Note: Starting with firmware version 1.8 it is possible to remotely configure ThinPrint Hubs or Personal Printing Release Stations using the (on premises installed) Stratodesk NoTouch Center. As of firmware version 1.16 you can also manage them via the cloud-based ezeep Blue portal; to do so, log in to ezeep Blue and assign the Hubs in question to your organization there.
You will require the following hardware:
- a server for the Personal Printing installation
- Personal Printing Release Station (from firmware version 1.1)
- card reader with a USB port (its type depends on the tokens or cards to be used)
- NFC token or card (Mifare, FeliCa etc.)
- Connect all the devices, as shown in the illustration. The Release Station is connected to the network and located close by to the printer. The printer can either be connected to the network or, via USB, directly to the Release Station.
- A Release Station supports up to four printers, but it needs a card reader per printer. The supplied, contactless card reader is connected via USB to the Release Station. It is used with NFC cards (e. g. Mifare). The card reader type depends on the tokens or cards to be used.
Configuring server and users
- Proceed as described in the sections setting up target printers and default user PIN and authentication methods.
If the password for logging on to the web console has not been set, then the default is:
The Release Station is used to collect Personal Printing jobs via authentication from a Personal Printing Server.
Note! Always use the Personal Printing Release Station only according to the intended purpose, as described above. Putting the device to other uses may cause malfunctions in the intended operation, as described in this document.
- Only use the Personal Printing Release Station as described in this documentation and according to its intended use. Any improper use, including without being limited hereto, the opening of the casing, expires any and all warranties.
- Install the Release Station within easy reach of a wall outlet.
- Be sure to turn off and remove the power supply unit from the wall outlet before connecting or disconnecting any interface cable to the Release Station. When unplugging the cable, always pull on the plug and not on the cable itself.
- Use shielded and properly grounded interface cables to prevent radio frequency interference.
- Protect the Release Station during thunderstorms by turning it off and disconnecting the power supply unit.
- Do not use the Release Station near water. Never spill liquid of any kind on the Release Station or its power supply. The setup location must not be subject to extreme heat, cold, humidity, or dust. Heat and cold can impair the functionality of the Release Station; humidity and dust can cause the Release Station to fail.
- The operating temperature range is 0–40 °C (32–104 °F or 0–32 °Ré).
- Do not open the power supply. There is a danger of electric shock!
- Do not cover the Release Station, as this can cause it to overheat.
- Never place the device in the bright sun or over a radiator, near a heater, a heating grid or heat register or another heat source, as this can cause it to overheat.
- The Release Station should not be operated in an enclosed space (e.g. cabinet, shelving), unless proper ventilation is provided.
- Ensure the voltage and frequency of the power supply matches your local standard. For details, see Input on the power supply’s model plate.
- Do not operate the Release Station on any mobile unit or other unstable surface, where it may fall and be damaged.
- Do not place any item on the fixed USB power cord, or locate the Release Station where the fixed USB power cord can be stepped on.
- Unless otherwise stated in this documentation, do not attempt to service the Release Station or the power supply yourself. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
- Do not make any modifications to the Release Station which could cause radio frequency interference.
- Maintain the Release Station in a satisfactory state of repair.
- If any of the following conditions occur, unplug the power supply from the wall outlet and refer to qualified service personnel:
- if the fixed power cord is frayed, or the power supply is damaged in any way.
- if liquid has been spilled on the Release Station or on the power supply.
- if the Release Station or the power supply has been exposed to rain or water.
- if the Release Station or the power supply does not operate normally when the operating instructions are followed.
- if the Release Station or the power supply has been dropped or the casing has been damaged.
- Turn off power before cleaning. Only use a dry soft cloth to clean the case. Do not use aggressive polishes or cleaning agents.
