The Monarch 9430RX printer control language contains a variety of commands to

♦ create and print formats.

♦ configure the printer.

♦ enable specific printer features.

You download these commands in a data stream from another device. This manual describes the printer's control language.

D u t y C y c l e

The 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.
