    Collection Methods and Printer Options
    Collection Method
    Required Printer Option
    Description
    Tear Off
    Can be used with any printer option and most media types.
    The printer prints label formats as it receives them. The printer operator can tear off the printed labels when the printer stops.
    Peel Off
    Liner Take-Up option or Rewind option
    The printer peels the label from the backing during printing and then pauses until the label is removed. The empty backing may be allowed to exit the front of the printer, or it may be wound onto the liner take-up spindle or rewind spindle.
    Rewind
    Rewind option
    The printer prints without pausing between labels. The media is wound onto a core after printing. The rewind plate is used to keep the labels from separating from the backing.
    Cutter
    Cutter option
    The printer cuts between labels after each one is printed.
    Delayed Cut
    Cutter option
    The printer waits for a delayed cut ZPL command (
    ~JK
    ) before it cuts the last printed label.
    Applicator
    This mode is for use with a machine that applies labels.
    The printer prints when it receives a signal from the applicator. Authorized Service Technicians should refer to the Advanced User Information section of the Maintenance Manual for additional information about the applicator interface.
    Linerless Peel, Linerless Rewind, Linerless Tear, Linerless Cut, and Linerless Delayed Cut are options reserved for future use.
