A-3140
The A-3140 desktop thermal transfer printer offers 300dpi resolution and is ideal for printing
high quality text and graphic labels such as for logos, small items such as jewelry, or for
information labels. Printing up to a rapid four inches per second, the A-3140 has a 32-bit
A-3140
microprocessor, as well as 8MB Flash and 8MB DRAM internal memory for high print quality.
Easily integrating with your current system, the A-3140 connects through standard serial
ports and a USB interface. You can load a maximum 5" OD media roll and a see-through
window lets you see when it’s time to reload. Four auto-calibration modes and reflective
and transmissive sensors handle a broad range of media for printing up to 50-inches in
length. Barcode support includes 1D/GS1 Data bar, 2D/Composite codes and QR barcodes.
For high quality printing, the user-friendly A-3140 provides outstanding and cost-effective
performance.
A-2240
A-2240(A-2240E)
The A-2240 thermal transfer printer features fast performance, easy integration, and a
compact, stylish design. Rapid printing performance of up to five inches per second relies
on a 32-bit microprocessor and built-in 4MB Flash and 8MB DRAM memory. Offering flexible
connectivity with standard serial ports, and a USB interface, this printer is easy to integrate
with existing systems. An optional Ethernet interface (A-2240E) allows convenient connection
to networks. A see-through window lets users check on when to reload media. Centralized
printing alignment allows a maximum 5" OD media roll. Reflective and transmissive sensors
offer convenient handling of a broad range of media up to 100-inches in length. The printer
A-2240E
offers an additional fixed transmissive sensor for tag applications such as used by the apparel
industry. It also supports 1D/GS1 Data Bar, 2D/Composite codes and QR barcodes.
The A-2240 is an easy-to-use entry-level printer that delivers exceptional value.
