The new TTP-247 thermal transfer desktop bar code printer series delivers more performance for the price than any other printer in its class. Based on the design of its best-selling predecessor, the TTP-245 Plus, the TTP-247 runs at an impressive 7 inches per second, printing up to 4 inches wide at 203 dpi resolution. A second model in the series - the TTP-345 - offers high resolution 300 dpi printing at 5 inches per second. Both models offer 8 MB of SDRAM and 4 MB of onboard Flash memory. Gigabytes of Flash memory can be added via an onboard SDHC card reader.
TTP-247 series offers USB 2.0, parallel and serial connectivity, plus an optional Ethernet port for networking. It also incorporates the TSPL-EZTM printer-control language, which is fully compatible with other TSC printer languages, while supporting TPLE (Translation Printer Language Eltron®) and TPLZ (Translation Printer Language Zebra®). The languages automatically decipher and translate the format of each label as it is sent to the printer. TSPL-EZTM also features internal scalable True Type fonts (based on the Monotype® font engine), which are typically found only in more expensive printers.
Like its predecessor, the TTP-247 series features a user-friendly clamshell design for easy drop-in media loading, along with a rugged double-wall design that is stronger and more durable than other thermal transfer mechanisms on the market. Its innovative two-motor gear-driven engine is powerful enough to handle a 300-meter-long ribbon and label rolls up to 8.4 inches in diameter.
By using two motors instead of the usual one, TTP-247 series printers operate at lower torque, reducing noise, decreasing wear and tear, and extending printer life. The platform's user-friendly design makes it easy for operators to load and unload ribbons, and its 300-meter capacity is more than four times the industry-standard length for desktop printers.
The TTP-247 series holds up to a 5-inch OD roll on a 1-inch core and, using an optional external media hanger, can accommodate a full 8.4-inch OD label roll on a 3-inch core. With its many performance features and budget-friendly price, the TTP-247 series is by far one of the most attractive thermal transfer bar code printers on the market.
