Available 4” direct thermal and thermal transfer, the PC series is perfect for space-constrained settings. Its low cost and fast operation make the PC series the smart choice for light duty labeling applications where users need reliable, easy to use printers. Super Easy to install and use Ideal for customers who are new to label printing or who are making the switch from laser or inkjet printers, the easyto-use PC43 desktop printers feature a double-wall clamshell construction for long term durability. The PC series was designed by users for quick set-up and trouble-free use. With the most placement options including wall mount and battery power, the printer adapts to its environment and fits right in. No longer are users required to decode a blinking LED to determine printer status. The PC series comes with either a universal Icon interface for immediate notifications reducing training and support needs. The PC43t thermal transfer printer takes both a half-inch or one-inch ribbon core in every printer. The one-inch core accommodates the largest ribbon roll (up to 11,811 inches / 300m) in a desktop printer reducing the need for frequent replacements helping to maximize uptime. Off-the-shelf compatibility and certifications with a wide range of business and healthcare software applications enables users to be up and running quickly, requiring minimal IT support. With a fast throughput at 8 ips, you can count on the PC series to deliver a productivity advantage for your labeling needs. From a migration standpoint, the compact size, common media specifications, and multi-printer language platform of the PC series results in an easy path from legacy Intermec printers such as the PC4, PC41 and PF8, as well as from other desktop printers. Fits your business needs today and tomorrow No other desktop barcode printer offers more user-installable options ensuring your printer will grow as your business grows. Modular connectivity ensures the PC series will fit into your existing network environment. USB comes standard along with optional, user installable serial, parallel, secure Ethernet and dual wireless card with Bluetooth® and CCX-compliant 802.11 b/g/n. Leveraging the Intermec platform provides a solution that can adapt and grow as needs change – even upgrade seamlessly to Intermec industrial printers. This integrated approach provides significant efficiencies in development, deployment and support. The PC desktop printer series can host stand-alone applications developed with Intermec Fingerprint or C# for Printers to address custom requirements today or in the future, without the need to upgrade hardware. The ability to use any Intermec printer language and emulate other nonIntermec printer protocols makes the PC series a cost-effective “drop-in” printer replacement in almost any environment. There’s no need to replace the printer if you upgrade your software environment – the printer will easily adapt. The PC series keeps your options open protecting your investment for the long term. Keeps you informed and productive The PC series offers many Smart features normally found only in industrial grade printers. By adding Intermec’s SmartSystems® and XMLLabel™, the PC series will be fully provisioned for remote management and XML printing environments. Furthermore Intermec SmartSystems provides remote monitoring and diagnostics to networked devices for quick maintenance, and upgrades. Support for Monotype fonts come standard helping to speed up configuration – all at an affordable and competitive price.
