Select a Communication Interface
The way that you connect your printer to a data source depends on the communication options
installed in the printer. You may use any available connection to send commands and label
formats from a host computer to the printer.
Connector Locations
Refer to Figure 9. The printer comes standard with an Electronics Industries Association (EIA)
RS-232 serial interface (DB-9 connector), an IEEE 1284 bidirectional parallel interface
(unless replaced with an optional print server port), and a USB 1.1 port. You may use any of
these interface methods to send commands and label formats from a host to the printer.
Figure 9 • Cable Connections
Caution • Connecting a data communications cable while the power is ON may damage
the printer.
Note • You must supply all interface cables for your application. Refer to Data Cable
Requirements on page 17 for specific cable requirements.
