stopped and broken off.
•
•
The label format memory is erased.
Material settings remain unchanged (width, length, reel/gap, material
designation).
•
The Easy Plug interface remains activated (that is, the effect of a preceding
#!A1 command is maintained).
But: During the act of erasing, for a short moment, no data can be
transmitted (because the handshake lines are deactivated for an instance).
•
•
Spooler (queue) is erased.
The error number for the #!Xn response string is deleted, if the error is
already acknowledged.

Definition
Reads out parameter settings via the set interface.
The currently set parameter value is given back as ASCII text, which is
terminated with <LF> (0x0a). Additionally, there is the option of reading out
all parameters together. Those can then be transferred to another printer
(see command #PC).
In case of a not available ID, only <LF> is given back.
Even those kind of parameters may be read out, which only appear under
certain conditions in the menu.
Syntax
#!PG<ParameterID>#G
Group H
<ParameterID>
Parameter ident number (ID). Each parameter in the menu has an own
Parameter-ID.

Notes concerning status acknowledgement via serial interface:
– Acknowledgement at RS232 will only work, if the CTS pin is set to
TRUE.
– The acknowledgement is given with the same parameters as the receive
channel (same Baud rate, parity, number of stop bits, data bits).
– Acknowledgement takes place without a handshake and inter-character
delay
– A delay period can be set.
– The status number is maintained in the acknowledgement string until the

Group G: Set parameter PRTP > CLST to “Yes”, if the label material should
automatically be fed forward and cut after the last label.

Cut command.
Groups A, E, H:
Command placed after a print job: The label material is fed forward, is cut
behind the last label and is fed backwards to the print position.
Group G:
Command placed after a print job: The cut is not done immediately, but is
stored in the cut memory. Because of this group´s printers not being able to
feed the material backwards, the cut is “saved” until the last label has
reached the cut position. This may be the case after the printing of the next
print job was started.

Commands
No. of labels per colour field
Definition
The number of labels which are to be printed per colour field can be defined
here. Varying quantities can be printed depending on the ribbon economy
mode. The quantity can therefore be set by the operator.
The #CP command is positioned between the #IM command and the #ER
command.
The command must stand outside of the command sequence #ER to #Q!
#CPa/b/
Syntax
Groups E, F
a = int
No. of different colours on the ribbon
b = int
No. of labels which are to be printed with a colour field set
Calculating b
If the printer is not in ribbon economy mode, b is calculated as follows:
b = ribbon colour field length: label length (b integer)
Example:
colour field length = 100 mm, label length =20 mm, therefore b = 5
If the entire surface of the label is not printed, even more labels can
generally be printed per colour field set in ribbon economy mode.
Consequently b is therefore dependent on
– the number of labels which are to be printed,
– the print position,
– the print speed and
– whether the labels are to be cut.

is used to represent character values from 0 to 26. Replace the X like in the
following examples:
~@ = 0
~A = 1

~1
represents the character FNC1. If FNC1 appears in the first position (or in
the fifth position of the first symbol of a Structured Append), it will indicate
that the data conforms to the UCC/EAN Application Identifier standard
format.
~2
is used to represent Structured Append. Structured Append is used to link
information from several symbols in a sequence. The ~2 must be followed
by 3 additional bytes. The first 4 bits of the first byte identify the position of
the particular symbol in the sequence. The last 4 bits identify the total
number of symbols in the sequence. The second and third bytes are used
as a file identifier and can have a value between 1 and 254 (up to
254*254=64516 identifiers). See Data Matrix Specification for more
information about this (ISO 16022).
~3
is only allowed in the first position of the symbol. It indicates that the data
contains commands for the barcode reader.
~4
Not allowed.
~5/~6
are only allowed in the first position of the symbol. If ~5 is used the header
[)> ASCII30 ASCII05 ASCII29 will be transmitted by the barcode reader
before the data in the symbol and the trailer ASCII30 ASCII04 will be
transmitted after the data. If a ~6 is used, the header [)> ASCII30 ASCII05
ASCII29 will be transmitted by the reader before the data and the trailer
ASCII30 ASCII04 will be transmitted afterwards.
~7NNNNNN specifies the Extended Channel to be used, where NNNNNN is a value
between and 000000 - 999999. For example: ~7000010 means Extended
Channel 10. Extended channel is used for using other character sets other
than ASCII. See Data Matrix Specification for more information about this
(ISO 16022).
~dNNN represents the ASCII character encoded by the 3 digits NNN. For example,
~d065 represents the character 'A'.

Lock/unlock memory areas
Enable or disable the write protection (simple lock) of various memory
areas of EPC Gen 2 tags. Before changing the write protection status for
the first time, the access password must once have been written into the
access password memory of the tag by means of a write command (#RFW
or #SRF + #VW/T). For any attempt to change to protection status the
same password must be provided as part of the #RFL command.
Definition
The #RFL command itself doesn’t write the access password into to tag!
The #RFL command doesn’t support the permalock option specified in the
EPC Gen 2 standard. It implements only the write protection which can be
reversed any time by issuing an unlock command with the right access
password.

ASCII data assumed on transponder (default)
Each byte on chip is printed as ASCII character on the label.
Binary data assumed:
Each byte chip is printed as hexadecimal number in ASCII presentation on
the label.
b = L
Least significant byte of block first (default) :

For reading a TID field (t=1), the size parameter can be used to limit the
size of the returned data. Giving no size information (n=0) will return the
whole content of the TID memory bank, which may contain more
information than expected (depending of RFID transponder/chip). Typical
values for n are:

If a motion control error happens during label execution, possible later
trigger operations are not executing.
RFID: To transmit data, which were read from or written to the transponder,
it is recommended to use trigger point r = 8. This makes sure that RFID
operations and printing have been successfully completed.

Horizontal print position
Definition
Determines the horizontal print position with absolute value in mm.
The horizontal zero position is always the position of the first dot of the
printhead. Looked at in feed direction, this dot is placed at the right end of
the printhead. Exception: The zero position was shifted with the #R
command.
If the printhead is positioned at the inner limit (right end if viewed in feed
direction), the first dot has a distance of 1 mm to the material zero line. In
other words: Looked at in feed direction there is a 1 mm wide stripe at the
right end of the label, which stays unprinted.

Commands
Define date and time variable
Definition of a variable which can contain date and/or time.
Definition

#VDD/name/uv/o/TIMETEXT#G
Syntax
name =
Group H (without AP 4.4 / 8MB)
Name of the variable (admissible characters see page 3).
u = (void)
as u = W.
= W
(Default setting) No update. The time is read into the variable once. This is
done during the compilation of the layout.
= U
The time is read repeatedly during the running print job. This happens
immediately after printing the relevant output field (#VW…), but counts only
for the same field on the next label.
The setting is not suitable for dispensers.
Reason: If the next label is printed considerably later (e.g. in single-start
mode with footswitch), the following happens: The output field on label 2
contains the time, at which the same field on label 1 was printed.
Example
Single-start mode
= Y
v = A
Label 1 is printed at 10.50 h, label 2 at 11.03 h. In this case, the imprint of
label 2 shows the time 10.50!
(Recommended for dispensers) The time is read repeatedly during the
printing of a label (approx. all 5 seconds).
Different times may be printed on a label (if option U or Y is applied).
o = (blank) The current date is printed.

Print graphics
Command for printing graphics. It provides the following features:
●
Supported graphics formats: BMP, PCX, JPG, TIF, GIF
●
Black and white as well as coloured graphics can be used.
Coloured and gray scaled graphics are converted automatically to black
and white, using an error diffusion algorithm. This may be very consuming
regarding both, the processor capacity as well as the memory capacity.
Therefore, it is strongly recommended to use black and white graphics.

As the logo information is only stored in the image buffer, it will be lost if
shifted beyond any layout border.

#YIRc/sss...s
Syntax
Group G, H
c = int
Number of dot lines in the logo matrix. Maximum number of lines: 65535.
s = hex
Coding of a dot line in the logo matrix.
The parameter s consists of a sequence of hexadecimal digits (hex
numbers). Permitted value range for each of the hex numbers: 00 to FD.
The values FE and FF are reserved for control characters as described
below.
Start-Code
The start code must stand at the beginning of the data for a dot line. A dot
line which is to be printed several times in succession only needs to be
entered once with the start code FF. The number after FF shows how often
the line is to be repeated. Example: the start code FF04 produces four
identical lines.
FE (hex):
FF (hex):
start code for lines which are to be printed once.
start code for lines which are to be printed repeatedly.
End-Code
The last dot line in a logo matrix must be closed with the end code FE.
RLE-Format
The decisive factor when converting binary code into RLE format is the
changing from ones to zeros and vice-versa. In order to convert binary
code into RLE format, it is only necessary to count the sequential zeros and
ones between the start and end code and to note them as hex numbers.
Single figure hex numbers are prefixed with a zero.
Example: Binary code: 0001111001111111
RLE code: FE03040207FE
(start code FE, 03 zeros, 04 ones, 02 zeros, 07 ones, end code
FE if no other dot lines follow)
To enter the Code in RLE-Format as shown in the example, you need to
a) use an editor providing a hex-mode option and b) enable the hex-mode.
Using an editor without hex-mode would require to enter the corresponding
ASCII-character to every hex number, for example instead of 03.

Dot-Line
MANUAL EASY PLUG
All devices
Commands
The actual data of a dot line is contained in pairs of hex numbers between
the start and end code. The first hex number of the pair gives the number of
consecutive zeros, the second hex number gives the number of
consecutive ones.
Example: 05FC (05 zeros, 252 ones)
If the number of zeros or ones in the binary code exceeds 253, a new pair
of hex numbers must be started (the correspondences of the numbers 254
and 255 are the start codes FE and FF).
Example: Binary code: 262 ones, 3 zeros, 1 one
RLE code: FE00FD00090301
(start code FE, 00 zeros, FD ones, 00 zeros, 09 ones, 03 zeros,
01 ones)
The 262 ones are divided into two value pairs because there are more than
253: 00FD and 0009. As the binary code does not have any zeros at the
beginning, the first byte in the first and second value pair is a zero.
Line length
RLE lines can be of any length.
Blank lines
A single blank line has the form FE0000.
Several blank lines are represented as follows: start code FF, followed by
the number of required blank lines.
Example: FF04 (04 blank lines in sequence); FF01 = FE0000 (one blank
line)
No zeros are required after FFxx (with xx blank lines). The start code for
the next line can follow directly afterwards.

(Default setting) No update. The time is read into the variable once. This is
done during the compilation of the layout.
The time is read repeatedly during the running print job. This happens
immediately after printing the relevant output field (#VW…), but counts only
for the same field on the next label.
The setting is not suitable for dispensers.
Reason: If the next label is printed considerably later (e.g. in single-start
mode with footswitch), the following happens: The output field on label 2
contains the time, at which the same field on label 1 was printed.
Example: Label 1 is printed at 10.50 h, label 2 at 11.03 h. In this case, the
imprint of label 2 shows the time 10.50!

variable data are text fields and bar code fields. The variable data field
must be made known to the printer before the command #YV is used (see
#YT, #YB).
To draw a maximum benefit of the printers performance, print jobs should
send the variable data for the #YV field in the same order in which the fields
are printed. Thus, the fields can be updated while printing. Otherwise, the
printer has to wait with updating, until the respective #YV field is printed,
what can slow down the throughput!
Variable data fieds may not be combined with counting fields!
#YVzn/TEXT#G
Syntax
Groups E, G, H

#Z
Mirroring
Creating a mirror image
Definition
The command #Z allows mirror images of texts, bar codes, logos, lines and
rectangles to be created.
All fields which stand before the command are mirrored.
The mirror axis is the centre axis of the label in relation to the label width
given in the command #IM.
Group H:
The label width indicated in the #IM command is rounded up to a multiple of
2.66 mm (32/12 mm). The mirroring axle is the center of the label related to
the rounded up label width.
Command must stand between #ER and #Q!
Syntax
#Z
All groups
Misprints occur with update fields such as number field, clock, line repeat
and Easyline!
Group H: If the example printjob is printed repeatedly in standalone mode,
only the first printjob will contain mirrored text. The following printjobs will
show the text unmirrored.
Example
#!A1
#IMN64/100
#ERN
#G -------------------------------------------#G Mirrored text
#G -------------------------------------------#T5#J5#YT106////Mirror
