5.6 Hexadecimal dump
This function is used to diagnose the characters received through the communication port; the characters are printed
out both as hexadecimal codes and ASCII codes.
Once the self-test routine has finished, the printer enters Hexadecimal Dump mode. The printer remains in standby
until a key is pressed or characters are received through the communication port. For example, in the 200 dpi model,
for every 8 characters received, the hexadecimal and corresponding ASCII codes are printed out (if the characters
are underlined, the receive buffer is full). Shown below is an example of a Hexadecimal Dump:

10 ALIGNMENT
Device is provided with sensors for the use of alignment notch in order to handle roll of tickets with pre-printed fields
and a fixed length.
The alignment notch may be formed by
• black mark printed on paper, for 200dpi models (see par.7.5);
• gap between two labels, for 300dpi models (see par.7.6).
The alignment sensors assembled on printer, are “reflection” sensors: this kind of sensor emits a band of light and
detects the quantity of light reflected to it.
The presence of the notch is therefore detected by the amount of light that returns to the sensor, considering that the
light is reflected by the white paper and absorbed by the black mark.
To use tickets with labels with gap, the sensors on 300dpi models are used as “transparence” sensors. In this case,
one of the two sensors coupled two by two, used as transmitter sensor, emits a beam of light and the quantity of light
which reaches the opposite receiver sensor is detected.
The presence of the gap is detected evaluating the amount of light that arrives to the opposite sensor, considering
that the paper doesn’t allow the beam of light to reach the receiver, whereas a gap lets the light to reach the receiver.
The following paragraphs show how to correctly set the configuration parameters of device in order to assure the
alignment.
10.1 Enable alignment
The 200dpi models are provided with a fixed sensor for alignmentment facing the non-thermal side of paper. The
300dpi models are provided with two fixed sensors coupled two by two (see par. 2.2)
To guarantee the alignment, it is necessary to enable the parameter “Notch Alignment” during the Setup procedure
(see chapter 5).

10.2 Calibration
The sensor calibration occurs automatically and consists in adjusting the quantity of light emitted to match the degree
of whiteness of the paper used and the degree of black of the mark printed on paper.
The device automatically performs the self-calibration during the Setup procedure only if the “Notch Alignment” parameter is set on “Enabled” (see chapter 5).
When self-calibration starts, the device performs some paper feeds and then it prints the calibration result and the
value (numeric and as a percentage) of the “Threshold White” parameter that indicates the power-up level of the sensor emitting side (the value ranges from 0V to 5V):
Autosetting Notch : OK
Threshold White : 2,3V [70%]
The “Autosetting Notch” parameter indicates the result of the self-calibration procedure; OK will appear if it has been
successful, NOT OK will appear if the procedure has failed.
After the printing of the procedure result, the device offers the execution of the function of paper characterization
“Characterize Paper” and the change of the “Notch Threshold” parameter which represents the detection threshold
of the notch.
Choosing the “Yes” value for the “Characterize Paper” parameter, the device prints a graphic representation (see following figures) of the outgoing voltage of the alignment sensor (expressed as a percentage) and the “Notch Threshold”
value.
This graphic representation is useful to set the most suitable value to assign to the “Notch Threshold” parameter and
then to better identify the optimal threshold value which takes into account the variations of the signal and the small
oscillations around zero.
The following figure shows an example of paper with the non-thermal paper printed with black marks: the outgoing
voltage is constant while passing the white paper between two notches and presents a peak at each black mark.
In this case, the optimal value for the “Notch Threshold” parameter is placed about half of the peak (as shown in figure).

THERMAL SIDE
The following figure shows an example of paper with the non-thermal paper printed with black marks and other graphics (for example, a barcode): the outgoing voltage is constant while passing the white paper between two notches,
presents a peak at each black mark and presents some “noise” at each barcode.
In this case, the optimal value for the “Notch Threshold” parameter is located about halfway between the peak value
and the maximum value of the “noise” (as shown in figure).

10. ALIGNMENT
If the maximum value of “noise” read by the sensor is very close to the peak value, it might be difficult to place the
value of the “Notch Threshold” at an intermediate point. In these cases, it is mandatory that the portion of paper between the point of printing end and the front notch is completely white (no graphics). In this way, the only next graphic
detected by the sensor for alignment after the printing end will be the notch.
10.3 Alignment parameters
The “alignment point” is defined as the position inside the ticket to use for the notch alignment.
The distance between the notch edge and the alignment point is defined as “Notch Distance”.
If the “Notch Distance” value is set to 0, the alignment point is set at the beginning of the notch.
alignment point = notch front

The value of “Notch Distance” varies from -5mm minimum and 32mm maximum (this value is fix according to the
mechanical distance between notch sensor and printing head).

To set a negative value of the “Notch Distance” parameter is useful in cases where the alignment point refers to the
notch printed on the previous ticket or where the desired cutting line is placed in the middle of the alignment notch (for
example, for paper with holes or gap). In the following images, the value of “Notch Distance” parameter is set to -A.

To define the alignment point you need to set the printer parameters that compose the numerical value of the “Notch
Distance” parameter (see paragraphs 5.4 and 5.5).
For example, to set a notch distance of 15mm between the notch and the alignment point, the parameters must be
set on the following values:
Notch Distance Sign
Notch Distance [mm x 10]
Notch Distance [mm x 1]
:+
:1
:5
The “Notch Distance” parameter, may be modified as follows:
• during the Setup procedure of the device (see chapter 5)
• by using the $1D $E7 command (for more details, refer to the Commands Manual)
• by driver.

10.4 Printing area
In order to print ticket containing only one notch and to not overlay printing to a notch (that will make it useless for
the next alignment), it is important to well calibrate the height of the printing area of ticket according to the inter-notch
distance.
The following figure shows an example of tickets with “Notch Distance” set to 0:

“Non-printable area” = “Distance between cutter/printing head” = 18,7mm (fixed distance)
H
Distance between the first and the last print line, called “Height of the printing area”.
L
Distance between an edge of the notch and the next one, called “Inter-notch distance”.
D
Automatic feed for alignment at the next notch.
To use all the notches on the paper, you must comply with the following equation:
H+A≤L
The height of the printing area (H) can be increased to make no progress on alignment (D = 0) but no further.
