RJ-2 Series Line-up

Ultra-compact, super-rugged and completely wireless, the RJ-2 series delivers the greatest performance and versatility in the Brother mobile printer line-up

Sydney, Australia – 1st June 2017 – Brother International (Aust) Pty Ltd, provider of mobile printing solutions, announces the launch of the Brother RJ-2 Series, a range of two-inch mobile label and receipt printers. The company’s first 2-inch format printers are the fastest, most compact, lightweight, and notably versatile printers in their class, incorporating the rugged durability and rock-solid reliability which have made the existing RJ lineup popular.

Designed to wirelessly print both labels and receipts, the RJ-2 series was engineered to meet the varied and rigorous demands of today’s mobile environments. Available in four models, the printers support Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi® technology, in addition to iOS®, Android™, Windows® mobile and Windows® operating systems capability. Of special significance is the IP54 certification and 8.2 ft. drop protection, and advancements in speed and power further differentiate the new series.

The RJ-2050 and RJ-2150 models are the first in the 2-inch category market to feature both Apple MFi™ certification and Apple AirPrint® compatibility – allowing easy wireless printing from iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch®.

Smaller size, rugged construction and broad flexibility, make the series well suited for applications in industries such as retail, public safety, parking, pharmacy, lab, hospital, field services, manufacturing, warehouse, route accounting, and more. An experienced Brother Corporate Division is available in Australia to deliver the right solution for nearly any field application, including development support to utilise the Software Development Kit (SDK) available for iOS, Android and Windows Mobile.

Stefanie Dixon, Marketing Specialist at Brother International (Aust) Pty Ltd, notes, “A 2016 industry survey* of 500 retailers revealed that about a third are planning to invest in mobile printers for in-store, warehouse and supply chain operations this year. Among the top must-have features cited in our follow up survey were speed, size, reliability and connectivity. RJ-2 mobile printers raise the bar by fulfilling these and many other mobile marketplace needs.”

She continues: “Clearly, any business that is equipping a mobile workforce wants the printers they purchase to be compact, durable, easy to use, and truly mobile. They also want power options, connectivity options, and smooth interoperability across diverse operating systems ‒ all at a competitive price. We believe the new RJ-2 series more than exceeds those expectations.”
