be opened vertically, making it the perfect printer for placement in confined settings. In addition, the CL S700 offers all the superior features you have come to expect from citizen Active Ribbon Control and Positioning system to eliminate ribbon wrinkle and media slippage, rugged heavy-duty steel cabinet for extra durability.
