Warnings, notes and other identifying markings
1.2.1
Warnings
Warnings are presented with three signal words for the different levels of danger.
The signal word DANGER identifies an extraordinarily great and immediate danger which could lead
to serious injury or even death.
The signal word WARNING identifies a possible danger would could lead to serious bodily injury or
even death if sufficient precautions are not taken.
The signal word CAUTION indicates a potentially dangerous situation which could lead to moderate or
light bodily injury or damage to property.
Warnings are always identified with a warning symbol (yellow triangle) and the signal word and specify
the source of the danger, possible consequences and measures for avoiding the danger.
Here’s an example:
DANGER!

A detailed product description with all the technical data can be found in the “Configuration Instructions
for the BP-PR PLUS series“.
2.1
Intended use
• The transfer printer is a state-of-the-art device which complies with the recognized safety-related
rules and regulations. Despite this, a danger to life and limb of the user or third parties could arise
and the transfer printer or other property could be damaged while operating the device.
• The transfer printer may only be used while in proper working order and for the intended purpose.
Users must be safe, aware of potential dangers and must comply with the operating instructions!
Faults, in particular those which affect safety, must be remedied immediately.
• The transfer printer is solely intended to print suitable media which have been approved by the manufacturer. Any other or additional use is not intended. The manufacturer/supplier is not liable for damage resulting from misuse. Any misuse is at your own risk.
• Intended use includes heeding the operating instructions, including the maintenance recommendations/regulations specified by the manufacturer.
2.2
Safety notes
• The transfer printer is designed for power supply systems from 100 V AC to 240 V AC. Connect the
transfer printer only to electrical outlets with a ground contact.
• Couple the transfer printer to devices using extra low voltage only.
• Before making or undoing connections, switch off all devices involved (computer, printer, accessories etc.).
• Operate the transfer printer in a dry environment only and do not get it wet (sprayed water, mist etc.).
• If the transfer printer is operated with the cover open, ensure that clothing, hair, jewelry and similar
personal items do not contact the exposed rotating parts.
• The print mechanism can become hot during printing. Do not touch it during operation and allow it
to cool down before changing the media or before removal or adjustment.

Environmentally-friendly disposal
Used devices contain valuable recyclable materials which should be utilized.
⇒ Dispose of used devices separately from other waste, i.e. via an appropriate collection site.
The modular nature of the transfer printer allows it to easily be disassembled into its component parts
so that the parts can be turned in for recycling.
The PCB of the transfer printer has a lithium battery.
⇒ Dispose of this battery in a collection container for old batteries at the store or with the public waste
disposal authority.

Device types
5.1
Standard device
The standard device is used for printing labels or continuous media on rolls or fanfolded media.
In Tear-Off mode, labels are removed by hand.
The labels can be cut off automatically with the 'cutter' accessory. For details, see the Operating Instructions for the 'cutter' accessory.
The labels can be wound up with the 'external rewinder' accessory. For details, see the Operating
Instructions for the 'external rewinder' accessory.
Because there is no internal rewinder, automatic peeling off of the labels from the carrier medium (PeelOff mode) and internal rewinding are not possible.
5.2
Peel-off device version
The peel-off device version is capable of Peel-Off mode and thus has an internal rewinder and a pulling
system comprised of a rewind assist roller and a locking system. Printing on labels or continuous media
from rolls or fanfolded media is possible.
Operation in Tear-Off mode and with the 'cutter' or 'external rewinder' accessory is possible by installing
the tear-off plate (see ”6.6” on page 24), as with the standard device.
In Peel-Off mode, the label is peeled off the liner after printing. The label can be removed by hand with
the peel-off sensor (accessory). Label removal can also occur automatically via the applicator (accessory). The liner is rolled up via the internal rewinder.
For use in Internal Rewind mode remove the locking system (see ”6.7” on page 25) and replace the
dispense plate with a rewind guide plate (see ”6.6” on page 24).

Printing
CAUTION!
The printhead can be damaged if handled improperly!
⇒ Do not touch the bottom of the printhead with your fingers or sharp objects.
⇒ Ensure that the labels are clean.
⇒ Ensure smooth label surfaces. Raw labels are like emery and reduce the service life of the
printhead.
⇒ Print at the lowest possible printhead temperature.
7.1
Synchronization
The printer is ready for operation when all connections have been made, the labels and, if necessary the
transfer ribbon, have been loaded and the printhead is locked. For details on printer configuration, see
the “Configuration Instructions“.
After loading the label medium, synchronization is necessary. During synchronization, the printer automatically determines the length of the loaded labels and sets label advancement accordingly.
1. Press the feed button to start synchronization.
2. Remove empty labels after synchronization.
The printer is synchronized with the loaded label medium.
Synchronization is not necessary if the printhead was not opened between different print jobs, even if
the printer was switched off.
7.2
Tear-Off mode
In Tear-Off mode, labels or continuous media are printed. After printing, the label strip is separated by
hand. The transfer printer is equipped with a tear-off plate for this.
Optionally, the label can be cut off or label strips can be wound up externally.
7.3
Peel-Off mode
In Peel-Off mode, the labels are automatically peeled off the carrier medium after printing and presented
for removal. The transfer printer is equipped with a dispense plate and one of the following accessory
devices for this: peel-off sensor (PS6 or PS8), peel-off adapter (PS5) or applicator (A1000). The carrier
medium is wound up inside the printer.
7.4
Internal rewinding
The labels are wound up internally after printing with the carrier medium for later use. The transfer printer
is equipped with a rewind guide plate for this.
