State-of-the-art printhead mechanism.  The patented printhead locking mechanism and easy-to-use media guides permit labels or tags to be firmly positioned, thus maintaining accurate media tracking and producing high quality images.  An easily accessible print block makes it a snap to install media and ribbons, and allows for easy cleaning of the printhead. In addition, the EZ Change™ Printhead allows the user to move back and forth from a 203 dpi to a 300 dpi printhead with no tools or special programming. An EZ Change™ Printhead means no tools are needed.

Large Graphic LCD.  A backlit LCD display and three LEDs provide feedback on the printer's operational status and offer quick access to its configuration menu.  In addition, some elements of the display can be edited to include customized contact details, enabling end users to get help acquiring supplies of service.

Stand Alone Capability.  The Falcon 4 plus is notable for its ability to run as a stand alone printer.  By using a standard PS/2 keyboard, the operator can print labels directly from the Falcon 4 plus.  This optional feature makes the Falcon 4 Plus indispensable in areas where a PC connection is either impossible or is not feasible.  The stand alone function requires the use of C-Label IV, the fully functional label creation software that is shipped with each printer.

Flexible Thermal Transfer Operation.  The Falcon 4 Plus uses ribbons that are designed for flat printheads, and offers the user the flexibility of selecting either coated-side in or coated-side out inking.  The 450M ribbon capacity is perfect for employing the printer in large volume industrial applications.
