Performance Specifications

The Infoprint Color 1654 Express and 1664 maximum print speeds are shown in the following table. Actual performance depends on:

  • Interface to the host (serial, parallel, network)
  • Host system and application
  • Page complexity and content
  • Certain printer options installed and selected
  • Printer memory
  • Printer resolution
  • Media size, media type setting and tray source
  • Priner usage setting

The following table specifies maximum throughput based on resolution and media size. For a complete range of media sizes supported, see Media Supported table.

Note: For media sizes smaller than those listed below, the "narrow media" paper type should be selected. Throughput may be reduced for narrow media in some circumstances to protect the printer from thermal damage.

First Copy Times are shown in the following table.

Printer Mode             Time (seconds)
------------------- --------------
From Standby(1)
Monochrome <13.0
Color <15.0
From Power Saver(1)
Monochrome <60.0
Color <60.0

Note: (1) All first copy times are measured for 4800CQ simplex printing on letter sized paper. The test job consists of a single page of simple text (approximately 20% coverage). The first copy time is defined as the elapsed time from hitting enter on the PC keyboard to the page exiting to the output bin. All tests will pick paper from the default primary input tray and the page will exit into the default primary output bin. Times may be longer if an automatic calibration is required.

Print Area

The Infoprint Color 1654/1664 printable area is limited to within 4.2 mm (0.167 in.) of top, bottom, left or right edges of the media. Any information placed outside this specified printable area will not print.

Print Quality

General Statement on Print Quality

During the life of the printer, components are subject to wear based on usage. Printers continuously operating at or near the maximum duty cycle may require service for replacement of these components to ensure high quality printing and good performance throughout the life of the printer.

Customer-replaceable maintenance items are recommended every 200,000 pages for the fuser and 120,000 pages for the ITU.

Automatic Calibration

The Infoprint Color 1654/1664 performs an automatic calibration under the following conditions: 1. at power on, 2. after 8 hours of Power Saver, 3. every 500 pages, 4. after changing a print cartridge, or 5. after changing an intermediate transfer unit. A manual calibration can be initiated by selecting "Color Adjust" from the Color Menu.

Color and Black & White Printer Controls

The Infoprint Color 1654/1664 will offer several controls that will allow the user or Printer / Network Administrators to direct the preferred output to be Color or Black & White.

Driver

A choice to print a color job in black & white is available in Infoprint Color 1654/1664 Drivers. Printing jobs in color is the default setting.

Infoprint Color 1654/1664 will offer a Black only driver (Windows NT 4.0, XP, 2000, Windows Server 2003) that will allow Printer / Network Administrators to limit the printing from some workstations to black and white only.

Op Panel

Print Mode

Allows users not utilizing an Infoprint Color 1654/1664 Driver to print a color job in black & white by selecting Black & White from the menu. The selections are Color (default setting) and Black & White. "Print Mode" is located under the Color Menu. These Op panel selections are ignored when using an Infoprint Color 1654/1664 Driver for Windows.

Printer Usage

Printer Usage modes are set to control the starting position of the Intermediate Transfer Unit (ITU) and how the printer software controls its position depending on the color content of the print job and/or the Infoprint Color 1654/1664 Driver or "Print Mode" selection. There are two selections: Max Speed and Max Yield (default setting). "Printer Usage" is located under the Setup Menu.

Processing a significant number of black pages with the ITU engaged may reduce the life of the color photoconductors and may affect the ultimate life of the color print cartridges (the photoconductor is an integral part of the cartridge).

Maximum print speed is obtained when the Driver and Print Mode are set to color (default settings) and Printer Usage is set to Max Speed. Any other selections can reduce throughput depending on the job content and the selection. It takes approximately one second to lower the ITU and approximately six seconds to raise it. The following table summarizes the effect of selections on the ITU movement.

Black & White Lock

This feature allows Printer/Network Administrators to "lock" the Infoprint Color 1654/1664 printer in a mode that will only print black 1 white with the ITU disengaged. This feature can not be overridden with any other menu or driver selection. "Black and White Lock" is located under the Setup Menu.

Print Permissions

Print Permissions allows customers to configure the Infoprint Color 1654/1664 to only print color for certain approved network user IDs. MarkVision will host a utility that allows IT administrators to enter user ID exceptions to normal printing function. User ID specific permissions are entered and stored in the printer. They can be updated at any time and as many times as customers wish. The list is limited to 100 user IDs per printer. The list is intended to be an exceptions list. (i.e. if normal use allows color printing for most people the list can be used to exclude certain users from color printing).

Conversely, normal usage could be no color printing and the list is used to allow color printing for select users who have demonstrated a business need to print color.

Toner Darkness Settings

Infoprint Color 1654/1664 will have 5 Toner Darkness levels for color and mono. The printer will ship with Printer Darkness set at 4. When printing in color, level 5 is equal to level 4.

The Toner Darkness menu is available through the operator panel under the Print Quality menu and also accessible through the IBM PostScript or PCL Driver.

Color Correction Settings

The Infoprint Color 1654/1664 will offer the following color correction settings:

Auto (default)

Applies different color correction to each object on the printed page depending upon the type of object and how the color for each object is specified.

Off

No color correction is implemented.

Manual

Allows users to customize color correction output from the Op Panel.

Applies color conversion table to produce output that approximates the colors displayed on a computer monitor using only black toner for neutral gray colors.

RGB Off

No color correction is implemented.

US CMYK

Applies color correction to approximate SWOP R color output.

Vivid CMYK

Increased color saturation for the US CMYK color correction.

CMYK Off

No color correction is implemented.

Euro CMYK

Applies color correction to approximate EuroScale color output

Color Balance Control

The Infoprint Color 1654/1664 will offer a Color Balance Control. It is a color correction option that allows the user to increase or decrease the amount of toner going to the page individually for the cyan, magenta, yellow and black color planes. The scale for the adjustments is +5 to -5.

Color Saver Mode

The Infoprint Color 1654/1664 will offer a Color Saver Mode that allows end users to print images and graphics lighter. Text will print at Toner Darkness "4", while images and graphics print at Toner Darkness "1". The Color Saver Mode is located on the Op panel under the Color Menu and may be selected from the IBM Custom PostScript or PCL Driver.

Enhance Fine Lines

In this feature, setting this option to TRUE has the effect of more faithfully representing fine detail in jobs, such as fine lines in CAD drawings. The default is false.

Coverage Estimator

The Coverage Estimator is designed to give the user an approximation of percent coverage per color when printing a composite color document. The estimation of coverage can be used to calculate an approximate cost of any given document if yield and coverage are assumed to be linear and inversely related. This tool should allow customers to discover for themselves that printing color documents on color laser printers is frequently an economical way to create these documents. Furthermore, they can discover that many black and white documents can be improved for a nominal increase in cost.

The Coverage Estimator allows end users to estimate the percent coverage of cyan, magenta, yellow and black on a page. The estimates will be printed on the page. The Coverage Estimator is available from the Op Panel under the utility menu.

The Coverage Estimator is intended to only estimate the coverage on a given page. For all toner colors that are used, the minimum percentage reported will be two percent. Reported values may vary from printer to printer. The accuracy of the estimates may be affected by the fullness of the print cartridges, environmental conditions, media type, application, application settings, driver, driver settings, and the content of the page. IBM makes no claim as to the accuracy of the estimated percents.

Color Samples

To assist users in selecting the colors to be printed, they can print color sample pages for each of the RGB and CMYK color conversion tables used in the printer. The color sample pages consist of a series of colored boxes along with the RGB and CMYK combination that creates the color observed for each particular box. These pages can be useful in helping users decide which RGB or CMYK combinations to use in their software applications to create the desired printed color output.

Data Streams

The Infoprint Color 1654/1664 supports the following data streams:

  • PostScript Level 3 Emulation
  • PCL 6 Emulation

Additional Media Guidelines

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 170 deg C (338 deg F) fusing temperature.
  • Preprinted forms and letterheads must be able to withstand 170 degrees C (338 degrees F) fusing temperature and 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 the Infoprint Color 1654 and 1664.
  • Unsuitable papers include multipart forms and documents; chemically treated papers; coated, synthetic and thermal papers, A5 paper less than 80 gsm recycled paper less than 75 gsm; and preprinted papers requiring a high degree of registration.
  • Recycled paper less than 80gsm (21lb) 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: 60 g/m2 (16 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, printing on new 90 g/m2 (24 lb.) sulfite or 25% cotton bond envelopes is recommended.
    • Under high humidity conditions (over 60%), envelopes may seal during printing.

Transparencies

  • Use letter or A4-size sheets only.
  • Transparencies specifically designed for xerographic copy machines or laser printers may be used with the Infoprint Color 1654 and 1664.

Labels

Labels should be selected using guidelines found in the User's Reference, Complete Printer Reference, and tested for acceptability.

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 V5R2 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.

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

Note: See the appropriate User's Guide for configuration instructions.

Note: When the printer is emulating an IBM printer, the function supported depends on the IBM host software.

For Direct Network Attachment - Hardware Compatibility

When the printer contains an optional Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe, it attaches to a network using one of the following MarkNet print servers:

  • Standard Ethernet (100BaseTX/10BaseT) Network port in the printer
  • MarkNet(TM) N2000 Series print servers
  • MarkNet X2000 Series print servers (AFP/IPDS only)
  • MarkNet Pro print servers (AFP/IPDS only)

The optional MarkNet print servers support Ethernet 10BaseT/10Base2 and Ethernet 100BaseTX/10BaseT with the following Network Operating Systems: Novell NetWare (including NetWare Directory Services - NDS and NDPS), Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Server, Microsoft Windows 2000 Server and Advanced Server, EtherTalk, and the following UNIX platforms: Caldera OpenLinux, IBM AIX, Compaq Tru64 (Digital), HP-UX, Red Hat Linux, SCO OpenServer, UnixWare, SGI IRIX, Sun Solaris, Sun Solaris x86, SuSE Linux and TurboLinux.

Note: MarkNet N2000 microcode level 3.15.x or later is required for SCS/TNe support.

Note: For OptraImage network ports, microcode level 5.15.x or later is required for SCS/TNe support.

Note: Any MarkNet X2000 microcode level provides AFP/IPDS support only.

Note: For IPDS printing, a minimum of 16MB of printer memory is required.

Software Compatibility for AFP/IPDS Printing over TCP/IP

The IBM host software requirements for AFP/IPDS printing when the printer is emulating an IBM 381x, 43xx, 311x or 4028 printer are:

  • OS/400 V5R2 or later through PSF/400 (See Note).

Note: With OS/400 V5R2, to print IPDS over TCP/IP through PSF/400.

Software Compatibility for SCS LU1 Printing over TCP/IP

The IBM iSeries software requirements for TN5250e SCS (LU1) printing using up to 4 sessions when the printer is emulating an IBM 3812-01 printer are:

  • OS/400 V5R2 or later with all PTFs applied

Note: Up to four (4) TN5250e sessions from multiple hosts are supported; however the SCS Menu options settings for all 4 sessions are the same.

The IBM mainframe software requirements for TN3270e SCS (LU1) printing using one session when the printer is emulating an IBM 3287 printer are:

  • IBM Communications Server (CS) for OS/390 or z/OS Version 2 Release 5 or later on ESA systems (Note: all appropriate APARs must be applied)
  • TCP/IP for VM/ESA Version 2 Release 4 or later (function level 310 or later)
  • TCP/IP for VSE/ESA V1 R3 or later using General Print Server Feature
  • Using Cisco 7500 Series Routers

SCS LU1 Printing using a Gateway and TCP/IP

If TN3270E capable SNA gateway software supports the TN3270E protocol according to RFC 2355, then a TN3270e session can be used to print SCS jobs directly from a mainframe or iSeries. Examples of these gateways are:

  • IBM SecureWay Communications Server 6.0.2 for Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, AIX, UnixWare 7, OS/2 Warp
  • Microsoft NetResults SNA Server 4.0
  • Novell NetWare for SAA 4 as either a TN3270E Server or TN5250 Server
  • Attachmate E-Vantage SNA Gateway 2.0
  • Barr Systems Communications Server
  • Cisco TN3270 Server
  • OpenConnect using the WebConnect SNA Access Server or SNA Print Server

Details on Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe Emulation

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:

  • Full color printing using Function set 45
  • PDF417 2D bar code, Data Matrix, MaxiCode bar code support, QR code 2D barcode and the UCC/EAN 128 barcode
  • Capturing bitmap or outline fonts to hard disk or to flash memory resulting in reduced network traffic over LAN.
  • 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.
  • One LAN printer can print LAN (PostScript, PCL, etc) and mainframe or iSeries documents (AFP/IPDS, SCS).
  • Supports IPDS color commands. The colors are transformed to black or shades of gray, based upon the IPDS menu Color Mode setting.
  • IPDS N-ups and N-up Explicit Page Placement support. Print 1 to 4 pages per side or up to 8 pages per sheet when printing duplex.
  • Download DBCS outline and bitmap fonts from the host in IPDS. Support for Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean and Japanese is provided.
  • Automatic resolution sensing for IPDS when the Host Resolution menu is set to Auto. Selecting Auto allows 240, 300 and 600 dpi resources to be downloaded from the host.
  • Product Identifier Self Defining Field Information is returned to the host with IPDS. Device type, serial number , device code levels and device name are returned to the host. These may be displayed at the host to aid in device location and maintenance.

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. 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 can save IPDS resources to improve performance for complex IPDS print jobs with host resources such as fonts, overlays or page segments.

DBCS characters in Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Korean, and Japanese can be downloaded and printed from the host. DBCS fonts may be stored in flash memory or hard disk using the Font Capture feature to reduce network traffic and transmission time. The separate DBCS Fonts Cards canot be used in conjunction with the Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe.

The Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe cannot be used in the Infoprint Color 1654/1664 laser printer in conjunction with the Bar Code Card.

The IPDS emulation supports the IPDS data and resource towers. Fonts can be downloaded, captured and saved to hard disk or flash memory in the printer. The US Postal Service POSTNET barcode, PLANET barcode and the euro currency symbol are supported within IPDS.

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