Powering off the system

For systems operating in duplex mode, you must switch power off to the complete system whenever you want to switch power off to any single element. However, for 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 touchscreen, select Shutdown.
  2. Select Shutdown.

    (In dual simplex mode, select Shutdown for the other printer if desired.)

    Wait for a Shutting down... message to appear on the touchscreen. (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.

    The host console operator will inform you when both printers have been switched offline at the host.

  4. The host system console operator switches power off to the system remotely.

In local controlled mode

  1. On the touchscreen, select Shutdown.
  2. Select Shutdown.

    (In dual simplex mode, select Shutdown for the other printer if desired.)

    Wait for a Shutting down... message to appear on the touchscreen. (In dual simplex mode, this message appears only if both printers are shutdown.)

  3. Press the Printer 2 control unit 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 (Printer 1 control unit or Printer 2 control unit) in which the switch is installed and from the attached printer engine. This action on one of the system printers has no effect on the power of the other printer in the system. However, you cannot operate the other printer.

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 Printer 2 control unit.
