TSC adds Wi-Fi and Bluetooth printing options to its desktop and industrial printers
The TSC WiFi 802.11 b/g/n module provides for secure data transfer of sensitive information over existing 802.11 b/g/n wireless networks at 11Mbps and is compatible with both infrastructure or Adhoc modes. Security protocols supported include WEP, WPA/WPA2-PSK, Enterprise, EAP-FAST, EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS and PEAP. Networking protocols supported include UDP, TCP/IP, DHCP, ARP, DNS and HTTP/HTTPS Client and Server.
TSC has introduced two new wireless printing options to its desktop and industrial printer lines – a new 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi module and a new low-cost Bluetooth module, a feature already offered with TSC’s portable printer.
Both options simplify the connection of multiple network devices and can reduce costs by eliminating the clutter and cost of printer cabling. They make it easy to produce labels from remote locations, especially in facilities where production lines are frequently being reconfigured or where cabling is either inconvenient or impossible.
Both modules can be installed by the end-user and easily programmed using TSC's DiagTool setup software. Setup is simple and takes just a few minutes.
The TSC Bluetooth module makes it easy for printers to communicate with a wide variety of peripherals – Bluetooth-enabled barcode scanners, personal data terminals (PDT), mobile computers, tablets and other devices – over distances of up to 30 feet from fixed and mobile devices.
In the past, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth were used mostly with mobile battery-operated printers. With the addition of both options to its desktop and industrial class printers, TSC now makes it easy and cost-effective for users with fixed-position bar code printers to support virtually any cable-free bar code labeling application, including ticket printing, shelf marking, inventory marking and patient ID tracking.
