  1. Paper roll length is approximate, based upon readily available UK sourced paper with 12.7mm core.
  2. Depth behind panel does not account for electrical connectors for which allowance must be given. Please order a printer for physical evaluation before committing to your final panel design.
  3. This value does not include the 9-35V DC optional power board which can (but doesn't need to) mount on the back of the panel clamp adding approx. 29mm to the overall depth.
