4 3 06/15 Rev / Using the documentation Documentation structure Data pool Printer docu Docu object Structure data pool, documentation object The complete documentation is part of the data pool that is made available to the printer user and the service staff on CD or other electronic media. This data pool includes this printer documentation and the printer drivers. The overall documentation (in short: documentation) is understood here to mean the printer documentation. The printer documentation contains all the information required for using the product. Product use includes preparation for use, commissioning, setup, operation, maintenance and servicing, troubleshooting and service for optional expansions, settings and repairs. The documentation object includes different printer families (printer series), consisting of different printer models (devices), standard and optional add-ons for the printer (options) and the Easy Plug printer language. Documentation concept The variety of products to be documented and the requirement for documentation distribution and use of documentation both electronically (CD / Internet, PC) and in paper form led to the following documentation concept: The documentation consists of subject areas (conventionally comparable to chapters), manuals (handbooks, Instructions), link pages (jump pages) and the start page (start page of the CD documentation).

5 4 06/15 Rev / Using the documentation Subject area In each subject area, issues related to one another are described thematically. A subject area is the smallest information unit with its own page numbering, its own header, its own table of contents (see [1]), its own index, its own device assignment and its own revision status. Subject areas form the basis for the manuals. A subject area can be assigned to several manuals at the same time. Subject areas are monolingual, in some cases bilingual. 11/14 Rev Using the documentation Copyright ... 2 Documentation structure ... 3 Data pool, documentation object ... 3 Documentation concept ... 3 Documentation format ... 6 Printing out the documentation ... 7 Aids to navigation ... 8 Symbols and signs. .. 9 Warning notices ... 9 Text symbols ... 10 Title page ... 11 Abbreviations ... 12 Printer names ... 12 Parameters ... 13 Index ... 14 ATTENTION! Read the operating instructions before using the device. The operating instructions are an essential part of the associated device. The operating instructions must be available to the operating personnel at all times. [1] Example: First page of the topic "Using the Documentation". Manual A manual is made up of various subject areas. The following features characterize a manual: Title page with device allocation and revision status (see [2]). The table of contents contains the names of the chapters and also serves as a jump distributor to these chapters. The content of a manual is assigned to a specific device, a device family or an option (documentation object). A manual is assigned to a specific language and only contains subject areas in this language.

6 5 06/15 Rev / Using the Documentation A manual is assigned to a specific user group. There are service manuals (preferably for service), operating instructions (preferably for the user) and just manuals (for service and users). OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS Subject areas Device allocation Valid for the following printers: Dispenser Dispenser Dispenser OPERATING MANUAL Issue 1-06 /, Novexx Solutions GmbH, Ohmstrasse 3, Eching. All rights reserved. Copyright symbols Using the documentation Safety Commissioning and operation Setting up Special applications Maintenance and cleaning Info printouts and parameter messages Internal fonts Technical data Accessories Disposal Fig .: (Delivery variant may differ from the illustration) [2] Each manual title page has in the right half a list of the subject areas included. Since the same subject area can be assigned to different manuals at the same time (subject area only exists once physically), manuals exist virtually only. Subject areas assigned to a single manual are color-coded on the title page of the manual (same color as the title of the manual, see "Symbols and reference signs"). Link page A link page is only an organizational component of the data pool available on electronic media. The following features characterize a link page: Allocation to a single language Function as jump distributor to the individual manuals (access to the complete documentation of the corresponding language) Function as jump distributor to other components of the data pool offered on the electronic medium (e.g. printer driver and print - and design software in the appropriate language)

7 6 06/15 Rev / Using the documentation Start page Hierarchy Print memory Internet license platform Links The start page is also only an organizational component and appears when you start the CD or on the Internet at the link to the printer data pool. The start page is characterized by the following features: Allocation language-independent or multilingual Function for language selection by the user Function as a jump distributor to the link page with the selected language. This results in the following documentation hierarchy: 1. Start page (selection of the language) 2. Link page (selection of the manual) 3. Title page manual (selection of the subject area) 4. Content page of the subject area (selection of the subtopic) The subtopic selected in step 4 is mostly the information you are looking for immediately. So z. B. the selection of the number in the table of contents of the subject area directly to describe this number. Documentation format All components of the overall printer documentation are available in Adobe PDF (Portable Document Format). This has the following practical advantages: Independent of the type of printer and fonts, the ability to print out the documents in a high-quality manner. Reduced storage space for documents through data compression (faster loading, faster printing). Internet suitability due to relatively small amounts of data. Simple distribution option without paying a license (Adobe Reader licenses are offered free of charge worldwide and in multiple languages.) Can be run on different platforms (Windows / Macintosh / Linux) Jumps (links) within and between Acrobat documents as well as jumps to non-format documents and executable files. Additional Acrobat Reader functions such as returns, bookmarks, thumbnails, cross-document research using an automated index, etc. More detailed information on Acrobat Reader can be found in the Acrobat online help.

8 7 06/15 Rev / Using the documentation Printing out the documentation Example of text transfer To use the documentation independently of a PC, the documents can be printed out on paper in A4 or letter format. The Acrobat Reader uses the printing options of all executable platforms. The layout of the printout corresponds to the screen display. Please note the following before printing: When printing out several manuals, it is not necessary to print out all subject areas starting from the title pages. Only print out topics marked in black once. Various manuals refer to these subject areas. It is physically the same data. As a rule, print out all topics marked in purple. There is only one reference to each purple subject area in the respective manual. To print out the operating instructions, proceed as follows: 1. Print the title page. 2. Click on each topic area one after the other in the right half of the title page and then print it out completely. To also print out the service manual, switch to the title page of the service manual. Just click on the subject areas in purple and print them out. Subject areas in black are already included in the printed operating instructions. There is also the option of transferring documentation text (and images) to other documents via the Windows clipboard. So are z. B. Ordering information (spare part names and part numbers) can be used easily and without additional effort. Pay attention to the copyright. Information on this can be found under "Copyright".

9 8 06/15 Rev / Using the Documentation Navigational Aids Info Search Links The following are available for a quick information search in the paper documentation: for each manual the title page with the table of contents of the subject areas on the first page of each subject area the detailed table of contents with page numbers each individual page numbering Subject area the index directory at the end of each subject area. In the upper left corner of a title page or the first page of a subject area you will find small graphics that are intended to make it easier to switch to the higher-level document (see Tab. 1). Symbol Meaning Triangle: Link to the last page opened. Tab. 1 Triangle: Link to the last page opened. House: Link to the menu page. Flag: Link to the English page with the same content. On the corresponding English-language page, a German flag symbolizes the link to the German page. Houses with flags: Links to the menu pages in different languages. Is used in bilingual subject areas (e.g. spare parts lists). You will find navigation aids on the first pages of the PDF documents

10 9 06/15 Rev / Using the documentation Symbols and signs Warning notices Warning notices warn of a potentially dangerous situation.

Windows printer drivers There are printer drivers available for different versions of Windows. The printer drivers allow you to print from almost any Windows application. However, the functionality depends heavily on the software chosen. Special label layout programs are best suited, e.g. by NiceLabel. You can find printer drivers for common Windows operating systems here: Documentation CD (from which these operating instructions are also taken) Install printer drivers from the documentation CD: 1. Insert the documentation CD. The language selection menu [13] opens: PRINTERS LABELERS PRINT & APPLY SYSTEMS DOCUMENTATION FOR OPERATORS Deutsch (Click here.) English (Click here.) A Printer drivers The driver works with the following operation systems: Windows Vista / 7/8 / 8.1 / 10 / Server 2008 / Server 2008 R2 / Server 2012 / Server 2012 R2 manually: \ Content \ Software \ Printer_Driver \ Novexx \ Version \ PrnInst.exe Please read the Installation Guide <- click here or start [13] The language selection menu appears after inserting the documentation CD. 2. Click on the text below the heading Printer Drivers [13A]. 3. Follow the instructions of the installation assistant. Command file You write a sequence of printer commands in a text file and send it to the printer. To do this, use any text editor and the MS-DOS copy command. With Easy-Plug, a special command language is available for formulating a print job. However, writing a print job as a text file requires a little programming knowledge. In addition, you cannot look at the print result on the screen, but have to make test prints to see the result. An example of a print job with instructions for practicing and trying it out can be found in the Easy-Plug manual in the subject area General, Command overview definitions, Program example section. Transferring a print job The printer cannot process the print job until it has been loaded into the working memory. It can get there in two ways: Via a data cable from the data host (computer or network) Via an external storage medium (memory card or USB stick)

35 17 05/16 Rev. 05 OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS Basic operating procedures 64-xx data cable and layout program Data cable and Easy-Plug file Storage medium and Easy-Plug file When using a label layout program, the corresponding print command must be issued. The interface is set when the printer driver is installed. Requirements: Data line between printer and PC or between printer and network is set up Command file was created (here: testjob.txt) and saved in the data host or on the storage medium Windows input prompt (DOS command line) was started Enter the following command: Serial interface ( COM1): copy testjob.txt com1 USB interface: copy testjob.txt \ computer name \ share name, with computer name = name of the computer. You can find this name e.g. E.g. in Windows XP under START> SETTINGS> CONTROL PANEL> SYSTEM> COMPUTERNAME Share name = name that you can find in Windows XP under START> SETTINGS> PRINTER AND FAX DEVICES, if you click on a printer name and then with the right mouse button on PROPERTIES > Click RELEASE. The share name stands for a printer that is linked to a specific port - the USB port for transmission via USB, the TCP / IP port for transmission via Ethernet. Ethernet interface: as described under USB interface. Further information about the transfer of data via Ethernet can be found in the topic Special Applications, chapter Data transfer via Ethernet on page 17. Some information on transfer via USB or Ethernet interface: The procedure described does not work under Windows 98, Windows ME or Windows NT 4.0. The share name must meet the MS-DOS conventions (max. 8 characters long, no special characters or spaces). Execution starts immediately after switching on: 1. File containing the print job in the root directory of the storage medium with the file name autostrt .for save. 2. Connect the storage medium to the printer (see following chapter). 3. Switch on the printer. The printer processes the print job as soon as it is online. Alternatively, the print job can be started in standalone mode, see the topic Special Applications, chapter Standalone mode on page 8.
