Hamden, CT – November 7, 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 EMS World Expo, the largest EMS industry show in North America, to be held at the Music City Center in Nashville, TN on November 9-13, 2014. Appearing in Booth #637, TransAct will display its revolutionary new RESPONDER MP2™ mobile printing solution for the machine-to-machine (“M2M”) marketplace, including for EMS applications, as well as demonstrate the features and functionality of its Printrex® 920 and Printrex® 422 printers.
Designed specifically as a ruggedized printing solution for the rapidly growing M2M marketplace – expected by various industry sources to reach $86 billion by 2017 when including hardware components, technologies and related applications – the RESPONDER MP2 is an ideal choice for fleet vehicles, including those used in EMS applications such as fire trucks, police cars and emergency medical vehicles. Thanks to the continued rise in cloud-base systems and applications across a variety of vehicle fleets, the RESPONDER MP2 from TransAct is positioned as a critical mobile print solution for users that need a state-of-the-art printer which produces reliable, quality output on the road.
Launched in partnership with Printek, a leading integrator in the police car market, 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.
TransAct will also be demonstrating the features of a pair of its Printrex printing solutions at EMS World Expo:
• Printrex 920 – A full color thermal 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 and is capable of printing in black and white on standard thermal paper, providing the ultimate in flexibility.
• Printrex 422 – Used in vehicle-based applications and designed for compatibility with 12-volt and 24-volt vehicle power systems, the Printrex 422 offers a 4.3-inch print width at speeds of up to 2 inches per second. The printer can be mounted in a variety of vehicle types using both panel-mount and cased configurations, and meets the stringent heavy-duty truck requirements of SAE J1455.
