The operator will then be able to choose from a selection of  available printers.

Screen Overview

On this screen you will typically see something that looks like this:


From here, the operator can simply choose whichever printer they need to use, after which they will be returned to whichever screen they were viewing before hitting the printer select button.

Printers are set and configured globally from within Control Center.

Screen Help

Each tile present in this screen represents a different printer that is currently set up in the V5 system. They will typically look like this:


  1. Custom logo for the printer manufacturer. This is automatically assigned depending on the printer type selected during setup.
  2. The name assigned to the printer when it was set up.
  3. The number of the printer as set up in Control Center.

I can select my desired printer, but it isn’t working?

Once printers are initially set up within Control Center, they will always be visible for selection, so if you can select the printer but nothing is printing the reason could be one of the following:

  • The printer is not powered on.
  • It is not connected to the Terminal (if connecting via USB/serial connection).
  • It is not connected to the local network (if connecting via LAN).

If all this has been checked, it is also possible that you have selected a printer that is loaded with a different label set than the current batch/product you are trying to process. It is worth checking with your line supervisor to verify that you are using the correct printer.
