^SS

The
^SS
command is used to change the values for media, web, ribbon, and label length set during the media calibration process. The media calibration process is described in your specific printer’s user’s guide.

Example:
Below is an example of a media sensor profile. Notice the numbers from 000 to 100 and where the words WEB, MEDIA, and RIBBON appear in relation to those numbers. Also notice the black vertical spike. This represents where the printer sensed the transition from media-to-web-to-media.
The media and sensor profiles produced vary in appearance from printer to printer.
Comments:
The
m2
and
r2
parameters have no effect in Stripe®
S
-300 and
S
-500 printers. This command is ignored on the HC100™ printer. Maximum values for parameters depend on which printer platform is being used.
