B-FV4

Toshiba FV4 is the latest addition to the Toshiba’s desktop printers.

Better, faster and more efficient

Based on the Toshiba B-EV4 the B-FV4 has been upgraded all round to be faster, use less energy when printing and more economical to run and maintain.

Model options

  • Thermal Transfer and Direct Thermal only models: The Toshiba B-FV4 is available as either a thermal transfer printer (B-FV4T) or a direct thermal only (B-FV4D) printer. The B-FV4T models are able to print in either thermal transfer or direct thermal modes.
  • 200 DPI or 300 DPI Print Resolution: Both thermal transfer and direct thermal models are available with a 200 DPI or 300 DPI print head.
  • Choice of connections: All B-FV4 models have a choice of three port configurations; USB and Ethernet; USB, Ethernet and Serial; or USB and Parallel.

Printer language emulation

The B-FV4 printers can interpret printer languages meaning you can replace other printer models such as Zebra or Datamax without having to change any software settings.

Key Features

  • Uses 32% less energy when printing
  • 200 DPI models are faster than previous model now up to 6-inches per second
  • Larger ribbon capacity of 300 m more than double the B-EV4
