Wireless Printers Add Versatility to Printing Tasks on
the Open Road
Designed for the Road Warrior, the Zebra RW series of mobile
printers are ideal for printing delivery receipts and invoices on
the go. The modular design allows users to choose among
wireless options, card readers, and integral accessories such as
vehicle mounts for simplified route printing. Easy-access vehicle
mounting cradles and charging options as well as user-intuitive
interfaces and angled displays enhance the convenience and
simplicity of mobile printing.
Rough and Ready Durability for Reliable Printing
Uniquely designed for harsh outdoor environments, RW series
mobile printers endure extreme temperatures and weather
conditions. Bounce it in the truck, carry it in the rain, drop it to
the pavement, and expect the same performance day in and
day out.
Resilient and lightweight, these
IP54-certified printers can withstand
the harsh demands of a number of
route accounting and field service
printing applications, including:
• Invoices
• Delivery receipts
• Service estimates
• Sales orders
• Inventory management
• Mobile point-of-sale
• DEX*
* DEX communication for Direct Store Delivery (U.S. only)
