Re: Printing Speed

What interface are you using? sounds like windows is sending the data to the printer as graphics which is much more intence then EPL hence the delay between each label.

DEFAULT SPEED IS 9600 bauds, 8 data bits , 1 stop bit no parity.
Un fortunateley the best spped avaible is 19200 bds.
The pausing is due to too much data transfered trough the serial port.
To sole this, increse tehe baudrate and use internal fonts.

Generally the form feed character is sent by your software. Try setting the page length in the printer setup to be the length of one label.

Different Crystal output from model 9835 and 9855 Monarchs

Your software wouldn't care whether it's a 9835 or a 9855. It can't even tell the difference. Are your supply settings and communications settings the same for both printers? Any error messages on the display when you print?

Speed of printing barcodes

Generally the ZM 400 can cope with printing at the lower speeds when printing barcoedes that are the same. You may get pauses if the barcodes are sequential numbers or are all different, then the data to be transfered to the printer cannot cannot keep up with the printer and pauses while it gets more data. We have found that if you can select in your labelling software to print the barcode as a graphic, then it speed up quite a lot. It is a matter of matching your print speed and quality to match your expectations, sometimes you will just have to put up with the pauses.

Barcodes not scanning

Very possible you have a bad printhead. If you have a bad dot in your print area, it can cause barcodes to not scan. Look to see if you have a blank vertical line running down your label.
