What is Thermal Print Technology?

When investigating the options for mobile technology, key decision makers are increasingly considering thermal printers as the only true and reliable solution for field professionals.

Printers using advanced direct thermal technology produce an image by heating speciallycoated thermal paper. When the paper passes over the thermal print head, the coating turns black in the areas where it is heated, producing an image. Thermal printing is increasingly considered by many as the only realistic solution for mobile applications for a number of reasons.

Thermal print technology enables busy mobile workers to be able to focus on the job at hand without the inconvenience, or the added cost of purchasing ink, toner or ribbons. Due to the nature of mobile working, thermal printing enables the machine to be mounted however possible, in any orientation, and can also be carried around without the risk of spillages, leaks and smudges. Regular PocketJet customers have also found thermal printing to be ideal for in-vehicle use because it is less susceptible to fluctuating seasonal temperatures and humidity extremes than other mobile technologies.

Comes with an integrated USB 2.0 and IrDA interface, and a Bluetooth technology, the PocketJet 6 Plus is truly the best printing companion. Speed wise, the PocketJet 6 Plus performs just how it is mentioned on the paper
