The MH240 Series is a brand-new platform for TSC midrange industrial printing featuring three different levels of models covering 203, 300 and 600 dpi resolutions.

All models feature color LCD displays, a high technology printhead, a lightning fast processor, and all the memory customers will need to print high quality labels at speeds up to 14 inches per second.

Within the MH240 Series are 9 models designed to fit your enhanced print quality and high speedprinting needs. Main difference of MH240 Series are listed as below table.


The “T” (MHx40T) and “P” (MHx40P) printers supporting the 4.3″ color LCD touch panel feature our new GUI design that was introduced with the MX240P.

The MH240 is loaded with sensors that tell you the state of its ribbon usage, head up or down condition and a multitude of error conditions. The exclusive SSC (Setting Security Control) offers complete setting control, to prevent accidental and undesired changes.

The new GUI is designed to deliver a large amount of data to the user in a quick and efficient manner.

14 INCHES PER SECOND IS FASTEST MIDRANGE PRINTER ON THE MARKET. The new MH240 thermal transfer printer now boasts speeds of up to 14 inches per second to deliver labels at the fastest speed.

YOUR INVESTMENT IS PROTECTED WITH AUTOMATIC RECOGNITION FIRMWARE. Swap out the printhead for a different resolution and the printer’s firmware will recognize and automatically adjust to print at 203, 300 or 600 dpi resolutions.

GREAT CALIBRATION, REGISTRATION AND HIGH RESOLUTION PRINT RESOLUTIONS. The MH240 print mechanism is designed for easy label handling with a convenient side-load design, and multiple ribbon handling features to eliminate issues when changing between narrow and wider ribbons.

Top-of-the-line speed, loads of standard features: Includes the ability to use 600-meter ribbons and 8-inch outside-diameter media rolls for high-volume printing, built-in Ethernet, two USB hosts, and USB 2.0 and serial interfaces.

Options you need: a version of the printer with cutters, Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n, internal Bluetooth, and GPIO+Parallel ports for integrating with other equipment.

Industry Best Warranty: All the models are backed by a two-year limited warranty, one of the best in the industry.

Powerful Printer Programming Language: The MH240 Series is bundled with TSPL-EZ firmware, which incorporates three different printer languages:

  • TSC printer language
  • TPLE (Translation Printer Language Eltron)  
  • TPLZ (Translation Printer Language Zebra)

Versatile and easy to use, the firmware supports internal scalable True Type fonts and features a BASIC interpreter with a file manager for creating powerful printer-interface applications for multiple host types.
