Using the printer stacker with a postprocessor

This procedure applies only to InfoPrint Models MS1, HS2, MD1/2, and HD3/4 with the internal stacker feature installed.

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 Postprocessing Options panel (Printer DefinitionPre/Postprocessing -> Postprocessing Options 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.

When the internal stacker is enabled on HS2 or HD3/4 printers, the printer speed must be set to low speed. 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 (if installed) in Printer 1 is always disabled as if a postprocessing device were installed and enabled.

Attention: Printing to the internal stacker is not supported in duplex mode.
