Honeywell RL3E RL4E


Honeywell RLE Series rugged portable label printers

 built to keep pace in the busiest distribution centers, warehouses, supply chains, and logistics environments

Honeywell Datamax-O’Neil built its reputation on rugged and reliable portable receipt printers. Our design expertise is now reflected in the RLe Series of rugged portable label printers.

Anybody who’s ever worked in a warehouse knows that when shipments are processed quickly and effectively, productivity is increased and errors are reduced. The RLe Series improves efficiency and productivity by allowing workers to print and apply barcode labels directly at the point of application. Using the RLe Series to print on-demand labels also eliminates the danger of mixing up batch-printed labels and can lead to big savings by avoiding shipping errors. The printers can even be mounted on forklifts for added convenience and versatility.


  • The RLe Series continues to print after 26 consecutive drops to concrete from 1.8 m (6 ft), even in extreme temperature conditions.
  • Includes popular language emulations that allow you to easily replace existing printers in the workplace.
  • The lithium-ion battery offers maximum power capacity for an eight-hour shift, even under the toughest conditions.
  • Change paper rolls with one hand. Speed label application with an intuitive LCD screen and a peel-andpresent mechanism.
  • Co-engineered media supplies ensure optimum, troublefree performance and guarantee the highest print quality and image stability.
