^MN

This command specifies the media type being used and the black mark offset in dots.

Media Tracking

This bulleted list shows the types of media associated with this command:
  • Continuous Media – this media has no physical characteristic (such as a web, notch, perforation, black mark) to separate labels. Label length is determined by the
    ^LL
    command.
  • Continuous Media, variable length – same as Continuous Media, but if portions of the printed label fall outside of the defined label length, the label size will automatically be extended to contain them. This label length extension applies only to the current label. Note that
    ^MNV
    still requires the use of the
    ^LL
    command to define the initial desired label length.
  • Non-continuous Media – this media has some type of physical characteristic (such as web, notch, perforation, black mark) to separate the labels.

Parameters
Details
a =
media being used
Values:
N =
continuous media
Y =
non-continuous media web sensing
1, 2
W =
non-continuous media web sensing
,1, 2
M =
non-continuous media mark sensing
A =
auto-detects the type of media during calibration
1, 3
V
= continuous media, variable length
4
Default:
a value must be entered or the command is ignored
b =
black mark offset in dots
This sets the expected location of the media mark relative to the point of separation between documents. If set to 0, the media mark is expected to be found at the point of separation. (i.e., the perforation, cut point, etc.)All values are listed in dots. This parameter is ignored unless the
a
parameter is set to
M
. If this parameter is missing, the default value is used.
Values:
-80
to
283
for direct-thermal only printers
-240
to
566
for 600 dpi printers
-75
to
283
for KR403 printers
-120
to
283
for all other printers
Default:
0
1. Provides the same result.
2. This value is not supported on the KR403 printer.
3. This parameter is supported only on G-series printers.
4. This parameter is supported only on the KR403 printer.
Comments
