PD42 Commercial Printer

Product Overview

A member of the smartest bar code printer family on the market, the Intermec PD42 is flexible and
programmable, enabling customers to optimize their printing operations, streamline deployment, and
achieve a quick return on investment. Built to meet the needs of mission-critical applications, the
rugged PD42 delivers advanced, secure connectivity and the latest network protocols, ensuring
peace-of-mind today and a reliable, scalable solution for the long haul. The versatile PD42 Commercial
Printer is part of Intermec's complete line of smart, strong and secure industrial printers.


The PD42's smart design features support increased productivity in demanding environments. As a
Smart Printer, it can host stand-alone applications, developed through the Intermec Fingerprint
programming language, which reduces errors and streamlines 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 PD42's integrated device management and diagnostic capabilities, provided through Intermec
SmartSystems™ and Wavelink Avalanche™, reduce downtime and simplify deployment. With
user-selectable, all-in-one programming languages (Fingerprint, IPL, ZSim, DSim, ESim), the
PD42 fits existing IT infrastructures, deploying with drop-in simplicity to Intermec or mixed printer
environments. Secure, industry-standard connectivity options support easy integration and fast deployment.


With its all-metal chassis and covers, proven printing mechanics and powerful electronics, the rugged
PD42 reduces downtime and minimizes maintenance costs. The PD42's graphical display allows users
to set up, configure and fine tune printing parameters without having to send commands through the host,
saving time. An open design makes media loading quick and easy, and the print head can easily be
replaced without tools. The printers are co-engineered and tested with Intermec labels and other media
products, ensuring optimized performance when used with genuine Intermec media.


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, optional parallel port – 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.
