  • High-resolution large character and bar code printing eliminates the need for pre-printed cartons
  • Windows CE ®-based intuitive, graphical, icon-based interface
  • Line speeds up to 200 feet per minute (61 m/min.)
  • Print resolutions up to 300 x 150 dpi in real world environments
  • Off-line message creation/transfer and multiple security levels eliminate errors
The Marsh Encore system combines high resolution printing with a highly advanced user interface, making message creation quick, easy and practically error-free. The Marsh Encore printer also delivers print resolutions up to 300 x 150 dpi, providing you the flexibility of on-line coding with pre-printed quality.

A familiar operating system that can also run on a PC
The Marsh Encore controller software is designed for the Windows CE® operating system. The controller software can be readily run from a remote PC, allowing codes to be created off-line and then downloaded to single or multiple controllers via Ethernet or RS-232 connections. You can also create a centralized database of messages from which codes and graphics can be accessed and stored. To reduce message selection errors, you can connect a bar code scanner to enter variable data or load messages.

High-resolution printing eliminates the need for pre-printed cartons
The Marsh Encore system supports two printheads — EN120 (.8", 20mm) and the EN300 (2", 51mm) — to deliver on-line printing of graphics bar codes and True Type® fonts with character heights from 1/16" (1.5mm) to 2" (51mm) for full generic case coding, eliminating the need for pre-printed cartons or providing flexibility of dynamic printing of blank shippers.

Intuitive, graphical, icon-based interface with WYSIWYG image editor
With the Marsh Encore controller interface, message creation is fast and easy to learn. Drag-and-drop editing tools with cut and paste features and group alignment make creating messages a snap. The WYSIWYG image editor minimizes the risk of error.

Advanced options allow users to customize date and time formats, as well as alpha and shift codes, making the system flexible enough to address any customer specific requirements.

The power to perform
The Marsh Encore system represents the next level in Videojet's printing technology through the use of an advanced user interface with full resolution image control and increased processing power. The Encore system is extremely versatile, and it’s processing power provides fast message changeover, even when using external devices to initiate message call-ups.
