A-Class MArk II

Print Engines for OEM Applications

When the demands of your high-performance print-and-apply applications require more features than existing print engines offer, it’s time to move up to the A-Class™ Mark II.

The A-Class Mark II family of advanced print engines is designed for high-demand multi-shift applications requiring fast throughput and proven reliability. The new design allows for quick and easy replacement of the platen roller and printhead, which minimizes downtime and improves efficiency. It also includes innovative design features, such as stainless-steel cabinet, making it rugged in harsh environments and easy to clean, stainless-steel hardware components, a modular design for enhanced serviceability, coated-side-in or coated-side-out thermal-transfer ribbon assembly, an intuitive, full graphic menu navigation display with an optional 6″ remote display for access when print engines are in hard to reach areas.

Designed for print-and-apply applicator integration, the A-Class Mark II utilizes the industry-recognized Datamax-O’Neil by Honeywell firmware architecture with maximum connectivity options for industry-standard communications interfaces. The A-Class supports industry-recommended OEM 5 bolt mounting connection for seamless integration into your system. PL-Z (Zebra) printer language emulation allows you to seamlessly integrate the A-Class into existing solutions without changing label formats. The A-Class is also outfitted with the proactive IntelliSEAQ printhead diagnostic tool. The A-Class Mark II is available in either 101.6 mm (4 in) or 152.4 mm (6 in) widths and is one of the only print engines to offer 203-, 300-, 400- and 600-dpi resolution in either right-hand or left-hand orientation.


A stainless-steel cabinet protects your printer for years of service in rugged and extreme environments.

Expanded connectivity includes four types of communication ports as standard features – 10/100 LAN, USB, Serial and Parallel.

Seamlessly integrates into most existing solutions using PL-Z and PL-I language emulation without changing code.

A large graphic display enables easy navigation, advanced setups and simple operator use.

Fully integrated UHF RFID solutions available.
