Learn more about TRXio hardware
At minimum, the following is needed to use TRXio:
A computer with at least 8 GB of RAM and Google Chrome installed.
Label printer capable of printing labels on rolls
Blank label stock and/or pre-printed LiveQR labels
1D or 2D barcode Scanner
For the computer, a PC or non-Apple laptop is recommended if the computer is going to be connected to the label printer. Apple devices are not supported by Mortrack application along with most commercial/industrial label-on-roll printers. It is possible but requires considerable IT involvement to utilize the printer drivers necessary for interacting with label-on-roll label printers.
TRXio is built with Google Chrome in mind. While you can access the web app via other web browsers, they are not fully supported and you will have reduced functionality. For the best and fullest TRXio experience, please use Google Chrome.
When looking for a label printer, we have found that the most cost-effective label printer is a direct thermal or thermal transfer type that can print at least 4-inch-wide label stock and at least 203 dpi. Many popular desktop models can manage around 700 labels per roll, while industrial models can fit about 3,000.
The physical size of the device is also something to take into consideration. Larger printers tend to be more expensive initially, but they can also handle larger rolls of labels, making them a worthwhile investment over time. Larger printers also tend to have metal cases and are more durable.
The GoDex DT4x is our recommended device and best seller. It is a simpler, direct thermal desktop printer that can print at 203 dpi at a rate of about 5 linear inches per second. It is $495.00 plus shipping and handling. Label stock is sold separately.
Other label printer brands include Intermec, Zebra and Dymo. Do note that Dymo printers require specialized label stock and the stock is not transferable to other printer brands.
