Martel MPP2000 Panel Printer

The MPP2000 Series is from the latest range of Martel printers having the smallest form factor size, comprising compact thermal panel mount printers with fixed head mechanism and “Easy Open” paper feature.

Designed for maximum versatility, the MPP2000 Series are capable of many different modes of operation. Numerous international character sets and barcodes are selectable and the printers have RS232 and USB serial interfaces as standard. They have a flash upgrade capability providing a flexible method of remotely updating the printer firmware for new customer requirements or requests. Power supply options include a single 5-8Vdc (standard) or 10-35Vdc supply giving fast, high resolution printing whilst a low current version is also available. Paper changing is simplified by the use of a hinged front to the robust moulded enclosure incorporating a detachable roller facilitating the “Easy Open” functionality.

In common with other devices from this manufacturer, these printers can be customised or branded to exactly match your requirements. Please contact us to discuss your specification.
