E-Class Options

Thermal Transfer

Thermal transfer printing requires the use of a ribbon. The ink/wax from the ribbon transfers to the media by the printer to create an image. Thermal transfer printing provides exceptional clarity and scanability.

External Cutter

The external cutter provides ease of automatic cutting for tags and labels after a label is printed. This feature attaches to the front of the printer.

Present Sensor

The present sensor allows the printer to be configured for "one up" printing. With the sensor installed, the printer will not print the next label until the previous printed label has been removed from the printer.

FLASH Memory Expansion

FLASH Expansion cartridges are used for permanent storage of custom fonts, formats and graphics. The FLASH memory cartridges cannot be used in conjunction with the ILPC option

External Media Supply Stand

The external media supply option allows the use of large media supply rolls, up to 8-inches in diameter, on 1" to 3" cores.


International Print Capability consisting of one of the following:

• CG-Times (western European) Scalable font
• Kanji Gothic B Scalable font
• Simplified Chinese GB Scalable font

External Battery Pack

An external battery pack option is available to power the printer in areas where an AC receptacle is not available such as warehouses, shipping docks, vehicles, or mobile print stations. The battery pack option will allow the printer to operate up to 10 hours on a single charge.
