MAIN SCREEN FUNCTIONS
STARTING THE JET
Ensure that the coder is plugged into a power source and is switched On.
Push the main isolator switch on the left hand side of the coder to the On position.
The following screen indicates that jet-starting procedure may proceed:
The pump will start, followed by the opening of the feed valve, the jet can be observed
initially as a clear line from the nozzle to the gutter, the jet will turn black as all flushing
solution is replaced by ink, a clicking sound will be heard as any air is purged out of the
system, the start up procedure lasts approximately 30 seconds.
The following screen indicates a successful start up:
When the Print head cover is in place the screen will display the message being printed
Coding may now begin. Press V to enlarge message being printed
4
STOPPING THE JET
When stopping the jet for any reason, the Printer should always be shut down
NEVER TURN OFF THE PRINTER AT THE MAIN SWITCH OR MAIN PLUG
WHILE THE JET IS RUNNING.
The shutdown procedure is very important and should always be adhered to in
order to avoid problems when restarting at the beginning of the next shift. This
procedure takes approximately 5 minutes.
STOP THE JET
A clean stop (Auto Shut Down)
the jet will stop the printer will flush the lines
and clear the gutter line in preparation for the next start, Wash Solvent can be applied to
both the nozzle jewel plate and the gutter to aid the process this is also a good time to
give the print head a general clean.
Wait for printer to display JET NOT RUNNING before turning power off.
ADJUSTING THE LCD CONTRAST

Do not hold down the key too long. Auto repeat will change speeds and change the
contrast too quickly to be noticeable.

Message Names
Messages are stored using names up to 16 characters in length this can be made up of
Alpha Numeric characters these can be selected by direct name entry or via the up and
down arrow keys to the right of the screen.

To backspace and retype the name.
The editor will permit changing the specific parameters for this message.
Or
to change the value.
Or
to move between parameters.
Will skip both parameters pages and start editing the message.
Printed Dots is the maximum number of dots to use while printing the message. NOTE:
Using more dots than necessary will degrade the print speed of the Printer.
Expires in Days is the expiration to apply within this message.
Shaft Encoder Rate this sets the width of print. It is the divisor to apply with a shaft
encoder. This value is directly affected by Printed Dots.
Product Delay is the amount of time or encoder pulses to wait before printing the
message.
Print Height is the amount of high voltage used to deflect a drop of ink.
Print Orientation is whether to print the message right side up (NORMAL) or up side
down (INVERTED).
8
Print Direction is whether to print the message left to right (NORMAL) or right to left
(REVERSE).
Raster Repeat Factor is a bolderization to be applied across the entire message.
Inter Character Gap is the number of dots to place between each printed character.
The Message Editor is WYSIWYG. Once the parameters have been filled, the display
will show this screen.
If there is currently a message already programmed into the selected message number or
name, the Screen will display that message.

Most barcodes can support data from multiple field types. The following walk through
will guide you into the complex means of printing multiple data type in a single barcode.
Barcodes in the editor work a little strange to the previous method. When you take a
closer look, the criteria are exactly the same.
