DATA FORMAT (Label Information)
A variable-length portion of the Request Packet that contains the complete or partial ZPL II label format, or partial data string (such as a downloaded graphic).
This field can contain from 0 to 1024 characters. If the Format of a label is longer than 1024 characters, the Data Format fields from consecutive packets will be concatenated together in the printer’s Receive Data Buffer as if they were sent as one long direct transmission.
Special consideration has been given to the possible requirement to include ASCII Control Characters (values less than 20H) in the Data Format portion of a Request Packet. Characters such as EOT (04H), STX (02H), SOH (01H), and ETX (03H), are part of the Error Detection Protocol and could interrupt normal communication procedures if received at the wrong time.
