Datamax-O'Neil Compact4 Mobile Forklift Printer

The Datamax-O'Neil Compact4 Mobile Mark II is designed for installation on forklift trucks and mobile stations. It can operate from a connection to a forklift’s battery and its vibration-proof design makes it the perfect choice for warehousing logistics.

Datamax-O'Neil Compact4 Mobile Highlights at a Glance

  • Small but Mighty: The Compact4 printers have an incredibly small footprint which allows them to be used in applications where space is limited. Their compact size takes up less than half the space of a traditional desktop label printer but with the same duty cycle and strength.
  • Rugged: The Compact4 printers are constructed on a solid cast metal frame and protected with metal die cast covers. Unlike other small printers, the Compact4 series are industrial printers that are built to withstand the rigors of a warehouse or high volume printing application.
  • Shock & Vibration ready: Compact4 Mobile offers a special anti-vibration quick-lock mounting plate, a unique design for forklifts and mobile stations. Runs on 24-48 VDC and connects directly to a forklift battery.
  • Media loading: is unlike any other printer in the market. The levers are large and easy to manage -- so easy that the operation can be done single handed while wearing a leather or latex glove. The paper path is slotted through the side of the printer with no covers to open or clamshells to unlock. Loading media doesn’t get any easier.
  • Orientation: The Compact4 Mobile printers can be used in almost any orientation. The design of the printer and special mounting plates allow the printer to be used in its normal upright position, mounted vertically on the wall, or even mounted upside down.
  • Software: Compact4 Mark II printers are now offered in both DPL and Label Point versions. DPL version is also offered with PL-Z, PL-I, and PL-B emulation capabilities. MP Design, label design software comes standard with the printers.

The Compact4 Mobile is ideal to meet the requirements in applications such as cross docking, shipping labels, pallet tracking, and in sorting centers.

Datamax-O'Neil Compact4 Mobile Options

MP Compact4 Mobile printers are offered with a wide variety of options and accessories to meet the needs of many industrial applications. A complete list of options and accessories are available on the partner center. The most commonly used options are listed below:

wlan W-LAN
Optional 802.11 B/G wireless LAN makes it easy to connect to networks and makes mobile printing operations easy. The wireless option has the latest WPA2 security protocol.
emulation Emulations
DPL version of the Compact4 Mark II printers is available with PL-B emulation capabilities, making it easy to replace competitive printers.
tower kit Tower Kit
Unlike any other printer in the industry, the Compact4 printers can be stacked using the tower rack accessory. The rack is designed to maintain the footprint occupied by a single printer while allowing easy loading and printing operations.
wall mount Wall Mounting Kit
The wall mounting kit allows the printer to be wall mounted quickly and easily. It is ideal in applications where counter space is limited and the printer is in close proximity.
label taken sensor Label Taken Sensor Kit
The label taken sensor, also known as LTS, is commonly used with the peeler kit. A photo cell is mounted facing upward at the label exit to detect when the label is taken. The photo cell controls the printing pace so that the next label is printed only after the previous label has been removed.
peeler Peeler Kit
The peeler kit automatically separates the label from the label liner (backing) by pulling the liner over a sharp edge and winding it onto a three pronged spindle. This allows the user to take a printed label directly from the printer and apply it. A peeler kit along with a label taken sensor kit automates applying labels by removing the label liner and pausing printing until the label is taken.
large roll Large Roll Kit
The large roll kit allows the printer to handle a larger roll loaded onto its spindle which increases the roll diameter capacity from 3.9” (100mm) to 5.9” (150mm). The kit requires removing the old spindle and installing a new spindle that displaces the roll further from the printer.
