Use these operating instructions with your Monarchâ 6017ä HandiPrintä Printer. The printer works with the SYMBOLâ SPTâ 1700 or PPT 2700 handheld computer (“handheld”).

The printer can print text, bar codes, and limited graphics on thermal direct receipt paper.

Use these instructions to

connect the printer

load supplies

charge the battery

clean the printhead.

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, an elastic strap, a mounting button, and an AC power adaptor.

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 available from the Monarch Web site

(www.monarch.com). It provides an explanation of how to use the printer's command language.

Refer to the Symbol Web site (www.symbol.com) for the Symbol Application Programming Interface (API) documentation. Refer to the Monarch Web site for a print utility that allows users to print data from their handheld using the Appointment Book, Address Book, Memo, ToDo List, Clipboard, and print simple receipts. For more information about using your handheld device, refer to your handheld owner’s manual.

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 7.4V Lithium Ion (LiIon) battery. There are no memory effects with LiIon batteries and reconditioning is not required. Lithium ion batteries do not have to be completely drained before charging.

Charging time is approximately 1.5 to 3 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) drain the battery more quickly than others.

Disposal information – Do not throw in trash. Dispose according to your local regulations.

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).

I n s t a l l i n g t h e B a t t e r y
