NOTCH DISTANCE
“Notch Distance” is the minimum distance (in mm) between the upper edge of ticket
and the notch (see chapter 10).
The numeric value of the distance is made up with the following four parameters
for the setting of three digits (two for the integer part of the number and one for the
decimal part) and of the sign:

Notch Distance [mm x 10] = 1
Notch Distance [mm x 1] = 5
Notch Distance [mm x .1] = 0
NOTE: If the “Notch Position” parameter is disabled, the parameters for the “Notch Distance” are not
printed.
TICKET LOCKING
This parameter enables/disables the block of the paper inside the device where the
ticket is not cut with the cutter, but is presented for the manual tear off by the user:
Disabled D = paper block disabled
Enabled =
paper block enabled
NOTE: If the “Notch Position” parameter is disabled, the parameter is not printed.
PAPEREND BUFFER
CLEAR
TICKET MANAGEMENT
Cleaning mode of the data in receive buffer, if the printing is stopped due to lack of paper:
Disabled D = The data remain in the receive buffer. When the paper runs out, the
printer keeps the remaining data in the receive buffer and prints the
remaining portion of the ticket after that the new paper is loaded.
Enabled = When the paper runs out, all data in the receive buffer are deleted.
This parameter allows the ticket management:
Disabled D = no check
Short Label = it is possible to manage labels with length smaller than the distance
between the notch sensor and the printing line; the device always
performs the alignment to the next ticket and does not execute the
paper recovery after cut even if set by Windows driver. After cut paper
recovery management can be set by Windows driver or by $1C $C1
command.

5. CONFIGURATION
This parameter allows to set the USB port as a virtual serial port:
USB Virtual COM
Disabled D = USB port as a virtual serial disabled
Enabled =
USB port as a virtual serial enabled
NOTE: To use this configuration it is necessary to install an additional driver.
This parameter allows to detect the regular alternation of label and gap, in order to
avoid serious jams due to curling of the roll or peeling of the labels. The printer stops if
the alarm jam occurs.
AutoDetect Jam
Disabled D = automatic detection jam disabled
Enabled =
automatic detection jam enabled
Autoload No Recovery
This parameter, if enabled, does not perform the paper recovery mode after autoload.
Disabled D = performs the paper recovery mode after autoload
Enabled =
does not perform the paper recovery mode after autoload
NOTE: It is possible to use this feature only if the option “Paper Recovery Mode“ is set to “Recovery
at start page“ into the driver properties.

5.5 Hexadecimal dump
This function is used to diagnose the characters received through the communication port; the characters are printed
out both as hexadecimal codes and ASCII codes.
Once the self-test routine has finished, the printer enters Hexadecimal Dump mode. The printer remains in standby
until a key is pressed or characters are received through the communication port. For example, for every 8 characters received, the hexadecimal and corresponding ASCII codes are printed out (if the characters are underlined, the
receive buffer is full). Shown below is an example of a Hexadecimal Dump:

7.11 Specifications for ticket with RFID Tag (for models with RFID reader)
The printer models equiped with RFID reader, manages ticket with RFID Tag. RFID (acronym for Radio Frequency
IDentification) is a technology to identify automatically items using radio waves; this system is based on wireless data
capture from RFID tag using appropriate readers. The RFID tag, or transponder, is made up of :
• the microchip that stores the data (including also a unique serial number written);
• an RFID antenna.
Under the paper guide an RFID transceiver module is mounted, provided with antenna, that allows to send and receive RF data to and from the tag. For this application the ticket dimensions are not binding but for good reading is
important that the tag inside the ticket, after alignment, intersects the antenna area. The following figure shows the
antenna’s area and its position under the paper guide in the RFID printer model.

User manual
7. SPECIFICATIONS
In CUSTOM/POS emulation, it is possible to use TrueType fonts. To be used, a TrueType font must be monospace
type (every character of the font must have the same dimension). The check is made by the printer when the font is
selected.
TrueType fonts will be automatically scaled by the printer in order to obtain the same available width for the embedded fonts (11, 15 and 20 cpi).
The quality of TrueType fonts and the correct positioning into the printable area will result from the font producers and
the font implementation.
The available code tables are : PC437, PC850, PC860, PC863, PC865, PC858, PC866, PC852, WPC1252.
For the correct printing of the code tables, it is necessary that the selected TrueType font contains all the characters
in the tables. Otherwise, the ‘ ’ symbol will be printed instead the missing character.
All commands for printing configuration are usable both with TrueType fonts and with embedded fonts.
It is possible to address the TrueType font respects the UNICODETM standard (see www.unicode.org), by using UTF-8
or UTF-16 encoding.

For further informations to characters representations print directly the Font Test(D).
NOTES:
(A)
A proportional font is a font in which different characters have different pitches (widths).
(B)
A fixed font is the opposite of a proportional font and is a fixed-pitch font.
(C)
The fonts with the same name and dimension contain different characters in different positions from theirs.
(D)
During power-up, if the FORM FEED (FF) key is held down, the printer executes the FONT TEST.
In SVELTA emulation, it is possible to use TrueType fonts. True Type fonts are printable with every angle of rotation
and in bold, reverse, italic and underlined mode.
It is possible to address the TrueType font respects the UNICODETM standard (see www.unicode.org), by using UTF-8
or UTF-16 encoding.
For the correct printing of the code tables, it is necessary that the selected TrueType font contains all the characters
in the tables. Otherwise, the ‘ ’ symbol will be printed instead the missing character.

10 ALIGNMENT
Device is provided with sensors for the use of alignment notch in order to handle:
• roll of tickets with pre-printed fields and a fixed length;
• Fan-Fold module of tickets with pre-printed fields and a fixed length.
The alignment notch may be formed by
• black mark printed on paper (see par.7.6);
• hole between two tickets (see par.7.8);
• gap between two labels (see par.7.7).
All alignment sensors are “reflection” sensors: this kind of sensor emits a band of light and detects the quantity of
light reflected to it.
The presence of the notch is therefore detected by the amount of light that returns to the sensor, considering that the
light is reflected by the white paper and absorbed by the black mark.
To use tickets with holes or labes with gap, it is possible to use the same sensors as “transparence” sensors, coupled
two by two: a beam of light is emitted by the transmitter sensor and the quantity of light which reaches the opposite
receiver sensor is detected.
The presence of the hole/gap is detected evaluating the amount of light that arrives to the opposite sensor, considering that the paper doesn’t allow the beam of light to reach the receiver, whereas a gap or a hole lets the light to reach
the receiver.
The following paragraphs show how to correctly set the configuration parameters of device in order to assure the
alignment.

10.1 Enable alignment
Printer is provided with 2 alignment sensors, placed as follows:
• 1 mobile sensor on the lower flat of printer
• 1 sensor on the upper flat of printer.
To guarantee the alignment, it is necessary to correctly choose the sensor to use for the notch detection depending
on the type of notch and its location on the ticket.
To do this, you must enable the parameter “Notch/B.Mark Position” during the Setup procedure (see cap.5) and set
the correct value of this parameter as described in the following table.

10.2 Calibration
The sensor calibration occurs automatically and consists in adjusting the quantity of light emitted to match the degree
of whiteness of the paper used and the degree of black of the mark printed on paper.
The device automatically performs the self-calibration during the Setup procedure only if the “Notch/B.Mark Position”
parameter is set to a value other than “Disabled” (see cap.5).
When self-calibration starts, the device performs some paper feeds and then it prints the calibration result and the
value of the PWM duty-cicle of the alignment sensor driver so that it can be perform an optimal notch detection:
Autosetting Notch : OK
PWM Duty Cycle : 85.3%
The “Autosetting Notch” parameter indicates the result of the self-calibration procedure; OK will appear if it has been
successful, NOT OK will appear if the procedure has failed.
After the printing of the procedure result, the device offers the execution of the function of paper characterization
“Characterize Paper” and the change of the “Notch/B.Mark Threshold” parameter which represents the detection
threshold of the notch.
Choosing the “Yes” value for the “Characterize Paper” parameter, the device prints a graphic representation (see following figures) of the outgoing voltage of the alignment sensor (expressed as a percentage) and the “Notch/B.Mark
Threshold” value.
This graphic representation is useful to set the most suitable value to assign to the “Notch/B.Mark Threshold” parameter and then to better identify the optimal threshold value which takes into account the variations of the signal and
the small oscillations around zero.
The following figure shows an example of paper with the non-thermal paper printed with black marks: the outgoing
voltage is constant while passing the white paper between two notches and presents a peak at each black mark.
In this case, the optimal value for the “Notch/B.Mark Threshold” parameter is placed about half of the peak.

The following figure shows an example of paper with the non-thermal paper printed with black marks and other graphics (for example, a barcode): the outgoing voltage is constant while passing the white paper between two notches,
presents a peak at each black mark and presents some “noise” at each barcode.
In this case, the optimal value for the “Notch Threshold” parameter is located about halfway between the peak value
and the maximum value of the “noise”.

10. ALIGNMENT
If the maximum value of “noise” read by the sensor is very close to the peak value, it might be difficult to place the
value of the “Notch/B.Mark Threshold” at an intermediate point. In these cases, it is mandatory that the portion of
paper between the point of printing end and the front notch is completely white (no graphics). In this way, the only
next graphic detected by the sensor for alignment after the printing end will be the notch.
10.3 Alignment parameters
The “alignment point” is defined as the position inside the ticket to use for the notch alignment. If you use paper with
perforation (FanFold modules), the alignment point corresponds with the edge of the ticket.
The distance between the notch edge and the alignment point is defined as “Notch Distance”. Referring to the front
of the notch, the value of “Notch Distance” can be positive or negative. If the “Notch Distance” value is set to 0, the
alignment point is set at the beginning of the notch.

10. ALIGNMENT
To set a negative value of the “Notch Distance” parameter is useful in cases where the alignment point refers to the
notch printed on the previous ticket or where the desired cutting line is placed in the middle of the alignment notch (for
example, for paper with holes or gap). In the following images, the value of “Notch Distance” parameter is set to -A.

If the notch is placed on the non-thermal side of paper, the “Notch Distance” value can have a minimum value of -5mm
(negative value) and a maximum of 66mm. This maximum value is imposed by the mechanical distance between the
lower notch sensor and the printing head.

CUSTOM/POS EMULATION
To define the alignment point you need to set the printer parameters that compose the numerical value of the “Notch
Distance” parameter.
For example, to set a notch distance of 15mm between the notch and the alignment point, the parameters must be
set on the following values:
Notch Distance Sign
Notch Distance [mm x 10]
Notch Distance [mm x 1]
Notch Distance [mm x .1]
:+
:1
:5
:0
The “Notch Distance” parameter, may be modified as follows:
• during the Setup procedure of the device (see cap.5)
• by modifying the Setup.ini file (see par.12.9)
• by driver (see par. 12.2)
• by using the $1D $E7 command (for more details, refer to the Commands Manual)

10.4 Printing area
It is important to well calibrate the height of the printing area of ticket according to the inter-notch distance, in order
to print ticket containing only one notch and to not overlay printing to a notch (that will make it useless for the next
alignment).
The following figure shows an example of tickets with “Notch Distance” set to 0:
Cutting line

PRINTING
AREA
A
H

L
To use all the notches on the card, you must comply with the following equation:
L > H+A
where
L = INTER-NOTCH DISTANCE
A = NON-PRINTABLE AREA ( 0mm ≤ A ≤ 26.5mm )
H = HEIGHT OF THE PRINTING AREA
The height of the printing area (H) can be increased to make no progress on alignment (D = 0) but no further.
In CUSTOM/POS emulation, after a performed cut, the paper is not completely recovered (in orde to avoid jamming
when using of thin paper). This decreases the height of the non-printable area : A = 10mm.
So, in this emulation, it is important to consider the presence of this non-printable area when you define the layout
of the ticket to print. Otherwise, you can use the command $1C $C1 to recover paper completely (see Commands
Manual for more details).
The SVELTA emulation, instead, it is designed specifically for ticketing and then for using with heavy paper, which
avoids the risk of paper jams. After performing a cut, the device completely recovers the paper and therefore the
distance of recovery after cutting does not generate non-printable areas: A = 0.
