Maxa Technologies, has announced the release of the DLXi, the newest member of the desktop printer line from CognitiveTPG, a provider of on-demand transaction and barcode printers.
The DLXi combines the CognitiveTPG reputation for ease of use, rugged design and exceptional reliability with best-in-class first label out performance and print speed. The DLXI also ships standard with several popular firmware emulations for ease of integration into legacy printer applications.
"The old Blaster and Advantage LX printers are true workhorses. We still see operational units in the field, some even after 10 or 15 years. However there comes a time when a customer realizes the importance of upgrading to the most recent communication interfaces, higher energy efficiency, faster print speed, and more memory. The DLXi offers a direct migration for our legacy customers and a field-proven thermal printer for new customers," said Jay Elwood, Director of International Sales for CognitiveTPG.
Unlike its competitors in this segment, the DLXi is engineered with a metal frame and metal print mechanism for exceptional reliability and durability, and is backed by a 2-year warranty. The DLXi also incorporates the latest electronic and firmware design to offer superior performance across every important printer function. However, it is the communication connector combinations that set this unit apart. The 4-inch print width model offers the most communication interfaces offered on a desktop printer platform (Serial, Parallel, Ethernet, USB-B and USB-A host).
Andrea Percival, Director at Maxa Technologies said: "Having been a distributor for CognitiveTPG since 1994, we are all too familiar with the rugged reliability of this desktop printer line. We have installed thousands of this printer line over the years and their reliability really is second to none. The new DLXi is designed to provide a direct upgrade option for the legacy printers, offering USB communication, faster print speed, increased memory and higher energy efficiency, and of course, the printer line continues to boast best-in-class first label out performance."
Percival continued: "Maxatec will be offering all the usual support services for the latest product release including technical support, service and repair, integration assistance and much more. We are very well placed and familiar with the product line from CognitiveTPG and are proud to be able to offer an extremely high service level for the CognitveTPG portfolio, and indeed all of our product lines."
The DLXi has new standard industry interfaces, multiple communication interfaces, Cognitive Programming Language as well as popular programming language emulations resident on the printer (EcPL and ZcPL) for additional application options, a print speed of up to 5 inches per second, 8MB Flash and 16 MB SDRAM memory as well as updated firmware to offer a direct migration path for legacy Blaster and Advantage printers (CPL).
