Running the Firmware Update for new Datacard regionalised supplies

Modified on Mon, 20 Apr 2020 at 02:16 PM


Datacard have released new regionalised supplies, the product code for a regionalised Ribbon in the UK ends -R010 (e.g. a YMCKT ribbon is 534700-001-R010)


Printers with the below serial number already have the regionalisation built in to the printers firmware. (The Serial (SN) number of your printer can be found on a white barcoded label on the left side of the print head when the lid is open.)


SD260    -SN = L14289 and higher  (D2 Boards)

SD260L  - SN = D16445 and higher (D3 Boards)

SD360    - SN =  B31813 and higher 

SD460    - SN =  J11557 and higher


Once the printer is Regionalised it will display R010 on the right  of the front panel LCD screen.


If you use a ribbon from outside your region you will get error 224. You resolve this issue by using a ribbon that is compatible with your own region.


If your printer has firmware from before the firmware listed above you will need to update your printer to use the new Datacard regionalised supplies
