Configuring Format Convert through the LCD Display
Zebra Printers that offer multiple resolution options
The FORMAT CONVERT LCD Display menu item is a feature that allows a user to alter the printer resolution. This feature allows an image to print on non-matching resolution printers. The settings are limited to those described below.
The printers print head resolution can never be made higher then the actual dpi of the print head installed. If a 203 dpi print head is installed, it cannot be made to print like a 300 or 600 dpi print head. By choosing a Format Convert value other than NONE, it will only make the print bigger.
Think of the Format Convert as a magnification factor:
Any one of the following choices will increase the size of the print by the magnification indicated:
150/300 = 2x (Using a 150 dpi format on a 300 dpi printer)
150/600 = 4x (Using a 150 dpi format on a 600 dpi printer)
200/600 = 3x (Using a 200 dpi format on a 600 dpi printer)
300/600 = 2x (Using a 300 dpi format on a 600 dpi printer)
The JM command allows you to alter the resolution in half. For example a 300 DPI printer could be altered to 150 DPI if a ^JMB command was sent to the printer. In effect the JMB doubles the print size.
