Is the EZ-LP compatible with other CognitiveTPG printers?
No. The EZ-LP was designed to provide an alternative to refreshing legacy Zebra brand desktop printer applications. All other CognitiveTPG label printers use Cognitive Printer Language (CPL) as the primary programming language. DLX and C-Series also include the EcPL and ZcPL emulations same as the EZ-LP but the EZ-LP printer will not print using CPL programming language. Additionally, the serial port on the EZ-LP is designed to work with standard RS-232 DB9 (wired straight through) cable. All printers include international print capability incorporating multiple code page and support for Unicode UTF-8 character sets.

How else does the EZ-LP differ from CognitiveTPG DLX printers?
In order to keep the price competitive but still exceed the performance of most installed desktop printers, the EZ-LP offers 8 MB RAM & 4 MB Flash memory. The DLX printer provides 16 MB RAM & 8 MB Flash memory.

What kind of media can be used on the EZ-LP?
EZ-LP will work with direct thermal labels or tags in either outward or inward wound configuration. The printer is set up for direct thermal mode printing only.

What is included with the EZ-LP printer?
The base model includes Serial (DB9), USB-A (host), and USB-B (device) communications interfaces. The shipment includes the printer, power supply, power supply cord, and Quick Start Guide. The communications cables required for the printer are common industry standard cables and are not supplied with the printer.

Are popular linear and 2D barcode symbologies included?
Yes, but the printer runs in one of two emulation modes so the supported barcode symbologies differ slightly between EcPL and ZcPL.

What is the USB-A (host) port and how is it used?
The EZ-LP, DLX, and C-Series all feature a USB-A (host) port which is the same type of USB port found on most computers. It allows for easy upgrading of firmware or loading of formats whether or not the printer is connected to a computer.

With what certifications does the EZ-LP comply?
EZ-LP complies with the following: RoHS (Directive 2002/95/EC), WEEE (Directive 2002/96/EC), FCC (Class A digital device), Industry Canada (Class A digital apparatus), UL Listed (UL60950), IEC60950-1 (2001) CE Mark

Are the EZ-LP printer drivers Windows compatible and does Cognitive Administrator Utility support it?
Yes, additionally the EZ-LP can be set-up to run with some legacy printer drivers as well.

What language emulations are supported for a drop-in compatibility legacy printer replacement?
The printer uses Zebra EcPL and ZcPL program language emulations for compatibility with Zebra label formats.

When should an end-user buy an EZ-LP in place of other legacy printers?
Many legacy desktop label print applications can be refreshed with the direct thermal EZ-LP printer but new applications or situations of business improvement might require such features as moveable sensor, 300dpi resolution, Cognitive Programming language, or increased print speed and/or memory which would require our DLX and C-Series models. The EZ-LP is based on a proven mechanical platform offering greater durability than installed legacy desktop
