· Do not install the unit at a location where its operation could be hindered.
· Do not place anything on the unit or leave small objects, like a clip or pin, around it. A
foreign object could cause trouble if it gets inside.
· Do not use any sharp-pointed object, such as a pen, for example, to touch the operation
panel of the unit. It could cause trouble.
· Do not use the equipment near a radio or TV receiver. Do not share the power from a plug
socket a radio or TV receiver is connected to. It may cause a reception problem.
· Use the equipment only at the specified power supply, voltage and frequency. Otherwise,
it may emit smoke and catch fire or cause other problems.
· Connect only the specified power source. Use of an unspecified power source could cause
trouble or smoke/fire.
· Confirm that a plug socket used for connection has sufficient capacity.
· Avoid connecting a power cable to a plug socket shared by other devices or extending the
wiring too far. It may result in the cable catching fire or a power outage. Also, do not
step on or apply an excessive force (Pull, load) to the cable, and do not use the unit with
such a force applied to it.
· Never connect a grounding cable (Frame ground) to a gas pipe. There is a danger of
explosion. When connecting or disconnecting the grounding cable, be sure to disconnect
the power cable and the power plug from the plug socket.

UPC-A
<For print examples, see Page 70.>
This bar code, consisting of numerals only, has a fixed length of 12 column; a 11columns number entered from the host or application software plus a check
column(12th column) automatically calculated inside the printer. If the 12thcolumn numeral is sent from the host, the entire bar code will be printed as it is.
- 80 -
UPC-E
This bar code, consisting of numerals only, has a fixed length of 8 column; the
first number system character is "0" stationary. A 12-column numeral entered
from the host or application software is compressed to 8 columns with a check
column and printed. The 12th-column check column is automatically calculated
inside the printer and sent from the host, the entire bar code will be printed,
compressed to 8 columns.
JAN-13(EAN) This bar code, consisting of numerals only, has a fixed length of 13 column; a 12column number entered from the host or application software plus a check
column(13th column) automatically calculated inside the printer. If the 13thcolumn numeral is sent from the host, the entire bar code will be printed as it is.
JAN-8(EAN) This bar code, consisting of numerals only, has a fixed length of 8 column; a 7column number entered from the host or application software plus a check
column(8th column) automatically calculated inside the printer. If the 8thcolumn numeral is sent from the host, the entire bar code will be printed as it is.
CODE39
This bar code, consisting of uppercase alphabets and numerals, has a variable
length of column. A start/stop code "*" is automatically added by the printer.
Available characters include a space and " $ %* + -· / 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 " and
uppercase alphabets.
ITF
This bar code, consisting of numerals only, has a variable length of even column.
If an odd-column code is transferred, nothing will be printed.

Available characters include " 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D $ + - . / : " A start/stop
code is required; any one of A, B, C, and D is used.
CODE128
·
This bar code consists of all of 128 ASCII code characters and has a variable
length of column. This printer supports the code subsets A, B, and C. By
prefixing a transfer code with any one character of A, B, and C, you can select the
code subset to start from. If not prefixed with A, B, or C, the code subset B will
be selected.
·
The code subset A is the bar code consisting of standard uppercase alphabets,
numerals, symbols, and special codes.
