3C Accuracy Calibration

By performing the accuracy calibration procedures the plotter can be restored to its factory settings accuracy, or it can be calibrated to allow for the current environment. Accuracy calibrations are stored in the plotter EEROM. When performing the accuracy calibration from the Service Test submenu, the factory correction values are recalculated. The calibration performed from the Utilities menu calculates a new user calibration test. This value overrides the factory value until the plotter is...

Print Quality Diagnostic Plots

Inkjet Misdirect Printing

CAD 2-D Monochrome Plot Service Test 13 t page 8-33 Objectives The main objectives of this plot represented below is to check the vertical-line straightness of monochrome lines. The plot can be done in a unidirectional or bi-directional mode, so you can distinguish the theta-Z error from the bi-directional one. The second objective is to check performance of the cartridge. The plot includes an area fill, and a number of parallel lines that show up directional problems. There is also a nozzle...
