BIXOLON has developed XI, BIXOLON Interpreter, which is ideal for building standalone label printing solutions which can be used remotely without an accompanying PC.

BIXOLON XI is a standalone BASIC* programming interpreter that enables users to create a BAS application which directly sends printing data to a pre-allocated BIXOLON label printer from peripherals such as a barcode scanner, electronic scale or keyboard. With XI, users are able to independently select and print different preloaded label design formats without additional computing hardware.

 *BASIC is a powerful computer programming language that can be used to create programs for today’s computers and peripherals.


Key features

  •  Create a label printing station without a PC (reducing hardware costs and maintaining space efficiency)
  • Connect the various peripherals directly to the printer, such as electronic scales, barcode scanners or keyboards
  • Interpret and manipulate label data streams
  • Share BAS files to multiple printers (a highly universal data format)
  • Several BAS files can be stored per device depending on the printer’s memory capacity
  • Support CSV for data loading or storage on the printer 
  • Ability to control the XI status (Stop / Running) on the printer’s LCD display
  • The software is free of charge during the limited promotion period

How does XI software work with additional Peripherals 

  • Simply plug in peripherals into the printer with preloaded BAS filed printer to streamline user operations
