Datamax-O'Neil A Class Mk 2 Print Engines

The new Datamax A-Class Mk 2 family of print engine products are designed to include some of the most innovative features ever found in a print and apply engine. These massive stainless steel workhorses are intended to be an invisible piece of a bigger part of production equipment, facilitating the process of finalizing production through package identification.

The A-Class consists of both 4-inch and 6-inch wide print engines with 203, 300, 400 or 600 dpi resolution available in both right- and left-hand models. The Datamax A-Class, as a stainless steel product, is designed to address the specialized corrosion resistant needs found in applications such as the food processing industry. The A-Class was developed for demanding multi-shift, mission critical applications that require optimal throughput from an easy to operate, highly durable print engine.

The A-Class utilizes the same electronics card cage design as is found in the popular Datamax I-Class. This allows integrators to choose from a selection of connectivity options to be easily inserted into the card cage. Options include the DMXNet II internal Ethernet LAN card, the DMXrfNet II internal 802.11b/g WiFi card, and others.

In addition to a graphical display control panel, the A-Class also includes the Datamax/MCL client which enables truly intelligent applications to be hosted within the A-Class itself. Print and apply integrators and OEMs will appreciate the customization possibilities now available to them through the use of the Datamax A-Class and its MCL application development capabilities.
