9. STATUS RESPONSE

9.1 FUNCTIONS

There are three kinds of status response functions.
(1) Status transmission function at the end of a normal transmission and the occurrence of an error
(auto status transmission)
This function is available for the RS-232C interface and for the mail function.
If the option for "status response" has been selected, the printer sends the status to the host
computer when the printer performs a feed or completes an issue normally (For the batch/cut
mode: after the designated number of labels is printed, For the strip mode: after one label is
printed). In the online mode, the head up/down status is sent to the host computer.
When each error occurs, the status is sent to the host computer.
The remaining count in the status response indicates the remaining count of the batch currently
being printed. No remaining count of the batch waiting to be printed is transmitted.
(2) Status transmission function by status request (Status Request Command)
This function is available for the RS-232C, USB, Centronics interfaces, and socket
communications.
Upon request to send status by the Status Request Command, the printer sends the latest status
indicating its current state to the host computer, regardless of the option for "status response/no
status response" . The remaining count indicates the remaining count of the batch currently
being printed.
command is not stored in the receive buffer and executed immediately when it is received.
(3) Receive buffer free space status transmission function by status request (Receive Buffer Free
Space Status Request Command)
This function is available for the RS-232C, USB, Centronics interfaces, and socket
communications.
Upon request to send status by the Receive Buffer Free Space Status Request Command, the
printer sends the latest status indicating its current state to the host computer, regardless of the
option for "status response/no status response" . The remaining count indicates the remaining
count of the batch currently being printed. No remaining count of the batch waiting to be printed
is transmitted. This command is not stored in the receive buffer and executed immediately when
it is received.
Peel-off wait status
The peel-off wait status (05H) returned by the Status Request Command depends on the
system mode setting.
When the peel-off wait status is set to "OFF" in the system mode:
If the Status Request Command is sent when a label is on the strip shaft (for example,
while idling, after feeding a label, after printing all labels), the printer returns (00H) to the
host.
When the peel-off wait status is set to "ON" in the system mode:
If the Status Request Command is sent when a label is on the strip shaft (for example,
while idling, after feeding a label, after printing all labels), the printer returns (05H) to the
host.
If the Status Request Command is sent while a label is being printed or issued, the peel-off
wait status (05H) is returned for both settings.
No remaining count of the batch waiting to be printed is transmitted.
