Kenco® 3830S Industrial Thermal Printer

Step up to our next-generation industrial thermal printer, the Kenco 3830s. With a large full-color touch-screen and rugged die-cast metal frame, the 3830s is ideally suited for high-output barcode and label-printing in harsh industrial environments. Around the back, you'll find an auto-sensing “C” Button for fast and simple label calibration, as well as Serial, Ethernet, and 4 USB Ports, right out of the box. In the box, you'll find the free (yet surprisingly-capable) label design software, GoLabel (Windows) along with powerful print drivers from Seagull Scientific. Lastly, the 3830s is fully backed by an industry-leading three-year manufacturer's warranty—making it the obvious choice for your most demanding barcode and label-printing needs.
