Major upgrades to Epson portable products

Print Solutions

Epson has announced significant improvements to each of the products in its TM-P series of portable thermal receipt printers. The upgraded products, which form the TM-PII Series, will not only further enhance the user experience in existing markets, such as retail and hospitality, but unlock their potential for use in new markets, including in-vehicle applications. The TM-PII Series will further consolidate Epson’s position in the global market for thermal portable printers, which is expected to almost double in size (82% growth) between 2019 and 2026.

While specific improvements differ slightly between products, several key enhancements apply to all products in the TM-PII Series (the TM-P20II, TMP-80II and TM-P80II AC). All products, for example, now offer increased impact resistance, and are certified to provide dust and waterproof protection to IP54 standards. They also feature USB-C connectivity, as well as support for Bluetooth 5.0 ‘classic’ and low energy modes, providing excellent range, seamless pairing and outstanding battery life. With increased wireless performance through Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac), all products also feature the Wi-Fi ‘Direct’ (peer to peer) mode, enabling direct connection of up to eight devices, without the need to connect to a network or hotspot. All upgraded products are also approved for in-vehicle use, making them ideal for transportation applications, such as a taxis or on-board ticketing, and logistics applications such as payment on-delivery or invoicing.

Designed for easy cleaning, all products feature a smooth and stylish design, while both of the three inch models (TM-P80II and TM-P80II AC) are significantly lighter (23% and 10% respectively) than their predecessors. The TM-80II AC also now includes an auto cutter, de-curler and Qi compliant wireless charging. All products can be mounted onto a belt, or shoulder carried (accessories optional), and include a Desktop Mode (rubber feet), as a convenient alternative to a fixed station printer. The revised ‘quick start’ sheet, which includes QR codes that link to video guides, makes set up and configuration fast and easy.

As part of its commitment to environmental sustainability, Epson has reduced the overall packaging required to ship the products and maximised the use of cardboard. In addition, the power supply has been de-bundled from the main product, to allow freedom of user choice and to eliminate any resulting e-waste.
