Intermec Announces Replacement of PM4i with the PM43

Posted March 22, 2013

The full-sized PM43 is the direct replacement for the PM4i, and the compact PM43c directly replaces the PF4i industrial printer.

Q: How is the PM43 printer positioned within the Intermec printer line?

A: The PM43 series is targeted at the high end of the industrial mid-range printer market segment. With the ability to run Fingerprint/DP, IPL, DSIM, and ZSIM all pre-loaded on the printer and with full backwards compatibility, the PM43 provides a “drop-in” replacement for most applications currently using 86XX, 4000, 4100, 3400, 401, F4i, PF4i and PM4i printers.

Q: What is the difference between the PM43 and the PM43c?

A: The PM43 and PM43c have the same electronics package and similar mechanical design. The user interface between the PM43 and PM43c differs slightly in the layout of the keypad. The taller PM43 accommodates a 212mm (8.375in) media roll, 450mm (18,000in) ribbon and optional full-batch rewinder. It features two available slots for optional interface cards and both front and rear USB host ports.
