I-Class Barcode Printers

The Datamax-O'Neil I-Class has reached end of life. It has been replaced by the Datamax-O'Neil I-Class Mark II.

Datamax revolutionized the four-inch printer market in 1999 with the introduction of the rugged I-Class™ thermal bar code printers. Since then, competitors have tried to copy the original and repackage their old printers to match. Today, the industry’s most innovative product is now even better! Datamax raises the bar again with the introduction of the evolved I-4208™. Built to meet the toughest printing requirements, the I-4208 incorporates many standard features normally found as options on competitive products. Superior price and value make the I-4208 the premier 4 printer in the world.

Free 1D barcode label design software is available with this printer. Datamax O'Neil's NETira is designed to support the I-Class offering printing of 1D barcodes, graphics, and text. Please note that this software can not utilize database information. For software that can input database information in label designs we recommend SeaGull Bartender Professional .
