Toshiba TEC launches new portable printers

Toshiba TEC Europe, the Auto ID specialist has launched two portable label printers the B-EP2 and the B-EP4.

These new high performance and robust portable thermal printers will provide the ultimate in wireless functionality and reliability on the move - extending Toshiba TEC's support of advanced mobile applications in the retail, hospitality and warehousing environments.

Building on the success of the popular B-SP2D printer series, the new range of portable printers meets all the requirements necessary for integration into legacy systems therefore protecting customers' previous investments.

Ideal for every portable application, the B-EP2 and the B-EP4 offer USB and infra-red interfaces as standard and link quickly and seamlessly with other hand held devices.

With built in Bluetooth connectivity or secure wireless network (WLAN), communications are also available with specific models making the printers suitable for portable POS and remote transaction processing applications. And with added benefit of coreless media, the B-EP2 and B-EP4 are good for the environment too.

With mobility and efficiency as paramount, Toshiba TEC has concentrated on designing a contemporary portable printer that is compact and light yet rugged enough to meet the needs of today's demanding mobile applications, as both printers pass drop tests at heights of up to 1.5 meters on concrete.

The B-EP2 and B-EP4 are Windows compatible, driven by a 32-bit flash-based CPU and are equipped with a full range of interfaces, a backlit LCD screen and key interface. These new TOSHIBA TEC models are unique with their ability to allow users and administrators to change the settings and configurations directly on the device.

The range is powered by lightweight and long lasting Lithium-Ion battery technology for an extended number of printable labels and significantly increased performance.

The B-EP2 label printer has a single roll capacity of 400 labels of 50mm length while the B-EP4 model achieves a single roll output of 530 labels of 50mm. Both models support a continuous strip issue whereby every printed label smoothly generates the automatic issuing of the next label, increasing the overall throughput.  For added mobility and ease of use, an integrated belt clip, Carry Case or Shoulder Strap is available.
