Check the FCC Label on the back of the printer.

The easiest way to tell if your printer has a magnetic encoder installed is looking at the model number. You will find the model number on a grey FCC label placed on the back of the printer. If your printer has a magnetic encoder it will have the letter "M" in the model number

  • i.e. P310C-0M10P

Model number on test card

You can also check if your printer has a magnetic encoder installed by looking at a test card

Sometimes the encoder is installed after the printer has been purchased. In this case the best way to check if it has an encoder is printing a test card. The printer model shown will have a "M" in it (i.e. P430iBM).
