The Zebra LP 2824 Plus monochrome direct thermal label desktop printer has a 32-bit processor, prints 4" per second in black at 203 dpi, and can be used to print barcode labels or other media up to 2.2" wide. Direct thermal printers use heat instead of ink and are typically smaller, quieter, faster, and more energy-efficient than dot-matrix printers. The LP 2824 Plus is compact for installation in limited spaces and it is ideal for printing small labels. It can print up to 4" per second at 203 dpi (dots per inch) and prints labels up to 39" long. The 32-bit processor combined with the 8 MB of SDRAM memory and 4 MB of flash memory offers faster first label printing with extensive media graphics. ZPL, ZPL II, EPL, EPL-Page Mode, EPL2, and Line Mode programming languages are standard.
The LP 2824 Plus printer's double-walled casing is made of ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), which helps resist impact. An open-access design facilitates media loading. Serial and USB ports allow connectivity to a computer or other devices (cables sold separately). The printer automatically detects installed media and calibrates to the media type and length for accurate printing. A reflective sensor allows the printer to identify the gaps, holes, notches, or black marks between labels to print the labels accurately. A transmissive sensor enables it to detect when a roll of media has run out. An odometer can be used to track the print length. The reset button can be pressed and held to restore the printer to its default settings. The auto-detectable power adapter can accept AC power between 100 and 240 volts. This product is suitable for use with black bar, black mark, continuous, continuous receipt, die-cut, fanfold, gap, linerless, notch, notched, notch-sensing, perforated, receipt, roll-fed, tag, or tag stock media (all sold separately). The maximum outside diameter for rolls is 5".
