Psion Teklogix's New Mobile Printers Complement Rugged PDAs
 
(2/14/2008)

New line of printers completes end-to-end mobile computing platform

 

Cincinnati, Ohio – In a move to equip its customers with complete end-to-end mobile computing and wireless data collection solutions, Psion Teklogix (LSE: PON) (www.psionteklogix.com), today announced the availability of its PTX Print Mobile printer line. The new printers, PTX Print PRINTABOUT, PTX Print MLP3030 and PTX Print MLP 3040, combine small size, lightweight and ruggedness with a rich set of features for virtually any mobile printing application.  By offering its Psion Teklogix branded line of printers, the company is providing customers with one-stop flexibility for their mobile device sales, service and support.

 

The result of a partnership agreement with Printek, Inc., a leader in the mobile printer industry, Psion Teklogix’ new PTX Print Mobile printers are easily integrated with the company’s full line of mobile handheld and vehicle-mounted devices as well as customers’ existing solutions.

 

The extremely rugged printers are ideal for applications ranging from warehouse label printing, field service documents and receipts to healthcare labeling and parking citation printing, among others.  The PTX Print Mobile printers can be mounted on equipment or worn on the body, and communicate with hand held or other computing devices by cable or wireless connection.

 

“There is a great synergy between our product lines and our customers who demand lightweight, yet highly durable mobile printers,” said Julie Payovich, president and COO, Printek, Inc. “We are looking forward to a mutually rewarding partnership by providing Psion Teklogix with this line of printer solutions.”

 

Among the new line of printers is the PTX Print PRINTABOUT (also called the PTX-MP-2000), a compact, lightweight, thermal printer designed specifically for mobile sales, field service and public safety applications. The PRINTABOUT, available in wireless Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and cabled versions, is 10 percent smaller than competitive models and 40 percent lighter. It is IP54 rated for water and dust resistance and rated for repeated 4-foot drops to concrete. The PTX Print MLP 3030 3-inch printer and PTX Print MLP 3040 4-inch printer offer graphic rich labels, wireless communication and quick production of receipts.  The printers combine an IP54 rating with ease-of-use, flexible vehicle mounting options, and can be carried on a belt or shoulder.

"This agreement is another significant milestone for Psion Teklogix, both in our efforts to provide our customers with complete end-to-end solutions, and in our strategy to partner with industry technology and market leaders such as Printek," said Ron Caines, president of the Americas, Psion Teklogix. “Printek is a leading mobile printer company, and by combining our expertise we can meet the growing need of our markets for rugged mobile computing devices.”
