Powering Off the System

For duplex systems operating in duplex mode and for simplex systems, you must switch power off to the complete system whenever you want to switch power off to any single element. However, for duplex systems operating in dual simplex mode, you do not have to switch power off to the complete system to power off any single element.

In Host-Controlled Remote Mode

  1. On the Display/Touch Screen, from the Operate pull-down menu SELECT the Shutdown/Restart procedure.
  2. On the Shutdown/Restart window, SELECT the Shutdown push-button.

    (In dual simplex mode, on the Shutdown/Restart window SELECT the Shutdown push-button, for the other printer if desired.)

    Wait for a Shutdown Complete message to appear on the Display/Touch Screen. (In dual simplex mode, this message appears only if both printers are shutdown.)

  3. Inform the host system console operator that you want to switch power off to the system.
  4. The host console operator will inform you when both printers have been switched offline at the host.
  5. The host system console operator switches power off to the system remotely.

In Local-Controlled Mode

  1. On the Display/Touch Screen from the Operate pull-down menu, SELECT the Shutdown/Restart procedure.
  2. On the Shutdown/Restart window, SELECT the Shutdown push-button.

    (In dual simplex mode on the Shutdown/Restart window, SELECT the Shutdown push-button for the other printer if desired.)

    Wait for a Shutdown Complete message to appear on the Display/Touch Screen. (In dual simplex mode, this message appears only if both printers are shutdown.)

  3. Press the AFCCU Power Off if in Local switch for any combination of powered-on elements.

Emergency Power Off

In case of an emergency, you can set the Unit Emergency to Power Off to remove all power from the frame (PUM or AFCCU) in which the switch is installed and from the attached printer engine. This action on one of the system printers does not effect power on the other printer in the system, but causes the other printer to be functionally inoperable.

Attention!

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