ME240 Series ME240/ME340

Small Footprint Delivers Your Everyday Label Printing Needs
TSC ME240 series of industrial thermal label printers was designed to offer the right features at the best
value in the industry.  The ME240 features a small footprint and low profile design that fits where larger
industrial printers do not.

Its quiet operation and fast label throughput is equally at home, in the office or shop floor environment. 
The printers all-metal construction and die-cast aluminum print mechanism engine is durable enough to
withstand the toughest production environments.

Die-cast print mechanism for custom applications

The ME240 printer’s unique design features a heavy-duty die-cast aluminum print mechanism, which TSC
will make available as a stand-alone unit to partners who want to design and build their own custom packaging
machine or label applicator. The print mechanism includes a ribbon handler and printhead assembly and is
designed to hold the electronics main board. This compact assembly is ideal for resellers who want to develop
low-cost customized solutions for packaging, product marking and other applications.

While priced for value, the ME240 series offers two models loaded with popular features, and offers a selection
of options and accessories to further enhance its capabilities to meet the demands of a wide range of printing
solutions.  Standard features include USB and Serial connectivity, a 2-button 3-LED (basic model)/ 6-button
LCD  (advanced model) control panel 3-button LED display, Real Time Clock, 8 MB SDRAM memory, 4 MB Flash
memory and an SD Flash memory card reader that allows for Flash memory expansion up to 4 GB.  .

Popular options include a full featured graphical LCD display (for basic model), Ethernet connectivity, USB host, a
peel-off module, stand-alone keyboard, cutter module and a parallel port to work with legacy installations.

The ME240 series features TSPL-EZ firmware that is easy to set up and use. TSPL-EZ offers automatic
TPLZ and TPLE language emulation right out of the box. The printer simply translates each label format
as the printer receives it. The included DiagTool configuration software makes it a snap to replace existing
printers with a modern durable  ME240 series printer.  Other TSPL-EZ features include a file manager and
programming language that support stand -alone and down-time programming solutions allowing you to
print labels without connection to a host computer, or  optionally be able to continue printing labels during
times of network failure.
