The PD42 is a dependable and versatile printer suitable for medium duty applications in manufacturing, transportation and warehousing environments. With all-metal chassis and covers, proven printing mechanics and powerful electronics, it provides the sturdiness and performance your business depends on.
The PD42 is the first Intermec printer to feature a monochrome, graphical display, which allows users to set up, configure and fine tune printing parameters without having to send commands through the host, saving time. The display working in concert with the status lights provides the user specific feedback if the printer is in an off-line state.
The ability to use any Intermec printer language and emulate other printer protocols makes the PD42 both fully compatible with other Intermec equipment and a cost-effective "drop-in" printer replacement in almost any non-Intermec firmware environment.
Using Fingerprint programming language, the PD42 can change with the application. There's no need to replace the printer when you upgrade your software environment - the printer will adapt. The PD42 keeps your options open and protects your investment.
The printer accepts a wide range of paper types in different thicknesses, as well as both ink-in and ink-out ribbon. In addition the PD42 offers many Smart Printing features normally found only in high-performance printers. By adding Intermec's LabelShop Pro and XMLLabel, the PD42 will be fully provisioned for XML printing environments.
Support for Unicode fonts and Intermec Ready-to-Work indicator are standard - all at an affordable and competitive price. Networking is an increasingly important user requirement but still a rare feature in this printer class. The PD42 offers high-speed, multi-channel Ethernet as a standard choice.
An open and accessible design makes media loading quick and easy, and the print head can easily be replaced without using any tools.
