Canon Unveils a New Portable Printer for Users Always On-The-Go
The PIXMA TR150 is a high performance wireless portable printer that provides effortless printing and scanning options for the utmost convenience.
SINGAPORE, 24 April 2020 – Canon today announced the PIXMA TR150 portable wireless printer designed for business professionals who are always on the move. With direct printing from smartphones, a USB-charging battery pack, and the ability to store user-designed form templates in device memory, the PIXMA TR150 promises true PC-free operation combined with robust performance for all high-quality documents needs.
“With office work patterns shifting towards remote working outside of the office, people have more flexibility and need the same from their office tools,” said Edwin Teoh, Head of Marketing, Singapore Operations, Canon Singapore. “The PIXMA TR150 is a portable workhorse that caters to this
developing trend and comes with an intuitive 1.44″ OLED display which delivers clear guided instructions for wireless connection and operation for working professionals on the move.”
Ultra-Portable with Impressive Set of Features
The compact size and slim profile of the PIXMA TR150 allows it to slot easily into a carry-on bag or briefcase. A high-contrast 1.44” OLED display adorns the top panel, and makes it easy to change print settings without a connected laptop, while displaying information such as remaining battery
levels, ink levels, as well as on-location Wi-Fi signal strength.
A common Kensington security slot (K slot) is located at the side of the printer body, for an extra anti-theft deterrent when working with the device outside of the office, or in hot-desking work environments. The printer achieves plain text document printouts at up to 9 images per minute (ipm) and up to 5.5 ipm for colour documents. An added bonus is the ability to print A4 images on glossy papers up to A4 borderless sizes – especially useful for creating glossy cover sheets for important client proposals.
Customised Print Template
The ability to store up to 5 customised print templates in device memory truly sets this printer apart from all others. It enables business professionals to work more productively by storing frequently-used form templates for instant reprints, without the need to ever reach for a laptop or mobile phone.
Ink Systems Designed to Suit Different Printing Needs
The printer is powered by two ink cartridges: a pigment-based black ink cartridge, and a colour ink cartridge. This Canon Hybrid Ink system achieves flexibility in printing text and line documents with great precision and contrast, while retaining the option to deliver photo-realistic images on plain paper or glossy papers – perfect for producing a sleek glossy cover page to finish off an urgent client presentation.
Print from Anywhere
The battery pack can be charged using an AC adapter or a USB-C cable, both included in the package. Even when the battery is depleted, a mere 10 minutes of emergency charging by AC power will restore 36 pages of printing performance into the device, never compromising on productivity even after prolonged periods of non-usage. The PIXMA TR150 also supports dual-band Wi-Fi on the 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz bands, and also Wireless Direct technology that allows printing from smartphones directly without the need for a router or connection to infrastructural network.
Different Ways to Connect Wirelessly
The Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY app for iOS and Android allows you to print, copy and scan effortlessly using your smartphone or tablet, directly access cloud services and even remotely check printer status, remaining ink levels, or access online user guides. The PIXMA TR150 also supports Apple AirPrint, Mopria and Canon Print Service (Android plugin) for direct printing.
