The 2te, available from Insignia , represents the 8th generation of the industry leading microFlash family and has been designed to be the smallest, high performance and reliable printer for mobile applications.
The 2te is the latest model from O’Neil’s legendary microFlash family, which has set a new standard of ultra-rugged reliability for portable thermal printers. The 2te provides a 38 percent smaller footprint than its closest competitor, and offers all the advanced features available in the 4te mobile printer, which insignia introduced last year and has already become the industry’s leading 4 inch portable thermal printer.
Recognising the need for the highest possible reliability and super small casing for field service, route accounting and a number of other mobile printing requirements, O’Neil conducted extensive testing to ensure the 2te could withstand the harshest environmental conditions and the most physical abuse, while maintaining the highest performance standards.
According to Endre Vargha, General Manager for O’Neil, the 2te performed flawlessly in conditions that it should never experience in real life scenarios. The printer is an ideal solution for any mobile application where size ruggedness and reliability are paramount.
The 2te has been 11 years in the making, and benefits from 8 generations of improvements that have been incorporated into the microFlash. The 2te produces top quality direct thermal receipts, proofs of delivery and invoices for route accounting, direct store delivery, field service, logistics, home delivery and pre-sale systems. To accommodate the need for faster transaction processing, the 2te printer incorporates a 32-bit RISC ARM 9 processor allowing the printer to process complex applications with lightening speed, while enabling the user to enjoy exceptionally high print throughput.
The 2te can print up to 2,240 - 6” long receipts on a single battery charge with automated power-saving sleep and wake-up modes. Users can quickly determine the printer’s Bluetooth, charging, and power status with the 2te’s external LEDs, and the external charging capability enhances ease-of-use in the field. The 2te also includes an optional built-in magnetic stripe card reader allowing the easy processing of credit or debit card payments. The 2te utilises USB to ease integration into new or established applications, and is compatible with a variety of network/remote management software tools. Additional enhancements make media loading and battery handling easier than ever.
