T4M/SL4M Thermal Barcode Printers

Highlights

You can count on the cost-effective, rugged SL/T4M to give your company lightning-fast performance and multiple printer language support. Using the PSA3™ advanced electronic architecture found in our high performance SL/T5000r, the SL/T4M incorporates seamlessly into other printer brand environments.

The flexible T4M features:

  • 4-inch thermal transfer or direct thermal, industrial and commercial grade, RFID-ready barcode printer
  • Embedded Printer Language Support including Printronix, Zebra, TEC, Sato, Intermec, and Datamax
  • Large graphic user interface and color-coded user cues
  • Quick Change Memory Cartridge (QCMC) from Printronix saves users time. The QCMC is a memory stick that can be pre-programmed with all of the printer’s configurations, network settings, fonts and any downloaded forms.
  • Adjustable transmissive sensor with auto-calibration
  • XML enabled printing and XML based remote management via PXML
  • The SL4M Standard Pitch uses the same MP2 encoding technology and PSA3 advanced electronic architecture found in the high performance SL5000r-ES printer
  • The SL4M Short Pitch option utilizes short-pitch technology which allows it to print smaller, more affordable labels for closed loop and item level RFID applications.

Find out how the robust T4M can help maximize your productivity while helping you meet your growing printing requirements by providing you with verifiable quality output.

ETHERNET 10/11BASE-T NIC

The Ethernet 10/100Base-T NIC Supports data transfer rates of 100 Mbps

FULL MEDIA REWINDER

In batch rewind mode, rewinds printed labels into a removable roll or a 3 inch diameter media take-up core. The printer may be ordered with this option installed or it can be field installed at a later date by an authorized service representative.

STANDARD PEEL WITH LINER REWINDER

In label peel-off mode, peels off labels one at a time before printing the next label and rewinds the liner into a discardable roll. The printer may be ordered with this option installed or it can be field installed by an authorized service representative at a later date.

MEDIA CUTTER
