  • 32 MB on board Flash memory - for storing additional data: fonts, logos, signatures, symbols and form overlays
Many organizations now wish to print barcodes to speed-up data entry & ensure data integrity, often to automate the workflow process. Normally this involves the expense & inconvenience of having to purchase additional specialist thermal barcode label printers. Some laser printer/MFD manufacturers may have a basic 'bespoke' barcode printing solution, but this normally only works on a limited range of their printer models.

Key Challenges

  • Most standard printers and MFDs lack the capability to print barcodes
  • Barcode printing solutions often require major application changes
  • Normally an 'encoding' algorithm has to be added to the application software in order for the correct barcode to print
  • Most printer 'plug-in' solutions require an external 'dongle' to be fitted to each printer to enable barcoding
  • Most barcode printing solutions aren't compatible with ERP software such as SAP or with the industry standard BarDIMM
The BarSTORM unit allows easy, intelligent auto barcode printing on ANY Xerox device, thus removing the expense of purchasing specialist thermal barcode printers.
  • Each BarSTORM unit supports up to 54 devices so you don't need to have a unit physically attached to each printer
  • BarSTORM is compatible with ANY Xerox PCL printer or MFD - no need for a different solution for various Xerox devices
  • BarSTORM is an intelligent solution; it encodes the barcode data 'on the fly' and automatically generates check sums and check digits
  • BarSTORM removes the need to add encoding algorithms to the application software - saving expensive development costs
  • BarSTORM contains 'BarDIMM inside' technology so it is 100% compatible with ERP software such as SAP and with existing BarDIMM installations
