Product Overview
The Intermec rugged mobile label printer family delivers the fastest choice for customers with demanding applications in warehousing, distribution, in-store retail and enterprise asset management. Coupled with Intermec rugged mobile computers and software, the PB22, PB32 and PB50 mobile label printers help companies improve productivity and efficiency while lowering the total cost of ownership. With ultra-fast print speed and proven two to three times faster time-to-first-label* than competitive products, these printers deliver measurable improvements in worker productivity and accuracy. Unique design elements, such as the label gap and label take sensors, help maintain productivity while reducing waste.

The PB label printer family is built on a common electrical and mechanical foundation, and integrates closely with Intermec mobile computers and software, including Intermec Terminal Emulation (ITE) and Intermec SmartSystems®. This integrated approach provides significant efficiencies in development, deployment and support, and optimizes speed and performance. Intermec SmartSystems provides remote monitoring and diagnostics to networked devices so problems can be resolved quickly. Shared accessories across the family add flexibility and reduce spares inventory and costs. Intermec media options, designed specifically for the PB printers, ensure consistently high print quality across a range of applications.

Leveraging the Intermec platform gives companies a solution that can adapt and grow with their needs. As “smart” printers, the rugged PB printers can host stand-alone applications developed through Intermec Fingerprint programming to address custom requirements today or in the future, without the need to upgrade hardware.

The printers’ comprehensive options and easy adaptability meet a range of application needs. Drop-in media loading, adjustable media holders, and the flexibility to print either receipts or labels enables workers to easily change tasks without changing equipment. A choice of secure wired and wireless interfaces (802.11 b/g, BT, Serial, USB) allows you to select the one that fits your environment. Multiple carrying options are available, including belt clip, shoulder strap and vehicle mount.

The rugged design of the PB22, PB32 and PB50 printers means performance you can depend on, day after day. Built *Based on tests conducted by Intermec Technologies 03-04/09.
