Introduction
The Matrix Printers have been developed for professional applications in all
environments. They meet the highest possible technical standards, and with proper
use, they should provide many years of trouble-free operation.
High-performance print qualities as well as operation with fanfold paper and cut
sheets from front can be chosen.
The following print qualities are available:
High Speed Draft Print Quality (HSQ)
Copy Draft Print Quality (DPQ Copy)
Draft Print Quality (DPQ)
Near Letter Quality (NLQ)
Letter Quality (LQ)
For details see chapter Specifictions.
The electronic part controlled by a microcomputer operates the needle printhead,
menu programming, and interface.
All elements of the printer control are arranged on printed circuit boards so that only
a few additional components are required such as
step motor for function select,
step motor for color option,
step motor for paper feed,
DC motor for carriage feed,
step motor for automatic gap adjust
The following options and features will further enhance the printer’s capabilities:
3rd tractor from rear
push tractor front
front cut sheet insertion
automatic gap adjustment
sheet feeder with two paper bins
face down module for cut sheet feeder
fonts
automatic gap adjustment
multi-color ribbon
2nd push tractor front

General
3.1.1
Printhead

The printhead is rated to more than 300.000 standard pages. The printer is
economical too: 12.000 standard letters are printed with one ribbon.
With our own word-wide patented 24 needle technology the printer also in speed
reaches the top region of its class, with its noise level being in the lower range. The
printer practically operates in conjunction with all known computer systems and
standard software.

3.1.2
Power Supply

3.1.3
Ribbon

The power supply may be switched by the user externally from 120 V to 230 V. A
fuse (T4,00AH250V, UL) is provided to protect the power supply from hazardous
damages. It can be replaced without opening the printer.

The quality of the printout is dependent on the quality of the ribbon. Therefore the
ribbon as well as the printhead are very important parts of your printer.
A used ribbon cannot deliver a satisfactory printout. To achive a long life duration for
the ribbon always use it in its full width. This will be achived by moving the ribbon up
and down during printing and rotating the ribbon in the infinite end ribbon cassette.
The ribbon is therefore satisfactory used and reaches a long life time.
With a color printer you must decide if a color ribbon for a color printout or a monochrome ribbon for a one color printout is to be used.
In the first case the color ribbon, which can have up to four tracks, is vertically moved
in four steps in relation to the printhead, depending on the selected color.
If you want to achive a monochrome printout with a color printer, you should use a
monochrom ribbon and set the parameter “black” in the Setup menu “Color Opt.”.
The firmware moves the color ribbon, simular to a standard printer, in four vertical
levels. Because of this electrical control the monochrom ribbon is optimally used by a
color printer.

3.1.4
Data Transfer

Functional Description

The main difference between the serial and parallel interface is the form in which the
data bytes are transfered. The serial interface transfers bits in a row, one after the
other. Theoretically you only need three connections for this form of data transfer. In
the parallel interface the data transfer of the 8 bits (1 byte) is completed
simultaneously through 8 parallel connections. At least 11 connections between the
computer and the printer are necessary for this procedure.
With the parallel Centronics interface data up to 100.000 bytes /seconds theoretically
can be transfered. Actual the printer opperates with a maximum transfer frequency of
approx. 30.000 bytes/second. This “Data Flow”, depending on the adjustment of the
input buffer (0-128 KB) on your printer, can be temporarily stored.

3.1.5
Monitoring

The most important functions are monitored with sensors, microswitches and
electrical monitoring circuits. These are constantly checked, processed by an internal
logic and indicated on the display.
To prevent an overheating of the printhead, 12 coils of the 24 electromagnets are
monitored. If the temperature reaches a value above 130 °C the speed of the printer
is automatically slowed down. As soon as the printhead has cooled the printer works
with high speed again.
If a coil becomes defective, this is recognized by the firmware and shown on the
display (Head defect, THS Error, Head Hot permanently).
For safety reasons the top cover is also monitored. If you should open the top cover
during printing operation, then the printout is momentary stopped (to avoid injuries).
When you close the cover again the printout is continued without loss of data.

Head/Platen
Clearance

The worm gear (see principle drawing) determine the basic head distance. You can
imagine the worm gear as a mechanical memory. During initialisation (power up) of
the printer the head distance stepper moves the toothed segment on block at the
worm gear. Now the printer has its basic point and can count the steps forward which
are stored in the firmware. The stepper tolerance is within one bit pattern (equals 4
steps).
