Zebra TTP Series Kiosk Printers


In Fixed mode (parameter 36 = 0) the page is intended to be a precise size. However there is one parameter that can affect this. Parameter 49 (Feed Before Cut) is feeding approx. 19mm to ensure that the cut will not be in the middle of the text.

To solve this problem the printer makes the printable area approx. 19mm shorter than the original page size when parameter 49 = 1. The area is shortened when the first print data is sent and then restored just when the page is printed. In this way the total page size is always the same.

Parameter 49 = 1 (feed before Cut)
