Section 2: Installation
2.1 SITE LOCATION
Consider the following when setting up the printer:
•Place the printer on a solid flat surface with adequate space. Make sure there is enough space above
the printer to provide clearance for the top cover to swing open.
•Place it away from hazardous materials or dusty environments.
•Place it within operational distance of the host computer if connected, within interface cable
specifications.
2.2 MEDIA SELECTION
The size and type of the labels to be printed should have been taken into consideration before printer
purchase. Ideally, the media width will be equal to, or just narrower than, the print head. Using media that
does not cover the print head will allow the platen roller to tread on it and wear it out. The media edge will also
wear a groove in the platen roller, which can affect print quality.
Note:
For optimal print performance and durability, please use SATO-certified label supplies on this
printer. Using supplies not tested and approved for use by SATO can result in unnecessary wear and
damage to vital parts of the printer, and may void the warranty.
This printer can print on roll media. The printer uses sensors to detect I-Marks or Gaps on the media in order
to precisely position the print content.

Page 2-12
TH2 Series Operator Manual
Section 3: Operation and Configuration
OPERATION AND CONFIGURATION
Before using the printer, please consult this manual first. Otherwise, you may change default settings upon
which the instructional procedures in this manual are based.
The TH2 Series printer is shipped with standard printer firmware including the standard application SA
(Stand-alone). The stand-alone application is written in the Lua scripting language. This application can be
configured by the user using the operator panel and the LCD of the printer. A users can create label formats,
add data tables and change the printer settings. This section explains these procedures.
Another more efficient way to develop custom applications is to use the Windows application development
tool, AEP Works. Instead of editing on the printer itself, AEP Works is used for this purpose. Label formats,
data tables, printer settings, fonts, images and special Lua functions are created with this tool. The application
is then packaged into an application package file (.pkg file) that can be distributed and downloaded to the
printer.
Additional download utility tools are available for end users to facilitate downloading of applications as
package files to the printer by USB or LAN/WLAN interface and to do modification of the data tables that
resides in the printer. The applications package can also be stored on a SD card which can be used to
updating the printer with a new application.
Note:
When receiving the printer, an application might have been pre-installed by SATO or a partner of SATO. Thus
the actual operation of the printer might be different from what is described in this manual. The section about
the printer setup should still apply but the actual printer setting parameters might have been set differently
from what is described as default values in this manual.

• 4.3 How To Clean The Printer (Cleaning Sheet)
• 4.4 Easy Replacement of Parts
• 4.5 Adjusting Print Quality
Caution
•
•
•
•
•
When cleaning the print head, bear in mind that the print head and its surroundings may be hot. Wait
until the printer cools down before proceeding to clean the printer.
Be sure to turn off the power before cleaning.
The suggested cleaning schedules here are just guidelines. If necessary, clean as appropriate,
depending on the degree of contamination.
Use a cleaning pen, cotton swab or cotton cloth, from an approved cleaning kit, to clean the printer
units.
Use only soft, lint-free materials for cleaning. Avoid using hard objects for the cleaning process, as
they will damage the components.
4.1 CLEANING THE PRINT HEAD AND PLATEN ROLLER
The print head not only generates printouts of barcodes, but also graphics and text. To produce optimal
printing, it must be kept clean in spite of the dirt and adhesive that constantly accumulates on its print surface.
Furthermore, dirt can accumulated along the label path, affecting parts like sensors and guides, and reducing
their performance.
Therefore, it is important to clean these important components periodically. The printer cleaning kit and
cleaning sheets can be purchased from your authorised SATO representative.
When to clean with a cleaning kit
♦ For the print head, platen roller, paper sensor, and media guide: clean after using up every other roll of
media.
♦ For other parts: clean after finishing every six rolls of media.
When to clean with the cleaning sheet
♦ For print head: clean after using every six rolls of media, or when you find any burned glaze on the surface
of the print head.

4.3 HOW TO CLEAN THE PRINTER (CLEANING SHEET)
If certain stains on the print head cannot be removed easily with cotton swabs dabbed in cleaning solution,
use the cleaning sheet to clean or to clear such stubborn debris.
1. Make sure the printer is powered off and disconnect the
power cable. If the optional battery pack is installed,
remove it as well.
2. Lift the Top Cover.
3. Remove the media.
4. Place the head cleaning sheet between the print head
and the platen roller. The coarse side of the cleaning
sheet should face the surface of the print head with its
exposed elements.
5. Close the top cover with approximately 25mm (1 inch)
of the cleaning sheet extended out of the printer.
6. Using both hands, slowly pull the exposed cleaning
sheet outwards. This will remove any dirt stuck to the
print head.
7. When the cleaning sheet has been removed, perform
steps 2 to 6 to repeat the cleaning procedure one or two
more times.
8. When no more additional dirt appears on the cleaning
sheet after it has been pulled out, you can stop cleaning
with the sheet.
9. Use the cleaning pen from the cleaning kit or use a
cotton swab moistened with head cleaner to gently
remove any remaining dirt from the print head.

4.5 ADJUSTING PRINT QUALITY
Print quality can be optimized with regular cleaning and maintenance of the print head and components along
the media path. Additionally, you can fine-tune print quality by adjusting print darkness and print speed
settings.
When evaluating and adjusting the printer for optimum print quality, a barcode verifier system is highly
recommended for evaluating the printouts. The human eye is a poor judge of the relative widths of the bars in
a symbol, a characteristic that is extremely important for good barcode quality.
Print Darkness
This adjustment allows the user to control (within a specified range) the amount of power that is used to
activate the print head heating elements. It is important to find a proper print darkness level based on your
particular label. The printed images should not be too light, nor should the edges of text or graphics be
smudged. Instead, the edges of each image should be crisp and well-defined. The adjustment can be made
via the PRINTER SETTING menu.
Print Speed
The other method of controlling print quality is by controlling the speed at which the label is printed. It is
especially critical when printing ladder barcodes (barcodes printed with the bars parallel to the print line).
When printing a ladder barcode, it is important to allow the head to cool sufficiently before stepping to the next
position. If it does not have sufficient time to cool, the bar will be smeared on the trailing edge. The adjustment
can be made via the PRINTER SETTING menu. For more information, please refer to Section 3.7.3 When
Print Ctrl is selected in the SETUP menu.

7.3 LOCAL AREA NETWORK (LAN) ETHERNET AND WIRELESS LAN (cont’d)
[Restrictions]
1) Not supporting Atheros SuperG and XR.
2) Extended Aironet is not supported.
3) When AdHoc is in use, baud rate will be based on IEEE802.11b.
4) When AES is in use, the connection to AP by Broadcom will be unstable.
This is because Broadcom is equipped with AES based on 802.11Draft.
5) There is no guarantee of proper operation for DSA authentication of EAP-TLS.
Notes
For Both On-board LAN and Wireless LAN Interface
• To open/close Print data port (Port 1024), Status port (Port1025) or Sending/Receiving port (Port 9100),
make sure to close and open the port at intervals of approximately 150ms to 200ms. If you don't have
enough time from closing to opening the port, it may result in double connection.
• If the host requests the connection to the port already connected (Port 1024, Port 1025 or Port 9100), the
printer accepts the request (establishing double connection); however, the printer disconnects the second
connection immediately.
For Wireless LAN Interface
1) Communication range and transmission rates between the host computer and the printer (Wireless LAN
board) may change depending on the operating environment and conditions of radio waves.
2) In Infrastructure mode, the best operating environment and conditions of the radio field strength is Medium
level (50 to 75%) or higher.
3) Communication data may be lost under the inappropriate circumstances for radio waves such as the
mobile computing type of environment and actual operating conditions.
4) When multiple wireless network groups are nearby, the frequency for the channel of each group has to be
5 or higher.
For example: When the channel of Group1 is [1], set the channel of Group2 to [6] or higher.
For On-board LAN Interface
1) Do not connect and disconnect the LAN cable while starting up the printer. Restart the printer with which
you are having a communication error due to connection or disconnection of the LAN cable.

8.3 OPERATION MODE SELECTION
There are different modes of printer operation: Continuous, Tear off, Dispensing, Cutter, Linerless* Cutter,
Journal, Cutter Journal and Linerless* Cutter Journal mode. The differences are the ways in which the label
and liner (paper backing) are ejected. Before printer configuration, one must determine which mode will be
used. This section identifies the functional differences among the eight.
Note:
* The availability of linerless option is subject to future development. For more information, you may contact to
SATO sales representatives.
8.3.1 Continuous Mode
With this mode of operation, the media remains in position for printing at all times. To do so, means that the
previous printed label is only available for removal when one to two additional labels have been printed
(quantity depends on label size). This mode of operation is specifically suited for printing bulk quantities to be
applied later on.
In the figure below, n labels are printed (where n is equal to 1 or more).
Before printing, label number 1 is in the printing start position.
When all n labels are printed, label number n+1 is in the printing start position.

8.3.2 Tear Off Mode
In Tear Off mode, the media is fed forward to the tear bar when all labels are printed.
When printing starts (A. in the figure below), the media is in a position so that the previous label could be torn
off.
Before printing label 1, the media has to be fed back so that label 1 is in the printing start position (B. in the
figure below).
Label 1 and label 2 are printed. Now the printer waits 1 second (configurable) for more print jobs with label 3
in printing start position. (C. in the figure below).
Since no more print jobs were received, the media is fed forward so label 1 and label 2 can be torn off on the
tear bar (D. in the figure below).

8.3.3 Dispensing Mode
This mode of operation will peel the liner (paper backing) from the printed label as it is advanced to the
printer’s front. Once the printed label has been removed from the printer for application, the unprinted media
will retract and position itself so the next label may be printed.
This operational mode is specifically applicable to print operations where the label is to be immediately
adhered.
Motion 1 (Backfeed set to After)
When printing starts (A. in the figure below), the media is in the correct position to start printing.

8.3.6 Journal Mode
The Journal mode is identical to Continuous mode, except that neither the gap nor the I-Mark sensor is
enabled. The Sensor Type is set to None or Fix, in Continous mode. This means that the media is fed long
enough for all data to be printed regardless of any gaps or I-Marks.
In the figure below, n labels are printed (where n is equal to 1 or more).
Before printing, label number 1 is in the printing start position.
When all n labels are printed, label number n+1 is in the printing start position.

The size of the labels in the figure above differs. This is to indicate that normally in Journal mode, the size
depends on the data printed.
It is possible to set a fixed label length in Journal mode. In this case, the media will be fed according to this
length.

8.4.1 Start of print positions
The start position is always defined by the media setting and how the start of media is detected. For gap
sensing, the start of the label is detected as the start position. The length of the gap is not affecting the start of
print.
For I-Mark media, the start is defined by the media specification, and it is important that the I-Mark width and
distance to next label conform to the specification. If the I-Mark is positioned at the beginning of the label, a
negative pos adjust must be input by the user in order to print at the beginning of the label.
If the printer has been pitch calibrated so that the first bitmap line barely prints on the label, a positive print
offset can be used to move it farther down on the label. Moving it the opposite way is not possible in normal
mode.

8.4.2 Stop positions
The stop positions, or label rest position is defined by the motion mode and the configured sensor type. For IMark media, the media specification determines the stop position. The targeted position is to stop at the same
position as for gap media with 3 mm (0.12”) long gaps.

8.5 ADJUSTMENTS
8.5.1 I-mark (Pitch Offset (I)) and Gap sensor (Pitch Offset (G))
These two parameters modify the distance to the dot row. They exist to compensate for mechanical
tolerances in sensor position. These settings are stored in the parameter area and are configured by using the
shipping program. The accepted range here is +/- 3 mm (+/- 0.12”). It is not reset by “Reset all”.
8.5.2 Dispensing adjustment (Disp adj.)
This parameter adjusts the distance between the dot row and the tear/dispensing plate to compensate for
mechanical tolerance in order to get a good value for tear operation and peel off operation. This setting is
stored in the parameter area and is configured at the distribution centers when mounting the normal,
dispensing option. It is found in the advanced setup (ADV SETUP). It is not reset by “Reset all”. This
parameter affects the tear off action & peel off action in both backward and forward feed direction.
8.5.3 Cutter adjustment (Cutter adj.)
This parameter adjusts the distance between the dot row and the cutter position to compensate for
mechanical tolerance in order to get a good value for cutter and linerless* cutter operation. This setting is
stored in the parameter area and is configured at the distribution centers when mounting the cutter or
linerless* cutter option. It is found in the advanced setup (ADV SETUP) when a cutter is detected. It is not
reset by “Reset all”. This parameter affects the feed length in both backward and forward feed direction.
* The availability of linerless option is subject to future development. For more information, you may contact to
SATO sales representatives.
8.5.4 Position adjustment (Pos Adjust)
The position adjustment parameter adjust the end feed length in forward direction. It DOES NOT adjust the
backfeed length in any motion mode. This intentionally affects the stop position, and intentionally and
consequently where the image is printed on the label. There is only one use-case for Pos Adjust and it is for
I-Mark media, where the I-Mark is positioned off from the media specification. This setting is a user setting
and it is reset by “Reset all”.
8.5.5 Pitch adjustment (Pitch)
The pitch parameter is a parameter to tweak the print position. It accepts only positive values. This is a usersetting and it is reset by “Reset all”.
When print offset is larger than 0, it will move the printed image farther down the label. This is done by feeding
without printing. For example, if print offset is 16 dots, it would feed 16 dots before strobing; if an oscilloscope
would measure the motor step and head strobe signals, it would show exactly as that: 16 stepping cycles are
performed and then the strobing starts. A positive print offset can be used to adjust the top of form.
8.5.6 Offset adjustment (Offset)
The Offset parameter lets the user input an offset value for the default feed distances to the rest position. It
can be adjusted +/-3 mm (+/- 0.12”) and it adjusts the length in backfeed and forward feed. This setting
superpositions the Disp adj./ Cutter adj. setting. It is reset by “Reset all”. This parameter can be useful if the
customer has some odd label material that stops at the wrong position, or if the customer builds a special tear
off plate.
