The Addition of the Dolphin 99EX Expands Datamax-O’Neil’s PrintPAD Integrated Printing Solution to Include Industry Leading Mobile Handheld
ORLANDO, FL. – December 6, 2011 – Datamax-O’Neil, a global provider of industrial grade label and receipt printing solutions, today announces the availability of the PrintPAD 99EX (buy here from Legacy Technology Services), which combines the company’s PrintPAD integrated printing solution with Honeywell’s Dolphin™ 99EX mobile handheld computer. Offering mobile workers the convenience of a “carry, charge and communicate” solution, the PrintPAD 99EX combines a sleek, ergonomic design with rugged reliability. It meets the demanding requirements of route accounting, direct store delivery and other field service applications.
Honeywell’s Dolphin™ 99EX mobile computer provides extreme durability, cutting-edge wireless technology, user-friendly design and multi-functional data capture for front-line workers operating in both indoor and outdoor environments. Combined with Datamax-O’Neil’s PrintPAD cradle and printer, the integrated solution is designed to take mobile worker productivity to a new level while helping to reduce operating costs.
The Datamax-O’Neil PrintPAD cradle charges both the printing unit and the Dolphin™ 99EX simultaneously, eliminating the need for multiple A.C. and D.C. adaptors and chargers. The unit can even be truck-mounted and charged between service appointments via a vehicle cigarette lighter adapter. In addition, the PrintPAD 99EX provides effortless and reliable communication between the handheld and the printer.
An optional built-in magnetic stripe card reader allows the easy collection of credit or debit card payments, which makes it ideal for point-of-sale applications. Users can quickly determine the printer’s Bluetooth, charging and power status with the PrintPAD’s external LEDs. The PrintPAD offers intelligent power management and a programmable sleep mode that provides extended battery life. For direct store delivery applications, optional DEX capabilities are available, allowing communication via DEX connections with no special software or mechanical switches.
The PrintPAD and Dolphin™ 99EX have been tested to successfully survive multiple six-foot drops to concrete. In the often rough-and-tumble mobile work environment, the extreme reliability and durability of the PrintPAD 99EX solution has become a solid requirement for both indoor and outdoor mobile applications.
“The new PrintPAD 99EX expands our line to include another major mobile handheld computer manufacturer,” said Paul Weslake, senior product manager for Datamax - O’Neil portable printers. “Our relationship with Honeywell strengthens our position in offering the most competitive solutions for DSD, route accounting and field service applications.”
“Honeywell Scanning & Mobility is focused on helping enterprises improve productivity. The Dolphin 99EX, paired with the Datamax-O’Neil PrintPAD, is a powerful solution for mobile workers who need computing and printing capabilities on the go,” said Taylor Smith, director of product management for Honeywell Scanning & Mobility.
