• The Settings menu contains the configuration settings for the system.
    • Tap [Localisation] if you want to change the document standard or the language.

      When you need a keyboard to enter e.g. a job name, you get a special keyboard in case of Russian, Czech and Katakana. But the keyboard has always a button to switch back to the English keyboard. 

    • Tap [Date/time] to set the:

      • Date
      • Time
      • Date format; you can choose between three format to show the date: dd-mm-yyyy, mm-dd-yyyy or yyyy-mm-dd
      • Time format; you can choose between a '12 hours' notation or a '24 hours' notation
    • Tap [Production settings] to define when envelopes should be cleared from the system.

      • Envelopes clearing after job selection: this setting defines if the envelopes should be cleared when you select a job. 'Ask' means that the system asks if you want to clear the envelopes.
      • Envelopes clearing after job edit: this setting defines if the envelopes should be cleared when you have edited a job. 'Ask' means that the system asks if you want to clear the envelopes.
    • Attention

      Job settings normally will be changed by a service engineer only. Therefore first consult the service organization before you change any settings. Changes to the job settings can result in malfunctioning of jobs.

    • Note

      You can also define the job settings per job. Select a job from the Job list, tap Edit, navigate to the Exit settings, and tap Advanced

    • The Job settings part of the Settings menu covers settings that improve the processing of jobs: 

      • Flap closer offset: to improve the sealing of specific envelopes you can delay or advance the moment of sealing. You enter the number of pulses. A minus value means the sealing is advanced, a plus value means the sealing is delayed. You can enter a number between -20 and 20.
      • System output: mode 1 mode 2
        Mode 1 focuses on the versatility of paper parameters (paper thickness; document length), i.e. correct operation under even extreme paper conditions. Mode 2 is the default mode, and focuses on high speed. Use Mode 1 with a paper thickness of 65 g/m2 or less, a document length of 12 inch (305 mm) or higher, and for situations where Mode 2 is not functioning properly. In all other cases use Mode 2.
      • BRE with window: if the BRE has a window, set this setting to yes. Only available with Mode 2. 
      • Document offset (A in the figure): the extend to which documents are not overlapping in the vertical transport. In the vertical transport of documents fed by the various feeders, the documents are partially overlapping each other. This to make sure that the documents are properly aligned in the collator area. The default value is 50 mm (2.0 inch). The document offset can be varied between 20 mm (0.8 inch) and 250 mm (9.8 inch).


      • BRE offset: in the case of offset is “yes”, the last document that was added to the set is shifted from the rest of the set (offsetting, see below).
      • Collator stop optimisation: if set to "off", the system does not show a message, when a collator stop change can improve the system output. 

      Explanation of BRE offset: if a BRE is longer than the set fold but shorter than the envelope height, this BRE can get folded (A in the figure). Under certain conditions (see below) you can prevent the BRE from being folded. In the case of offset “yes”, the BRE is held back during a certain distance (B in the figure). This means that the trailing edge of the BRE leaves the collator last. The document is not folded. During the insertion into the envelope the documents of the set are aligned. 

      The conditions are:

      • No multi-feed is used for the BREs.
      • The document directly under the BRE must have a height of at least 60 mm (2.4 inch) more than the BRE.
      • The height of the BRE is more than the set fold length.
      • The folding mode is either V-fold or C-fold (no Z-fold).
      • The BRE must be shorter than the envelope height.

      The whole BRE offset is based on friction between documents within a set. Therefore it is necessary to make use of these conditions to reduce the risk of bad transporting, folding and inserting.

    • Note

      It is possible to use the BRE offset for a BRE and an enclosure (card) in one set. The extra condition is that this enclosure is equal to or smaller than the set address fold and should be placed direct underneath the BRE in the set.
