Direct programming with J-Script The printer language is easy to understand and simple to integrate into your host system. Variable data is linked with host applications. Label design, graphic data and fonts are recorded on the CompactFlash card. The host computer sends only variable data to the printer.

As a Silver Level partner in SAP‘s Printer Vendor Program, cab has access to the SAP development area for optimum printer support in SAP environments. * SAP and R/3 are registered trademarks of SAP AG. abc – Basic Compiler As an integrated element of the firmware, the Basic Compiler enables the printer to process data via BASIC programming before it is sent for print editing. This makes it possible for external printer languages to be replaced or data from other systems, e. g. a PLC or balance, to be transferred so information can be printed in different label formats. Example of use: Connection to a balance Database Connector In stand-alone mode with additional network connection, the Database Connector enables stand-alone printers to access data directly from a central SQL-compatible database and to print it as a label. Data can also be written back to the database or changed during the printing process. Printer monitoring with Intranet and Internet Using standard programs such as the web browser or FTP clients, the integrated HTTP and FTP server enables print monitoring, configuration, firmware updates and memory card administration. Status, warning and error messages are sent to administrators or users as e-mails or SNMP datagrams via SNMP and SMTP clients. A time server is used to synchronize the time and date. Administration Network Manager The cab Network Manager enables the user to control multiple printers across a network simultaneously. It supports monitoring, configuration, firmware updates, memory card administration, file synchroniza tion and PIN administration centrally. cab | 4 Create Transfer labels with replace file software into SAPScript Exchange of variable data with SAPScript and printout Printer driver.
