The Android app additionally supports Thai, Indonesian (Bahasa), Japanese.
Asian and Chinese characters can be downloaded using the PC connection.
The printer is not designed to work with Check Weigh applications.
The G20i is fully compliant to all health and electrical safety regulations and Bluetooth admitted in all countries where it is sold.
The printer is designed as a stand alone printer and is not intended to be networked.
TIJ stands for Thermal Ink Jet – a process where ink droplets are heated and as the ink expands it is ejected from the nozzle. This is a very accurate, fast and controllable technology.
Simply open the latch on the printer that holds the cartridge in place and remove any empty cartridge; then take the plastic protection clip off the new cartridge and slide the cartridge, electrical connectors facing down, nozzles facing forward into the slot; Ensure the cartridge is firmly located and close the latch. See the installation video to watch a cartridge being inserted.
The prints per cartridge depend on many factors including the size, complexity and font of the message being printed. The printer will give you an indication of the number of prints that can be made, based on each individual code created.
The printer is able to print a wide range of barcode types. For a good barcode quality the line speed needs to be consistent.
For lines which vary in speed an encoder is required.
The G20i is not supplied with an encoder; but industry standard encoders can be supplied and fitted by your supplier. Details on how to install an encoder can be found in the product manual.
The G20i is not supplied with an alert beacon, however these can be sourced from your supplier. Details on how to install a beacon can be found in the product manual.
Thermal Inkjet technology can print up to 600 x 600 dpi. For outer case coding applications image output of up to 300 x 300dpi is recommended.
Changing the language of the printer is an easy task from a menu option on the printer.
No, the printer does not have to be switched off, although the printing function should be stopped and restarted after the new cartridge is installed.
The printer can print at a maximum speed of 180m/min (590 ft/min) at 100 dpi horizontal resolution to 30m/min (98 ft/min) at 600 dpi horizontal resolution.
The maximum power output is 48W.
The maximum amount of fields and characters that can be added to one message is:
The limit is 100 messages that can be stored on board the G20i.
Yes, one keyboard can be used for several G20i printers, but the matching dongle needs to be connected to the printer.
As each keyboard is matched to the bluetooth dongle that is supplied with the keyboard, the keyboard will only work with this dongle. To use the keyboard on another G20i printer the dongle will need to be plugged into the G20i printer.
The G20i printer can support over 110 different barcode types.
For the full list of supported barcodes please go to the product manual for the G20i.
