determine printing problems or battery level. The steps below
show how the self-test is printed activated.
• Resident font sizes
• Characters per line
• Text formatting
• Resident character set
• Resident barcode symbols

Magnetic Card Reader
The PP-60 has a built-in magnetic card reader. The card reader
incorporates a (3)-track magnetic read head requiring a single
swipe to read field data from all three tracks.
Magnetic Strip
( face down direction )
Card Swipe Direction
Figure 16
The reader’s magnetic head faces towards the bottom of the
printer. When placing the card into the reader, the magnetic strip
must be facing as show in the figure above. Keep the inner edge
of the card flat on the inner base of the reader to ensure that the
magnetic strip passes over the read head evenly.
When swiping the card through the reader, use an even consistent
motion from start to finish.
The speed of swiping can vary however the speed must be
consistent from start to finish of the swipe in order to accurately
read card data.
User Notes:
To use the magnetic card reader feature, special software must be
used to read and process the card information. If you do not have
card reading software, please consult your reseller to find out if
this software is available or contact Infinite Peripherals for
recommendations on compatible third party software solutions.

1D Barcode Scanning
Using the 1D barcode scanner:
The PP-60 uses a scan engine that supports one-dimensional (1D)
barcode symbols. The effective reading distance of the barcode reader
varies depending on the barcode size.
Scanning 1D Barcodes:
To scan a 1D barcode fist activate the scanner. Then position the scan
head as close to the barcode label as possible so that the scan line
crosses both ends of the barcode as shown in the figure below.
Slowly pull back the unit increasing the distance between the barcode
and scan head until the barcode has been read by the scanner.
