Posted March 9, 2015

Photo of TSC DA200 SeriesTSC has expanded its line of compact printers with the introduction of the new DA200 Series, a direct thermal desktop printer that provides an unbeatable combination of affordability and performance.

Scheduled for release in the second quarter of 2015, the new DA200 Series is ideally suited for a wide variety of applications, including product marking, retail point of sale, business-parcel shipping, entertainment ticketing and small-office administration.

The DA200 Series offers a choice of either 203 dpi or 300 dpi (dots-per-inch) resolution and is driven by a heavy-duty 60-watt power supply that allows it to quickly generate high-quality labels at print speeds up to five inches per second.

For easy loading, the DA200 Series employs a user-friendly double-wall clamshell design with a large 5-inch (outside diameter) center-biased media bay. The spring-loaded label roll holder makes loading simple. Top-of-form sensing – by gap, black mark or notch – is standard. The printer also comes with a head-open sensor.

USB 2.0 connectivity is standard, and Ethernet, Serial RS-232, USB host connections, Bluetooth and 802-11b/g/n Wi-Fi are available as options.

Surplus memory, powerful programming language

The DA200 Series is loaded with memory – 128 MB Flash and 64 MB SDRAM – permitting the easy storage of fonts, international character sets and graphics. The printer supports, “out of the box,” a fully compatible set of standard industry emulations, including Line Mode, Eltron and Zebra languages, making it easy to replace old installed hardware.
