Toolbox - User Interface
|Mid-Job Servicing – Sets frequency (number of pages printed) before automatic Printhead maintenance occurs. In this example, maintenance will run after every 50 pages printed. Common range is between 50 and 250 pieces. NOTE: Higher values will increase productivity (less pausing for maintenance), but may also increase print quality issues. Experiment to find an acceptable selection for your application/environment.|
KWS Setting – (Keep Wet Spitting) Use to help keep all Printhead nozzles hydrated while running a job. This is done by firing all nozzles (dots), in a preset pattern/density, based on selection. None (turns off KWS), Light (low density of KWS dots), Medium (default; medium density of KWS dots), Heavy (highest density of KWS dots). NOTE: Setting this feature to “None” will eliminate KWS dots being printed on media, but may increase nozzle dehydration issues (nozzles that intermittently stop firing).
|Idle Timeout (min) – Sets how often “Idle Maintenance” will run when Printer is “Idle” (not being used). Commonly set to 360 minutes (6 hours) but can be adjusted as needed. NOTE: Idle Maintenance is performed to help keep the Printhead and ink system in good working order; for the next time printer is used.|
Wipe Transfer Frequency – Sets how often a “Wiper Transfer” (removal of excess ink from Service Station’s Wiper Roller) will be performed, in relation to when Mid-Job Servicing (MJS) is performed. Common range is between 1 and 3. 1= after every time MJS is performed. 3= after every third time MJS is performed. NOTE: Setting a value of 1 in conjunction with a low MJS value (50 pages), when running short media, may cause “wiper overtemp” issues (wiper motor getting too hot because it is used too frequently). If you experience this issue, try setting Wiper Transfer Frequency value to 3. Experiment to find an acceptable selection for your application/environment.
