Description

Product/Feature Overview

These models of the Infoprint 4100 family of printers are designed for very-high-throughput production printing environments where print speed is a critical factor. Building upon the many industry-leading features of the Infoprint 4000 and 4100 families of printers, the new models of the Infoprint 4100 offer increased speed, an Infoprint POWER Controller, optional switchable print speeds, a MICR Customer Changeable Developer, and high-speed connectivity options.

Infoprint POWER Controller

The Infoprint POWER Controller features a new architecture. The new architecture is designed to support very high speed rasterization requirement for both the black & white and the full color AFP environment.

The controller utilizes AFP architecture to cache and re-use objects and provides a new level of support for multiprocessors. The Infoprint POWER Controller design allows for a broad range of scalability needed for future production printing environments with full color.

Wide Format

The maximum forms width of the Infoprint 4100 family - 19.5 inches (495.3 mm) - allows the printing of 3-up 6x9 or A5 statements. The ability to print 3-up statements lowers the total cost of printing and provides for very high throughput in your printing operations.

The maximum print width is 19.0 inches (482.6 mm) with tractorless (pinless) operation and 18.5 inches (469.9 mm) with pin-feed operation.

Speed Switch

The Infoprint 4100 Models HS3 and HD5/6 have the ability to be switched to a lower speed by an operator for applications such as MICR printing.

Print Speed

The Infoprint 4100 Models HS3 and HD5/6, with the speed switch in the higher speed setting, have continuous forms throughput speeds up to:

  • 1440 ipm (duplex 2-up, 8.5-x 11-inch, side-by-side)
  • 1354 ipm (duplex 2-up, A4, side-by-side)
  • 2640 ipm (duplex 3-up, 6-x 9-inch, side-by-side)
  • 2874 ipm (duplex 3-up, A5, side-by-side)
  • 720 ipm (simplex 2-up, 8.5-x 11-inch, side-by-side)
  • 677 ipm (simplex 2-up, A4, side-by-side)
  • 1320 ipm (simplex 3-up, 6-x 9-inch, side-by-side)
  • 1437 ipm (simplex 3-up, A5, side-by-side)

The Infoprint 4100 Models HS3 and HD5/6, with the speed switch in the lower speed setting, have continuous forms throughput speeds up to:

  • 1220 ipm (duplex 2-up, 8.5-x 11-inch, side-by-side)
  • 1148 ipm (duplex 2-up, A4, side-by-side)
  • 2238 ipm (duplex 3-up, 6-x 9-inch, side-by-side)
  • 2436 ipm (duplex 3-up, A5, side-by-side)
  • 610 ipm (simplex 2-up, 8.5-x 11-inch, side-by-side)
  • 574 ipm (simplex 2-up, A4, side-by-side)
  • 1119 ipm (simplex 3-up, 6-x 9-inch side-by-side)
  • 1218 ipm (simplex 3-up, A5, side-by-side)

Integrated Tractor and Tractorless (Pinless) Paper Path

The Infoprint 4100 was developed with an integrated tractorless paper path.

Tractorless printing can reduce operational costs by allowing you to order paper directly from a mill without the need to order rolls that have been converted by having tractor holes added. In addition, waste is reduced as there is no need to trim tractor strips from the edges of the form after printing.

The Infoprint 4100 has the ability to register tractorless forms to within 1.5 mm, anywhere on the page from the opposite side. This enables accurate placing of information on preprinted forms.

Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) CCD for the Infoprint 4100 Family

The MICR Customer Changeable Developer (CCD) on the Infoprint 4100 enables you to print MICR applications. MICR printing requires that the speed switch (#9276, 4276) be in the slower position.

This feature allows you to:

  • Easily switch from printing production black toner applications to printing MICR checks simply by switching the developer
  • Obtain exceptional MICR read rates by using the print quality enhancements and 600 dpi output of the Infoprint 4100 along with outline MICR fonts
  • Print the same MICR applications on both the Infoprint 4000 and 4100 families

Supported MICR configurations include:

  • HS3 Simplex
  • HD5/6 Duplex with the MICR CCD in printer 1 only
  • HD5/6 Dual Simplex with MICR CCD in both printers

Limitations that apply to MICR printing are listed in the Supplementary information section of this letter.

Save Pages

Save Pages is standard on the Models HD5/6 and is used while printing in Print-On-Demand (POD) mode. POD mode requires an Infoprint Manager Server. In POD mode, pages are spooled to the Infoprint POWER Controller hard drives and later printed. The Save Pages function is available only in duplex systems.

Advantages of POD mode with Save Pages include:

  • Normally, back-hitching and blank pages are eliminated since rasterized pages are spooled to the Infoprint POWER Controller hard drives and later printed.
  • Multiple copies of the same pages can be printed without re-RIPping the pages.

E-Mail Alert Notifications

The Infoprint POWER Controller provides the capability to send alert messages based on events occurring in the printer. The three types of email notification are:

  • General Action Items: These are interventions that may normally be resolved by an operator or administrator - For example: paper path jams, transfer station open, drum cover open, tension arm up
  • Supplies Alerts: These are usually warnings related to consumables -such as: add toner, toner collection full, end of forms, toner supply low, change fine filter, or fuser oil empty
  • ServiceAlerts: This class of alerts may require intervention by an IBM Service Representative. These include: Hot roll lamp failures, engine communications problems, controller failures, and print engine failures

This Email notification requires that an SMTP mail server must be available on the network and its hostname must also be configured in the printer.

Where appropriate, notification can be provided to multiple email destinations.

See the "Infoprint 4100 Models with the Infoprint POWER Controller Operator Console: Planning and Configuration Guide" manual for more information.

Simplex Printing

The Infoprint 4100 Model HS3 is the follow-on to the Infoprint 4100 Model HS2 and provides increased speed for simplex-only printing.

Up to four post-processing devices may be connected to the 4100 HS3.

These printers attach to a host system through the control unit, which controls the printer.

Duplex Printing

These models of the Infoprint 4100 duplex family consist of two printers (the HD5 with the HD6) that work together to print on both sides of the media.

Duplex printing is achieved by arranging the two printers in series, separated by a Buffer/Flipper Unit, so that the continuous forms exiting from the first printer go through a Buffer/Flipper Unit that turns the forms over (inverts them) before threading them through the second printer. The first printer in the paper path prints one side of a form; the second printer in the paper path prints the other side of the form. The Infoprint 4100 duplex systems can be used in the following ways:

  • Duplex: Uses two printers (Printer 1 prints on one side of the form and Printer 2 prints on the other side of the form).
  • Simplex: Uses both printers as in duplex operation, but prints only with one printer; forms pass through the other printer.
  • Dual Simplex: Uses both printers separately in simplex mode; each printer is independent of the other and can print different jobs at the same time. The control unit housed in the second printer controls both printers.

When running duplex printing applications, both printers in the configuration are operating at the same ipm speed. The total speed or ipm of the subsystem is then twice the ipm of an individual printer, counting both the front and back sides of the forms.

Both printers in the configuration attach to a host system through the same control unit, which controls both printers simultaneously and is physically attached to Printer 2 in the configuration.

Up to four preprocessing/postprocessing devices may be connected to Printer 1 (Model HD5), while Printer 2 (Model HD6) may have three devices connected.

Streamlined Imposition Workflow

The Infoprint 4100 in POD mode, together with Infoprint Manager for AIX, supports an automated, streamlined imposition workflow. Highlights are:

  • Industry-standard impositioning interface allows use of various third-party impositioning products.
  • Industry-standard Output Prepress Interface (OPI) server allows interchange between high-and low-resolution versions of a given image, ensuring consistency between displayed and printed images.
  • RIPped pages and high-resolution images are downloaded to printer cache before printing starts so that printing is normally done at rated speed.
  • Page images are sent to the printer only when changed; image adjustment, orientation change, and printer mark (that is, crop mark, folding mark) changes do not require job resubmission.
  • The printer can be preloaded with page images of several jobs to optimize production printing.

Infoprint POWER Controller Console

The Infoprint POWER Controller includes a user-friendly operator console with a graphic user interface (GUI).

The operator console hardware consists of a flat-panel, touch-screen display with a keyboard and mouse. The large flat-panel display provides clear, easily recognizable commands and functions. The keyboard and mouse expand the operator interface alternatives.

The GUI provides simple, standard buttons and functions for all capabilities. Special emphasis has been placed on reducing the number of menus and number of clicks that an operator must go through in order to perform a task.

Infoprint Operator Control

Infoprint Operator Control allows operators to automate the control of critical basic printer parameters through the use of the IBM exclusive Infoprint Operations Architecture. Infoprint Operations Architecture is integral to the Infoprint POWER Controller. Infoprint Operator Control allows operators to store the critical printer parameters through the Infoprint Operations Architecture at the printer and then invoke them when the operator assigns a specific Form Definition on the printer. The critical process parameters that are currently automated include:

  • Contrast Values of C1 (lightest) to C7 (darkest)
  • Preheat Platen Temperature
  • Hot Roll Temperature
  • Hot Roll Oil Rate
  • Backup Idler Roll Engage/Disengage
  • Oil Belt Speed

Printing Color Jobs on the Infoprint 4100

Grayscale printing is a standard feature on all Infoprint 4100 Printers, and enables the simulation of color printing by using different tones (shades) of gray to represent different colors. Using this capability, the Infoprint 4100 can print Advanced Function Printing (AFP) full color text (PTOCA), full color business graphics (GOCA), single color backgrounds for AFP objects, and single color AFP images (IOCA FS10 and IM image) in grayscale without modification.

Full color AFP images (IOCA FS45) must currently be converted to black and white halftones before printing on the 4100. This can be accomplished easily with Infoprint Manager using the provided img2afp utility.

Customer Changeable Developer (CCD)

This solution allows customer operators to easily remove and install developer units, making it easy to change from printing standard black toner production jobs to printing MICR checks.

Additional Customer Changeable Developers (#4480 - Black, #4481 - MICR)

These features provide additional developer units that can be installed by an operator to replace the developer unit initially shipped with an Infoprint 4100 printer. Each Additional CCD is unique to one printer. For example, to have additional CCDs for three printers requires that this feature be ordered for each of the three printers.

The Additional CCD feature consists of an operator-installable developer and one developer cart to carry the CCD provided by this feature.

When this feature is ordered, it may be necessary to order a Developer Cart (#4404). This extra Developer Cart is only needed once per print room to remove and store the CCD initially installed in the printer.

These features can be ordered with an IBM Infoprint 4100 printer, or installed in the field.

Developer Cart (#4404)

In addition to the Developer Cart shipped with the Additional CCD feature (#4480, #4481), one additional Developer Cart is required per print room for the removal of the CCD that was initially installed in the printer.

The developer carts are used so that the developer unit does not have to be lifted or carried by the operator. The cart attaches to the printer so that the developer unit can slide onto the cart when it is being switched. Likewise, the new developer unit can be easily slid off the cart and installed in the printer.

Developer carts can be used with any developer. Once a CCD has been installed in a printer, the cart that was shipped with the CCD can be used to remove a CCD from another printer. Developer units are unique to a given printer.

Enhanced Toner Loading

This feature allows the operator to add toner to the printer while it is operating. The operator is prompted by an operator console message that the toner supply is low. There is no need to stop printing in order to add additional toner.

Supplies

The supplies used by the Infoprint 4100 Models HS3 and HD5/6 are listed in the Supplementary information.

Signature Page (#4553, #4554)

This is an optional feature that extends the maximum forms length to 54 inches.

This feature includes a forms buffer assembly that may require an additional 0.3 to 0.9 m (1 to 3 feet) of floor space. Whether or not additional floor space is required will depend on the current distance between engines, the printer system configuration, and which tower is being used.

Limitations:

  • When using the extended form lengths (up to 1.37 meter or 54 inches) supported by this feature, an additional 0.3 to 0.9 meters (1 to 3 feet) may be required in floor space for the installation of an extended forms length buffer. Whether additional floor space is required will depend on the current distance between engines, the printer system configuration, and which tower is being used. This feature requires the performance enhancement feature.
  • This feature requires the HD6 IPDS Performance Upgrade (#4264 or 4265).

Forms Identification (#4464)

The Forms Identification feature ensures that the form required for a specific application, or print job, is actually the form loaded in the selected printer.

The value of the Forms Identification feature includes increased operations performance and quality, reduced operations costs, and improved operations control.

The Forms Identification feature reads a preprinted bar code as the form is moving through the printer. The form barcode is checked at two levels:

  • First, it is checked at the host where the form bar code specified in the Define Form configuration is compared to the form defined by VFYSETUP.
  • Second, the bar code specified in the Define Form configuration is compared to the form number read from the preprinted barcode on the loaded form.

If the forms identification bar code specified in the Define Form configuration does not match the forms identification number specified by the VFYSETUP, then the host will not send the job to the printer. Therefore, the forms identification bar code specified in the Define Form configuration must match the forms identification number read from the loaded form or the printer is stopped with a form mismatch error.

The use of this feature requires that a bar code be preprinted on the forms. The bar code is a custom binary bar code that can represent up to 65,535 decimal form numbers. For those customers who are using alpha-numeric form numbers, some restrictions do apply. The alpha characters are limited to A, B, C, D, E, and F, and the number is limited to 4 characters. When using the alpha characters for specifically assigned purposes, the form number is assumed to be hexadecimal. The translation from form number to bar code is directly from that 4-character hexadecimal form number to the binary bar code. When using alpha characters in the form number, you must take care not to duplicate the decimal equivalent form number.

A specification describing the bar code, its position, and orientation is available in the latest Form Design Reference. Also, IBM Professional Services can be contracted to produce the required artworks for you and your forms vendor, as well as assist you in FORMDEF updates. The Application Solutions Group (IBM Professional Services) can be contacted by calling 303-924-6700, or through:

  • www.ibm.com/printers

This feature consists of a bar code reader, associated electronics, mounting brackets, cabling, and microcode, which are ordered and installed on a per-print-engine basis.

In a duplex system, if only printing duplex print jobs, only one feature is necessary and it must be ordered and installed in print engine 1. If the duplex system is also being used in the dual-simplex mode, and forms identification is required, then two features, one feature for print engine 1 and one feature for print engine 2, must be ordered and installed.

This feature requires the use of one pre/post-processing slot. Each print engine has four pre/post-processing attachment card slots.

On all Infoprint 4100 engines one slot is used by the standard pre/post-processing attachment card, and other slots may be used by additional pre/post-processing attachment features (#4710 or #4720).

Integrated 10/100/1000 BaseT (Gigabit Ethernet) Port in Controller

A 10/100/1000 BaseT or Gigabit Ethernet port, integrated into the control unit, is standard in the HS3 and HD6 processors (#9244, 9245, 4264, and 4265).

This Ethernet port can be used for functions such as print data, SNMP, and such features as Infoprint Manager Operations on the Controller (#4560) or the Productivity Tracking Feature (#4565) for true two-way communication.

If other Ethernet attachments are ordered, such as a Gigabit Ethernet TX feature, only one of these Ethernet ports can be enabled at one time for the purpose of receiving print data. However, the other port can be used for other functions such as SNMP.

Attachment features

There are two card slots in the printer controller on the Models HS3 and HD6 for additional adapters. (in addition to the Integrated Ethernet Adapter described above).

On the Models HS3 and HD6, the two adapters can be any combination of supported adapters.

The optional adapters for the Infoprint POWER Controller processors for the Infoprint 4100 Models HS3 and HD6 are:

    Description (Initial Order and Mes)    Feature

Gigabit Ethernet TX (Copper) - PCI-X 6482
?

The above adapters are available with new machines or added as MES field upgrades.

Flash Memory Device (#4660)

This feature provides a 245 Mbyte USB Flash Drive that plugs into the USB hub in the keyboard. It is used to save snapshot and trace information.

One Flash Memory Device for customer use is shipped with each Printer Infoprint POWER Controller.

HD5/6 Buffer/Flipper Summary

The following table summarizes the Buffer/Flippers required for the Infoprint 4100 Models HD5/6 duplex configurations.

Because of the higher paper speed, more space is required between the print engines than on the HD3/4. More space is also required between print engine #2 and Pre/Post equipment.

See the "Infoprint 4100 Models with the Infoprint POWER Controller Operator Console: Planning and Configuration Guide" for detailed printer lay-out diagrams.

Paper Types

The Infoprint 4100 printing system is designed to print on roll-feed paper. One of the key factors in achieving optimum print quality is the quality of the paper used.

Certain applications may cause excessive wear or premature failure of some components of the Infoprint 4100. In these situations, a customer with maintenance provided under the IBM Customer Agreement of IBM Machines may be responsible for additional maintenance charges.

Print Quality Enhancement

The Infoprint 4100 Models HS3 and HD5/6 have IBM's exclusive Digital Print Quality Enhancement (PQE) that consists of edge smoothing, fine fidelity protection, and boldness control. This newly designed Digital PQE is able to produce even finer edge smoothing and sharper characters then previous generations of IBM's Print Quality Enhancement.

Edge smoothing is the reduction of the "stair-stepping" appearance of diagonal lines. Edge smoothing is accomplished in a way similar to the Infoprint 4000 printers.

Fine fidelity protection preserves the fine details in the print, and consists primarily of avoiding the fill-in of single-pel white areas to be developed. This is the greatest benefit in the reproduction of font serifs and the preservation of the details of narrow intersections of lines.

The boldness control is independent of the settings of machine parameters. Therefore, parameters can be adjusted to compensate for other changing conditions within a printer without affecting the boldness. This allows for bolder-looking print without using extra toner and for darker solid areas without filling in the fine white details.

Print contrast control allows the operator to adjust print darkness. Achieving optimum print quality is dependent upon paper quality.

Paper Handling

  • Input Continuous Forms:

    The Infoprint 4100 Models HS3 and HD5/6 require roll-feed continuous forms paper for maximum productivity.

    The pre/post-processing interface (or the Advanced post-processing) feature provides for the attachment of high-capacity, roll-feed devices that allow full utilization of the high-productivity capabilities of the IBM Infoprint 4100 family. Roll-feed input devices enable continuous printing for several hours between paper loading.

    Note: One pre/post-processing interface feature is standard on Infoprint 4100 models. Additional features can be added.

  • Continuous Forms Output:

    Output stackers, and other post-processing equipment, may be attached via pre/post-processing interfaces.

Tall Buffer/Flipper Unit (#9407 - Initial, #4407 - MES)

A buffer/flipper unit is used to guide the paper from the first printer to the second printer in a dual-printer configuration. The Tall Buffer / Flipper Unit is required on all HD5/6 configurations.

This buffer/flipper allows the forms to pass from the first engine (HD5) to the second (HD6) while being flipped so that each engine prints on a different side of the form. The Tall Buffer/ Flipper can be specified with an HD5 initial order or added as an MES feature.

Both this buffer/flipper and the Air-bearing (#9408, 4408) buffer/flipper are required in both the in-line and "U" configurations with the HD5/6.

Only the Tall buffer/flipper is required for "H" and Left-angle configurations.

Air Bearing Buffer Flipper Unit (#9408 - Initial, #4408 - MES)

The Air Bearing Buffer / Flipper Unit is available as a specify feature code or as a MES feature. This feature is needed when the HD5 and HD6 are set up in an in-line or "L" configuration.

This feature consists of a powered buffer/flipper with air bearings that work to provide an 'air cushion' to reduce friction in the paper path while also flipping the paper between engines.

This feature is not compatible when HD4/5 printers are set up in a left-angle or H" configuration.

Both this buffer/flipper and the Tall buffer/flipper (#9407, 4407) are required for both the in-line and "U" configurations with the HD5/6.

MICR Limitations

The following limitations apply to the Infoprint 4100 Models HS3, HD5, and HD6 MICR Printing

  • MICR is not supported with the speed switch in the fast setting.
  • MICR is not supported in tractorless (pinless) mode.
  • In duplex mode, MICR toner can be used only in the first Infoprint 4100 engine (HD5). In dual simplex mode, MICR can be used in both engines.
  • The MICR CCD for the Infoprint 4100 cannot be switched to another type of toner (black, etc.). Additional CCDs can be purchased for additional types of toner.
  • Paper weight support is limited to 75 to 90 gsm (20 to 24 lb bond) paper. This is a banking industry standard for check stock.
  • On boxed paper with MICR toner, the printed MICR line cannot be within 1/2 inch of the box-fold perforation (bottom or top of page).
  • Paper must meet the IBM Forms Design Reference Guide (G544-3921) specifications for Infoprint 4100 family printers.
  • CCDs can not be interchanged between printer engines. A CCD is dedicated to one serial-numbered engine.
  • MICR Fonts for the Infoprint 4100 must be downloaded at:
    • http://www.printers.ibm.com
    1. Choose "Drivers and Downloads"
    2. Then "Infoprint 4100"
  • Checks must be printed so that the text is oriented in the scan direction.

Pre/Post-Processing Interface (#4710)

One pre/post-processing interface is standard on each model of the Infoprint 4100 printing system.

This feature provides the electrical interface for attachment of OEM pre-and post-processing equipment to the IBM Infoprint 4100. This is the same feature that currently exists on the IBM Infoprint 4000 printers.

The pre/post-processing interface feature provides control of add-on pre/post-processing devices (such as continuous forms stackers, envelope inserting equipment, roll-feed equipment, and others).

In the Infoprint 4100 Models HS3, HD5, and HD6 up to three pre/post-processing interfaces (#4710 or #4720), in addition to the standard pre/post-processing interface, may be ordered. Since there is a maximum of one advanced pre/post-processing interface (#4720) per printer, a combination of one #4720 and two #4710 can also be ordered.

The need for one or more of these features is totally dependent on the post-processing equipment used with the printer. Coordination with the selected post-processing vendor is recommended when planning for the appropriate features.

Advanced Function Post-Processing Interface (#4720)

This feature provides the electrical interface for attachment of OEM post-processing equipment to the Infoprint 4100. In addition, it provides architected software and communications control of add-on pre/post-processing devices.

This feature may co-reside with feature number 4710. One of this feature number may be ordered per Infoprint 4100 model.

This feature is required for support of the Select Medium Modifications (SMM) command.

IPDS supports a command, Select Medium Modifications (SMM), which selects one or more actions or modifications to be taken or inhibited on the current sheet of physical media (paper) being processed by post-processing equipment. SMM is supported for both production and POD printing environments.

SMM support is not available on all PSF platforms. (Refer to Data Stream and Object Architectures, IPDS Reference, S544-3417.)

Note: While the function of this feature number 4720 is similar to that of feature number 4720 for the Infoprint 4000 family, the actual hardware is different. Previous feature number 4720 cannot be used with the Infoprint 4100.

Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and Bar Codes

The Infoprint 4100 printing system can be used to print OCR and bar code documents when attached to host environments. The Infoprint POWER Controller supports Bar Code Object Content Architecture (BCOCA), which enables the printing of bar codes without special bar code fonts. The OCR and bar codes produced by the Infoprint 4100 are designed to meet OCR and bar code printing standards. However, because of the variability of OCR readers and bar code scanners, IBM advises that customers evaluate the Infoprint 4100's OCR and bar code output in their application environment. The Infoprint 4100 supports Postal Bar Codes (requires local certification by USPS). Refer to the Forms Design Reference for Continuous Forms Printers (G544-3921) for more detailed OCR and bar code information.

The Infoprint 4100 printing system supports the following 1-Dimensional BCOCA bar code symbologies:

  • Code 39 (3-of-9 Code), AIM USS-39
  • MSI (modified plessey code)
  • UPC/CGPC -- Version A

Infoprint POWER Controller Description/Function

The Infoprint 4100 Infoprint POWER Controller contains the control, attachment, and operator interface hardware and microcode. Major hardware components are an IBM pSeries processor, a Mechanism Interface Card (MIC), a Print Quality Enhancement Card (PQE), and the Enhanced Operator Console.

The MIC is attached to the IBM pSeries processor via Fiber Channel cables, and is used to interface the print engine, operator panel, and pre/post-processing interfaces. The operator console and host attachments are attached directly to the IBM pSeries processor.

The operator console consists of an IBM color flat-panel touch-screen display and various input devices including the touch-screen, keyboard, and mouse.

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Support

The Infoprint 4100 supports the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Management Information Base (MIB) for printers (RFC 1759). All mandatory Groups in the Printer MIB and required portions on MIB II (RFC 1213) and the Host Resources MIB (RFC 1514) are supported.

SNMP is used by IBM's Infoprint Workflow offerings to monitor printers and provide information on printer status.

Some examples of the printer status and information that can be monitored using SNMP are:

On-line/Off-line, idle/printing, errors (SRCs: such as out of toner, paper jam, out of paper), printer configuration, capacity, and number of pages printed.

Select Medium Modifications (SMM)

IPDS supports a Select Medium Modifications (SMM) command that, in conjunction with the Infoprint POWER Controller and the MIC, selects one or more actions or modifications to be taken or inhibited on the current sheet of physical media (paper) being processed by post-processing equipment. See the Data Stream and Object Architectures, IPDS Reference (S544-3417) for details.

The SMM command is used to invoke processing options through the Advanced Function Post-processing Interface feature (#4720).

Page Positioning Function: Basic N-Up Page Positioning

With basic N-up page positioning, you can print up to four pages in partitions on each side of a form, which enables you to print much more data on a form, saving printer-usage costs, paper, and storage space. For example with 3-up, three pages can be printed in partitions on the front side and, if duplexing, another three pages can be printed in partitions on the back side.

Enhanced N-Up Page Positioning

With enhanced N-up page positioning, you can place up to eight pages at any location on a form, in any supported orientation and position (partitions are not used and pages can even overlap each other). For example, three pages can be placed on the front side and five pages on the back side; for a more extreme example, all eight pages can be placed on the back side with nothing on the front side.

Cut Sheet Emulation (CSE)

CSE is an option on the printer console that automatically invokes an Enhanced N-up arrangement to emulate two side-by-side sheets of cut paper. Duplex jobs print page 2 on the back of page 1 and page 4 on the back of page 3. CSE provides for different page arrangements to accommodate different post-processing requirements. Pages can be placed sequentially from left to right or right to left, and right side up or upside down. CSE requires Print Services Facility (PSF) support. The console option for CSE has no effect unless the printer has PSF that supports CSE.

When the CSE option is enabled, all jobs sent to the printer print 2-up, side-by-side except when:

  • N-up Page Positioning is specified in the form definition. In this case, the N-up specification is used and CSE is ignored.
  • The PSF print driver enables page-size verification and disables CSE for pages that do not fit 2-up.

CSE can now be preset in the Assign Form Definition. Now when a form definition is assigned CSE, the correct CSE orientation is automatically set, reducing setup time and eliminating CSE setup error.

Options for Multiple-up Printing

With the addition of CSE, you now have several options for formatting multiple-up application pages on a single printer sheet:

  • Multiple-up defined in the page definition resource
  • N-up defined in the form definition resource
  • CSE selected at the Operator Console

Applications printing simple line data that use the same formatting for each page can easily be handled with traditional multiple-up. They can be handled as well by N-up Page Positioning and CSE if they do not require more than four pages for N-up, or more than two for CSE on printers that support N-up and CSE.

CSE can be used whenever the desired output is two pages of equal size, side by side on the same sheet. CSE is especially useful for moving applications for 8.5-inch x 11-inch forms to 2-up printing 11-inch x 17-inch forms. No change is required to the AFP form definition resource to enable CSE 2-up printing. The same form definition can be used for printing 1-up on 8.5-inch x 11-inch forms or 2-up on 11-inch x 17-inch forms.

N-up Page Positioning is needed for applications that require pages of different sizes or page positioning other than 2-up side by side. Instructions must be placed in the form definition for N-up printing.

Font Capability

The Infoprint 4100 supports outline fonts for both double-byte (DBCS) and single-byte (SBCS) character sets. Since outline fonts are scalable and resolution independent, the same fonts can be used for printing at any point size and at either 480 dpi or 600 dpi in any of the four supported print rotations. A wide range of outline font type styles in a variety of language families are also available as resident fonts on the printers hard disk. Outline fonts can be downloaded to the printer from PSF libraries.

Raster pattern fonts at 240 dpi and 300 dpi are supported in SBCS and DBCS formats when printing with either 480 dpi or 600 dpi resolution, respectively. However, for best character appearance, raster pattern fonts at 240 dpi are best supported when printing in 480 dpi resolution and 300 dpi raster fonts are best supported when printing in 600 dpi resolution.

Raster fonts must be downloaded from PSF host libraries in the resolution and size required for printing. Font sizes from 4 to 72 points (approximately 1-inch high) are supported. You must verify the legibility of the 4-point font sets in their applications. Only one copy of a font is required for all four font rotations in the printer. The font is oriented for printing at print time.

Raster fonts are supported by all PSF platforms. Printer-resident outline fonts are supported by the latest maintenance levels of all PSFs relevant to the Infoprint 4100. Host-downloaded outline fonts will be supported by all PSF platforms.

Human Factors

The Infoprint 4100 is designed for efficient ease of operation, service, and installation. Accepted human factors principles have been applied specifically to frequent access areas such as automatic paper threading and the operator interfaces. The operator flat-panel touch-screen, redesigned GUI, and associated keyboard and mouse are intended to improve and enhance the human interface with the printing system.

Environment Impact Assessment Information

  • Volatile organic compounds emitted from the Infoprint 4100 pose no health concern either singularly or collectively at various toner coverages tested.
  • The Infoprint 4100's toner and developer mix does not present environmental problems provided the same care is taken with the mix as with other electrophotographic materials of a similar nature.
  • The toner collected in the toner waste bottle and fine filter poses no health and environmental problems, provided the same care is taken with the bottle and the filter as with other similar electrophotographic materials.
  • The selenium carryout with used brushes poses no disposal problems as per the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines. The used brushes can be placed in the normal trash to be disposed of in the local landfill.
  • The photoconductor drum data obtained to date reveals no concerns to the environment. A drum return plan has been implemented to ensure the used drums are returned to the manufacturer.
  • The dermal and hypersensitivity tests of the toner reveal no health concerns. These studies were conducted utilizing (or implementing) the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) good laboratory practices regulations.

Print-to-Perforation Capability

The Infoprint 4100 is designed to print to the perforation without degrading speed. As with other print-to-perforation printers, print quality degradation will occur near the perforation with fanfold paper that "tents" (that is, retains a "memory" of the fold). There will be no degradation at distances from the perforation of 1/3 inch (8.5 mm) for character data, and 1/2 inch (12.7 mm) for solid area fill, logos, or images. With a roll-feed paper input, no change in print quality should be apparent up to 2 mm of the perforation.

Operator Controls

The display and operator input functions of the Infoprint 4100 are provided via a flat-panel touch-screen console. A keyboard and mouse are also provided to assist the operator with input functions. The flat-panel touch-screen, keyboard, and mouse are the primary interface utilized by both operator and customer engineer. The graphic user interface (GUI) provides simple buttons and functions for all capabilities. Special emphasis has been placed on reducing the number of menus and number of clicks that an operator must go through in order to perform a task. assembly.

FICON Attach. - Short Wave PCI-X 6476
Gigabit Ethernet TX (Copper) - PCI-X 6482
?

At any time, only one Ethernet adapter can be enabled.

Gigabit Ethernet SX (TCP/IP) (#6472)

The Gigabit Ethernet SX attachment feature is a TCP/IP attachment that offers high-speed data transfers using multimode optical fiber.

This feature is also known as 1000Base-SX Ethernet.

The Gigabit Ethernet SX Attachment is a 1000Base-SX PCI adaptor that utilizes short-wave light and a duplex SC connector to connect to multimode optical fiber. When used with a 50/125 multimode fiber, the maximum cable segment distance is 275 meters (with 200 MHz-km cable). When used with 50/125 multimode fiber, the maximum cable segment distance is 500 meters (with 400-500 MHz-km cable).

The Gigabit Ethernet SX feature can be used to connect to a print server running PSF or Infoprint Manager software. The connection to the server can be direct (point-to-point) or through standard Gigabit Ethernet SX LAN connections. The printer attachment receives data in the form of IPDS (Intelligent Printer Data Stream described in IBM Reference Publication S544-3417).

This attachment complies with the IEEE 802.3z standard which is part of the IEEE 802.3 (2000) standard.

This attachment supports 1000 Mb multimode fiber links to an optical Ethernet network.

Gigabit Ethernet TX (TCP/IP) (#6482)

The Gigabit Ethernet TX feature is a TCP/IP attachment that offers high speed data transfers using standard Category 5 UTP copper cabling.

This feature is also known as 10/100/1000 Base-T Ethernet or 1000Base-T Ethernet.

The Gigabit Ethernet TX feature can be used to connect to a print server running PSF or Infoprint Manager software. The connection to the server can be direct (point-to-point) or through standard Gigabit Ethernet TX (copper) LAN connections. The printer attachment receives data in the form of IPDS (Intelligent Printer Data Stream described in IBM Reference Publication S544-3417).

The attachment complies with the IEEE 802.3ab standard which is part of the 802.3 (2000) standard.

The Gigabit Ethernet TX attachment is a 10/100/1000Base-T PCI adaptor that utilizes an RJ-45 connector to connect to a customer-supplied Category 5 Ethernet cable. When used with standard Category 5 Ethernet cabling, the maximum cable segment distance is 100 meters.

This attachment supports 10 Mb, 100 Mb, and 1000 Mb links to an Ethernet network.

The IEEE 802.3 (2000) standard specifies that Category 5 Ethernet facility wiring may be used with 1000Base-T if it meets certain new transmission parameter requirements.

FICON (#6475, 6476)

FICON channel attachment is supported in the PSF for z/OS printing environments. The Infoprint 4100 may be attached natively to IBM FICON Channels (9672-G5, 9672-G6, 900Z).

Attachment is also supported via the 2032 Director and the 2042 Director, as well as to the remote end of an IBM 2029 Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexor.

ESCON Channel

The ESCON channel is supported in PSF for z/OS and OS/390 printing environments.

The Infoprint 4100 may be attached natively to IBM ESCON channels (3090-J, 9021, 9121, 9221, 9672, 2003).

Attachment Cable features

Each installation requires custom planning for adapter cabling. Often the facility infrastructure dictates the type of cable that will be used, the connectors that are available, and the length of cable that is required. Also, the network adapter feature being ordered will support a particular cable type and connector.

Jumper cables and Converter kits are available as cable features. The jumper cables have a standard connector on each end. The converter kits are short cables with a connector on one end and a receptacle on the other end.

A standard connector will plug into a receptacle of the same type, (example: LC will plug into LC(R). One or more of the chargeable cable features may be ordered with the printer. There is a non-chargeable feature code that may be selected when no cable will be ordered with the adapter (customer supplied cable).

In some cases the cable features will not meet the requirements of the installation and cables will have to be provided using an alternate method.

See the "Planning and Configuration Guide for Infoprint 4100 Models with the Infoprint POWER Controller Operator Console" for detailed information regarding required cables.?

Software Requirements

The Infoprint 4100 is supported in the following operating system environments:

  • z/OS and OS/390 operating environment:
    • PSF 3.3.0 for z/OS(via PTF UW94037) and PSF 3.4.0 for z/OS and later versions or releases

Choosing the right supplies is very important. For optimum print quality and reliable performance, the use of IBM supplies is recommended. Supplies are purchase-only items. The customer is responsible for ordering and maintaining an adequate stock of supplies. Many authorized supplies dealers offer supply agreements, which often offer customers price discounts, price protection, established shipping schedules, and reduced administrative expenses.

It is recommended that customers maintain a one-to two-month stock of supplies on hand.

Materials Safety Data Sheets (MSDS, OSHA Form 20) for the Infoprint 4100 supplies with the IBM logo are available in the U.S. by calling 800-IBM-4333 (426-4333). You will need to provide the seven-digit part number or the machine type and model number and supply type, for example, Infoprint 4100-HS3. Outside the U.S., contact your local supplies dealer.

Toner Yield:

When printing at a coverage of 8 square inches per foot, at contrast setting 4, the toner yield = 40K feet per 2.72 kg (6.0 lb.) cartridge for black Toner Part Number 69G7377.

Developer Mix Yield:

The developer mix yield = 1.6M developer feet per 4.0 kg (8.8 lb.) bottle for black Developer Mix Part Number 69G7370.(1)

Actual developer yield will vary with toner coverage, machine settings, paper type and size, and environmental conditions. Applications with extensive bar codes or solid area fill can expect to achieve yields lower than that achieved with the average text page.

Note: (1) The approximate average yields are not a warranty or guarantee of minimum life, and are provided to assist in initial supplies planning. Actual usage should be used to establish the supply's life in your applications.
