The smallest, most advanced A4 portable thermal printer on the market offering the ability to print full page documents anywhere from virtually any mobile device

 

 

Sydney, Australia, 1 December 2015 – Brother International Australia today announced the launch of its PocketJet® 7 series, an A4 portable thermal printing solution engineered to offer new levels of freedom to mobile workers spanning any industry including healthcare, transportation, public safety, pest management and professional field service organisations.

The printer’s unique operating system ensures across-the-board software compatibility, resulting in instantaneous interoperability with smartphones, tablets and PCs built on iOS, Android™, Windows® , Linux and Windows Mobile operating systems and is out-of-the-box ready to print, without the need for additional software development or OS drivers.

Strategic advancements including support for Apple AirPrint™ wireless technology on the PJ-773 model and the Bluetooth PJ-763MFi model enable users to seamlessly print from iPhone®, iPad® and iPod® touch and are expected to appeal to a broader global customer base across a range of even more industries and applications.

“This product series represents a huge step forward in productivity-enhancing portable technologies and is yet another ‘first-to-market’ innovation for Brother”, Luke Howard, Commercial Market Development Manager, Brother International Australia explained. “Mobile workers and mobile enterprises, regardless of size and industry, are sure to appreciate the PocketJet® 7’s new features, versatility, and unprecedented simplicity of use”.

David Molloy, Commercial Sales Technical Specialist & Mobile Print Specialist, Brother International Australia, adds: “By combining smart design with in-depth knowledge of today’s evolving mobile workforce, we have eliminated the last existing obstacles of mobile platform compatibility and connectivity. Now, with AirPrint™, Bluetooth, Mopria™ and Windows® 10 compatibility in various models*, mobile professionals can print from any iPhone®, iPad® and iPod® touch, smartphone, tablet or PC, and in just about any physical configuration that a customer’s work environment requires – mounted in a vehicle, transportable to a jobsite, carried in a case, or simply stowed in a backpack. Plus, there are no ink cartridges, ribbons or toners to deal with due to the range’s advanced thermal technology resulting in a more reliable portable solution for any environment. In short, with the PocketJet® 7, users are now free to print anywhere and anytime.”

Available in a variety of models and configurations, the new PocketJet® series maintains its place as the smallest, most compact, technologically advanced A4 portable thermal printer on the market today. Major new advances in printing performance include printing speeds of up to 8 pages per minute, extended battery life via the included Li-Ion rechargeable battery, and broader wireless communication capabilities. For easy start up, the series is available in a bundle pack which includes an AC Adaptor, Li-Ion Rechargeable Battery, and Thermal A4 paper sheets (100 sheets) - for more information about Brother’s thermal paper, read the whitepaper here.


Smart roll case for ruggedised applications

Introduced with the new PocketJet® 7 series is a specially designed carry and mount case, available separately. Smartly engineered, this rugged roll case provides IP54 rated construction for 1.2m drop protection, with anti-curl mechanism to produce absolutely flat documents with legible, fade-resistant printing from the roll of thermal paper stored within. The compact case and printer can be vehicle mounted, if desired, or can be easily stowed and carried within a briefcase, backpack or work kit.
