Product Release: Datamax-O'Neil Launches Next Generation MP Compact4 Mark II Printer Line

The Industry's Most Compact Ruggedized Printers Now Offer Higher Print Quality and Performance, and Expanded Emulation Capabilities

ORLANDO, FL – March 30, 2010 -- Datamax-O'Neil, part of Dover Corporation and global provider of label and receipt printing solutions, introduces a new generation of its MP Compact printer family, now designated the MP Compact4 Mark II (buy here from Legacy Technology Services) and the MP Compact4 Mobile Mark II (buy here from Legacy).  The new models, which will be available in April, incorporate the following features:

  • Datamax-O'Neil's  DPL printer language
  • Optional W-LAN 802.11 B/G with WPA2 security protocol
  • IntelliSEAQ™ printhead which provides analytics and reporting capabilities
  • Expanded emulation capabilities
  • “Top of Form” multi-function sensor

“The MP Compact4 Mark II printers have an incredibly small footprint which allows them to be used in applications where space is limited,” said Umesh Cooduvalli, senior product manager for Datamax-O'Neil. “Their compact size takes up less than half the space of a traditional desktop label printer but with the same duty cycle and strength.”

The rugged printers are constructed on a solid cast metal frame and protected with metal die cast covers.  The printer is ideal at the front desk of a hospital or in the box office of a movie theatre.

The Compact4 Mobile Mark II is designed for installation on forklift trucks and mobile stations. It can operate from a connection to a forklift's battery.  Its vibration-proof design makes it the perfect choice for warehousing logistics.

The MP Compact series of printers have achieved considerable success in Europe.  “We expect these printers to achieve similar success in other regions of the world,” Cooduvalli explained.  “The new features we've incorporated into the latest Mark II generation printers make them an even more competitive offering.”
