Quick Start for Job Accounting
Effective with Firmware 7.5, the recording of printing, copying and scanning
activities (media and equipment use) is accomplished with the AccXES
Account Management Tool running on a networked client workstation.
When the XES Job Accounting license is optionally purchased (8825 and X2TECH) or provided as a standard item of your system purchase

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.

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.
This top block shows the
current settings of each
emulation.

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
Meaning
n
is the SCSI ID of device (0-F)
cc
is the SCSI Command being executed at time of error
kk
is the SCSI Sense Key returned by command
aa
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
“Description / Action” section of the following table to determine the
appropriate action.

XES Synergix 8825/8830/8850/8855 & X2-TECH System Introduction
Appendix 3 - Key Features of the X2TECH 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).
64
Appendix 3 (continued)
•
Scan-to-Net is a standard feature with the purchase of an X2-TECH
Digital Solution (printer, Controller, and scanner).
AccXES Controller
•
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

image-rendering parameters, including Print Quality Mode (Fast, Normal,
or Best), and Fineline Grayscale Rendering, specifying how fine lines
should be rendered when the Render Mode is set to Grayscale..
•
When supported by the optional PostScript license, two types of
halftoning methods are available for selection from a new 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.
•
Plug-and-play performance in standalone or networked configurations
with multiple ports: RS-232C Serial port; Bi-directional, IEEE P1284
Parallel port; VPI; Ultra SCSI; and 10/100 T/TX Ethernet port.
