Mobile devices are essential to capture live data from your shop floor with Autodesk Prodsmart’s application. Label printers allow you to make this process faster for your workers by allowing them to skip manual data insertion by reading labels printed through Autodesk Prodsmart, these two are significant components of data entry.


For smooth use of our mobile application and printing labels, there are some recommendations regarding devices.


Mobile

Label Printers

Prodsmart supports all zebra printers. To print labels through a mobile device the printer needs to be connected to a computer via wifi or via cable.

The following ones are currently being used by our customers:

  • Zebra ZD410-203dpi ZPL - cheapest one with wi-fi connection

  • Zebra ZD620-203dpi ZPL

  • Zebra GX430T

  • Zebra ZT410 - for larger labels and more frequent use

If the printing of labels is done at a computer, the printer does not need to have wifi connectivity as it will be connected to the computer already.

We have some articles and expertise in setting them up and creating labels:

Scanners

We recommend ScanAvenger's scanners, available in this website.

  • 1D models (connectable via USB cable, Dongle or Bluetooth)

  • 1D + 2D models (connectable via USB cable, Dongle or Bluetooth)

For US/Canada/Australia customers, you can use the promocode "Prodsmart10" which will give you a 10% discount in several scanners.
