Maxatec launches IP54 rated 4-inch portable printer
Maxatec has launched a new rugged, compact 4-inch receipt and label portable thermal printer. The IP54-rated Sewoo LK-P43 shrugs off dust and water ingress and adds to Maxatec’s comprehensive range of portable belt-mounted printers for mobile applications.
The printer continues the Sewoo tradition of engineering excellence and affordability and is suited to mobile scenarios, including food delivery, service environments, policing, logistics and transportation, and warehouse management.
The printer can print self-adhesive labels – the device features a built in label peeler – as well as traditional receipts and labels using thermal paper rolls with outer diameters up to 56 mm. Printing at 80 mm/sec, it has an adjustable paper width from 50 to 108 mm, making it extremely flexible. It offers RS-232C, USB, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connectivity options, and it has a fast AC charger with a long-life battery to provide a full shift of printing.
Weighing in at just 1kg with its battery, the printer can shrug off all kinds of climatic conditions as it does not need a case to protect it from the environment and it can operate in temperatures as low as -10°C. It can also tolerate up to 90 per cent humidity.
The printer also has drivers for all popular operating systems, including Windows XP, Vista, Win7, Symbian, Windows Mobile, Windows CE, Linux, Android, and Blackberry. A range of accessories is available, including a battery cradle, car charger, shoulder strap and belt clip.
“The LK-P43 continues the Sewoo tradition of producing very affordable and reliable fit-for-purpose mobile printers. We believe this is the best value 4-inch label and receipt printer available today. The printer is very user friendly and will work with virtually any handheld computer as it offers a wide range of drivers – so whether a brand new system is being installed or if existing equipment is being replaced, this is an ideal larger format device,” says Steve Berry, Director, Maxatec.
