Designed to set a new standard in user
friendliness and flexibility, the compact
Intermec PC43 provides an intuitive label
printing solution. 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.
Physical Description
The compact PC series includes both Direct Thermal
(PC23d & PC43d) or Thermal Transfer (PC43t) printers
