Intermec Smart Printers

July 16, 2009
Intermec is adding three new rugged mobile printers to its PB product family–the PB21, PB31 and PB51. The new printers have more memory and print faster than competing solutions and, the company claims, are the industry’s only “smart” rugged mobile receipt and invoice printers.

Because user-defined receipt and invoice applications can be hosted on the printers, there is no need to use a host computer. For in-premise or field-mobility applications in which a host computer is used, the PB printers offer Bluetooth or 801.11b/g secure wireless connectivity as well as serial and USB wired connectivity.

The two-, three- and four-inch printers allow a mobile logistics workforce to print high-quality, graphically complex receipts. The printers can withstand wide temperature ranges, high humidity and drops of 6 ½ feet.

Intermec says the printers will be available for volume shipment in North America in the third quarter of 2009.
