Key Features & Benefits

Lighter, Faster

We’ve always created the most compact machines on the market. Each one is so small and light (480g including battery) that you can wear or carry it and forget that it’s there. Get top quality printed images at top speeds.The EP range boasts a market-leading print speed of up to 4 inches per second (105mm/sec) and a high performance 32bit RISC CPU ensures lightning-fast processing. With ‘peel & resent’ on demand, simply take a label and the next one is issued in a flash.

Durable & Robust

Portable printers can be required in various environments so it’s natural to expect them to perform perfectly even in extreme conditions. In the real world, accidents can happen, so we developed rugged rubber corners, easily passing a 1.8m drop test on to concrete. We didn’t stop there with the rubber, we used it on the external ports to protect them from any spills. Even strict IP54 enclosure standards against dust and water ingress are surpassed with the optional carry case.

So Simple to Use

For user friendliness and very fast operator training times, there’s nothing like the clear backlit LCD read-out on the larger Toshiba thermal printers. So we put it into the mobile range as well, displaying a label counter, battery level, wireless signal strength and error messages.There’s audible alerts too, just in case.

Less Media Changes

Papers or labels dropped in with one hand? No problem. The large capacity we’ve designed means changing media much less often, three times less often than the B-SP series. Plus there’s no cores required on the rolls, so minimal waste.

Power Options

The high endurance lithium ion battery ensures many hours of operation. Swap it out for external recharging or simply charge in situ using an optional adaptor.

Easy Networking

The EP range is Wi-Fi certified, making networking to all wireless or cabled systems a breeze. USB 2.0 and IrDA (Infrared) are standard across the EP models. Simply choose between Bluetooth, wireless LAN and serial. The latter model can even be upgraded to wireless and Bluetooth at a later date using the optional kit.

Swift Integration

With MS Windows® drivers (2000, XP, Vista) and configuration utilities as standard, there’s also an SDK for Windows® CE5.0 and Windows® Mobile 5.0, a unique “BCP Print for CE” Emulator for developing bespoke applications with ease. The EP series speaks many programming languages and is designed to simply plug and play without any software changes, whether it’s a Toshiba printer using TPCL or any make using BCI (Basic Command Interpreter). Both units will handle inputs from other peripherals such as scales and scanners. Uniquely, they support ESC/POS language.
