Controlling the System Power

The following figure shows a Power Control Panel.

This is an image that illustrates a Power Control Panel.

Printer 1 in a duplex or dual simplex printing system has two sets of power controls. One is for the Printer Utility Module (PUM) frame, which is labeled Control Unit on the Power Control Panel. The other is for the printer that is attached to the PUM frame.

Printer 2 in a duplex system and a simplex-only printer also has two sets of power controls. One is for the Advanced Function Common Control Unit (AFCCU) frame, which is labeled Control Unit on the Power Control Panel. The other is for the printer that is attached to the AFCCU frame. Each element in the system (Printer 1 frame, Printer 2 frame, the AFCCU frame, and the PUM frame) has the following:

These switches allow many combinations of Local/Remote power control and power on/off control. Each Power Control Panel in the system also contains a Unit Emergency switch.

Attention!

The Unit Emergency switch lets you turn off all power to the system in the case of an emergency.

Do not use the Unit Emergency Power Off switch to power off the system unless you have an emergency. Doing so can cause loss of data and hardware problems in the AFCCU.
