External Printer Connectivity

The UP-CR20L can connect to an external printer and use it as a slave printer.
The external printer can print on media sizes that the UP-CR20L doesn't support, which means shop owners can provide customers with two print sizes without having to replace the paper media.

"Compatible printer"  UP-DR200 (see detail information)   UP-DR80 (see detail information)

Note
The same print packs have to be loaded onto both printers for rollover printing. The printer with the lowest remaining print media will be used first.
