The compact Argox CP-2140 Thermal Printer not only saves space, it also lets you install a large 300m long ribbon for larger printing runs. Ribbon and media are easy to load, and you can select ink-side in or ink-side out ribbon. A media sensor system delivers greater flexibility for diverse media and applications. A head-open switch initiates auto-calibration for more precise printing. Multiple communication interfaces include parallel(CP-2140), RS-232, USB, and optional Ethernet(CP-2140E).


The CP-2140 prints at 203dpi resolution and a speed of 4ips. Standard memory includes 4MB Flash and 8MB SDRAM. The printer has a modular design for easy maintenance, and printing noise is minimal. It supports the Windows 7 OS, 1D/GS1 Data bar, 2D/Composite codes, QR barcodes, and Windows TrueType fonts. You can use the CP-2140 as a standalone printer by adding the Argokee keyboard, and a scanner.
