SATO Launches New Desktop Label Printer

SATO, a barcode and RFID technology company, has launched its WS4 compact desktop label printer line. The WS4 has applications in retail, healthcare, logistics and manufacturing workplaces, SATO says.

The WS4 is available in two models, thermal transfer (TT) or direct thermal (DT), and can be used to print labels, receipts, tags and wristbands at a resolution of 203 or 305dpi, SATO says. It offers print throughput speeds up to 6 ips and has a flexible media handling feature for 300m ribbon lengths, face-in or face-out medias and auto-calibration with adjustable sensor positioning.

Universally designed with USB, RS232 and Ethernet, these industry interfaces are standard in the WS4 model. The series also offers optional Bluetooth or 802.11 WLAN communications.

All WS4 printers are configured with on-board competitive emulations (SBPL, SZPL, SEPL, SDPL, SIPL), and auto-detection of the command stream being used. A three-color LED lamp system shows printer status at a glance.

“The WS4 series sets new standards of affordability, versatility and value,” said Gary Krause, SATO’s senior director of marketing. “Simplistic operation with dynamic features not generally seen at such affordable price points make it the best choice for enterprise wide installations.”
