The implementation of the correct device driver into the host computer system will allow the computer user to benefit from the manufacturer set printing speed that can reach up to four inches per second. This is relatively slower compared to other I-class printers. The reason for this is the higher printing resolution delivered by the Datamax I-4604 which is set by the manufacturer at 600 dots per inch. The actual printing mechanism can allow the computer user to print on a media that has a maximum width of 4.16 inches and a variable length of any where from 0.25 to 55 inches. In order to enhance its printing capability and to allow it to handle more simultaneous print job requests it is fitted with a 2 MB flash memory that can be supported by a 16 MB SDRAM memory module. As with other I-class printers this particular hardware component also makes use of direct thermal printing with an optional functionality to implement thermal transfer. Both printing features can be ably supported by the correct device driver.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The revolving media hubs that are appropriate to the deployment of the Datamax I-4604 are the standard 3 and 1.5 inch hubs with an optional support for the 40 mm hub. The device driver allows the computer user to manufacture a number of bar codes that comply to industry standards like the Code 3 of 9, UPC-A, Interleaved 2 of 5, Code 128, and Datamatrix among others. In terms of font support, the device driver supports the ten resident alphanumeric fonts that include both OCR-A and OCR-B variants. An additional support module is extended to allow the implementation of downloadable font types like AGFA Intellifont, True-Type, and Bitmap. All supported font types can be expanded vertically as well as horizontally up to 24 times its original size. For graphics support, it can be printer in four varying directions. The device driver allows the hardware component to recognize the printing of IMG, PCX, and BMP image file types. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Datamax I-4604 errors before installing any driver updates.
