     Paper from all trays is printed topside first. It is recommended that Xerox branded paper be loaded with ream wrapper seam-side up.  Manufacturers of coated stock do not recommend use of their media when the ambient relative humidity exceeds 60%. Relative humidity greater than 40% may increase the misfeed rate from Trays 1, 2, 3 and 5 (Bypass).
  • Page 37 (i.e. Short Grain). Transparencies  For optimum system performance and image projection, use Xerox removable stripe transparency materials. These premium transparencies are specifically designed to provide optimum print quality. Use of other transparencies may cause machine damage and result in excessive service calls.

     Physical delivery of the press and print server will be by a Xerox authorized Carrier. The carrier will install and perform a functional check of the press. The carrier will review the software/documentation with the customer. For the press the customer is responsible for connecting and configuring the equipment on their network.
  • Page 53: Customer Site Survey

    Customer Interview and Physical Site Checklist After the order for a Xerox press has been placed, the Analyst, Customer Trainer, or designated Xerox person in the district must visit the customer site to complete a physical site check. Arrange for a meeting with the decision maker at the site and explain that it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure the site is ready for the delivery and installation of the equipment.
  • Page 54: Customer Site Description

    Versant 80 Press Follow-up Visit the site and verify that all requirements have been met. If the site is not ready, attempt to resolve any readiness conflicts. Perform ongoing site check updates until the site is ready.   When the site is ready, begin the installation process used in the district. Ensure that any optional letters of agreement concerning space requirements are processed properly in the district.
  • Page 55   WARNING: The Xerox press should never be up-ended or serious damage will result. Elevator Requirements Elevator Weight Requirements An elevator capacity of 1200 lb. (545 kg) or more is required to move the print engine and print server for an installation. If the elevator capacity is not adequate, options may exist for elevator modifications.
  • Page 56: Site Preparation Checklist

    Is the date prior to machine installation? Site Preparation Checklist The following checklist provides a list of tasks that the customer and the Xerox/Partner personnel should complete in order to ensure a successful installation. When both the customer and Xerox/Partner tasks are completed, the Xerox/Partner personnel should send notification to the carrier.
  • Page 57: Operational Considerations

    Prints may exhibit random white spots caused by paper dust, stray developer beads, or other particles. You can reduce the occurrence of white spots by using Xerox approved paper. If you are cutting your own paper, ensure that cut edges are dust free, and keep the machine in a clean and dust/dirt reduced environment.
