Toshiba B-EX4-T2



With a print speed of up to 12-inches per second the B-EX4 flat head is one the quickest flat head printers on the market. The 600 DPI model is no slouch either being able to print up to 6-inches per second.

Improved Design for Easier Maintenance

The B-EX4 improves upon the SX range by letting users ‘snap-in’ print head and platen rollers without the need for a service engineer. The hinged print head block provides easy access to the feed path for cleaning, maintenance or just to remove a jammed label. Automatic print head detection means the B-EX4 will always use the right settings for the print head installed without the need to re-configure. Print head resolutions available include 200, 300 and 600 DPI.

Use Z-mode to print Zebra data streams
Advanced emulation technology enables the B-EX4 printer to work with ZPL II ® data streams with no software changes required. Simply plug-in the B-EX4 and activate Z-mode and the printer will print your labels seamlessly.

Enhanced Connections
The B-EX4 is fitted with USB 2.0 and Ethernet LAN as standard to provide fast connections to your PC or network. Optional ports include Serial and Parallel and Wi-Fi for wireless connection to your network.

Improved Usability
The new menu and LCD display is bigger and brighter than previous generations of printer and greatly improves the ease at which users can operate the printer to adjust settings and troubleshoot common issues. New features include simple LAN set-up and IP address display and a new graphical sensor threshold setting for label sensors.
