Intermec Introduces New PC Series Desktop printer portfolio for Light Duty Labeling

Offering superior user experience in many different customer environments

Stuttgart, Germany, March 13, 2012 - At the Logimat 2012 exhibition Intermec, Inc. (NYSE: IN) announces the new series of desktop printer portfolio - providing intuitive, flexible and smart solutions for light duty labeling applications in transportation, courier, hospitality, manufacturing, warehouse and office environments. Designed to set a new standard in user friendliness and flexibility, the PC23d, PC43d and PC43t printers offers a complete new line of desktop printers with a purpose-built platform and innovative design.

The new PC23d, PC43d and PC43t printers are available in 2 and 4 inch direct thermal and 4 inch thermal transfer, respectively, and are perfect for space-constrained settings with a sleek and compact design. The entire PC Series also offers the fastest throughput in its class at eight inches per second.

"Built with customer challenges in mind, Intermec's PC Series of desktop printers are designed specifically to empower the user," said Chuck Dourlet, Intermec Vice President of Printers & Media. "With a highly intuitive and flexible design, Intermec's newest line of printers offers a fast return on investment by empowering users with simple set up, various ease of use and maintenance features, and a modular design enabling future upgrades for investment protection."

Tailored for applications where users need reliable, trouble-free printing operations and quick set-up options, the PC Series is equipped with a universal Icon interface or colour LCD in 10 languages for immediate and intuitive notifications to reduce training and support needs while maximizing uptime. The PC Series also includes the ability for one-handed media loading and quick configuration via a USB stick device, making the printers easy to install and maintain.

Easy to install, maintain and support
Intermec's PC43d direct thermal printer is optimized for the courier and postal markets, as well as office and retail environments, and is ideal for customers looking to increase printing operations on items such as shipping labels, while reducing support calls to IT with the simple user experience and easy self-maintenance capabilities. The PC43d also delivers quick installation and flexible placement options with the ability to wall mount or use battery power, making it an easy fit into many different environments.

Increase worker productivity, lower support expenses
Designed for user-friendliness and flexibility in the SMB manufacturing and distribution center environments, the PC43t thermal transfer printer delivers the fastest label output closest to where the label is needed, boosting efficiency and productivity. The printer accommodates the largest ribbon roll (up to 11,811 inches /300 m) in a desktop printer, reducing the need for frequent replacements and helping to maximize uptime.

User-friendly, efficient printing in healthcare environments
PC23d - an intuitive, flexible and smart desktop printer designed to set a new standard for user-friendly, efficient printing operations in healthcare environments. With a compact and purpose-built design, the two-inch PC23d direct thermal printer is ideal for hospital settings and an affordable choice for healthcare organizations performing wristband and labeling applications including patient tracking, sample and bedside labeling as well as pharmacy and medical records. PC23d is designed for quick set-up and trouble-free use, ideal for healthcare customers new to barcode printing or who are making the switch from laser or inkjet.

With the fastest print speed in its class at eight inches per second, simple one-handed media loading and the ability to configure on the spot with a USB flash drive - no computer required -it's also optimized with a disinfectant resistant case, built to resist chemicals and cleaners. Additionally, Intermec's INband wristband media offers a tested and proven wristband solution with the ability to withstand repeated exposure to moisture, water and sanitizers.

The PC Series accessories are all user installable, allowing users to quickly and easily add necessary accessories without advanced knowledge. Additionally, the printers are programmable with the ability to directly add standard USB keyboards, scales or other peripherals for customized applications that simplify processes and can eliminate hardware. The PC Series also comes with modular connectivity options for easy migration into the existing network environments. USB is standard along with optional, serial, parallel, secure Ethernet or dual wireless card with Bluetooth® and CCX-compliant 802.11 b/g/n.

"The new PC desktop printer family from Intermec is a great addition to the ScanSource portfolio says Bert Fonderie, ScanSource's VP Merchandising ScanSource Barcode & POS Europe. "The printers are modular, so our resellers can pick and choose the options they need for their customers. Our resellers can also add value to the printers by attaching scanners and small printing applications which the printer can host without the need for a PC. The new printers also create a great opportunity for the reseller community to improve their margins."

"The launch of the PC43 printers has not only enabled Intermec to extend the benefits of its user-friendly platform to most light duty printing environments, they have also introduced a product that is highly aligned with the needs of the rapidly emerging SMB (Small-Medium Business) market," said Drew Nathanson, Vice President of VDC Research Group's Auto ID practice.
