Managing Power on the PB50

Use the power options on the PB50 to manage and conserve battery power. From the Power option in Setup menu, you can set Low Battery, Sleep Timer, and Standby Timer.

Use the Low Battery option to set the battery voltage at which the low battery warning appears. The values for Low Battery range from 12.1 V to 16.8 V in 0.1 V increments. The default setting is 13.5 V.

Use the Sleep Timer option to set the amount of time it takes for the PB50 to go to “sleep” if the printer is not printing and you do not have any interaction with it. When the printer goes to “sleep,” it turns off the backlight and it dims the Ready-to-Work indicator. By default, the printer backlight turns off after 20 seconds of no user interaction. You can set Sleep Timer to always off, always on, 5 seconds, 10 seconds, 20 seconds, 30 seconds, or 60 seconds. The backlight turns on when:

Do not operate the PB50 in extremely cold temperatures. Using the PB50 in temperatures below freezing reduces the overall battery life.

Remember that any rechargeable battery loses its ability to maintain a charge over time. You can only recharge it a finite number of times before you must replace it.

Loading Media

You can use roll or fanfold receipt media with the PB50 printer. The PB50 ships with a small amount of media loaded and a test page printed to verify that the printer works. The PB50 supports self-strip printing applications. For information on how to correctly load media for self-strip printing, see “To load media for self-strip printing” on page 14. For information on media specifications, see

“Specifications” on page 52.

To load media

1Press down on the blue media cover release button until the cover releases.

Changing Configuration Settings From PrintSet

PrintSet Version 4.2 (or higher) is a printer configuration tool that you can download from the Intermec web site. PrintSet can communicate with your printer through a serial cable or a network connection. It works on all PCs running Windows 98 (or later). PrintSet allows you to easily change all of the setup parameters. It also includes setup wizards to guide you through some common configuration tasks.

Changing Configuration Settings Using the Command Line

You can change configuration parameters by sending commands directly to the printer using your terminal program (HyperTerminal) and a serial or network connection.

If your printer uses the Fingerprint language, you use the SETUP command, followed by the node, subnode, and parameters setting. Here is a Fingerprint example that sets your media setting to labels with gaps:

SETUP "MEDIA,MEDIA TYPE,LABEL (w GAPS)"

If your printer uses the IPL language, you would send this command:

<STX><SI>T1<ETX>

Fingerprint automatically sends feedback to HyperTerminal as you type. If you want to see what you are typing with IPL, you need to complete the following procedure.

To see IPL commands as you type

1From the HyperTerminal menu, select File > Properties > the

Settings tab.

2 Click the ASCII Setup button.

3 Select Echo typed characters locally.

4 Click OK twice.

For more information on how to change configuration settings, see either the Fingerprint Command Reference Manual (P/N 937-005-xxx) or the IPL Command Reference Manual (P/N 937-007-xxx). You can download both documents from the Intermec web site at www.intermec.com.

PB50 Mobile Label and Receipt Printer User’s Guide

Chapter 2 — Configuring the PB50

Establishing Communications With a Host

The PB50 must establish communications with a host that will send the data for the printer to print. The PB50 provides four ways to communicate with a host:

Bluetooth radio communications

802.11 b/g radio communications

USB communications

Serial communications

Setting Up Bluetooth Communications

The PB50C can contain a Bluetooth radio that allows wireless communications with a remote device from distances up to 100 meters (approximately 328 feet) depending on the Bluetooth range capabilities of the remote device, environmental conditions, and obstructions. For the Bluetooth-enabled devices to exchange data, both devices must establish a connection. Bluetooth software is always running in the background.

The PB50C cannot initiate a Bluetooth connection. One of the devices, such as a CK31, CK61, 700 series, CN2B, or CN3 mobile computer, must request a connection with the printer. The PB50C then accepts or rejects the connection. Use Intermec Settings on the mobile computer to enable the Bluetooth settings on the PB50C.

The PB50C can also connect to Bluetooth scanners such as the SF51 and the SR61 Cordless scanners. You can create the bar code labels you need to connect the printer to a Bluetooth scanner using EasySet software. If you are going to create the bar code labels using EasySet, you will need to know the Bluetooth Device Address and the PIN of the PB50C. You can download a free version of EasySet from the Intermec web site at www.intermec.com.

Each PB50C equipped with a Bluetooth radio has a unique Bluetooth Device Address (BDA) loaded into its module when manufactured. You can find the BDA on the certification label located on the bottom of the printer.

Troubleshooting Communication Problems

Use Dump mode to verify that the printer is receiving data from the host correctly.

Using the Line Analyzer in Fingerprint

In Dump mode, the printer runs a Fingerprint program called Line Analyzer. The Line Analyzer captures incoming characters on the communication ports and prints them on one or more labels.

The easiest way to enter Dump mode is through Test mode or Extended Test mode. For help, see “Understanding Test Mode” on page 21.

After the printer enters Dump mode, it tells you it has entered Dump mode by printing it on a label. The display shows the Dump mode icon and printer is ready to receive data.

While the printer is receiving data, the Ready-to-Work indicator blinks. After a half of a second, if no more characters have been received, the printer times out. The program considers the transmission terminated and prints out a label.

46

PB50 Mobile Label and Receipt Printer User’s Guide

Chapter 3 — Troubleshooting and Maintaining the PB50

Printable characters are printed in black-on-white. Control characters and space characters (ASCII 000 to 032 dec) are printed in white-on- black.

As long as a continuous string of characters is being received, the program wraps the lines until the label is full and then starts to print another label. After each character transmission, the following information prints:

Page number

Number of characters printed on the label

Total number of characters received so far

When you exit Dump mode, a final label prints to inform you that it is exiting from Dump mode.

Using Dump Mode in IPL

When you enter Dump mode, the printer captures incoming characters on the communication ports and prints them on one or more labels.

If you have IPL firmware on your printer, you can access Dump mode in two different ways with slightly different results:

You can access Dump mode through Test mode or Extended Test mode and you will receive printouts that look exactly like those produced with the Line Analyzer program in Fingerprint. For more information, see the previous procedure, “Using the Line Analyzer in Fingerprint” on page 46.

You can access Dump mode using the control panel buttons. If you access Dump mode this way, characters are printed on a continuous line along with corresponding hexadecimal numbers.

To enter Dump mode using the control panel buttons

Press and hold the Feed and Standby buttons until the printer starts feeding out media.

The printer feeds out several labels (or inches of media), prints the test labels, and then enters Dump mode.

To exit Dump mode using the control panel buttons

Press the Feed button.

Chapter 3 — Troubleshooting and Maintaining the PB50

Cold Booting the PB50

You rarely need to cold boot the PB50 printer, unless you are upgrading the firmware. If your printer occasionally locks up, you will want to cold boot it. A cold boot reinitializes the 802.11 radio and clears the working memory.

Note: The Setup menu is not affected by a cold boot. Your printer retains all of your configuration settings after the printer powers back up.

To reset the PB50

1 Disconnect the PB50 from power if externally powered.

2 Remove the battery from the PB50 for at least one second.

3 Insert the battery back into the PB50.

4 Reconnect external power if your PB50 is externally powered.

Cleaning the Printer

To properly maintain your PB50, you should clean it at the recommended intervals. If you have a linerless printer, you may want to clean your printer more often than recommended. Printing may get noisy due to residue from the linerless medai building up on the roller bar.

To avoid possible personal injury or damage to the printer, never insert any pointed or sharp objects into the printer.

Use only the cleaning agents specified in this section. Intermec is not responsible for damage caused by any other cleaning materials used on this printer. Clean most of the printer with a cotton swab saturated with alcohol.

Do not clean the linerless platen roller with isopropyl alcohol. It could damage the surface of the platen roller.
