Creating inserter controllers

If Ricoh ProcessDirector does not supply an inserter controller object for your inserter controllers, you can create one.
To create an inserter controller:
  1. Click the Administration tab.
  2. Click Devices → Inserter Controllers.
  3. Click Actions → Add.
  4. Click Add (Image).
  5. On all the tabs, fill in the required properties and any optional properties.

    • If the inserter controller is file-based (that is, the inserter controller uses control files), specify the properties on the Control File tab. If the inserter controller uses two control files for each job, also specify the properties on the Second Control File tab.
    • If the inserter controller is not file-based, clear the default values in the properties on the Control File tab.
    • If the inserter controller writes results files:
      • Specify the properties on the Results File tab.
      • If the inserter results files are job-specific, specify a Receive command on the Results File tab.
      • If the inserter results files are not job-specific (such as Gunther results files), specify a Polling command on the Results File tab. Also, in the Completion method property on the General tab, select Manual because Ricoh ProcessDirector cannot automatically determine when a job has finished insertion.
      • Specify the rules files on the Results File tab.
    • If the results file for a job identifies only the documents that need to be reprinted:
      • In the Default insert status property on the General tab, select OK because documents that are not identified in the results file do not need to be reprinted.
    • If the inserter controller does not write results files:
      • Clear the default values in the properties on the Results File tab.
      • In the Completion method property on the General tab, select Manual because Ricoh ProcessDirector cannot automatically determine when a job has finished insertion.
      • In the Default insert status property on the General tab, select OK so that on the Reconcile Job page, the operator needs to mark only the documents that need to be reprinted.
  6. Click OK.
  7. To use the new inserter controller, select it and click Enable.
