Using the printer stacker with a postprocessor

If a postprocessing device is disabled or not yet configured, you may continue to use boxed forms and the printer stacker. If the postprocessing device includes any rollers, sensors, or any other hardware that would interfere with the operation of the stacker, you must remove those interferences before you attempt to use the stacker.

If the "Use internal stacker" configuration item on the Printer Definition -> Pre/Postprocessing panel is set to Yes and there are no postprocessing devices installed and enabled on the printer, the stacker table automatically rises when printing begins. To raise the stacker table manually, press the table UP switch on the stacker control panel.

The internal stacker on the Infoprint 4100 Models HS2 and HD3/4 can only be used when the printer is set to low speed. The internal stacker is available only at slower speed in simplex or dual simplex modes. Refer to Switching printer speeds for instructions on changing the printer speed.

If a postprocessing device is installed on a printer and is enabled, the stacker table is lowered and is prevented from moving upward. The pendulum and other devices in the stacker are also prevented from operating.

In duplex mode, the stacker in Printer 1 is always disabled as if a postprocessing device were installed and enabled.
