Introducing the Honeywell PC42T as a great Entry Level Barcode Printer. I often get asked which is a great quality cheap or entry level printer that can print QR Codes on labels.
Honeywell PC42T Entry Level Barcode Printer
Based on more than 40 years of barcode printing innovations, the PC42t Plus desktop printer sets new standards for user friendliness and affordability. Exceptionally compact and easy to use, this printer is simple to install and ready to print quickly. Quiet, reliable operation and an intuitive design make the PC42t Plus the right fit for light-duty labeling applications in a variety of industries.
Available in either 12.7 mm (0.5 in) or 25.4 mm (1 in) ribbon core configurations and with a print speed up to 125 mm (5 ips), the PC42t Plus supports media as wide as 110 mm (4.3 in) and fits right into existing printing environments. The 25.4 mm configuration is compatible with ribbon lengths up to 300 m (984 ft) — more than four times the length of competitive offerings. With support for longer ribbons, downtime is reduced and ribbons can be shared with larger printers to provide increased media flexibility.
The PC42t Plus printer includes broad, industry-standard connectivity. Up to four ports are built-in: standard USB device and USB host, plus optional serial or serial+Ethernet. With rich interfaces, a compact size, and common media specifications, the PC42t Plus easily drops into virtually any application environment. The PC42t Plus printer supports ZPL II and EPL emulation, along with Direct Protocol (DP) and DPL, and auto senses the printing languages without any pre-setting, providing an easy upgrade path from a variety of legacy Intermec, Datamax, and competitive printers.
With its affordable price and modern features, the PC42t printer represents a smart solution for the small or medium business looking to improve productivity in label-making operations. Economical to purchase and use, the PC42t printer is also a great choice for those looking to deploy thermal label printing for the first time, or for those transitioning away from more expensive inkjet- or laser-based label printing methods.
