Hamden, CT – April 4, 2014 – TransAct Technologies Incorporated (Nasdaq: TACT), a global leader in market-specific solutions, including printers, terminals, software and other products for transaction-based and other industries, announced today the Company’s participation at the 2014 Fire Department Instructors’ Conference (“FDIC”), one of the world’s largest shows targeting the firefighting industry, to be held at the Indianapolis Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN on April 7-12, 2014. For the first time, TransAct (Booth #9524) will publicly display its recently introduced RESPONDER MP2™ mobile printing solution for the machine-to-machine (“M2M”) marketplace. The Company will also be displaying the features and functionality of its Printrex® 920 and Printrex® 422 printers.
Designed from the ground up as a mobile printing solution for the rapidly growing M2M marketplace, the RESPONDER MP2 has been developed for installation in a wide variety of fleet vehicles. The M2M marketplace – inclusive of hardware components, technologies and related applications – has been estimated by various industry sources at $86 billion by 2017 and with the continued rise in the use of cloud-based systems and applications across a wide variety of vehicle fleets, TransAct’s new mobile print solution is a critical component for users looking for a state-of-the-art printer that will produce reliable, quality output while on the road. And its rugged design makes the RESPONDER MP2 a natural fit for fire trucks and emergency medical vehicles.
The RESPONDER MP2 delivers full-page print widths of up to 8.5 inches from a device that fully integrates the printer and paper source. It leverages M2M technology to print information sent from a Web-connected device (such as a laptop or tablet) via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and also supports a direct connection to the printer. Featuring a compact, low-profile, all-in-one configuration, it dramatically simplifies use of the printer in the field, removing the hassle of paper feeding and allowing users to continuously print once a paper roll is loaded. Additionally, the RESPONDER MP2 offers fleet operators a nearly unlimited array of mounting options – including vertical, horizontal, and upside-down roof installations – and can even be used without a fixed installation.
In addition to the RESPONDER MP2, the Company will also be displaying at FDIC 2014 two of its Printrex printers:
• The Printrex 920 is a full color printer/plotter designed for easy installation thanks to its rugged rack-mount configuration. It uses ZINK® Zero Ink to print in full color without ink cartridges or ribbons. In addition, the Printrex 920 is capable of printing in black and white on standard thermal paper, providing the ultimate in flexibility.
• The Printrex 422 is used in vehicle-based applications and is designed for use with 12-volt and 24-volt vehicle power systems. Offering a 4.3-inch print width at speeds of up to 2 inches per second, the Printrex 422 can be mounted in a variety of vehicle types using both panel-mount and cased configurations. In addition, the printer meets the stringent heavy-duty truck requirements of SAE J1455.
