Casio IT 3000 Series Handheld Printer

The IT-3000 features a built-in high speed thermal printer capable of printing up to 28 lines per second. It runs on the Microsoft® Windows®CE .NET operating system for easy development and integration into the enterprise. Its sturdy construction enables it to withstand a drop from a height of 1.2 meters and the IP54 level sealing allows it to be used in dusty and wet environments. With Bluetooth™ and IrDA both integrated as standard, and a PC card slot for optional use of Wireless LAN and WAN cards, a wide selection of wireless communication options is possible. Models with Magnetic Card Reader and C-MOS Imager are also available. Key Features Include:

  • High speed thermal printer, capable of up to 28 lines per second, comes as standard
  • C-MOS Imager for scanning 2D/1D symbologies and image capture (M55E/M55U models only)
  • Magnetic Card Reader compatible with ISO7811 for reading data on Tracks 1 and 2 (M54E/M55E/M55U models only)
  • Rugged and durable. Drop tested from 1.2 m to concrete, sealed against dust and water to level IP54 and capable of operating in temperatures from -20 °C to 50 °C
  • Easy operation with a large, backlit keyboard
  • Various industrial standard interfaces for system expansion
  • 3.5-inch (240 x 320 dots) 2-way TFT color LCD for indoor and outdoor use

With the high speed printer integrated as standard on all models, the Magnetic Card Reader (M54E/M55E/M55U models) and the C-MOS Imager (M55E/M55U models), it is finally possible to eliminate the need to carry separate devices such as portable printers, magnetic card readers and scanners. This not only lowers the cost of the overall solution, but also increases productivity and reliability. The IT-3000 series is ideal for issuing tickets, mobile sales, queue busting and in any situation where a receipt or label may be required.

In addition to genuine ease of use and mobility, the IT-3000 series has been designed to be an all-round solution for vertical applications in all weather conditions, day or night. Meter reading, parking meter control, traffic violation control and most field service or maintenance operations will particularly benefit from the use of such a versatile device since it can significantly reduce human error and improve efficiency in these vertical applications.

An SD memory card slot, PC card slot (TYPE I/II) and integrated Bluetooth™ come as standard. Data stored within the terminal can be backed up to an SD memory card if required. Wireless LAN communication is possible using a thirdparty Wireless LAN* card installed in the PC card slot. The integrated Bluetooth™ module enables wireless communications with a wide range of third-party peripherals such as cellular phone and Bluetooth™ Access-Point. In addition to these industry standard interfaces, an 8-pin serial port (not available on M55E/M55U models) and 14-pin serial interface are also available for connection with external devices.

The built-in thermal printer uses a simple one-step paper-loading method. All that is required is for a user to place a paper roll inside the paper roll holder, pull out a 2 or 3 cm length and then close the cover. This simple method saves time and ensures that the paper is always loaded correctly even when performed in the field. An elastic rubber hand strap is included with the terminal. This hand strap is secured on the back of the terminal and enables users to hold it comfortably, eliminating the need to grip too firmly. This guards against both the likelihood of users dropping the IT-3000 and excessive fatigue during prolonged use.

The IT-3000 uses Windows®CE .NET 4.1 as its operating system allowing you to connect information, people, systems and devices together. Windows®CE .NET offers extensive support for wireless communications via Bluetooth™, Wireless LAN and WAN. The .NET Compact Framework is fully supported and applications can be developed using eVC++ 4.0 and Visual Studio .NET 2003 with either VB .NET or C#.

The IT-3000 has been designed and built for rugged reliability. The terminal, including the printer and paper roll holder (with the splash protector), complies with the IP54 rating (the International Standard IEC529) for dust and water-splash protection. It can withstand a drop from a height of 1.2 meters to concrete and can operate in temperatures between –20°C and +50°C. The IT-3000’s rugged construction enables it to survive rough handling and give trouble free use over prolonged periods in very tough environments.

The IT-3000 features the 2-way TFT color LCD (240 x 320 dots) screen with improved visibility during outdoor use. Unlike conventional transparent LCDs, the IT-3000’s screen uses CASIO’s proprietary optical film to effectively reflect incoming light that is normally dispersed. The screen display has vivid clarity in both indoor and outdoor environments. The IT-3000 also features a large backlit keyboard. This is automatically controlled by a brightness sensor for optimum visibility irrespective of the lighting conditions.
