Compact and stylish, the cool black EP range of 2 and 4 inch portable thermal printers is the ultimate in wireless functionality and reliability on the move.

  • Ultra-compact and contemporary rugged design
  • Operator keypad with a backlit LCD information display
  • Superior print speed, with ‘peel and present’ labelling
  • Largest media capacity with quick and simple media loading
  • Flexible connectivity including USB, Bluetooth and wireless LAN
  • Swaps easily into existing systems.

Rugged endurance on the move

We have put our big printer technology into the smallest possible package.

Perfect for labelling on the shop floor, printing prescriptions on hospital wards, issuing tickets in the street or barcoding in the warehouse.

Durable and robust

In the real world, accidents can happen, so we developed rugged rubber corners, easily passing a 1.8 m drop test on to concrete (1.5 m for B-EP4).

We didn’t stop there with the rubber, we used it on the external ports to protect them from any spills. Even strict IP54 enclosure standards against dust and water ingress are surpassed with the optional carry case.

So simple to use

For user friendliness and very fast operator training times, there’s nothing like the clear backlit LCD read-out on the larger Toshiba thermal printers.

So we put it into the mobile range as well, displaying a label counter, battery level, wireless signal strength and error messages. There’s audible alerts too, just in case.

Less media changes

Papers or labels dropped in with one hand? No problem.

The large capacity we’ve designed means changing media much less often. Plus there’s no cores required on the rolls, so minimal waste.

And there’s a linerless kit to issue labels without backing paper, for waste-free labelling.*

Power options

The high endurance lithium ion battery ensures many hours of operation. Swap it out for external recharging or simply charge in situ using an optional adaptor.

For applications on the road there is a cigarette lighter charging adapter (12 V input) for the B-EP2 and in the warehouse, there’s a DC adapter (48 V input) to charge either model in a forklift.

Easy networking

The EP range is WiFi certified, making networking to all wireless or cabled systems a breeze.

USB 2.0 and IrDA (infrared) are standard across the EP models. Simply choose between Bluetooth, wireless LAN and serial.

The serial model can be upgraded to wireless and Bluetooth.

Swift integration

The EP series speaks many programming languages and is designed to simply plug and play without any software changes, whether it’s a Toshiba printer using TPCL or any make using BCI (Basic Command Interpreter).

Both models will handle inputs from other peripherals such as scales and scanners. Uniquely, they support ESC/POS language.

DB-EA4D wins covered international “iF product design award”

The compact, rugged and robust DB-EA4D double-sided label printer has been designed to offer a low-cost and green solution for applications requiring dual output. With user-friendly operation and high-speed printing, this innovative technology provides a reliable and efficient alternative to traditional single-sided solutions. The iF product design award offers an important platform to have one’s product’s design quality professionally validated by an international jury of experts.


Today’s labelling solutions create waste by the need to throw away the backing paper. In line with its ever more green endeavours Toshiba has addressed this issue by developing the DB-EA4D 2-sided direct thermal printer which adds value and usability to a label’s backing paper, or the back of a ticket, by printing directly onto it.


The solid design and small footprint ensures the printer has the flexibility to operate in any environment or application, from diverse transport and logistics industries requirements to confined retail and logistical operations.
The label and backing paper are printed simultaneously, facilitating fast output of labels and receipts with speeds up to 6ips.


Using parcel deliveries as an example, the address label for a delivery can be printed at the same time as the delivery’s packing list is printed on the label’s backing paper. Dual-sided printing offers various savings aside from the lower media costs, e.g. reducing storage space and shipping costs as fewer label or receipts are required.


The intuitive LCD backlit menu allows simple user operation, supported by colour LED notification lights (using colours distinguishable by the visually impaired). Auto-feed functionality enables trouble-free quick paper-loading, and easy maintenance is facilitated with tool-less replacement of key components like the printhead and platen roller.


The DB-EA4D is available with paper roll holder options, further enhancing the flexibility and range of applications for printing. With Bartender as standard and the option to download enhanced software, the user can easily design the label to meet the requirements of the business.
