Axiohm Asteron Panel Printer
The ASTERON panel mount printer with integrated paper bucket combines all the outstanding features Axiohm is known for: fast printing (60 mm/s), robustness, large paper roll capacity & Clamshell design.
It is easy to integrate thanks to multiple mounting points and an innovative attachment system that enables you to simply clip the printer to any panel regardless of its thickness. Offering even greater safety and security, ASTERON features an ergonomic door-opening system with an advanced locking mechanism to prevent the door from opening unexpectedly. Its innovative design also ensures improved protection against spills and dust that might interfere with the printing process.
Enhanced features include a 32 kB microprocessor allowing for upside down printing and a much wider array of resident font pages to be uploaded to the printer. ASTERON is available with or without an integrated controller board offering dual RS232 & TTL or USB interface.
The ASTERON panel mount printer is fully compatible with MaxStick, a new repositionable, liner-free, thermal label by Max International.
