Product Overview

A member of the smartest bar code printer family on the market, the PM4i is flexible and programmable, enabling customers to optimize their printing operations, streamline deployment, and achieve quick return on investment. Built to meet the needs of mission-critical applications, the rugged PM4i delivers advanced, secure connectivity and the latest network protocols, ensuring peace-of-mind today and a reliable, scalable solution for the long haul. The popular PM4i Mid-Range Printer is part of Intermec's complete line of smart, strong and secure industrial printers.

Smart

The PM4i's smart design features support increased productivity in demanding environments. As a Smart Printer, the PM4i can host stand-alone applications, developed through Intermec Fingerprint programming language, which reduce errors and streamline operational processes. Smart Printers can eliminate the PC and control other devices directly (such as scanners, scales, applicators), improving efficiency and decreasing infrastructure costs and complexity.

The PM4i's integrated device management and diagnostic capabilities, provided through Intermec SmartSystems™ and Wavelink Avalanche™, reduce downtime and simplify deployment. With its user-selectable, all-in-one programming languages (Fingerprint, IPL, ZSim, DSim), the PM4i fits existing IT infrastructures, deploying with drop-in simplicity to Intermec or mixed printer environments. Its secure, industry-standard connectivity options support easy integration and fast deployment.

Strong

The rugged, all-metal PM4i incorporates features that reduce downtime and minimize maintenance costs. Its enhanced self-strip option delivers consistent performance across multiple media types. For precision labeling, its 406 dpi print head delivers exceptional, pinpoint accuracy. Replacing printheads is fast and easy, thanks to the magnetic QuickMount™ printhead design. The PM4i is co-engineered and tested with Intermec labels and other media products, ensuring optimized, superior performance when used with genuine Intermec media.

Secure

Multiple interface options are available, including the highest level of secure wireless connectivity (WPA2). The industry's only printers available with WiFi- and CCX-Certification, Intermec industrial printers help maintain wireless network integrity and reduce configuration time. Every printer ships with Ethernet connectivity, as well as with emerging network protocol IPv6, ensuring long-term, enterprise scalability. Other connectivity options – standard RS232 and USB ports, and optional parallel, double serial or industrial interfaces – provide additional integration flexibility.

The standard CompactFlash™ memory slot is complemented by new USB host and device support. Handy, inexpensive and PC-compatible, CompactFlash and USB memory technologies provide extra storage for Fingerprint programs, layouts, graphics*, fonts and firmware upgrades.
