The Intermec rugged mobile label printer
family delivers the fastest choice for
customers with demanding applications in
warehousing, distribution, in-store retail
and enterprise asset management. Coupled
with Intermec rugged mobile computers
and software, the PB22, PB32 and PB50
mobile label printers help companies
improve productivity and efficiency while
lowering the total cost of ownership.
With ultra-fast print speed and proven
two to three times faster time-to-firstlabel* than competitive products, these
printers deliver measurable improvements
in worker productivity and accuracy.
Unique design elements, such as the label
gap and label take sensors, help maintain
productivity while reducing waste.
The PB label printer family is built on
a common electrical and mechanical
foundation, and integrates closely with
Intermec mobile computers and software,
including Intermec Terminal Emulation
(ITE) and Intermec SmartSystems®.
This integrated approach provides
significant efficiencies in development,
deployment and support, and optimizes
speed and performance. Intermec
SmartSystems provides remote
monitoring and diagnostics to networked
devices so problems can be resolved
quickly. Shared accessories across the
family add flexibility and reduce spares
inventory and costs. Intermec media
options, designed specifically for the PB
printers, ensure consistently high print
quality across a range of applications.
Leveraging the Intermec platform
gives companies a solution that can
adapt and grow with their needs. As
“smart” printers, the rugged PB printers
can host stand-alone applications
developed through Intermec Fingerprint
programming to address custom
requirements today or in the future,
without the need to upgrade hardware.
The printers’ comprehensive options
and easy adaptability meet a range of
application needs. Drop-in media loading,
adjustable media holders, and the flexibility
to print either receipts or labels enables
workers to easily change tasks without
changing equipment. A choice of secure
wired and wireless interfaces (802.11 b/g,
BT, Serial, USB) allows you to select the
one that fits your environment. Multiple
carrying options are available, including
belt clip, shoulder strap and vehicle mount.
The rugged design of the PB22, PB32
and PB50 printers means performance
you can depend on, day after day. Built
