Posted June 8, 2017

Citizen has launched a new mobile four inch label, receipt and ticket printer. The CMP-40L is a hand-held, hard-wearing and easy to operate printer that is perfect for fast and reliable printing on the move.

The compact CMP-40L is designed for ultimate ease of use. Members of staff in any business environment require minimal training in how to operate it and rarely need to change more than just the media rolls – a process which is quick and easy in itself. The most versatile of the CMP series, which also features the CMP-20 and CMP-30 mobile printers, this printer is ideal for a variety of applications, including: labels and delivery notes in logistics; price mark-downs in retail; receipts in restaurants, bars and cafes; on-the-spot tickets for transport use, parking and traffic violations; and for issuing entry passes for people waiting in line.

Thanks to Lithium Ion battery technology the CMP-40L can be used for long periods of operation before recharging is required via its easy-to-charge power packs. The Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity enable the efficient CMP-40L to be linked with payment taking devices to be used as a reliable mobile point of sale (mPOS) device, making it ideal for busy retail environments. The printer user can monitor the connectivity level and printer status on a clear LCD Screen; it does not have to be monitored from a stationary desktop computer or laptop, and can easily be accessed from a range of iOS, Android and Windows devices.
