Printer Software

Network Connect

On the plant floor, being “on-time”, every time is of utmost importance. Integrating printing can be cumbersome, inefficient and expensive, especially if the printers connect through the enterprise network. Zebra’s Network Connect printer software for Print DNA printers cuts the cost, complexity and time needed to integrate a printing solution with your Rockwell® PLC.

Network Connect Benefits

Zebra’s ODVA™-certified printer option provides the full Ethernet/IP protocol support needed to connect a printer directly to a Rockwell PLC, without the need for a converter box. Our “Add-On-Profile” makes it simple to create solutions using Rockwell's Studio 5000® development environment, including both print template filling and printer status checking. This unique solution reduces the time it takes for developers to integrate a Zebra printer.
