Parameters
Details
q =
total quantity of labels to print
Values:
1
to
99,999,999
Default:
1
p =
pause and cut value (labels between pauses)
Values:

replicates

o =
override pause count
Values:
N =
no
Y =
yes
Default:
N
e =
cut on error label (RFID void is an error label)
Values:
N =
no - if a cutter is installed, a cut will be made after a voided RIFD label ONLY if a cut would be made after the non-voided label and this was the last retry.
Y =
yes - if a cutter is installed, a cut will be made after ANY voided RFID label.
Default:
Y
If the
o
parameter is set to
Y
, the printer cuts but does not pause, and the printer does
not
pause after every group count of labels has been printed. With the
o
parameter set to
N
(default), the printer pauses after every group count of labels has been printed.
Example:
This example shows the control over print operations:
^PQ50,10,1,Y
: This example prints a total of 50 labels with one replicate of each serial number. It prints the total quantity in groups of 10, but does not pause after every group.
^PQ50,10,1,N
: This example prints a total of 50 labels with one replicate of each serial number. It prints the total quantity in groups of 10, pausing after every group.
