How to get the remaining number of wristbands in the catridge?

I am developing a java application to print the wristband with the printer HC 100.  I would like to get the remaining number of wristband left in the cartridge. Please help. Thanks in advance.

Hello Sandhil,I the user

Hello Sandhil,

I the user manual for your printer I can see "odometer.media_marker_count1" and "odometer.media_marker_count2" parameters: https://www.zebra.com/content/dam/zebra/manuals/printers/desktop/hc100/hc100-ug-en.pdf  You can use any of these two for your purposes.

You can reset this parameter after new cartridge inserted this way using SGD language:

! U1 setvar "odometer.media_marker_count1" "0"

Then you can check amount of wristbands were printed this way:

! U1 getvar "odometer.media_marker_count1"

Having an idea on total amount of wristbands in a cartridge and amount of printed wristbands you can calculate amount of wristbands that still available.

Hello Sandhil,Seems HC100

Hello Sandhil,

Seems HC100 model will be discontinued soon, it has no support for LinkOS, just ZebraLink core. Also, it has very reduced security and connectivity options. It may worth to move forward with the ZD510HC, which incorporate Link-OS, BT/BLE and WiFi connectivity, cartridge and security connections.

The ZD510HC has parameters that you need:

media.cartridge.total_label_cnt

media.cartridge.labels_remaining
