*1 Three years outdoor durability is based on accelerated weather tests conducted by Roland DG. Results may vary depending upon location and application.
*2 When the built-in heating unit is operating, media shrinkage may increase depending on the media, operating temperature and humidity; therefore, printing and cutting distance accuracy, repetition between printing and cutting, and repetition between printing and cutting when the media is reloaded are not assured.
*3 Recommended operating temperature and humidity while the built-in heating unit is operating: 20-32 degrees centigrade (68-89.6 degrees Fahrenheit) and 35-80% (non-condensing).
