With over 20 years experience in producing barcode label printers, the TOSHIBA B-SX4 & B-SX5 thermal transfer/direct thermal industrial printers provide world leading innovation and reliability. Built with the future in mind, the ‘RFID Ready’ B-SX printers take the barcode label printer to the next level. Ideal for use in all heavy-duty industries including chemicals, manufacturing, phamaceuticals, textiles,

H i g h - e n d, H i g h - q u a l i t y I n d u s t r i a l Pr i n t e r s

The B-SX4 and B-SX5 combine ease-of-use with a very low total cost of ownership making them the ideal choice of flexible industrial printers.


UHF RFID Antenna


High-speed printing is, of course, the norm. But the overall throughput is enhanced by a fast 32-bit RISC CPU

(SH-3 88 MHz), 8/16 MB DRAM image buffer, and 4 MB Flash Memory for programs and large data file storage.

Ease of use

Access to print head, platen, paper path and sensors is made quick and easy by the wide opening mechaniam.

A CD-ROM is provided with the

B-SX4 & B-SX5 Suitable Applications



Chemical Industry

Pharmaceutical Industry

Textile Industry



Food Sector

Retail Distribution




Fast, reliable, easy and compatible at a lower total cost of ownership

printer that includes the Owners

Manual in several languages, technical manuals (Programming, Supply, etc.),

BarTender TEC UltraLite label printing software and Windows drivers - which all make the user’s life easier.

High Print Quality

TOSHIBA’s very own print heads -

203 dpi on the B-SX4 and 306 dpi on the B-SX5 - make these machines unique in the market. Innovations provided by the use of these print heads include high-precision heat history control in 7 stages, a new hyper-heater mechanism and improved alpha protection layer.

The superb clarity of these print heads is further enhanced by the new linear torque control of the TOSHIBA double ribbon motor system. The on-the-fly ribbon save function allows ribbons to be saved without a detrimental effect on throughput (an option on the B-SX4).

The TOSHIBA print heads also extend the print head life (100 km lifetime).


A field-proven heavy-duty steel cabinet and a robust inner mechanism combine to ensure the incredible reliability of the B-SX4 and B-SX5.

Several technological advances mean more performance and functionalities at a competitive price.

Full compatibility

Software and supplies are compatible with TOSHIBA’s previous models - the

B-X printer range produced under the

TEC Brand.

Enhanced Features

Internet, E-mail, FTP, SML, RFID and BCI

The enhanced functions offer many advantages including:

• remote printing and technical support

• less costly software integration thanks

to standardized XML data exchange

• remote label format installation

and updating (web print spooling)

• efficient notification of errors and


• data manipulation and processing

using the BCI

Basic Command


The BCI can run basic programs allowing the manipulation of incoming print data to generate the correct label formats.

This allows the printer to be connected to existing legacy systems eliminating the need for costly software changes.

The BCI can also communicate with external devices allowing the easy integration of other technology systems.

Easy connectivity

The B-SX4/SX5 printers have an array of interface options:


1 External RS232C port

1 Internal RS232 port for RFID


Expansion I/O

ECP parallel port


USB v1.1 port

Built-in LAN board 10/100 Base

2-slots PCMCIA interface board

Wireless LAN 802.11b card

RFID Enabled


RFID Technology satisfies the growing requirements of supply chain management.

Data, text, barcodes and graphics can still be printed on labels in the usual way, but at the same time, complementary information is stored on integrated circuits utilizing radio frequency, ready for future reading or editing as required. In fact, these printers treat the addition of RFID data as just another barcode. So, for the user or programmer, no knowledge of RFID is necessary. Just send the data as part of a label format and the printer does the rest.

UHG 869.5

The B-9704-U1-QP option enables the printer to encode chips at 869.5 MHz.

Current supported chips are EPC Class 0,

Clas 1 and ISO-18000-6-B. EPC Class 0+,

GEN2 will be available in the near future.
