Prodigy MAX Printer


For demanding bar code labeling applications requiring the ultimate in versatility and performance, choose the Prodigy
MAX printer. While other printer manufacturers may offer a limited range of standard configurations, with capabilities
and options you may pay for but never need, Datamax makes each ProdigyTM MAX printer to order. Choose the
features you need and Datamax will custom-configure and ship your printer within a matter of days. If your application requirements change, many options may be field installed to ensure that the ProdigyTM MAX printer will grow with you.
Every ProdigyTM MAX printer features a high powered 32-bit microprocessor to give you more labels in less time -- up to 10 inches per second -- plus a rugged steel cabinet that shields the printer and media, ensuring continuous quality operation, even in the most demanding environments.
