Operation ManualSection 1: OverviewSECTION 1.PRINTER OVERVIEWINTRODUCTIONThe SATO M-84PRO Thermal Transfer Printers are complete, high-performance on-site labellingsystems. All printer parameters are user programmable using the front panel controls and theDIP switches. All popular barcodes and 14 human-readable fonts, including a vector font andtwo raster fonts, are resident in memory providing literally thousands of type styles and sizes.The Operator’s Manual will help you understand the basic operations of the printer such assetup, installation, configuration, cleaning and maintenance.The M-84PRO can print labels up to four inches wide and is available in three resolurions; 203dpi, 305 dpi and 609 dpi. The resolution is determined by the print head that is installed in theprinter and can be changed in the field simply by installing the desired print head. The printerautmatically detects the resolution of the print head and loads the appropriate controlling firmware.The M-84PRO uses the standard SATO RISC printer command codes. The only differencesbetween it and other RISC printers are the allowable values representing the print positions onthe label. These values are specified in “dots” and will vary depending upon the resolution of theprinter and the amount of memory available for imaging the label. The allowable range for thevarious M-84PRO models is specified in a table in the “e” and PRO Printer Programming Reference.This commonality makes it very easy to convert labels from one RISC printer to another withouthaving to create an entirely different command stream. There are some caveats that must beobserved though to compensate for the different resolution print heads. The effect of the different printer resolutions are best illustrated by taking a label designed for a 203 dpi printer andsending the command stream to the its 305 dpi counterpart. The label printed will be an exacttwo-thirds scale, including the fonts, barcode dimensions and line lengths/widths. The onlyexception is the PostNet barcode which has only one legal size and the printer resolution isautomatically compensated for by the printer. Conversely, a label designed for a 305 dpi printerand sent to its 203 dpi cousin will be one-third larger. It probably will be “truncated” if the resulting label size is larger than the maximum allowable for the printer.SATO M-84PROPage 1-1

Operation ManualSection 2. InstallationSECTION 2.INSTALLATIONINTRODUCTIONThis section of the manual has been written to help you install the SATO M-84PRO printers andto get started as quickly as possible. It is recommend to read each chapter in this manual beforethe installation or the use of the printers.The following information is provided in this section: Setting Up the Printer Loading Labels or Tags Loading the Ribbon Operator PanelSETTING UP THE PRINTERConsider the following when setting up the printer: Locate a solid flat surface with adequate room to set the printer. Make sure there is enoughroom at the top and right-hand (facing the printer) side to provide clearance for the labelaccess door to swing open. The location should be near the host computer or terminal. The maximum distance for RS232cables is 35 feet and six feet for IEEE1284 Parallel cables. Cables can be purchased locally,and their configuration will depend upon the host system being used. A IEEE1284 compliantcable must be used to realize the full throughput potential of the printers. For information on interfacing the printer to a host system, see Section 5: InterfaceSpecifications.SATO M-84PROPage 2-1

Section 2. InstallationOperation Manual5. If using roll labels (or tags), load the roll ontothe Label Supply Spindle so that the printingside of the labels faces upwards as it unwindsfrom the roll. The labels should be woundface-in. Push the roll all the way to the insideof the printer and push the Label Roll Retainersnugly against the outside of the label roll.6. If using fanfold labels (or tags) set them on aflat surface behind the printer. Pass the labels(printing side up) through the slot in the rear ofthe printer.Label Roll7. Make sure the labels are routed under theLabel Guide and through the SensorAssembly.8. Open the Label Hold-Down by squeezing thegreen tab and the release tab together. TheLabel Hold Down is spring loaded and willopen automatically when the latch isdisengaged. Feed the labels under the LabelGuide, under the Label Hold Down, throughthe Sensor Assembly and out the front of theprinter.Label Roll Retainer9. Inspect the label routing and verify that thepath matches that illustrated in the LabelLoading diagram. Set the Adjustable LabelGuide to keep the labels against the inside ofthe printer.10.

Locate the extra ribbon core suppliedwith the printer. Place the core on theRibbon Rewind Spindle, pushing it allthe way to the inside of the spindle.Note that the new empty core of eachsubsequent roll becomes the next rewind core.4. Load the ribbon onto the Ribbon Supply Spindle, also pushing it all the way to the inside ofthe spindle. The dull side of the ribbon should be facing down as it travels through the PrintHead Assembly.5. Feed the leader portion of the ribbon through the Print Head Assembly and up to the RibbonRewind Spindle following the routing shown in the diagram.6. Load the ribbon behind and over the top of the Ribbon Rewind Spindle and tape it to theExtra Ribbon Core. Make sure it matches the ribbon path shown in the diagram.7. Manually turn the Rewind Spindle to wrap the ribbon onto the core one to two turns tosecure it.Page 2-6SATO M-84PRO

Operation ManualSection 2. Installation8. If the labels or tags are already loaded,close the Print Head Assembly bypushing downward on the green tabuntil it latches closed.9. Run a test print to ensure that thelabels and ribbons were loadedcorrectly.TapeRibbonCoreCAUTION: If your labels are less than the full width of the print head, the outside edge willeventually wear out a small portion of the print head, resulting in an area that will notprint. Special care must be taken if you plan to use multiple widths of labels, since thedamaged portion of the print head caused from edge wear on a more narrow label mayaffect the printing on a wider label. We suggest you plan your print formats carefully toavoid using the area of possible damage on the print head when using a wider label. Thesmall area of damage will have no effect on printing with the undamaged part of the printhead. Damage from a label edge is physical damage and is unavoidable. It is not coveredby warranty. It is possible to delay such damage by always ensuring that the ribbon usedis wider than the label stock. This will help to protect the print head from label edgedamage.SATO M-84PROPage 2-7

ConfigurationSECTION 3.CONFIGURATIONPRINTER DIP SWITCH CONFIGURATIONDIP SWITCH PANELSThere are two DIP switches (DSW2 and DSW3) located on the front panel under aprotective cover. In addition, a third DIP switch is located on the RS232C SerialAdapter card and is used to set the RS232C transmit/receive parameters. Theseswitches can be used to set: Thermal transfer or direct thermal mode Label sensor enable/disable Head check mode Hex dump mode Single Job or Multi-Job Receive buffer Operation modeEach switch is an eight section toggle switch. The ON position is always up. To setthe switches, first power the unit Off, then position the DIP switches. Finally, afterplacing the switches in the desired positions, power the printer back on.
