Introduction
Introduction
This chapter lists the media sizes and imageable areas supported by
the QMS 4060 Print System, and then provides information on selecting and storing media.
Media Sizes and Imageable
Areas
Your printer supports media in a number of sizes. Each media size
has a certain imageable area, the maximum area on which the printer
can print. 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).
»
Note: 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 media tray sends a media size signal to the printer
controller, using a wrong size media will cause your image to be
positioned incorrectly on the page or clipped and can result in paper
jams.
Imageable Area
The imageable area is the area on which the printer is guaranteed to
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).

Working Within the Imageable Area
The imageable areas for print media on your QMS 4060 Print System
may vary 1/16" (1.6 mm). This is normal mechanical engine alignment
tolerances. You can adjust the alignment of the image in several different ways:
n
Adjust the margins or page size through your application.
n
Use the printer’s control panel (Administration/Engine/Image
Alignment menu).
n
Use the PostScript translate and scale operators to reduce
image size and change its placement on the page.

Media Types
and Weights
Page Margins
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.
Media Types and Weights
Your printer supports envelopes, labels, paper, postcards, and transparencies in a number of sizes. The following information provides
media types and weights that your printer supports.
Labels
Type
See appendix B, “Technical Specifications,” for information on typical
types of labels.
Weight
The printer supports 31-36 lb (120-139 g/m2) labels.
Paper
Type
Use paper recommended for laser printers, such as Hammermill
Laser Print. See appendix B, “Technical Specifications,” for information on typical types of paper.

Weight
The printer supports the following weights of paper:
n
Paper trays—17-36 lb (64-139 g/m2)
n
Large-Capacity Input Feeder—17-36 lb (64-139 g/m2)
Transparencies
Type
See appendix B, “Technical Specifications,” for information on typical
types of transparencies.
Heat Tolerance
The printer supports transparencies able to withstand the heat generated by the fuser (190° C/374° F), without transformation.
Media Storage
Improperly stored media increases the chance of paper jams during
printing and can drastically affect the print quality of the printed page.

Introduction
Introduction
This chapter defines common terms used in the description of fonts
and typefaces, and displays the printer’s resident typefaces.
About Typefaces and Fonts
Many of the terms and phrases used in desktop publishing are
derived from the language of professional printers and typesetters.
This section explains common words and phrases used when discussing typefaces.
Typeface
Typeface Family
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.
Font
Character Set
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 only a
member of a typeface family.
3-2
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 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.

About
Typefaces and
Fonts
Typeface Classification
One way of classifying the different typefaces is to group them into
the following categories:
Serif
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
Sans Serif
Helvetica
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.
Script
Script typefaces simulate handwriting or brush lettering. Each letter is
connected visually, if not
physically. ITC Zapf Chancery is a
script typeface.

About
Typefaces and
Fonts
Pi or Symbol
Σψµβολ
Pi or symbol typefaces are
collections of assorted specialpurpose 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.
Typography Terms
Monospacing
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.
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 proportional
typeface (Times).

About
Typefaces and
Fonts
Bitmapped Font
A bitmapped font is a one in which each
character is represented by a set of dot
patterns. Each font size requires a different
set of dot patterns.
Scalable Font
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 many different
font sizes.
Point Size
Point size refers to the height of a proportionally spaced typeface. A
point is a unit of measure equal to 1/72". Therefore, the larger the point
size, the larger the letter. The following example shows characters in
8, 10, 12, 24, and 36 point sizes:
AB
C
DE
Pitch
Pitch refers to the number of characters per horizontal inch (cpi) in a
monospaced typeface. Therefore, the larger the pitch, the smaller the
mathematic
letter. For example, a ten-pitch typeface
prints ten characters per inch (or 10 cpi)
0
1
while a twelve-pitch typeface prints
mathematical
twelve characters per inch (or 12 cpi).
The example shows ten-pitch and twelve0
1
pitch Courier.

Stoke weight (light/medium/bold) is the
width (thickness) of the lines (strokes) that
make up a character. The example at left
shows the medium and bold weights of
Palatino.
Italic and Oblique Forms
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.
Times Roman

ITC Avant Garde Roman
ITC Avant Garde Oblique
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
Orientation is the direction of the print or image on a page. Portrait
orientation reads from left to right, across the narrower 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

Resident Fonts,

derive from painting; a portrait is usually a vertical view while a landscape is usually a horizontal view.

Introduction
Introduction
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 Administrator’s 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).
Methods of Configuration
You have five ways to configure your printer to meet your printing
needs:
n
Through an application
n
Through printer commands
n
Through the printer control panel
n
Through a remote console (for network users)
n
Through a local console
Using an Application
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
4-2
QMS 4060 Print System Reference
Methods of
Configuration
printer control panel. Your application documentation explains how to
control your printer settings: probably by choosing options from a
printing menu.
Applications use printer drivers to send appropriate commands to the
printer for requested tasks. If your application doesn’t have a QMS
4060 Print System driver, you can select a comparable PostScript
driver, such as the QMS Level 2 Windows driver or a LaserWriter
driver. However, comparable drivers may not allow you to access all
of your printer's features, such as 600x600 dpi printing, duplexing, or
collating.
Using QMS Document Option Commands
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 on the
QMS Software Utilities CD-ROM for information on the DOC commands. See appendix C, “Document Option Commands,” of this manual for a list of DOCs this printer supports.
Using the Control Panel
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.
Using a Remote Console
Many of the configuration choices that can be made at the control
panel can also be made via a Remote Console session from
CrownAdmin. You can run Remote Console via Telnet a TCP/IP enviPrinter Configuration
4-3
Configuration
Menu
ronment. 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.
Using the Local Console Port
The Local Console port can also allow you to make configuration
choices that are normally made at the control panel. See chapter 6,
“Local and Remote Console,” of the Operations manual for more
information.
»
Note: If a local console has the printer off line, pressing the Online
button will not take effect until the console puts the printer back on
line.
Configuration Menu
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:
n
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.
4-4
QMS 4060 Print System Reference
Configuration
Menu
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.
»
n
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/
Network/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.
»
n
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.
Accessing the Configuration Menu
To access the configuration menu, make sure the printer is idle (IDLE
displays in the message window), then press the Online button to
take the printer off line (the Online button function changes to Offline),
and finally press the Menu button.
Example
The following table shows how to use control panel buttons to access

Sometimes, rather than selecting an option, you need to enter character information. 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

When you exit, the printer verifies character information and confirms
it in the message window. If character information is valid, you’re
returned to the previous menu; if 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.

Working with Chunk Collation
For a multiple copy document with collation On, there must be
enough display list memory to hold the display list blocks for all pages
in the collation range. See the “Memory” section in chapter 5, for
more information on the Display List compressed blocks. If there is
not enough memory, then a chunk collation boundary is forced after
the last compiled page of the collation range.
»
Note: Under normal conditions with 32 MB of RAM and the internal
hard disk for virtual memory, your QMS 4060 should have enough
memory to prevent chunk collation from occurring.
Printer Configuration
4-19
Operator Control
Menu
Chunk Collation
This mechanism of introducing a forced boundary is known as chunk
collation. Chunk collation breaks a document into several smaller,
more manageable sets. For example, in the following illustration, copies “a” and “b” of each set must be manually combined to create one
collated document. The order of printing is copy 1(a), copy 2(a), copy
3(a), copy 4(a), copy 1(b), copy 2(b), copy 3(b), and copy 4(b).
»
Note: The order of output on your QMS 4060 Print System is from
first to last page.
To improve collation performance, which allows you to collate longer
and more complex print jobs on the QMS 4060 Print System, you can
do one of the following:
▲

n
Add more printer memory, which automatically increases the Display List client’s memory settings.
n
Take any memory, if available and not being used by other clients,
and add it to the Administration/Memory/K Mem Display memory
setting.
Caution: This option should be used only by individuals who are
familiar with adjusting memory clients’ values. Incorrect use of
this option could cause your system to operate incorrectly.

Chaining Paper Inputbins
An option in the Operator Control menu allows you to “chain” inputbins (trays) so that when the first inputbin empties, the printer will
automatically draw paper from another inputbin with either the same
or any size and type of paper (dependent on the choice selected).
Menu

Choices
On—Switch to the next inputbin with the same size
and type of paper when the default inputbin is
empty.

Note: Make sure the three trays use the same
size paper.

inputbin.
On Any—Switch to the next inputbin with similar size
of paper when the default inputbin is empty.
Printer Configuration
4-25
Operator Control
Menu
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.
Setting Up Chaining Options
Options in the Operator Control menu allow you to configure whether
or not an inputbin will be available for chaining from another inputbin.

User’s Guide for more information on TCP/IP accounting.
As jobs are printed on your QMS printer, the system collects information about different job parameters in relation to the jobs. When each
job completes, the printer stores an entry for the job in the Job
Accounting file(s).
▲ Caution: Do not turn the printer off while the disk is being accessed.
Doing so may cause inconsistencies in the information stored.
Accounting Menu
The Accounting menu includes five submenus, allowing you to enable
or disable job accounting, allocate disk space when accounting is
enabled, reset accounting, store job accounting information in a single job file or in multiple files, and copy the accounting information.
Job accounting information may be stored in a single file if it can be
retrieved via FTP on your host. Otherwise, the selected job accounting file should be spread into several files.
Setting the Accounting Mode
The Accounting Mode option enables or disables job accounting.
Choices are Enabled or Disabled with a default of Disabled. In order
for the accounting process to run on your system, you must enable
accounting via the in control panel or via remote console. When
accounting is disabled any files containing data remain untouched.
However, empty files are removed to save disk space.
Allocating Disk Space
The Operator Control/Accounting/Disk Space option allocates disk
space for job accounting files. The range of values is 51200 (50 KB)
to 10240 (10 MB) with a default value of 01024 KB (1 MB).
4-30
QMS 4060 Print System Reference
Operator Control
Menu
The amount of space required for each job can vary between 200 and
250 bytes, so each 1 MB in the job accounting file will store information on 4,000 to 5,000 jobs.
If the selected value is greater than the current value, the file size is
increased to reserve the extra space. If the value is smaller than the
current file size, any empty job accounting files are moved. If only one
file is used and it is not empty, it cannot be shrunk.
Resetaccounting
The Resetaccounting option erases the Accounting files and recreates them using the current file size. If this operation is selected when
accounting is disabled, the files are removed but not recreated, thus
saving disk space. The range of values is Yes and No. The default
value is No.
This operation is also available as the resetaccount command for the
admin user at a remote console. See the Remote Console User’s Guide
documentation for more information on the resetaccount command.
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 copy these files to floppies or 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 are copied
to a floppy or to a host.
When the file is 100% full, the
xxx FILE IS FULL
message displays.

4-31

Menu
»
Note: 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.
Segmenting the Accounting Job File
The Job File Segment menu allows you to decide whether accounting
information is stored in the printer in a single file or in multiple files.
Choices are Single and Multiple, with Multiple as the default. Although
it is convenient to store accounting data in a single file, the multiple
file option is useful if you must transfer your files to your host via
floppy disk.
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
file names will be ACC1.JOB, ACC2.JOB, and so on.
Accounting Files

Note: You can also access these accounting files with the Windowsbased QMS Crown Printer Auditor (CPA) utility on the QMS Software

printer’s hard disk, in the SYS:/ADMIN directory:

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 File Format Description
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 4-35
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.
Conventions
The following conventions are the same for job, paper, and status
files:

n
Tag Identifiers
These three-digit numbers are used to identify fields. The threedigit 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.
n
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.
n
New Records
New records are separated by a <CR> character to increase
readability.
n
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.
Example
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.

The Maximum Number of Job Files 34: 1
field indicates the maximum
number of job files. For example,
even if your system is configured
for multiple files, if only 1 MB is
dedicated to accounting, the
maximum number of files is 1. If 5.5
MB is dedicated to accounting, the
maximum number of files is 6.
There can be
only 1 job
accounting file.
Although the
printer is
configured for
multiple files
(see field 37)
there is only one
because only 1
MB is dedicated
to accounting
35:
The Current Job File field indicates 35: 1
which file has been used most
recently. By comparing this with
Field 33, you can determine which
file is current and how much space
is left in it.
The most
recently used
file is File 1
36:
The Number of Jobs field indicates 36: 309
how many documents are
accounted for in the Job
Accounting file(s). A value of 0 can
mean that no jobs have been
printed or that accounting is
disabled.
Current Job
Accounting files
hold data on
309 jobs
37:
The Multifile field has a value of 1 if 37: 2
a single file is used and a value of 2
if multiple files are used to store job
information.
Job Accounting
is set for
multiple files

Copy Accounting Files to Host
Accounting files should be transferred to your host computer periodically to keep the printer from being overloaded with data and to allow
you easy analysis of data.
Using the QMS Crown Printer Auditor (CPA) Utility
You can access the accounting files with the Windows-based QMS
Crown Printer Auditor (CPA) utility on the QMS Software Utilities CDROM. Refer to the CPA on-line help for more information.
Using the File Transfer Protocol (FTP)
»
Note: FTP works only when the printer is off line and the message
window displays IDLE. Use the ls command in the SYS:/admin
directory to see which accounting files you are going to retrieve. The
ls command is issued from a remote console. If multiple Job
Accounting files are used, each of the ACCx.JOB files should be
copied. (x is the number of each subsequent Job Accounting file.)
Use File Transfer Protocol (FTP) on the host, if a TCP/IP connection
is available to the printer, to copy the files from the printer’s hard disk
to the host as follows:
4-44

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

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.

Memory
This submenu allows you to allocate the printer’s memory (RAM)
among the various memory clients. The flexibility of defining memory
available to clients allows experienced users to optimize the printer's
performance according to a given set of conditions.
This section briefly describes each of the memory submenus and the
memory clients. See chapter 5, “Additional Technical Information,” for
more detailed information on the printer’s memory and what benefits,
if any, may result from adding memory to each client.

and exit from the configuration menu.
When the sum of the Min K Spool for all interfaces is less than K Mem
for Spool, memory is allocated as follows:
4-80
1
Interfaces with Min K Spool (in the Administration/Communications menu) value greater than zero receive their specified allocation.
2
The remaining memory in K Mem for Spool is allocated to Shared
Spooling Space. This can be seen in the Communications Settings & Input Buffer Sizes area of the status page.
3
The Shared Spooling Space can be allocated to any of the communication interfaces if the input jobs require more spooling
space. The limit to this is the amount of Host Input (K Mem for
Spool) shown on the status page.

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.
»
Note: 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

n
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.
Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer memory client holds rasterized or bitmapped
images of page faces which are ready to be sent to the print engine. A
4-84
QMS 4060 Print System Reference

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 M.
Frame buffer memory should always be the first memory client that is
configured in the printer. After this, all other clients can be configured
depending on your printing needs. Anytime the frame buffer client is
changed, all of the other clients will be resized to their default values.
Frame buffer can be configured manually or by resetting the printer
defaults. In all cases, be sure to keep a copy of the status page as a
record of memory client settings. See chapter 5, “Additional Technical

System software release will automatically reorganize the files on the
hard disk when the printer is turned back on again. (The printer
release number is listed on both the start-up and the status page.)
Once this reorganization is done, the files on the hard disk can no
longer be accessed if the hard disk is reattached to an earlier QMS
Crown printer.
This reorganization process takes time. If, when you first turn the
printer on after attaching a previously used hard disk, it does not
come on line immediately, be patient. Interrupting the reorganization

Introduction
This chapter provides additional technical information on memory
management, end job mode, the PS Protocol option, and HP-GL
color-to-grayscale conversion.
Printer-Host Communication
Interface
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)
Simultaneous Interface Operation (SIO), a standard feature of QMS
Crown architecture, enables your QMS 4060 Print System to
communicate simultaneously with hosts through the parallel, optional
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.
ESP Technology
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,
5-2
QMS 4060 Print System Reference
Printer-Host
Communication
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 or HPGL commands for such items as page formats and job parameters
(number of copies, page margins, fonts).
The QMS 4060 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, optional serial, or other optional interface. Most users never have
to change from ESP mode to another mode.
Communication Modes
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 optional 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 and 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).

Halftones
Configuring the printer through the control panel is described in chapter 4, “Printer Configuration,” of this manual.
Halftones
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 4060 for halftone printing.
What are Halftones?
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 4060 Print System. The following factors can be used to adjust
the halftone characteristics of your documents.
n
Printer resolution
n
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.
Gray Levels
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.
5-4
QMS 4060 Print System Reference
Halftones
Screen Frequency
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.
n
gray levels = (resolution/screen frequency)2 + 1
You can change screen frequency by selecting the halftone type in
the QMS 4060 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.
Screen Angle
A screen angle is the angle at which a halftone screen prints. The
default screen angle for your QMS 4060 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.
Additional Technical Information
5-5
Halftones
Halftone Types
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.

Memory
Memory allows your printer to store and retrieve information that’s
required to perform 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 may add
more memory as necessary.
The memory is divided among users (or “clients”), each of which allocated a specific amount (or “block”) of memory. Each memory client is
dedicated to a specific printing and application purpose. Your QMS
4060 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:
n
To achieve maximum performance
n
To enable additional features
Additional Technical Information
5-7
Memory
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 where you feel it would best meet your
printing requirements.
QMS Memory Management
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.
Memory Terms
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 4060 Print System documentation uses the following memory terms:
5-8
QMS 4060 Print System Reference
Memory
Memory
Memory allows your printer to store and retrieve information. It’s the
space within your printer where information is stored while being
actively worked on.
Memory Client
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.
Excess Memory
Some printers designate one or two memory clients to receive all the
excess, or unassigned memory. On your QMS 4060 Print System
excess memory is distributed among all the memory clients.
Storage
Storage is a device in (or on) which information can be kept. There
are three main types of storage—ROM, RAM, and hard disk drives.
ROM stores read-only data, RAM represents temporary storage, and
hard disk drives hold information on a more permanent basis (see the
following definitions).
ROM (Read Only Memory)
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.
RAM (Random Access Memory)
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
Additional Technical Information
5-9
Memory
is distributed. Your printer comes with 32 MB of RAM, but it is upgradable to 128 MB by adding Single In-line Memory Modules (SIMMs).
RAM Disk
Also called a virtual disk, the RAM disk is an area of RAM that is used
to simulate an additional hard disk. Data 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.
SCSI (Small Computer System Interface)
The printer’s SCSI port allows you to connect up to three optional
SCSI hard disks and the optional CrownCopy scanner, 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.
IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics)
The standard 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.
Volatile Memory
This type of memory is cleared when the printer is turned off. For
example, most RAM is volatile.
Non-volatile Memory
This type of memory is not lost when the printer loses power.
NV RAM
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 settings, and input bins, are saved to
this non-volatile RAM. This information is not lost when you turn off
your printer.
5-10
QMS 4060 Print System Reference
Memory
Physical Memory
Physical memory refers to the amount of RAM installed in the printer.
Virtual Memory
Virtual memory extends the effective size of the printer’s memory 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.
Spool
Spooling is temporary storage to hold print jobs until the printer is
available to process them.
Evaluation of Your Printing Environment
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.
»
Note: With 32 MB standard memory on your QMS 4060, you should
have enough memory to support all paper sizes at the highest
resolution and duplexed.
Evaluation Questions
To get a better idea of what your printing requirements and your

Memory
Memory Clients
Memory clients are users of printer 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 4, “Printer
Configuration,” for each memory client’s minimum and default
settings.
Memory clients in the 4060 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:
n
When the printer is installed.
n
When new system software is installed.
n
When adding or removing hard disks.
n
When memory is upgraded.
n
When Frame Buffer is manually adjusted.
n
When restoring printer defaults.
Remember that 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. 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, resolution, and duplex printing. The other memory clients
are allocated memory from what is left over in physical memory.

Memory
Frame Buffer
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 page printed on letter size paper would consume frame buffer
memory space as follows: (600dpi x 600dpi x 8.5 in x 11 in) /8 =
4,207,500 bytes or 4.1 MB.
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 does 300x300 dpi.

Display List
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 4060 Print System takes approximately 64 KB of
memory from the display list for each compressed block. However, if a
page includes raster image data (for example, TIFF or 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 QMS 4060 Print System has a hard drive 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.
Additional Technical Information
5-15
Memory
PostScript Font Cache
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.
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 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 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:
n
128-256 KB for 300x300 dpi printing
n
256-512 KB for 600x600 dpi printing
You should experiment to see what font cache size works best for
you.
PS Heap
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
5-16
QMS 4060 Print System Reference
Memory
the print jobs are completed, leading to virtual memory errors. If not
enough memory is 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.
Emulation
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 to the emulation client may eliminate
the unloading and reloading of these emulations and, consequently,
increase throughput. If the disk swapping option is turned on then you
can increase the emulation memory client using this memory.
Also increase the emulation client if you’re printing complex nonPostScript jobs that may require more memory to process correctly.
Emulation Temporary
Also known as K Mem Emul Tmp and Emulation Temporary, 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
Additional Technical Information
5-17
Memory
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.
Spool Buffers
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. The internal 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.
Disk Cache
This memory client stores frequently used data in system memory
instead of continually storing and retrieving it from a hard disk. If 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. When one or more hard disks are installed and
formatted, disk cache is automatically allocated 256 KB.
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:
5-18
n
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.
n
Information being written to a hard disk can be held in the cache
temporarily until a more convenient time to be written to disk.
QMS 4060 Print System Reference
Memory
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.
The recommended amount of memory for the disk cache client for all
disk drives is as follows:
n
120 KB minimum
n
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 would be 180 KB, and for two 120 MB
hard disks it would be 240 KB.
MB Printer Mem
This field on the status page shows the size of the physical RAM
installed in the printer. When disk swapping is enabled (Administration/Memory/Enable Disk Swap), this field also gives the size of available virtual memory.
System 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.
Hard Disk Management
You can add up to three external SCSI hard disks to your QMS 4060
Print System. These hard disks serve as secondary storage places
for such items as downloaded fonts, emulations, and spooled data.

»
Note: See FAQ 7181 for a list of approved hard disks, their
manufacturers and part numbers, and the QMS products on which
they can be used. You can access QMS FAQs through the Internet at
http://www.qms.com/support/supportbase/ or through Q-FAX. (See
appendix A, “QMS Customer Support,” to find out how to access
Q-FAX documents).
FAQ numbers are subject to change, so yo may want to obtain a
directory of Q-FAX documents before requesting a specific document.
Virtual Memory Support
Your printer supports virtual memory capabilities for all of the memory
clients except Disk Cache and Frame Buffer when disk swapping is
enabled (Administration/Memory/Enable Disk Swap menu). These
capabilities extend the amount of memory available for certain supported features, such as spooling and collation.
End Job Mode
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 4060 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 proper emulation of successive print
jobs, the printer must be able to identify the end of job for each job.
5-20
QMS 4060 Print System Reference
End Job Mode
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 4, “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 the QMS 4060 printer was designed to allow you to
set the end of document for print jobs being sent through these protocols.
Common Reasons to Use End Job Mode
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:
n
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.
n
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.)
n
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.)
n
You want to print multiple jobs with header pages.
n
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
Additional Technical Information
5-21
End Job Mode
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 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.
Using the EOD Commands
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 two end-of-document commands: QMS EOD and HP EOD.
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.
Setting the End Job Mode for the Serial and
Parallel Protocols
Your printer can be connected through the optional serial or standard
parallel interface to a stand-alone PC, to a PC print server, or to some
other type of print queuing system. This section provides a quick

each step.

you experience what appears to be an EOD command problem, you
may need to use another procedure, such as a print utility, an initialization sequence, or a header page to add an EOD command. See
your print queuing system documentation, your network administrator, or your QMS vendor for more information.

Creating a Network Job Separator
If your printer is connected to a network through a PC and the PC 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 the QMS
Crown Network Notes on the QMS Software Utilities CD-ROM for
more information on how to create a network job separator for several
commonly used networks.

Interface Modes
Parallel Interface Modes
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.
Byte Mode
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:
n
Terminate and return to the compatibility mode.
n
Stay in the Host Busy, Data Not Available phase.
n
Set Host Busy Low, putting the interface into the idle phase.
If there is additional data, the host may do one of the following:
n
Set Host Busy Low, indicating that the host can accept additional
data.
n
Stay in the Host Busy, Data Not Available phase.
n
Terminate and return to the compatibility mode.
Check your host documentation to see if the host is IEEE 1284 compatible.
Compatibility Mode
Printer-host communication is done in a manner that ensures compatibility.
Additional Technical Information
5-27
PS Protocol
Option
ECP (Enhanced Compatibility Port) Mode
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.
EPP (Enhanced Parallel Port) Mode
Printer-host communication is done via asynchronous bidirectional
eight-bit transfer. A return to compatibility mode is not required.
Nibble Mode
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.
PS Protocol Option
Your QMS 4060 Print System supports PS Protocol, a new 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.

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.
For more information on BCP and quoting, see the PostScript Language Reference Manual (Adobe Systems, Inc., Reading, MA: Addison-Wesley, 1990, ISBN 0-201-18127-4), the “Adobe Serial and

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.
Advantages
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.
Implementation
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. Contact QMS for any available information on device drivers or binary filter programs.

HP-GL Color
Encoding
HP-GL Color Encoding
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 a pen color are selected to draw images. This
emulation supports 8 pens and pen colors.
Since your QMS 4060 Print System is a monochrome (black and
white) printer, the pen colors are converted to shades of gray. The
default color mappings for the 8 pens are as follows:
»
Pen
Pen Color
Level of Gray
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
Black
Black
Red
Green
Blue
Violet
Orange
Brown
100%
100%
70%
41%
89%
59%
25.8%
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.

Sources of Support
Several sources of help and information are available, depending on
the type of help you need:
Your QMS Vendor
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.
Your Application Vendor
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
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.

Notes to the Table
n
Direction refers to the direction of signal flow as viewed from the
printer.
n
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.
n
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.
n
Data transfer must be carried out by recognizing the ACKNLG or
BUSY signal.
n
The cable must have an overall braided shield, Belden 8345 or
equivalent.
n
Connectors must have shielded housings. The overall shield must
be bonded to the shielded housings at both ends of the cable.

Warranty
Considerations
Warranty Considerations
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
Response Center (CRC) telephone number where you can obtain an
RMA number.
Consumables and Your Warranty
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.
Electrostatic Discharge and Your Warranty
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,
B-20
QMS 4060 Print System Reference
Warranty
Considerations
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 components 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.
