Use this Operator’s Handbookwith your

Paxar Monarch Sierra Sport™ 3R 9430R Printer. This three-inchprinter works with various hosts using the RS232 communications port. It also supports IrDA and optional Bluetooth communications. See Appendix A, “Specifications” for more information about IrDA and Bluetooth. The 9430R printer can print text, bar codes, and limited graphics on thermal direct receipt paper.

U n p a c k i n g t h e P r i n t e r

The printer comes packaged with two rolls of supply (one already loaded in the printer), a battery (included with select printers), a belt clip, and a plug-incharger (included with select printers).

P r o g r a m m i n g I n f o r m a t i o n

You may need to refer to the Programmer's Manual included on theCD-ROM.It provides an explanation of how to use the printer's command language.

D u t y C y c l e

The 9430R printer is designed to print up to 1000 inches per day. The average print rate is 1 inch every 10 seconds at a text character print density of 25% (i.e., one character printed out of every four positions). Bar codes and graphics are more dense (print with more dots) than text and may need a lower duty cycle. In high temperature environments, pause the printer for one minute after every four (4) inches printed. If the duty cycle is exceeded, the printer may not print all of the information that was sent to it.

Getting Started 1-1

B a t t e r y a n d S a f e t y I n f o r m a t i o n

The printer is powered by a 6.0V Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery.

Charging time in the printer is approximately 1.5 hours.

Take the battery out of the printer when storing the printer for long periods of time.

The battery storage temperature is 40°F to 104°F (4°C to 40°C). Do not store a fully charged battery at temperatures greater than 104°F (40°C) for long periods of time. The battery may permanently lose charge capacity.

Be sure to use a fully charged battery before long or battery-intensiveprinting sessions. Certain operations (for example, printing receipts with a lot of bar codes and graphics or using Bluetooth) drain the battery more quickly than others.

Disposal information – Do not throw in trash. Dispose according to your local regulations or recycle the battery. Batteries can also be returned postage-paidto: ERC; 200 Monarch Lane Door #39; Miamisburg, OH 45342.

CAUTION

Do not disassemble, short circuit, heat above 80°C, or incinerate. The battery may explode.

The recommended temperature for charging is 68°F (20°C) to 77°F (25°C).

NOTE: Optimal battery performance is achieved after using the battery until it is completely drained and recharged five times.
