Professional portable thermal printer for healthcare

Distractions, interruptions and increased workloads are among the most common factors linked to identification and medical errors.

By providing accurate information on wristbands and labels at the point of care – quickly and without hassle – the TD-2130NHC can help improve patient safety and ease the workload of your medical staff.

It offers Healthcare organisations the opportunity to cut costs and double the output of leading competitors by being able to print both wristbands and labels from the same machine.

A wide range of accessories including rechargeable batteries, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth interfaces offer the versatility of a transportable machine either on an unpowered trolley or simply docked to a workstation.

Like other models in the range, it features a spindle-less design, allowing you to simply drop in a roll and print on demand - while the TrustSense™ smart media sensor means you can print various wristbands and labels without any special set-up.

Key Features

  • Improves patient safety by printing accurate information at the point of care
  • Automatic detection and configuration of installed roll size and type reduces printing errors
  • Print wristbands and labels from the same machine
  • Complete portability thanks to optional rechargeable batteries and Wi-Fi/Bluetooth interfaces
  • Superior quality and performance using TrustSense™ media from PDC Healthcare



The power of a desktop in a fully portable machine

In the demanding healthcare environment, reducing time spent on administrative duties whilst allowing more time for patient care is paramount.

The TD-2130NHC offers the performance, features and media capacity of a desktop printer, but with the option to go completely portable thanks to its compact footprint, wireless functionality and rechargeable battery pack. These options offer true versatility when used in conjunction with ward trolleys allowing for increased mobility and efficiency.

A simple one-touch adjustment allows for quick and easy media installation, while the sensor automatically calibrates itself to verify media size and set the proper print density – taking the guesswork out of printing, whatever media type you’re working with.

With a wide range of optional accessories available, decision makers can reduce costs by configuring the machine to fit their specific requirement eliminating the risk of unnecessary functionality.

The TD-2130NHC uses TrustSense™ specialist media from PDC that has been developed specifically for the healthcare sector, and are available in a wide range of wristband and label sizes.
