Security Updates
  • Updated the printer operating system version and libraries. This includes updating to the latest security patches as of May 2017.
  • The printer requires a network connection using either TLS 1.1 or TLS 1.2.
New Features
The following new features were added:
  • Support for the CLM laminator to the CR805 retransfer card printer.
  • Support for an optional 6-Input multi-hopper for all printers.
  • Support for the CL900 Desktop Laser Personalization System that allows laser engraving on ISO ID-1 cards.
  • Support for an optional bar code reader that can read and verify pre-serialized cards.
  • When the printer is configured to use a static IP address, the printer’s front panel now displays the address even when the network is inactive. In addition, the LCD displays a “+” if the network is active, or a “-” if the network is inactive, as a prefix to the static IP address.
The following improvements were added in an interim firmware release, R4.3.1.5003:
  • Modified retransfer settings to reduce excess particles (flash) produced during the retransfer operation.
  • Discontinued the dust-prevention rewind of the ink ribbon and retransfer film to prevent wrinkling of the ink ribbon that could occur during the rewind process.
Resolved Issues
The following issues were resolved:
  • Printers with electronic locks remained in an unlocked state when a multi-hopper was attached.
  • False configuration errors were issued for CR805 card printers with the CLM laminator.
  • The “Remove Certs” command left the printer in an unresponsive communication state.
