The DataFlex Plus is also now fully capable of displaying and printing Arabic language characters. In addition to having full downloadable font support using Windows TrueType fonts, the DataFlex Plus supports user entered text in 19 different languages including Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Turkish. Still available on the new version of DataFlex Plus is the patented direct-drive ribbon technology with no wearable parts, a 1,000-meter ribbon capacity for fewer changes and higher production line efficiency. The bi-directional ribbon drive allows unused ribbon to be recaptured, creating more prints per roll and ensuring high efficiency. Additional features include a simple ribbon cassette for quick changeovers, intuitive 8.4-inch SVGA graphical user interface and color touch screen, and built-in ability to change between intermittent and continuous modes in right-hand or left-hand operation. Serial, Ethernet and USB communications are standard.
