TSC Printronix Auto ID has made several changes across its popular barcode printers and print engines by introducing new models, advances in security, wireless connectivity, remote management, and printhead management.
More powerful and adaptable wireless connectivity options in the newly improved printers, including wireless 802.11a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules, enable faster roaming and greater productivity. The enhanced connectivity works well in facilities with Wi-Fi networks boasting multiple access points, ensuring no data is lost between roaming from one access point to another.
The MX Series, MH Series, and PEX Series have all been upgraded with new electronics to improve their operational performance. TSC has also added two 6-in industrial thermal transfer printers to its MH261 Series, the MH261T and MH361T.
The upgraded printers are all supported by SOTI Connect, which gives greater visibility and real-time data on an entire fleet of printers' health and performance, allowing them to be managed remotely.
Vast improvements in printhead management help prevent incorrect or poor-quality labels from entering the supply chain. The printhead mechanisms checks and reports bad dots on the printhead in real-time, alerting in advance to replace faulty printheads. The usage can be stored in the printhead mechanism giving users an indication of output levels and the printhead’s health and replacement status.
‘We’re committed to delivering the most advanced thermal print technology to customers across demanding industrial environments like logistics, manufacturing, and retail,’ said Sabine Mayer, senior marketing manager of TSC Printronix Auto ID, EMEA. ‘Our radical new line-up of rugged printer models are competitively priced yet bring unprecedented performance and precision to users.’
