insignia , label manufacturers and thermal printer distributors, have released O’Neil’s microFlash 2te, a small, rugged and reliable 2-inch wireless portable thermal printer.
The 2te is the new model from O’Neil’s well-known microFlash family, which has set a new standard of ultra-rugged reliability for portable thermal printers.
The 2te provides all the advanced features available in the 4te mobile printer, which insignia introduced last year and has already become the ideal 4 inch portable thermal printer.
Recognising the need for high possible reliability and 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 harsh environmental conditions and physical abuse, while maintaining maximum performance standards.
“The 2te performed flawlessly in conditions that it should never experience in real life scenarios,” said Endre Vargha, General Manager for O’Neil.
“The printer is a true powerhouse designed to be the smallest and most reliable 2-inch printer available in the marketplace, and the 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, which has set the industry standard for printer reliability,” Endre Vargha said.
“At O’Neil, we recognize that in the world of mobile printing, outstanding reliability is a business critical requirement, because any amount of downtime costs money, reduces productivity and ultimately profits.”
The 2te produces high 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 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.
