- Standard cutter option
The media cutter is an operator or factory installed option that is attached to the printer with thumbscrews and a cable with an RJ11 type connector. It is not necessary to access the electronics side of the printer to install the cutter. When a label has been cut, the printer retracts the label stock before printing the next label to prevent the loss of top-of-form registration. The cutter is capable of cutting media up to .01" thick, and the cutter life is designed to exceed 500, 000 cuts. The cutter operation is initiated by a DPL command. The nominal rated print speed of the printer remains the same, but the overall throughput is reduced due to the cutting and backing-up operations.
