PA30 Specialty Printer

PA30 Specialty Printer

Intermec’s PA30 Print Engine is a rugged, reliable, metal, high performance applicator print engine designed to increase label placement accuracy and productivity in demanding 24/7 print and apply applications. The Intermec PA30 is easily upgradeable to RFID with Intermec’s IM4 RFID reader module.

With its extra input/output receptacle (I/O), the PA30 can execute user-defined programs thereby eliminating the need for a PC. Flexible connectivity enables the use of up to seven wired and wireless interfaces simultaneously allowing the PA30 to issue commands to production line machinery, conveyors, and other printers, as well as access information directly from the network host.

The Intermec PA30 is fully programmable is not restricted by printer command language. It delivers investment protection by easily adapting to changing host environments and applications.

The PA30 can communicate with and replace competitive print engines without changes to host programming or label format design, providing additional functionality and continued investment protection.

The combination of powerful individually controlled micro-step motors, high capacity power supply and sophisticated thermal management print head ensures high-quality labels each and every time at up to 12 inches (30.5 cm) per second (first to last label).

Based on PX printer technology, proven technology used in variety of custom made applicators, the PA30 features 4-inch (10 cm) print width with left hand orientation and the same 5-bolt pattern used in other OEM Print Engine products. The PA30 is available with interchangeable 203 or 300 dpi resolution print heads.
