Use the Monarchä 9878ä Compact Mobile Work Station (MWSä) for mobile printing either in-storeor in retail centers.

The in-storemodels have only one battery (12VDC) allowing you to scan and mark items directly on the sales floor. Thetwo-battery(24VDC) models provide more power for larger printers. The Compact MWS models are light, easy to roll and turn.

You see references to voltages throughout this manual with either (one battery) or (two batteries) after them, so you know which voltage applies to your MWS.
