Datamax-O'Neil RL3e Portable Label Printer

The Datamax-O’Neil RL3e portable rugged label printer is designed to last as evidenced by its 2-year warranty. It is the successor to the RL3 and has more memory, includes Bluetooth as a standard option and adds support for 802.11a/b/g/n (the RL series supported 802.11a/b/g). We recognize that the initial cost of a rugged printer may seem high, but studies have shown that the total cost of ownership (TCO) is lower for many professional applications where products may be dropped or bumped frequently. As such, the RL3e mobile printer was built tough; it not only passes MIL-STD 810F drop testing requirements, but continues to print after 26 consecutive drops to concrete from 6 feet.

The RL3e is a durable direct thermal label printer and can handle labels up to 3″ wide. It is capable of printing at 3 ips and features 64MB RAM/128MB Flash. Some of the other key features of the RL3e printer include standard Bluetooth and optional 802.11a/b/g/n communications, standard USB interface and linered (standard) or linerless media options.

Key Features

Ultra Rugged: The RL3e endures even the most punishing environments, and passes the MIL-STD 810F drop testing requirements. The RL3e is so rugged it continues to print after 26 consecutive drops to concrete from 6ft (1.8m) even when tested at extreme temperature conditions. The printer is designed with larger gears and train, magnesium parts and double wall construction that will help it to withstand the multiple drops and tumbles expected in these environments.

High Performance: The long lasting lithium-ion battery offers maximum power capacity to print 5500 3” x 1” labels when operating for 8 continuous hours in a wireless environment. The printer also prints at a continuous 4 inches per second from 100% battery charge to low battery warning. Loading the paper roll is easy to do with one hand and we’ve also included an easy to read LCD screen with simple user interface buttons.

Easy to Integrate: The RL3e comes with popular language emulations such as CPCL, ZPL, EPL, IPL, XML and Easy Print that allow you to easily integrate the RL3e into an existing infrastructure. The standard Bluetooth and 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless options give you the flexibility to print anywhere within your operations. The RL3e can hold a roll of media of up to 2.65” OD while being on the industry standard 0.75” ID core thus making it straightforward to migrate your current solution over to the RL3e.
