Configuring one Locally and One Centrally Connected Printer
This is a typical configuration for a monitor connected to one local and one central printer.
To configure the local printer, in the Setup Printers menu, select the first printer in the list and
make sure that Port is set to Local 1. Set Printer Status to Enabled. Change the printer
name if required and configure the correct settings for the locally connected printer as described above.
To configure the central printer, in the Setup Printers menu, select the third printer in the list

Configuring a Monitor to Capture Alarm Events in the Print Database during
You may want to use this feature on transport monitors which have no recorder.
Under Databases > Database Config, make sure that Print Database is set to Small
or Large. Any change must be confirmed to take effect. This will cause the monitor to reboot.
Under Alarms > Alarm Recording, select all alarms that should trigger a capture (eg HR Red
Only, PVC Red Only, etc.).
Under Recordings > Setup Recordings, select Alarm, and change the Recorder to
Printer. This causes any alarm recording to be sent as a Realtime Report to a connected printer. If
during transport no printer is connected to the monitor, the Realtime Report will be stored in the
print database (if configured appropriately, see next steps)
Under Reports > Setup Reports, select Realtime Rep as the Report.
a. Configure the Target Device to either Unspecified (factory default) or Database.
b. Configure the Report Size to either Universal or Unspecified. In both cases, the report will be
printed on a printer which has either US Letter or A4 format.
Under Reports > Setup Printers, select Database as the Printer, and configure the
Paper Size to either Letter or A4, depending on your prefered paper format.
Under Reports, select AutoPrint Dbs and set it to the desired behavior. For details, refer to
"Other Report Settings Configuration Implications" on page 121.
Store the changes.
