Safety instructions
Read the following instructions carefully before starting up the SpeedMarking-Laser.
Observe the warnings and notices on the
SpeedMarking-Laser at all times.
• Never use damaged or worn out power
cables.
• Connect the device to the mains only
with cable described in this guide.
• Avoid the usage of multiple cables.
• The mains voltage must correspond to
the system voltage given on the SpeedMarking-Laser type plate.
• Connect the network cable directly
(never via an extension cable) to the
power socket.
• Connect the device to a properly earthed
and fused socket outlet only. Do not use
a socket outlet already being used by
devices that are turned on and off at
regular intervals, such as photocopiers
or ventilators.
• Keep the mains cable undamaged and
keep it in its original state. Do not place
any heavy objects on it. Do not pull at it
with force and do not bend it more than
necessary. A disregard of these instructions can lead to electrocution or fire.
• Do not connect the SpeedMarking-Laser
to either a switched or a timer-controlled
socket outlet.
• Place the device close to an accessible
power socket in order to be able to pull
the mains plug in case of an emergency.
Do not use the computer system close to
potential electromagnetic disturbance
fields such as loudspeakers or base transceiver stations for mobile telephones.
If you connect the SpeedMarking-Laser to
the power supply via an extension cable,
ensure that the total nominal current of all
of the devices connected to the extension
cable does not exceed the capacity for that
extension cable. In addition, you should
ensure that the total nominal current of all
the devices plugged into the wall-mounted
socket outlet does not exceed the ampere
rating for that socket outlet.
Do not carry out repairs to the device yourself.

• Never connect or disconnect the mains
plug to the power socket with wet hands.
There is a risk of electrocution.
Disconnect the SpeedMarking-Laser and
contact a qualified service engineer if any
of the following occurs:
• The power cord or plug are worn or damaged.
• A fluid has penetrated into the SpeedMarking-Laser.
• The SpeedMarking-Laser is allowed to
fall or the enclosure is damaged.
• The SpeedMarking-Laser does not operate normally or the standard of performance varies noticeably.
Keep any moisture or dust off the device.
Otherwise, there is the danger of fire or
electrocution.
5658600000/00/05.07
Safety instructions
• Do not spill any fluids into the SpeedMarking-Laser.
• Place the device onto a solid, flat surface. Otherwise, it could fall down and
lead to possible danger to personnel.
• For installation in limited space, make
sure that there is sufficient ventilation for
the device.
• Do not block or cover openings of the
SpeedMarking-Laser.
• Do not insert any objects into these
openings.
This device is not to be operated without supervision.
The internally-emitting radiation is kept inside the printer by the protective housing
and the external cover. The laser beam
cannot emit from the device during operation.
The printer cannot be used or maintained if
the protective cover is taken off the laser or
scanner unit. The reflective beam is invisible and can damage the eyes.

Printing preparation
Selection of media
4.1
Printing of adhesive backing
markers
The Weidmüller adhesive-backing device
markers ESG, SM and CC are recognizable by their brown paper material. Their
suitability for printing in the SpeedMarkingLaser is only limited.
Please make sure that each used type of
marker has been tested and approved by
the user, by checking for any issues with
the adhesive part of the marker. In case
adhesive may leak from the marker, do not
use it.
CAUTION
Observe the following for the automatic labelling of the adhesive-backing markers.
Only markers of the Weidmüller MultiCard line with a
height of 9 mm or less can be printed with the
SpeedMarking-Laser.
You can find more information in chapter
4.1 "Printing of adhesive backing markers".
For usage of SF MultiCard strips, please
observe the chapter 3.5 "Switch for printing
SF markers".
CAUTION
It is only allowed to feed entire MultCard
strips into the printer.
Damaged or incomplete MultiCard strips
can damage the device.
As a rule, soiled or smudgy MultiCard
strips should not be used.
Each MultiCard can only be used once.
The impairment of the interaction area as
well as the soiling of the roller can lead to
blotchy printing of the markers and to
damaging the device.
It is necessary to clean the Corona unit if
printing 5 MultiCards or more.
• The adhesive backing of the markers leave adhesive remnants on the Corona unit of the printer.
• A roller contaminated by glue residues of the special-toner cartridge cannot be cleaned and must
therefore be changed.
The cleaning of the Corona unit is described under "Cleaning of the SpeedMarking-Laser" in chapter 5.4 "Printer maintenance".

Stopping a printing job
The SpeedMarking-Laser is equipped with a manual
feed. This is done as follows.
A printing job can be stopped by the software application, printer queue or by pressing the button Job
Cancel.
If the printer has not started a printing job, try to stop
it first using the software application.
If the printing job is in the printing queue or in the
printing spooler, try to delete the printing job there.
Printing with manual feeding
1 The MultiCard markers will be fed with the project
marking surface into the entry (see also Figure
17 “Manual feeding”).
2 The marker is inserted until it firmly touches the
stop at the end.
If the printing job is printing, press the button Job
Cancel. The printer finishes the MultiCard strips that
are already in the printer storage and deletes the
rest of the printing job.
If the status LEDs light up one after the other after
the printing job has been cancelled, the computer
sends the printing job nevertheless to the printer.
Delete the printing job from the printer queue or wait
until the printer has finished sending the data.
The printer switches into the ready mode (ready
LED lights up).

Printer tips and maintenance
This chapter includes suggestions how high quality
and low consumption can be reached at the same
time. Moreover, special maintenance jobs for toner
cartridge and printer are described here.
5.3
Maintenance of specialtoner cartridge
5.3.1
Lifespan of special-toner cartridges
5.1
In this chapter, the described settings concerning
the printing quality can be modified via the software
program of the Windows printer drivers.
The lifespan of a special-toner cartridge depends on
the amount of toner being used for printing jobs. If
mainly text is printed, the special-toner cartridge
lasts for 1500 MultiCard strips with a coverage of
5%.
The printing must always be done with the best quality and the highest resolution.
It is taken for granted that "Highest quality" and a
printing density of "3" (standard setting) is set.
5.2
Improvement of printing
You can find more general information
concerning these settings and adjustments
on the help screens of the software.
5.3.2
Extend the lifespan of the
special-toner cartridge
Take the special-toner cartridge out of the packaging
just before installation. The period of storage of an
unopened special-toner cartridge is approximately
2.5 years. In contrast, the period of storage of an
opened special-toner cartridge is 6 months.
If light areas appear on the printout, then toner is
missing. You can improve the printing quality temporarily by re-distributing the toner in the cartridge.
1 Finish the current print job before changing the
toner cartridge.
2 Open the cover of the SpeedMarking-Laser.
Storage of special-toner cartridge
CAUTION
To avoid any damages, the toner cartridge
should only be exposed to the sunlight for
a few minutes.
3 Take the toner cartridge out of the SpeedMarking-Laser.
4 Sway (never shake) the toner cartridge back and
forth multiple times in order to distribute the toner
again. Do not position the toner cartridge upside
down.
5 Insert the toner cartridge again into the SpeedMarking-Laser.
6 Close the cover.
If the printout remains pale, change the
toner cartridge.
If any toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off
by means of a dry cloth. Wash it subsequently with cold water.

Printer maintenance
Cleaning of the SpeedMarking-Laser
3 With a dry and lint-free cloth, remove any dust,
dirt, toner and possible adhesive elements out of
the printing area.
To maintain high printing quality, clean the SpeedMarking-Laser each time after changing the special
toner cartridge. The cleaning also has to be done if
there are problems with the printing quality. In this
regard, observe the following instructions:
Keep the SpeedMarking-Laser free of dust or any
dirt particles.
Clean the outside of the housing with a slightly moist
cloth.
CAUTION
Do not use any ammonia-containing cleaning agents on or in the vicinity of the
SpeedMarking-Laser.
• Over time, small dust particles and toner residues
accumulate in the Speed-Marking-Laser. This can
lead to white strips on the printout. After cleaning,
you will get a normal printing result.

i 0.09) Ohm.
Remedy for jamming
Occasionally, jamming of MultiCards can occur during a printout.
Jamming can occur in the following areas:
• Input area
• Toner cartridge area
• Output area
Normally, jamming occurs in the following cases:
• A MultiCard strip has not been loaded or transported properly.
• The cover was opened during printing.
• In the input area was a deficient or an incomplete
MultiCard strip.
Remove the accumulated MultiCard and
follow the instructions on the following
pages. If it is not clear where the problem

General troubleshooting
Empty, deficient or incomplete pages and disruption of the printing operation
Pages have been printed but are blank.
• The sealing band of the special-toner cartridge has
not possibly been removed.
Pages have been printed, but the printing is deficient, pages have only been partially printed or the
printing is overlapping.
• Make sure that the software application uses the
right printer driver.
• The data file sent to the printer is incorrect. Try to
print another file in order to see whether this one is
printed correctly.
• Exchange the printer cable with one that you know
is functioning. This tells you whether the printer
cable is faulty.
Font problems
The printing job contains the wrong font types or the
printing job has been formatted wrongly.
• Make sure that the software application uses the
right printer driver.
• The printer does not possess this font type. The
font type has to be downloaded via the software
application.
• It is possible that font is not available on the printer
and has been replaced by the software application
with another font.
