The user will need to manually move these mobile sensors according to the position and the type of the black mark on
the paper (see next paragraphs).
To use these sensors, you must set the “Notch/B.Mark Position” setup parameter on the correct value (see Chapter 5).

NOTE: Parameter valid only with serial interface.
RS232 PARITY
Bit for the parity control of the serial interface:
None D = parity bit omitted
Even = even value for parity bit
Odd =
odd value for parity bit
NOTE: Parameter valid only with serial interface.
RS232 HANDSHAKING
Handshaking:
XON/XOFF =
Hardware D =
software handshaking
hardware handshaking (CTS/RTS)
NOTES:
Parameter valid only with serial interface.
When the receive buffer is full, if handshaking is set to XON/XOFF, the device sends the XOFF (0x13) on the
serial port. When the receive buffer has cleared once again, if handshaking is set to XON/XOFF, the device
sends the XON (0x11) on the serial port.
BUSY CONDITION
Activation mode for Busy signal:
OffLine/ RXFull = Busy signal is activated when the device is both in OffLine status and
the buffer is full
RXFull D =
Busy signal is activated when the buffer is full
NOTE: Parameter valid only with serial interface.

NOTCH DISTANCE
“Notch Distance” is the minimum distance (in mm) between the upper edge of ticket and
the notch (see chapter 10).
The numeric value of the distance is made up with the following four parameters for the
setting of three digits (two for the integer part of the number, one for the decimal part
and of the sign):
Sign setting:

The parameter “Notch/B.Mark Min. Width” is used to set the notch dimensions in order to avoid that other
graphics present on the ticket can be detected as a Notch/B.Mark.

This parameter enables/disables the block of the paper inside the device where the ticket
is not cut with the cutter, but is presented for the manual tear off by the user:
Disabled D =
Enabled =
paper block disabled

Hexadecimal dump
This function is used for the diagnosis of the characters received from the communications port. Characters are printed as
hexadecimal code and the corresponding ASCII code (see below). Each line is preceded by a counter in hexadecimal that
indicates the number of bytes received.
During the startup, if you hold down the FEED key, the device enters the self-test routine and print the setup report.
The device remains in standby until a key is pressed or characters are received through the communication port (Hexadecimal Dump mode). For each character sent, the ticket shows the hexadecimal value and the ASCII codes (if the characters
are underlined, the receive buffer is full). Shown below is an example of a Hexadecimal Dump:

Character sets in CUSTOM/POS emulation
The device has 3 fonts of varying width (11, 15 and 20 cpi) which may be related one of the coding tables provided on the
device.
To know the coding tables actually present on the device, you need to print the font test (see par.2.6).
You can set font and coding table by using the commands (see the Commands Manual of the device) or using the “Code
Table” and the "Chars / Inch" parameters during the Setup procedure (see par.5.4).
The following is the full list of coding tables that can be installed on the device.

In CUSTOM/POS emulation, it is possible to use TrueType fonts. To be used, a TrueType font must be monospace type
(every character of the font must have the same dimension). The check is made by the device when the font is selected.
TrueType fonts will be automatically scaled by the device in order to obtain the same available width for the embedded
fonts (11, 15 and 20 cpi).
The quality of TrueType fonts, the correct positioning into the printable area and the available code tables, will result from
the font producers and the font implementation.
For the correct printing of the code tables, it is necessary that the selected TrueType font contains all the characters in
thetables.Otherwise,the‘�’symbolwillbeprintedinsteadthemissingcharacter.Allcommandsforprintingconiguration
are usable both with TrueType fonts and with embedded fonts. It is possible to address the TrueType font respects the
UNICODE™ standard (see www.unicode.org), by using UTF-8 or UTF-16 encoding.

ALIGNMENT
Device is provided with sensors for the use of alignment notch in order to handle:
• rollofticketswithpre-printedieldsandaixedlength;
• Fan-foldofticketswithpre-printedieldsandaixedlength.
The alignment notch may be formed by
• blackmarkprintedonpaper(seepar.7.7);
• holebetweentwotickets(seepar.7.7);
Allalignmentsensorsare“relection”sensors:thiskindofsensoremitsabandoflightanddetectsthequantityoflight
relectedtoit.Thepresenceofthenotchisthereforedetectedbytheamountoflightthatreturnstothesensor,considering
thatthelightisrelectedbythewhitepaperandabsorbedbytheblackmark.
To use tickets with holes, it is possible to use the same sensors as “transparence” sensors, coupled two by two: a beam of
light is emitted by the transmitter sensor and the quantity of light which reaches the opposite receiver sensor is detected.
The presence of the hole 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 hole lets the light to reach the receiver.

Enable alignment
Device is provided with two sensors for alignment, placed as follows:
•
•
onemobilesensoronthelowerlat,
onemobilesensorontheupperlat.
To guarantee the alignment, it is necessary to correctly choose the sensor to use for the notch detection depending on the
type of notch and its location on the ticket.
To do this, you must enable the parameter “Notch/B.Mark Position” during the Setup procedure (see chapter 5) and set
the correct value of this parameter as described in the following table.

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/B.Mark Position” parameter is set to a value other than “Disabled” (see chapter 5).
When self-calibration starts, the device performs some paper feeds and then it prints the calibration result and the value
of the PWM duty-cicle of the alignment sensor driver so that it can be perform an optimal notch detection:
Autosetting Notch : OK
PWM Duty Cycle : 85.3%
The“AutosettingNotch”parameterindicatestheresultoftheself-calibrationprocedure;OKwillappearifithasbeensuccessful, 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/B.Mark 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
igures)oftheoutgoingvoltageofthealignmentsensor(expressedasapercentage)andthe“Notch/B.MarkThreshold”value.
This graphic representation is useful to set the most suitable value to assign to the “Notch/B.Mark 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.
Thefollowingigureshowsanexampleofpaperwiththenon-thermalpaperprintedwithblackmarks:theoutgoingvoltage
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/B.Mark Threshold” parameter is placed about half of the peak.

Referring to the front of the notch, the value of “Notch Distance” value varies from -5mm minimum and 99.9mm maximum.
