Trident has introduced a mobile printer/plotter that simplifies in-vehicle installation and integrates more easily into mobile computing systems.

The 812 from Printrex is currently used in emergency-services vehicles, railroad locomotives and commercial jet-aircraft.

It connects directly to an in-vehicle 12 or 24V power system, without the need for additional power conditioning or protection.

To minimise load on the vehicle battery, the printer goes into a low-power ‘suspend’ mode during inactive periods, reducing power consumption to just 100mW.

The printer returns automatically to active mode when printing is initiated.

The new housing is easy to mount on vertical or horizontal surfaces.

Mounting options include rubber feet for desk use or shock mounts for a fixed horizontal installation.

The printer can also be attached to a horizontal or vertical bulkhead via a quick-release adaptor plate.

The printer carries an e-mark according to Automotive Directive 2006/28/EC.

The Printrex 812 from Trident integrates easily with mobile computing platforms.

It features USB and parallel printer ports.

It is supplied with Vista as well as Windows 2000 and XP printer drivers.

Print speed is normally one inch per second (25 mm/s), though this is reduced automatically if the input voltage drops below 12V and at low temperatures to maintain print quality.

Print density is eight dots/mm horizontally and vertically.
