Magnetic ink character recognition (MICR)
CMC7 font set: The CMC7 set is an alternative set of MICR
fonts that has been adopted in various countries outside the
U.S., and is the official standard in France. Like the E13B font, it
is magnetically readable, but with a different character design
and recognition criteria. The series includes:
CMC7 Test Landscape.
The Xerox Check Performance Guarantee means Xerox stands
behind the performance of its MICR printers and inks. However,
if any E13B or CMC7 font is used other than the ones supplied
by Xerox, this guarantee is invalidated.
The 96/4635/180 MICR receives data at 300 dpi and interpolates
it to print at 600 dpi. All AFP resources, including fonts, required
for MICR print jobs must be available at 300 dpi. Print image size
can be up to 14.33 by 17 inches.
NOTE: Non-MICR 240 dpi fonts must be converted to 300 dpi
before they can be used on the 96/4635/180 MICR.
When you enable MICR using the job attribute MICRMode, the
NPS/IPS makes adjustments so that the MICR line on your
documents prints all the way to the edges of the paper with no
fading or lightening. To ensure reliable print quality of the entire
MICR line, you must have the Transfer Assist Blade installed in
your 96/4635/180 MICR printers.
NOTE: The Custom Transfer Assist Blade should be used on
your 96/4635/180 MICR when you are using nonstandard paper
sizes. This will ensure acceptable MICR line quality.
The following figure shows a check (U. S.) printed with a MICR
line. The entire MICR line, which consists of numbers and
symbols, is printed in magnetic ink.
