Drum roll please!!!
Why have Zebra released this new printer?
As of December 2009, Zebra will be discontinuing their LP & TLP series of printers and replacing them with the new Zebra G-Series models. The Zebra G-Series printers are only available with a four inch version and as there is currently no two inch G-Series they have made a few adjustments to the existing 2824 2 inch printers.
So what’s different between the existing 2824 models and this new one?
In all honesty, not that much has changed but the changes they have made will make a difference.
Programming Language: The current standard version is available with EPL (Eltron Programming Language) or the Z version is available with ZPL (Zebra Programming Language) the new Plus version is now available with both options as standard.
Processor: The standard version has a 16 bit processor where as the new plus model will come with a 32 bit processor as standard.
Memory: The current standard version has 512kb Flash and 128kb SRAM while the new plus version has 4MB Flash with 8MB SDRAM as standard.
