PRECAUTIONS FOR INSTALLATION
• Do not use or store the equipment in a place exposed to fire, moisture, or direct sunshine, or in a place
near a heater or thermal device where the prescribed operating temperature and humidity are not met, or
in a place exposed to much oil, iron powder, or dust. The equipment may become out of order, emit
smoke, or catch fire.
• Do not install or use the equipment in a place like a laboratory where chemical reactions are expected,
or in a place where salt or gases are contained in the air. There is a danger of fire or electric shock.
• Install the printer on a flat, stable desk or table that is free from vibration, in a well-ventilated place.
• Do not install the printer at a location where its operation could be hindered.
• Do not place anything on the printer 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
printer. 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 printer 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.
• When connecting/disconnecting the cables, be sure to turn off the power first, including the connected
side, and then connect/disconnect them, holding a plug and a connector. Pulling the cable itself could
cause it to snap or become damaged.
• Connect a power cable or a connector cable securely. If a reverse-polarity connection is made,
internal elements may be broken or a mating device may be adversely affected.
• Use a shielding wire or twisted pair wire for a signal line, in order to minimize noise effect. Do not
route the cable too long or connect it to a noisy device. Connection to a noisy device could cause
erroneous printing due to corrupt data, and so on.
• Use the equipment in an environment where there is a plug socket near the main body and you can
easily disconnect the power plug from it, to shut off the power.
• When the equipment will not be used for a long period of time, unplug it and remove the paper roll from it.
• When transporting the equipment, remove the paper roll from the paper holder.

Red/Black Print (Precautions for Use)
(1) Types of paper
The red and black two-color thermal paper changes its colors by controlling the energy applied to the
thermal head.
It is largely divided into two types, depending on the color development order.
Select
either of them to suit your application.
1. Red-based two-color thermal paper (PB670:
MITSUBISHI PAPER MILLS)
→
Red print (low energy)
2. Black-based two-color thermal paper (735FA:
Black print (low energy)
Black print (high energy)
RICOH)
→
Red print (high energy)
(2) High-energy printing rate
High-energy print (black print on red-based paper, or red print on black-based paper) required the
application of high energy to the thermal head. To protect the service life of the thermal head, use the
following printing rate as a guideline; use the fixed split (6-split) method.
1. Continuous print of high-energy print only
: 6 % or less
2. Mixed continuous print of low-energy and high-energy print
: 30 % or less of the standard printing rate of
12.5 %
3. Printing rate per dot line
: 50 % or less
(3) Minimum dots for high-energy print
When high-energy print is used, the recommended minimum area is 3 dots (length) × 3 dots (width) or
more.
Depending on the set printing density, the paper used, or the printing characters, a sufficient
change of color tone may not be obtained even by high-energy print.
(Characters such as [, !, ', (, i, -, font B with small dot matrix)
It is recommended to use in such printing patterns as double-width characters, double-height characters,
double-width and -height characters.
CAUTIONS
1) If high-energy print is continuously carried out at a high operating ambient temperature, the thermal head
will become hot more quickly and the protective circuit will be activated, to stop printing more frequently.
Fully consider the working temperature and printing rate.
2) If a bar code is printed on the 2-color paper, both colors may appear in normal print and high-energy print,
or the bar code may not be correctly read by a bar code reader.
Be fully aware of this when using the
2-color paper.
3) Do not perform high-energy print on the single-color paper (regular thermal paper).
It may deteriorate the
service life of the thermal head or the printing quality.
4) For setting, see Commands (DC3:
Switching the Red/Black Printing).

(3) Stop Bit (1 or More)
(1) Start bit
The system reads the status again after a lapse of 1/2 bit from a fall edge from the mark to space, and if it
is a space, this bit will be recognized as the start bit.
If it is a mark, the system will not recognize the bit as the start bit and try to detect the start bit again
without judging it as an error.
(2) Data bits + Parity bit
The system samples the data bits and parity bit for the 1 bit worth of time from 1/2 start bit and assumes
the then status as the data for the relevant bits.
The bits are called Bit 0, Bit 1, ..., Parity bit, counting
from the one closest to the start bit.
(3) Stop bit
The stop bit is the Mark level of 1 bit or more.
If a space is detected in detecting the stop bit, a framing
error will result.

Error Detection
The system detects a parity, framing, or overrun error.
If an error is detected, the relevant data will be

With a parity check specified, if an error is detected at parity check time, the relevant data will be

(2) Framing error
This error results if the Space status is detected at stop bit detection time.

columns. 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.
• The code subset B is the bar code consisting of standard uppercase/lowercase alphabets,
numerals, symbols, control codes, and special codes.
• The code subset C is the bar code consisting of special characters and 100 kinds of
numbers ranging from 00 to 99.
• The check digit automatically calculated inside the printer is added to the end of the
entered columns to be printed.
• Processing of the special characters
The characters above the ASCII code number 96 are considered special

Papiereinzugefehler oder einseitiges Einziehen des Papiers verursacht werden kann.
2) Das Papier immer so einsetzen, daß es in Berührung mit der Papiereinzugwalze kommt; andernfalls kann
das Papier nicht eingezogen werden, und der Druckkopf könnte beschädigt werden.
3) Wenn bei Etikettenpapier die Etikettensektion oder die schwarze Markierung (zwischen den Etiketten) nicht
beim Zuführen des Papiers um eine konstante Menge erkannt werden kann, leuchtet das ERROR-Lämpchen
am Drucker auf, und der Betrieb stoppt, weil ein Papierfehler erkannt wird.
4.10
Selbstdruckfunktion
Der Drucker hat eine Funktion, um Vorgabedruck auszuführen. Dazu wird das Gerät bei gedrückt
gehaltenem FEED-Schalter eingeschaltet. Jetzt wird die ROM-Version, die Stellung der DIP-Schalter, die
verwendeten Zeichen, der japanische Schriftzeichensatz etc. ausgedruckt. Nach dem Selbstdruck schaltet der
Drucker auf normalen Betriebszustand zurück.
Bei Etikettenpapier wird dieses bis zur Druckstartposition des nächsten Etiketts vorgeschoben.
VORSICHT:
1) Nicht diese Funktion verwenden, wenn die Papierrolle fast verbraucht ist.
2) Wenn die Etikettenlänge beim Drucken auf Etikettenpapier zu gering ist, wird der Druck über mehrere
Etiketten fortgesetzt.

< Fehler-Einzelheiten >
Kopfanheben
----- Tritt auf, wenn der Kopfanhebe-Hebel angehoben ist. Der Drucker kann nicht Papier
zuführen oder drucken. Die parallele Schnittstelle gibt BUSY und FAULT aus, und
die serielle Schnittstelle gibt DTR aus.
Kopfüberhitzen
----- Wenn die Temperatur des Druckkopfes ansteigt (auf 60°C oder mehr) wird ein
Druckkopftemperatur-Sensor zum Stoppen des Druckens aktiviert, um den Kopf vor
Überhitzung zu schützen. Die parallele Schnittstelle gibt BUSY und FAULT aus, und
die serielle Schnittstelle gibt DTR aus. Wenn die Temperatur absinkt (auf ca. 55°C)
wird der Druck automatisch fortgesetzt.
Papiermangel
----- Wenn der Durchmesser der Papierrolle abnimmt, reagiert der Papiermangel-Sensor,
um darauf hinzuweisen, daß die Papierrolle fast verbraucht ist. (Siehe "4.8
Papiermangel-Funktion".)
Papierende
----- Wenn die Papierrolle verbraucht ist, wird der Papiersensor in der Nähe des
Druckkopfs aktiviert, um den Druck zu stoppen. Siehe "4.7 Papierende-Funktion".
Etikettenpapierfehler
----- Tritt auf, wenn Thermalpapier oder nicht-vorschriftsmäßiges Etikettenpapier
eingesetzt wird, wenn Etikettenpapier gewählt ist. Die parallele Schnittstelle gibt
BUSY und FAULT aus, und die serielle Schnittstelle gibt DTR aus.

4..12 Rot/Schwarz-Druck (Vorsichtsmaßregeln)
(1) Papiersorten
Das rote und schwarze Zweifarb-Thermalpapier ändert seine Farbe durch Steuerung der am Thermalkopf
angelegten
Energie.
Es
ist
grundsätzlich
in
zwei
Typen
unterteilt,
entsprechend
der
Farbentwicklungsreihenfolge. Wählen Sie eine davon entsprechend Ihrer Applikation.
1. Auf Rot basiertes zweifarbiges Thermalpapier (PB670: MITSUBISHI PAPER MILLS)
Rotdruck (Niedrigenergie)
→
Schwarzdruck (Hochenergie)
2. Auf Schwarz basiertes zweifarbiges Thermalpapier (735FA: RICOH)
Schwarzdruck (Niedrigenergie)
→
Rotdruck (Hochenergie)
(2) Hochenergie-Druckrate
Hochenergiedruck (Schwarzdruck auf rot-basiertem Papier oder Rotdruck auf schwarz-basiertem
Papier) erfordert die Anwendung von hoher Energie am Thermalkopf. Zum Schutz der Lebensdauer
des Thermalkopfes verwenden Sie die folgende Druckrate als Richtlinie; verwenden Sie die
Festteilungs (6-Teilung) Methode.
1. Kontinuierlicher Druck mit nur hoher Energie
: 6% oder weniger
2. Gemischter kontinuierlicher Druck mit niedriger und hoher Energie
: 30% oder weniger der Standarddruckrate von
12.5%
3. Druckrate pro Punktzeile
: 50% oder weniger
(3) Minimale Punkte für Hochenergiedruck
Wenn Hochenergiedruck verwendet wird, ist der empfohlene minimale Bereich 3 Punkte (Länge) × 3
Punkte (Breite) oder mehr. Je nach der eingestellten Druckdichte, des verwendeten Papiers oder der
Druckzeichen kann eine ausreichende Änderung des Farbtons auch bei Hochenergiedruck nicht erzielt
werden.
(Zeichen wie [, !, ', (, ¡, - Schriftart B mit kleiner Punktmatrix)
Es wird empfohlen, bei solchen Druckaufgaben doppelbreite Zeichen und doppelhohe Zeichen zu
verwenden.
VORSICHT
1) Wenn Hochenergiedruck kontinuierlich bei hoher Umgebungstemperatur ausgeführt wird, erhitzt sich der
Thermalkopf schneller, und die Schutzschaltung wird aktiviert, so daß der Druck häufiger gestoppt wird.
Beachten Sie immer die Arbeitstemperatur und Druckrate.
2) Wenn eine Strichcode auf dem 2-Farb-Papier gedruckt wird, können beide Farben im Normaldruck erscheinen,
und der Hochenergiedruck oder der Strichcode können nicht richtig von einem Strichcodeleser gelesen werden.
Bei der Arbeit mit 2-Farbenpapier dies immer beachten.
3) Nicht normalen Hochenergiedrucka auf Einzelfarbpapier (normalem Thermalpapier) ausführen. Dadurch
kann die Lebensdauer des Thermalkopfs oder die Druckqualität beeinrächtigt werden.
4) Zur Einstellung siehe Befehle (DC3: Switching the Red/Black Printing)
