Two-Inch, Three-Inch, and Four-Inch Portable Printers Gain New Compliance Certification
Extech Data Systems, a leading developer of portable printers for enterprise-wide applications, announces the addition of Ingress Protection (IP) certification to its already well-established list of tests and certifications used to demonstrate the operational and safety features of its comprehensive line of portable printing products. Developed by the European Committee for Electro Technical Standardization, IP Ratings specify the environmental protection an enclosure provides from solid objects and liquids.
Most recently, Extechs S2500THS (pictured), S3750THS, and S4500THS printers gained IP54 ratings for dust and water resistance in their respective environmental cases, indicating that the printers are protected from dust limited ingress with no harmful deposit and water sprayed from all directions (limited ingress permitted).
All our portable printers are designed for both indoor and outdoor use, said Tony Revis, manager of Extech Data Systems. On occasion, additional protection is required in areas of high moisture and dust and our environmental cases are great additions to our line of accessories. The cases were designed to obtain IP54 rating, rare in the field of portable printing. We added IP54 certification to supplement our existing IEC 68 certification that certifies operating and storage temperature, humidity, shock, vibration, and drop to concrete.
Extech Data Systems stands alone in combining IP54 and IEC 68, and thus offering the only portable printers certified to maintain the durability required in demanding field mobile environments.
In addition to maintaining compliance with IP and IEC standards, the printers are ETL listed, conform to ANSI/UL STD 60950, and are certified to CAN/CSA STD C22.2 No. 60950-00. A full one-year warranty on all Extech peripherals including print-head is standard and extended programs are available.
