Sending ISO Magnetic Encoding Information
The CUPS Driver uses URL Encoding when defining data to be encoding to the Magnetic Stripe. Any special characters (such as start and end sentinels) must be described with URL encoding to be recognized. See the URL Encoding Reference for additional information. The first character of this data string must be the track's specific Start Sentinel (SS) and the last character must be the specific End Sentinel (ES). The characters or data in between the SS and ES can include all of the valid characters specific to each track. The number of these characters, however, is limited by each track's maximum character capacity. When segmenting track data, the appropriate Field Separator (FS) must be used. The table below shows the SS, ES, FS and the valid characters defined for each track. Track Start Sentinel End Sentinel Field Separator Valid Characters Maximum Number of Characters 109

Command Purpose Restore system log path settings from the default or current settings. Add a new User definition. Up to four (4) Users may be defined.

What is the default User name and password for the Printer?
The default passwords are blank (i.e., an empty string). The default Users are as follows: root as the administrative User and guest as a non-administrative User. The Printer supports four (4) Users.
What if I lose the password for my Printer or it is not accepted?
Factory default settings will be restored to the Printer if power is applied to the Printer with Dipswitch 1 in the ON position and Dipswitch 2 in the OFF position. (Note: This will reset all Print Server settings, which includes static network settings, user configurations and user passwords.)
What should I do if the IP address of my Printer is being changed by my network? Follow this procedure:
1. Contact your network administrator. Ask that your current IP address be reserved or ask that they provide a specific IP address that you can use to configure the Ethernet interface. OR 2. Choose an IP address that you know will not be used by any other PC, server or network device. Use those settings to configure your Printer with static network settings. (Caution: Do not do this unless you know that these settings will always be available.)
How do I reconfigure my PC Printer Driver to connect to a different Printer or different IP address?
Use the Windows Add Printer Wizard to create a printer instance to communicate to the printer at the new IP address. This may require adding a new Remote TCP/IP Card Printer Port configured to communicate to the printer at the proper IP address. See the appropriate Windows documentation for additional help.
How can I verify/change what IP address my installed Printer Driver is expecting to find my Printer?
Follow this procedure. 1. Open the Printer Driver properties window. 2. Select Start -> Settings -> Printers and Faxes -> [your Printer Driver] -> Properties. 3. From the Ports tab, select Configure Port. The Host name will indicate IP address of the connected Printer. (Note: If this does not match your Printers IP address, you can change it from this window.) 4. Enter the correct IP address. 5. Select OK. 6. Select Apply. 7. Select Close.
How do I configure my Printers IP settings?
By default, the Printer is configured for dynamic IP address assignment. That is, it will try to get its IP address and other settings from your network. If it is given valid network settings, it will use them. OR You can choose to configure the Printer, using a static IP address and network settings. (Note: This can be entered using the Network web page of the Printer or the IP Tracer program.)
How do I choose a static IP address for my Ethernet Printer?
You can use the web pages if you know the current IP address. OR You can use the IP Tracer tool, which allows you to find Printers and specify their addresses. (Note: You can save static addresses. However, they are not used until you reconfigure the Printer to use those static addresses and reboot the Printer.)

Using the Encoding Mode dropdown list
You can use the Encoding Mode option in order to specify which magnetic encoding standard to use. Category Installation Description The DTC400e/C30e/M30e Card Printer can be installed with one of two types of factory installed Magnetic Stripe Encoding Modules. Change the encoding mode and coercivity setting or modify the ISO standards for Tracks 1, 2 and 3. This can be done by correctly modifying these Magnetic Encoding options.
Magnetic Encoding options (changing and modifying)
ISO Encoding selection (active and inactive functions)
If you select ISO Encoding, you send down a formatted set of characters. (Note: This selection activates the track tabs. However, all functions on the Track tabs are inactive or gray and display ISO defaults, which are the defaults listed for each track below. The Shift Data Left check box remains unchecked and inactive.)
Custom Encoding selection (active and inactive functions)
If you select Custom Encoding, all options are active. The Default is ISO Encoding. (Note: The defaults are the same as the ISO Encoding defaults. However, all functions on the Magnetic Track Options tabs are active.)
Raw Binary Encoding selection (active and inactive functions)
If you select Raw Binary Encoding, you send down a raw binary string rather than a formatted set of characters. (Note: The Coercivity dropdown function is active and the Bit Density, Character Size, Reverse Bit Order and Add Leading Zeros are also active when Raw Binary Encoding is selected. Reverse Bit Order is used to reverse the character bits and is used for the encryption of data in specific programs Add Leading Zeros is used to add a set number of leading zeros to the magnetic string in order to move the starting point of the encoded data in specific programs for encryption of data.
Raw Binary Encoding selection (continued from the previous page)
Raw Magnetic Encoding The User can select Raw Magnetic Encoding from the Driver. Raw Coercivity The User can select options for either High or Low Coercivity from the Driver. Raw Bit Density The User can select the Configurable Bit Density option. This option supports these standard configurable bit densities: 75 Bits Per Inch (BPI) 128 BPI 210 BPI Custom BPI
Raw Bit Density Per Track The User can select the Configurable Bit Density, Character Size, Reverse Bit Order and Add Leading Zero options for each individual magnetic encoding track.

Caution: If the offset is set too high or low, the card may jam in the Flipper Module when flipping.
Using the Flipper Smart Angle Offset Option
Use this option to change the Flipper angle relative to the default smart card loading position. This is done in order to adjust travel to and from the Flipper and the Smart Card Docking Module. Step 1 Procedure Enter a negative value to decrease the amount of Flipper angular movement from the home position to the smart card loading position. Or Enter a positive value to increase the amount of Flipper angular movement from the home position to the smart card loading position. (Maximum Adjustment Range: The maximum adjustment range is 5. 1 is approximately 1 degree.)
Using the Resin Heat (K) Adjustment (Settings)
Printer uses when printing with the resin black panel(s) of a full-color Ribbon or when printing with a resin-only Ribbon by adjusting the Resin Heat slide. Step 1 Procedure Adjust the Resin Heat, Front (K) or the Resin Head, Back (K) as needed. Move the slider to the left to cause less heat to be used in the printing process, causing resin images to be lighter or less saturated. OR Move the slider to the right to (a) cause more heat to be used or (b) cause the resin image to be darker or more saturated.
Using the Print Temperature Offset
Step 1 Procedure Adjust the printing temperature for the rewriteable cards as needed. Increase the Current Setting to cause more heat to be used in the printing process. OR Decrease the Current Setting to cause less heat to be used in the printing process.
(Note: Print Temp Offset provides user ability to control Printhead heat level when the Print (Write) Operation is performed on rewriteable cards. Higher heat level needs to be applied for darker printing on rewriteable cards. A lower setting will produce a lighter image on rewriteable cards accordingly)
Using the Erase Temperature Offset
Step 1 Procedure Adjust the Erase temperature for the rewriteable cards as needed. Increase the Current Setting to cause more heat to be used in the erasing process. OR Decrease the Current Setting to cause less heat to be used in the erasing process.

Printing Dynamic Text

Step 1 Procedure If the application supports dynamic text and images, then dynamic text can also be printed with the Fluorescing Panel. Follow the application directions to map a text field to a data source. ~T must be included in the beginning of the expression or in the beginning of the data.
Selecting the NONE- Re-Writable Ribbon Type DTC400e/C30e
Follow these instructions: Caution: No Ribbon is used with these cards. Do not load a Ribbon into the printer when using this process. Printing on the Re-Writable card with a Ribbon will ruin the card. The default setup is for the printer to first erase the previously-printed card; then write the NEW information on the card. (Note: If you are printing to a NEW card, select WRITE ONLY. This will speed up the process. The FULL card is erased and printed; there is no option to select specific areas to erase.) To print/erase a certain section use the Overlay/Print Area tab in the driver. Select the specific area in the same manner as the print job with the color ribbon. To erase many cards, use the Fargo Workbench Re-Writable Card Eraser option. (Note: This option does not print only erase.)
When the Re-Writeable Ribbon is selected, the DTC400e/C30e driver will show only relevant options when the Re-Writeable Ribbon Type is displayed. Step 1 Description The following options are removed from the Device Options tab when the ReWriteable Ribbon Type is selected. See below. Print Both Sides Print Back Side Only
Rotate Back 180 Degrees (dual side printers only) 2 The following options are available in the Device Options tab when the ReWriteable Ribbon Type is selected. See below. A Write Only checkbox is displayed when the NONE Re-Writeable Ribbon Type is chosen. Disable printing Rotate Front 180 Degrees
Using the Workbench (to erase the card)
Step 1 Description Open the Diagnostic Tool box.
Select the Re-Writable Card Eraser option
Select the number of cards to be erased. Click on the Erase button. (Note:
This will erase the full card. The card may be stored or printed on again.)
Using the Erase Intensity Option (DTC400e/C30e)
Step 1 Procedure This setting is used only when the None-Re-Writable ribbon option is selecting in the driver Devise Options tab. This option takes the place of the Overlay Heat (O) options in the driver when None RE-Writable is selected. Increasing this value will aide the erasing properties when using this process repeatedly on the same card. More intensity may be needed to fully erase these cards.

The process of reformatting data on a hard Drive so that it uses space more efficiently. A small array of mechanical switches installed on the board that can be configured to change Printer operations including providing a variety of self-tests. The Direct-to-Card printing process prints digital images directly onto any plastic card with a smooth, clean, glossy PVC surface. A system of distributing dots to control the hue, brightness and/or saturation. In monochrome printing, this controls the brightness. In color printing, dithering can supply a larger color gamut than nondithering. In the Driver, dither modes can be selected to provide better image quality depending on the type of image to be printed. A peripheral that attaches to a port to act as a key for an installed application. The PC is able to run that application only when the dongle is installed. Typically, it works as a pass-through device and is connected in serial to the parallel cable. The smallest unit of an image that the Printer is able to produce. The smaller the dot, see dot pitch, the sharper the image. A measurement of image sharpness denoting the width of the dots that make up a pixel. The smaller the pitch, the sharper the image. The transfer of a data file from one device to the other over a network or cable, typically from the Internet to a PC. A measurement of the Printer resolution indicating how many dots a Printer can produce in a linear inch. A microchip based volatile memory storage device. The Printer uses this to buffer a print job, transferred from the PC, until the Printer contRoller is able to process the packet. Software utility installed in Windows, that interfaces an application to rasterize image data and include command codes so the Printer can process the file. Printing on the front and the back of the card. The speed at which the card moves across the lam Roller, measured in seconds/inch (secs/in). This may be adjusted in the Driver to ensure adhesion and card flatness.
