Thermal printer technology

With excellent print quality, the InfoPrint 6700 printers use an inline thermal printhead that allows two modes of operation. These modes are:

  • Thermal transfer

    During thermal transfer printing, the heated thermal printhead selectively heats elements in the printhead. When the heated elements contact a thermal ribbon, the heat reacts with the ribbon and bonds the image to the paper. This method is used for abrasive, long-storage applications, and IBM ribbons are available for this type of printing.

  • Direct thermal

    During direct thermal printing, the thermal printhead also selectively heats printhead elements. When these elements contact the coated thermal paper, the dyes and developers in the coating react to the heat and develop an image. This mode of printing is generally used for short-term labeling applications.

RFID on the Model M40

The RFID feature of the InfoPrint 6700 Model M40 printer includes a reader, antenna and associated components to enable programming (encoding) and reading of RFID tags. RFID can be installed on the Model M40 in either the factory or in the field.

The following software emulations support the RFID capability:

  • IBM IGP
  • Zebra Graphics Language (ZGL)
  • Sato Graphics Language (STGL)

RFID Tag Support

  • Alien 9440 Squiggle
  • Alien 9460 Omni Squig
  • Avery 220 Runway
  • Generic EPC G2 Phil1
  • Generic EPC G2 Phil2
  • Generic EPC G2 Phil3

  • Smbol Four T
  • Smbol Trident
  • TI Dallas

Class 1, Class 0, Class 0+ tags, Philips 1.19 tags, or other EPC global Gen 2 tags not listed above are not supported.

Print Speed

The print speed is adjustable in 1-ips increments (1 ips to 10 ips for both 203 dpi and 305 dpi). The default print speed is 4 ips. Print speeds are selectable via the control panel menu or via the host interface.

Print Intensity

Print intensity settings shall be selectable from either the printer's control panel menu or the host system.

Print Width and Media Width

The maximum print width is 104 mm (4.1 in) and the maximum media width is 130 mm (5.15 in).

Label Length

The minimum label length is 6 mm (0.25 in) and the maximum label length is 2.5 m (99 in).

Duty Cycle

As a medium duty industrial printer, the printer has a duty cycle of five thousand 4x 6 labels over a 12-hour day (1.5 hours of total print time).

Media Handling Modes

The printer operates in two basic modes: Batch and on demand.

Batch mode is used to print and collect labels for later use. On-demand is used in applications where labels will be used immediately after printing.

The printer supports the following Batch media handling modes.

  • Batch Continuous:

    In this default media-handling mode, the printer:

    • Unwinds the media from the media supply spindle or fanfold label stack.
    • Prints the labels.
    • Delivers the labels without aligning them for immediate removal. The last label is precisely positioned so that the next label to be printed is at top of form.
  • Batch Rewind:

    In batch rewind mode, the printer:

    • Unwinds the media from the media supply spindle or fanfold label stack.
    • Prints the labels.
    • Rewinds the printed media and its carrier web onto the optional rewind spindle.

The printer also supports the following on-demand media handling modes.

  • Tear-off:

    The tear bar is a standard option. In tear-off mode the printer:

    • Unwinds the media from the media supply spindle or fanfold label stack.
    • Prints the label.
    • Aligns the label perforation over the tear bar for removal by the operator.
  • Peel-off:

    This mode requires installation of the Peel w/o Rewind feature (#5715, 5716), or the Peel with Rewind (#5717, 5718).

    In peel-off mode, the printer:

    • Unwinds the media from the media supply spindle or fanfold label stack.
    • Prints the label, and automatically peels the label from the liner, leaving the peeled label at the mouth of the printer.
    • The waste liner can then be rewound onto the optional rewind spindle, or directed to the floor if the rewind spindle is not present. The label present sensor detects when a label has been removed, and the printer retracts the media to top of form before printing the next label.
  • Cut:

    This mode requires the cutter option and provides the capability to cut each label, or set of labels.

Standard Host Interfaces

The InfoPrint 6700 Model M40 includes the following host interfaces as standard.

  • Serial: RS232E with DB 9-pin serial connector for serial data rates of 1200, 4800, 9600, 19.2k, 38.4k, 57.6k, 115.2k Baud

Quick Change Memory Cartridge (#5607) - Initial
Quick Change Memory Cartridge (#5608) - MES

This feature provides a quick change memory cartridge (QCMC) that provides an easy way to copy a printer's firmware and configuration settings from one printer to another. A snapshot image of the source printer is stored onto the QCMC and a printer operator can easily copy that image to a target printer. The QCMC has its own resident network MAC address that will be used in place of the printer's LAN/WLAN MAC address when the cartridge is left installed in a printer. When the QCMC is removed, the printer will revert back to its internal LAN/WLAN MAC address.

The QCMC provides the ability to quickly duplicate an entire printer's firmware, saved configurations, and custom files through the printer's control panel with a user-friendly interface. No external host or files are needed to transfer this information to the QCMC. The saved snapshot image can be copied to any number of printers using the same QCMC so that the printers will be identically configured. Each printer, both the source and the target, must have the same hardware and options.

This allows a mission-critical printer to be exchanged quickly with a spare printer that will be identically configured, including the network MAC address.

The QCMC uses the same printer card slot as the optional memory cartridge and the font cartridges. This slot is standard on all InfoPrint 6700 Model M40 printers.

(#5607) Quick Change Memory Cartridge - Initial

(#5608) Quick Change Memory Cartridge - MES

This feature provides a quick change memory cartridge (QCMC) that provides an easy way to copy a printer's firmware and configuration settings from one printer to another. A snapshot image of the source printer is stored onto the QCMC and a printer operator can easily copy that image to a target printer. The QCMC has its own resident network MAC address that will be used in place of the printer's LAN/WLAN MAC address when the cartridge is left installed in a printer. When the QCMC is removed, the printer will revert back to its internal LAN/WLAN MAC address.

The QCMC provides the ability to quickly duplicate an entire printer's firmware, saved configurations, and custom files through the printer's control panel with a user-friendly interface. No external host or files are needed to transfer this information to the QCMC. The saved snapshot image can be copied to any number of printers using the same QCMC so that the printers will be identically configured. Each printer, both the source and the target, must have the same hardware and options.

This allows a mission-critical printer to be exchanged quickly with a spare printer that will be identically configured, including the network MAC address.

The QCMC uses the same printer card slot as the optional memory cartridge and the font cartridges. This slot is standard on all InfoPrint 6700 Model M40 printers.
