Intermec announced the new PC43d and PC43t desktop printers for light duty labeling applications in transportation, courier, warehouse and office environments.
The new PC43d and PC43t printers are available in 4-inch direct thermal and 4-inch thermal transfer, respectively, and are ideal for space-constrained settings with a sleek and compact design. The entire PC Series also offers the fastest throughput in its class at eight inches per second, Intermec says.
Tailored for applications where users need trouble-free printing operations and quick set-up options, the PC Series is equipped with a universal Icon interface or color LCD in 10 languages to reduce training and support needs. The PC Series also includes the ability for one-handed media loading and quick configuration via a USB stick device.
Intermec says its PC43d direct thermal printer is optimized for the courier and postal markets, as well as office, retail and healthcare environments, and is ideal for customers looking to increase printing operations while reducing support calls to IT. The PC43d also delivers quick installation and flexible placement options with the ability to wall mount or use battery power.
Designed for the SMB manufacturing and distribution center environments, the PC43t thermal transfer printer delivers fast label output where the label is needed to boost efficiency and productivity. The printer accommodates the largest ribbon roll (up to 11,811 inches /300 m) in a desktop printer to reduce maintenance, the company says.
The PC Series accessories are all user installable. Additionally, the printers are programmable with the ability to directly add standard USB keyboards, scales or other peripherals for customized applications. The PC Series also comes with modular connectivity options for migration into existing network environments. USB is standard along with optional, serial, parallel, secure Ethernet or dual wireless card with Bluetooth® and CCX-compliant 802.11 b/g/n.
“The launch of the PC43 printers has not only enabled Intermec to extend the benefits of its user-friendly platform to most light duty printing environments, they have also introduced a product that is highly aligned with the needs of the rapidly emerging SMB (Small-Medium Business) market,” said Drew Nathanson, vice president of VDC Research Group’s Auto ID practice.
