TSC PEX-1121 Thermal Transfer Print Engine 203dpi (4" wide) - Right Hand

The innovative PEX Series 4-inch Performance Print Engine incorporates a robust die-cast construction designed for years of reliability, ease of use, and cost-conscious serviceability. The PEX Series combines a precision print mechanism with high performance electronics to produce labels at up to 18 inches per second. In addition, the PEX Series supports 203, 300, and 600 dpi resolutions for all of your label formatting needs.

Designed for ease of integration, the PEX Series features a bolt-compatible construction with a commonly used GPIO interface and an easy to use color display. The PEX Series offers simple integration into both new and existing label application installations. It is ideal for manufacturing and logistic applications where high speed and high demand label printing is required.

Rugged Design

  • Rugged design with die-casting structure ensures a stable media path for outstanding print quality and accuracy.
  • The powerful peel-off capability fits various label widths, particularly suited for small label sizes.

High Performance

  • The PEX Series can print high quality labels at 18 inches per second, one of the fastest speeds on the market. With the high precision label positioning, it can print labels as small as 5 mm in height.
  • It offers multiple connectivity options including USB, GPIO, parallel, serial, Ethernet, USB host and optional 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless and Bluetooth 4.0 module.

Easy to Maintain

  • With rear-side drawer design, users can access quickly for maintenance. Its modularized media drive system supports an easy replacement.
Powerful Programming Tools
  • In addition to being designed for ultimate compatibility with existing installations, the PEX-1000 features all the power of TSC's innovative TSPL-EZD firmware. The firmware supports out-of-the-box compatibility with the ZPL and DPL label languages used in many print and apply applications.
  • The TSPL programming language can be used to take data streams from multiple sources, capture the needed data fields and insert them into label output. These powerful onboard programming tools can replace the need for additional computer hardware, providing end users with potentially huge savings.
