Highlights
The Infoprint 1532 Express printer provides:

  • Productivity and performance on your network
  • A high-function, easy-to-use operator interface
  • Quick Integration of advanced applications with standard ImageQuick
  • A convenient USB Direct Port for PDF printing
  • Extensive input and output options to enable a scalable solution
  • Enhanced security features, including secure wireless networking
  • A cross-platform print management solution

The Infoprint 1532 is a monochrome printer that supports up to A4/Letter-size media. It has an output of 35 pages per minute(ppm)(1) and comes in a network model only with 64 MB of memory, a 100-sheet auxiliary tray, one 250-sheet drawer, and a 10/100BaseTX Fast Ethernet port. Standard input capacity is 350 sheets and standard output capacity is 250 sheets. The 1532 has a maximum input capacity of 3,850 sheets and a maximum output capacity of 2,750 sheets.

Note: (1) Print speed varies depending on document complexity, system configuration, software applications, driver, and printer status.

A number of media options can be installed to offer additional sources of input. Combinations of the 250-sheet drawer, the 500-sheet drawer, the 2000-sheet drawer, and multiple optional drawers are supported simultaneously. The 250-sheet duplex unit offers two-sided printing for the Infoprint 1532. An Output Expander, High Capacity Output Stacker, and StapleSmart Finisher provide flexibility and a scalable solution in the future.

The Infoprint 1532 can adapt easily to existing infrastructures with the 802.11 Wireless feature and will use the optional wireless feature to reduce installation cost by avoiding the expense of Ethernet cabling. Add this printer with a wireless card to handle peak workloads, without waiting for IT to reconfigure cables. Preserve architecture or work around areas that are difficult or impossible to cable.

Print PDF, documents quickly and easily with the convenient USB Direct Port. Once a flash memory device (thumb drive) is inserted in the front of the printer, a list of PDF files and directories is displayed. Navigational arrows are used to traverse the list/directory tree. The user can easily select the file, choose the number of copies to be printed, and submit the file for printing. Viruses are not a concern given no execution of files takes place on the memory device. The files are read and printed - no writing to the printer.

The Infoprint 1532 is provided with printer management utilities. MarkVision Professional is a cross-platform print management solution that enables IT administrators to proactively monitor and manage network devices in an enterprise environment via a Web browser.

High-performance controller

The Infoprint 1532 controller features a 400 MHz processor. It comes with PostScript 3 and PCL 6 emulation, PDF v1.5 as standard data streams and a PPDS migration tool.

Memory

The controller has one slot for memory DIMMs, two slots for flash memory cards or application solution cards, and one slot for internal network adapters, local adapters, or hard drives.

The network model comes with 64 MB of memory soldered onboard and can support a maximum of 576 MB of memory. A 20+ GB hard disk with adapter feature is available.

Flash memory up to 64 MB is supported using the flash memory cards. Flash memory cards can be installed in either flash memory slot, but the controller supports only one flash memory card.

Printer system attachment interfaces

The network model comes with an IEEE 1284 Parallel interface with a type B connector, a Universal Serial Bus (USB), and a 10/100BaseTX interface as standard. The standard Fast Ethernet interface does not take up the network adapter slot. Optional wireless Ethernet is supported through the wired Ethernet port.

Usage rates

The maximum monthly usage is 200,000 impressions. IBM does not recommend printing to the monthly maximum on a consistent basis.

Print quality

The resolutions of the Infoprint 1532 are:

  • 1200 x 1200 dpi (at half speed)
  • 2400 Image Quality
  • 1200 Image Quality
  • 600 x 600 dpi

The Toner Darkness setting offers 10 user-selectable settings to balance print darkness and toner savings. The higher the setting, the darker the print. Within the range of print darkness settings, up to 50% toner savings can be realized. The factory default setting is 8. /p>

Font support

The Infoprint 1532 Express printer resident fonts include support for following:

Emulation Number of Scalable Fonts Number of Bitmapped Fonts
------------ ------------------------ -------------------------
PCL 6 89 2
PostScript 3 158 0
PPDS 39 5

Media-handling features

  • 250-Sheet Duplex Unit
  • Envelope Feeder
  • Output Expander
  • High Capacity Output Stacker
  • 5-bin Mailbox
  • StapleSmart Finisher

Operator panel

The operator panel is a four-line 160 x 64 mm APA (all points addressable) display, supporting four lines with 20 characters per line. This provides easy navigation and usability is improved with simple to use, large, bold icons on the buttons. Reliability and serviceability are enhanced with "show me" screens and "tell me more" screens.

Management

MarkVision Messenger enhances administrators' quality for service and improves end-user productivity and satisfaction by providing real-time notification of printer conditions. It facilitates automated responses to these conditions before they become critical and disruptive to user productivity.

Several standard and optional features are provided that improve or enhance the security of the device. Using the latest version of MarkVision Professional, administrators can configure and manage devices by using authenticated and encrypted network communications.

Using Confidential Print, a user may assign a PIN to a print job, and have the printer hold that job until the user physically arrives and enters the correct PIN. This will prevent another user from taking the printed output from the output bin.

These devices also support "printing lockout." This feature is especially useful in preventing printing after normal business hours.

Additional Media Guidelines for Infoprint 1532

Follow the media guidelines below for successful printing:

Paper

Rough, highly textured, limp, or pre-curled papers will result in lower print quality and more frequent paper feed failures.

Colored papers must be able to withstand 190 deg C (400 deg F) fusing temperature.

Preprinted forms and letterheads should be selected using guidelines found in the printer User's Guide. The chemical process used in preprinting may render some papers unsuitable for use with these printers.

Unsuitable papers include multipart forms and documents; chemically treated papers; coated, synthetic and thermal papers; and preprinted papers requiring a high degree of registration.

Recycled paper less than 80g/sqm may cause unacceptable results.

Envelopes

All envelopes should be new, unused, and without package damage.

Envelopes with excessive curl or twist exceeding 6 mm, those stuck together, those with bent corners or nicked edges, or those that interlock should not be used.

Minimum weight: 75 g/m2 (20 lb.)

The following envelopes should not be used:
Envelopes with windows, holes, perforations, cutouts, or deep embossing.
Envelopes with metal clasps, string ties, or metal folding bars.
Envelopes with exposed flap adhesive when the flap is in the closed position.
For best results, print on new 90 g/m2 (24 lb.) sulfite or 25% cotton bond envelopes.
Under high humidity conditions (over 60%), envelopes may seal during printing.

IPDS is only supported for Single Byte Character Set and does not support Double Byte Character Set.

Details on Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe Emulation

Product Overview:

The SCS/TNe or IPDS configuration settings can be changed using MarkNet print server's resident web server, a browser and the printer's IP address.

For IPDS emulation printing, the capture of outline fonts (LF3) is now supported.

These affordable Cards for IPDS and SCS/TNe provide configuration flexibility and compatibility for AFP/IPDS or SCS printing over TCP/IP to LAN printers. These Cards for IPDS and SCS/TNe are compatible with IBM mainframe or IBM iSeries applications that generate SCS (LU1) output or with applications that output AFP/IPDS through Print Services Facility (PSF).

IBM continues to make it easy for IS/IT managers to have an affordable printing solution in a distributed network or on a LAN for applications or software that generate AFP/IPDS or SCS. This includes:

PDF417 2D bar code, Data Matrix, MaxiCode 2D bar code support, QR code 2D barcode

Using AFP/IPDS and PSF, capture fonts to hard disk or to flash memory resulting in reduced network traffic over LAN, coaxial or twinaxial connections.

Supports TN3270E or TN5250E SCS (LU1) over the LAN using TCP/IP with Telnet.

No changes to host applications.

Supports emulation of common IBM IPDS and SCS printers.

Additional or new remote controllers with twinax or coax cabling are unnecessary. However, twinax and coax connections continue to be available using the Coax/Twinax Adapter for SCS.

One LAN printer can print LAN (PostScript, PCL, etc) and mainframe or iSeries documents (AFP/IPDS, SCS).

With a card and the standard Ethernet network port or a MarkNet print server using TCP/IP, the printer becomes an IBM host workstation printer capable of printing AFP/IPDS or SCS documents from an iSeries or System/390 computer.

With the appropriate host software and one of these options, the IBM printer emulates an IBM mainframe or iSeries host printer. See the compatibility section for details.

With the TN3270E and TN5250E extended Telnet protocol support in these options, the printer emulates one TN3270E printer session and up to 4 TN5250E printer sessions using the LU1 SCS data stream over TCP/IP. This is supported directly from an iSeries or from a mainframe using TCP/IP or through any TN3270E capable gateway that supports TN3270E according to RFC 2355. The DSC/DSE or SCS data streams over LU3 or LU0 are not supported. The Telnet protocol function is only supported with through the standard Ethernet network port or with the MarkNet N2000 print servers. See the compatibility section for more details.

For IPDS emulation, the card supports resident scalable fonts and 300, 600, 1200 image quality or 1200 dpi print resolutions. The resolution is selected through an IPDS MENU setting. This setting determines the print resolution of IPDS text, graphics, bar code, scalable image and scalable font data.

The printer can be configured to take advantage of additional RAM, and when attached to a LAN through the standard Ethernet port or a MarkNet print server, can save IPDS resources to improve performance for complex IPDS print jobs with host resources such as fonts, overlays or page segments.

The IPDS emulation supports the IPDS data and resource towers. SBCS fonts can now be downloaded, captured and saved to hard disk or flash memory in the printer. The US Postal Bar code POSTNET font and the Euro currency symbol are supported within IPDS.

The Euro currency symbol is also supported for the SCS, PostScript and PCL 6 emulations.

Fonts

AFP/IPDS Font and Typestyle Support:

The Card for IPDS supports resident scalable fonts. The font complement with 12 typestyles supports the IBM Font Collection (Core Int erchange Scalable Font Sets - Courier, Times New Roman and Helvetica faces).

The following languages are supported:

Latin 1: Afrikaans, Belgian (French and Dutch), Brazilian Portuguese, Canadian English, Canadian French, Catalan, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Icelandic, Italian, Latin American Spanish, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish (Castillian), Swedish, Swiss (German, French and Italian), United Kingdom English, United States English

Latin 2/ROECE: Albanian, Croatian, Czech, East German, Hungarian, Polish, Romanian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian

Latin 3, 4, 5 and 6: Maltese, Turkish, Estonian, Greenlandic, Lappish, Latvian, Lithuanian

Greek

Cyrillic for: Bulgarian, Byelorussian, Macedonian, Russian, Serbo-Croatian, Ukrainian.

The font complement for the IBM Coordinated Scalable Font Set provides support for Latin 1 languages in 3 Letter Gothic (medium, bold and italic) and 3 Prestige (medium, bold and italic) scalable typestyles. Scalable OCR-A and OCR-B typestyles are supported.

The following fonts are supported using bitmaps: APL 12, Boldface PS, Boldface Italic PS, OCR-A 10, OCR-B 10 and Prestige PS. The OCR bitmap fonts have different FGIDs than the scalable font versions.

The IBM 4028 Compatibility Font set consists of 22 fixed pitch typestyles supported by bitmap fonts. Times Roman typestyles (13) are created from Times New Roman scalable typestyles of the same weight and style.

The IBM 3812/3816 Compatibility Font set consists of 35 typestyles supported by bitmap fonts at 240 dpi.

Font Capture

Fonts can also be captured dynamically and saved (cached) to hard disk or flash memory in the printer. A captured font then appears as a printer resident font. If many fonts are used in the jobs that are printed, capturing fonts and saving them in the printer will decrease network traffic on busy networks.

PSF defines fonts as either public or private. In order to capture a font, it must be marked as eligible and public. A private font is not eligible to be captured.

Note: Do not mark sensitive fonts such as signatures and MICR fonts as eligible to be captured. Check the font licensing information before a font is made eligible for capture.

If a font is to be captured, the appropriate files for the coded font or character set and code page resources must all be marked.

The printer must also be defined as capable to capture fonts in PSF. For bitmap fonts, the font resolution of the font captured must match the resolution of the emulated printer for it to be recognized by the printer as a printer resident font. For example, the IBM 3812 and 3816 printer emulations require 240 dpi fonts. The IBM 4028 printer emulation requires 300 dpi fonts.

iSeries

On the iSeries, Font capture is supported by OS/400 V5R1 or later. To define the printer as capable to capture, in the PSF configuration (CRTPSFCFG/CHGPSFCFG), set FNTCAPTURE (*YES).

Eligible fonts must be marked. Display the font attributes to identify marked fonts (DSPFNTRSCA). Verify that *YES is specified for the Font Capture attribute. Use Create Font Resource (CRTFNTRSC) to mark font resources from other systems. Use Change Font Resource (CHGFNTRSC) to mark fonts that are not marked as eligible.

For a font to be eligible for capture, it must have non zero fields for FGID and GCSGID. Any fonts captured and saved in the printer's hard disk or flash memory are saved across instances of the writer.

Mainframe (OS/390 or z/OS)

Font capture is supported by PSF for OS/390 or z/OS. Use APSRMARK to mark eligible fonts if they are not already marked. The IBM Font Collection fonts are already marked as eligible for capture.

SCS Font and Typestyle Support

The SCS emulation uses the default resolution set using the Quality menu from the printer's operator panel. The SCS emulation in the card uses PCL fonts from the printer firmware. If the printer is set to 600 dpi, then all SCS data is printed with 600 dpi PCL fonts. It is possible to imbed PCL and PJL commands into the SCS data stream and pass them to the printer utilizing ASCII transparency.

On the iSeries, fonts can be selected by specifying the FGID (Font Global Identifier) or by characters per inch (CPI). With IBM mainframes, only CPI font selection is possible.

A parameter in the SCS data stream (Final Form Text (Level 2) Document Content Architecture (FFT (L2) DCA)) Page Presentation media (PPM) command is used to control Duplex printing.

These 6 fonts are included in SCS emulation as 300 dpi bitmap fonts: OCR-B (3), Boldface Italic (155), Boldface (159), Essay (160), Essay Bold (163) and Document (175).

Compatibility

For the Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe, IPDS is supported under the IPDS MENU settings and SCS is supported under the SCS/TNe MENU settings.

Support Notes:

Microcode updates and User's Guides are available from the IBM web site.
