- Flexible connectivity including USB, Bluetooth and wireless LAN
- Swaps easily into existing systems.
Rugged endurance on the move
We have put our big printer technology into the smallest possible package.
Perfect for labelling on the shop floor, printing prescriptions on hospital wards, issuing tickets in the street or barcoding in the warehouse.
Durable and robust
In the real world, accidents can happen, so we developed rugged rubber corners, easily passing a 1.8 m drop test on to concrete (1.5 m for B-EP4).
We didn't stop there with the rubber, we used it on the external ports to protect them from any spills. Even strict IP54 enclosure standards against dust and water ingress are surpassed with the optional carry case.
So simple to use
For user friendliness and very fast operator training times, there's nothing like the clear backlit LCD read-out on the larger Toshiba thermal printers.
So we put it into the mobile range as well, displaying a label counter, battery level, wireless signal strength and error messages. There's audible alerts too, just in case.
Less media changes
Papers or labels dropped in with one hand? No problem.
The large capacity we've designed means changing media much less often. Plus there's no cores required on the rolls, so minimal waste.
And there's a linerless kit to issue labels without backing paper, for waste-free labelling.*
The high endurance lithium ion battery ensures many hours of operation. Swap it out for external recharging or simply charge in situ using an optional adaptor.
For applications on the road there is a cigarette lighter charging adapter (12 V input) for the B-EP2 and in the warehouse, there's a DC adapter (48 V input) to charge either model in a forklift.
The EP range is WiFi certified, making networking to all wireless or cabled systems a breeze.
USB 2.0 and IrDA (infrared) are standard across the EP models. Simply choose between Bluetooth, wireless LAN and serial.
The serial model can be upgraded to wireless and Bluetooth.
The EP series speaks many programming languages and is designed to simply plug and play without any software changes, whether it's a Toshiba printer using TPCL or any make using BCI (Basic Command Interpreter).
Both models will handle inputs from other peripherals such as scales and scanners. Uniquely, they support ESC/POS language.
