Select a Location for the Printer

The printer and media need a clean safe area with moderate temperatures to have optimal print operations.
Select a location for the printer that meets these conditions:
  • Surface:
    The surface where the printer will be located must be solid, level, and of sufficient size and strength to hold the printer with media.
  • Space:
    The area where the printer will be located must include enough space for opening the printer (media access and cleaning), and for printer access to connectivity and power cords. To allow for proper ventilation and cooling, leave open space on all sides of the printer.
Do not place any padding or cushioning material under or around the base of the printer because this restricts airflow and could cause the printer to overheat.
  • Power:
    Place the printer close to an easily accessible power outlet.
  • Data Communication Interfaces:
    Ensure that cabling and Wi-Fi or Bluetooth radios do not exceed the maximum distance specified by the communication protocol standard or product data sheet for this printer. Radio signal strength can be reduced by physical barriers (objects, walls, etc.).
  • Data Cables:
    Cables should not be routed with or near power cords or conduits, fluorescent lighting, transformers, microwave ovens, motors, or other sources of electrical noise and interference. These interference sources may cause problems with communications, host system operation, and printer functionality.
  • Operating Conditions:
    The printer is designed to function in a wide range of environments.
    • Operational Temperature:
      0–40°C (32–104°F)
    • Operational Humidity:
      20–85% non-condensing
    • Non-Operational Temperature:
      -40–60°C (0–140°F)
    • Non-Operational Humidity:
      5–85% non-condensing
