Beaverton, OR, United States, 2008/12/10 - The Mobile Print Station 150, a new label design platform introduced by Graphic Products, Inc., provides maximum portability and practical functionality for use with DuraLabel brand industrial label printers.
Engineered for ease of use in industrial environments, the Mobile Print Station 150 is a small notebook computer featuring an active matrix TFT LCD display panel, auxiliary keyboard, touchpad, battery pack, and a user-friendly interface. It also boasts a tough, shock-resistant constructional design.
Weighing less than two lbs., the MPS 150 is intended to facilitate quicker label-making design. It is easy to carry and can be placed, along with a DuraLabel printer, closer to the areas and equipment where labels and signs need to be applied. The introduction of the MPS 150 means connecting a DuraLabel printer to a conventional desktop or laptop computer is no longer necessary to produce labels.
“What you get with the Mobile Print Station 150 is a reliable product that more conveniently meets your label-making needs. For the work you do, you don’t need a lot of horsepower. But it’s nice to have a smaller machine with the specifications and features you need to optimize your label-making jobs,” said Bob Martell, product engineering manager at Graphic Products.
The MPS 150 has a 7” diagonal screen size and viewable resolution of 800 x 480, and a scrolling screen allows an effective resolution of 800 x 600. The display screen provides excellent viewing free of flickering and radiation, which minimizes eye strain, said Martell.
Battery life is approximately 2.8 hours, and as much as 500 ft. of label supply can be printed with a fully charged battery.
Some additional specifications for the MPS 150 include:
● Processor: 800 MHz Intel Celeron M
● Memory: 512MB Ram DDR2
● Connectivity: 3 USB ports, 1 MMC/SD(SDHC) slot
● Operating system: Windows XP Embedded
● Battery life: up to 2.8hrs working; 3 hrs charge; 15hrs standby
● Storage: 2GB solid state HD; 500MB available to user
● External USB Drive: 256MB for loading templates and backup
● External video display port.
MPS 150 comes with all the preinstalled software needed for creating labels and signs. Printer drivers are also preinstalled. This means you can connect it to a DuraLabel printer and commence your jobs. Preinstalled software includes the following:
● OpenOffice Writer & Spreadsheet, Industrial Labeling Suite, EZBarCode, MS Calculator, MS Paint, MS Media Player 6.4, Acrobat Reader 8, selected MS Control Panels
● DuraLabel templates and symbols
● Videos, manuals, “How To” guides, and label picture samples
