Chapter 1
Features
This device is an electrophotographic black-and-white raster plotter
which produces plots by receiving graphic data created by a work station
or PC (hereafter referred to as a computer.)
This device is equipped with the following features:
High speed plotting
output, high resolution
This device has 80 mm (3.15 inches)/sec recording speed and
can output A0 size drawings at 3.4 sheets per minute. It can also
output high accuracy drawings at 600 dpi resolution.
2-roll paper feeding
mechanism, long drawing
compatible
This device employs a 2-roll paper feeding mechanism that sets
2 sizes from a choice of 4 sizes: A0 size (or 36 inch size), A1 (or
24 inch size), A2 (or 18 inch size), and A3 (or 12 inch size). By
employing paper rolls compatible with drawing sizes ranging
from A0 to A4, a low running cost is achieved by reducing paper
consumption.
This device can also output 2.5 m / 98.4 inch size (10 m / 393.7
inch for the LP-1020L) long sheet drawings. The maximum
plotting range of this device is as follows:
(Note)
Picture quality and printing accuracy can only be assured for plain paper
and recycled paper. (Only up to twice the length of the standard-size
paper can be assured for tracing paper and film.)
LP-1020
• A0 size paper roll : 841 × 2500 mm (33.1 × 98.4 inches)
• A1 size paper roll : 594 × 1830 mm (23.4 × 72 inches)
• A2 size paper roll : 420 × 1200 mm (16.5 × 47.2 inches)
• A3 size paper roll : 297 × 920 mm (11.7 × 36.2 inches)
LP-1020L
• A0 size paper roll : 841 × 10,000 mm (33.1 × 393.7 inches)
• A1 size paper roll : 594 × 10,000 mm (23.4 × 393.7 inches)
• A2 size paper roll : 420 × 1220 mm (16.5 × 47.2 inches)
• A3 size paper roll : 297 × 920 mm (11.7 × 36.2 inches)

▼Features
This device is equipped with a manual feeding print function.
(Note)
The picture quality and printing accuracy for manually fed printing cannot
be assured.
Multiport interface
The device is equipped with an Ethernet interface and allows for
network connection to network. It can also be equipped with
both parallel interface and USB interface. In addition, 10 logical
ports can be used for the Ethernet interface, which then allows
up to 12 computers, including parallel interface and USB
interface, to be simultaneously connected.
Supports a variety of
paper types
4 types of rolls—paper, recycled paper, tracing paper, and
film—are supported.
Front paper feeding/
finished drawing outlet
The device has a front paper feeding and finished drawing outlet
structure. This allows for paper to be loaded and output drawings
to be processed only at the front of the device. This means that
the device requires only a small installation space.
The device was designed for simple, front operation, allowing
paper to be loaded and toner cartridges to be replaced with ease.

▼Replacing paper rolls
Precautions during replacement
◆The rolls are heavy so be careful not to hurt yourself by
dropping them while you are replacing the rolls.
◆When attaching the rolls, use a cutter to cut the end of the
paper roll. While doing this, take care not to cut yourself or
damage the device.
◆When opening and closing the paper roll drawers, take care
not to get your hands caught in the drawer.
Do not open other paper roll drawers while one paper roll
drawer is open. Doing so will increase your chances of
getting your hands caught in the drawers.
Notes
◆If you change the paper type, you must also change the
device settings accordingly. ⇒ chapter 7
◆Use media types specified by our company.
If you use media types which are not specified by our
company, we cannot assure printing quality.
◆Store the paper in a cool, dark location with low humidity.

◆Except when you install the Process cartridge into the device
body, keep the cover on the Process cartridge cover to
protect the photoconductor drum and to prevent optical
deterioration.
◆Some black developing toner may be visible on the
photoconductor drum of a new Process cartridge. This is to
ensure that the cartridge is kept in a ready-to-use condition
at all times, so you may use it as it is. After the cartridge is
mounted on the device body, cleaning will automatically start
so you need not worry about the liquid affecting printing
quality.
◆Since waste toner remains in the used Process cartridge,
take care not to shake it strongly, tilt it sharply, or hit it with
force as this may cause waste toner to spill out.

Chapter 2 Basic operations
(3) Change the apply roll setting
Set the roll used to ON in the apply roll setting process (page 11-6).
It is recommended to set rolls not to be used to OFF.
When using the cut paper of the China series only, this step is not needed.
Limiting rolls to be used
When limiting rolls to be used for operation to A0 and A1 rolls, for
example, the following process is recommended.
(1) Setting the apply roll
Set the rolls to be used to ON in the apply roll setting process (page 11-6).
Set the rolls not used to OFF.
When using only the A0 and A1 rolls, for example, set as follows:
Use A0 roll = ON
Use A1 roll = ON
Use A2 roll = OFF
Use A3 roll = OFF
(2) In case of no paper
If there is no paper when starting to print with this device, reloading of
paper will be prompted on the control panel. At this time, rolls which
have been set to OFF in the setting of apply rolls are not required.
(3) In case of optimum mode
When the auto supply mode is set to the optimum mode (page 5-12), a
roll which will leave the least wasted paper will be automatically selected
from the rolls having been set to ON in the apply roll setting process. If
the roll with the least remainder is not installed on the device, loading
paper will be required by the control panel.

Channels and ports
This device is equipped with standard Ethernet interface connectors. The
Ethernet interface has 10 logical ports. Moreover, the device is capable of
parallel and USB interface connection when the device has been
equipped with these 2 types of interface. This allows the device to receive
data from up to 12 computers simultaneously.
This device has 4 types of plotting parameter tables for each port on the
Ethernet interface, 4 types for the parallel interface, and 1 type for the
USB interface, for a total of 45 available types.
Each parameter table is set in “SETUP MENU.” To use the ports, it is
necessary to enable the Ethernet parameters corresponding to each port
beforehand in “SYSTEM MENU.”

as PDL.
Data format auto-judging
This device is equipped with a function to automatically recognize and
process the format of the received data.
This function allows data of different formats to be sent to a single
channel or port and to have this data plotted.
There are 4 formats which can be judged: D-SCAN format, HP-GL
format, TIFF, and CALS format.
The data format auto-recognition function cannot be used for the USB
channel. For the USB port, connect our company’s printer driver.

Jobs
The device manages the received data in units of “jobs.” Data transferred
in units of “FILES” and data managed by the device in units of “JOBS”
refer to the same thing.
However, as data comprised of multiple drawings can also managed as a
single job. So one print job isn’t mecessarily composed of one drawing.
For all print fobs, the print status of the job can be checked from the
remote control, the print order can be changed, and reprinting etc. is
available.
Reprinting
By using the “REPRINT” function in the Job menu, pre-processed jobs
can be moved to the top of the list of jobs standing by to be processed.
This function allows you to reprint jobs which have already been printed.
Also, at the time of printing you can specify the number of copies and
change printing parameters.

PDL menu
The various print parameters can be set in the PDL table from the Panel
setup menu. The PDL processing program performs print processing in
accordance with the print parameter settings.
Setting each print parameter allows for convenient operation by allowing
you to change how paper is fed and delivered, and enables you to reduce
the scale of a drawing.
When using our company’s printer driver
When using our company’s printer driver (when the print driver
“OPTION SHEET” from “OUTPUT PROCESS SELECT” in
“FORMAT” has been set to C2VR), the printer parameters set for this
device are disabled and printing is performed in accordance with the print
parameters set for the print driver (printing in accord with the print driver
settings).
If you wish to enable the PDL menu print parameters using our
company’s print driver, go to Format parameters and set the “PRINT
DRIVER” to “DISABLE” (initial parameter is print driver: disabled).
“PRINT DRIVER” ENABLE / DISABLE / CHINESE
However, as all print parameters set for the printer driver are disabled by
this action, set the each print parameter as required on the device.
To operate the device with China series paper using the print driver, set
the print driver to Chinese. In this case, operation will be performed as
base table plotting.

Error log
Each time an error or warning occurs in the device, it is displayed on the
control panel and also the error log information is saved in the internal
memory.
The error log information saved in the internal memory includes
additionally the time when an error occurred, and therefore you can
confirm the error log using the “ERROR PRINT” on the function menu.
This error log information is saved even after the power was turned off.
The type of error/warning is classified as follows:
(1) Classification: E (Service Call)
An unrecoverable error that needs the service person's
intervention.
(2) Classification: O (Operator Call)
An error that the operator can take actions to fix.
(3) Classification: W (Warning)
A warning, such as being low on consumables, or that
a data error occurred.
Format of Message
Each error/warning message to be logged if an error or warning occurs
classifies one character (+ space) at the top of the message as the error/
warning identifier.
The log message is composed of alphanumerics and thus it does not
necessarily match the message displayed on the control panel.

If "BOTTLE MAINT. STARTS" appears
In order to prevent the waste toner from accumulating unevenly in the
waste toner bottle, this device provides a maintenance function that taps
the waste toner bottle to level the waste toner when the specified amount
of print is executed.
Though the waste toner maintenance function has been set in the factory
so that it starts automatically when the specified amount of print is
executed, you can change the setting so that a message to prompt you to
perform the maintenance appears. In this case, the maintenance does not
start unless the key is pressed. (⇒ page 6-6)
■If "MANUAL" is set
The message shown below appears to prompt you to perform the
maintenance of waste toner bottle.
If the
key is pressed, the message is switched and the maintenance
starts.
The maintenance is performed for about 30 seconds, and taps will be
heard during the operation.
