Ensure consistent print quality, reduce downtime and increase productivity in your printing process. We manufacture each supplies product with the exact same materials every time so you always get crisp, readable and scannable output without needing to adjust the printer darkness setting between rolls.
- The Link-OS Environment In-depth
To meet changing expectations and growing demands for devices that are mobile, intelligent and connected to the Cloud, We created a software platform to support its devices: The Link- OS environment. This innovative solution makes printers even easier to integrate, manage and maintain than ever before — from any location.
The Link-OS environment is highly flexible, allowing new and creative ways for users to develop applications that interact with printers from mobile devices located anywhere in the world. Users can perform updates, gather data, and make smarter business choices from new analytic-driven insights.
- Cutting-edge Technology and Features. Simple to Operate.
The 486004 is available in both direct thermal and thermal transfer models and it’s compatible with inlays from all leading suppliers. It can be used with a variety of RFID labels and tags from small, item-level hang tags to large case and pallet labels. Reduce media costs, waste and time spent changing rolls as the 486004 encodes RFID inlays that are spaced closer together. ENERGY STAR qualified, the printer saves you money throughout its lifecycle.
- Advanced Features and Options to Match Your Needs
Able to handle the most demanding applications, the printer features standard Parallel, Serial, USB and Ethernet connectivity; large memory; Choose from options such as cutter and peeler, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi-certified communications, and high-resolution 300 dpi printing.
- Simple Integration and Oversight
The 486004 leverages the Link-OS environment — an innovative software platform with powerful applications that enhance the capabilities of the printer, so you can easily integrate it into global operations and manage it from any location.
Featuring the Link-OS Cloud Connect application, these printers can connect to the Cloud directly and securely, forwarding data from any port.
