Brother today announced the PocketJet 7 portable printer, which are available in six different models that are mostly differentiated by connectivity options for different use cases. All print at 8 ppm (pages per minute) at either 300×300 or 203×200 resolution. See specification comparison chart below.
Brother claims PocketJet 7 is the smallest, most advanced full-page mobile thermal printer on the market. The printer’s unique Freedom Architecture ensures across-the-board software compatibility, resulting in instantaneous interoperability with smartphones, tablets and PCs built on iOS, Android, Windows and Windows Mobile operating systems. The new printer series features models which are out-of-the-box ready to print, without the need for additional software development or OS drivers.
Strategic advancements including support for Apple AirPrint wireless technology on the PJ-773 model and the Bluetooth PJ-763MFi model enable users to seamlessly print from iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and are expected to appeal to a broader global customer base across a range of even more industries and applications.
Smart roll case, plus customized kits for specialized applications
Introduced with the new PocketJet series is a specially designed carry and mount case, available separately. Smartly engineered, this rugged roll case provides IP54 rated construction for 4-ft drop protection, with anti-curl mechanism to produce absolutely flat documents with legible, fade-resistant printing from the roll of thermal paper stored within. The compact case and printer can be vehicle mounted, if desired, or can be easily stowed and carried within a briefcase, backpack or work kit.
Because PocketJet 7 will serve a broader range of mobile professionals, Brother has designed a series of workforce kits in which the printer, accessories and media are bundled to fit the most common mobile printer use applications.
The four kits offered will minimize decisions for new mobile professionals and provide enhanced options for field workforces wishing to upgrade their mobile printing.
- Vehicle Kit for vehicle and fleet operators desiring vehicle-mounted and vehicle-powered mobile printers
- Workforce Kit a smart, light and compact kit, designed for day-to-day use by the typical mobile professional or field workforce
- Developer’s Kit for application or software developers requiring more than the basic essentials as they refine their designs
- Basic Kit the essential starter package for the mobile professional who prints from a laptop or PC
Custom kits may also be developed upon special customer request.
