DASCOM Europe, a recognized leader in business transaction document print solutions, today announced a new thermal label printer designed to bring exceptional features at a value price point. The easy-to-use, aesthetically-appealing DL-820 printer brings an array of stand-ard and optional features normally found only on much more expensive printers in this market space.
The DL-820 provides thermal transfer and direct thermal printing at speeds up to 8 inches (203 mm) per second at a resolution of 203 dots per inch (dpi) print density. The printer comes with USB and Ethernet Interfaces as standard offerings, but also offers several other options including Serial and Parallel connectivity.
Media handling is also a major advantage and allows for a great degree of flexibility since the unit will accept either roll or fold paper, and media cut can be achieved through either standard tear blade or auto-cutter or peeler options. The tear blade allows for tear-off in either direction or up or down depending upon the operator's preference.
According to Michael Ried, Marketing Manager EMEA for DASCOM Europe: "The DL-820 is uniquely positioned to give users advanced features and versatility at an exceptional price point. The product's open architecture allows easy operation and simplicity to change the paper roll or ribbon. Customers will also have the ability to easily switch between some of the most popular barcode printer emulations including ZPL II and EPL, and TSC programming and label formats." He adds: "The unit also comes with a very large media compartment capable of handling ribbon as long 360 meters or paper rolls with a maximum outside diameter of 8 inches (203 mm) so user in-tervention is less frequent, and overall operation more efficient."
