The new TTP-247 thermal transfer desktop barcode printer series delivers
more performance for the price than any other printer in its class.
Based on the design of its best-selling predecessor, the TTP-245 Plus,
the TTP-247 runs at an impressive 7 inches per second, printing up to 4
inches wide at 203 dpi resolution. A second model in the series ÔÇô the
TTP-345 ÔÇô offers high resolution 300 dpi printing at 5 inches per
second. Both models offer 8 MB of SDRAM and 4 MB of onboard Flash
memory. Gigabytes of Flash memory can be added via an onboard SDHC card
TTP-247 series offers USB 2.0, parallel and serial connectivity, plus an
optional Ethernet port for networking. It also incorporates the
TSPL-EZÔäó printer-control language, which is fully compatible with
other TSC printer languages, while supporting TPLE (Translation Printer
Language Eltron┬«) and TPLZ (Translation Printer Language Zebra┬«). The
languages automatically decipher and translate the format of each label
as it is sent to the printer. TSPL-EZÔäó also features internal scalable
True Type fonts (based on the Monotype┬« font engine), which are
typically found only in more expensive printers.
Like its predecessor, the TTP-247 series features a user-friendly
clamshell design for easy drop-in media loading, along with a rugged
double-wall design that is stronger and more durable than other thermal
transfer mechanisms on the market. Its innovative two-motor gear-driven
engine is powerful enough to handle a 300-meter-long ribbon and label
rolls up to 8.4 inches in diameter.
By using two motors instead of the usual one, TTP-247 series printers
operate at lower torque, reducing noise, decreasing wear and tear, and
extending printer life. The platformÔÇÖs user-friendly design makes it
easy for operators to load and unload ribbons, and its 300-meter
capacity is more than four times the industry-standard length for
The TTP-247 series holds up to a 5-inch OD roll on a 1-inch core and,
using an optional external media hanger, can accommodate a full 8.4-inch
OD label roll on a 3-inch core. With its many performance features and
budget-friendly price, the TTP-247 series is by far one of the most
attractive thermal transfer barcode printers on the market.
