Introduction
Description
This manual contains installation, operation, and maintenance information for the Zebra ZXP
Series 8 Card Printers manufactured by Zebra Technologies Corporation.
Zebra ZXP Series 8 Card Printers use reverse transfer printing technology to create photoquality and over-the-edge images on plastic identification cards. Zebra’s reverse transfer
printers provide fast throughput and a range of encoding options for a variety of markets
and applications.
This manual describes single-sided and dual-sided ZXP Series 8 Card Printers and
dual-sided ZXP Series 8 Card Printers with either a single-sided or dual-sided Laminator.
The single-sided Laminator lays down and seals a laminating film on the top surface of the
printed card for added security; the dual-sided Laminator lays down and seals laminating film
on both the top and bottom surfaces of the printed card.
References to “the laminator” in this document apply to either the single-sided or the dualsided Laminator.

Loading Cards
Caution • DO NOT bend cards or touch print surfaces as this can reduce print quality.
The surface of the cards must remain clean and dust free. Always store cards in an
enclosed container. Ideally, use cards as soon as possible.
Step 1. Remove the wrapping from the card deck.
Step 2. Holding the card deck by the sides (do not touch the print surfaces), hold it
vertically against a flat surface such as a desktop. If the deck is too thick for your
hand to hold it comfortably, use about half a deck at a time.
Step 3. Push the stack back and forth to an angle of about 45° from vertical, so as to separate
all of the cards.
Note • Static charges and edge burrs from the card die-cutting process can render individual
cards stuck together with significant adhesion force. These cards must be physically separated
from each other before inserting into the feeder; if not separated, feeding or printing problems
may occur.
Step 4. Restore the card stack to its original squared-off condition.
Step 5. Open the Input Hopper Door.
Step 6. Place the cards in the Input Hopper in the orientation as shown (smartcard contacts, if
present, up and toward the body of the printer; mag stripe, if present, down and to the
rear). Ensure that the cards are seated flat on the bottom of the hopper.
Step 7. Close the Input Hopper Door.

Sharing Tab
On the Sharing tab (Sharing Property Page), you can choose to share the printer over the
network and install additional drivers to accommodate different operating systems.
To access the Sharing tab, select Start > Devices and Printers. Right click on the Zebra ZXP
Series 8 Card Printer listing. Select Properties > Sharing. Click on the Change Sharing
Options button to enable this tab.
Printer sharing tasks that you can perform include:
•
To share a printer, select the Share this printer radio button; and specify a name for the
shared resource. Click OK when you are finished.
•
To change the shared name, simply enter a new name in the Share name field; and
click OK.
•
To quit sharing a printer, deselect the Share this printer radio button. Click OK
when you are finished.
Drivers: If this printer is shared with users running different versions of Windows, you may
want to install additional drivers, so that the users do not have to find the print driver when
they connect to the shared printer. Click on the Additional Drivers button.
For Printer Sharing Configurations and Advanced Sharing Settings, refer to Appendix C
for details.

Ports Tab
Use the Ports tab to specify the computer port to which the printer is connected. This will have
been established at the initial installation of the printer.
To access the Ports tab, select Start > Devices and Printers. Right click on the Zebra ZXP
Series 8 Card Printer listing. Select Properties > Ports.
An exception to this is if you wish to use printer pooling, the ability to distribute print jobs to
multiple printers.
To enable printer pooling, select the Enable printer pooling checkbox, then check the
additional ports boxes. Each port should have a single Zebra printer installed on it. All the
pooled printers must be identical models with the same configuration (e.g., all with YMC
front, K back); and each must have its own printer driver installed.
Now, when you print to the “main printer” (that is, whichever printer you right-clicked in
Devices and Printers to get to this screen), this printer will get print jobs until it has buffered as
many jobs as it can take. The remaining jobs will then “spill over” to other printers until all
printers in the pool are busy.

The Advanced tab determines the spooling (queuing) of print jobs and determines how
spooled jobs are handled relative to the most recent job.
To access the Advanced tab, select Start > Devices and Printers. Right click on the Zebra ZXP
Series 8 Card Printer listing. Select Properties > Advanced.
You can make the printer always available by selecting the Always available radio button, or
you can limit availability by selecting the Available from radio button and specifying the
“Available from” and “To” times. Click the Apply button, and then the OK button.
To enable spooling: Select the radio button labeled Spool print documents so program
finishes printing faster.
•
Select Start printing after last page is spooled if you want the entire document to be
spooled before printing begins. This option ensures that the entire document is sent to the
print queue before printing. If for some reason printing is canceled or not completed, the
job will not be printed.
•
Select Start printing immediately if you want printing to begin immediately when the print
device is not already in use. This option is preferable when you want print jobs to be
completed faster or when you want to ensure that the application returns control to users
as soon as possible.
To disable spooling: Select the radio button labeled Print directly to the printer.

Card type in use allows the user to specify the type of card being used. Based on the
selection, the printer automatically adjusts the transfer roller temperature and input
and output transfer speed for optimum print quality.
If none of the provided card types matches the actual user card type, or you are unable

whether it is Single or Dual sided), whether Top Laminate and/or Bottom Laminate is
installed (and if so what type it is), and allows the user to change the Lamination mode
on a per-job basis.
The Lamination modes are as follows:
-
Default: Operates as configured. Card Destination must be set to Output Hopper.
-
Top: Set if both the top and bottom laminates are installed, and you only want to
laminate the top.
-
Bottom: Set if both the top and bottom laminates are installed, and you only want to
laminate the bottom.
-
Top and Bottom: Set if both the top and bottom laminates are to be used.
-
Pass-through: Allows a card to pass through the laminator without having laminate
applied. Note that the laminate must be removed from the laminator for this option
to work.
- Any: Set if the laminate, currently installed in the printer (top only, bottom only, top
and bottom, or none), is to be used.
-
Laminate only can be used to laminate pre-printed cards. This is a special-purpose
function that is enabled when the Lamination mode is set to Top, Bottom, or Top and
bottom and the Card destination is set to Output hopper. When this option is selected,
the card is passed from the input hopper, through the printer without being printed, to
the laminator for lamination, then to the output hopper.
If the laminate installed does not match the Lamination mode, then a Lamination Mode
Mismatch error will occur. To resolve the error, either the laminate will need to be
installed/removed; or the Lamination mode will need to be changed.

The Black Panel Options pop-up window allows you to manage and configure the use of the

side as the Y, M, and C panels (e.g. YMCK Front / K Back).
To access the Advanced Black Panel Options pop-up window, select Start > Devices and

preferences > Card Setup.
From the Card Setup tab, select a Ribbon Combination that has YMC and K all on the same
side. The Front K Extraction… and/or Back K Extraction... buttons will become active. Press
the appropriate button to open up the pop-up window. The figure below shows settings for the
front side of the card; settings for the back side of the card are identical.
To extract black areas from color images (use the K panel instead of the Y, M, and C panels),
several selections must be made:
•
82
Select black panel extraction type:
-
Disable black extraction does not use the K panel for any part of the image. This
selection will have the effect of rendering all black images as YMC composite.
-
Print YMC composite and K black uses both the K panel and the Y, M, and C
panels to print the portions of the image that are identified as black. This selection will
result in a dark, black image; but the edges will be smooth (due to YMC printed under
the K), not the sharp edges typically desired for a barcode.
-
Print all black data uses only the K panel to print the portions of the image that are
identified as being black. Note that the areas that are identified as black are based on
the threshold selections made in the black level area in the black extraction from color
images area; see Page 84.

Reasons and Behavior for Black Panel Extraction
This section covers special handling of black data specified on the “Black Panel (K)” tab
and applies only to surfaces of the card on which both YMC (color) and K (black) are to
be printed.
To print black during the print process, equal amounts of process colors Y, M, and C (printer
ribbon panels) are delivered, with maximum intensity, to create a near-black image.
•
However, this “composite” image appears as a dark shade of gray and not machine
readable. For example, a visually-black barcode printed with Y, M and C will not be
detectable by most barcode readers and is not a true Visible Black color.
•
The remedy for this is to “extract the black.” In other words, print the same text, graphics,
or barcode, using the K (black) panel, on top of the YMC barcode. (You can also choose to
print only in K, omitting YMC from that region.)
Depending on the application used to design the card layout, different elements of the card
image may be identified in different ways to the printer driver. The printer driver needs to
recognize four types of basic elements:
1. Black text
2. Black (monochrome) graphics -- lines, circles, rectangles, and area fills
3. Black monochrome bitmap images
These elements may not always be sent to the driver as expected. For example, a barcode may
be sent as black text, a series of black area fills, or a black monochrome bitmap. Results will
depend on the application used to create the card design. Another variable, again controlled by
the card design application, is the precedence (stacking order) of the various element types in
the event that one or more of them overlap.

If the printer is set up to print both YMC and K on the same side, text, lines and pixels, area
fills and monochrome bitmaps, if (and only if) designated black by the application, can be
directed to the K panel. For this to happen, the graphic type in question has to be selected on
the “Black Panel (K)” tab. For text, lines and pixels, area fills and monochrome bitmaps the
designation “black” is set at RGB values of 0,0,0. This threshold can be adjusted up to
25,25.25, with the Black level slider adjustment. Near-black doesn’t qualify.
In the Black Panel (K) tab, the “element selection” portion is straightforward – simply
designate any or all of the four graphic types to be printed in K, either K alone, or over process
black (YMC).
In the Black Panel (K) tab, the “element selection” portion is straightforward – simply
designate any or all of the four graphic types to be printed in K, either K alone, or over process
black (YMC).
Black extraction is quite different. It applies only to the fourth graphic type – the color bitmap
image.To perform black extraction, the driver generates a K image by looking for black
features (pixels) in the color bitmap, that is, instances where all three YMC values are at, or
close to, the maximum (full intensity). Each such true-black or near-black instance generates a
corresponding cluster of black pixels in the extracted image, which will be printed with the
K (black) panel either on top of the YMC image, or replacing it entirely – your choice.
A problem that can arise when K is extracted from an entire card image is over-emphasis of
every black cluster; e.g., dark hair in a portrait photo or scenic background. K overprinting in
such areas can be displeasing. To deal with this, set up exclusion zones within which no
extraction is performed. Six such areas are provided for on each side of the card,
independently. In the default state, all areas are null (0,0 offsets, and zero size).
There is a choice of black extraction within the defined areas or outside the defined areas; see
Print black with K panel: 84 for details.

Monochrome Conversion
The monochrome panels in the ribbon can only print binary (pure on or off) images.
Monochrome conversion is used to convert continuous tone 8-bit-per-pixel RGB or gray
image content into binary1-bit-per-pixel content.
•
Color Image
The sample image to the right is the original color image used
to make the following monochrome conversions.
•
Dither error diffusion (default)
Error diffusion is used primarily where you have a full color
(RGB image with 8 bits per pixel) or full gray (single color but
still 8 bits per pixel) that you need to print with binary printing
(can only print full-on or full-off; i.e., 1 bit per pixel).
Typically preferred over halftoning for most images.
•
Dither 6x6 halftoning and Dither 8x8 halftoning
To simulate gray in graphics, halftones are printed. Halftones
are arrays of dots arranged in a grid (e.g., 6x6 or 8x8) to
represent each image pixel as a shade of gray. For dark gray,
more grid dots are black. For light gray, more grid dots are
white As the grid size goes up so does the number of possible
output levels, 6x6 cell has 36 possible output levels while 8x8
has 64. But as cell size increases, there is a corresponding
decrease in resolution.
•
Dither pure black on white
This is the simplest method for converting from 8 bits per pixel
to 1 bit per pixel.
For example, the input pixel can be a value from 0 to 255. If
the threshold is 128, any pixel over 128 becomes full on (1);
and any pixel that is less than 128 becomes full off (0). This
mode works best for text, barcodes, line art, logos -everything except continuous-tone pictures.

•
Send as grayscale
This mode can be used when you have black anti-aliased text.
Black anti-aliased text is typically black in the center; but on
the edges, it has shades of gray that get lighter as you move out
form the center of the text. This anti-aliased text will have a
softer looking edge that is less sharp than non anti-aliased text.
For electronic displays and printers that print continuous tones,
anti-aliased text looks and prints better. For K-printing, the
driver usually performs monochrome conversion to convert the image to binary; but then
the printer has to convert it back to gray so it can be run through the imaging path.
With the “send as grayscale” mode enabled, converting the K-panel to binary is skipped so
the extra information contained with anti-aliased text is retained; and it prints K with a
slightly smoother edge. If the input K text is not anti-aliased, the text will look the same
with this mode as it would with the dither pure black and white mode.
SUMMARY
Error diffusion/halftoning: Use on pictures. Image content dictates if error diffusion or
halftoning would look best. For the majority of time, error diffusion is better.
Dither pure black and white: Use on text, barcodes, line art, and simple graphics.
Send as grayscale: Use with black anti-alised text.

Preheat: Adjustment ranges from -50 to 50, default = 0. Increasing the preheat value
affects the entire image and will darken up edges of fonts, fine lines, and color edges that

value too much can cause the white or near white images to print with as light color cast.
Increasing the preheat might also improve color-to-color mis-registration that may occur
for certain images.

Wireless Settings
Note • Access to this feature is controlled via Advanced Security > Security Roles.
The Wireless Settings screen allows you to connect a printer to a wireless network, or change
the printer or network settings after you have installed the printer.
For details on the functionality of this screen, refer to the Wireless Reference Manual,
P/N P1035089-001.
There are two approaches that can be used to configure the printer's wireless settings:
114
•
If all the necessary information is known (SSID, BSSID, Channel, Security, Encryption
and Key), enter these parameters directly into the Wireless Configuration.
•
The alternate approach is to request that the printer scan for wireless access points and
select one. This automatically fills in most of the Wireless Configuration parameters.

• Print Performance Setting: Performance options from the dropdown menu include:
-
No error recovery (None): The printer provides high throughput with a hands-off
error recovery policy. This allows the host to have full control over how jobs are
retried, if at all. In this mode, there can be more than one job in the system at any
time. If there is any job in the system (i.e., printer or laminator) and an error occurs,
the job will not be automatically retried by the system after the error is cleared. In
addition, jobs already in the printer that were sent after the job that had the error are
aborted. Jobs ahead of the one with the error are not affected and are allowed to
proceed to completion if possible. This mode would be used in applications requiring,
for example, uniquely-serialized cards and having no automated means of validating
the mating of a job to a card.
-
Standard error recovery (Medium): The printer provides high throughput with a
reasonable-effort error recovery policy. In this mode, there can be more than one job
in the system at any time. If a job suffers an error it will be automatically retried after
the error is cleared. Card jams, for example, are handled this way – after the printer is
opened, the jammed card removed, and the printer closed and re-initialized, a fresh
card is fed and the job reprocesses without host intervention. Jobs ahead of the job
that had the error are not affected and are allowed to proceed to completion if
possible. Jobs behind the one with the error are paused until the error is cleared, and
then they also proceed to completion.
-
Full error recovery (High): The printer provides reduced throughput so that it can
recover any job automatically. In this mode, only one job is allowed into the system at
a time; and if a job errors anywhere in the system, the job will automatically be retried
by the system after the error is cleared.
• Transfer Temperature Offset:
Transfer Temperature Offset is provided to globally change the temperature of the
heated rollers.
If you have a single card type and you want to change the roller temperatures, you
would use custom card type; see Card Setup Tab on page 79.
If the printer seems to be running too cold or too hot for every card type, you would
use this adjustment to raise or lower the heated roller temperature for all cards. While
you will not see a change in card parameters for a given card type when using the
Transfer Temperature Offsets, you will see the change in the OCP Info screen that
shows the temperature set-points and current temperatures.
The adjustment range is: Minimum -10, Maximum 10.

• Print Position:
Film print X offset (dots): This is the number of dots (300 dpi / ~3 mils/dot) to shift
the image along the long axis to align it on the card; see figure below. This parameter

Resistance (Minimum: 3150 ohms, Maximum: 3850 ohms): When you replace the
printhead, change this value to match the resistance of the replacement printhead.
Note that the values must be the same for the algorithms to work properly. This value
is located on a sticker on the printhead; e.g., R = 3380. The printhead resistance is also
written on the inspection report shipped with each printer.

B.4.1 Adjustment Overview
When making adjustments, be aware that interdependencies exist between parameters; e.g.,
parameter changes which reduce warp could induce partial transfer.
There are four basic parameters to control, and these parameters differ for single-sided printing
and dual-sided printing for each card type:
•
Input transfer speed (speed in)
•
Output transfer speed (speed out)
•
Front transfer temperature (upper roller temperature)
•
Back transfer temperature (lower roller temperature)
Speeds are in inches per second (ips), and temperatures are in degrees Celsius (C).
It is very helpful to think about the energy being put into the card as opposed to just
temperature. Speed parameters are the “big knobs” for adjusting energy, while temperature
parameters are the “fine tuning knobs.” Slowing down only 0.1 ips has almost twice the
energy-increasing effect as raising the temperature 5oC. In terms of energy:
•
Far too little energy = no transfer at all
•
Not enough energy = partial transfer
•
Too much energy = card warp
•
Far too much energy = card jams caused by severe warp
With respect to speeds, going slower in can help guarantee good transfer, while going faster
out can prevent the already-transferred card from remaining hot long enough to soften,
weaken, warp, and possibly even jam. Usually, the most reliable and stable speed settings
range between 1.2 ips and 2.6 ips, with lower generally being better for most card types.
With respect to temperatures, a top temperature which is slightly higher than the
corresponding bottom temperature normally works well for dual-sided transfer. For singlesided transfer, there will be significantly lower temperatures for the back side of the card to
avoid accidental transfer. In general, a lower temperature difference between the front and
back sides will induce fewer warming/cooling cycles in the printer.

B: Setting Custom Card Specifications
To compensate for interdependency issues, try adjusting the parameters in the following order:
Step 1. Start by correcting any partial transfer issues by using the procedure outlined in
Section B.4.2.
Step 2. Then attempt to improve warpage by using the procedure outlined in Section B.4.3.
Start with acceptable settings from Step 1. While adjusting parameters, ensure that the
transfer quality remains acceptable. Do not continue reducing temperatures or
increasing speeds if the transfer quality becomes unacceptable.
Additional considerations and information:
The thermal conductivity of the card fundamentally influences retransfer performance. Card
characteristics affecting retransfer include:
•
Single-layer vs. multi-layer construction (homogeneous vs. composite materials) –
for homogeneous cards, warp is often lowest when equal energy is put into each side
of the card, while such is not usually true for non-homogeneous cards made of a mix
of metals and plastics due to the widely different thermal properties of the materials,
•
Surface finish – glossy vs. matte,
•
Whether the card has a magnetic stripe – more prone to warp, especially lowcoercivity (LoCo) cards identifiable by a brown stripe instead of the common highcoercivity black stripe, and
•
Whether the card is a smart card – often containing asymmetrically-distributed,
thermally conductive, dissimilar components which can make warp reduction
more challenging.
Even cards sold as ‘typical’ PVC may not all be similar in terms of retransfer behavior, given
their exact binders, fillers, pigmentations, and other materials ratios. While many competitive
retransfer printers tend to disavow PVC because it can be difficult to use in their retransfer
printers, a prime ZXP Series 8 advantage is the ability to successfully retransfer to economical
PVC cards.

Setting Up Printer Pooling
Printer Pooling is a standard feature of Windows, which lets you spread your printed output
across a pool of several printers. In this example, we will install and setup the three network
printers to be used for pooling.
Step 1. Before proceeding to pool the printers, test them individually, and be sure they are
configured similarly. Specifically, check the following:
•
•
•
Ribbon panel configuration (ribbon type, and what prints on which side of
the card).
Mag encoding configuration.
Black extraction configuration (if applicable).
Step 2. Access the Ports Tab.
To access the Ports tab, select Start > Devices and Printers. Right click on the Zebra
ZXP Series 8 Card Printer listing. Select Properties > Ports.

Using the Printer Pool
Note • Send print jobs to the printer pool, not to an individual printer.
When the first printer has taken as many jobs as it can handle (that being two jobs - one to be
printed immediately, the other waiting), the following jobs “spill over” to the second printer,
and then to the third printer.
Note that if you are only printing two jobs, they would both go to the first printer. Pooling is
a spill-over methodology. It does not balance printer usage.
Once the pool has been set up, maintenance and configuration changes should be done
through the menus for each individual printer, not through the pool (which can produce
undesirable results).
Important • The effect of any maintenance and/or changes can (and should) be tested by
sending print jobs separately to each printer, not to the pool.

Introduction
This Appendix provides information about installing and connecting a Zebra ZXP Series 8
Card Printer (with the Wireless Option) to a wireless network.

D: Wireless Network Operations
Installing the Printer
Caution • Only use the antenna that is shipped with the printer to ensure regulatory
compliance for the transmit power.
A printer with the wireless option ships with the wireless radio pre-installed in the printer. An
antenna is shipped in the box with the printer. The antenna must be connected to the rear of the
printer before using the wireless interface. Lightly push the antenna onto the printer antenna
connector, and rotate the knurled antenna connector until finger tight.
The antenna orientation is important to maximize the wireless signal strength. Inspect the
access point antenna(s), and try to put the printer antenna in a similar orientation. After
connecting the printer to the wireless network, the antenna orientation can be adjusted to
maximize signal strength.
As the distance between the printer and the access point increases, the signal strength
decreases. If there are intervening walls, unpredictable signal strength attenuation will occur.
Decreasing signal strength results in automatic data rate reduction. At the longest distance,
network traffic can become very slow.
Printer location is important to ensure that adequate signal strength is achieved. Follow
these suggestions:
•
Position the printer as close to the access point that it will connect to as possible.
•
If possible, orient the printer such that there is a clear line of sight between the printer
antenna and the access point antenna.
•
Locate the printer such that there are no intervening walls in the line of sight between
the antennas.
•
Do not put the printer in a cabinet, especially not a metal one.
•
Do not locate large metal objects close to the printer antenna.
•
Do not locate the printer close to devices that emit RF radiation in the 2.4 GHz range; such
devices might include: microwave ovens, cordless phones, wireless surveillance cameras,
baby monitors, wireless video transmitter and Bluetooth devices, etc.
Configuring the Printer
To configure the printer for wireless printing, refer to the Zebra ZXP Series 8 Card Printer
Wireless Reference Manual, P/N P1035089 or Service Manual, P/N 1013376.

Note • ONLY USE cards that comply with ISO 7810 and 7811 standards for magnetic stripe
cards. The magnetic stripe must be flush to the surface of the card to work properly.
Never use cards which have taped-on magnetic stripes.
Place the cards in the Input Hopper in the correct orientation as shown (with the magnetic
stripe down and facing to the rear). Ensure that the cards are seated properly the hopper.
Magnetic Encoder Cleaning
The Magnetic Encoder is cleaned as part of the printer cleaning process; see Section 6. If the
frequency of encoding errors increases, the head may need additional cleaning. To clean, only
use foam-tipped swabs.
Caution • Never use a sharp object or any abrasive to scrape deposits from the Magnetic
Encoder. Permanent damage to the Magnetic Head will result.

Magnetic Encoding Type
ISO (Default)
The encoder reads and writes standard ISO track data formats in standard ISO track locations.
The following shows the three standard ISO tracks.
Track 1 -- 210 BPI
Track 2 -- 75 BPI
Track 3 -- 210 BPI
Each track can be encoded and decoded with ASCII characters in the standard default ISO
data formats:

The magnetic encoder can read or encode up to 3 tracks of digital information onto CR-80
cards incorporating a HiCo or LoCo magnetic stripe in the ISO 7811 format.
Encoding for the three tracks uses the ISO 7811 format.
•
Track 1 uses 210 BPI (bits per inch) encoding in the International Air Transport
Association (IATA) format of 79 alphanumeric characters, at 7 bits per character.
• Track 2 uses 75 BPI encoding to store 40 numeric characters at 5 bits per character in
American Banking Association (ABA) format.
• Track 3 uses 210 BPI encoding of 107 numeric characters at 5 bits per character in
THRIFT format.
The ISO data formats include a preamble (all zeros), a start character, data (7-bit or 5-bit as
specified by ISO), a stop character, and a longitudinal redundancy check (LRC) character. The
7-bit data format has 6 bits of encoded data and a parity bit. The 5-bit data format has 4 bits of
encoded data and a parity bit.
The ISO data formats include a data field separator (or delimiter) that allows parsing of the
encoded track data. An example of separate data fields would be the ABA data format
(Track 2) that includes a Primary Account Number (PAN) field and an account information
field (for expiration date, country code, etc.).

CUSTOM
If a custom format is desired, the ISO standard format may be used as a starting point. The
standard format can then be modified by assigning different values to any or all of the density,
character, and sentinel attributes. (If any of these attributes is missing, its corresponding
value in the standard ISO format will be substituted.)
BINARY
The binary option allows the user to specify directly the value for each bit on the mag stripe.
In this “direct binary” mode, it is the host’s responsibility to fully populate the magnetic stripe;
i.e., the hex data provided by the host must include the leading zeroes, start sentinel, data, end
sentinel, LRC, and trailing zeroes. Note that the magnetic stripe is encoded from the righthand end as viewed from the “stripe” side, with the stripe uppermost. The least significant bit
of the data is encoded first.
A sufficient number of leading zeroes should be prepended to offset the start sentinel by
approximately 0.3" (7.5 mm) from the right-hand end, as in the ISO format. Care should be
taken to ensure that the payload data does not exceed the capacity of the tracks at their
specified recording densities. (In the binary mode, out-of-range data is not recorded, and no
error condition will result.)
A CR-80 size card has a nominal capacity of 252 bits per track at 75 BPI, and 708 bits at
210 BPI. These capacities equate approximately to 31 hex bytes (248 binary bits) and 88 hex
bytes respectively.
JIS-II
JIS II data format is the Japanese Industrial Standard for magnetic stripe encoding. JIS-II data
format is used to encode a single track on a standard ISO magnetic stripe card.
The JIS II Data Format uses a 7-bit, 128-character set; i.e., the 7-bit ASCII Table with some
entries representing Japanese characters. The JIS II track is wide, covering ISO Tracks 1
and 2.
Encoding is 210 bpi, character size is 8, parity is even, the start sentinel is %, the start sentinel
offset (x0.001”) is 197, and the end sentinel is ?.

Encoder Macro Commands
With ZXP Series 8 printers, we provide support for pass-through mag encoding commands.
The application developer or user can use a preamble or Macro to indicate to the driver that
the data following the Preamble or Macro is to be mag encoded.
The user can have encoding and printing data on the same card, and the driver will filter out
the encoding data from the printing data. The user does not have to know job control syntax or
ZMotif commands to send mag encoding commands to the printer.
Supported Macro commands are:
206
1.
C01<Track1 Data>
C02<Track2 Data>
C03<Track3 Data>

Contact Smart Cards
Contact Smart Cards have a pad of contacts on the surface of the card that connect to the
circuitry embedded into the card.
The printer responds to commands that position the card at the contact location, where the
printer connects to the contacts on the Smart Card. Data to be encoded onto the Smart Card,
and data read from the Smart Card, can interface via a connector on the printer’s rear panel
(Contact Station), or encoding/decoding can be performed by logic on the printer’s Main
PCBA (Contact Encoder).
All other printer operations remain the same.
Media Loading Orientation for Contact Smart Cards
Place the cards in the Input Hopper in the correct orientation as shown (with the gold-plated
Smart Card contacts at the top surface of the card and facing to the left). Ensure that the cards
are seated properly the hopper.

Contactless Smart Cards
Rather than using a contact pad, Contactless Smart Cards use various short-range radio
technologies to “connect” to the printer. The printer moves the card to an antenna location
on the card path, and the encoding or decoding occurs. All other printer operations remain
the same.
Media Loading Orientation for Contactless Smart Cards
For Contactless Smart Cards, orientation is not a consideration.
Printing on Contactless Smart Cards
With reverse transfer printing technology, there are no restrictions when designing material to
be printed on Contactless Smart Cards.
