Printing to Markem-Imaje 5200


I am working on a project using Markem-Imaje 5200 printers. We are using Colos to send the print jobs to the printer, ahead of the dynamic data. Curious if anyone has worked with these printers before?
We are somewhat new to scripting- we need to send the dynamic data to the printer and trigger a print, using a job already in the printer.

You’ve probably either figured it out by now, or just moved on, but I’m doing this exact thing. I just recently got it working with Ignition 8.0.9. I used the Python 2.7 Socket library and send NGPCL commands directly to the printer. Generally it works great when the printer is set to accept ascii, but I couldn’t get it to work with unicode characters. Hope this helps.
