    Automatic Tray Switching Automatic Tray Switching Automatic tray switching, available for both PCL and PostScript jobs, enables you to group two or more input trays together into one logical tray, and in a specific order in which the trays will be searched to satisfy an input request.
  • Page 115 Automatic Tray Switching Tray switching is made possible via the Tray Sequence item in the Control Panel’s Tray Menu. It enables grouping of Trays 1 and 2 in the printer, the 50 Sheet Bypass Feeder, and Trays 3, 4 and 5 in the 2,500 Sheet Feeder (if installed) into a variety of sequence combinations.

    Automatic Tray Switching Paper Handling Table 1.32 describes the paper selection process based on fully defined or partially defined paper selection Exception Conditions parameters. A paper request may include one or more of the following parameters: paper tray, paper size, paper type (e.g., plain, letterhead, etc.).
  • Page 118 Automatic Tray Switching The fourth column of Table 1.32 defines which paper size and paper type to use based on fully or partially specified paper selection parameters. After the type and size are determined, the next step is to determine which paper tray to use to satisfy the request.

Table 1.33 Tray Sequence examples Condition Action(s) Taken The Tray Sequence is set to 4-5-1. The printer searches for letter paper in the tray sequence order (4-5-1).
  • Page 122: Paper Size/Type Mismatch

    Automatic Tray Switching Paper Size/Type Paper size/type mismatch occurs when the requested size is not available in the printer. This can be caused by Mismatch running out of paper in a tray that is configured for the requested paper, or by requesting a paper that is not configured in the printer.
  • Page 123: Offsetting Output

    Offsetting Output Offsetting Output The 500 Sheet Face-down Bin supports offsetting output between successive jobs or multiple collated sets of a single job. Offsetting is controlled from the Control Panel (see page 3-46) or via CentreWare DP. The 200 Sheet Face-up Output Bin and the 10-bin Mailbox/ Collator do not support offsetting.
  • Page 124 Offsetting Output • The offset function occurs between successive jobs directed to the Face-down Bin only if the jobs contain data that results in a sheet being printed and delivered to the bin. For example, if a PCL job contains <ESCAPE>E sequences at the beginning of a job and there is no printable data separating these commands, the offset does not occur (even though these escape...

    Using the Finisher Using the Finisher Features The finisher option can be installed only on console versions of the printer (i.e., versions which have the 2,500 Sheet Feeder). It has three output bins with a total maximum capacity of 2,000 unstapled sheets, up to 667 unstapled sheets per bin.
  • Page 132 Using the Finisher The finisher has an elevator that positions one of the three output bins to receive output from the compiler bin. The finisher home position is when Bin 2 receives output from the compiler bin. Finisher bin selection is made from the System Menu at the User Interface, via PCL commands or from printer drivers.
  • Page 133: Output Destination

    Using the Finisher Output Destination With a finisher installed, the user may select the following output destinations: Face-down Bin, Face-up Bin, Finisher Bin 1, Finisher Bin 2, and Finisher Bin 3. Output destination can be set via the System Menu at the UI or by PCL and PJL commands.
  • Page 134 Using the Finisher Safety Limitation When Finisher Bin 3 is selected, the bins are raised to the highest position. In the interest of safety, they will only remain in this position for one minute following the last page delivered to bin 3. After one minute, the bins are lowered to align bin 2 with the output paper path.
  • Page 135: Bin Capacity

    Using the Finisher Bin Capacity Each finisher Bin is capable of stacking up to 667 sheets of 20 lb. paper for long edge feed (LEF) paper sizes and 333 sheets for short edge feed (SEF) paper sizes. The maximum stack height is decreased when stapled sets are delivered to each bin, since stapled sets affect the stability of the output stack.

    Using the Finisher Job Offsetting The finisher, like the Face-down Bin, supports offsetting output between successive jobs or multiple collated sets of a single job. A system parameter configures the offset function to OFF (no offset), or ON (toggle offset portion of sequential jobs or multiple collated sets of a single job.) Job offset is a system function that cannot be configured by the driver.
