PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
This label printer is a high-performance, low-cost direct thermal/thermal transfer labeling system. Its
user-friendly design and affordable price set a new standard for the Desktop Label Printer in retail,
office, industrial, and many other applications.
The printer is designed with the most efficient memory management technology - True Speed and
prints at a speed of 2 to 3 inches per second. When bundled with its smart printer driver, the user can
easily print out bar codes, texts and graphics from any editing application (e.g. CodeSoft, BarTender)
under Windows 95/98/2000 and NT. All popular bar codes and fonts are resident in the printer
memory to handle versatile applications.
The solidly designed mechanism allows quick and easy media (paper) and ribbon loading. The
optional Peel and Present and Cutter provide the alternatives of fan-fold label and continuous paper
handling.
This printer is a compact, highly integrated, high performance and high resolution on-site labeling
system.
The User’s Guide will help you understand basic operations of the printer such as set-up, installation,
configuration and maintenance. Before reading the manual you should first identify your printer
model. To determine the model and serial number of your printer, look at the label located on the
bottom of the printer.
