Selecting the best Rugged Mobile Barcode Printers for your needs!
Finding the best Rugged Mobile Barcode Printer starts with understanding the design and performance features that differentiate mobile printers from one another. This is critical to finding the right equipment for industrial applications. Point of transaction printing improves worker productivity, label accuracy and customer responsiveness. But choosing the wrong device can seriously affect the performance of a business and there return on investment. Higher ruggedness results in less lost productivity and lower device failure rates and wireless transmission failures.
Rugged Mobile Barcode Printers are tested for the following and rated on their performance:
- Drop Rating – In rugged device testing the surface is concrete while the height can vary. The higher the survival drop height, the more rugged the device.
- IP Rating – Ingress Protection Rating – a standard used to identify to what degree a device can withstand exposure to solid particles(dust) and liquid ingress. A high rating would be an important consideration for outdoor applications.
- Operating Temperature – Rugged devices are designed to work ove r a wide range of temperatures that often include conditions well below freezing.
