TTP-243 Pro

Redefining ‘Performance’ In An Entry-level Desktop Printer

TSC’s original entry-level TTP-243 series desktop printer redefined “performance”, earning a reputation as the toughest, most durable printer in its class. Its new replacement – the TTP-243 Pro Series – incorporates the same features, plus brand-new state-of-the-art electronics, packing even more performance into an entry-level platform.


One of the key features of the TTP-243 Pro is its innovative dual-motor print engine, which incorporates a 32 bit high performance processor that can handle high volumes of data without sacrificing throughput. The TTP-243 Pro prints 203 dpi images at speeds up to 3 inches per second. The TTP-243 Pro holds up to 8.4 inch OD label rolls and has a ribbon capacity of 300 meters. It also features two standard interfaces – RS-232 serial and USB 2.0. A factory option is available for a main board contains both RS-232 serial and parallel ports.

The TTP-243 Pro comes with 4 MB of Flash memory and 8 MB of SDRAM and offers an optional SD card reader for expanding memory up to 4 GB.

It also features TSC’s powerful TSPL Printer Language, as well as the Translation Printer Language Eltron® (TPLE). Labeling software and a Windows® driver are included at no extra charge.

Like its predecessor, the TTP-243 Pro offers a variety of options, including a rotary cutter, keyboard display units, a long range linear imaging barcode scanner, an SD card reader slot, a Bluetooth module, a 3-inch-core label spindle and an external label hanger (for the TTP-243E Pro model).
