^PR

^PR

The
^PR
command determines the media and slew speed (feeding a blank label) during printing.

Print Rate

The printer operates with the selected speeds until the setting is reissued or the printer is turned off.
The print speed is application-specific. Because print quality is affected by media, ribbon, printing speeds, and printer operating modes, it is very important to run tests for your applications.
important: Some models go to default print speed when power is turned off.

1. This value is supported only on the 110Xi4-600dpi, 110XiIIIPlus-600dpi , and RXi printers.
2. This value is supported only on the Xi4 and RXi4 printers.
Comments:
The speed setting for
p
,
s
, and
b
is dependent on the limitations of the printer. If a particular printer is limited to a rate of 6 ips (inches per second), a value of 12 can be entered but the printer performs only at a 6 ips rate. See your printer’s User Guide for specifics on performance.
This command is ignored on the HC100 printer.
