The I-O 4440 BarCode Interface offers the following exciting features:

- Interface settings are pre-configured for use with bar code label printers making installation a snap.
- Support of proprietary label printer languages permits user-friendly customization, diagnostics, and troubleshooting.

The I-O 4440 has an extremely low power requirement (about 1/2 watt). This not only saves on power costs, but allows the I-O 4440 to draw it's power from pin 18 of the parallel port, or pin #14 of the serial port, if the printer supports this option. This means there is no need to find an additional power plug, or decide where to put the power supply.
