DataMax: Auto Media Sensor Calibration 

…automatically establishes the optimum sensing values for the media you are using in the printer.
Note: Before calibrating, be sure the media sensor is set for the appropriate media type; also, ensure that the Print-head Carrier-Assembly is latched down and the cover is closed. 

To automatically calibrate the media sensor:

  • With the desired media loaded, hold the button [F3] while powering up the printer. Continue to hold the button until the PAUSED Light turns off then release it.
  • Next press the [F1] button. The printer will feed approximately ten inches of media to calculate the TOF Delta and Low values to be used.
    • PAUSED Light = Successful calibration
    • FAULT Light = Unsuccessful calibration

Upon completion, one of the following Indicators will flash five times to denote the result of the auto calibration attempt:
Now save the changes and resume by pressing the [F1]+[F3] buttons simultaneously and briefly. Wait until the PAUSED Light goes off.
