Powering on the system in local-controlled mode

Attention: You can switch power on for the complete system for duplex or for dual simplex mode. Or you can switch power on for only one printer and its associated control unit in dual simplex mode when one of the two system printers cannot be used and needs repair. In either mode, and with the use of either printer, you must switch the Printer 2 control unit power on.

Procedures:

For duplex systems: When the system master power control is to be controlled locally, set the Local/Remote switches as shown in the following table for the various combination of elements you want to power on.

Table 8. Local system power control - duplex models

For dual simplex systems: When the system master power is to be controlled locally, set the Local/Remote switches to Local.

Do this procedure to power on the system in local-controlled mode.

  1. Ensure that both printers are connected to a three-phase electrical outlet that is reserved for the printers.
  2. Press the Printer 2 control unit Control Unit Power On switch for any of the combinations of elements listed above.
  3. Respond to any error or intervention messages that appear on the touch panel during the power-on sequence. At the completion of the power-on sequence the touch panel displays the status of the printer.
  4. Check the tension arm. See Checking the tension arm.
  5. Load forms if necessary.
  6. If you are printing in Duplex mode, align the forms. See Aligning tractored forms or Aligning tractorless forms.
