  • Page 11 NOTE: An explosion-protected vacuum cleaner certified for collection of combustible dust is required for cleaning. Take measures to mitigate material spillage and avoid potential ignition sources such as ESD (ElectroStatic Discharges), flames, and sparks. Do not smoke nearby. Do not manipulate covers, isolation and equipment filtering enclosures beyond what is specified in the maintenance chapter of the user guide.
  • Page 12: Site Preparation Requirements For The Printer

    Site preparation requirements for the printer Physical space requirements Unloading route The printer is commonly delivered by truck. The reception area and the entrance to the site should be unobstructed and ready to receive delivery. The route between the unloading area of the printer and the installation site, including any corridors and doorways through which the printer must be transported, is important to proper site preparation and must be planned before the arrival of the printer.

    * Location of the network and electrical connections The height of the room should be at least 2500 mm (99 in). The build unit measures 652 × 760 × 1050 mm. Environmental specifications Temperature during installation 20–30°C (68–86°F) Operating temperature 20–30°C (68–86°F) Recommended operating temperature for best performance 20–30°C (68–86°F)

    capture of airborne contaminants near their source of generation, and subsequently allows their efficient removal from the building through contained, and relatively low-volume air flow. A workspace health and safety professional can provide guidance on the design and use of this auxiliary ventilation equipment. See conditioning on page Air conditioning In addition to fresh air ventilation to avoid health hazards, consider also maintaining workplace ambient levels by...
  • Page 18: Air Exhaust

    To reduce the number of air changes needed per hour and improve stability and control of the environmental conditions, HP highly recommends using the air exhaust kit and connecting it to an air extraction system, to remove air expelled by the top cover fans. The design, assembly and adjustment of the air exhaust installation should be done by an experienced HVAC installer.
  • Page 19 Other recommendations Each branch of the Y requires a valve to improve flow control. ● Connectors are located 1435 mm (56.5 in) above the floor. Calculate the hose length taking into account ● the position of the connectors, leaving enough margin to allow the top cover to be opened. The extracted air contains some material in suspension.
  • Page 20 Take measurements at 4 different points of the hose perimeter as shown in the following picture, and also take a measurement at the center of the hose. Always take measurements close to the end of the hose, where it connects to the printer air exhaust kit, and make sure the anemometer wheel is perpendicular to the direction of the air flow.
  • Page 21: Printer Electrical Configuration

    Air extraction should be switched on before starting a build (including checks before printing) and switched ● off after completely finishing it (once the printer reaches the Standby situation). If the extractor is not switched off at the end of the job, it will be constantly removing air from the room, which has probably been conditioned (heated or cooled), which represents unnecessary energy consumption.
  • Page 22 NOTE: The printer is not supplied with any power cable. Power distribution unit (PDU) The PDU must be rated to meet the power requirements of the printer, and should be in accordance with the Electrical Code requirements of the local jurisdiction of the country where the equipment is installed.

  • Page 25 Choose a UPS without the BYPASS feature. If this is not possible, double-check that bypass is deactivated ● during installation. UPS batteries are optional. If your main power supply suffers from frequent short blackouts, HP ● recommends a UPS with batteries, to keep the printer working during these events.
  • Page 26 The power consumption of this printer is not fully balanced among the three power lines throughout the whole printing process. When more than one printer is connected to the same power line or UPS, HP recommends rotating the connection of the three phases of each printer to help balance the total consumption, as shown below.

    Site preparation requirements for the processing station NOTE: If you have the HP Jet Fusion 5200 3D Processing Station, refer to the HP Jet Fusion 5200 Series 3D Printing Solution Site Preparation Guide. Physical space requirements Unloading route The route between the unloading area of the processing station and the installation site, including any corridors and doorways through which the station must be transported, is important to proper site preparation and must be planned before the arrival of the station.
  • Page 28: Load Bearing

    CAUTION: Unloading and moving the processing station and all system components is the customer's responsibility and not HP's. Failure to provide the required moving and lifting equipment could result in personal injury or damage to the station during installation. Load bearing The load-bearing characteristics of the floor in the print-production area must be sufficient to withstand the weight of your processing station.
