Printer USB cables connect into the square port

We recommend using USB to connect your CLS7001 to a PC. As a result, we set up our number plate systems this way by default. Just insert your USB cable into the bottom left port as shown. The cable has two ends, but only one will fit into the back of the printer. The other end of the cable, will need inserting into a spare USB port on your computer.

Turn your computer on

Once you’ve connected the cables, power on the printer & your computer

Once you’re happy the cables are all securely connected, turn on the mains power first. Now toggle the printers power switch on the front below the control panel, and then turn the PC on. By the time your computer reaches the Windows desktop the printer should be ready and you can start production or loading a roll.
