MtP400 Printers have been redesigned with a new sleek black look and are 13% lighter than ever!

MtP400 printers are rugged, four-inch portable thermal printers that are ideal for label printing, as well as a printer for receipts, maps, and schematics. Designed to print in any orientation, the printer can be easily transported, mounted in a vehicle or carried on a belt or shoulder. Couple that with the printer's wide range of media options and you'll find the MtP400 to be the perfect mobile printing partner for your needs.

The MtP400SL (slimline version) is a space-saving configuration which uses a convenient cut sheet paper cassette with simple drop-in loading. The pre-cut sheets present perfectly every time (i.e., minimum curling) and no tear off is required. The standard MtP400 model accepts a large continuous roll for a maximum number of print jobs between reloads. The MtP400LP is a thermal label printer optimized for label printing and includes gap sensing.

MtP series printers feature best-in-breed power management, full on board menu selections, a useful suite of integration and configuration utilities and tools, advanced security features on bluetooth models, and emulations of popular printer brands. MtP printers are a virtual drop-in solution for many existing mobile printing applications.

All MtP printer models can withstand repeated 4-foot drops to concrete and are backed by a comprehensive standard warranty that covers the entire printer case, battery and print head for one full year. Many mobile printer vendors offer warranties limited to 90 days on the battery and six months on the print head. Extended warranties are available.

A variety of accessories are available including: an AC wall adapter, vehicle mounting bracket, 4-bay external battery charger, 3-track simultaneous read MCR and an environmental case.
