7.0 Thermal Paper - Theory & Specification
Refer to the BOCA Systems website at www.bocasystems.com, THERMAL TICKETS section for the
most current paper specifications.
The print head’s life expectancy is composed of both a mechanical and an electrical component. Both of these factors are
strongly influenced by the quality of the thermal paper used.
MECHANICAL
The print head has a theoretical rating of 60 kilometers. This number is based upon the assumption that the head will be
used with a good quality, top coated thermal paper. Uncoated and poorly top coated thermal papers are abrasive to the
print head and have been found to wear through the head after less than one kilometer.
Other factors which may contribute to premature mechanical wear are the use of non-thermal inks and stray metallic
particles stuck in ticket perforations. Certain inks colors such as opaque white (which contains titanium dioxide) are also
highly abrasive.
Unfortunately, there are no available devices for quantitatively measuring the abrasiveness of a given ticket. Fortunately,
we have developed a slightly subjective, but effective method of weeding out overly abrasive ticket stock.
ELECTRICAL
Each heat element, dot, on the print head has a theoretical life expectancy of 100 million activations. This is based on the
assumption that each activation will cause the dot temperature to approach the dot’s maximum recommended
temperature. Running at lower temperatures will increase the theoretical life expectancy, while slight temperature
increases will seriously (exponentially) degrade the head life.
The thermal paper can affect the electrical head life in two ways. Insensitive, slow papers will typically encourage the
user to increase the voltage to darken the printed image. This will directly increase the head temperature resulting in
reduced head life. Additionally, the higher temperatures will frequently cause the ink to peel off the ticket and deposit onto
the print head. The ink debris will disrupt the normal transfer of heat from the head to the paper. This further increases
the head temperature above the desired level. The use of non-thermal inks and/or non-top coated papers also will cause
the ink to release and deposit on the print head.
SPECIFICATION
Based upon the above technical information, BOCA has always tried to encourage our customers to use the proper
thermal papers to maximize the life of their print heads. BOCA provides an extensive series of papers which meet the
above criteria for low abrasion and high sensitivity. We have also tested and approved a number of Ricoh thermal papers
which meet our criteria. While we have not had the opportunity to test other manufacturers’ thermal papers, we feel
confident that other papers manufactured with the above goals in mind should be acceptable for use in our printers. The
following list of papers have been approved by BOCA.

8.0 Maintenance
Your ticket printer is solidly constructed and requires minimal care to provide maximum service.
WARNING: The appearance of this symbol indicates the proximity of an
exposed high voltage area. Please follow all directions carefully for your
personal safety. You must read the following safety information carefully
before working on the printer.
This section provides an overview of printer maintenance.
For discussion purposes, the printer consists of three major modules or assemblies:
• Paper path and print head assembly
• Cutter
• Logic board
As a safety precaution, all service to the printer should be done by qualified persons with
power off and the AC cord unplugged from the printer. Following any procedure requiring the
removal of covers and/or doors, please verify that they have been properly attached and
fastened prior to operating the printer.
Routine maintenance should normally be done at least once a year. Maintenance will need to be done more
often in higher usage or dirty environments. The following review those components that require maintenance:
Click here to return to > Table of Contents

8.2 THERMAL PRINT HEAD
The print head should be cleaned periodically to prevent debris from building up on the print element. The required
cleaning interval varies greatly depending on the quality of the ticket stock and the amount of dust entering the print area.
Excessive dirt build up on the print head will result in reduced quality. Continuing to run the print head in a dirty condition
will reduce its life expectancy, as it is unable to diffuse its heat properly.
The thermal print head can easily be accessed for cleaning or replacement, as follows:
1. Make sure power is off and the AC cord is disconnected from the power pack.
2. DO NOT UNPLUG CABLE FROM PRINT HEAD.
3. Open the print head by push back on the Print Head lock/ cutter guard to unlock the print head. Photo A
4. Lift up on the head mounting assembly/ thermal head and tilt back. Photo B
5. Clean the thermal print head surface (the side that makes contact with the paper) with isopropyl alcohol. Photo C
6. Gently lower the head mounting assembly/ thermal head and push down to center to lock in place.
7. The printer in now ready for operation. If the print quality is still poor then the thermal head needs to be replaced.
8. To replace print head (part number 200C3), gently remove the two head cable connector from print head and then
remove
print head from mounting plate by removing two Philip head screws.

8.3 Platen (Rubber Driver Roller)
The Platen (rubber drive roller) should be cleaned once a year to prevent paper dust from building up on the
roller. (NOTE: The platen may require more frequent cleaning in dusty environments or when using inferior
ticket stock.)
1. Make sure power is off and the AC cord is disconnected from the printer
2. Unlock the cam lock lever and remove head mounting assembly/ thermal head. (Refer to section 8.1.2 Thermal
Print Head).
3. Apply a small amount of Isopropyl alcohol onto a paper towel to clean the rubber roller.
4. Clean only the part of the rubber roller where the ticket stock makes contact with.
5. Rotate the rubber roller clockwise a little and repeat step 4; continue in the same manner for one full revolution of
the rubber roller.

8.4 Cutter Assembly
The BOCA cutter system is a fully integrated cutter knife mechanism powered by a stepper motor.
The cutter requires no adjustments and is rated for approximately 750,000 cuts. Please be aware of
the following:
Wait five seconds before feeding ticket stock into the printer after power up. During this time the
cutter knife will move up and down. If ticket stock is fed into the printer before five seconds, a ticket
jam could occur.
The cutter area should be blown out with air periodically to prevent debris from building up inside the
cutter area. The required cleaning interval varies greatly depending on the quality of the ticket stock
and the amount of paper dust entering the cutter area.

Boca Systems FGL Printer Driver Modes
There are adjustments that can be made to driver options available to accommodate the various ticketing systems. As described
below, there are three modes in which the Boca Systems FGL printer drivers will operate.
1.
Spool-Uni – Unidirectional mode: BIDI support is OFF and Spooler is ON. The printer monitor is turned off so no
status is returned from the printer to the application. In this mode the current bidirectional drivers (version 3.0.6.0) will
operate just as the version 2.0.2.0 standard drivers released in 2010. In this mode a printer can be set up as a shared
network and be reached from web applications. This is the default mode the configure and test program will come up in.
2.
Direct-BiDi – Bidirectional Direct mode: BIDI support is ON and Spooler is OFF. This mode is used by ticketing
systems that want to read all status generated by the FGL printer. With constant monitoring of the status, a ticketing
system can always know the state of the printer before sending the next ticket. In this mode a printer can be used local
to the PC only.
3.
Spool-BiDi – Bidirectional Spool mode: BIDI support is ON and Spooler is ON. This is the default mode for the
newest Boca Systems drivers come up in if no changes are made. In this mode the spooler is used to write to the
printer. This mode is required for applications that use a print monitor. A printer/port monitor is used to read status back
from the printer and maintain some of the operating systems variables contained within the PRINTER_INFO_2 &
PRINTER_INFO_6 structures. Ticketing systems can now read these variables to see when the printer is Ready,
Jammed, Out of stock or Offline. In this mode a printer can be set up as a shared network printer and reached from
web applications.

APPENDIX C – DOWNLOADING SOFTWARE COMMANDS
Menu setting changes may be done by utilizing the software commands listed below. This is best done using
configure and test program for Windows (see Appendix B) or our customer program for MAC (see APPLE/ MAC
BASED SYSTEM).
If needed, the printer may be defaulted back to its originally factory settings as follows. With the printer
powered off hold down the TEST button and then power up the printer. Keep the TEST button held down for
10 seconds and release (the printer will reset at this time).
Once the customer program is running and is connected to the printer, click on the “Send Text” button. For the
MAC customer program under the Select Printer Operation choose “Send Text Commands”.
Once the Text Data box comes up you type the text command in the Data input box. Then click on the OK
button and the text data will be sent to the printer.
When the Lemur-Z leaves the factory it is configured for us with receipt rolled stock (stock with no black
timing mark). If you are using the printer with stock that has a black timing mark then it will need to be
taken out of paper mode. See Appendix C – DOWNLOADING SOFTWARE COMMANDS to download the
appropriate software command.

<pmd> this will configured the printer for use with ticket stock with a black timing mark.

<pme> this will configured the printer for use with receipt stock without a black timing mark.
The printer will reset upon receipt of one of the two above mentioned software commands.
The below commands are available for the Lemur-Z configuration.
<kec#> Kiosk eject count. The default value is 80. This is the number of steps taken to move the ticket to eject
point where it will retracted if not removed within the timeout period. Usually, this number should not be
modified but if the ticket does not retract properly then it may need to be adjusted to ensure proper retraction.
<ket#> Kiosk eject timeout command. The default value is 3 seconds.
<kem#> Kiosk eject mode configuration command. Each bit represents a different configuration option.
BIT0 LOOP BIT -> clear - loop ticket inside, set - no loop
BIT1 NAK BIT -> clear - no NAK, set - NAK on trashed ticket.
BIT2 MOTOR BIT -> clear - small platen motor, set - larger platen motor (For factory use only)
BIT3 EJECT BIT -> clear - present ticket to be pulled out, set - eject ticket immediately
