Our portable handheld printers

As technology advances, we at Martel are always investigating what types of communication interfaces developers are looking to adopt, which is why our latest MCP2800 thermal printer has been designed with USB-C and Bluetooth communication. USB-C provides the device manufacturer with ease of connectivity by being a widely recognised wired interface, whilst Bluetooth is the most commonly used short range wireless connection. For ease of adoption, we support both BTLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) and Bluetooth Classic.

Martel also provides Infrared and RS232 connectivity which gives the OEM the ability to support their equipment with more traditional communication methodologies, thereby protecting their existing product portfolio, whilst aiding in their transition of new product development.

Our portable, hand-held printer range has been designed to emulate popular software protocol and industry-standard dimensions, but all of our products are further configurable to your needs if required.  Easy communications protocols mean they can be swiftly connected to your device at the time of measurement and able to print instantly.

Ideal for on-site instant results outputs, they are designed for maximum versatility, printing in a wide range of languages and character sizes and numerous font stylings can be applied to text and graphics.
