Printer: Any printer with or without a respective network interface can be connected to the uniFLOW Server.
Printers without network connections, such as USB or LPT connections, can also be "virtually"
attached to the microMIND V2 via the uniFLOW Server.
MiCard (V1, V2, V3 and all future versions / Magnetic Reader)
MiCard PLUS (since firmware V2.0.5)
The microMIND V2 provides the possibility to add a MiCard reader or a MiCard PLUS
reader as a secure print solution to any printer. This allows you to turn your normal
office printer into a cost effective secure print solution. It does not matter if this
printer is a USB, a network printer or a printer with a different connection. As long as
the respective printer is available and configurable in uniFLOW, a microMIND V2 can
be used in conjunction with the printer.
The microMIND V2 supports all MiCard (V1, V2, V3 and all future versions / Magnetic
Reader) and MiCard PLUS readers (since firmware V2.0.5).
The microMIND V2 is designed to add the Secure Print feature to single function
printers, regardless of whether they are Canon devices or not. Each device from each
vendor is supported. It does not matter if your printer provides an Ethernet TCP/IP
network, WLAN, USB or other connection. Thus, NT-ware provides an easy and cost
effective solution to include almost all printers and install them in uniFLOW as a secure
However, an Ethernet TCP/IP network connection is required for the microMIND V2.
The microMIND V2 has a built-in network switch, allowing it to connect the printer to
the network through the microMIND V2. This can be required for network printers.
Note that the microMIND V2 does not have to be attached to the printer. It only
transfers the ID data, reads from the users ID card, to the uniFLOW Server and thus
tells the uniFLOW Server to release the print jobs for this user.
Furthermore the microMIND V2 supports copy accounting. In order to allow for
accounting of copy costs on an MFD, the user interface of the device needs to be
locked until a user has been identified at the MFP. After identification the user
interface opens up, the user starts copying, and the costs can be assigned to the user,
a user group, or a cost center.
To lock the interface you need to connect a cable to the relevant machine and make
the required settings in the service mode of the MFP.
