Markem-Imaje Launches New Remote User Interface for the SmartDate X30 Thermal Transfer Overprinter
Markem-Imaje, the global provider of end-to-end supply chain solutions and industrial marking and coding systems, has released a new remote user interface (RUI) for the SmartDateÒ X30 thermal transfer overprinter (TTO).
The optional RUI is ideal for production lines which require a broader suite of functions including password protection, front-end uniformity with its full range of Markem-Imaje solutions and, web user interface (web UI) or virtual network computing (VNC) integration with OEM packaging machines.
Offering an advanced range of functions, the new SmartDate X30 RUI reportedly reduces downtime, waste and product recalls by minimizing human error. This is achieved through multiple functions including a simple print preview and print adjust functionality, enabling dead dot detection which is viewable and adjustable with a single click. The simple online password configuration facilitates the creation of multiple, customizable profiles allowing the operator to immediately access their required functions and begin operating in just a few clicks.
The new RUI offers operators the ability to monitor up to five production metrics, which can be selected from a total of 9 options, directly on the home screen. With an external device plug-in capability there is an option to use a keyboard, barcode scanner and USB memory stick.
The new RUI for the SmartDate X30 is provided with a bracket and can be easily mounted anywhere on the machine. Plus, the simple installation also includes web UI or vertical network computing integration with OEM packaging machines.
“Our new RUI is a fantastic option for customers who require an enhanced range of solutions from their user interface,” said Gary Bolton, TTO product marketing manager, Markem-Imaje. “This simple to install RUI provides immediate benefits, helping to minimize human error and maximize uptime. Plus, with front-end familiarity with other Markem-Imaje products it contributes to a seamless end-to-end solution.”
The SmartDate X30 handheld terminal continues to be available for customers who require a simpler user interface.
