PRODUCT POSITIONING
The MB200i product is equipped with serial (RS232) communication and Infrared (IR) ports; however,
support for IrDA has been expanded on the MB200i, to include IrCOMM (3-wired Cooked mode that
can be used with PC and PDA connection), IrOBEX (Cell phone connection) and BHT (scanners) in
addition to the common IrSIR protocol. IrDA communication is ideal for short-range wireless
communication where low power and secure data exchange is important.
The MB200i series has some enhanced communications and security features built into its optional
802.11b wireless module. For shorter-range non-line of site wireless communications, Bluetooth is an
option as well.
The MB200i series features a durable, lightweight, smooth edged polycarbonate body and shockabsorbing mechanism to withstand the impact of mobile printer application use. The MB200i series
was designed to withstand drops of 2m (6.56’) on all 6 flat sides.
These printers are the fastest in their class. By combining a high speed energy saving CPU, high
torque motors, enhanced electronics and the latest in battery power technology, these printers
achieve a stunning print speed of up to 4 inches per second (103mm/s).
The large label capacity (2.63" OD roll size) allows for more labels per roll than most of the
competition while remaining the most compact and lightweight in its class.

PRODUCT FEATURES
3.1
Electrical Design
3.1.1 Low Power Consumption and Intelligent Mobile Processor
MB200i uses a 32-bit RISC SH-3 CPU that operates with a large 32-kilobyte (32KB), one-cycle
access cache memory, and offers lower power consumption of 200mW during normal operation and
high throughput. Another great feature of this CPU is that it can automatically reduce power
consumption by halting the operation of specific on-chip functions whenever they are in idle states,
resulting in extended operation time. The printer mechanism is controlled by a motor with high-speed
and advanced technology, ensuring the MB200i can print at a faster speed of up to 4 inches per
second (103mm/s)

SATO’s MB200i adopted a new battery cell technology, which increases the current capacity without
any increase in size and weight. With a higher current rating battery cell, the printer can print more
labels on a single battery charge. An optional gang charger is available for fast and easy battery
charging of up to 5 batteries simultaneously.
3.1.3 Memory with Large User Storage Area
SATO’s MB200i offers a larger memory capacity to store user-defined information. Memory

The standard interface for MB200i is RS232 and IRDA (Infrared). Bluetooth and Wireless LAN are
also available as optional factory fitted interface modules. The built-in wireless module in the MB200i
is compliant with Wireless LAN IEEE802.11b standard.
The printer features network security options such as 802.1X authentication, 64/128-bit WEP
encryption, and supports WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) for both 802.1x and WPA-PSK.esax.

Mechanical Design
3.2.1
Polycarbonate Construction – RoHS Compliant
Smooth Edged,
Modular Design
Light and
Portable Printer
Optional Holster or
Water-Proof Case
The printer's polycarbonate construction offers high performance properties suitable for most mobile
applications in harsh environments. This advanced material body provides MB200i with operating
capabilities in normal as well as extreme printing conditions ranging from 5°F to 122°F (-15°C to
50°C) 30%-80% non-condensing relative humidity. The cover is reinforced for extra shock-absorbing
protection. Additionally, the polycarbonate material is virtually unbreakable with its ability to withstand
drops to concrete on its flat surfaces from 2M.
In addition, vibration endurance tests also prove that the MB200i is able to operate while undergoing
36,000 vibrations without damage.
An optional waterproof case is available and protects the printer allowing its operation during
inclimate weather conditions. These covers are waterproof-certified to comply with the JIS protection
Level 3 standard.
RoHS Directive
The printer complies with the RoHS Directive, which guarantees that the printer body does not
contain the RoHS constrained substances (toxic metals commonly found in industrial workplaces)
above the concentration values. The RoHS constraints are:
Chromium compounds
Lead and its compounds
Mercury and its compounds
Cadmium and its compounds
Polybrominated biphenyl (PBB)
Polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE)
below 0.1%
below 0.1%
below 0.1%
below 0.01%
below 0.1%
below 0.1%
The absence of such toxins from this product reduces health risks to users and the environment in
term of pollution. It also ensures that the product can be sold into Europe, which requires all devices
adhere to the RoHS. By summer of 2006 it is expected that the US will also require these same
requirements. The entire unit also features anti-bacterial protection embedded on the outer-cover of
the printer unit. This is especially helpful for the health conscious and for hospital applications.

3.2.2 Large LCD
The MB200i printer that is equipped with the optional wireless 802.11b interface module features a
large LCD. The size of the LCD is 1.18" W (30mm) x .87" H (22mm). Its icon drive intuitive display
allows the user to easily monitor the battery life, error messages and wireless LAN connectivity
strength.
3.2.3 Large Media Capacity
The MB200i supports a media capacity size of up to 2.64" OD (67mm). The larger roll capacity of the
MB200i allows for 37% more label capacity thereby reducing the amount of roll changes, increasing
employee productivity

SATO MOBILE PRINTING SOLUTION & POCKET GALLERY
Click and Print
Pocket Label Gallery is an add-on module to the Label Gallery software to enable the MB200i printer
to operate with Windows™ CE enabled handheld terminals. With the release of Label Gallery 2.0 this
software features a True Pro version with the option to add multiple user (terminals) licensing.
1. Direct Printing from Terminal - you can send label information to the printer directly from the
Pocket Label Galley application from its print command menu.
2. Distributed Printing - This approach will create a "print file" and send it to the respective
clients/server, which they are interconnected in a Local Area Network environment through a
TCP/IP socket connection. The "print file" contains information about the destination of
printer-to-printer, print quantity and label data to be printed.
3. Print Application Programmable Interface (Command Library) - provide an API so that
programmers can write custom applications that are consistent with the operating
environment.
