  • Page 8: Threshold Setting

    5.5 THRESHOLD SETTING 5.5.1 Outline of Threshold Setting When a label is printed, the printer detects the gap between the labels using the transmissive sensor, and corrects the print position automatically to obtain a constant print position. However, when a preprinted label is used, some inks may prevent proper positioning correction. In this case, determine the transmissive sensor threshold manually by key operation and store the value in the non-volatile memory (EEPROM).

For B-SX4, if less than 15.0 mm and 30.0 mm of the label pitch is specified for printing at 3 ips and 6 ips, respectively, an issue without a cut is performed.
