PC43t, PC43d and PC23d Desktop Printers

PC43t, PC43d and PC23d Desktop Printers

Simple to install and easy to use, the 101.6 mm (4 in) PC43t (thermal transfer) and PC43d (direct thermal) printers – along with the 50.8 mm (2 in) PC23d printer – are perfect for space-constrained settings. They offer tailored solutions for transportation and courier, healthcare, retail and hospitality markets, as well as small and medium businesses.

PC43t, PC43d and PC23d Desktop Printers are designed to set a new standard in ease of use and flexibility. With one of the broadest feature sets in the desktop printer class, it’s no wonder the PC series is a popular choice for light-duty, desktop labeling tasks.

The PC series offers three configurations:

  • 101.6 mm (4 in) thermal transfer (PC43t)
  • 101.6 mm (4 in) direct thermal (PC43d)
  • 50.8 (2 in) direct thermal (PC23d)

With numerous features typically found in larger, more expensive printers, PC series printers feature a multi-language LCD or icon user interface, user-installable connectivity options and accessories, and speedy label printing.

The PC series was designed by users for quick set-up and trouble-free use. The printer adapts to its environment and fits right in with a variety of placement options, including wall mount and battery power. No need to waste time deciphering blinking LEDs – PC printers come with a color LCD in 10 languages or a universal icon interface for immediate notifications that ensure minimal training and support.

Configure and update your PC printer on the spot with the USB host port – no computer needed. And one-hand drop-in media loading makes resupply a breeze.
