Software tools.
Direct programming with J-Script
The printer language is easy to understand and simple to integrate into
your host system. Variable data is linked with host applications. Label
design, graphic data and fonts are recorded on the Compact­Flash
card. The host computer sends only variable data to the printer.

Integration into SAP R/3 *
In cooperation with SAP, cab developed the “replace method” for
controlling cab printers quickly and easily from SAP R/3 using
SAPScript. As a Silver Level partner in SAP‘s Printer Vendor Program,
cab has access to the SAP development area for optimum printer
support in SAP environments.
* SAP and R/3 are registered trademarks of SAP AG.
abc – Basic Compiler
As an integrated element of the firmware, the Basic Compiler enables
the printer to process data via BASIC programming before it is sent
for print editing. This makes it possible for external printer languages
to be replaced or data from other systems, e. g. a PLC or balance, to
be transferred so information can be printed in different label formats.
Example of use:
Connection to a balance
Database Connector
In stand-alone mode with additional network connection, the Database
Connector enables stand-alone printers to access data directly from
a central SQL-compatible database and to print it as a label. Data
can also be written back to the database or changed during the
printing process.
Printer monitoring with Intranet and Internet
Using standard programs such as the web browser or FTP clients,
the integrated HTTP and FTP server enables print monitoring,
configuration, firmware updates and memory card administration.
Status, warning and error messages are sent to administrators or
users as e-mails or SNMP datagrams via SNMP and SMTP clients.
A time server is used to synchronize the time and date.
Administration Network Manager
The cab Network Manager enables the user to control multiple printers
across a network simultaneously. It supports monitoring, configuration, firmware updates, memory card administration, file synchroniza­
tion and PIN administration centrally.

cablabel R2+
A powerful label software that is available free of charge and
specially designed for cab printers and print & apply systems.
Different fonts, barcodes and graphics in variable heights, widths and
printing directions can be used to produce the best possible label
design.
In addition to the loadable TrueType fonts available with MS Windows,
cab printers also offer a large number of internal bitmap and vector
fonts. Thanks to the support of the most commonly used codepages,
cablabel R2+ is available in 24 different languages for

ER1 / 2 / 3 external rewinder for direct printer connection
The rewinder is screwed directly onto the printer. Labels can be
wound either inside or outside. Electronic control of the swing arm
ensures smooth and tight winding.
ER4 / 6 / 8 external rewinder with built-in power supply
The rewinder can be attached to almost any third-party printer.
All other technical data is the same as for the rewinder ER1 / 2 / 3.
EU4 / 6 / 8 external unwinder
It enables smooth label feed for heavy rolls. The unwinder works both
with inside and outside wound labels.
External panel
If the panel is no longer accessible, e. g. after installation within a
facility, an external panel can be installed. There are additional slots
for a CF memory card Type I and a USB master interface.
PS7 pause adapter for basic and dispensing devices
The print job is stopped by the pause signal.
The label being printed is finished first, e. g. by using a label loop.
Inputs: Pause, external error
Outputs:No print job, printer not ready, print job active
