Summa S Class Wireless™ Introduced
Wireless upgrade option now available
on all new Summa S Class(*) series vinyl cutters
Summa today announced wireless data communication capability
for its S Class series contour cutting plotters. Summa’s new
S Class(*) Wireless uses Wi-Fi compatible protocol
connectivity and incorporates built in on-board hardware circuitry,
unlike semi reliable off the shelf add-on wireless peripherals
offered by some companies.
S Class Wireless is a network connection which can be easily
integrated into a company’s LAN (local area network) or WLAN
(wireless local area network) network using Access Point (wireless
router). When no network environment is available a peer-to-peer
connection can also be achieved using Ad-Hoc connectivity. S
Class Wireless also supports WEP and WPA, standard encryption
methods for secure connections and data transfer in existing
“Summa S Class Customers can now enjoy the wireless flexibility
and increased workflow productivity to output jobs from one
computer to multiple S Class cutters, or output from several
computers to a single S Class Cutter”, states Kristof Tilleman,
Summa Engineering Project Manager. With S Class Wireless Summa
delivers yet another amazing innovation with the industry’s
first wireless solution for friction driven drum cutters. And,
equipment can be moved anywhere within 30 meters of the network.
Software support for S Class Wireless is available in Summa’s
WinPlot cutting program (version 6.9 or later), MacSign Lite
& MacSign 9, as well as other popular sign making programs.
The S Class Wireless intelligent firmware also displays a browser
accessible web page allowing any connected user to change cutter
configuration settings from either Mac or PC operating systems.
S Class Wireless is a factory upgrade option now available on
all new Summa S Class vinyl cutting plotters. Contact an authorized
Summa Dealer for pricing and availability.
