Product Presentation
The TTP 7020 and TTP 7030 are kiosk printers using direct thermal printing. The print speed
is up to 75 mm per second.
The printers have integrated control boards. TTP 7020 communicates with the host computer
through an IEEE-1284 bi-directional parallel port, while TTP 7030 uses the USB interface.
Both TTP 7020 and TTP 7030 can be equipped with an optional serial port.

Printer drivers for Linux and Microsoft Windows™ are available, and the printer is compatible
with the Plug and Play standard. It is also possible to address the printer directly from the
kiosk software without using drivers.
The loop generating presenter mechanism handles documents of various lengths. It holds the
printout until printed, then cuts and presents the complete printout to the customer. The retractand-retain version of the printer can retract uncollected printouts into a wastebasket inside the
kiosk.
A flip-up print module gives the operator access to the paper path, and print head, for
maintenance purposes.

Installation Considerations
Installation Considerations
The TTP 70x0 printer should be installed in some kind of enclosure such as a self-service
kiosk. The illustration below gives an example of a printer-mounting shelf. See also Printer
dimensions on page 110. 3D solid models and outline drawings for CAD are available on
http://www.zebra.com.

Installation Considerations
Electrostatic Discharges, and Earth Currents
Preventing ESD and earth currents from affecting the printer operation requires proper
connection of the printer chassis to protective earth through a mounting platform or through a
separate earth conductor.
Ambient Light
There is an optical sensor just inside the paper exit at the front of the printer.
To ensure proper printer operation, design the printer enclosure so that it prevents direct
sunlight or light from indoor lamps from reaching the sensor through the paper exit.

The paper-near-end sensor alerts the system when a couple of meters of paper remain on the
roll. The purpose of this sensor is to get an early alert so that you can replace the paper roll in
time in remotely located kiosks.
The weekend sensor should alert when the remaining paper does not last over a weekend. A
reason to use this sensor is that it is more expensive to get a service technician out on a
weekend or holiday than it is to replace the roll before it is totally empty.
The Zebra 110 mm and 150 mm paper roll holders are equipped with paper-near-end sensors,
while the 200 mm roll holders have both paper-near-end and weekend sensors.
When installing the Zebra roll holder just connect the cable from the roll holder to connector
J1 at the back of the printer. See Figure 1, Printer Exterior, Rear View , on page 11.
If you use custom designed roll holders, connect the sensors according to Figure 10, Papernear-end Sensor Connection, on page 27.

Installing a Paper Roll
1. Turn the new paper roll as shown. The paper should be inserted into the printer with the
temperature-sensitive side up.
Figure 11 • Paper Roll Orientation
2. Tear off a full turn of the paper (approximately 0.5 m) from the new paper roll.
Caution • This is important since the outer end of the paper is usually fixed to the roll with
some type of glue or self-adhesive substance that might otherwise cause paper jam or
even print head damage.

opposite to that as shown in the figure above, the sensor will not detect the paper.
5. Insert the paper through the paper entry opening at the back of the printer.
The printer will now feed, cut and eject a printout, and then automatically go on-line.
Note • In high temperature and high humidity, the paper may lose its stiffness resulting in
paper jam at automatic paper loading. In such cases, load paper manually.

Programming
There are two completely different ways of setting up the printout: Text oriented and driver
oriented style.
02/11/2009
Text oriented
The printout can be seen as the page of a simple word processor. You
send text and graphics to the printer, which prints the information in the
same sequence as the data is received. Design features are limited to the
font stored in the flash PROM of the printer.
It is possible to select a fixed page length. If you do that, text and
logotypes can also be printed in landscape orientation.
There are two text cursors, one for portrait, and one for landscape. The
start positions of the cursors are the upper left corner for the portrait
cursor, and the upper left corner for the landscape cursor, see Ticket
Styles on page 34. You can switch between these cursors at any time; the
cursor will retain its last position on the ticket.
Driver oriented
All TTP 70x0 printers can print documents through a driver. When a
Windows driver is used, you can use any Windows program to design
the ticket with text, graphics, bar codes or whatever you want to print
and in any orientation you want.
The Windows driver issues all the necessary commands. By setting up
printing preferences in the driver you select how the printer should cut
and present the printout.

depends on what you want the command to do.
Examples
Command examples are formatted in Courier and typed in the same way as used in the
Zebra TTP editor:
<ESC>&P<001><019>
Where <ESC> means the escape character 27 decimal (hex 1B). Numbers between less-than
and greater-than characters, for example <015>, means 15 decimal (hex F). When the
numbers indicate a hex value, h is appended to the number.
Example • <065>, <65d>, <41h> and A are four different ways of expressing the
character A.

Software Command Syntax
Software Command Syntax
The commands in this section are grouped after what they do, and these groups are sorted in a
theoretical usage sequence. It starts with commands for specifying the printed page — through
text-and-graphics commands — to cut-and-present commands. System and status commands
are presented at the end.
Page Setup
Page setup is now done with parameters instead of dedicated commands. This makes it
possible to store the setup in the non-volatile parameter memory. To minimize doubling of
functions the page setup commands have been removed from this manual. The parameters to
use are described under Printable Area on page 90.

Calibrate Blackmark Sensor
Looks for a black mark, measures the contrast of the mark and sets parameter n51 to a suitable
value for the detected voltage, then reverses to the start position.
To make the calibration permanent, send ESC & 4h, store parameter values.
Important • Be sure to first set up the length of the black mark and the distance between two
black marks in the parameter setup.
ESC # is available in hardware revision B or higher.

In black mark mode, an ESC Z starts looking for a black mark at the current position and
continues for one page length. If no black mark is found, bit 3 in status byte 1 is set to 1 and
the printer will report NAK 0A on the next status query.
When black mark mode is disabled, ESC Z will perform a form feed without cut (disregarding
the setting of parameter 34).

2. Interpret CR as CR/LF which inserts line space as specified by the line spacing setting
(see parameter p13), and returns the print position to beginning of the line.

Linefeed
Linefeed is interpreted as CR/LF by default. This inserts line spaces as specified by the line
spacing setting (see parameter p13), and returns the print position to beginning of the line. LF
also converts text from the input buffer to pixel lines and stores them in the line buffer, ready
to be printed.
By changing the default settings, you can:
1. Interpret LF as Linefeed. This inserts line space as specified by the line spacing setting (see
parameter 13 on page 82), without returning the print position to the beginning of the line.
2. Ignore LF.

Send dot-line, 203 dpi
Sends one line of dot data. This command is used to build images, one dot line at a time by the
printer driver and should not be combined with text commands.
n
Determines the number of bytes. Range: 1-255.
<data>
1 – x bytes, where x is the printhead width in bytes. The printhead width
is in the spec. of the printer.
Example • 80 mm printers use 72 bytes
Example • 112 mm printers use 104 bytes
Caution • Always send the No. of bytes that you specify!
If more than the specified No. of bytes are received, the rest of the bytes will be interpreted
as text or commands. This can cause any kind of problems in the printer as graphics data
can contain any hex value. If you specify less data then the actual printhead width, the
printer will fill the rest of the dot line with spaces.

Cut and Eject
Hex
Decimal
Effects a paper cut-off and an eject through the presenter module. The RS command
automatically gives the eject length of 50 mm in addition to the factor stored in parameter p47.
If the printout length is too short, paper-feed is added until the minimum printout length (set by
parameters 37 and 38) is reached, before execution of the Cut command.
Note • The cut position is 17 mm before the print line. This makes the last 5 lines on a page
end up in the beginning of the next page. To get the cut after the text, Please set parameter 49
to auto.
You can also use <RS> together with the paper advance command:

Cut only, no Eject
Hex
Decimal
Effects paper cut-off only.
Eject can be effected with the ESC FF n command (see Eject (run presenter) on page 56).
To avoid thin strips of paper in the printer, multiple cut commands without paper feed inbetween will not be performed. If the printout length is too short, paper-feed is added until the
minimum printout length is reached, before execution of the cut command.
See Also Note on cut position for the <RS> command above.
Note • Use the cut command if you want full control over the printer from your system. But
remember that you also must add commands to feed to the correct cut position and eject the
paper so that the customer can get hold of it.
Note • Top margin settings that moves the paper counts as paper feed.

Eject (run presenter)
hex
decimal
ESC FF ejects the document through the presenter module. Variable n represents the number
of eject-steps.
One step is approximately 2 mm
The maximum number of steps is 255
Normally, this command is placed after a cut command (ESC RS) to partially eject the
printout to the customer. Set the number of eject steps so that a good portion of the printout is
retained in the presenter module, avoiding that the printout drops to the floor.
Another use of the command is to eject a part of a long document without preceding cut. The
reason to do this is to limit the size of the loop build-up in the presenter.
Note • The loop is limited to the value set by ESC f n to avoid paper jam. The default
setting of n=18, gives a loop of just above 0.5 m. When this length has been looped, the
printer presents that part of the printout. Then, without cutting the paper, it continues to print
the rest of the printout.

Note • Errors 02h, 05h, and FFh are terminal faults that require you to reset the printer before
it will be operable again. The printer automatically recovers from the other error conditions
as soon as the error is corrected.
A status enquiry command can only return one status code at a time. If there are two or more
simultaneous errors, each error condition should be cleared and the status enquiry repeated in
order to get a complete report of all status codes
The host computer cannot be certain that all error conditions have been cleared until an ACK is

Acknowledge Marker
hex

n1
One-byte marker. Range 1h to 255h
The "acknowledge marker" n is placed in the command queue and when the execution of
commands reaches the marker it is sent back to the host computer. This is an addition to the
status commands that pass the queue and are answered immediately when received.
Example •
"Print data" <LF><esc>p<ESC><ACK><01h>
Wait for <01h>
<RS><ESC><ACK><02h>
Wait for <02h>
The printer will send <01h> when <print data> has executed and <02h> when the ejecting
has been performed.
Note • You must wait for the acknowledge marker to return before sending any more data to
the printer.
Note • Acknowledge marker cannot be used for events that write to the flash PROM, for
instance font loading. This is because the writing procedure erases the buffer, including the
markers, and uses all RAM in the printer.

Font Loading
Font Loading
The printer can store 8 fonts in its flash PROM. The memory available for fonts is printed on
the self-test printout. The character size is fixed3, so you must load one font file for each
character size you require. The fonts are given font numbers when they are loaded into the
printer. The first font is assigned number 0 and the next font 1 etc. up to font 7. Parameter p14
“Font Selection” will determine what font to use when no font selection command has been
received (see Default Parameter Settings on page 74).
You cannot erase a single font, but must erase font 4-7 with command ESC & D, or all eight
fonts with ESC & C, then reload the fonts you wanted to keep.
Windows software for font generation and management is available on the Zebra web site. If
you need to load fonts in a non-Windows environment, use the ESC & NUL command.
The time required for processing the font data that is loaded is typically 15–20 seconds per
font, excluding transfer time. During this time, any data sent to the printer will be lost.
Note • The font processing ends with a reset. The presenter motor runs momentarily to
indicate that the printer is ready to be used.
Caution • Loading to the flash PROM will erase the RAM completely since the RAM is
used during the loading process. Any print data residing in RAM will thus be lost.
File Format
A font consists of a header describing the font, then data for every character in the font. The
header has to be downloaded even if the font consists of a single character only. Below is a
description of the font header.
1 byte
Reserved
Should always be 0 (zero)
1 byte
Reserved
Should always be 0 (zero)
1 byte
Char. width (X)
The number of bytes required for the width of one character,
usually 2 or 3. Range 1 to 8.
1 byte
Character pitch
The maximum width of one character in the set. This value is
used for tab position calculation. Range 1 to 255.
1 byte
Char. height (Y) The maximum height of one character matrix measured in
pixels. This is also the minimum line spacing for this character
set.
27 byte Font name
String of characters used to identify the character set.
This will be printed on status printouts. (E.g. Swiss 10 cpi.)
Char_matrix table: 256 records, each containing 3 bytes.
3 byte Char_width (pixels) + Char_Ystart(pixels) + Char_Yheight(pixels)
3. Multiple height, and width commands can be used on all fonts.

The bitmap data consists of bitmap patterns for each character in a character set for which the
parameter Char_width in the Char_matrix table is set to a value between 1 and 24. A character
that has its Char_width set to zero, is not included in the bitmap data.
The bitmap for one character is then defined according to the following table:
Example • In this example, each row consists of 3 columns equal to 3 bytes.
(COL 0, ROW Ystart) , (COL 1, ROW Ystart) , (COL 2, ROW Ystart)
(COL 0, ROW Ystart+1) , (COL 1, ROW Ystart+1) , (COL 2, Ystart+1)
(COL 0, ROW Ystart+Yheight), (COL 1, ROW Ystart+Yheight ), (COL 2, ROW
Ystart+Yheight)
In order to minimize the required storage space, only rows between Ystart and Ystart+Yheight
are included in the character bitmap.

Logotypes
Logotypes
Up to 16 logotypes can be stored in the flash PROM of the printer. The logotypes can
be positioned and printed out with commands ESC g or ESC L.
The exact number of logotypes and their sizes is determined by the total amount of memory
used for fonts, logotypes and loaded firmware. Make a test printout to see how much memory
is available.
Loading
Windows software that converts black and white BMP bitmap files to logotypes and load them
into the printer is available on the Zebra web site. If you need to load logotypes in a nonWindows environment, use the ESC & 1 command.
The time required by the printer to process logotype data, excluding transfer time from the PC,
is typically 15 to 20 seconds, per logotype. During this time, any data sent to the printer will be
lost.
File Format
A header containing information about the logotype number, size and logotype name shall
define each loaded logotype. Immediately after the header follows the actual bitmap of the
logotype.
ESC & 01H <Header><Bitmap>
Header
Byte 0
Logotype number used to identify the logotype when printing.
Byte 1

Logotypes
Printing
To print a logotype you can use two commands, ESC L n1, prints the logotype at the current
cursor position, just like any character. ESC g n1 n2n3 n4n5 prints the logotype at a
specified X-Y position.
n1
One byte logotype number, (0—15)
n2n3
Two byte X position measured in pixels from the left hand edge of the
print window.
n4n5
Two byte Y position in pixels from top of the page.
These bytes must always be inserted but they are ignored in variablepage-length mode where logotypes are always printed at the current Yposition.
Erasing
All logotypes are erased with the ESC & L command.
Caution • Loading to the flash PROM will erase the RAM completely since the RAM is
used during the loading process. Any print data residing in RAM will thus be lost.

Status Reporting
Status Reporting
The printer is equipped with a number of sensors that report the printer status and various error
conditions such as out-of-paper, previous printout not removed, etc.
A good practice in unattended printer applications is to check for errors and paper availability
before printing.
1. Send a Status Report Query (ESC ENQ 6, see page 64) and check that the answer is "No
errors"
2. If an error is indicated, read out the error message with Status Request (ESC ENQ 1,
page ), and take appropriate actions. Repeat this step until no more error code is available.
If weekend sensor signals that paper is below this level, check again after next document
is printed. If the sensor still signals a level below the weekend level after three successive
print/check cycles, report the condition to the systems supervisor so that he can schedule a
service visit to the printer. This three-cycle check is to ensure that dirt on the side of the
roll does not cause the alarm.
3. Send a paper-near-end query (ESC ENQ 2, see page 62) to see if the sensor reports low
paper level.
4. If paper-near-end is indicated, report the condition to the systems supervisor so that he can
schedule a service visit to the printer.
5. Print the printout.
Important • A status reply must be read! Sending a second status query without reading the
reply of the first query may lock the printer.
Note • When using a multitask OS, status queries and responses may not be transferred
immediately from your application to the printer and vice versa. So write your program in
such a way that it repeats the query if it gets a timeout or an invalid reply. Good practice is to
ask once every 2-3 seconds, five times before giving up.
Note • You should construct your application in such a way so as not to request status while
printing, as this can result in loss of data.

Default Parameter Settings
Default Parameter Settings
Some of the printer settings can be stored in the flash PROM so that they will be used also
after power OFF.
The stored parameter settings are printed out on the self-test printout.
The number in front of the function is the parameter number (n) used when setting the
parameter with the command ESC & P n v.
You can use the parameter settings pretty much like normal commands. Either send the
parameter values with each printout, or set them up once and then send ESC & 4h to store all
settings in the flash PROM.
You can always return to factory default settings by sending ESC & F 10, and then storing
those settings with ESC & 4h.
Note • The parameters can be locked so that no changes are possible. Check parameter 53 on
the self-test printout to find out.
Note • If you try to set a parameter to an invalid value, the parameter will be set to the
nearest valid value below.

Paper width
Paper length, top, and bottom margins are in pixel lines. Paper width is in bytes or mm. (1 byte
= 1 mm.)
Example • If Free RAM on a TTP 70x0/112 is 114627 bytes, page width is 104 mm = 104
bytes, top margin is 20 mm, and bottom margin 10 mm (20 x 8 =160 and 10 x 8 = 80 pixel
lines):
Page length =

Aligning Preprint And Thermal Print
The printer can synchronize the cutting of the printout with black-marks printed on the back of
the paper. You use this function when you have preprint on the media and you don't want a cut
in the middle of that preprint, or text printed on top of the preprint.
The sensor used to detect the black-marks is the same sensor as used for paper end detection. It
is positioned 9 mm from the edge of the paper on the side of the blue release arm, and 25 mm
behind the cutter (as seen from the presenter [output] side of the printer). The sensor accuracy
is about ±0.5 mm so avoid designing printouts with too high demands for synchronization.

Aligning Preprint And Thermal Print
Since the same sensor is used for both paper end and black-mark detection, the printer must
know the length of the black-mark to avoid signaling end-of-paper when it detects a blackmark. The default setting accepts black-marks in the range 3 –16 mm, and works perfectly
with the recommended black-mark length of 5 mm. Marks shorter than 3 mm are interpreted
as dirt, and marks longer than 16 mm as out-of-paper. You can change both these values by
changing the printer default settings.
Black mark mode is selected by setting parameter 35 to 1, and storing the parameters.
Important • It is essential that you store the parameters in the printer for black mark
synchronization even if you enable black marks in the Windows driver. This is because
Windows is not used at paper loading, and feeding with the FF button on the printer.

Parameters Used
Parameters Used
Parameter n35 Black Mark
Enables/disables black mark check.
Parameters n37 and n38 - Page Length Minimum
Measure the distance from the trailing edge of one black mark to the trailing edge of the next.
The resolution is 0.125 mm so multiply the distance by 8, then calculate the value to enter as
n37 and n38.
Example • If the page length is 100mm, (100 x 8) / 256 = 3.125.
n37 is the integer value, that is 3, while
n38 is the fraction, 0.125 x 256 = 32
Parameter n39 – Max Black Mark Length
Measure the height of the black mark. The resolution is 0.125 mm so multiply the black mark
length (in millimeters) by 8 and enter the value as n39.
Parameter n40 – Min Black Mark Length (Garbage Filter)
This parameter is actually a filter to filter-out garbage on the paper. If a spot is smaller than this
value, it will not be regarded as a black mark. 1. About ⅓ of the black mark length is usually a
suitable setting.

it is garbage and the spot is ignored.
it is still black after n40 x 0.125 mmYes
it is probably a black mark.
the paper gets white within an additional
n39-n40 plus 5 mm
it is a Blackmark
The 5-mm is a constant added to make sure that noise on the edge not will interfere with the
samples. If it at this point still is still black we have detected out of paper.
Be careful about n40 and n39. If n39 – n40 is too small, then the minimum detection area will
be too little. This area should not be less than 2 mm.

Parameters Used
Parameter n41 and n42 –Black Mark Cut Offset
After the black mark is detected (black to white change) the printer feeds another distance to
place the paper in cut position. This distance cannot be negative so placing the black mark too
close to the paper edge is better than too far away.
The actual cut position

(ESC x n1 n2 is an obsolete command that sets n41 and n42. It is implemented for backward
compatibility with old drivers. Set parameters n41 and n42 with the
ESC & P n1 n2 command instead.)
FF (Form Feed)
Use FF to print the buffer content, go to the next top of form (black mark), and cut the paper.
ESC Z (Go To Next Top of Form)
Use ESC Z to move the paper to the next top of form. This is practically a Form-Feed without
printing and cut. It searches for the next black mark for maximum one page length + black
mark length (256 x n37+n38 + n39)/8. An additional length of 20 mm is added to be sure to
pass the edge of the next black mark. If there is no black mark within the set distance plus
20 mm, an error is raised.

Black-Mark Sensing from Within Windows
Black-Mark Sensing from Within Windows
In Windows, the printer driver controls when the paper is cut and ejected. Settings in the driver
take over form the default parameter settings in the printer.
The settings are available in the Windows Printing Preferences Menu, in the Advanced
Options window. The names of the options boxes differ between driver versions, but the same
settings are available:
You set n35 to 1 by setting Black
Mark Check:
True
You set n37, n38 by setting Paper
Size:
If no standard paper size is corresponds to the page
length you have,
create a new form with that length in the Windows
“Printer Server Properties".
You set n39 by setting Maximum
Black mark:
to the length of the black mark on your paper
You set n40 by setting Minimum
Blackmark:
to the value you want for scrap filter
You set n41, n42 by setting Cut
Position:
to the length of transport that you want between black
mark and cut.
Note • When everything is set up correctly and the printer prints as it should; print a page,
then without switching the power off, send the store parameters command ESC & 04h to the
printer (for example using the PRTMON.EXE program from http://www.zebra.com). If
you do this, parameters that the driver uses are stored in the printer as default parameters.
This way the printer synchronizes on black mark also when you load paper, if you press the
FF button, etc.

The USB (Universal Serial Bus) is an interface designed to handle peripherals daisy chained to
a single connector. The transfer speed is up to 12 Mbits/s, which is quite adequate for the
printer. Use this interface in operating systems with USB support, for instance Windows XP.
USB devices are Plug and Play compatible and hot swappable, which means that they can be
connected and disconnected without turning off the power, or rebooting the computer.

Interface
Serial (Option on Both TTP 7020 and TTP 7030)
Serial (Option on Both TTP 7020 and TTP 7030)
The printer has a 10-pin connector on the control board. This connector can be used to connect
to an external RS-232 adapter. See Connecting To The Computer on page 18 for installation
instructions.
The transfer speed of the serial interface can be set to between 2 400 and 115 200 bits/s.
This low transfer speed limits the printing speed. Printing full-width graphics with 115 200
bits/s result in printing speeds of about 24 mm/s for the 80-mm version of the printer, and
16 mm/s for the 112-mm version.
Applications where text-only printouts are to be printed are suitable for serial interface
because of its easy to use bi-directional capability.

Firmware
Firmware
The firmware is stored in flash-PROM on the control board. A replacement control board may
not contain the same firmware version that you are currently using, so if you replace the
control board for some reason, upgrade it to the firmware version you want to use.
Loading
Note • We recommend you to design your kiosk system so that remote upgrade of firmware
is possible. If you need to upgrade firmware in the future, the kiosks can be spread over a
vast area and upgrade can become very expensive.
Fetch the firmware from the Zebra web site http://www.zebra.com. There you will also find a
loader program (Windows™ software) facilitating the loading of the firmware into the printer.
Are you using a Windows environment to load the firmware?
If…
Then…
No
a. Send ESC NUL (1BH 00H) to the printer.
b. Wait 0.5 seconds.
c. Send the firmware file to the printer.
d. Wait until the printer buzzes to confirm that the loading is complete (the
presenter motor runs for a second).
Yes
The loader program contains a help file with detailed instructions on how to
load the firmware into the printer.
Important • The loading and burning can take up to one minute. Do not abort before one
minute by turning OFF the power to the printer. Doing so may leave the printer in a state
where new firmware cannot be loaded.

Bootware
Bootware
The control board uses a small program that we call bootware to start the board and makes it
ready to receive firmware. Without bootware the board is dead and cannot communicate. After
a proper firmware loading, the bootware is no longer necessary.
To load bootware:
1. Connect a jumper to short the pins of connector JMP1 on the control board.
2. Connect a serial adapter to control board connector J4.
3. Connect the PC to the serial port through a 01902-000 boot cable (this is a normal serial
cable but pins 1 and 8 are interconnected in both ends).
4. Turn the printer ON.
5. Start the H83068.exe loader software.
6. Select boot file (1779-xxx.bin), and application file (1756-xxx.bin)
7. Press the load button
8. When loading is complete, remove the jumper from JMP1, and load fonts and set up
parameters using for example the TTP editor.
Firmware History
Functions and features are being added from time to time affecting the firmware in the printer.
The following table lists the changes of general interest.
Notice that the list may not contain the latest firmware versions. Please visit our web site
http://www.zebra.com for current information.
The firmware number is divided into two sections, the header and the version, separated by a
dash.

Interface
USB
1. Fixed the USB problem where the printers sometimes stop
communicating.
2. The firmware can now try to recover problems when the USB
communications stops (SOF tokens stops coming from the host). This
is done by taking the printer of the USB-bus and after 4 second put it
back on until the USB host recognize it, and resume communication.
This function can be switched on/off with system parameter (n57, bit 4,
“Disable USB recovery”).
3. The status LED is turned off when it tries to recover USB problems
(between USB disconnect and reconnect).
4. New parameter n59, Selects USB "Vendor Class” or "Printer Class",
and also change idProduct.

9. The USB chip will now also be hardware reset when it tries to recover
USB problems.
10. USB Tx-FIFO is cleared when new request is received to ensure that
old answer is NOT sent.
11. Will now clear RX-FIFO on channel 0 RX-error (USB), and will clear
stall conditions before clearing setup-flag on channel 0 as well.
Parallel
1. Fixed problem with parallel port error signaling in compatible mode
(Intel).
2. Register that controls Select, nFault and PError (on Intel) will now use
a shadow since the register is write-only.
3. Fixed so that USER1 also will show the state of the
PAPER_AT_PRESENTER sensor in EPP-mode on CPLD-printers.
4. Parallel Tx-register is cleared when new request is received to ensure
that old answer is NOT sent.

presents part of the printout to the customer. When the
customer pulls the ticket, a sensor reacts on the pull and feeds
out the full printout. Extremely long printouts can be partially
ejected to limit loop buildup.
Eject length after cut
Programmable eject length. Full eject, or printout held until
the customer removes it. Eject of uncollected printouts.
Printout retraction

Using a MacBeth densitometer, the print density must be
greater than 1.3. Anti-gloss filter is not allowed. Using a
Gretag densitometer, the print density must be greater than
1.5. The reflection from the black-mark must be less than
10%. The reflection from the paper must exceed 80%.
P1003636-001
Preprinting
Preprinting in the zone passing over the black-mark sensor is
not recommended. If required, OCR blind type of ink must be
used, (outside the 700-1100 nm range).
Punched holes
Punching must be done from the thermally coated side. Distorted
print can be expected within a zone of approximately 2-mm
around the edges of the hole. The function must be tested.
