PC23d Barcode Printers

The Honeywell PC23d is nearing end of life. It will soon be replaced by the Honeywell PC43.

The Intermec PC23d barcode printer is an easy to use and easy to install option for businesses needing a space saving printer. This nimble printer is an ideal choice for smaller retailers, hospital labeling, or any environment where you may print up to a thousand labels a day.

A direct thermal printer, the PC23d runs at a top print speed of eight inches per second. For longer print jobs, such as relabeling shelves or a product shipment, this cuts wait time in half compared to similar printers. Optional models support RFID encoding, great for asset tracking in warehouses. USB is standard on the PC23d, though there are add-ons and adapters to support serial, parallel, or ethernet printing.

Select PC23d printers come equipped with a built-in LCD display, providing verbose messages about error statuses. These printers can also be programmed to work as a fully standalone device, using software installed via USB and managed from the LCD touchscreen. For businesses with limited label varieties, this can cut down on installation requirements.

Intermec built the PC23d with durability and longevity in mind, especially in healthcare environments. The printer uses disinfectant resistant plastic, meaning it will not be damaged when cleaned with various cleaning agents. Replacing parts, such as the printhead or platen roller, requires no tools, cutting downtime and making it easy for anyone to service the printer. A 1-year warranty is standard, with optional Medallion service packages available, further extending the PC23d's return on investment.

Honeywell PC23d Reviews

POSGuys Rating:

One of the fastest and best price desktop label printers available. Built by the Intermec division of Honeywell so you know the product will be built to last. The LCD screen version adds a simplicity to setup and configuration and is highly recommended to anyone that changes their label sizes often. Compatible with a variety of media, we tested with both Honeywell media and Zebra media with perfect results. If you need a thermal transfer version please see the PC43t printer from Honeywell.

PC23 Label Printer Video

Hi, this is Travis with Today we're going to take a look at a label printer. And this is a label printer from Intermec. This is their entry-level printer on their desktop line. So it's not designed for industrial use but it has some specifications that are pretty close to industrial levels. For instance, it has 8-inch print speed. 8 inches per second is amazing in a desktop printer line. Most desktop printers are in a 4-inch range, so this is about double what you typically see in a desktop printer.

It also has a very nice and convenient LCD screen here. This LCD screen makes calibration and configuring the computer really easy. Instead of having to use LED buttons or LED lights turning off the printer, turning it on, holding down the printers that are going on a series of commands that way. You scroll through a menu, select the feature or calibration that you want to do, and then just hit Enter and the printer does it. So, a very nice feature that makes calibration much easier.

This is the 4-inch print width. This is the 2-inch print width. There's also version without the LCD screen if you're looking to save some money, and there's also versions that use ribbon, the thermal transfer version. This is the direct thermal version, so a very fast printer, a very economical printer too and something definitely that you'd want to consider.

Going to demonstrate the fantastic 8-inch per second print speed of the PC43D. I have the free version of single bar tender running here. I have just a sample label set up. We're using about a 2-inch by 2-inch label, and I'm going to print about 20 of them at full speed. As you can see the labels print up, came out very fast and there's no gaps. It didn't skip any labels which mean the calibration has been perfect. It lined up just like it see the label on the screen that's just how you see the label printed. So overall, very good print speed, very good results.

Taking a closer look at these labels, you can see that the text is very crisp, the bar code is very nice, there's no jaggidy edges around them, so very good print results for printing at full speed. Sometimes printers don't print quite as clear as full speed. This one seems to print very good. Wanted to quickly show the calibration process for this printer. From the home menu, press the Menu button. Scroll down to Wizards. Scroll down to calibration. Select media. You're going to select your media type. This is media with gaps. It spits out two labels, and it identifies the gap on the labels, very easy, very quick to do.

This is the PC43D desktop label printer, and the 23D desktop label printer. This is a 2-inch print width, this is a 4-inch print width. Keep in mind there's a couple of upgraded versions available. If you want a 300 DPI printer to do very small bar codes, about a 3 mail bar code, then you'll want to look for the 300 DPI model. There's also is a thermal transfer model, if you want the more durable thermal transfer media. Overall, a very nice printer. It has a 1-year warranty.
