Datamax-O'Neil MP Compact4 and Nova Printers Features

MP Compact4 and Nova Printers Features

MP Compact4 Mark II is a powerful response to desktop thermal printing requirements, and ideal for on-demand printing, especially where space is limited. The printer is ideal at the front desk of a hospital or in the box office of a movie theatre. Able to deliver continuous operation, the Compact4 is the printer of choice whenever ease of use, reliability and high performance are a must.

MP Nova

The Nova series is for customers who need faster speed, high capacity label rolls, and thermal transfer as an option. These printers are the most compact printers in their class. Featuring all-metal casing, they are tough enough for harsh industrial environments, yet quiet enough for office use.

The Compact4 Mobile is designed for installation on forklift trucks and mobile stations. It can operate from a connection to a forklift’s battery and its vibration proof design makes it the perfect choice for warehousing logistics.

Features at a Glance

Small but Mighty:

The Compact4 printers have an incredibly small footprint which allows them to be used in applications where space is limited. Their compact size takes up less than half the space of a traditional desktop label printer but with the same duty cycle and strength.

• Rugged:

The Compact4 printers are constructed on a solid cast metal frame and protected with metal die cast covers. Unlike other small printers, the Compact4 series are industrial printers that are built to withstand the rigors of a warehouse or high volume printing application.

• Shock & Vibration ready:

Compact4 Mobile offers a special anti-vibration quick-lock mounting plate, a unique design for forklifts and mobile stations. Runs on 24-48 VDC and connects directly to a forklift battery.

• Media loading:

is unlike any other printerin the market. The levers are large and easy to manage -- so easy that the operation can be done single handed while wearing a leather or latex glove. The paper path is slotted through the side of the printer with no covers to open or clamshells to unlock. Loading media doesn’t get any easier.

• Orientation:

The Compact4 Mobile printers can be used in almost any orientation. The design of the printer and special mounting plates allow the printer to be used in its normal upright position, mounted vertically on the wall, or even mounted upside down.

• Software:

Compact4 Mark II printers are now offered in both DPL and Label Point versions. DPL version is also offered with PL-Z, PL-I, and PL-B emulation capabilities. MP Design, label design software comes standard with the printers.
