Product Description

Refurbished Datamax M-Class™ M-4206 203 DPI Direct Thermal Label And Barcode Printer

Thermal printing is growing to more vertical market and industry applications, and Datamax is maintaining a leadership position in printer design and performance with the M-Class. The M-Class M-4206 is built on a uni-frame, die-cast aluminum chassis, which increases the printer's durability throughout a lifetime of high performance output. The modular design of the M-4206, unique to Datamax printers, enables options to be installed and removed in the field. Datamax printers offer versatility that is unequalled in the thermal printing industry.

Features & Benefits:

  • The M-Class is the most feature-rich printer available to undertake the desktop/light industrial marketplace with the performance and value needed in these applications.
  • The printer's advanced menu system and sturdy features are the finishing touches in creating the most value-oriented printer for these emerging market users.
  • Datamax also offers DMXConfig, a desktop configuration tool that enables users to retrieve, modify, and update the printer's configuration without entering the printer's menu. The printer settings can be saved and sent to multiple printers if the application demands.
  • Standard connectivity interfaces for the M-Class comprise of an RS-232 serial port, an IEEE 1284 compliant, bi-directional parallel port, and a USB port.
  • While a printer's design and construction is crucial to its durability, the ability to interface with an existing or new system is what allows truly seamless integration into any application.

Support Package

Infocus Support Packages for Plastic Card Printers:


In addition to support supplied by the manufacturer, our Infocus technical team provide a full “hand-holding” service which includes the remote setup of printers and software on up to two computers. We will also assist with remote software training to get you or your staff completely up and running. Moving forward, Infocus will assist with any technical problems for as long as you have the printer and you continue to buy consumables from us (we price match our competitors). Response time from opening a support ticket is usually within 4 hours and no more than 1 working day.  We aim to resolve issues which can be fixed by remote connection within 24 hours (1 working day – weekends and public holidays are excluded).

Under a standard RTB (return to base) warranty: Should your machine become faulty after the first 30 days then you will need to cover the cost of getting the printer back to us for repair.

Full support is provided for software supplied by us. If a problem is found with 3rd party software not supplied by Infocus ID, we may have to refer you to that product’s support team.

Cost: FREE with all printers purchased from Infocus ID. Otherwise the price is £99 + VAT per year.


Available in the UK only:

In addition to the Bronze package, response time from opening a ticket will be much faster and wherever possible we will endeavour to handle any issues instantly. We will aim to resolve your issue completely within 4 working hours and if we cannot do this we will book your printer in for repair and issue a loan unit within 1 working day.

You will receive a loan unit at no extra cost should your machine need to come in for repair. All courier costs will be covered by Infocus for repairs and loan units. A deposit will be required by credit card to receive a loan unit. The deposit will be fully refunded the same day we receive the loan printer back.

*Physical damage to printheads, data and power ports is not included. For continued printhead cover a cleaning cycle will need to be performed on the printer at least every 1000 cards printed. This information is stored digitally in each printer and cannot be disputed. Should a data port be physically damaged (such as a USB port) on the printer’s PCB (usually the mainboard), we will attempt to repair the PCB free of charge. In some occasions though, the PCB may be damaged past repair, in which case we reserve the right to charge for a new PCB.
