This machine can be used as a printer by mounting an optional Image Controller on the machine.
A print can be made on this machine from the application software installed on your computer via the printer driver.
In this document, it is assumed to use the Image Controller IC-604. For details about the Image Controller IC-313, Image Controller IC-314, or Image Controller IC-315, refer to the manual supplied with the Image Controller IC-313, Image Controller IC-314, or Image Controller IC-315.
The major printing flow is as follows.
Print data sent from an application is received by the printer driver.
The data is sent to the image controller via the USB interface for USB connection or via Ethernet (TCP/IP, etc.) for network connection. Then the data is passed from the image controller to this machine.
The image controller rasterizes images (expands output target characters and images to bitmap data).
This data is printed from this machine.
While this machine is operating as a printer, originals can be scanned using the copy function or network scan function. To use the copy function of this machine, press the Copy on the touch panel.
When a print job is received during copying, the data is stored in the memory of this machine. When the copying is completed, the print job is automatically printed.
