Datamax-O’Neil New Performance Series
The new Datamax-O’Neil Performance Series thermal label printers
by Timmy Thermal
I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait until the newest of anything comes out. For instance, when I’m playing Candy Crush Saga I cannot wait to get to the next level to see what new challenges I’ll need to conquer! Really! How many levels are there? But I digress. The same goes for my other passion – thermal printers.
Datamax-O’Neil has announced a new line of thermal label printers. Dubbed the Performance Series, they are available now, but let’s take a look at what Datamax-O’Neil’s latest has in store for would-be thermal label printer customers.
The Performance series of thermal label printers from Datamax-O’Neil features a direct thermal printing option standard, with an option upgrade to thermal transfer printing. Its print range, in terms of length, ranges from 0.25 inches (6.35 mm) to 36 inches (915 mm) and its maximum print width is 4.16 inches (105.7 mm) or 4.27 inches (108.5 mm), depending on the exact model. It also supports 300 dots-per-inch (11.8 dpmm) printing as a standard feature, with 600 dots-per-inch (23.6 dpmm) as an upgradable option. Lastly, the Performance Series print speeds clock in at 6 inches-per-second (152 mmps) minimum and 10 inches-per-second (254 mmps) maximum.
Naturally, the Performance Series line of thermal label printers can be used in a variety of industries and serves multiple solutions. Datamax-O’Neil recommends their Performance Series thermal label printers be used in the industrial manufacturing industry to track assets, produce work-in-progress labels, agency labels, and instruction labels; transportation and logistics industry to accurately and quickly produce shipping labels and assist in cross docking and pallet tracking; food and beverage industry to print high resolution food and shipping labels, expiration dates, time stamps, and product identification; and finally the pharmaceutical industry to print prescription labels, compliance labels, track & trace, and pick lists.
One of the biggest features of the Performance Series from Datamax-O’Neil is the inclusion of the PCL industry standard printer language, making integration with a wide array of operating systems a breeze and can run completely free of any external application on your computer if need be. To support this, Datamax-O’Neil has included a USB port on the printers themselves, so content stored on a USB memory drive, for example, can be accessed and printed without the use of a computer.
Just like the Candy Crush Saga, I believe Datamax-O’Neil has crushed it!
