    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.

  • Page 18: Unpacking And Parts Identification, Setting Up The Printer

    INTRODUCTION This section is provided to assist you in taking the CL Series Printer from the shipping container to the application environment. Where the physical differences between the printer models are significant (such as loading paper and ribbons), separate sections for each of the models are used for clarity.

  • Page 19

    Remove the accessory items from their protective containers. If the printer has been stored in a cold environment, allow it to reach room temperature before powering it on. Set the printer on a solid, flat surface. Inspect the shipping container and printer for any signs of damage that may have occurred during shipping.

  • Page 20

    SETTING UP THE PRINTER Consider the following when setting up the printer: Locate a solid flat surface with adequate room to set the printer. Make sure there is enough room at the top and right-hand (facing the printer) side to provide clearance for the label access door to swing open.
