  1. What is the weight of the Platinum?
    The Platinum weighs 40 oz with a full roll of supplies and a battery.

  2. How fast will the Platinum print?
    The Platinum has a variable speed paper motion system. The Platinum printing software analyzes the format of the label and combines the charge level of the battery and the temperature of the printhead to determine the optimum printing speed. The speed can range from a maximum of 1.5 in/sec. to 4 in/sec.

  3. What is the maximum drop height?
    The Platinum has been drop-tested to 4 feet onto concrete with one drop on each side (for a total of 6 drops per machine).

  4. Does the Platinum have a backup battery?

  40. Are there no-print zones on the Platinum label?
    Yes, the no-print zone is the area at the beginning or end of a label, which cannot be imaged due to motor ramping or stock motion limitations. No-print zones also exist along the edge of the supply to account for supply drift.



    aLeading Edge NPZ
    There is no software imposed acceleration no-print zone. However, a 6 mm (0.235") no-print zone is recommended at the beginning of the label to ensure optimal print quality.
    bTrailing Edge of Label NPZ
    The recommended deceleration No-Print zone is 3 mm (0.115"). Imposing on the deceleration No-Print Zone may lead to poor print quality or truncated formats.
    cRight side No-Print Zone
    The recommended inside no-print zone is 1.5 mm (0.060”) to account for supply drift on supply less than 1.89" wide. For 2.0” wide supply, c = 0.055" (2.0 -1.89)/2
    dLeft side No-Print Zone
    The recommended outside no-print zone is 1.5 mm (0.060") to account for supply drift on supply less than 1.89” wide. For 2.0” wide supply, d = 0.055” (2.0 -1.89)/2
    iImage Width
    The maximum value for i = 48 mm (1.89").
    pSupply Width
    For peel mode, w not to be less than 0.50" and not to exceed 2.05".
    For non-peel mode, w not to be less than 0.50" and not to exceed 2.0".
