TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, has just launched a new robust entry-level thermal transfer printer. The new T2212 printer is easy to operate and, with its small footprint, it can be installed in either an office or industrial environment. The printer produces a high-quality print on a range of our printable tubing, tags and label products. Continuous Tube product will require an external reel holder. Optimal printing results on TE identification products can be achieved by using the printer in conjunction with the recommended ribbon and WINTOTAL software.
The new T2212 model features an upgraded CPU and firmware, making it more powerful compared to the T200-IDENT printer. It has a full-color touch screen that uses intuitive icon-based setting adjustments. Its memory is pre-loaded with “help” videos that can reduce the need to consult manuals or call technical support. The printer is equipped with USB and Ethernet ports as well as an RS-232 serial interface and slot for a flash card, enabling the printer to be connected to all sorts of sources for direct printing. WiFi printing is also possible with the addition of a WiFi dongle, which is available as an accessory. Further printer accessory information, including external reel holders, can be found at TE.com within the Identification & Labelling section.
The T2212 printer is also available with WINTOTAL v7 software, which supports high quality printing applications. WINTOTAL is a label/marker design package that makes printing simple. Running in the familiar Windows environment, the software has over 2,500 standard TE identification products pre-installed. This makes the creation and printing of identification products a quick and simple task.
“The T2212 is versatile, reliable and affordable,” says Tom Bartlett, product specialist. “With its 300dpi resolution, it provides high quality prints that are easy to read on a variety of products. Print legibility has been tested and approved on TE identification products when using the recommended ribbon. With our products, hardware, software and technical support, we offer a complete identification solution for all of our customers.” Printer Specialist Thierry Skorupski adds: “After months of printer testing, we have found that this entry-level printer combines ease of use while remaining very robust. The T2212 is suited to run small batches of production and is capable of withstanding more intense demand. This desktop printer can be setup in your office or workshops and will become a valuable tool.”
