NRF News: Epson Introduces Next Generation of Printers
As tablet POS systems continue to gain popularity and become more customer facing, hospitality and retail merchants are looking for systems that are both aesthetically pleasing and reliable enough to withstand low- and high-volume environments. To meet this demand, Epson announced four new m-Series thermal receipt printers – the OmniLink® TM-m30III, TM-m30III-H, TM-50II, and TM-50II-H. Sleek and modern, the new m-Series printers deliver enhanced connectivity and reliable performance in a compact enclosure. The new models will be on display at NRF 2023: Retail’s Big Show – Breakthrough from Jan. 15-17 in booth 4457.
The TM-m30III and TM-m30III-H offer versatile connectivity for low-volume hospitality environments; the TM-m50II and TM-m50II-H offer advanced connectivity, performance and quality for high-volume customers. The new m-Series printers’ clean and attractive design provides visual appeal to enhance both business and customer experiences and its small size is ideal for tight spaces. The enhanced enclosure is IPX2 rated for water resistance and its specially treated antimicrobial enclosure material suppresses the growth of bacteria. Additionally, the printers have a flexible configuration, working in either a top-exit or front-exit orientation.
Designed to pair perfectly with tablet-based POS systems, the OmniLink TM-m30III, TM-m30III-H and TM-m50II-H printers offer tablet charging and fast network communication at up to 20 Mbps through a single USB cable. Equipped with built-in Ethernet, USB-A, USB-B, and USB-C interfaces, along with an optional dual wireless interface that supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, the TM-m30III, TM-m30III-H and TM-m50II-H have the flexibility to connect to almost any POS system. The OmniLink TM-m50II has the versatility to support both traditional PC-POS and mPOS systems with built-in serial, Ethernet and USB interfaces.
Engineered for reliability, the ultra-fast OmniLink TM-m50II and TM-m50II-H printers deliver print speeds of up to 500 mm/sec. The m-Series printers allow merchants to print from Web-based applications using Epson’s ePOS Print technology or utilize Epson Server Direct Print technology for online ordering or remote printing. With innovative paper-saving technology, the new m-Series printers help businesses reduce paper usage by up to 49 percent.
