Duplex Models

A power control panel on both the printer utility module (PUM) frame on Printer 1 and the Advanced Function Common Control Unit (AFCCU) frame on Printer 2 is used to select either remote or local power control for each printer in the configuration and the control unit independently.

When either a printer frame, the AFCCU frame, or the PUM frame Local/Remote switch is set to Local, power for that element is controlled by power switches on the same power control panel as the Local/Remote switch. When a Local/Remote switch is set to Remote, power for the AFCCU is controlled from the controlling computer system, and power for either printer or the PUM is controlled from the AFCCU.

Each power control panel also contains a system Unit Emergency switch that drops power to all elements controlled by that panel.
