Configuration Setting to Command Cross-References

The Printer Configuration Report lists a majority of the configurations settings that can be set by sending ZPL commands to the printer. For information on these commands, see the ZPL Programming Guide available from zebra.com.
The sensor settings shown in this image, for example, are used for service purposes.

From this point in the Configuration Receipt listing, the printout lists sensor settings and values which can be used to troubleshoot sensor and media operations. These are typically used by Zebra Tech Support to diagnose printer problems.
The configuration settings listed here resume after the TAKE LABEL sensor value. This listing includes commands used to generate status information or they are printer features seldom changed from their defaults.

The printer can set a command or a group of commands at one (1) time for all receipts or labels that follow. Those settings remain in effect until:
  • they are changed by subsequent commands
  • the printer is reset, or
  • you restore the printer to its factory defaults.
