Your meter has an internal modem with an external interface to the Internet via Constant Connection. This allows data communications with Pitney Bowes support services, as well as external mail/parcel carriers.
Connect your DM500™ or DM550™ to Pitney Bowes to perform the following tasks:
- Postage by Phone refills
- Remote postage inspections
- Intelillink® Package Services - software that creates an electronic manifest, assigns an item number which can be tracked via Canada Post’s online tool
- Download graphic images (ads, inscriptions)
- Download rate change and software updates
