TallyGenicom Introduces Hybrid Thermal Barcode Printer
May 6, 2008 Alex Woodie
TallyGenicom next week will begin delivery of the new 7000 series of thermal printer, a so-called “hybrid” printer because it can be used as a desktop barcode printer or as a dedicated midrange printer.
There are three printers in TallyGenicom’s new line, including the Model 7005, the Model 7006, and the Model 7008. All three printers work with a wide range of computer systems via support for the ZPL, EPL, PCL5 datastreams. They also support direct thermal and thermal transfer printing at resolutions up to 203 dots per inch (DPI) and feature metal print mechanisms as opposed to ones made of plastic, which differentiates the printers from the competition, according to TallyGenicom.
The entry-level Model 7005 starts at $635, is available in 2-inch and 4-inch widths, prints at speeds up to five inches per second (IPS), and connects to hosts via USB cables. The middle range Model 7006 starts at $785, is available in 2.4-inch and 4-inch widths, supports the CPL datastream and resolutions up to 300 DPI, prints at speeds up to six IPS, and connects to hosts via USB, parallel, serial, and Ethernet connections.
The high-end Model 7008 printer starts at $999, is available in 2.4- and 4.3- inch widths, supports resolutions up to 300 DPI, features an LCD screen, prints at speeds up to 8 IPS, and connects to hosts via USB, parallel, serial, and Ethernet connections.
