Back to Blog 7. This printer application tool allows users to customize any printer function and is only available in select EasyCoder models. In fact, no other manufacturer offers a tool like Fingerprint. Comparable printers are instead equipped with a static command language that controls the printer with the help of a computer.

This document explains how to use Intermec Fingerprint to program Intermec printers, and includes a command reference chapter with descriptions, syntax, and related information for each command.

Before you work with Fingerprint, you should be familiar with your network, general networking terms, such as IP address, and your bar code label printers. The Intermec web site at contains our documents as PDF files that you can download for free.

Fingerprint is an easy-to-use intelligent programming tool for label formatting and printer customization, allowing you to design your own label formats and write your own printer application software. You may easily create a printer program that exactly fulfills your own unique requirements. Improvements or changes due to new demands can be implemented quickly and at minimal cost.

Fingerprint also contains an easy-to-use slave protocol, Intermec Direct Protocol, which allows layouts and variable data to be downloaded from a host and combined into labels, tickets and tags with a minimum of programming. Intermec Direct Protocol also includes a versatile error handler and a flexible counter function.

For more information, see your printer documentation. This Programmer's Reference Manual contains detailed information on all programming instructions in the Intermec Fingerprint programming language. It also contains other program-related information common to all Fingerprint-compatible Intermec printers. If you are new to Fingerprint, you can get started with the Fingerprint v8.

All information needed by the operator, like how to set up and run the printer, how to load the media or ribbon supply and how to maintain the printer, can be found in the User s Guide for that printer. PDF versions of other Fingerprint manuals can be found at To learn how to download other Intermec manuals, see Related Documents on page xx.

Although most commands work exactly the same as for Fingerprint 8. XX series, the differences in the printer platforms cause the firmware to have some important differences. Some general differences are listed below: Because the EasyCoder PD41 has no display, commands affecting the display have no effect. Applications requiring user input on the printer keyboard will therefore not work.

The EasyCoder PD41 does not support as many optional interface cards. This affects the devices available. The EasyCoder PD41 does not send a power fail signal. What s New in Intermec Fingerprint v8. Support for Aztec bar code symbology. Directories cannot be used in any other parts of the memory or in CompactFlash memory cards card1. The maximum length of a path is characters. The commands and output formats are designed to be as backwardscompatible as possible while giving the user access to the new features directories.

Examples of this are: FILES give a size of 0 for directories to minimize impact on applications that parse the output. To relieve the user from always having to use the entire path when referring to a directory above the current one, each directory including the root directories contains a parent directory. This parent directory is called It refers to the directory s parent directory.

Each directory also has a reference to itself. PRG default. In the command syntax, certain punctuation marks are used to indicate various types of data. Do not include punctuation marks unless noted for that command. Convention Description [ ] Entries within brackets are optional.

Choose only one of the keywords. Repetition of the preceding data type. Uppercase letters indicate keywords and must be entered exactly as described.

Lowercase letters are also allowed unless stated otherwise. The absolute value of a number is always positive or zero. Note that the expression must be enclosed within parentheses.

Due to technical reasons concerning the stepper motor control and label gap detection, a small deviation from the expected result may occur. Statement specifying which part anchor point of a text field, bar code field, image field, line, or box will be positioned at the insertion point.

Range is 1 to 9. Default value is 1. Each text, bar code, or image field has nine possible anchor points, whereas lines and boxes have three.

One of these points must be selected, or the default value 1 is used. The selected anchor point determines the position of the object relative to the insertion point, which is in turn is determined by the nearest preceding PRPOS statement.

Furthermore, the field will be rotated around the anchor point according to the nearest preceding DIR statement. The nine anchor points of a text, bar code, or image field are oriented like the numeric keys on a computer keyboard: Lines and boxes have three anchor points only: left, center, and right.

The anchor points for field types are illustrated next. Text Field Anchor Points A text field makes up an imaginary box limited in width by the length of the text, and in height by the matrix size of the selected font. In text fields, the anchor points 4, 5, and 6 are situated on the baseline. However, for EAN and UPC codes, the box is restricted in width by the size of the bar pattern, not by the interpretation.

This implies that the first digit of the bar code interpretation will be outside the imaginary box: For composite bar codes, the human readable bar code interpretation for the 2-dimensional element is outside the imaginary box.

Image Field Anchor Points The size of an image field is decided when the field is created. Note that an image field consists of the entire area of the original image, including a white or transparent background.

Line Anchor Points 10 Intermec Fingerprint v8. Lines and boxes have only three anchor points, each of which can be specified by means of three different numbers. A special case is multi-line text fields in a box. The fields can be aligned in nine positions in relation to the box, while the box itself only has three anchor points, as described above. Occasionally a printer may have to run for some time with a faulty printhead before a replacement printhead can be installed.

Single faulty dots will produce very thin white lines along the media. This may be tolerable for text, graphics, and vertical ladder bar codes, but for horizontal bar codes picket fence , this condition may render the bar code unreadable. However, if the bar code is moved slightly to the left or right, the trace of a faulty dot may come between the bars of the bar code and the symptom is remedied temporarily. The statement attempts to adjust the bar code even if several faulty dots have been specified, but returns error if it was unable to adjust the bar code successfully.

The maximum deviation from the original position, as specified by the PRPOS statement, can be set up separately for the directions left and right. TagPrint PRO 3. The document provides the programming bar. Bar Code Mode Bar Code Style,. Euro Plus d.
