The Intermec EasyCoder PD42 can print demanding crisp variable-data labels continuously at 150 mm/s (6 ips). It takes industry standard 200-mm (8-in) rolls of labels and 450 m (18 000 in) of ribbon, reducing downtime for loading media to a minimum. 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 EasyCoder PD42 offers many Smart Printing features normally found only in high-performance printers. By adding Intermec's LabelShop Pro and XMLLabel, the EasyCoder 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 EasyCoder PD42 offers high-speed, multi-channel Ethernet as a standard choice.
