Mutoh America's ValueJet Status Monitor
Mutoh America (www.mutoh.com) recently added the ValueJet Status Monitor (VSM) to its product portfolio. The company says VSM is a sophisticated software application, offered free to Mutoh customers, that is used to monitor the health and status of Mutoh ValueJet printers, including monitoring ink levels, heater settings, firmware updates, color output, and more. VSM includes an e-mail notification system to alert the operator to several pre-programmed messages, including printer status, low ink, media end, and more. Through internet access, the operator can check the status of the ink level and heater temperatures from any PC on which VSM software is installed. The system is currently available on the VJ-1324, 1624, and 1608HS printers. Mutoh says new VSM-capable printers and a smart-phone remote-access app are in the works.
