Get the Most for Your Investment
The small footprint size of the Compact4 Mobile Mark II printers, the industrial grade ruggedness, and designed for mobility make it the perfect printer for lift truck and mobile cart printing solutions. Key features are listed below:
Small but Mighty: The Compact4 Mobile printers have an incredibly small footprint which allows them to be used in applications where space is limited. Their compact size takes up less than half the space of a traditional desktop label printer but with the same duty cycle and strength.
Rugged: The Compact4 Mobile printers are constructed on a solid cast metal frame and protected with metal die cast covers. Unlike other small printers, the Compact4 series are industrial printers that are built to withstand the rigors of a warehouse or high volume printing application.
Shock & Vibration ready: The Compact4 Mobile offers a special anti-vibration quick-lock mounting plate, a unique design for forklifts and mobile stations. Runs on 24-48 VDC and connects directly to a forklift battery.
Media loading is unlike any other printer in the market. The levers are large and easy to manage -- so easy that the operation can be done single handed while wearing a leather or latex glove. The paper path is slotted through the side of the printer with no covers to open or clamshells to unlock. Loading media doesn’t get any easier.
Orientation: The Compact4 Mobile printers can be used in almost any orientation. The design of the printer and special mounting plates allow the printer to be used in its normal upright position, mounted vertically on the wall, or even mounted upside down.
Software: Labelpoint is a simple yet powerful command language that controls the Compact4 and Nova printers. TeraTerm is an easy to use DOS terminal program for configuring these printers. MP Design is powerful label design software which programs label formats in the printers native command language, Labelpoint. MP Design software comes standard with the printers.
Expand Your Capabilities
MP Compact4 Mobile printers are offered with a wide variety of options and accessories to meet the needs of many industrial applications. A complete list of options and accessories are available on the partner center. The most commonly used options are listed below:
W-LAN Optional 802.11 B/G wireless LAN makes it easy to connect to networks and makes mobile printing operations easy. The wireless option has the latest WPA2 security protocol.
Emulations DPL version of the Compact4 Mobile Mark II printers is available with PL-Z, PL-I, or PL-B emulation capabilities, making it easy to replace competitive printers.
Tower Kit Unlike any other printer in the industry, the Compact4 Mobile printers can be stacked using the tower rack accessory. The rack is designed to maintain the footprint occupied by a single printer while allowing easy loading and printing operations.
Wall Mounting Kit The wall mounting kit allows the printer to be wall mounted quickly and easily. It is ideal in applications where counter space is limited and the printer is in close proximity.
Label Taken Sensor Kit The label taken sensor, also known as LTS, is commonly used with the peeler kit. A photo cell is mounted facing upward at the label exit to detect when the label is taken. The photo cell controls the printing pace so that the next label is printed only after the previous label has been removed.
The peeler kit automatically separates the label from the label liner (backing) by pulling the liner over a sharp edge and winding it onto a three pronged spindle. This allows the user to take a printed label directly from the printer and apply it. A peeler kit along with a label taken sensor kit automates applying labels by removing the label liner and pausing printing until the label is taken.
