This chapter begins by listing and describing the different ways you can configure your
printer to meet your special printing needs.
The next section describes how to use the printer control panel to access the configuration menu and how to make configuration changes.
The rest of the chapter provides basic printer configuration information about some of
the configuration menu options. The QMS CrownNet Interface System Setup Guide
(on the QMS Software Utilities CD-ROM) contains the CrownNet submenu configuration information for the Ethernet interface. In both guides, menu features are grouped
according to task. Each feature is introduced, then a table describes the feature’s
location in the configuration menu, the available choices for that feature, and the factory default (the value set at the factory).
You have six ways to configure your printer to meet your printing needs:
Through the printer driver (accessible through the application)
Through the printer control panel
Through the CrownAdmin network utility
Through the CrownView printer webpage
Through Document Option Commands
Through Remote Console in a telnet session
Using your application is the best way to control your printer since most printing is
done on a per-job basis. This helps prevent confusion in network environments and
saves you from making changes at the printer control panel.
Applications use printer drivers to send appropriate commands to the printer for
requested tasks. If your application doesn’t have a QMS 3260/4032 Print System
driver, you can install the driver from the QMS Software Utilities CD-ROM or download
EDNord - Istedgade 37A - 9000 Aalborg - telefon 96333500
"
%#
the latest driver from our website. You may be able to use other drivers to control the
printer but comparable drivers may not allow you to access all of your printer's
features, such as 1200 dpi printing, duplexing, or collating.
Your printer is configured at the factory for most typical printing environments, so most
users don’t have to use the control panel often. However, if you do need to change a
printer setting for all print jobs (not just on a per-job basis), you can do so through the
control panel. If you’re working in a shared printing environment, your system administrator should be the only person to make changes through the printer’s control panel.
»
Note: The menu navigation button functions appear on the display panel only when
the printer is off line.
Many of the configuration choices that can be made at the control panel can also be
made through CrownAdmin network utilities. CrownAdmin accesses the printer
through your network to give you the ability to make configuration changes. The
graphical user interface contains buttons that give you direct access to printer features. You can access the printer web page (CrownView) through CrownAdmin or run
a Remote Console session. To avoid confusion in a shared printing environment, only
the system administrator should make configuration changes. See the QMS
CrownAdmin on-line help for information on using Remote Console.
»
Note: If a remote console has the printer off line, pressing the Online button will not
take effect until the console puts the printer back on line.
QMS CrownView is a printer-based application using the World Wide Web portion of
the Internet as a framework for the QMS 3260/4032 Print System. This feature gives
you access to printer configuration options normally available through the control
panel or CrownAdmin. You can use CrownView to monitor printer consumables, configure the printer to send you email, and access printer status information.

#$
QMS Document Option Commands (DOCs) can enable job-specific features your
application or page description language can’t access. See your QMS Crown Document Option Commands manual (in Acrobat PDF format on the QMS Software Utilities CD-ROM) for information on DOC. See appendix C, “Document Option
Commands,” of this manual for a list of the supported DOCs.
%"
All the configuration settings available from the control panel are available through
your printer’s Remote Console. You can access Remote Console directly through a
telnet session with your printer. See the QMS CrownNet Interface System Setup
Guide (on the QMS Software Utilities CD-ROM) for information.
The printer’s configuration menu allows you to change the default printer configuration
settings. Any changes made to the configuration will reside as new default settings
and affect all subsequent print jobs.
The options in the configuration menu are organized under three main menus:
Operator Control Menu
Use this menu to select document processing options such as copy count, choosing input and output paper bins, chaining input bins, and duplexing (if a duplexing
unit is installed). Document processing options are usually specified within individual jobs since each job has its own requirements. However, if there’s no way of
specifying these options within an application, use the control panel to change
options, send the job, and then change the defaults back.
»
Note: Defining document processing options for a particular job through the
control panel is not recommended in a shared environment. When many systems
are using the same printer, there’s no way of making sure that no other jobs are
sent to the printer while the defaults are changed. The Operator Control menu
may be password-protected with an optional security key if the system
administrator does not want users changing defaults.
EDNord - Istedgade 37A - 9000 Aalborg - telefon 96333500
%#
Administration Menu
Use this menu to maintain printer-host communication information, and for selecting and configuring printer emulations, configuring special pages, printing engine
calibration, and configuring hard disks (if installed).
Note: For information on printer-host communication using the Ethernet interface
or any of the Administration/Communications/CrownNet options, see chapter 2,
“Printer Configuration,” in the QMS CrownNet System Administrator’s Guide on
the QMS Software Utilities CD-ROM. The Administration menu may be password
protected with an optional security key if the system administrator does not want
users changing defaults.

Installation Menu
Use this menu to establish passwords for the Operator Control and Administration
menus. This menu displays only when an optional security key is installed.

A character is any letter, digit, or symbol. A field is a group of characters that have
meaning. Use the printer control panel to enter character information in the message
window during printer configuration. The maximum length of the message window is
16 characters.
Entering character information through the control panel is similar to setting the time
and date on a digital watch. You enter one character at a time. The current input character flashes. Use the following buttons to change the current input character:

it’s invalid, you’re returned to the input field. Press the Menu button to cancel any
changes to the character information.
If the current character information is longer than the value that you need to enter,
replace each extra character with a space. The printer interprets a space at the end of
character information as a blank.

On Any—Switch to the next inputbin with similar size of paper when the
default inputbin is empty.

*+#$
Default
On
Notes
Use the Operator Control/Inputbin menu to set the default inputbin. Make
sure that the three inputbins use the same size paper.
When chaining “on any” and duplexing, the printer will chain to a similar
size paper (for example, letter to A4) but not to the large paper sizes—
11"x17" and A3. This is because these large sizes are fed through the
printer in a different printing order than the smaller sizes. When these
restrictions occur on chaining on any, the printer will prompt you to add
the default paper size to any tray. The custom tray chaining
“on any” for large-format paper will not occur unless there is another
custom tray with the same paper size or a standard tray with A3 or
11"x17" paper.

Purpose
Erases the Accounting files and recreates them using the current file size.
Choices
Yes, No
Default
No
Notes
If this operation is selected when accounting is disabled, the files are
removed but not recreated, thus saving disk space.
This operation is also available as the resetaccount command for the
admin user at a remote console. (See the Remote Console User’s Guide
for more information.)
When job files are more than 80% full but less than 100% full, the
following message displays on the control panel and remote console:
xxxxxxxx FILE xxx% FULL
(xxx% is the percentage full, reported as 80%, 85%, 90%, or 95%.) This
is an appropriate time to transfer them to your host computer using ftp if it
is available to you. Then use the option to reset the accounting files to
empty after they have been transferred to the host.
When the file is 100% full, the
xxx FILE IS FULL
message displays.
When accounting is enabled and the job accounting files are 100% full,
no further print jobs are accepted by the printer until Resetaccounting is
selected or until accounting is disabled. If you disable accounting at this
time, no job information is stored. You can retrieve your accounting files
while they are full and then do the Resetaccounting operation. However,
to avoid delaying jobs being sent to the printer, it is advisable to perform
the retrieve/reset operations before the job accounting files fill up.

Operator Control/Accounting/File Segment
Purpose
Allows you to specify whether accounting information is stored in the
printer in a single file or in multiple files.
Choices
Single, Multiple
Default
Multiple
Notes
Job accounting information may be stored in a single file and can be
retrieved via FTP on your host or by using Crown Print Auditor (CPA) on
the QMS Software Utilities CD-ROM. Otherwise, the selected job
accounting file should be spread into multiple files.
If a single file is used, its size equals the Disk Space value described
earlier in this section. The file name will be ACC1.JOB.
If multiple files are selected, their combined size equals the File Size
value described earlier in this section. Each file will be 1 MB, except the
last file, which includes the remaining dedicated space. That is, if you
dedicate 10 MB to accounting and select multiple files, the printer creates
10 files of 1 MB each. If you dedicate 5.5 MB to accounting, the printer
creates 5 files of 1 MB each and one of 500 KB. The job filenames are
ACC1.JOB, ACC2.JOB, and so on.

Notes
A zero for spool space does not turn an interface off. If an interface is not
to be used, disable it (Administration/Communications/Resident NIC/
CrownNet/Interface/Protocol menu) so memory assigned to it will be
assigned to the other protocols.
The sum of Min K Spool settings for all of the installed communications
interfaces must be less than or equal to the setting in the Administration/
Communications/K Mem for Spool menu. If Min K Spool is set to zero, the
system automatically calculates a new value for it (½ of that available in K
Mem for Spool) each time the printer is turned on.
If the sum of the Min K Spool settings for all installed interfaces is less
than the setting of K Mem for Spool, the remaining space is considered
float memory, memory that can be allocated as necessary. When an
interface has used its default allotment, it may use any available float
memory to spool additional data. The float memory is allocated on a
first-come, first-served basis. No interface is guaranteed access to any
spool buffer beyond its Min K Spool value.

mapping to the physical paper. This mapping is a scaling factor (or a size
ratio) between the chosen paper size and the physical paper size in the
default inputbin. For example if A3 is selected (size 11.69'' x 16.54'') for
paper size and the physical paper size in the default inputbin is A4 (8.27''

Notes
The available range of plotter units for a particular paper size is only
partially determined by setting the Expand Mode to On. When the printer/
plotter senses the paper size it automatically sets the hard clip limit to
15mm on three sides and 39 mm on the fourth. If Expand Mode is On,
then the hard clip limits are set to 5mm on three sides and 29 mm on the
fourth side. This is what allows you to define a larger imageable area.
The HP-GL emulation senses the paper type if the paper type is set to
Scale to Paper. It is also possible to have the HP-GL emulation use a
particular paper size by setting Original Paper Type through the control
panel or by using a Document Option Command.

Disk swapping gives your printer virtual memory capability for all memory clients
through the creation of a “swap file” on the printer’s hard disk. The printer uses this file
as an extension of its memory. As the physical RAM fills, the printer can swap the contents to the hard disk file to allow more space. This file swapping between disk and
RAM occurs at various times throughout the printing process and is completely transparent.

Notes
If no hard disk is installed, the disk cache is set to the minimum value
(00000. The printer then reallocates the released memory to other clients
that need additional memory.
The amount of memory needed for this memory client depends on the size
and number of hard disks, the number of subdirectories on each disk, and
the amount of memory dedicated to caching.
If sufficient memory is available to the disk cache, all disks are accessible. If
insufficient memory is available to the disk cache, some disks may be
accessible while others may not be.
The recommended amount of memory for the disk cache client is
120 KB minimum
0.5 KB per MB of disk storage total for all disks
For example, the recommended amount of memory for the disk cache for a
single 120 MB hard disk is 180 KB, and for two 120 MB hard disks it is 240
KB. These are recommended values. The printer will still operate with a
smaller cache, but decreased performance may result.
If you change the K Mem Disk Cache value, the printer automatically restarts

Frame buffer memory should always be the first memory client configured in the
printer. After this, all other clients can be configured, depending on your printing
needs. Anytime the frame buffer is changed, all of the other clients are resized to their
default values. The frame buffer can be configured manually, through the Quick Config
menu, or by resetting the printer defaults. In all cases, be sure to keep a copy of the
advanced status page as a record of memory client settings. See chapter 3, “Additional Technical Information,” for more information on memory and the frame buffer client.
Menu
Administration/Memory/Manual Config/K Mem Framebuff
Purpose
Sets the number of kilobytes dedicated to the frame buffer, which holds
rasterized or bitmapped images of page faces which are ready to be sent
to the print engine.
Status Page
Equivalent
Frame Buffer
Choices
0-99999
Notes
A frame holds the contents of each single page image. For example, a
600 dpi page printed on letter size paper would consume frame buffer
memory space as follows: (600dpi x 600dpi x 8.5'' x 11'')/8 = 4,207,500
bytes or 4.1 MB. The actual value is lower because you’re dealing with
imageable area.
If the printer memory is upgraded, the printer automatically reconfigures
Frame Buffer after detecting the mernory upgrade.

MB Printer Memory shows the size of the physical RAM installed in the printer. If a
hard disk is installed and disk swapping is enabled (Administration/Memory/Manual
Config/Enable Disk Swap), this field also adds the size of available virtual memory to
the physical RAM installed in the printer.

Total Memory
Choices
000-999
Default
Depends on the amount of memory installed.
Notes
This memory client is not configurable.
The size of this client's memory limits the number of jobs that may be
queued simultaneously. When this client's memory is exhausted, the
printer slows down, and the hosts are forced to wait.
Since the printer uses a portion of the hard disk for memory swapping,
the amount of memory displayed is larger than the actual amount of
memory installed in the printer.

This option allows you to adjust the horizontal and vertical placement of printed
images.
To check image alignment, print a standard status page (Print Status button). When
the printer is placing images properly, the alignment angle bar in the lower-left corner
of the status page is 0.5"/12.7 mm from the left and bottom edges of the page. If the
angle bar is off, use the Administration/Engine/Image Alignment option to align the
image horizontally and vertically in pixel increments (1/300" or 0.08 mm).

This chapter provides additional technical information on accounting, memory

conversion.
Crown accounting is a tool to help you keep track of printer resources. The printer collects information about each print job as it’s printed. When each job completes, the
printer stores an entry for the job in the job accounting file. With Crown accounting you
can monitor the following:
»
Paper use per user
Time consumed serving each user’s jobs
Connectivity options
Frequency of jams
Times of peak use
Number, complexity, and average size of jobs per user
Commonly used features, such as duplexing or finishing
Note: A hard disk (internal or external) must be installed in the printer before you can
use Crown accounting. A network connection is optional. However, if you’re
connected to a network via TCP/IP, you have the choice of using printer-based Crown
accounting or the standard host-based TCP/IP accounting through your UNIX host
software. See the TCP/IP Protocol Option User’s Guide for more information on TCP/
IP accounting.
▲ Caution: Do not turn the printer off while the disk is being accessed. Doing so may
cause inconsistencies in the information stored.

The following accounting files are stored in ASCII format in the SYS:/ADMIN directory
on the printer’s hard disk.
Job Accounting File (ACCx.JOB)
This is the main accounting file. When each job completes, the printer stores an
entry for the job in this file. The job accounting file may be a single file or multiple
files, with x as the file number when multiple files are used. Information in this file
is kept intact after the printer is turned off and back on again.
Paper Accounting File (ACC.PAP)
This file contains descriptions of the paper types supported on the QMS 3260/
4032 Print System.
Status Accounting File (ACC.STA)
This file stores configuration information about accounting.
Dictionary File (ACC.DIC)
This file contains documentation about accounting and a description of the fields
used in the other accounting files.
▲ Caution: All the accounting files are stored in ASCII format to make it simpler to use
the information in different environments after it is retrieved from the printer’s hard
disk.

%
Accounting files are recorded in ASCII format in a series of tagged fields. New fields
can be added without losing backward compatibility, because each field is tagged. A
version field is included in the ACC.STA file to identify the supported fields as the system evolves.
»
Note: Field 45 in the Job Accounting File example on page 3-7 illustrates that new
fields can be added to the series but used where logical, in this case between fields 6
and 7. Field 45, which provides information about the interface used, was added in
response to a customer request.

The following conventions are the same for job, paper, and status files:
Tag Identifiers
These three-digit numbers are used to identify fields. The three-digit number is
used instead of a name to minimize use of disk space. The Dictionary file
(ACC.DIC) provides the field names associated with each tag identifier.
String information
String information for record field values is stored inside braces (for example, {this
is a string}). This allows spaces within strings and stores only the necessary characters of a string value. String fields for which no value is specified are stored as
{}, instead of using blanks or the maximum field size.
New records
New records are separated by a <CR> character to increase readability.
Separators
A typical record in any of the accounting files is a sequence of pairs of tag identifiers and field values separated by commas. The tag identifier and field value are
separated by a colon.

The following is an example of the format of an accounting file record:
1:
3,
2:{this is a string},
<CR>
In this example, the record has fields identified by tags 1 and 2. Since these values
don't use 3 digits for the tag identifier, spaces are stored instead, to provide consistency and simplicity while using only a small amount of extra space. In this example,
the value for the field tagged 1 is the integer 3 and the value for the field tagged 2 is a
string. The <CR> represents the carriage return character.

An interface is the point at which two elements connect so they can work together. A
printer-host interface is the way a printer connects to and works with a host (a
microcomputer, workstation, minicomputer, mainframe computer, or network), and it
involves both hardware and software. The way your printer interfaces with a host
depends on many things, including computer type, computer ports available, interface
cabling, application software, printer emulations, and printer drivers.
"##&
$,"&$-
Simultaneous Interface Operation (SIO), a standard feature of QMS Crown
architecture, enables your QMS printer to communicate simultaneously with hosts
through the parallel, serial, Ethernet, and optional interface ports. In other words, SIO
allows you to have more than one host communicating with the printer at one time.
+"
Emulation Sensing Processor (ESP) technology is another standard feature of QMS
Crown architecture. ESP technology, which works with most popular commercially
available applications, uses a form of artificial intelligence to analyze incoming file
data and select the appropriate printer emulation (for example, PostScript emulation,
HP-GL emulation, HP-PCL emulation, or another optional emulation) from those
installed on the printer.
The print job is processed without your having to change printer switch settings or
send software commands to accommodate different printer emulations.
When your printer is in ESP mode, you can easily print files prepared for a PostScript
printer, an HP LaserJet, or an HP-GL plotter. The file prints correctly as long as it contains the traditional PostScript, PCL, or HP-GL commands for such items as page formats and job parameters (number of copies, page margins, fonts).
The QMS 3260/4032 Print System prints almost any file sent in a language ESP technology understands, whether you have one, two, or more hosts, and whether you are
communicating through a parallel, Ethernet, serial, or other optional interface. Most
users never have to change from ESP mode to another mode.
EDNord - Istedgade 37A - 9000 Aalborg - telefon 96333500
#
!
You can either allow your printer to operate in its default ESP mode or configure its
ports to accept jobs in only a particular emulation mode (for example, PostScript emulation only, HP PCL only, or HP-GL emulation only). The default printer communication
settings can be changed through the Configuration menu, which you access through
the control panel—in the Administration/Communications menu, you can choose a
default emulation for the parallel and serial interfaces, and in the Administration/Emulations menu, you can configure the printer defaults for each emulation mode. (The
optional LocalTalk interface uses only PostScript.)
Advanced users can also use PostScript operators to reconfigure printer ports. Generally, it is best to keep your printer in ESP mode. Since ESP mode is the factory default,
all you have to do to use it initially is connect your host to the printer and then send a
file.
If you do want to reconfigure the interface ports for specific emulations (or if you need
to return the printer to ESP mode), use the printer’s control panel (the Administration/
Communications menu). Configuring the printer through the control panel is described
in chapter 2, “Printer Configuration,” of this manual.
Memory allows your printer to store and retrieve information that’s required when performing many of its tasks. The memory requirements of each printer are dictated by
the applications to be run. Each printer comes standard with a certain amount of
memory, but you can add more memory as necessary.
The memory is divided among users (or “clients”), each of which are allocated a specific amount (or “block”) of memory. Each memory client is dedicated to a specific purpose. Your QMS 3260/4032 Print System allows you to distribute its memory among
the various memory clients where it can best serve your specific printing needs. The
following sections provide information on memory management so you can get the
most from your printer.
Generally, there are two main reasons for wanting to reconfigure your printer’s
memory:
To achieve maximum performance
#$!"#$#
EDNord - Istedgade 37A - 9000 Aalborg - telefon 96333500
&
To enable additional features
The ability to configure your printer’s memory doesn’t necessarily mean that you must
change your current configuration. If you’re presently using all the features you need
and the printer is performing efficiently, you shouldn’t feel compelled to reconfigure
your printer’s memory. Just remember that if your printing needs change, not only do
you have the ability to increase the amount of printer memory, but you also can redistribute it to best meet your printing requirements.
!"!!
Managing the memory on your printer is much the same as managing your personal
income. In money management, you have a certain amount of income and many
ways of spending that income. You decide where that money goes according to what’s
important to you. There’s no single correct way to manage money, but there is one
best way for you according to your financial obligations. Just as long as your method
works for you.
The same is true for managing the memory on your printer. There’s no single correct
way for everyone to allocate available printer memory. There is, however, a best way
to configure your printer's memory for maximum efficiency in your specific printing
environment. For example, if you use a large number of PostScript fonts of various
point sizes, you may want to increase the amount of memory allocated to the area
specified for PostScript fonts. Or you may want to increase memory to the area that
minimizes slowdowns when collating large print jobs.
Memory configuration affects these things as well as the number of jobs that can be
accepted by the printer, the number of options available simultaneously, the number of
downloadable fonts and emulations that can be stored, and overall printer
performance.
!
Before you can configure your printer’s memory efficiently, you must first understand
the different types of memory and how they work together. Your QMS 3260/4032 Print
System documentation uses the following memory terms:
!
Memory allows your printer to store and retrieve information. It’s the space within your
printer where information is stored while being processed.
EDNord - Istedgade 37A - 9000 Aalborg - telefon 96333500
! A memory client is a user of a block of memory dedicated to a specific function. Each
memory client controls certain features. When insufficient memory is allocated to a
specific client, the features it controls may not be accessible.
!
Some printers designate one or two memory clients to receive all the excess, or
unassigned memory. On your QMS 3260/4032 Print System excess memory is
distributed among all the memory clients.
Storage is a device in (or on) which information can be kept. On QMS printers, there
are three main types of storage—ROM, RAM, and hard disks. ROM stores read-only
data, RAM represents temporary storage, and hard disks hold information on a more
permanent basis (see the following definitions).
-*!9-
* !:
This type of memory contains data and/or machine-executable instructions that can
be read but not modified. This information is not lost when the printer’s power is
turned off.
-+!9-
+!:
RAM is the memory your printer uses to perform each task. It can be written to and
read from. Once a task is complete, the memory is free again to be used for another
file. This memory is volatile, so if your printer loses power while a file is being sent,
you must resend the file. The number and type of features you can run on your printer
simultaneously depend on the amount of RAM you have and how that RAM is distributed. Your QMS 3260/4032 comes with either 16 or 32 MB of RAM, and it is upgradable to 384 MB by adding Single In-line Memory Modules (SIMMs).
4
,
Hard disks are memory devices that are termed secondary storage (with respect to
RAM which is termed primary storage). Hard disks are used as holding areas for data
to be loaded into RAM and are also used as overflow areas for data too large to fit into
available RAM. Any data undergoing a process by a microprocessor must reside in
RAM. Any data waiting to be processed can reside on a hard disk, but must be transferred to RAM when required.
#$!"#$#
EDNord - Istedgade 37A - 9000 Aalborg - telefon 96333500
'
When any available RAM cannot contain a large amount of data, some of that data
can be placed on the hard disk. In this case, the memory used on a hard disk is
referred to as “virtual memory.”
Examples of items placed on the hard disk in the QMS 3260/4032 are downloaded
fonts, downloaded emulations, background print files, spooled print jobs, and operating systems.
-+!,
Also called a “virtual disk,” the RAM disk is an area of RAM that is used to simulate an
additional hard disk. Data on a RAM disk can be written and read more quickly than
on a hard disk, but a RAM disk loses any information stored on it when the printer's
power is turned off. The spooling buffer is a RAM disk client if a hard disk is not
available.
"9
#"0
:
The printer’s optional SCSI port allows you to connect up to three optional SCSI hard
disks or the optional CrownCopy scanner and up to two optional SCSI hard disks, providing storage for fonts, emulations, and other files. Hard disks are also used to
increase the amount of collation that can be accepted and provide a secondary storage area for spooled data, while providing virtual memory capabilities.
",9"
,2 :
This applies to the internal hard disk. “Integrated” refers to the fact that all of the controller electronics are on the drive itself, so no separate adapter card or expansion slot
is required.
; !
This type of memory is cleared when the printer is turned off. For example, most RAM
is volatile.
2 !
This type of memory is not lost when the printer loses power.
;-+!9; -+!:
This protected form of RAM is used to store information such as your printer’s configuration menu. Configuration options you have chosen, such as emulations, memory
(
EDNord - Istedgade 37A - 9000 Aalborg - telefon 96333500
settings, and input bins, are saved to this non-volatile RAM. This information is not lost
when you turn off your printer.
!
Physical memory refers to the amount of RAM installed in the printer.
;#
!
Virtual memory extends the effective size of the printer’s RAM by using a disk file or
swap file to simulate additional memory space. It enables the hard disk to accept data
swapped from RAM to free temporarily the RAM for other tasks.
/ -*!
Quick loading, reprogrammable memory that holds information even when the printer
is turned off is known as Flash ROM. Your QMS 3260/4032 Print System has Flash
ROM available to hold system code. The chief advantage of Flash ROM is that system
code upgrades can be loaded from your computer without the necessity of swapping
out expensive EPROMS or having to place a service call.
Spooling is temporary storage to hold print jobs until the printer is available to process
them.
+#4#+
The first step in allocating your printer’s memory is to define your printing needs. Each
of your printer’s features requires a minimum amount of memory. If you use a feature,
you must allocate enough memory to the client which controls it. On the other hand, if
there are features you don’t use, you can take the memory in the clients that control
the unused features and assign it to other clients that need additional memory.

Memory clients are users of memory that are dedicated to a specific purpose. Each of
the memory clients is located in the Administration/Memory menu. When you allocate
memory to a specific client through the control panel, it’s allocated in kilobytes (KB).
Each time you make changes in the Administration/Memory menu, print out a status
page to confirm the memory reallocation.
»
Note: The value for each memory client must be divisible by 4 KB. Therefore, if a
value is entered that is not evenly divisible by 4 KB, it’s automatically converted to the
next lower value that’s divisible by 4 KB. For example, if you enter 102 KB, the actual
value is lowered to 100 KB, assuming there is enough memory available to allocate to
this client. See the “Memory” section of chapter 2, “Printer Configuration,” for each
memory client’s minimum and default settings.
Memory clients in the QMS 3260/4032 are automatically allocated when the printer is
installed or when you upgrade the printer’s memory. There are other occasions when
the printer’s memory is automatically reallocated. These occur:
When new system software is installed.
When Quick Config is selected in the menu.
When Disk Swap is enabled or disabled.
When Frame Buffer is manually adjusted.
When restoring printer defaults.
Remember, if you perform any of these functions the memory clients will be set to
default values. The default values depend on the amount of physical memory installed
in your printer and if you have a hard disk. The default allocation adjusts the Frame
Buffer memory client first. It is set to the minimum values of physical memory needed
for your print jobs, that is, paper size and resolution. The other memory clients are allocated memory from what is left over in physical memory.
/
#00
The Frame Buffer memory client holds rasterized or bitmapped images of page faces
which are ready to be sent to the print engine. A frame holds the contents of each
single page image. For example, a 600 dpi monochrome page printed on letter-size
media would consume Frame Buffer memory space as follows: (600 dpi x 600 dpi x
8.5 in x 11 in) /8 = 4,207,500 bytes or 4.1 MB.
#$!"#$#
EDNord - Istedgade 37A - 9000 Aalborg - telefon 96333500
Because the Frame Buffer memory is so critical to the actual printing of a page, its
allocation takes precedence over that of other memory clients. The number of frames
needed to print at engine speed is engine specific and depends on the size media and
resolution. For example, printing at 600x600 dpi requires four times the amount of
memory in the frame buffer than printing at 300x300 dpi.
This table shows the minimum required memory for the Frame Buffer for various page
sizes simplex or duplex. These values allow the printer to print at its rated speed. The
minimum required memory for Frame Buffer will print correctly but may not print at the
rated engine speed.

If you are uncertain about how to configure your printer’s memory, use only the
Administration/Memory/QuickConfig menu. This menu appears if your printer does not
have a disk drive attached or if the disk swap option is disabled. Use this menu as a
starting point before trying manually to configure your printer’s memory. It provides a
simple method of defining how much memory should go to each of the clients for the
EDNord - Istedgade 37A - 9000 Aalborg - telefon 96333500
most complicated printing conditions in your environment. Menu options allow you to
specify the largest media size at the resolution you plan to use. Memory is then automatically allocated to the clients.

Also known as K Mem Display, this client stores compressed representations, or
blocks, of the pages to be printed. It takes approximately one compressed block for a
normal 8.5" x 11" (215.9 mm x 279.4 mm) text page, four compressed blocks for an
8.5" x 11" (215.9 mm x 279.4 mm) page that includes some graphics, and as many as
500 compressed blocks for an extremely complex page.
Many pages of compressed blocks belonging to multiple print jobs can be stored at
the same time in the display list. If enough memory is allocated to this memory client,
a page can always be ready to print as soon as another page has been imaged to the
print engine.
The amount of memory required for each compressed block is printer specific. The
QMS 3260/4032 takes approximately 64 KB of memory from the display list for each
compressed block. However, if a page includes raster image data (for example,
bitmap data), each compressed block will require much more memory.
Increasing the amount of memory in this client may improve printing throughput and
minimize slowdowns due to collating or printing complex pages. If your printer has a
hard disk and the disk swap option is enabled, the memory added to this client is
taken from virtual memory. If your printer does not have a hard drive then the memory
added to this client is taken from the amount of physical memory in your printer. It may
be necessary to reduce memory added to another client before adding memory to the
Display List. Check that the Frame Buffer still has the minimum amount of memory
needed for your printing needs before reallocating this memory.
/
Also known as K Mem PS Fonts and Font Cache, this memory client stores bitmapped representations of previously scaled PostScript fonts. This process reduces
the number of times a font must be converted from outline form to bitmap form. Printing pages that have characters already stored in the font cache is immensely faster
than printing characters not yet in the font cache.
#$!"#$#
EDNord - Istedgade 37A - 9000 Aalborg - telefon 96333500
As the font cache memory fills, the printer makes room for new bitmapped characters
by erasing those that have been in the cache longest without being used. By increasing the memory allocated to this client, the printer can store more characters and
spend less time erasing and replacing characters in the cache. You should be careful
when increasing the memory allocated to this client because the printer may spend
more time searching the cache than it would scaling the character. This client has a
limit to the maximum point size it will store.
Normally, you don’t need to change this memory allocated to this client unless you use
a large number of fonts at various point sizes. If you do, you may allocate additional
memory to this client to improve printer performance.
There’s no specific formula to use in figuring the amount of memory required by the
font cache, but after a certain point, large font caches cause the printer to take longer
to print than smaller font caches because of the search time through the cache. The
recommended font cache size is in the following ranges:
128-256 KB for 300x300 dpi printing
256-512 KB for 600x600 dpi printing
384-512 KB for 1200x600 dpi and 1200x1200 dpi printing
You should experiment to see what font cache size works best for you.

Also known as K Mem PSHeap, Heap, PostScript VM, and Virtual Memory, this client
holds downloaded fonts, PostScript operators, and forms.
Inefficiently coded PostScript jobs can consume an extremely large amount of virtual
memory or leave objects in the PostScript heap after the print jobs are completed,
leading to virtual memory errors. If enough memory is not allocated to the PS heap,
the job cannot print.
Increasing the memory allocated to this client allows more complex jobs to print and
increases the number of fonts that can be downloaded to virtual memory. However,
this client should be increased only if you receive a virtual memory error when
attempting to print a job or download a font, and even then it should be increased only
in small increments until the error message goes away. Excess memory in the PS
heap is not used.
EDNord - Istedgade 37A - 9000 Aalborg - telefon 96333500
# Also known as K Mem Emulation, this client is used to store any optional or loadable
emulations, such as LN03 Plus or QUIC II. Increasing this client’s memory allows you
to load more than one optional emulation so that it doesn’t have to be reloaded every
time the print job is sent.
If an emulation is loaded to process a print job and there is not enough memory in the
emulation client, another emulation already loaded may be unloaded automatically to
obtain enough memory. If you notice a delay in printing between jobs that have different nonresident emulations, it’s possible that the emulations are having to reload each
time they’re run. Adding memory to the emulation client may eliminate the unloading
and reloading of these emulations and, consequently, increase throughput. QMS recommends that you should add at least 1 MB of physical RAM to your printer and
increase this memory client by 1 MB. If your printer has an optional hard disk and the
disk swapping option is turned on then you can increase the emulation memory client
using this memory.
»
Note: You should add at least 1 MB to the emulation memory client for each loadable
emulation that your printer uses. Failure to add memory to this client may prevent the
printer from loading and using the emulation. You should check the documentation
accompanying your loadable emulation for information on additional resource
requirements.
Also increase the emulation client if you’re printing complex non-PostScript jobs that
may require more memory to process correctly.
# Also known as K Mem Emul Tmp, this client sets the amount of system memory to be
used by non-PostScript emulations for storing downloaded fonts, forms, and macros.
By dedicating a portion of memory to this client, your printer can perform “context
switching,” the ability to retain downloaded fonts and forms even after the printer
changes from one emulation to another. Context switching prevents unnecessary
repetitive downloading and traffic congestion on networks.
Normally, this memory client doesn’t need to be changed unless you plan to download
many different non-PostScript fonts.

Also known as Host Input and K Mem for Spool, this memory client stores incoming
data from all the interfaces until the emulation can process the print job. When enough
memory is allocated to this client, the host becomes free more quickly, and the number of jobs that the printer can accept simultaneously is increased. You should consider the amount of data being sent simultaneously when allocating memory to the
spool buffer. If available, a hard disk can supplement this client with additional memory needed for spooling. See the “Hard Disk Management” section later in this chapter.
»
Note: While increasing this client is beneficial in reducing network traffic, throughput is
not necessarily increased. In addition, making this client too large could actually
decrease throughput because of the overhead involved with managing a large spool.
,
This memory client stores frequently used data in system memory instead of continually storing and retrieving it from a hard disk. If a hard disk is used and a lot of disk
access is required, adding memory to the disk cache may increase the printer’s performance.
For example, if many fonts are stored on disk, faster access to these fonts is achieved
by increasing the disk cache size. Conversely, if no hard disk is used, the disk cache
will automatically be set to 0 KB until a hard disk is installed and formatted. However,
when one or more hard disks are installed and formatted, disk cache is automatically
allocated 256 KB. Also, if there is more than 8 MB of memory installed, then 28 KB will
be allocated to the Disk Cache client for any optional font SIMMs.
The disk cache is a high speed temporary buffer for data going to and from the hard
disk. It can speed the printer in two ways:
Information such as frequently referenced fonts and logos may still be in the
cache and may not have to be pulled off a hard disk each time they’re needed.
Information being written to a hard disk can be held in the cache temporarily until
a more convenient time to be written to disk.
The amount of memory needed for the disk cache client is dependent on the size of
the disk, the number of disks, the number of subdirectories on each disk, and the
amount of memory dedicated to caching. As long as the disk cache is enabled and
there is enough memory in the disk cache, all disks are accessible. If insufficient
memory is allocated to the disk cache, some disks may be seen while others are not.
EDNord - Istedgade 37A - 9000 Aalborg - telefon 96333500
The recommended amount of memory for the disk cache client for all disk drives is as
follows:
45 KB internal usage
0.5 KB per MB of disk storage total for all disks
120 KB of memory dedicated to caching
For example, the recommended amount of memory for the disk cache for a single 120
MB hard disk would be 208 KB, and for two 120 MB hard disks it would be 268 KB.

This field on the status page shows the size of the physical RAM installed in the
printer. If a hard disk is installed and disk swapping is enabled (Administration/Memory/Manual Config/Enable Disk Swap), this field also gives the size of available virtual
memory.
!
Also known as System Use, this non-configurable client is the amount of RAM used to
run the printer’s operating system. It’s never increased or decreased. The system
memory subtracted from the total amount of RAM identifies the amount of RAM available for all the other memory clients.

You can add one internal IDE hard disk (standard on QMS 3260/4032 EX model) and
up to three optional SCSI hard disks, to your QMS 3260/4032 Print System. These

emulations, and spooled data.

The ability of the printer to produce halftones allows you to add scanned images or
halftone graphics to your documents. This section will explain some of the options
available on the QMS 3260/4032 for halftone printing.
?
4
0@
Continuous tone scanned images have to be converted to dot pattern images on a
laser printer. Laser printers, like printing presses, only have the ability to print patterns
of dots controlled by turning on and off the laser. Because of the limited resolving
power of the eye halftones appear as continuous tone images. For an example hold a
newspaper photograph very close to your eyes to see the halftone dots.
Halftone characteristics can be changed by settings available on your QMS 3260/
4032 Print System. The following factors can be used to adjust the halftone characteristics of your documents.
Printer resolution
Screen frequency and screen angles (Halftone types)
There can be some side effects to changing these factors. Factors such as the number of gray levels, printer performance, and scanned image quality can be affected.
7
52 Gray levels are a progressive series of gray tones between black and white. Gray levels are produced by varying the ratio of black to white halftone dots. The number of
gray levels depends on printer resolution and screen frequency.
/A#
Screen frequency or Lines Per Inch (LPI) is the number of lines of halftone dots that
compose each inch of a halftone screen. The screen frequency determines the number of halftone dots used to represent gray levels in a given area.
The following formula shows the relationship between screen frequency, print resolution and gray levels. As the screen frequency increases, the number of gray levels
decrease. If resolution is increased, the number of gray levels will also increase.
2
gray levels = (resolution/screen frequency) + 1
#$!"#$#
EDNord - Istedgade 37A - 9000 Aalborg - telefon 96333500
)
,2 You can change screen frequency by selecting the halftone type in the QMS 3260/
4032 configuration menu, through your application, or by using the PostScript setscreen operator.
The extra gray levels available through higher resolution provide a smoother shift from
the darkest black to very light grays.
+ A screen angle is the angle at which a halftone screen prints. The default screen
angle for your QMS 3260/4032 Print System is 45° at 300x300, and 600x600. This is
the normal angle for black and white printers. Selecting advanced halftone types
menu option will vary the screen angle. You can also change the screen angle through
the PostScript setscreen operator.
4
0
Your printer provides three different options for halftones—basic, standard, and
advanced. The number of gray levels increases by increasing the halftone type setting
and the printer resolution.
»
Note: The default for this menu is Standard. The standard settings are optimized
for performance. The advanced settings are optimized for quality.
(/"
When sending print jobs through the serial and parallel protocols, some applications
and their printer drivers append an end-of-document command (EOD) to each print
job to ensure that each file prints correctly. The reason for this is that some protocols
and print queuing systems send print jobs to the printer as one continuous data
stream (one print job immediately following another).
But the problem with this system is that some applications are limited by the printer
language and are unable to produce an EOD command. This becomes even more
problematic when you’re printing to a QMS 3260/4032 Print System, where print jobs
of all supported emulations can be received simultaneously. ESP technology
examines the first part of each print job to determine its emulation. Once the emulation
is identified, the print job processes without further checking. This minimizes any
slowdown resulting from the sensing process. To help ESP technology determine the
EDNord - Istedgade 37A - 9000 Aalborg - telefon 96333500
,2 proper emulation of successive print jobs, the printer must be able to identify the end
of job for each job.
Therefore, unless a wait timeout (the amount of time the printer is waiting on data from
the host) occurs and ends each print job, or unless you add an EOD command
between each file being printed through these protocols, some print jobs may be interpreted by the printer as one job and may “run” together. See chapter 2, “Printer Configuration,” for more information on emulation timeout.
When printing multiple jobs with little or no time delay and with no EOD command
between each job, the serial and parallel protocols may be unable to detect an end of
job automatically. So the End Job Mode feature on QMS Crown printers was designed
to allow you to set the end of document for print jobs being sent through these
protocols.
%+:!
If you are printing via the serial and parallel protocols, and one of the following conditions exists, you may need to set the end job mode:
Multiple print jobs with little or no time delay and with no EOD commands have
been sent to the printer and the message window displays only one active job.
Multiple print jobs of the same printer language have been sent to the printer and
they print on the same page. (For example, you send the AUTOEXEC.BAT file
with no EOD command followed with little or no time delay by the CONFIG.SYS
file, and they both print on the same page.)
Multiple print jobs of different printer languages “run” together as if they are a single print job. (For example, you send a PCL print job followed by a PostScript print
job, and the PCL job prints and is followed by what appears to be program code
instead of your PostScript print job.)
You want to print multiple jobs with header pages.
You want to print multiple jobs where job separation is important.
When your printer is in ESP mode, printing multiple jobs through the serial and parallel
protocols and end job mode is not set, ESP technology interprets the emulation for
only the first job. The print jobs that follow are interpreted as being the same emulation as the first job. For example, if there are two print jobs, the first a PCL file with no
EOD command, and the second a PostScript file with a Ctrl-D (a PostScript end-of-file
character)—ESP technology interprets the emulation of the first job correctly. But
#$!"#$#
EDNord - Istedgade 37A - 9000 Aalborg - telefon 96333500
,2 since the first print job has no EOD command, it “runs” into the second job, and even
though the second job is PostScript, it prints in PCL.
+$
Since the serial and parallel protocols may not be able to detect an EOD automatically, due to a lack of an EOD command in some printer languages, you can insert an
EOD command at the end of your file to tell the printer where your print job ends. QMS
Crown printers recognize three end-of-document commands: QMS EOD, HP EOD,
and CTRL-D (for PostScript only).
These commands are functionally the same. They enable data stream sensing for the
EOD command, allowing your host computer to control print job separation. The QMS
EOD and the HP EOD commands perform an end of document for all of the printer
emulations supported on your printer (PostScript, HP-GL, HP PCL, and Lineprinter).
See your system administrator or applications development department to have them
identify the standard EOD command for your organization, or to have them select a
standard EOD command.
"+:!"
Your printer can be connected through the optional serial or parallel interface to a
stand-alone computer, to a print server, or to some other type of print queuing system.
This section provides a quick guide to the steps needed to set the end job mode for
each environment. The following sections provide more detailed information for each
step.

If your printer is connected to a network through a computer and the computer is
acting as a print server managing the printing of shared network files, then your
system administrator must create a job separator and associate it with a print job
queue. Different network environments have different procedures for creating the job
separator, such as initialization sequences, custom banner pages, print job headers,
or print job trailers. The print server does not necessarily send multiple print jobs to the
printer in the order that you queued them to the printer. The network job separator is
accessed with each print job, so this ensures that network job separation is enforced.
See QMS Crown Network Notes for more information on how to create a network job
separator for several commonly used networks.

In addition to Centronics parallel communication, your printer’s parallel interface provides IEEE 1284 bidirectional parallel communication, which supports five modes of
operation. The printer automatically recognizes and uses the mode dictated by the
host.
9!
Printer-host communication is done in bytes.The byte mode may be used by the host
device in a DMA (Direct Memory Access) mode for more efficient operation.
When byte transfer is complete and there is no more data to transmit, the host may do
one of the following:
Terminate and return to the compatibility mode.
Stay in the Host Busy, Data Not Available phase.
Set Host Busy Low, putting the interface into the idle phase.
If there is additional data, the host may do one of the following:
Set Host Busy Low, indicating that the host can accept additional data.
Stay in the Host Busy, Data Not Available phase.
Terminate and return to the compatibility mode.
Check your host documentation to see if the host is IEEE 1284 compatible.

Printer-host communication is done in a manner that ensures compatibility.

-!
This is an advanced version of byte mode which allows transfer of data in either direction without returning to the compatibility mode. The communication is a half-duplex
channel with either device, the host or the printer, making a request for data transfer
when there is available data. In the case of simultaneous requests for transfer, the
printer always defers to the host.

-!
Printer-host communication is done via asynchronous bidirectional eight-bit transfer. A
return to compatibility mode is not required.
!
Printer-host communication is done in nibbles (four bits; one-half byte) with the low
order nibble sent first. A transfer of two nibbles is required for each byte of information.

!& Your QMS 3260/4032 Print System supports PS Protocol, a protocol for
communication between the printer and a host computer over the parallel, optional
serial, and optional network interfaces. This binary communications protocol (BCP)
allows any 8-bit binary value (0-255) to be treated as data, while allowing a few of the
values to function as special control characters. When communicating 8-bit binary
data in binary or binary fixed mode, the printer uses the quoting mechanism of the
binary communications protocol to distinguish between the special control characters
and print job binary data.
To differentiate data from the special control characters, any data that is the same as
one of the following special control characters must be quoted.
ASCII
Keyboard
ASCII Name
ASCII Hex
Control Function
^A
SOH
0x01
Quote data character
^C
ETX
0x03
Abort job and flush to end of file
^D

DC3
0x13
XOFF in XON/XOFF flow control
T
DC4
0x14
Job status request
^\
FS
0x1C
(Reserved for future use)
A data byte is quoted by replacing it with a two-character sequence. The first character is a ^A (ASCII hex 0x01), and the second character is the character itself XORed
with the ASCII value 0x40. For example, to send the value 0x14(^T) as data, send the
two-character sequence 0x01 0x54 (^a T) instead. (ASCII “T” is the result of XORing
^T with 0x40).
This method of quoting guarantees that whenever the printer receives any of the eight
control characters, the control function is intended regardless of whether the preceding character is a ^A. Any data byte not equal to one of the eight special control characters is transmitted by sending the data byte.

Notes
A data stream sent through the serial or parallel interface using Binary is
treated the same as a data stream sent through an optional network interface
using QBinary. However, a data stream sent through an optional network
interface using QBinary is not treated the same as a data stream sent through
the same interface using Binary.
The main advantage of using the Binary and Binary Fixed PS protocol modes when
sending binary data is that these modes compress the data stream allowing your documents to be smaller so you can send smaller jobs to the printer. For example, some
device drivers can format bit map images as binary data instead of as ASCII hex data.
&
To implement PS protocol for sending binary data on your system you need a device
driver available with some applications or operating systems, or you can alternatively
use a program to read the data and write out the quoted characters. See your QMS
vendor for any available information on device drivers or binary filter programs.

The term “pen” in the HP-GL emulation refers to a logical pen (in other words, the current pen position) rather than to a physical pen on a plotter. A pen and pen color are
selected to draw images. This emulation supports 8 pens and 8 pen colors.
Although your QMS 3260/4032 Print System is not a color printer, the pen colors can
be converted to shades of gray. In that case, the default color mappings for the 8 pens
are as follows:
»
Pen
Pen Color
Level of Gray
1
Black
100%
2
Black
100%
3
Red
70%

Green
41%
5
Blue
89%
6
Violet
59%
7
Orange
25.8%
8
Brown
50%
Note: The default color for both pen 1 and pen 2 is black. However, the pen width for
these two pens is different. Pen 1 is 0.7 mm and pen 2 is 0.3 mm.
The printer maps each pen to its assigned color, then converts the color to a grayscale
using the National Television System Committee (NTSC) standard equation for
encoding color. This equation converts a given set of CMYK values to grayscale. For
the 8 pen colors assigned to pens 1 - 8, the printer uses the designated grayscale; for
any other pen color, the printer uses the following equation:
[(C*0.3) + (M*0.59) + (Y*0.11) + K] ÷ 255
»
Note: This equation assumes that each grayscale is a byte value that ranges from 0
to 255 (100%). If the sum of the left-side (calculation in brackets) of the NTSC
equation is greater than 255, then the sum is set equal to 255.

Your printer supports printing on several media sizes. Each media size has a certain
imageable area, the maximum area on which the printer can print clearly and without
distortion. This area is subject to both hardware limits (the physical media size and the
margins required by the printer) and software constraints (the amount of memory
available for the full-page frame buffer).

If for any reason, you need to change the image alignment, you can do so in several
different ways:
Adjust the margins or page size through your application.
Use the printer’s control panel (Administration/Engine/Image Alignment menu).
Use the PostScript translate and scale operators to reduce image size and
change its placement on the page.
!
Margins are set through your application. Some applications allow you to set custom
page sizes and margins while others have only standard page sizes and margins from
which to choose. If you choose a standard format, you may lose part of your image
(due to imageable area constraints). If you can custom-size your page, use those
sizes given for the imageable area for optimum results.
!"*#"*
Ensure that the media size matches the tray size (for example, letter/A4 media must
be loaded only when the tray is set to letter/A4 size). Since the tray sends a media
size signal to the printer controller, using a wrong size media could cause a media
jam, incorrect positioning of the image, or a clipped image. Also, see chapter 3,
“Advanced Printing Features,” in the Operation manual for information on the amount
of memory needed to print on each media size.

A named design of a set of printed
characters, such as Times, that has a
specified obliqueness (degree of slant)
and stroke weight (thickness of stroke).
It does not define a particular size.

A group of similar typefaces. For
example, the Times typeface family
consists of four typefaces: Times Roman,
Times Bold, Times Italic, and Times Bold
Italic.
A set of characters of the same
typeface (such as Times), style (such
as italic), stroke weight (such as bold),
and point size (such as 10). Although
you hear the term “font” used more
generally, as if referring to a typeface,
it’s really a subset of a typeface.
A collection of symbols designed for
various printing applications. Many
character sets are composed of the
letters (uppercase and lowercase A-Z),
digits (0-9), and any symbol (such as
blank space, dollar sign, and
ampersand). Other character sets are
composed entirely of symbols.
One way of classifying the different typefaces is to group them into the following categories:

A serif is a decorative line or tail on the ends of
the strokes of a letter. Serifs, usually on the lower
half of a letter, have also been referred to as feet
or curlicues. Courier, ITC Bookman, New Century Schoolbook, Palatino, and Times are serif typefaces. In the example shown, all
the letters except “e” and “o” have serifs.
Times Roman
0
Sans serif (“sans” is French for “without”) indicates a typeface without any of these small tails.
A sans serif typeface is decorative by the shape
and styling of its letters but has less detail than a
serif typeface. Helvetica, Helvetica Condensed, Helvetica Narrow, and ITC Avant
Garde Gothic are all sans serif typefaces. In the example shown above, the slight
curving at the bottom of the letters “t” and “a” is not a serif. It is part of the line forming
the letter rather than a decorative line added on.
Helvetica
Script typefaces simulate handwriting or brush
lettering. Each letter is connected visually, if not
physically. ITC Zapf Chancery is a script typeface.

Pi or symbol typefaces are collections of assorted
special-purpose characters (for example, decorative, graphic, math, or monetary characters). They
are especially useful for highlighting items in lists,
providing graphics, and displaying symbols that might otherwise have to be drawn in
by hand. Many typefaces today include a complement of the more commonly used pi
characters. Symbol and ITC Zapf Dingbats are pi typefaces.

The terms “monospaced” and “fixed-pitch” refer to a typeface whose characters all
have uniform and equal spacing. These typefaces are useful for spreadsheets and
other documents with columnar data. Monospacing is the opposite of proportional
spacing.
The term “proportionally spaced” refers to a typeface in
which the width of each character varies. For example,
the letter “i” is thinner than the letter “m” and therefore
takes up less space. Proportional spacing saves page
space and is easier on the eye. This manual’s text
uses the Helvetica font, a proportionally-spaced typeface. Because proportionally
spaced typefaces place each character according to its individual size, they increase
legibility and readability. This example shows the difference between a monospaced
typeface (Courier) and a proportionally spaced typeface (Times).

A bitmapped font is one in which each character is represented by a set of dot patterns. Each font size requires a
different set of dot patterns.
$ /
A scalable font is one in which each
character’s dot pattern (bitmap) is
generated from a mathematical representation (or outline) of the character. Scalable fonts eliminate the need
to store different font sizes.

Point size refers to the height of a proportionally spaced type1
face. A point is a unit of measure approximately equal to /
72". The larger the point size, the larger the letter. The example shows characters in 8, 10, 12, 24, and 36 point sizes.

Pitch refers to the number of characters per horizontal
inch (cpi) in a monospaced typeface. Therefore, the larger
the pitch, the smaller the letter. For example, a ten-pitch
typeface prints ten characters per inch (or 10 cpi) while a
twelve-pitch typeface prints twelve characters per inch (or
12 cpi). The example shows ten-pitch and twelve-pitch
Courier.

Italic was originally developed in the early sixteenth century as a typeface based on cursive handwriting. Today’s
italics are still individually crafted typefaces designed to
blend with a specific roman (upright) typeface.
Oblique (or slanted) type forms, however, are not
designed and crafted individually but are mechanically slanted versions of the roman form from which
they derive.

Orientation is the direction of the print
or image on a page. Portrait orientation
reads from left to right, across the nar
rower dimension of the page. Landscape orientation also reads from left to
right but places the print across the
wider dimension of the page. Spreadsheet and table applications commonly
use landscape printing. Both terms derive from painting; a portrait is usually a vertical
view while a landscape is usually a horizontal view

Several sources of help and information are available, depending on the type of help
you need.
4# !"
Your local vendor (the one from whom you bought the printer) may be best equipped
to help you. Your vendor has specially trained service technicians available to answer
questions, and the equipment to analyze your printer problems.

Often, “printing” problems have more to do with the application being used than with
the printer. In this case, the application manufacturer is the best source of help.
)(;
Q-FAX, a QMS information retrieval service, provides application notes, technical support notes on common printing problems, and information about printer specifications,
options, accessories, consumables, and prices.
In the United States and Canada, call (800) 633-7213 to reach Q-FAX. In all other
countries, call (334) 633-3850. Have your fax number handy when you call (or place
the call from your fax machine's handset).
You can choose to have either a directory (a list of currently available documents) or a
specific document sent to you. The first time you call, request the directory (press 2 on
your phone or fax keypad when prompted). Then call back to request specific documents. You can order up to three documents per call.
&
The QMS server provides access to technical reports, new product announcements, a
trade show schedule, and other general information about QMS.
If you have access to the World Wide Web, you can view the QMS home page at http:/

The stated life expectancy of each consumable is based on printing under specific
operating conditions, such as media type, number of color planes, page size, and
page coverage (usually 5% coverage of letter/A4-size media). The actual life expectancy will vary depending on these and other printing variables, including continuous or
intermittent printing, ambient temperature, and humidity.

$ Direction refers to the direction of signal flow as viewed from the printer.
Return denotes “twisted-pair return” and is to be connected at signal-ground
level. When wiring the interface, be sure to use a twisted-pair cable for each signal
and never fail to complete connection on the return side. To prevent noise effectively, these cables should be shielded and connected to the chassis of the system
unit and printer, respectively.
All interface conditions are based on Transistor-Transistor Logic (TTL) level. Both
the rise and fall times of each signal must be less than 0.2 microseconds.
Data transfer must be carried out by recognizing the ACKNLG or BUSY signal.
The cable must have an overall braided shield, Belden 8345 or equivalent.
Connectors must have shielded housings. The overall shield must be bonded to
the shielded housings at both ends of the cable.

Various factors can affect a printer’s warranty. Two important ones are consumables
and electrostatic discharge. Read your printer warranty carefully, and then store it in a
safe place.
»
Note: Don’t return any merchandise to the manufacturer without calling for a return
merchandise authorization (RMA) number. See appendix A, “QMS Customer
Support,” for the QMS Customer Service telephone number where you can obtain an
RMA number.
#4#
The use of non-QMS consumables and/or accessories alone does not affect either
your warranty or any maintenance contract you may have purchased. However, if
QMS printer failure or damage is found to be directly attributable to the use of
non-QMS consumables and/or accessories, QMS will not repair the printer free of
charge. In this case, standard time and material charges will be applied to service
your printer for that particular failure or damage. QMS recommends that you use only
QMS consumables and accessories to support your printer. For Information on QMS
products, supplies, and accessories, and on the authorized QMS remarketer or service provider nearest you, in the US, call 1 (800) 523-2696. In all other countries,
check appendix A, “QMS Customer Support,” for the QMS office closest to you.

It's very important to protect the printer controller board and other printer circuit
boards from electrostatic damage.
If an anti-static wrist strap is provided in your printer option kit, attach one end of it
to your wrist and the other end to any convenient electrical ground. The bare metal
chassis of equipment, such as on the back of a computer, is suitable if it is plugged in
but turned off. Never attach the wrist strap to any piece of equipment with an
electrical current present. Turn off all power switches first. Plastic, rubber, wood,
painted metal surfaces, and telephones are not acceptable grounding points. The
printer isn't an acceptable grounding point either because it must be unplugged before
you perform this task.
If you don't have an anti-static wrist strap, discharge your body's static electric
charge by touching a grounded surface before you handle any printer boards or com6###

ponents and before removing the controller board cover. If you must walk around
before completing your task, discharge your body’s static electric charge again before
touching the printer controller board.
Incidental and consequential damages caused by not discharging electrostatic buildup
can affect your printer warranty.
