Woosim WSP R240 Semi Rugged Thermal Printer

The WSP-R240 is the smallest of Woosim's family of rugged industrial printers. It is the lightest and most compact of the range making it ideal for carrying on the belt, hand held or in a pocket.

The standard sized 57/58mm wide thermal rolls are easily obtainable and very low cost. Its drop resistant casing has both RS-232C (or USB) and Bluetooth interfaces, making it ideal for mobile receipting, door to door selling (or collecting) and outdoor event POS. With high capacity Li-ion batteries as standard, this printer can be used for a prolonged period before recharging (which only takes 4 hours).

The WSP-R240 is certified by Apple Inc.; "Made for iPod", "Made for iPhone", and "Made for iPod" which means that an electronic accessory has been designed to connect specifically to iPod, iPhone, or iPad, respectively, and has been certified by the developer to meet Apple performance standards (Note *1). It is also compatible with some mobile payment apps including PayPal Heretm.
