manual abstract

At power up or in an idle condition, this value should be in the range of 060 to 065. A reading of 175 is high and could decrease the life of the printhead. An average amount of printing will give readings that range from 070 to 120. Pot -this reading comes from the darkness potentiometer located on the front panel board. It will vary from 000 (darkest) to 255 (lightest). Adjust this value for a midrange value of 128. TOFA -(Top of Form Adjustment) determines where the first position of print begins on the label. RIBN -this value indicates the operation of the ribbon mechanism, this value will vary. RWND -this value indicates the operation of the internal rewind mechanism, this value will vary. Counter Information -is the values and dates of the absolute and resettable counters. Memory Configuration - lists the current size of the 'Internal Module' RAM in 4K byte blocks, and the 'Scalable Fonts' current cache setup for scalable font calculations. Using Your Printer 37 3.3.3 Character Dump Mode After printing the configuration test labels, the Printer will automatically enter the Character Dump Mode. This mode allows the user to input strings of data and compare them with the output data from the Printer. This label can readily uncover a buffer overflow problem identified by large gaps of data in the character string.

Continue to hold the buttons until the Ribbon Media LED illuminates a second time. The Printer will now be set to the 'Factory Defaults'. 3.5 Fuse Replacement The Printer uses a 2.0 amp/250V slo-blo fuse, which is located within the voltage selection switch, just below the power switch. · Turn off the Printer and remove the AC power cord. · Insert a flat-bladed screwdriver in the release slot and push out the fuse holder/voltage selector switch. · Replace the fuse with the same type and rating, (250volts, 2Amp, slo-blo).

Printing Labels 4.0 Introduction This chapter explains how to generate labels using several different methods, and how to print different bar codes. An optional Internal Batch Cartridge is available for generating label formats using the Printer as a stand-alone device. A VT 100 or LINK MCII compatible CRT is required if the optional Internal Batch Cartridge is used to generate labels. The Internal Batch Cartridge Program works much like a PC compatible software package, but uses internal batch modules instead of a hard or floppy disk drive to store and retrieve label formats. Labels can also be generated using RS-232 to a host computer or by using a PC with a compatible labeling software package. This chapter explains some of the basic programming commands that are required when writing programs to generate label formats. NOTE: The programming information contained in this manual is for reference purposes only. Refer to the Programmer's Manual for detailed descriptions and programming formats. Printing Labels 41 4.1 Programming Commands To prompt the Printer for a command sequence, the Printer must first receive a special character called an “attention getter”, which informs the Printer that it is about to receive a command and the type of command it will be. Immediate Commands, System Level Commands, and Font Loading Commands each have their own attention getter. The attention getter character is followed by a "command character" that tells the Printer what action to take. ASCII Char.
