NEWS – JADAK Introduces New Thermal Printer and Chart Recorder for Portable and Stand-Alone Medical Printing Applications
November 10, 2015 - Industry News
Syracuse, N.Y. – JADAK, a manufacturer of machine vision, radio-frequency identification (RFID), barcode scanning and printing solutions for the health care and life sciences industries, will introduce the XE-80P, a portable, battery-powered thermal printer and chart recorder, in mid-November at Medica in Düsseldorf, Germany. The XE-80P’s unique Charge-on-Demand™ feature allows the user to choose when the printer will charge, which reserves all power for the host device’s functions during a critical event. The XE-80P is the first printer JADAK will launch for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) since General Scanning Printer Technologies became part of JADAK in June 2015.
“The XE-80P was designed specifically with medical device OEMs in mind,” said David Miller, president of JADAK. “Its durability, compact size and Charge-on-Demand feature make the XE-80P a unique OEM printer offering, especially for portable printing applications.”
“The Charge-on-Demand feature differentiates the XE-80P from other mobile printing solutions, particularly those printers used in the emergency medical field,” said Scott Oppenheim, director of product management, printer technologies at JADAK. “Using this game-changing technology, especially when the printer is used with a defibrillator, it won’t charge or draw current during an emergency event, saving all power for the critical lifesaving functions of the defibrillator.”
The XE-80P is the only chart recorder and thermal printer to require a single USB cable for charging and communicating with other devices, compared with a two-part cable and adapter. The unit, which requires minimal power to operate, is outfitted with a long-lasting battery that will generally outlast the host device. Optional Bluetooth connectivity is available.
The compact, lightweight chart recorder supports 80mm paper and provides the ease of a standard printer with the options and security that OEMs demand in a chart recorder. In addition to being used as a portable printing solution in the emergency medical field, the XE-80P is well-suited for use in hospital and laboratory installations. It can seamlessly transition and print patient information, graphics, waveforms and linear (1-D) and matrix (2-D) bar codes.
As with all JADAK products, the company provides a full suite of support and services for the XE-80P, including cost-effective ways to adapt the platform to meet customer-specific needs and requirements.
