Ribbon Specifications

Standard Printer Fonts

Fonts A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, and GS are expandable up to 10 times, height and width independently. However, fonts E and H (OCR-A and OCR-B) are not considered "in-spec" when expanded. The scalable smooth font 0 (CG Triumvirate Bold Condensed) is expandable on a dot-by-dot basis, height and width independent, while maintaining smooth edges. Maximum character size depends on available memory. IBM Code Page 850 international character sets are available in the fonts A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and 0 through software control.



Bar Code Symbologies & Specifications

Bar code modulus "X" dimension:

-Picket fence (non-rotated) orientation:

300 dpi = 3.3 mil to 33 mil


-Ladder (rotated) orientation:

203 dpi = 4.9 mil to 49 mil

300 dpi = 3.9 mil to 39 mil
