New Seiko Instruments Mobile Printer Targets Budget-Conscious Wireless Users
Seiko Instruments USA Inc. (SIU) Thermal Printer Division has introduced a low-cost direct thermal mobile printer for wireless applications. The compact and lightweight DPU-S445 runs on a long-life lithium-ion battery and produces 4" wide printed output at 90 mm/sec. IrDA and Bluetooth connectivity options make the printer a valuable alternative for users who need convenience and reliability, without the high price of a ruggedized device.
With no need for toner or ribbon, and with very few moving parts to compromise reliability, thermal printers are a must-have for a growing number of untethered applications, from route accounting to mobile citations. The DPU-S445 is designed for fast, simple, no-fuss operation. Two well-placed buttons control power and paper feed, and the Seiko Instruments EZ-OP clamshell-style tray enables quick paper replacement, by simply dropping a new roll into the printer.
Weighing just over one pound and measuring 5.7 inches wide, 5.3 inches deep, and 2.3 inches high, the DPU-S445 is both small and light. The printer offers 203 dpi resolution, for crystal clear printout, and USB, Serial, IrDA, and optional Bluetooth interfaces, making it a perfect solution for a wide range of mobile applications. Pricing starts at $300 per unit.
