The P is ideal for applications requiring production of full-color plastic cards. Printing personalized plastic cards has never been simpler, faster, or easier. Use P Card Printers to print:. The P prints sharp, readable bar codes, ID photos, graphics and text, edge-to-edge, in seconds. That means you can issue personalized cards on the spot.

Page Options Encoders can place data on either high- or low-coercivity stripes. With reference to the Card Loading, P Printers can be configured for either up- or down-facing magnetic stripes.

Page Cleaning Roller adjust the feeder for other thicknesses as well. This added weight increases the grip of the card feed rollers and assures reliable card feeds throughout cartridge-full to cartridge-empty conditions. Page Magnetic Stripe Encoder Option 1. With this in mind, service personal should focus on items listed in their recommended spares list.

Avoid lower level replacements whenever possible. Eltron offers product training to those wishing to service this equipment. Page Packaging Considerations Electrostatic Discharge bag and suspended in form-fitting end cushions made from a foam material. These are the only materials approved for P shipments. Any shipping damage may not be covered by either the product warranty or the carrier if the printer is shipped with packaging materials that do not meet associated shipping standards.

The intent here is to make this manual as complete as possible with a minimum of references to other manuals.

Note that customers should keep these materials on hand for future shipping needs. The product warranty may not cover a printer damaged during a shipment if the printer is packaged using unapproved shipping materials. Page Tape And Packing Removals 2.

Until ready for use, keep ribbon and card media in their cartons. Select a location that offers easy access to all sides plus an unrestricted air flow.

Page Figure Page Operation Printer. The Power Switch resides on the rear. Users press the Printer Button to reinitialize P printers. Users also press this button to signal when a user intervention has corrected an Alert condition that has suspended operations. Users open the Cover and raise the Print Head during manual Cleaning Procedures, removal of card jams, and ribbon loads.

Page Ribbon Loading 2. Step 1. Remove the ribbon from its packaging and the material holding the supply and take up rolls together. Set the Card Gate Thickness Lever to match the thickness of the cards. Note that lever positions closer to the back of the printer open the Card Feed Gate for thicker cards.

Page Loading Card Input Hopper 2. Press down on Release Tab, and rotate Hopper to open position. Step 2. Place cards in Hopper with printed side facing right facing up with hopper closed. Until performed, normal operations cannot continue. While the flashing occurs at card count intervals determined by a printer command see Programmer's Manual , users can initiate a Cleaning Cycle at any time.

This means they contain no white as in pastels or black contrast reduction components. A so-called trained observer can discern about fully saturated shades. When these colors are diluted by black, the number of discernable shades diminishes.

Color Monitors produce their range of colors using a red, green, and blue RGB three-dot matrix. The need for high dot density decreases as the viewing distance increases. For example, a large roadside sign may require separations screened at only four lines-per-inch. Such a sign would appear like a mosaic of CMYK dots if viewed from too close a distance.

Page 33 color of the print media. In monitors, maximum intensities maximum additions result in white, and minimum intensities produce black. Because light reflected from print media depends on ambient lighting, users may get darker images from a printer than they see on their monitor, where a brightness setting exists. Moreover, devices with a brightness control allow a wide range of image intensities.

Active Matrix Displays generate images from a back-lighted grid that activates red, green, and blue LCD pixel elements. For paper, and other print media, gloss affects brightness, and Black Body Temperature affects hue. Card media shuttles back and forth across the print head during this process. The ribbon feeds between the image head and the card media and during printing advances from its supply to its take-up reels in step with an advancing Card.

The lower part identifies the sensors that detect the various events that occur during card printing. Card Path Elements. Printer Module Block Diagram. After a reset, which occurs at initialization, the processor places 32 bits of image data on the data bus. Print Head Circuitry. This data determines the operation of U This circuitry allows the Micro Controller to monitor all the operational status of the basic printer.

Status Circuitry. Note that a Serial Host Port is optional. When used, the Micro Controller supplies the Serial Port data signals. Serial and Parallel Port Circuitry. This circuitry resides on a separate board that attaches to the same connector that the Magnetic Stripe Encoder Connector can use. For configurations that have both the USB Board and a Magnetic Stripe Encoder, this board supplies a connector J1 that carries through the connector signals.

The Encoder Board is a purchased part that Eltron Card neither designs nor assembles. Smart Card Circuitry.

The Micro Controller supplies or receives the signal shown. Operator Panel Circuitry 3. In this phase, servicing personnel may attempt to duplicate the problem and then use various means to test for a malfunction or improper system setup.

Two tables follow that offer associated details and section references. Page Chapter 5 Replacement Procedures Eltron Card Printer Products encourages servicing personal to report these and any other problems in support of continuous product improvement, publication of Tech Notes, and revision of this manual. For servicing beyond the scope of this and the other P Printer publications, Eltron Card Printer Products offers factory repair and Technical Support assistance as options.
