RP6000 Receipt Printer
Installation & Operation Manual
Congratulations on your purchase of a Computrol RP6000 Receipt Printer (PN 90710). Based on Static Thermal Technology, the RP6000 is a highly reliable, userfriendly device designed specifically for Computrol’s C6000 Card-Lock system
and we are confident that you will have many years of trouble-free operation.
Installation
Mounting
The Receipt Printer is designed to be mounted on the left hand side of a C6000
enclosure with 4 bolts.
1. Disconnect all power to the C6000 Pump Control Unit.
2. Drill 4 holes and a slot in the left side of the C6000 Enclosure as per the diagram
below:

5. Bolt the RECEIPT PRINTER ENCLOSURE onto the C6000 ENCLOSURE using
the four ¼” X 1” bolts and ¼” hexnuts supplied.
Right Side Mounting.
If mounting of the RP6000 Receipt Printer on the right-hand side of the C6000 enclosure
is desired, a suitable cover plate must be fashioned and secured to the right-side of the
Receipt Printer in order to cover the holes. Do not forget to apply silicone sealant
around the mounting holes and the slot. Drill new holes and a slot into the left side of the
Receipt Printer Enclosure, and matching holes and a slot in the right side of the C6000.
Wiring
1. Be sure to disconnect all power to the C6000 Pump Control Unit before making
any wiring connections.
2. Wire the Receipt Printer HEATER POWER CABLE (PN 95-557) into the C6000
PCU Power Supply as per the following pictures.
Figure 2 HEATER POWER CABLE (left) and C6000 POWER SUPPLY BOARD (right)
To connect the HEATER POWER CABLE:
a) Remove the 15-position connector: Depress the tabs on both ends, then
pull the connector off the POWER SUPPLY BOARD.
b) Insert the black (line) wire from the HEATER POWER CABLE into
position number four until it locks into place.
c) Insert the green (earth ground) wire from the HEATER POWER CABLE
into position number five until it locks into place.
d) Insert the white (neutral) wire from the HEATER POWER CABLE into
position number 6 until it locks into place.

3. Remove the C6000 PCU POWER CABLE from the RECEPTACLE BOX and
plug it into a socket in the 3-OUTLET CORD (PN 78-001A).
4. Plug the “AC” POWER CORD from the Receipt Printer into a socket in the 3OUTLET CORD.
5. Plug the 3-OUTLET CORD into the RECEPTACLE BOX in the C6000 PCU.
6. Plug the SERIAL CABLE from the printer into the socket labeled J3 on the USER
INTERFACE (UI) board.
7. Ensure that all wiring is secure and neatly out of the way in the C6000 Enclosure.
Typically, there is room to tuck the 3-OUTLET CORD and associated wiring
along the left-hand side of the C6000 Power Supply.

address “1”, the same as the User Interface (UI) board.
Give the printer a “Name” to make it easier to recognize later on.
“Page Eject” should be filled in with an integer number representing the number of
blank lines to be inserted between receipts when printing multiple receipts at one
time.

Servicing the Printer
Lock/Unlock
To open the Receipt Printer, it is necessary to unlock both of the key-locks on the front
door. The locks are unlocked by inserting the key and turning it 90° counter-clockwise.
To lock the Receipt Printer Again, push the Door in all the way. Press the door in firmly
to compress the gasket and then turn each key-lock 90° clockwise.
Paper Loading
Only thermal paper rolls with a maximum diameter of 120mm (4.7”), a width of 60mm
(2.36”), and a maximum paper thickness of 80m should be used with the RP6000
Receipt Printer. Using paper that does not meet these specifications may result in
paper jams and/or damage to the printer mechanism. Damage resulting from the
use of paper not meeting these specifications will not be covered under warranty.
1. Ensure that power is applied to the Receipt Printer.
2. Open the Receipt Printer and slide out the door and the PRINTER MECHANISM.
3. Obtain a fresh PAPER ROLL (PN 94-251). Orient the PAPER ROLL so that the
paper will feed from the top of the roll (see the diagram below), then insert the
loose end into the PAPER ENTRY SLOT. The printer will automatically feed the
paper through the mechanism when the paper is presented.
Figure 10 Correct and Incorrect Paper Loading
4. Pull back on the AXLE LEVER and seat the roll of paper into the right hand
PAPER AXLE. Release the AXLE LEVER, ensuring that the left-hand side of the
paper-roll seats properly on the left-hand PAPER AXLE.

RP6000 Install-Op v1r2.doc
RP6000 Receipt Printer
Installation & Operation Manual
5. Press the PAPER FEED button on the top of the PRINTER MECHANISM to
advance approximately 20cm (8”) of paper through the PRINTER MECHANISM.
6. Push the PRINTER MECHANISM so that it slides back into the ENCLOSURE.
Feed the paper through the PAPER CHUTE opening at the rear of the DOOR
until it can be grasped out the front of the PAPER CHUTE. Then, tension the
paper with one hand while sliding the DOOR back into place.
7. Lock the DOOR before using the printer.
Paper Unloading
It can be desirable to replenish the paper roll before it runs completely out. To do so
follow the steps outlined below:
1. Cut the paper in the PAPER ENTRY SLOT from the remainder of the roll.
2. Use the PAPER FEED button on the top of the PRINTER MECHANISM to
advance the severed paper through the PRINTER MECHANISM and remove it
from the PAPER EXIT SLOT. Do not pull the paper through or try to pull it
backwards from the mechanism.
3. Remove the PAPER ROLL by pulling back on the AXLE LEVER and lifting it out.
4. Load a new PAPER ROLL as outlined above under “Paper Loading”.
Printing a Self-Test Ticket
A Self-Test Ticket can be printed to assist in determining the condition of your Receipt
Printer. To do this, remove power from the unit, unlock the DOOR and extend the
PRINTER MECHANISM out on its slide. Then press the PAPER FEED button and hold
it pressed while re-applying power to the unit. Once the printer goes through its
initialization, which takes a few seconds, it will begin printing a Self-Test Ticket. Once
printing begins, you may release the PAPER FEED button.

Paper Cutter
The PAPER CUTTER normally requires no maintenance, but may be swung open on its
hinges by gently prizing the bottom portion of the cutter out from the PRINTER
MECHANISM should a paper jam occur.
Figure 11 Paper Cutter shown in the open position.
It is not necessary to open the PAPER CUTTER for standard loading. Opening and then
closing the PAPER CUTTER without feeding the paper properly through the blades will
lead to a paper jam. In most cases it is better to remove all paper from the mechanism,
close the PAPER CUTTER, and then use the automatic loading feature of the printer
(see Paper Loading, above) to ensure correct paper feed.
