Designed specifically for use with Intermec CN3/e, CN4/e and CN70/e mobile computers, the PW50 four-inch mobile workboard printer provides a convenient, integrated solution for DSD and field service applications. With its integrated DEX communications, fast print speed, Bluetooth connectivity, and optional integrated smart card and magnetic stripe readers, the PW50 provides everything the mobile worker needs to process transactions quickly and easily.

This integrated solution provides a single convenient bundle that can easily be transported or installed in a vehicle. Custom holders safely secure the handheld computer in the mobile printer, yet allow easy removal for scanning or data entry.



Patented power management of the beefy 4-cell Li-Ion battery enables the PW50 to maintain consistent voltage to the print head for high quality printing, independent of the charge remaining in the battery. Battery capacity is designed to print 2 full rolls of receipts with 10% density text without the need to charge or change the batteries. With 64MB of on-board Flash memory and the ability to store a full Unicode font, the PW50 gives users the flexibility to easily use multiple languages. In addition, users can improve throughput by storing frequently-used formats and graphics on the printer, eliminating the need to download large files from the mobile computer.
