Intermec PF8

Intermec PF8 Thermal Transfer or Direct Thermal Desktop Label Printer

Available in thermal transfer (PF8t) and direct thermal (PF8d) print technology models, the PF8 is packed with features that simplify deployment and reduce the need for IT support. In particular, the PF8 now includes Intermec PrintSet, a robust configuration tool that has long proven its value across the Intermec industrial printer line. PrintSet provides an easy tool for configuring printer and network settings, downloading fonts and graphics, and upgrading firmware, saving time for both set-up and ongoing maintenance.

The PF8 printers include flexible, industry standard connectivity – including parallel, serial, USB and optional internal Ethernet – enabling easy, drop-in installation in networked environments. With their compact size, common media specifications, and ESIM printer language, the PF8 printers provide an easy migration path from legacy Intermec printers such as the PC4, as well as from other desktop printers using the EPL printer language.

The PF8’s off-the-shelf compatibility and certifications with a wide range of business and healthcare software applications enables users to be up and running quickly, requiring minimal IT support.
