X2-TECH System Capabilities

• Print documents directly from desktop applications like AutoCAD.

• View the printer queue, cancel print jobs, resolve media mismatches, and change printer defaults remotely with the Web Printer Manager Tool.

• When equipped with the Synergix Scan System, you can scan documents to be stored on the Controller's hard drive, which are then retrievable at your workstation using the AccXES Client Tool’s Retrieve

Tool.

• Create sets of documents, send or cancel print jobs, and view the printer queue from remote workstations with the AccXES Client Tools.

• Effective with Firmware 7.5, an optional Color Enablement feature key is available enabling Scanning-to-Net in color in TIFF and JPEG formats.

• Effective with Firmware 7.5, the Media Page of the Web Printer Manager

Tool (Web PMT) includes a Media Type Menu and a Display Settings

button. The Media Type (drop-down) Menu enables you to select the

Media Types supported by your printer. After selecting a supported

Media Type, the Media Mismatch Mode parameters for that media type can be accessed by clicking the Display Settings button. For the X2-

TECH color printer, upon clicking the Display Settings button an additional parameter known as Media Specific Color Adjustment is available for your selection.

• Media Specific Color Adjustment, accessed from the Media Page of the

Web PMT, enables the independent adjustment of Gamma and Ink Limit for each color separation (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black).

• Effective with Firmware 7.5, a Rendering Page in the Web Printer

Manager Tool allows the setting of a number of image-rendering parameters, including the ability to set the default Print Quality Mode for the X2-TECH printer. The settings of Fast, Normal, or Best take direct advantage of the X2-TECH printer's advanced, print head and speed control capabilities, as exemplified in its RACER technology. One use for the Fast mode, for example, might be in printing primarily black and white

8 documents, containing small amounts of color (for example, monochrome CAD drawings with color logos). A use for the Best mode might be in the inclusion of photographic (raster image) matter within a drawing. Normal mode can be considered a compromise between high speed output and the delivery of continuous tone quality. The factory default setting is Fast.

• When supported by the optional PostScript license, two types of halftoning methods are available for selection from a drop-down menu on the PostScript emulation page of the Web PMT. Halftone Screen renders images with a standard printing press appearance, while Error

Diffusion renders images with more of a continuous tone (photographic

appearance). Note that error diffused images, which are computationally intensive, take considerably longer to process and print.

System Capabilities (continued)

Effect of PostScript Jobs on Copies, Collation and

Finishing Settings

IMPORTANT NOTE: The PostScript language supports the ability to modify the number of copies, collation, and finishing settings of the

AccXES Controller.

In certain cases, it is possible for the PostScript settings for copies, collation, and finishing to override the default settings of the Controller producing the appearance of unexpected results. These cases include:

• For a single data format job* which contains a PJL header and a

PostScript file, the copies, collation, and finishing parameters specified in the PostScript file take precedence for the job and behave according to the PostScript Language Reference Manual. (If the PostScript collation parameter is true, PostScript copies is a JOB parameter. If PostScript collation is false, PostScript copies is a page parameter.)

• For a multiple data format job* which contains a PJL header, file 1 is any data format EXCEPT PostScript. Files 2 (or later) are comprised of data formats including PostScript, and the PJL header parameters for copies, collation, and finishing, which would take precedence for all files in the job. If file 2 (or later) is a PostScript file which specifies collation or finishing, then those settings are ignored. If the PostScript file specifies copies, that value is applied to the PostScript file only.

• For a multiple data format job* which contains a PJL header, if file 1 is a

PostScript job that specifies copies, collation, or finishing, the PostScript values for collation and finishing take precedence for ALL files in the job and behave according to the PostScript Language Reference Manual. (If the PostScript collation parameter is true, PostScript copies is a JOB parameter. If PostScript collation is false, PostScript copies is a page parameter.)

* Note that if a Banner Page is enabled BEFORE the job, the job is treated as a multiple data format job with the banner page being file 1.

Problem Solving

(8825/8830/8850)

Should the Controller fail to operate correctly, it has the ability, in most cases, to advise you how to solve the problem with messages displayed on Control

Panels, as well as on the printed ERROR/WARNING PAGE.

The test prints (PRINTER CONFIGURATION and PRINTER SETTINGS) that you can run with the “Utilities Menu” on the Printer Control Panel, print out all the current settings, the status of the Controller, key information on the

Network Interface Card(s), and a list of the most recent errors encountered during printer operation. Test prints can also be printed from the Web PMT, by selecting Printer Defaults > Test Print, then choosing the type of test print.

When a problem occurs, take the following actions:

• Observe the display on the Printer Control Panel and the display on the

Scanner Control Panel. Note any error messages. Find the error message in the ”Printer Control Panel Displayed Error Codes” section of this user guide, then perform the appropriate action. If these problems persist, call for Xerox Service.

• Refer to the ERROR/WARNING PAGE, if printed, for causes of the problem. Most of the errors listed will be data or file errors from the workstation, requiring the sender to make corrections. If these problems persist, refer to the appropriate software documentation for your workstation.

34

NOTE: By default, an ERROR/WARNING PAGE is printed when a

LEVEL1 error (hard error) exists that will not allow the data file to print. A

LEVEL2 enable is available through the “Setup Printer” and “Error Page” sub-menus of the “Utilities Menu” on the Printer Control Panel. The

LEVEL2 selection prints an ERROR/WARNING page when any error

(hard or soft) exists, even though the data file may still print.

• Run a PRINTER CONFIGURATION Test Print from the “Utilities Menu”, or from the Web PMT, and check all options and enables to determine if they are correctly set for your current installation. For full details, see

“Making Test Prints” in this System Introduction manual.

Problem Solving (continued)

Problem Solving (8855 & X2-

TECH)

For the 8855: LED (light emitting diode) displays on the 8855 Printer and its

UP8 Controller will advise you of basic operating problems. (See the 8855 &

X2-TECH Controller Status LED Table in this System Introduction manual.)

For the X2-TECH: An LCD (liquid crystal display) on the X2-TECH Printer

and an LED (light emitting diode) display on the KLF Controller will advise you of basic operating problems. For the meanings of error messages displayed on the printer's LCD, refer to Appendix A of the ColorgrafX X2 User Guide.

For an explanation of Controller Status LEDs, see the 8855 & X2-TECH

Controller Status LED Table in this System Introduction manual.

In addition, unless the factory default setting has been changed with the Web

PMT, the Controller will generate error pages for all "Level 1" (failure to print) processing errors.

A full array of test prints is also available through the Test Print group of the

Printer Defaults Side Menu of the Web PMT. These test prints provide valuable information on the printer's configuration, network address, error codes, operating parameter settings, and pen settings.

When a problem occurs, take the following actions:

• Observe the 8855 LED and X2-TECH LCD displays on the Printer, and the LEDs on your AccXES Controller. Find the error message in the lists in this section, then perform the appropriate action. If the problem persists, call for Xerox Service.

• Refer to the ERROR/WARNING PAGE, if printed, for causes of the problem. Most of the errors listed will be data or file errors from the

XES Synergix 8825/8830/8850/8855 & X2-TECH System Introduction workstation, requiring the sender to make corrections. If these problems persist, refer to the appropriate software documentation for your workstation.

NOTE: By default, an ERROR/WARNING PAGE is printed when a

LEVEL1 error exists that will not allow the data file to print. A LEVEL2 selection is available through the Miscellaneous Page of the Web PMT.

The LEVEL2 selection prints an ERROR/WARNING page when any error exists, even though the data file may still print.

PRINTER SETTINGS Test Print

The Settings test print provides a printout of all the job-related, system settings and processing defaults currently stored in the Controller. If your individual job results are not what you expected, you may have neglected to modify parameters with your application print driver or the Document Submit

Tool options, and are therefore using these defaults for printing.

For information on how to temporarily change your job processing parameters, see “Changing System Parameters to Meet Your Needs” in this

System Introduction manual.

For full details on permanently changing the XES Synergix 8825/8830/8850 printer's defaults using the 8825/8830/8850 Printer Control Panel, go to the

XES Synergix 8825/8830/8850 Controller Setup Manual.

For full details on permanently changing the XES Synergix 8855 printer's operating defaults or the X2-TECH's operating defaults, go to the Web Printer

Using Test Prints (continued)

PRINTER PEN SETTINGS Test Print

Eight user defined pen palettes, and one factory default (read only) pen palette, are stored within the printer's Controller in support of CGM, CalComp

906/907, VCGL (color feature only), VDS, HP-GL/HP-GL/2 data formats.

Stored pen palettes may be selected to support any of the above-listed emulations. For the XES Synergix 8825/8830/8850 printers, you select an emulation-supporting palette through the Printer Control Panel’s “Setup

Printer” / “Emulations” menus. For the XES Synergix 8855 printer and the

X2-TECH printer, you select an emulation-supporting palette using the

EMULATIONS group of the Printer Defaults Side menu of the Web PMT.

Within each of the 8 user-defined pen palettes there are 256 pens whose line drawing attributes can be modified.

Shown in a horizontal line at the top of the Printer Pen Settings Test Print are

50 available pen patterns that are resident within the printer and cannot be changed by the user. The range of patterns runs from 0 (which draws a solid black line) to 49 (which draws a line comprised of a pattern to the immediate right of the “smiley face” (#48) pattern). Any of these patterns can be applied to any of the 256 pens of each pen palette.

The next horizontal line of blank boxes (50 to 64) represents 15 available spots for patterns defined by the user, enabling custom-created patterns to be applied to any of the 256 pens of each pen palette.

For each numbered pen (0 to 255) of each palette, there are four attributes that can be set by the user. These attributes are Width (of line) in mm,

Pattern (of line), Color (of line), and Overrides. Width specifies the width of

the drawn line. Pattern applies a pattern to the drawn line (specified from the range of printer-resident or user-defined patterns). Color varies the grayscale appearance of the drawn line since the proportional mixing of Red (R), Green

(G), and Blue (B) on a black and white printer results in various shades of gray. Overrides, for Width (W), Pattern (P), and Color (C) attributes for each pen, are factory set to the default value of zero (0), indicating that if the palette is applied to the print job, the attributes for each pen–with override set to zero–will be utilized.

40

Depending upon whether the palette source parameter is set to JOB or to

PRINTER at the Printer Control Panel (through “Setup Printer” /

“Emulations”), or by using the Web Printer Manager Tool at the remote desktop, the pen palette associated with a desktop-submitted print job or the pen palette stored within the printer will be used.

Controller Error Codes

The Controller firmware supports the printing of the Error Code Log as part of the information contained in the CONFIGURATION Test Print. The information is displayed in the following format.

ERROR LOG:

(NNNNNNNN,CCCCCCCCCC

Where:

NNNNNNNN is a decimal number representing the number of seconds the

Controller has been powered on and running.

CCCCCCCC represents the error code.

The first (NNNNNNNN,CCCCCCCC) pair displayed contains the total number of seconds the Controller has been powered on and running and an error code of 00000000. A maximum of 19 additional (NNNNNNNN,CCCCCCCC) pairs are displayed. The number of seconds of power-on time displayed in the additional pairs is the time at which the error occurred. The additional pairs are displayed in order from most recent to oldest error. Restoring

Factory Defaults will clear the error codes from the log. Loading a new release of firmware on the Controller will also clear the error codes from the log. The total number of seconds of power-on time value is not cleared by restoring Factory Defaults.

Instructions for restoring factory defaults, are provided in the XES Synergix

8825/8830/8850 Controller Setup Manual for Firmware 8.0, or in the Web

Printer Manager Tool User Guide (for firmware version 8.0).

For full firmware uploading instructions see the Firmware Release Notes that accompany all firmware releases (on CD or the Internet at www.xes.com).

SCSI Device Error Codes

Displayed in the Controller Configuration error log of the PRINTER

CONFIGURATION Test Print, SCSI Device Error Codes are in the

“1ncckkaa” format. The meaning of the error codes follows

Code n cc kk aa

Meaning is the SCSI ID of device (0-F) is the SCSI Command being executed at time of error is the SCSI Sense Key returned by command is the SCSI Additional Sense Code returned by command

The SCSI ID should be used to determine the device which caused the error.

The Controller firmware only supports an internal SCSI Hard Disk Drive

(typically SCSI ID = 0). During normal operation no SCSI Hard Disk Drive errors should be logged. If errors are logged to the Controller Error Code Log that indicate a problem with the SCSI Hard Disk Drive refer to the

XES Synergix 8825/8830/8850/8855 & X2-TECH System Introduction

Appendix 3 - Key Features of the X2-

TECH Color Printer/Digital Solution

X2-TECH Color Printer

• Resolution of 360 x 360 or 720 x 720 dpi in both monochrome and full color.

• Six print heads apply instantly drying, pigmented, oil based inks to media in 4 colors (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black).

• Equipment is available in two width formats, capable of printing on media rolls up to 36" wide, or on media rolls up to 54" wide, depending upon your order and installation.

• Media types currently supported include: Presentation Bond 360 dpi and

720 dpi, White Matte Film 360 dpi, Backlit Film 360 and 720 dpi, Poly

Cloth 360 dpi, Poly Canvas 360 dpi, Photo Quality 360 dpi, Reinforced

Paper 360, PSV 360, Production Paper 360, and 90 Gram Graphic Art paper.

• Available roll sizes for each supported media type can be quickly and easily checked from the supplies page of the XES website at www.xes.com

.

• Supported Media types can be selected from the Media Page of the Web

PMT, enabling the independent adjustment of Gamma and Ink Limit for each color separation (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black).

• Throughput of up to 3 D size prints per minute in Black and White, and up to 1.4 D size prints in color. Output speeds depend upon the Quality

Mode selected for printing (Fast, Normal, or Best). Speed specifications are stated in the XES X2-TECH Color Inkjet Printer product sheet available on the Internet at www.xes.com

.

• Exclusive to the X2-TECH, new RACER (Rapid Acceleration of Color

Element Recognition) technology optimizes print speed based upon file composition. For example, using the three black print heads to print black and white portions of the document, while printing color portions with the three black heads and the three color heads, this feature speeds up printing of mainly black and white documents, containing small amounts of color (such as color logos on monochrome CAD drawings).

Controller Firmware

• Convenient administration of printer operating settings from individual workstations using the Web PMT.

• Print queue can be viewed and managed (with the appropriate password) at individual workstations using the Web PMT or Printer Queue in the

AccXES Client Tools.

• Media Mismatch queuing routes any page of a job for which the proper paper type or size is not loaded to a separate queue. Other pages or jobs compatible with the loaded paper type or size continue to print.. Note that

Substitution is not a valid setting for the X2-TECH color printer. For information on Media Mismatch setting, see the Media Page of the Web

PMT User Guide (for firmware 8.0).

• Bi-directional capabilities of the Windows RTL/GL2 Print Drivers communicate with the Controller to determine the feature set to display.

• A Net Port Monitor, available for installation with the RTL/GL2 Drivers, provides a reliable port for TCP/IP network printing.

• Optional Job Accounting enables the recording of copying, scanning, and printing activities.

• Plot Nesting allows the most advantageous use of media by arranging single or multiple page jobs on the output media to minimize waste.

• Scanning to the network, which is a standard feature of the X2-TECH

Digital Solution, provides a convenient way to retrieve scanned documents at the local workstation in TIFF, CALS, and PDF formats.

• Effective with Firmware Release 7.5, a new Color Enablement feature key is available enabling Scanning-to-Net in color in TIFF and JPEG formats. The printing of JPEG files is also enabled in Firmware Release

7.5.

66

Synergix Scan System

• Documents can be scanned to be printed or retrieved through the network.

• Media options (e.g., media location, media type, image quality) and output format are selected through menu choices or buttons on the user interface.

• Job accounting can be used to record copying and scanning activities.

Web Print Manager Tool

• This tool is used to change printer default settings, (such as adding labels or stamps, using plot nesting, page composition, rotation, or scale to fit features). This tool is also used to view the status or change the priority of print jobs in the print queue.

• The Web PMT is accessed from your workstation using the Netscape 4.0

(or newer) or Internet Explorer 4.0 (or newer) web browser. It is part of the AccXES Controller software.

Appendix 3 (continued)

AccXES Client Tools Software

This is a set of tools including the Device Manager Tool, the Document

Submit Tool, the Document Retrieve Tool, and the Printer Queue Tool.

These tools are used from your PC or Unix workstation to do the following:

• Establish a connection from your workstation to your X2-TECH color printer and scanner (if so equipped).

• Create sets of documents that can be saved as a single file and sent to a remote printer from your workstation.

• Assign and manipulate printing options to individual images/documents for features such as media size/type, rotation, page composition, labels, stamps.

• Retrieve scanned images from the Controller to your workstation to be added to a document set, or saved to your file system.

• Observe the printer queue and cancel print jobs.

AccXES Account Management Tool

This optional tool for the X2-TECH allows you to assign accounts for the recording of copying, scanning, and printing activities; to query the

Controller's Job Log file for job accounting data; and to save the retrieved data for use in the creation of reports.

Print Drivers

• HP-GL/2/HP RTL print drivers for Windows 95, 98, NT4, and 2000, are also optimized for use with AutoCAD 2000, 2000i, and 2002.
