    1 SCOPE This specification describes key operations using the keys and the LCD display of the B-EX4T1-G and B-EX4T1-T (hereinafter collectively referred to as “B-EX4T”) high-end industrial general-purpose bar code printers. 2 OUTLINE Key operations are different depending on the printer mode: Online mode, in which operations are carried out through the keys and error messages are displayed while the printer is connected to the host such as a PC, and the system mode, in which self-test and setting of various parameters are performed.
  • Page 7: Outline Of Each Mode

    4 OUTLINE OF EACH MODE This chapter describes the outline of each mode supported by the printer. Refer to each chapter for detailed information. 4.1 ONLINE MODE This mode is mainly used by users (operators). The label or tag can be issued in the online mode. When an error occurs, the help function shows the cause of an error, troubleshooting, and recovery from the error.
