2710-AF1 Printer

The Infoprint 2000 is a high-end, 110 page-per-minute, cut-sheet publishing system. It can be used as a full-function standalone duplicator, a high-speed network printer, or a channel-attached data center printer. Depending on the model and configuration ordered, the Infoprint 2000 can include a Scan Station for document scanning, a finisher and optional booklet maker for complex duplication, and a post-fuser Inserter Module for inserting printed pages into the finished document.

The Multifunctional System Printer Model MS1 replaces the NP1, RP1, and non-Intelligent Printer Data Stream (IPDS) DP1 models. Model MS1 can be configured as a high-speed duplicator or production printer when network or channel attached to a host delivering PCL 5/6, PostScript level 3, or Line Condition Datastream (LCDS)/Metacode datastreams. Host attachment for Model MS1 is available using 10/100BaseT Ethernet. System/370 Parallel or ESCON Channel is available through the BARR or Sun hardware.

The Advanced Function Printer Model AF1 replaces the Model DP1 that has IPDS installed. The Model AF1 is intended as a network or channel attached production printer supporting IPDS via the Advanced Function Common Control Unit (AFCCU). The IPDS Microcode Upgrade adds support for:

  • Continuous Output between the Finisher and High Capacity Stacker
  • Post-fuser Inserter Module
  • FICON channel attachment
  • New paper sizes: 8x10, 8.5x10, RA4, RA3, 14x17, 12x18, and 14x18
  • Selectable IP addresses
After December 14, 2001, IPDS Microcode Upgrade will be shipped as standard on all AF1 models. However, for AF1 printers shipped prior to that date feature number 4255 must be ordered to allow field installation of the upgrade code.

An optional enclosure unit for the controller, hub, modem and exposed cables is being made available for all models of the Infoprint 2000. The IPDS Microcode Upgrade, FICON attachment, and paper size kits are also being made available for Model DP1 printers that have IPDS installed.

Base Models

The Infoprint 2000 production publishing system is built upon a high-quality, high-speed, cut-sheet printer that can be used as a standalone duplicator, network printer, or host datacenter printer. With rich finishing and page insertion features and a variety of available host attachments, the Infoprint 2000 offers significant flexibility in document creation. Two models, MS1 and AF1, replace models previously available to offer simplification of ordering and configuration, and increased function. Model MS1 replaces Models RP1, NP1, and non-Intelligent Printer Data Stream (IPDS) DP1 printers. Model AF1 replaces Model DP1 printers that have IPDS installed. Models MS1 and AF1 have eliminated the need for Printer Solution Offerings available on previously announced models of the Infoprint 2000.

Model MS1 Multifunctional System Printer

Model MS1 is a multifunctional printing system that can serve as a:

  • High-speed digital duplicator in corporate reprographics centers, in-plant print shops, and the print for pay market.
  • Networked printer aimed at the large office workgroup and data center environments where PostScript, PCL, or Xerox native LCDS/metacode are the predominant data streams. This includes ERP installations like PeopleSoft and SAP as well as non-IBM data center environments.
The MS1 base model offers:
  • 110 page-per-minute (PPM) printing at 600 dots-per-inch (dpi) print quality
  • Paper input module with 3 drawers and 4,000 sheet capacity
  • Document finishing capability with an output capacity of 3,000 sheets

Feature Descriptions

High Capacity Stacker (#4620 or #4621)

The High Capacity Stacker, available on the Models MS1 and AF1, provides an additional 5000 sheet stacker. It allows copied or printed sets to be offset or straight stacked. The rotator unit in the stacker rotates paper 90 degrees for the correct orientation into the Booklet Maker of Model MS1. The High Capacity Stacker also allows for the continuous output function described under IPDS Microcode Upgrade below.

Inserter Module

The Inserter Module, available on Models MS1 (#5510 or #5511) and AF1 (#5520 or #5521) enables the placement of color documents and image rich pieces into reports, booklets, and other printed material. It allows you to create complex documents by inserting preprinted stocks (including covers, transparencies, photos, and other full-color materials) at the end of the job stream, after the print engine, for smooth, professional in-line finishing. The availability of three dedicated Inserter drawers provides:

  • 4,000 sheet capacity and continuous "load-while-running" that allows you to work longer and more productively without stoppages
  • The ability to expand your paper options using a total of six print engine supplies and three Inserter supplies
  • Protection for your valuable materials by inserting them after the print station and eliminating possible damage from fuser heat
  • High speed performance as sheets are inserted on the fly in both simplex and duplex modes
With the installation of IPDS Microcode Upgrade, available on December 14, 2001, the Inserter Module is supported on Models AF1 and DP1 that have feature number 4250 installed.

Scan Station Controller (SSC) (#4390 or #4391)

The SSC, available on Model MS1, is used to control an associated Scan Station (#4290 or #4291) or Production Scan Station (#5290 or #5291). Each scan station requires a dedicated SSC. The SSC can be either customer supplied or ordered as features from IBM.

Scan Stations (#4290 or #4291) or (#5290 or #5291)

Two different Scan Stations are offered on Infoprint 2000 Model MS1 to accommodate varying levels of scanning requirements. The Xerox 620S Scan Station (#4290 or #4291) will scan up to 20 PPM in simplex mode at 600 dpi resolution. Its automatic document feeder accepts up to 50 sheets of 20 pound stock. The Fujitsu M4097D Production Scan Station (#5290 or #5291) uses dual-optic functionality to scan both sides of the document at once for faster two-sided scanning at up to 65 PPM. This single pass scanning provides a more reliable paper path.

Each installed Scan Station requires a dedicated SSC which may be purchased as #4390, or #4391, or customer supplied.

Signature Booklet Maker (#4720 or #4721)

The Signature Booklet Maker, available on the Model MS1, allows for the creation of booklets by saddlefolding and stapling supported paper sizes.

Stacker Dolly (#4622 or #4623)

Provides an additional dolly for all models to assist in loading and unloading the high capacity stacker.

IPDS Microcode Upgrade (#4255)

After December 14, 2001, the IPDS Microcode Upgrade will ship installed on the base printer Model AF1. Feature number 4255 is a field installable feature for Model AF1 printers that ship prior to that date and for DP1 printers that have feature number 4250 installed.

IPDS Microcode Upgrade offers support for:

  • Continuous Output between the finishing unit and High Capacity Stacker to allow the marking engine to continue the printing process upon a stapler or stacker unlock or full condition. This function attempts to switch output devices on job boundaries, allowing the operator to address the reason that generated the switch without interrupting the print process. Continuous Output can be enabled or disabled by the operator. Continuous Output cannot be used while stapling or with the following paper sizes: Ledger, A3, RA3, 17x14, 12x18, or 14x18.
  • The Inserter Module allowing page insertion operations to be controlled within IPDS.
  • Additional paper sizes of 8x10, 8.5x10, RA4, RA3, 14x17, 12x18, and 14x18.
  • The ability to select one of two IP addresses to eliminate IP address conflicts.
  • Attachment to a host using the FICON attachment feature.
  • Miscellaneous additional enhancements.

Print Media Types

You should purchase quality, brand name paper and products that are made and labeled for use with high speed xeroxgraphic copiers and printers. Prepackaged, cut-size, xerographic papers will generally meet the controlled specifications for high-speed xerographic imaging, and will not vary in quality within or between shipments or lots. Large, quality-conscious manufacturers will generally stand behind their products' performance guarantees.

Print Media are divided into two types: Primary and Secondary. Primary Media Types that you can use with the Infoprint 2000 are as follows:

  • Xerographic
  • Bond
  • Book
  • Duplicator
  • Mimeo
  • Uncoated offset
  • Ledger
  • Cover
  • Index
  • Bristol
  • Other "long-grain" plain papers

    Note: When you are printing on die-cut tabs, pages must be run simplex (one-sided) to prevent sheets from jamming.

  • Punched/Holed paper of these types:
    • International and Japan Standard 2-Hole
    • U.S. and Japan 3-Hole
    • German Standard 2-and 4-Hole
    • Swedish Standard
    • U.S. 5-Hole
    • Bell.AT&T Systems 7-Hole
    • Recycled paper

      Note: If you use recycled paper, IBM recommends a recycled Xerographic or copy grade paper manufactured for use in high-speed printers. The papers that perform well have a 50% total recycled fiber content and may have 10% post consumer waste.

    Refer to the Site Preparation and Configuration Guide (MS1) or the Planning and Configuration Guide (AF1) for specific weights and sizes that are supported.
All Print Media Types not listed above are considered Secondary Types. Any paper or product that is outside the specified size, weight, or quality limitations, or is not expressly suited for use or compatibility with the xerographic imaging process is considered Secondary. Their characteristics are not within the system's operating specifications. Customers can be billed for any parts or labor damages to the Infoprint 2000 caused by using Secondary Media Types.

(#4624, #4625) Multiple Stackers Attachment (Initial / MES)
This feature provides the capability to attach up to three high-capacity output stackers. Without this feature, each printer can have only one high-capacity output stacker. More stackers reduces or eliminates stopping the printer to empty the output stackers since when one stacker is full, output flows to the next stacker.

The capacity of each High Capacity Stacker is 5,000 sheets. and the capacity of the Finisher is 3,000 sheets. The maximum output capacity with the Finisher and three High Capacity Stackers is 18,000 sheets (3,000 sheets with the Finisher plus 3 x 5,000 sheets for each High Capacity Stacker).

This feature must be ordered once to attach the second High Capacity Stacker (feature number 4620 or 4621), and ordered a second time to attach the third High Capacity Stacker. This feature is not used to attach the first High Capacity Stacker.

When a job is sent to the stacker, stacking will commence on the futhest available stacker away from the print engine. Automatic switching to another stacker occurs when a stacker is full. For example, with three stackers and stacker #1 is next to the finisher:

  • Printing starts to stacker #3
  • When stacker #3 is full, sheets are collected in stacker #2
  • When stacker #2 is full, sheets are collected in stacker #1
  • When stacker #1 is full, printer stops
  • Operation of the printer can continue after stacker #1 is full if stacker #3 has been emptied before #1 is full.
  • Number of feature required: 0
  • Maximum number of feature allowed: Two per Infoprint 2000 unless the Bookletmaker (feature number 4720, 4721) is also installed. Only two high-capacity stackers are allowed when the Bookletmaker is also installed, so the maximum number of this feature is one (1) when the Bookletmaker is installed. The Bookletmaker is available on the Model AF1.
  • Corequisites: None
  • Prerequisites:
    • IBM 2710 Model DP1, RP1, NP1, MS1, AF1
    • At least one high capacity stacker (feature number 4620 or 4621).
