Intemec EasyCoder 7421 Printer
Desktop Thermal or Thermal Transfer Bar Code Label and Tag Printer

The Intermec 7421 printer is the latest addition to the desktop printer family. Like the Intermec 7422 the Intermec 7421 features a small footprint and is designed for printing labels, tags, or continuous receipts.

The biggest advance with the Intermec 7421 is IPL compatibility. This means that any application developed using IPL2 or 86XX protocol is compatible with the Intermec 7421. Intermec has enhanced the memory management system. Base DRAM is 512K with storage memory options consisting of 1 MB or 4 MB cartridges that simply just plug in the printer.

The Intermec 7421 is also option rich which makes the printer even more application flexible. Options include the expandable storage memory for fonts, graphics, and formats as well as label self strip, cutter, and an external battery.

The addition of the Intermec 7421 desktop printer to the Intermec family of printers provides another economical low cost alternative for low duty on demand printing applications.
