Fujitsu distributor Inelco Hunter has announced the availability of a new 3” mobile printer for use in environments where a regular mobile printer just doesn’t cut it. 
With a rugged design, the FTP-638WSL201 printer is exceptionally strong, durable, hard-wearing and shock-resistant, making it suitable for use in harsh environments, inside or outdoor.

Warehouse, maintenance and logistic areas are not the best environments for delicate equipment. The same goes for hospitality areas. Fujitsu’s FTP-638WSL201 printer has been designed for mobile use in locations like these where knocks and drops are liable to happen.

The rugged Fujitsu printer is able to withstand a drop from a height of 2.1 meters, and has a water resistance rating of IP54. This means it will be protected against contamination from limited amounts of dust and other particles and as well as remaining operational when exposed to splashes of water.

The printer is designed from a user and programmer point-of-view, making the printer easy to operate and also easy to integrate. The FTP-638WSL201 offers ESCPOS, CPCL and ZPL emulation. This will enable setting-up for any application with minimum effort.

Featuring a built-in LCD screen, the FTP-638WSL201 printer provides a high level of information and potential customisation, enabling direct control of the communications interface and set-gap or blackmark positions while allowing closer monitoring of the printer status and battery levels. Using an innovative design, the printer can accommodate a larger than commonly-used paper roll, providing a paper width of 50-80mm on non-fixed positions. This helps to reduce downtime for the user when it comes to replacing the paper roll as well adding flexibility in the field.

The FTP-638WSL201 offers a variety of different connectivity options, including USB, Bluetooth, WLAN, and NFC. Battery life of the printer will depend on the communication protocol used. However, users can expect the standard battery to print a paper length per battery charge of 200m, which equals 4170 tickets of 48mm length depending on several variables.

The FTP-638WSL201 printer comes with a range of industry-standard accessories, including a carrying belt, AC adapter, USB cable, and battery.
