Members of the smartest bar code printer
family on the market, the PX4i and PX6i
are flexible and programmable, enabling
customers to optimize their printing
operations, streamline deployment, and
achieve quick return on investment. Built
to meet the needs of round-the-clock,
mission-critical applications, the rugged
PX printers deliver advanced connectivity
and network protocols, ensuring peace-ofmind today and a reliable, scalable solution
for the long haul. The PX4i and PX6i High
Performance Printers are part of Intermec’s
complete line of smart, strong and secure
industrial printers.
The PX printers’ smart design features
support increased productivity in
demanding environments. As Smart
Printers, they can host stand-alone
applications, developed through Intermec
Fingerprint programming language, that
reduce errors and streamline operational
processes. Smart Printers can eliminate the
PC and control other devices directly (such
as scanners, scales, applicators), improving
efficiency and decreasing infrastructure
costs and complexity.
The printers’ device management and
diagnostic capabilities, provided through
Intermec SmartSystems™ and Wavelink
Avalanche™, reduce downtime and simplify
deployment. With user-selectable, all-inone programming languages (Fingerprint,
IPL, ZSim, DSim), the PX printers fit with
drop-in simplicity to Intermec or mixed
printer environments. Their modular design
facilitates integration into automated
labeling applications and industrystandard connectivity options support fast
The rugged, all-metal PX printers deliver
outstanding performance – up to 12 inches
per second from first label to last - and
incorporate features that reduce downtime
and minimize maintenance costs. Both
versions are available with 203 or 300-dpi
resolution, and the PX4i also offers 406
dpi, for precision labeling without any
loss of speed. This is ideal for compliance
labeling applications with variable data
requiring immediate results.
An enhanced self-strip option delivers
consistent performance across multiple
media types. Replacing printheads is
fast and easy, thanks to the magnetic
QuickMount™ printhead design. The PX
Series printers are co-engineered and
tested with Intermec labels and other
media products, optimizing performance
when used with genuine Intermec media.
Multiple interface options are available,
including the highest level of secure
wireless connectivity (WPA2). Available
with WiFi- and CCX-Certification, Intermec
industrial printers help maintain wireless
network integrity and reduce configuration
time. Every printer ships with Ethernet
connectivity, as well as with emerging
network protocol IPv6, ensuring long-term,
enterprise scalability.
The standard CompactFlash™ memory slot
is complemented by new USB host and
device support. Handy and PC-compatible,
these memory technologies provide extra
storage for Fingerprint programs, layouts,
graphics*, fonts and firmware upgrades.
The RFID-enabled PX printers enable
companies to create RFID smart labels and
drive the latest RFID applications.
