Designed to speed up the mobile printing market via higher performance and durability is the MB200i. Reportedly the fastest in its class with a 32-bit CPU for high-throughput printing speeds to 4 in./sec, the MB200i handles a maximal 2.6-in. roll dia, meaning fewer roll changes and less downtime, with an outer polycarbonate construction and a shock-absorbing mechanism adding to its durability. An on-board mobile processor automatically reduces power consumption by shutting down unneeded or idle on-chip circuitry and doubling operation time per battery charge vs some competitors, the co. says. Bluetooth and 802.11b wireless Ethernet connectivity are available as optional factory-installed interface modules.
