This operating mode is the printer‘s ability to select and print labels even when it is not connected to a host system. The label has to be designed with software such as cablabel S3 or by direct programming with a text editor on a PC. Label formats, texts, graphics as well as database contents are stored on a memory card, a USB memory stick or in the internal IFFS memory. Only variable data is sent to the printer via a keyboard, a barcode scanner, scales or other systems. With the database connector, this data is recalled from the host and printed.
