MtPsi Series Portable Printers

MtPsi Series Portable Printers are “super industrial” and offer reliable mobile printing operations.

MtPsi Series Portable Printers are a variant of the popular MtP Series with extended environmental and durability specifications for challenging printing applications. Running battery-free and mounted to a fixed structure in industrial, construction, or manufacturing vehicles, MtPsi operates reliably under conditions not typically associated or compatible with the use of standard ruggedized IT equipment, in every climate from the desert to the tundra.

MtPsi Portable Printers are built to last. They’re built for speed and usability, too. Additional time-saving, life-extending, and flexibility-enhancing features include:

  • Overmold design for superior resistance to impact and harsh chemicals.
  • IP54-rated for water and dust resistance.
  • Generous media capacity reduces reloading; media gauge indicates level at a glance.
  • Rugged, screw-down connector for power and data.
  • Simple drop-in paper loading. No need to thread paper.
  • Direct thermal printing. No ink.
  • Wide input voltage range and superior circuit protection.
  • Sealed, wipe-clean control panel.

MtPsi Series: MtP300si

The MtP300si is the "super industrial" versions of the popular MtP300 printers. This printer is designed to be mounted in or on industrial, construction, or manufacturing vehicles used in the most rugged and demanding application. To endure such harsh environments, the "si" printers are designed to perform in extended operating temperatures and to withstand the vibrations associated with large vehicles used on construction sites.

This battery-free printer also has an internal DC voltage regulator with a wider input voltage range than provided by standard vehicle adapters.

In addition to all the features offered by its standard MtP counterpart, this printer offers the following specifications:

  • DC Input: 8-32 VDC
  • Overvoltage Protection: 80 VDC for 1 Hour, Failsafe to 180 VDC
  • I/O Short Circuit: Tolerant of shorts to ground or DC input
  • Operating Temperature: -40° to 185° F (-40° to 85° C)
  • Vibration Resistance: 9.8 Grms, 24 to 2000 Hz
  • Chemical Resistant Case per SAEJ1455

For label printing applications, "LP" models are also available.
