Press the FEED key to display the Zero Slash display.
ZERO SLASH YES NO
This setting determines if a zero is printed with a slash or without a slash. This setting can also be controlled via software commands. When YES is selected, the printer internal fonts will have a slash through the center of the zero character. STEP 1. 2. PROCEDURE Use the LINE key to step the underlined cursor to either Yes or No. Once the correct setting is underlined, press the FEED key to accept the setting and advance to the Auto Online display.
auto online YES NO
This setting determines the mode in which the printer powers up. If YES is selected the printer powers up in the ONLINE mode and is ready to print. If NO is selected, the printer powers up in the OFFLINE mode and must be manually placed in the ONLINE mode by pressing the LINE key before it is ready to print. STEP 1. 2.
PROCEDURE Use the LINE key to step the underline to either the YES or NO selection. Once the correct setting is underlined, press the FEED key to accept the setting and advance the display to the Offset display.
Print offset v:+0000 H:+000
Since the printer moves the label in discrete steps equal to the size of the print dot, the units of measure for Vertical and Horizontal Offset distance is dots. Vertical Offset is the distance down from the leading edge in dots (the edge of the label that comes out of the printer first) to the first vertical print position. A positive setting moves the first print position down the length of the label while making it negative moves it up the length of the label. The maximum value that can be set is 823 dots. Horizontal Offset is the distance that the label image is shifted either to the right or left on the label. For a positive setting the image is shifted to the left (towards the inside edge of the label). For a negative setting the image the image is shifted to the right (towards the outside edge of the label). This setting changes the base reference point for all subsequent label jobs. The effect is identical to the <ESC>A3 Base Reference point command. The maximum values that can be set is 1424 dots. STEP 1. 2. PROCEDURE Use the LINE key to step the first digit of the counter to the desired setting. The display will increment one step each time the LINE key is pressed. Press the FEED key to accept the setting and advance the cursor to the second digit. Again use the LINE key to step to the desired setting. Once it is correct, press the FEED key to advance to the next adjustment. Once the setting is correct, press the FEED key to accept the setting and advance to the next display. Print a test label after completing the adjustments to ensure it is correct. Note: This setting can be overridden by the Base Reference Point Command in your software.

c. Verify the following: You have not typed a "0" (zero) for an "o" (letter) or vice-versa. You have not missed any <ESC> characters where they're needed. Make sure all printer command codes are capital letters. Your protocol codes are set for Standard or Non-Standard and data stream is consistent with these.
7. If you've checked all the above and the printer still isn't printing, you may want to try a Receive Buffer Hex Dump to determine what (if anything) the printer is receiving from your computer. See Hex Dump Mode in Section 8-10. The Parallel port is now listening for incoming data. Send your print job. The printer will now print (only once) a Hexadecimal (Hex) Dump of everything it received from the host computer. Each 2-digit hexadecimal character represents a character the printer received. It may be tedious, but now you can analyze and troubleshoot the data stream. WARNING: A small label may produce a large amount of data when printed in Hex Dump. 8. While checking the Hex Dump printout, look for 0DH 0AH (Carriage Return and Line Feed) characters throughout. The command string should be continuous. CR or LF characters are not allowed between the Start Command (<ESC>A) and the Stop Command (<ESC>Z). If you are using BASIC, it may be adding these characters automatically as the line wraps. Adding a "width" statement to your program can help to suppress these extra 0DH 0AH characters by expanding the line length up to 255 characters. If you're not programming in BASIC, check to see if you have an equivalent statement in the language you're using to suppress extra carriage returns and line feeds from your data being sent out to the printer. We want the data stream to be one complete line going to the printer.
8.4 The RS232C (Serial) Interface
1. Is the RS232C Serial cable connected securely to your serial port on the PC (DB-25S Male) and to the RS232C connector on the printer? Warning: Never connect or disconnect interface cables (or use a switch box) with power applied to either the printer or the host. This may cause damage to the interface circuitry and is not covered by warranty. 2. Is the cable defective? At the very least, you should be using a "Null Modem Cable" which crosses pins in a specific manner. This should enable your printer to print. We recommend that you use a cable built to specifications described in Section 3, Interface Specifications. 3. Is the RS232 Interface Module installed in the printer? 4. Check for obvious errors in the data stream. Is the data properly framed with the <ESC> A and <ESC>Z commands? 5. If after sending your job to the printer, it only "beeps" and displays an error message on the LCD display, you may have a configuration problem. There may be some inconsistencies with the Baud Rate, Parity, Data Bits, or Stop Bits in relation to your host computer. If you are unsure as to what the printer's current RS232 settings are, print a Configuration Test Label. It will list all of the current printer configuration settings. 6. If you are still unable to get printer output, try the Hex Dump as described Step 7 under IEEE1284 Parallel Interface Troubleshooting. In this case, the printer monitors the RS232C interface for incoming data. 7. From the Hex Dump, if you are seeing extra ,0)0 (CR and LF) characters, and are using BASIC, refer to the beginning of the Command Code section in the Operator and Technical Reference Manual.
If you cannot print from NetWare and you have checked the hardware and network as described in the previous steps, first verify that the print server is attached to the server queue by going to PCONSOLE, selecting PRINT QUEUE INFORMATION, and then CURRENTLY ATTACHED SERVERS. If the SATO enhanced ethernet adapter does not appear in the list of attached servers, then check the following (note that it is always a good idea to try deleting and recreating the print server and creating a new print queue in order to eliminate the possibility of setup errors):
1. If you cannot create a print queue, make sure that you have sufficient NetWare privileges. With NetWare 3.12 and earlier, you MUST be logged in as SUPERVISOR (not someone with Supervisor privileges). If you are having problems creating queues with NetWare 4.xx and later, try logging in as ADMIN. Also, make sure that you are not trying to run XAdmin32 with the Microsoft NetWare client (you must use the Novell 32-bit client). 2. If you changed the login password, you must change the password in both the SATO enhanced ethernet adapter (using the SET NETWARE PASSWORD command) and in the file server (using the PCONSOLE Print Server Information Change Password command). 3. Make sure that you have enabled at least one NetWare file server using the SET NETWARE SERVER servername ENABLED command. 4. Have you exceeded your NetWare user limit? 5. Make sure that the print server name you used in PCONSOLE exactly matches the name that is configured in the print server, and make sure it is defined as a Queue Server for the print queue. 6. If you are running both 802.3 and Ethernet II frames on different file servers on your network, there is a possibility that the print server may not make a connection to the desired file server. Try forcing the frame type to the desired one using the SET NETWARE FRAME command from the SATO enhanced ethernet adapter remote console. 7. If you are losing portions of your print job and you are using the DOS NetWare drivers, try setting the TIMEOUT parameter in your CAPTURE statement to a higher value (at least 50 seconds for Windows). 9. Because of a bug in the vendors software driver, file servers equipped with certain models of SMC Ethernet controllers may crash when an SATO enhanced ethernet adapter is connected to the network. This problem, which primarily affects EISA-based controllers made in 1993 or earlier, is not specific to SATO enhanced ethernet adapters, and can be fixed by upgrading the file server with the latest SMC drivers. Contact SMC technical support at (516) 435-6250 for additional information and instructions on how to download the new drivers from the SMC bulletin board.

The SATO CL Series e Thermal Transfer Printers are complete, high-performance on-site labeling systems. All printer parameters are user programmable using the front panel controls and the DIP switches. All popular bar codes and 14 human-readable fonts, including a vector font, are resident in memory providing literally thousands of type styles and sizes. The Operators Manual will help you understand the basic operations of the printer such as setup, installation, configuration, cleaning and maintenance. The major differences in the CL408e and the CL412e printers is the resolution of the head. The CL408e with its 203 dpi head provides an economical labeling solution for most applications. It can print labels up to four inches wide. If a wider label is needed, the CL608e can print labels up to six inches wide at the same resolution. The CL412e provides a higher print resolution, 305 dpi, to give laser-quality printing. It is useful when higher resolution is needed for detailed graphic images. The six inch wide companion printer to the CL412e is the CL612e. All of the CL Series e printers use the same command codes. The only differences are the allowable values representing the print positions on the label. These values are specified in dots and will vary depending upon the resolution of the printer and the amount of memory available for imaging the label. The allowable range for each printer is specified in a table for those command codes. This commonalty makes it very easy to convert labels from one CL printer to another without having to create an entirely different command stream. There are some caveats that must be observed though to compensate for the different resolution print heads. The effect of the different printer resolutions are best illustrated by taking a label designed for a 203 dpi printer and sending the command stream to the its 305 dpi counterpart. The label printed will be an exact two-thirds scale, including the fonts, bar code dimensions and line lengths/widths. The only exception is the PostNet bar code which has only one legal size and the printer resolution is automatically compensated for by the printer. Conversely, a label designed for a 305 dpi printer and sent to its 203 dpi cousin will be one-third larger. It probably will be truncated if the label size is larger than the maximum allowable for the printer. The following general information is presented in this section: General Printer Specifications Optional Accessories

12. Adjust the Media Knob based on the media you have loaded. For media up to 2.3 inches wide, use the 1 position, for media between 2.3 and 4.6 inches wide, use the 2 position. For media wider than 4.6 inches, use the 3 position. If you use media narrower than 7 inches, using the wrong setting can void the print head warranty due to the excessive pressure. Caution: Using media narrower than the maximum print width may cause excess head wear due to the label edge. LOADING THE RIBBON 1. Open the Side Access Door by swinging it up and to the left. The hinge system automatically dampens the movement to prevent the door from inadvertently falling and possibly causing injury to the operator. 2. Open the Print Head Assembly by pushing the Head Latch toward the rear of the printer. The Print Head Assembly is spring-loaded and will automatically open as soon as the Head Latch is disengaged. 3. Locate the Extra Ribbon Core supplied with the printer. Place the core on the Ribbon Rewind Spindle, pushing it all the way to the inside of the spindle. Note that the new empty core of each subsequent roll becomes the next rewind core. 4. Load the ribbon onto the Ribbon Supply Spindle, also pushing it all the way to the inside of the spindle. The dull side of the ribbon should be facing down as it travels through the Print Head Assembly. 5. Feed the leader portion of the ribbon through the Print Head Assembly and up to the Ribbon Rewind Spindle following the routing shown in the diagram. 6. Load the ribbon behind and over the top of the Ribbon Rewind Spindle and tape it to the Extra Ribbon Core. Make sure it matches the ribbon path shown in the diagram. 7. Manually turn the Rewind Spindle to wrap the ribbon onto the core one to two turns to secure it. 8. If the labels or tags are already loaded, close the Print Head Assembly by pushing downward on the green tab until it latches closed. NOTE: Run a test print to ensure that the labels and ribbons were loaded correctly. See the Test Print section on page 3-22 for instructions on how to run test prints.

Section 4: Cleaning and Maintenance
Print The fine adjustment for Print Darkness is the PRINT potentiometer on the operator panel. It provides a continuous range of adjustment, allowing you to make precise changes. Use a small cross-point screwdriver, turning clockwise for darker print and counterclockwise for lighter print. See Section 3:Configuration for instructions on performing potentiometer adjustments NOTE: The PRINT potentiometer adjustment will affect the darkness in all of the command code speed ranges, i.e. if the PRINT potentiometer is adjusted for lighter print, the darkness will be lighter in all speed ranges selected by the command code. Print Speed The other method of controlling print quality is by controlling the speed at which the label is printed. This adjustment is made only on an individual label basis using either the Print Speed command code or the LCD display panel. For more details on this command, see Section 5: Programming. Changing the print speed allows the user to control the amount of time allowed for print element cooling before the media is stepped to the next print position. It is especially critical when printing ladder bar codes (bar codes printed with the bars parallel to the print line). When printing a ladder bar code, it is important to allow the head to cool sufficiently before stepping to the next position. If it does not have sufficient time to cool, the bar will be smeared on the trailing edge. The Print Speed can be set using the LCD panel or with the Print Speed command code. The software command will override the any setting entered using the LCD panel.
CLEANING THE PRINT HEAD, PLATEN AND ROLLERS
Supplies needed: Cleaning the Print Head 1. Turn the printer off and remove the power cable. 2. Open the Label Access door.
SATO SA070 Cleaning Kit
3. Open the Print Head Assembly by pushing the Head Latch toward the rear of the printer. The Print Head Assembly is spring-loaded and will automatically open as soon as the Head Latch is disengaged. Remove the ribbon. 4. Apply SATO Thermal Print Head Cleaner to a cotton swab. 5. The Print Head faces downward along the front edge of the assembly. Pass the end of the dampened swab along the entire width of the Print Head (you may need to move the ribbon out of the way to do this). 5. Check for any black coloring or adhesive on the swab after cleaning. 6. Repeat if necessary until the swab is clean after it is passed over the head.
CLEANING THE SENSORS
There are two sensors that are used to control the positioning of the label. One is a transmissive see-thru sensor that detects the edge of the label by looking through the backing paper which is translucent and detecting the presence of the opaque label. The other is a reflective sensor that detects the light reflected from the bottom of the label liner. When a printed black Eye-Mark passes through the beam, the light is no longer reflected back to the sensor detector, indicating to the printer that it should use this position as the start of a new label. When dust, dirt or other foreign matter interferes with the light path of either of these sensors, the results is erratic label positioning. These sensors should be cleaned regularly, at least every two rolls of labels. Supplies Needed: 1. Turn the printer off and remove the power cable. 2. Open the Label Access Door. 3. Open the Label Hold-Down by disengaging the latch. The Label Hold-Down is spring loaded and will stay in the up position. Two rectangular holes will be visible underneath the Label Hold-Down when it is raised. These are located approximately 1 and 2 inches in from the printer side plate. 4. Apply SATO Thermal Print Head Cleaner to one of the cotton swabs.

Check for any black coloring or adhesive on the swab after cleaning. 6. Repeat if necessary until the swab is clean after it is passed over the head. 7. The head should be cleaned at least every time the ribbon is changed and more often in harsh environments. Cleaning the Platen 1. Turn the printer off and remove the power cord. 2. Open the Print Head Assembly by rotating the green Head Latch counter-clockwise. The Print Head Assembly is spring-loaded and will automatically open as soon as the Head Latch is disengaged. Remove the labels. 3. Apply SATO Thermal Print Head Cleaner to one of the cotton swabs. 4. The Platen is the rubber roller directly below the Print Head. It should be cleaned of any ribbon or label residue. 5. Repeat if necessary. The platen and rollers should be cleaned whenever foreign matter such as dust or adhesive is present.
4. Apply SATO Thermal Print Head Cleaner to one of the cotton swabs. 5. Insert the cotton swab between the top and bottom pieces of the Sensor Unit and move back and forth to clean any foreign matter from the exposed surface of the sensors.
SECTION 5. PROGRAMMING REFERENCE
Information on programming the Cle Series printers can be found in the e and PRO Printer Programming Reference, PN 9001096 found on the Printer Utilities CD-ROM.
The CL Series e printers utilize a Plug-In Interface Module for maximum printer configuration flexibility. This section presents the interface specifications for the CL Series e Series printers. These specifications include detailed information on how to properly interface your printer with your host system. The following information is presented in this section: Interface Types Using the Receive Buffer IEEE1284 Parallel Interface Universal Serial Bus (USB) Interface Local Area Network (LAN) Interface RS232C Serial Interface General Specifications Electrical Specifications Pin Assignments Ready/Busy Flow Control X-On/X-Off Flow Control Bi-Directional Communications Protocol
The parallel interface for the CL Series e printers is a high speed, bi-directional interface that conforms to the IEEE1284 specification (ECP mode on some computers). The interface is also compatible with the older Centronics parallel interface standard. If it does not detect the correct IEEE1284 signals in the interface connection, it will automatically operate in the standard Centronics mode which is much slower. To use the IEEE1284 parallel interface to its fullest capability requires that the host also have an IEEE1284 compatible interface and that the two be connected with a cable that meets the IEEE1284 specification. If either of these two are not present, the data rate is severely compromised. In order to provide flexibility in communicating with a variety of host computer systems all e printers use a Plug-In Interface Module. The IEEE1284 Interface module is shipped with the printer unless another interface type is specified at the time of the order. The other interfaces available are a high speed (to 57.6K bps) serial interface, an Ethernet interface or an optional Universal Serial Bus (USB) interface. The Parallel interface will probably be the most useful in communicating with IBM PCs and compatibles. The RS232C Serial interface allows connectivity to a number of other hosts. The USB interface allows the printer to be connected to a computer that supports peripherals attached to a USB bus. Up to 127 peripherals can be connected to a single USB port.

(20 hexadecimal) for the ID number, six zero characters (30 hexadecimal) in the Remaining Labels bytes and the 16 byte Job Name. Cancel (CAN) If a CAN (18 hexadecimal) command is received , it will stop the print job and clear all data from the receive and print buffers. A delay of five milliseconds or more is required before any new data can be downloaded. The CAN command is effective immediately upon receipt, even if the printer is off-line or in an error condition. The printer will return an ACK (06 hexadecimal) if there is no printer error condition and a NAK (15 hexadecimal) if an error condition exists. Print Job Upon receipt of a valid print job (<ESC>A. <ESC>Z), an ACK (06 hexadecimal) will be returned by the printer if there are no errors and a NAK (16 hexadecimal) if a printer error exists. Print Stop (DLE) If a DLE (10 hexadecimal) is received by the printer, the print process is stopped and an ACK (06 hexadecimal) is returned if there are no errors and a NAK (16 hexadecimal) if a printer error exists. Print Start (DC1) If the printer has been stopped by receipt of a DLE (10 hexadecimal) command, it can be restarted by sending a DC1 (hexadecimal 11) command. Upon receipt of this command an ACK (06 hexadecimal) is returned if there are no errors and a NAK (16 hexadecimal) if a printer error exists. (1) To provide compatibility with older SATO printers, the RS232 interface can be configured to use an earlier Bi-Com 3 ENQ/ACK/NAK protocol selected via DSW2-8 and DSW1-7/8 (on the RS232 Interface module).The earlier protocol did not have provisions for the Job Name and did not respond to the DLE or DCI commands. Also, there are additional Response Codes in the Status Byte Definition. It is recommended that you use the current protocol rather than the earlier version unless it is necessary for compatibility with existing software.

APPENDIX A. OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES
This section contains instructions for using the following CL Series eoptional features: Label Rewinder Label Cutter Label Dispenser PCMCIA Memory Expansion Internal Flash ROM Memory Expansion Calendar Interface Cards
The rewinder is an external unit that allows for labels and tags to be rewound in rolls up to 8.5 inches in diameter. It derives its power directly from the printers EXT connector using a built-in cable. The rewinder provides the ability to rewind tags/labels from the printer and subsequently be unwound for later use with applicators. Installation 1. Position the Rewinder at the front of the printer and align it with the label slot. (The Rewind Wheel/Spindle should be positioned away from the printer.) 2. Connect the built-in cable from the Rewinder to the EXT connector at the rear of the printer. 3. On the Rewinder, remove the metal clamp from the Rewind Spindle. 4. Feed the lead end of the label stock under the first spindle and onto the Rewind Spindle. Feed the stock around the spindle once, then replace the metal clamp over the label stock. Wind another revolution to ensure the labels are secure on the spindle. 5. Select the REWIND option on the rewinder, then set the power switch to ON. (The printer must be powered ON for the rewinder to function.) Removing and Unwinding the Roll As labels are printed, tension from the rewinder should keep the label stock taut as it wraps itself on the spindle.
Appendix A: Optional Features
To remove the roll from the spindle, first set the power switch to OFF. Remove the metal clamp, then remove the rewound roll of labels. To unwind for using with an applicator, first set the power switch OFF. Attach the lead edge of the labels from the rewind spindle to the applicator entry point. Select the WIND option on the rewinder, and when ready to begin, set the power switch to ON.
The label cutter consists of an internal mechanism that will cut labels or tags as they exit from the printer. The cutter can be used to print labels of various lengths using continuous form label/tag stock or to easily separate labels when there is no perforation at the label gap. Operator Setup The following steps should be taken to set up the label cutter. 1. Install the label cutter, following the instructions provided with the unit. The installation time is approximately 20 minutes. 2. Power the printer ON. 3. The printer must be configured to use the Label Cutter option. Switches DSW3-1 and DSW3-2 on the front panel are used to configure the printer. To enable the cutter, DSW3-1 should be in the ON position and DSW3-2 should be in the OFF position. 4. Open the Print Head Assembly and feed the edge of the labels/tags into the cutter assembly and out between the label cutters. NOTE: Although the cutting blade is fairly well protected, be careful as you feed labels into the cutter area. You may want to have the printer powered OFF at this point. 5. Close the Print Head Assembly and place the printer on-line. 6. The Label Cutter is ready for use. 7. Adjust the cut position using the backfeed adjustment procedures outlined in Section 3: Configuration. General Operation The data stream to be sent to the printer may need to be altered to add the Cutter Command. If this command is not used, the cutter will default to cut after every label assuming it has been enabled in the printer configuration. For more details, see the e and PRO Printer Programming Reference. As the labels are printed, they will be cut based on the the data supplied using the cutter command.
Appendix A: Optional Features LABEL DISPENSE OPTION CL608e and CL612e
The CL608e and CL612e Label Dispense Option is an external mechanism that provides the ability to print labels in the demand mode. It is attached to rear of the printer with two screws and is connected to the internal drive mechanism of the printer. When the label dispenser is installed and configured for operation, the printer dispenses one label at a time, peeling the backing from the label, which allows for immediate application to the product by the operator. Operator Setup The following steps should be taken to set up the Label Dispense Option. 1. Install the option using the instructions provided with the unit. The installation time is approximately 30 minutes. 2. Power the printer ON. 3. The printer must be configured to used the label dispenser option. Switches DSW3-1 and DSW3-2 on the front panel are used to configure the printer. To enable the dispenser, both DSW3-1 and DSW3-2 should be in the ON position. 4. Remove enough labels from the backing paper to provide 24 to 30 inches of backing free from labels. 5. Open the Print Head assembly and feed the backing paper through the print area in the normal manner. 6. At the label exit area, feed the backing paper down and behind the Knurled Roller, then back down and around the Backing Roller. 7. Feed the backing paper out the slot in the bottom rear of the printer and attach to the Backing Rewind Spindle.

Appendix A: Optional Features INTERNAL FLASH ROM MEMORY EXPANSION
Description A factory installed option allows the internal FLASH ROM to be expanded from 2MB to 6 MB by adding an additional 4MB. It can be used to store fonts, graphic images and form overlays. The Expanded Memory is selected using the <ESC>CC Memory Area Select command. This option requires the installation of an Expanded Memory pcb and is a factory-only installed option.
Appendix A: Optional Features CALENDAR ALL MODELS
The Calendar Option allows the date and time to be maintained in the local printer rather than using the system clock. It consists of an integrated circuit module containing the clock components and battery and plugs into a socketon the main pcb assembly. A qualified technician should perform the upgrade as it requires modifications to the main PCB assembly. Please call SATO Technical Support if you need to add this option to an existing printer in the field.
PLUG-IN INTERFACE MODULES
The CL Series e printers have user changable Plug-In Interface Modules. The Interface Module is accessible from the Rear Panel and is retained by two screws. Use the following procedure to replace an interface molule. 1. Turn power off both the printer and the host and remove the power and interface cables. WARNING: Never connect or disconnect interface cables (or use a switch box) with power applied to either the host or the printer. This may cause damage to the interface circuitry and is not covered by warranty. 2. Remove the two Interface Module Retaining Screws. 3. Grasp the Interface Module and pull it out of the connector. 4. Place the new Interface Module in the slot and press inward firmly until it is properly seated. 5. Replace the two Interface Card Retaining Screws. 6. If the new Interface Module is for a serial interface, set DSW1 for the proper operation. 7. Connect the interface cable to the connector.
