Extech Data Systems' New 4" Thermal Printer is IEC 68 Certified!

Extech Data Systems announces that the new S4500THS portable, battery operated thermal printer is IEC 68 certified, demonstrating the environmental suitability of the printer for mobile computing applications. Printers used in portable and mobile applications need to meet exacting operating standards covering temperature, humidity, shock and vibration as well as drop. These are the key areas covered in the IEC testing specifications.

Tony Revis, General Manager, notes: "Our product development plan calls for us to make our printers very economical but clearly exhibiting environmental toughness. We have successfully designed an extremely small, lightweight printer series without compromising on strength, durability and real suitability for portable and mobile applications."

John Cardarelli, Chief Engineer, and mechanical engineering guru, commenting on these results says, "We are very pleased that these tests support our design philosophy. In the world of mobile computing reference is sometimes made to "exceed industry standards," without defining what these standards are. Limitations are often put on the extent of the environmental claims made. We define these environmental standards using the IEC standard of the International Electro-technical Commission. IEC Technical Committee 50, Environmental Testing, recommends a number of environmental testing procedures that are documented in Publication 68. "
