The MARTEL MCP 9810 printer is a nice unit for data logging and general use with the S4 timer.
It has an internal battery with charger. It uses the same 57mm (2.25") paper used by the TIMY, etc.
It can connect right to a USB-Serial adapter for use with all popular software that provides timing data logging.
It can print in either 24 (same as P5) or 48 characters per line. It has double hieght and double width capability.
We have not had a chance to see if it will work directly with the TAG PTB 605/606 but it has selectable switches that look like it will work.
It is the same body used by the TAG HL200 but in beige.
