This manual covers the Toshiba Eraser embedded MFD setup. For general PaperCut MF
documentation, please see the PaperCut MF manual.
1 Overview
PaperCut has partnered with Toshiba TEC to expand into new eco-capabilities for PaperCut MF,
integrating with the e-STUDIO306LP/ RD30 multi-function printer (MFP) solution. The e-STUDIO is
the world’s first eco-friendly MFP system that can erase images and text on pages, allowing those
pages to the reused and therefore minimizing an organizations’ overall environmental impact. To
support this cutting-edge technology, PaperCut MF now tracks erased pages and promotes ecofriendly behaviour to PaperCut users.
PaperCut raises the visibility of total pages erased for both the system administrator and the end
user. The pages erased are prominent in the Administration Dashboard, the Environmental
Dashboard and the Windows Live Tile.

For customers wanting to track and promote their environmental impact and change user
behaviour, targets for pages erased can be set and monitored across the organization.
Environmental policies and initiatives can be promoted through PaperCut MF in real time. Share
erasing statistics throughout the organization including:


The number of successfully erased sheets of paper
The erase reclaim rate when the “Erase and Sort” mode on the RD30 is enabled.
These features will be officially supported in PaperCut MF Version 14.3 and are designed to work
with the Toshiba RD30 device.
The following manual provides detail of the installation, configuration and operation of PaperCut MF
with the e-STUDIO306LP/RD30.

6. Press OK, to create the device.
7. On the device details page, change options as required. For example, here you can change
the external device settings if you made a mistake earlier.
8. Press “OK” to save the changes.
9. The device appears on the device list. If the connection to the device is established the
status column will not have an “error” state.
3 Post-install testing
After completing installation and basic configuration it is recommended to perform some testing of
the common usage scenarios. This is important for two reasons:
1. To ensure that the embedded application is working as expected
2. To familiarize yourself with the features and functionality of PaperCut and the embedded
application.
The PRD operates in two erasing modes:


Erase
Erase and Sort
If the PRD is in Erase and Sort mode, then it will erase the pages and afterwards sort them into two
different trays as to whether the entire page was erased or not. This sorting information is used in
the "Erasing effectiveness" metric displayed in the System Status widget of the PaperCut
Administration Dashboard. If the PRD is in Erase (only) mode, then the page is erased but not sorted
and the "Erasing effectiveness" will not be altered.

At the Toshiba printer and PRD:
1. Create two non-duplex pages using an erasable compatible printer such as the eSTUDIO306LP. On one of the pages, write some text using a non erasing pen (e.g. not a
FriXion pen)
2. Put the two test pages into the PRD, choose Erase and Sort mode and hit the start button.
This should ensure that one of the pages is completely erased and reusable and the other
page will be considered rejected as it can not erase the pen marks that were added.
Back in the PaperCut application verify that the erasing activity was recorded.
1. Log into PaperCut as an admin.
2. Go to the Dashboard page.
3. Look at the new Environmental Savings widget and check that the "sheets erased" have
increased by two sheets. And if this is the first experiment on the device, you can check that
the "reclaim rate" is 50%. The "reclaim rate" is the number of reused sheets divided by the
sum of the reused sheets and rejected sheets. It provides an idea of how successful the
erasing has been when the "erase and sort" mode is used on the PRD.
4. Look at the Environmental Impact widget and check that the "sheets erased" have increased
by two sheets.
5. Log into PaperCut as a non-admin user.
6. Click on the link to "Open Environmental Dashboard".

5 FAQ & Troubleshooting
My Toshiba eraser device is reporting an error about the connection?
There are a number of possible problems. Check the following:


In the PaperCut admin site, go to the “Devices” tab and select the device:
o Verify that the “Device hostname / IP” is correct.
o Check that the Device’s administrator username and password are correct.
Verify that ODCA has been enabled and the default port of 49629 was used.
Adding up the individual device erasing counts as seen in TopAccess's counter page do not match
with the global erasing count in PaperCut's administration Dashboard.
The global erasing counter as seen in the administration Dashboard will accumulate the erased
sheets from the time the device was created in PaperCut and not account for erased jobs from the
past. For example, when the very first eraser device is added to PaperCut, the number of erased
sheets will be zero whereas the device's erased sheets as seen in TopAccess will include any
previously erased sheets before PaperCut started monitoring.
The addition of rejected sheets and reused sheets do not necessarily equal the number of erased
sheets. The "reclaim rate" may not change as more sheets are erased.
This is because the rejected and reused sheet counters (which are used to calculate the reclaim rate)
are only updated if the user chooses the "Erase and Sort" mode. The sorting component is what
decides as to whether the paper can be reused or not. If the user uses "Erase" mode then we have
no added information about the reclaim rate.
