For businesses, barcode printing just got better

Designed to set a new standard in IT friendliness, the Intermec PF8 provides a compact, easy-to-use bar code printing solution that dramatically simplifies deployment and support. Its quiet, reliable operation and intuitive design makes the PF8 the right fit for light duty labeling applications in transportation/courier, healthcare, in-store retail and office environments.

Available in thermal transfer (PF8t) and direct thermal (PF8d) print technology models, the PF8 is packed with features that simplify deployment and reduce the need for IT support. In particular, the PF8 now includes Intermec PrintSet, a robust configuration tool that has long proven its value across the Intermec industrial printer line. PrintSet provides an easy tool for configuring printer and network settings, downloading fonts and graphics, and upgrading firmware, saving time for both set-up and ongoing maintenance.

The PF8 printers 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 such as the PC4, as well as from other desktop printers using the EPL printer language.

The PF8 printer series features Connect to Print, an all-inclusive package of software, drivers and cables for printer set-up, and a unique design for one-step, drop-in supply loading and tool-free replacement of print heads. The PF8t has the largest ribbon capacity in its class, meaning less time spent replacing ribbons. Both printers benefit from a 32-bit RISC processor enabling the printers to quickly handle graphic-intensive label formats.

PF8 printers come complete with LabelShop START, Intermec's label design software, and InterDriver Windows Driver, enabling users to easily print bar code labels from Windows applications, including Microsoft Office and other prevalent programs. In addition, Intermec Media now offers up to
fifteen take-from-stock label types pre-qualified for use on the PF8 printers.

Both the PF8d and the PF8t versions support a wide variety of 1D and 2D symbologies, including DataMatrix and QR codes. The PF8t is available with either 203 or 300 dots-per-inch resolution print heads.

PF8 is ideal for customers who are new to label printing or who are making the switch from laser or inkjet printers, the easy-to-use PF8 reduces training needs and trouble tickets. Its double-wall clamshell construction is durable and makes media loading (and reloading) intuitive and virtually trouble-free. Users can depend on the PF8 to consistently deliver reliable, high quality bar code output.
