1. Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the AMT Datasouth M5 DT PLUS Direct Thermal Bar Code Printer.
Although the printer takes only a small amount of space, it delivers reliable, superior
performance.
This printer provides direct thermal printing at user selectable speeds of: 2.0, 3.0, 4.0 or 5.0
inches per second. It accepts roll feed, die-cut, and fan-fold labels for printing media. All
common bar codes formats are available. Fonts and bar codes can be printed in 4 directions,
8 different alphanumeric bitmap fonts and a build-in true type font capability. You will enjoy
high throughput for printing labels with this printer.

Note:
Please select gap or black mark sensor by GAP or BLINE command prior to
calibrate the sensor.
For more information about GAP and BLINE command, please refer to
programming manual.
23
4.2 Gap/Black Mark Calibration, Self-test, Dump Mode
While calibrate the gap/black mark sensor, printer will measure the label length, print the
internal configuration (self-test) and then enter the dump mode.
Please follow the steps as below.
1.Turn off the power switch.
2. Hold on the button then turn on the power switch.
3. Release the button when LED becomes amber and blinking. (Any amber will do during
the 5 blinks).
The LED color will be changed as following order.
Amber
red (5 blinks)
amber (5 blinks)
green (5 blinks)

It calibrates the sensor and measures the label length and prints internal settings
then enter the dump mode.
Note:
Please select gap or black mark sensor by Diagnostic Tool or by GAP or BLINE
command prior to calibrate the sensor.
For more information about GAP and BLINE command, please refer to programming
manual.
24
Self-test
Printer will print the printer configuration after gap/black mark sensor calibration. Self-test
printout can be used to check if there is any dot damage on the heater element, printer
configurations and available memory space.

2. System occupies 960 KB in Flash memory so total flash memory space for user
downloading is 1088 KB
3. System occupies 1792 KB in DRAM so total DRAM memory space for user
downloading is 256 KB (M5 DT Model)
System occupies 7936 KB in SDRAM so total SDRAM memory space for user
downloading is 256 KB (M5 DT PLUS Model)
25
Dump mode
Printer will enter dump mode after printing printer configuration. In the dump mode, all
characters will be printed in 2 columns as following. The left side characters are received
from your system and right side data are the corresponding hexadecimal value of the
characters. It allows users or engineers to verify and debug the program.
Dump mode printout
Note: Turn off and on the power switch to reset the printer for normal printing.

4.3 Printer Initialization
Printer initialization is used to clear DRAM and restore printer settings to defaults. The only
one exception is ribbon sensitivity, which will note be restored to default.
Printer initialization is activated by the following procedures.
1. Turn off the power switch.
2. Hold on the button then turn on the power switch.
3. Release the button when LED turns green after 5 amber blinks. (Any green will do during
the 5 blinks).
