Product Specifications

With one of the smallest footprints of any two-inch desktop printer in the industry, the LP and TLP 2824 fit into places other printers cannot, without sacrificing speed, print quality or media capacity. This space conservation is great for the typically congested areas around cash registers, desks, and countertops. For easy integration with existing systems and a variety of applications, the LP/TLP 2824 printers also offer the widest range of interface choices, including serial, parallel, USB, internal, or external Ethernet with the ZebraNet PrintServer II option, and an optional cash drawer kicker interface (LP only). Their sturdy, dual-wall, high-density plastic construction ensures they will survive punishment that would damage other printers in their class. A full five-inch media roll is easily loaded into the LP/TLP 2824 printers thanks to the OpenACCESS design, and media usage can be monitored through the clear top cover.
