Resolution / Answer

Customer can send the below ZPL script to the printer to set the Applicator Port.


If you want to set Applicator Port to Off, please send the follow script to printer:
^XA^JJ,0^JUS^XZ

If you want to set Applicator Port to Mode 1, please send the follow script to printer:
^XA^JJ,1^JUS^XZ

If you want to set Applicator Port to Mode 2, please send the follow script to printer:
^XA^JJ,2^JUS^XZ

If you want to set Applicator Port to Mode 3, please send the follow script to printer:
^XA^JJ,3^JUS^XZ

If you want to set Applicator Port to Mode 4, please send the follow script to printer:

By default, Applicator Port is set to 0 = Off.


This same setting can also be performed by using the "device.applicator.end_print" SGD command.

Format: ! U1 setvar "device.applicator.end_print" "value"

Values:


off = Off

1 = End Print signal normally high, and low only when the printer is moving
the label forward.

2 = End Print signal normally low, and high only when the printer is moving
the label forward.

3 = End Print signal normally high, and low for 20 ms when a label has been
printed and positioned.

4 = End Print signal normally low, and high for 20 ms when a label has been
printed and positioned.

Default: off
