Supplies & Accessories

THERMAL BARCODE MEDIA AND RFID SMART LABELS

The best printing solution is achieved when the printer, ribbon, and media are matched to the application requirements. The use of Genuine Printronix Thermal Media  or RFID Smart Labels  will ensure image quality, consistent bar code or RFID tag performance, and optimum application output required for today’s production environments.

THERMAL TRANSFER RIBBONS

Genuine Printronix Thermal Transfer Ribbons used in a thermal or RFID printer are a critical element of the printing system. It’s design, specification and selection are of the utmost importance in maintaining the integrity of the printer and the application. Printronix, with its years of experience in the design of printers and their applications, promises that you will receive the exact material required to maximize the performance of your Printronix printer.

ONLINE DATA VALIDATION

Online Data Validation  (ODV) is an option exclusive to our T5000r-ES thermal bar code and SL5000r-ES MP2 RFID printers. This unique quality control option can inspect the bar codes on every label printed on a Printronix thermal or RFID printer. If any bar code on a label fails, the label is automatically cancelled and a replacement label is printed.

PRINTHEADS

Printronix Printheads are engineered to optimize performance of your Printronix printer.  Designed to be end-user replaceable; our easy to install printheads ensures a quick replacement, reducing downtime and minimizing operating costs.

Available in 203 & 300 dpi options for 4″, 6″ and 8″ formats.

Use genuine Printronix Thermal Media to double your Printhead warranty.

 

PRINTNET ENTERPRISE ETHERNET

PrintNet Enterprise combines a fully integrated Ethernet adapter and Java-based remote management software giving users flexibility and control of their printers. This printer management tool provides increased IT resource efficiency, reduced downtime costs, maximized security, and complete compatibility across Printronix printing technologies.

 

CUTTER AND CUTTER TRAY

For applications that require individual labels or groups of labels for applications such as item level part numbering or pallet labeling, the T5000r-ES printers may be ordered with a cutter mechanism installed (for cutting tags and label liner), or the option can be installed by an authorized service representative at a later date. Once installed, the printer can be configured to automatically cut media after each or a specified number of labels is printed.

 

WIRELESS ETHERNET

The T5000r-ES and SL5000r-ES MP2 RFID printers provide 802.11b/g wireless Ethernet connectivity. The wireless option comes standard with the powerful remote printer management tool, PrintNet Enterprise. This option can be factory installed or it can be installed in the field by an authorized service representative.

 

TN5250/3270

Traditionally, migrating away from twinax or coax to Ethernet eliminated valuable job control along with costly and inflexible infrastructure. Now, with TN5250, TN3270, or the latest IPDS, the choice between job control and cost reduction/flexibility is eliminated. These new options now enable Ethernet printing with the job control these mission critical applications require. Not only does this option preserve the job control, it also adds all the remote management capability of PrintNet Enterprise.

 

REWIND KIT

For applications that require on the spot labeling or batch production, the internal rewinder supports Peel-Off and Batch Rewind media handling modes. The printer can be ordered with a rewinder or it can be field installed at a later date by an authorized service representative.

 

COAX/TWINAX HOST INTERFACE

The coax/twinax host interface option mounts inside the printer and functions as a protocol converter to allow the direct connection of the printer to a host computer that uses either a coax or a twinax data interface. The printer may be ordered with the coax/twinax option installed, or it can be field installed by an authorized service representative.

 

RFID UPGRADE KITS

RFID Upgrade Kit allows a customer to upgrade their standard T5000r-ES thermal bar code printer (4in/6in only) to an RFID SmartLine printer in the field for an easy transition to RFID when needed.

 

REAL TIME CLOCK

The Real Time Clock (RTC) is a clock chip with internal battery. The clock keeps track of the year, month, day, hour, minute and second values. It will continue to operate when the printer is off. Graphic languages can use the RTC values to program fields in labels to indicate the date and/or time. This is useful for printing production and expiration dates.

 

GPIO (GENERAL PURPOSE INPUT OUTPUT)

GPIO is both hardware and software. The hardware is the actual IO board to be mounted in the printer, and the software is the GPIO Manager which is part of the Printronix PrintNet Enterprise Suite remote management software. The GPIO hardware is a printed circuit board containing optically isolated inputs, outputs and relays. The GPIO software is both a printer resident GPIO event parser and a PC-based GPIO manager that allows the user to define how the general purpose IO hardware should behave for the given application.
