M-Class Mark II Options
A printing method that uses ribbon to produce exceptional image clarity, as compared to most direct thermal media types. This option must be specified for use with either ‘coated side in’ ribbon or ‘coated side out’ ribbon.
A rotary-type mechanism to automatically cut material with a maximum thickness of .010” (.254 mm) into minimum lengths of 1.25 inches (31.8 mm). Designed for ease of operation, the Media Cutter is automatically detected, configured, and enabled when installed on the printer.
Peel and Present Mechanism (requires the Internal Rewind option)
An output control device that automatically separates printed labels from the backing material and allows subsequent printing to occur only after the removal of a previously printed label. Minimum label length is 1.5 inches (38 mm). Designed for ease of operation, the Peel and Present Mechanism is automatically detected, configured, and enabled when installed on the printer.
An internal mechanism to wind four-inch outer diameter rolls of printed labels, or the label backing material when using the Peel and Present option.
An output control device that allows subsequent printing to occur only after the removal of a previously printed label. Designed for ease of operation, the Present Sensor is automatically detected, configured, and enabled when installed on the printer.
FLASH Memory Expansion (requires new main PCB)
An optional main PCB assembly is available with 4MB (M-4206) Flash memory expansion for International Language Printing Capability (ILPC) and/or additional fonts and graphics.
The International Language Print Capability consisting of one of the following:
- CG-Times (western European) Scalable font
- Kanji Gothic B Scalable font
- Simplified Chinese GB Scalable font
- Korean Hangul font
The DMX100 External Print Server is an external Network Interface Controller (NIC) that enables the printer to provide Ethernet connectivity.
Internal Ethernet Connectivity
The Internal Ethernet Print Server is an internal Network Interface Controller (NIC) that enables the printer to provide Ethernet connectivity. Features include:
- Automatic selection of 10Base2 (Thinnet) or 100BaseT Fast Ethernet connection.
- Integral HTTP Server to allow monitoring and management from a standard Web browser program.
- FTP printing to allow printing directly from a Web browser or other FTP client.
- LPR/LPD over TCP/IP for UNIX platforms and Microsoft’s Windows.
- Raw sockets support over selectable TCP/IP port with filters for selected UNIX environment.
- IP SNMP support of MIB-2, proprietary NIC MIB and public and proprietary (private) Printer MIB.
- SNMP traps to alert administrators of printer errors (paper/ribbon out, head up, etc).
- E-mail notification of printer errors to specified addresses. DHCP, BootP, and RARP services supported
The M-Class Mark II printers are available with several Communication Card options. These cards can be equipped in the following configurations:
- Wired and Wireless Ethernet
- Wired Ethernet
A software tool suite designed for data collection applications. Once enabled, the printer can accept input data from peripheral devices such as barcode scanners, weigh scales, and keyboards without the need of a host computer, requesting and sending data to locally resident lookup files or remote databases, enhancing communication capabilities within your system while reducing your hardware investment.
