The Datamax printer now drives the application instead of the printer relying on instructions from a host device, such as a computer. This technically advanced solution provides the ability to easily design custom applications that run only from a Datamax printer.
The Datamax printer holds the power of intelligence, meaning the printer is in control, which is ideal for:
- Standalone applications.
- Receiving or sending real-time data.
- Connecting to ERP systems (such as SAP) or databases (such as Oracle, FoxPro, Act, Access, Excel, anything that is Microsoft ODBC compliant).
- Connecting and controlling secondary devices, such as another printer, weight scale, scanner, PDA, keyboard/pad or modem.
- Store database information required for large batch printing jobs.
The Datamax I-4210 and the M-4208 are the entry-level printers for MCL applications. After developing an application on an MCL development computer the application project is uploaded to the printer where it is hosted as a self-sufficient application.
The development computer is no longer necessary for the application to run and the MCL-enabled printer can interact with printer- resident look-up tables as well as wired and wirelessly connected remote ERP systems or other host databases. When you need a more compact data collection solution to keep your business in business, move up to Datamax with MCL.
