The CX200 reflects the innovative design and reliability that has become synonymous with the SATO name. Like other SATO printers, the CX200 also uses the SATO Command Language. This means you can simply add any printer into existing applications, combining the level and capability of the various SATO printer models to meet your changing needs.

The portability and compact design of the CX200 allow it to fit-in anywhere - on a crowded work surface or at a busy warehouse, distribution center, or at points of transactionÖeven on your desk next to your computer.

Designed for ease of use, the CX200 can print over 2200 1" labels from a 5" roll of label media. And in the thermal transfer model, a 5500" ribbon roll allows a convenient 2 to 1 ratio between the media and ribbon, simplifying your media supply management. Also, the high lift print head carriage allows for easy loading and maintenance. These and other advanced features make the CX200 printer the best in the desktop labeling category and lead the way in convenience and easy printing!

Backed by SATO's world class reputation for reliability, the CX200 is the ideal printer for the cost-conscious low-volume user.
