Special requirements apply to printing systems that are integrated into a labeling system. Here, the printers must be easy to change and withstand 3-shift continuous operation. An interface for connecting to the system via signal exchange for starting the printout and for returning error messages is an important requirement for using these printing systems.
In order to ensure easy replacement, uniform dimensions for mounting the pressure module have prevailed independently of manufacturers. The interfaces for connecting to the PLC of the system differs depending on the manufacturer, but the basic functions are usually always supported.
