Product Description

Refurbished Datamax E-Class™ Mark II E-4205e 203 DPI Direct / Thermal Transfer Printer

The E-Class Mark II E-4205e printer is more than a shipping or address label printer; it is exclusively designed to dependably print on the tough, durable materials needed in many applications. Whether the E-4205e is printing crystal clear and durable jewelry tags or high resolution tough product serial labels, it gives what is usually expected from much more expensive printers. The printer is dependable and cost-effective that many large and small businesses around the world rely on it for all their barcode label and tagging needs.

    Features & Benefits:

    • Label peeler separates the label from the liner, which makes it perfect for use in semi-automated operations like manufacturing product identification, shipment labeling, and inventory identification; use with a present sensor to automate dispensing
    • Field installable options like cutters, present sensors, and thermal transfer can be added effortlessly to upgrade a base printer
    • Adjustable media sensor option widens the printing capabilities with movable index sensors to print on the oddest shaped labels or tags with non-standard shapes and oddly placed index marks or backside printing
    • Printhead adjustment dial controls the amount of pressure the printhead applies to the printable media to ensure the highest possible print quality on narrow to wide media
    • Communications galore. The E-Class Mark II is the leader in the desktop printer market with the most communications ports in one product: serial, parallel, and USB come standard
    • One-of-a-kind print mechanism designed to print on thick materials and correct material curvature due to being wound on a roll
    • Two colors to chose from - cool grey or warm white
    • Small footprint to fit on any desktop or counter and open more work space


    • Manufacturing: work-in-process, product ID/serial numbers, packaging labels, receiving/ put-away labeling
    • Transportation & Logistics: order picking/packing, shipping/receiving, cross-docking, compliance labeling
    • Healthcare: orders, specimen labels, asset-tracking, unit-of-use labeling
    • Retail: shelf-labeling, shipping, returns, item tags

Support Package

Infocus Support Packages for Plastic Card Printers:


In addition to support supplied by the manufacturer, our Infocus technical team provide a full “hand-holding” service which includes the remote setup of printers and software on up to two computers. We will also assist with remote software training to get you or your staff completely up and running. Moving forward, Infocus will assist with any technical problems for as long as you have the printer and you continue to buy consumables from us (we price match our competitors). Response time from opening a support ticket is usually within 4 hours and no more than 1 working day.  We aim to resolve issues which can be fixed by remote connection within 24 hours (1 working day – weekends and public holidays are excluded).

Under a standard RTB (return to base) warranty: Should your machine become faulty after the first 30 days then you will need to cover the cost of getting the printer back to us for repair.

Full support is provided for software supplied by us. If a problem is found with 3rd party software not supplied by Infocus ID, we may have to refer you to that product’s support team.

Cost: FREE with all printers purchased from Infocus ID. Otherwise the price is £99 + VAT per year.


Available in the UK only:

In addition to the Bronze package, response time from opening a ticket will be much faster and wherever possible we will endeavour to handle any issues instantly. We will aim to resolve your issue completely within 4 working hours and if we cannot do this we will book your printer in for repair and issue a loan unit within 1 working day.

You will receive a loan unit at no extra cost should your machine need to come in for repair. All courier costs will be covered by Infocus for repairs and loan units. A deposit will be required by credit card to receive a loan unit. The deposit will be fully refunded the same day we receive the loan printer back.

*Physical damage to printheads, data and power ports is not included. For continued printhead cover a cleaning cycle will need to be performed on the printer at least every 1000 cards printed. This information is stored digitally in each printer and cannot be disputed. Should a data port be physically damaged (such as a USB port) on the printer’s PCB (usually the mainboard), we will attempt to repair the PCB free of charge. In some occasions though, the PCB may be damaged past repair, in which case we reserve the right to charge for a new PCB.
