Datamax-O’Neil’s E-Class Mark III “Professional Plus” Barcode Printer Bridges the Gap between Desktop and Industrial Printers

The latest E-Class Mark III printer offers features typically found in industrial printers but at a desktop printer size and price.

Bourg-lès-Valence, France, July 26, 2012 --( Datamax-O’Neil, a global provider of industrial grade label and receipt printing solutions, announces the availability of its newest E-Class Mark III printer model, the Professional Plus (Pro+). The Pro+ offers a locking media cabinet and enough internal media capacity to hold a 7.2-inch roll of media or stack of fan-folded media – the ideal printer when applications require secure printing or continuous uninterrupted printing. Similar to the Professional model, the Pro+ also offers a fast print speed, expanded communications, real time clock, audible alerts and large display – features normally found in industrial class printers, but available with the E-Class Pro and Pro+ at a desktop printer price.

“Our new E-Class Mark III Professional Plus model meets a need in the marketplace that has up until now been unanswered,” said Raul Palacios, Senior Product Manager for Datamax-O’Neil. “The locking media cabinet is perfect for printing tickets and other media that needs to be protected. In addition, the 7-inch media capacity means less downtime for media replacement maintenance. The technology, features and price makes the E-Class Pro+ a one-of-a-kind in our marketplace.”

The Pro and Pro+ expands on the E-Class Mark III Advanced model with features like a graphical display with a navigational menu interface that lets users generate labels and tags without using a computer, real time clock, USB host connectivity, faster print speed at 6 ips, and optional wireless LAN and Bluetooth communications. It is the ideal desktop printer for manufacturing, healthcare, retail and postal service markets.

“We conducted a lot of research from end users about what features they needed to make their business run more efficiently and the E-Class Pro+ addresses many of these requirements,” Palacios explained. “The Pro+ gives our customers many of the features found in high-priced industrial printers but in a desktop size and price. Many customers found themselves buying an industrial printer just for a single feature only available in an industrial product, the Pro+ answers that call.”
