The Sony UP-D898DC (UPD898DC) is a compact A6 medical-grade black-and-white digital printer, operating on a 12-24V DC power source from other medical systems. It's designed to be integrated into a wide range of compatible medical imaging environments such as digital ultrasound systems, mobile C-arms, or cardiac catheterization laboratories. The high-quality thermal print engine can produce hard copy prints of still images captured by these systems for use in patient records and referrals. (Please note that images printed from the UP-D898DC are not to be used for diagnosis). The UP-D898DC is the DC supply version of the UP-898 printer series. It features the same front panel design (as the UP-D898MD) and offers several operational and ergonomic enhancements, with an even more space-saving footprint. The printer is capable of delivering high-quality black-and-white prints in under 2 seconds. Advanced thermal printing technology delivers near-photo quality results using widely available Sony print media.
