Centralized Management of
Datamax Printers
DMXNet Manager provides a graphical user interface from which you can manage all of your
network connected Datamax printers. From initial deployment configuration to ongoing
supervision and control, use DMXNet Manager for the lifetime management of your network of
Datamax printers.
Whether deploying or managing your printers, DMXNet Manager's centralized, remote control of
your enterprisewide distributed printers saves you significant time and lowers your costs. And
when you reduce printer downtime with DMXNet Manager, you will also reduce operations
downtime and related loss of productivity costs.
Configuration Made Easy, Remotely
From hardware, system, front panel, and printer control settings to media, communications,
GPIO and auxiliary settings, DMXNet Manager provides remote configuration for easy printer
initialization and updates. You will also benefit from DMXNet Manager's printer duplication
capability and configuration profiles to configure like printers quickly.

Control Performed Proactively
Supplies management, supplies control, and printer control combine to give you proactive
management of your printer network. In addition to standard printer controls, such as pause
printer and form feed, DMXNet Manager's printer controls include a communications feature to
download firmware, fonts, graphics, labels, profiles, MCL printer applications, lookup files, and
DPL files to your Datamax printers. What's more, a scripting utility allows you to perform
identical procedures, such as downloading new firmware or a configuration profile, automatically
on many or all printers across your printer network.

DMXNet Manager - Product Specifications
Supervision Done AtaGlance
Status indicators and a warning system included in DMXNet Manager's supervision mode help you keep your printers operating at peak
performance. Colorcoded indicators are updated regularly to give you full visibility of the connection status, printer status, and media status
of each printer on your network.
Supply warnings and maintenance warnings further simplify your printer supervision effort. Warnings notify you of when a supply, such as a label roll
or printer ribbon, is running low so you can replace itbefore it runs out and affects your organization's operations. Warnings also notify you of when,
for example, a printer head replacement is due on a printer so an administrator can schedule printer maintenance that does not impact your operations.
Multiple views give you an ataglance global view of your entire printer network from a single desktop PC. If an issue develops
with a printer, you can obtain more detailed information about the matter for troubleshooting, problem isolation, and problem
resolution.
If you have several network administrators and helpdesk technicians concerned with your organization's printers, multiple copies
of DMXNet Manager can run on the same network giving each individual a view of the entire enterprise's printers.
