JADAK, a manufacturer of machine vision, radio-frequency identification (RFID), bar code scanning and printing solutions for health care and life science industries, will launch XE-80P, a portable, battery-powered thermal printer and chart recorder, at Medica 2015 expo scheduled to begin in Dusseldorf, Germany, from November 16-19. MEDICA is the world's largest medical marketplace expo annually organised in November.
The XE-80P's unique Charge-on-Demand feature allows the user to choose when the printer will charge, which reserves all power for the host device's functions during a critical event. The XE-80P is the first printer JADAK will launch for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) since General Scanning Printer Technologies became part of JADAK in June 2015.
"We are excited to continue to grow the JADAK portfolio with the addition of the XE-80P chart recorder and thermal printer," said David Miller, president of JADAK, who added, "JADAK is known as a leader for best-in-class data collection platforms and service solutions with world-class engineering resources. Now we can put those same resources behind developing chart recorders and thermal printers with advanced features, such as the Charge-on-Demand technology, and provide OEMs with technologies that help the health care industry improve overall care."
The compact, durable XE-80P is the only chart recorder and thermal printer to require a single USB cable for charging and communicating with other devices, compared to a two-part cable and adapter. The unit, which requires minimal power to operate, is outfitted with a long-lasting battery that will generally outlast the host device.
Optional Bluetooth connectivity is available. The XE-80P supports 80mm paper and provides the options and security that OEMs demand in a chart recorder. It is suitable for use as a portable printing solution in the emergency medical field, or in hospital and laboratory installations, seamlessly transitioning to printing patient information, graphics, waveforms and linear (1-D) and matrix (2-D) bar codes.
JADAK will showcase six additional technologies that are designed to help OEMs solve health care scanning, inspection, tracking and photonics challenges. Like all JADAK offerings, the solutions can be optimized to meet specific customer needs and requirements.
