How To use the Postscript output client FEED commands with Output Manager

Product Feature: Output Client

Operating System: Windows

Profile command: PS_FEED_<feed name>
This is used to specify the groupings for the input paper bins on a Postscript printer.
The <feed name> is the Input Bin value or name as reported in the Page Details Statistics when viewing a job using the Output Manager Viewer

The permitted values are:

<bin> Number(s) of bin(s)
<paper size> The size of the paper in points, the two lengths being separated by a space
<weight> The paper weight in gsm, separated from the size by a space
<color> The paper color name, separated from the weight by a space
<type> The paper type, for example, Plain, separated from the color by a space

This command requires the PPD to be set correctly.

The internal defaults MAIN=1 and AUX=2 are used for Xerox if this command is omitted. There are no defaults for other devices.
Should the appropriate information be absent or invalid during processing, Output Manager will present a pop‐up requesting the correct details.

PSIN_MEDIA_DETAILS_IN_FEEDNAMES=YES can be used to pass media attributes through from PostScript input to PostScript output without requiring the use of PS_FEED_<feedname>.

Default: None
PS_FEED_1=1 or
PS_FEED_2=595 842 80 White Plain

Thank you Anna Anna Hobbs Technical Support Manager Software Support T +44 1923 279300 M +44 7940 734736 Pitney Bowes 6 Hercules Way, Leavesden Park Watford, WD25 7GS From: David Bowering [] Sent: 08 September 2015 15:23 To: Anna Hobbs Subject: Emtex v8.8 Hi Anna, Wonder if you can help ? I work for EFI in the UK Fiery Division and was hoping you can assist me and your customer into connecting Emtex v8.8 and a Fiery RIP running KM & Ricoh device's. I have been provided a Postscript file from Emtex which is being sent to a Xerox iGen, which have XRX references in. Therefore, can you confirm that you can connect to a Fiery and use postscript XJX (see enclosed command list), so you can select media and tray’s ? Do you use Postscript SetPageDevice ?
