It has the flexibility to either be worn using a shoulder strap or belt clip, or it can be mounted to a mobile cart or fork truck. This electronics device features a large onboard flash memory which allows users to store frequently used label formats and graphics on the printer, eliminating the need to access files from the host system, which, in turn, helps to improve label throughput. It also combines high speed electronics and the ability to print the full width of all pixels simultaneously
