I have been nagging Xerox about getting the 660mm length here in the US, and they keep saying they will look into it. What country are you in?You submit your job as normal through the fiery. Max stock weight is 220gsm but withe a few tweaks to transfer settings/fuser temp etc..we can run all weight no problem.
You can't do an alignment profile on the larger size but use the settings for the stock based on SRA3 and all good. Just ran 300 banner sheets on 250gsm, manual duplex and registration is bang on. These machines are great...image quality and speed much better than our 1000 and the longer sheet size is more valuable to us than clear or metalic.
DYP - I am in the USA. I've got an EX 80 running v1.2 SP1. If I purchase and install the software mentioned above ( http://electrical-components.com/xerox/497n04587.html), are you confident I'll have the ability to run an XL sheet? Or will I also need a firmware upgrade (discussed above)? Is this firmware upgrade to the Fiery or the Versant?You need to understand this XLS option is only for the Fiery.
Before you install the XLS option, be sure that the EX/EX-i Print Server is running Version 1.2 or later system software.
The XLS option is installed through the System Updates feature of the EX/EX-i Print Server. If System Updates is configured to automatically download and install updates, you can skip this step. Otherwise, you must install all available system software updates.
Sheets greater than 488mm can be printed single sided (simplex) only. Auto-duplex is not possible.
Print speed of 660mm sheets is up to 9ppm.
Media range is 52-220gsm for uncoated media, and 72-220gsm for coated media.
To use the Stock Library Manager with the XLS option, you must use v8.007 or later and Versant 2100 system is running 100.30.81 or later.
Although the autonomous car is not quite ready, a lights out print operation is something you can do right now if you have a comprehensive Print MIS (Management Information System). The advantages can put money on your bottom line. So what’s your next step? Link to Article
