For new Lemur models with BR## logic boards and all Lemur-X and Lemur-Z 

Low Paper See through Opto Indicator Kit for use with ticket stack P/N S423862-XZ


Each kit comes with the following: 

  • See through opto and mounting hardware
  • 36” connection cable 

The paper low see through optos brackets are normally installed a tickets width apart from each other (see photos below of typical installation). Care needs to be taken to make sure both opto eyes are properly aligned with each other.

The one of the cable connects to the see through optos. The other end is connected to the low paper connector on the printer.

In the Lemur-X and Lemur-Z printer a low paper condition is signaled when the printer returns a low paper status message (In Hex 0F, in decimal 15) to the host computer. The low paper condition is detected when the see through opto beam is no longer blocked. Once the low paper status is returned it will not be returned again until the triggering condition has been reset. This is accomplished by loading stock so the opto eyes are covered and cycling printer’s power. 


The host computer can also solicit the current status of the printer by sending an FGL status request (<S1>) command. The printer will respond with a paper low status if the paper low state has been reached and the printer is online (paper out hasn’t been reached) otherwise is will return an X-ON status
