Duplex Models

A power control panel on the control unit on Printer 1 or on Printer 2 is used to select either remote or local power control for each printer in the configuration and the control unit independently.

When the Local/Remote switch is set to Local, power for that control unit is controlled by power switches on the same power control panel as the Local/Remote switch. When a Local/Remote switch is set to Remote, power for the control unit on Printer 2 is controlled from the controlling computer system, and power for either printer or the control unit on Printer 1 is controlled from the control unit on Printer 2.

Each power control panel also contains a system Unit Emergency switch that drops power to all elements controlled by that panel.
