Intermec Technologies (NYSE: IN) today announced enhancements to its PF8 desktop thermal printers – including internal Ethernet and Intermec PrintSet configuration support. The new features streamline printer deployment and minimize maintenance for light duty applications in transportation/courier, manufacturing, healthcare, in-store retail and office environments.
“The PF8 chosen by GeoPost, perfectly meets the need to identify express parcels using barcodes, for customers dealing with tens to hundreds of parcels per day,” Jean-Luc Defrance, group chief information officer of GeoPost. “The printer is compact and easy to use which makes it the perfect solution for customers dealing with a large volume of express parcels. Its compatibility with the Intermec PC4 printer is a very useful extra function.”
Intermec PrintSet provides a simple mechanism for configuring printer and network settings, downloading fonts and graphics and upgrading firmware – saving time for both set-up and ongoing support. The PF8 printers, available in thermal transfer (PF8t) and direct thermal (PF8d) technology models, include flexible, industry standard connectivity - including parallel, serial, USB and optional internal Ethernet – enabling easy, drop-in installation in networked environments.
With their compact size, common media specifications, and ESIM printer language, the PF8 printers provide an easy migration path from legacy Intermec printers like the PC4, and other desktop printers using the EPL printer language.
“The PF8 has the right combination of size, features and price for business and healthcare applications that require a small footprint and big value,” said Tom Roth, director of Intermec Printer Marketing. "The printer provides fast, accurate performance with minimal IT support, delivering a dependable easy to use label printing experience right out of the box".
