Components

  • input-tray

    Specifies which input tray this value defines.

    • GUI label

      Input tray

    • Type

      Single-valued

    • Allowed Values

      You can enter any name you want, for example:

      • alternate
      • bottom
      • envelope
        Note: For PSF command-attached and PSF other-driver-attached printers, the string envelope must be included in the name.
      • insert
        Note: The insert input tray is on the finisher, not the printer device itself. This means that you cannot print inserts with the rest of the job. If you want printed inserts, preprint them and load the printed sheets into the insert input tray.
      • large-capacity
      • main
      • manual
        Note: For PSF command-attached and PSF other-driver-attached printers, the string manual must be included in the name.
      • side
      • top

    • Default Value

      The first value in the InfoPrint Manager GUI for input tray.

  • media-loaded

    Specifies the medium that is now in the input tray. InfoPrint adds the value you specify for this component automatically to the media-ready actual destination attribute.

    • GUI label

      Media ready

    • Type

      Single-valued

    • Allowed Values

      The value you specify does not have to match one of the values specified by the medium-identifier medium attributes. However, it must be one of the values specified by the media-supported attribute for this actual destination.

      For PSF-other and PSF-command DSSs, these types of media is supported:

      • a3
      • iso-a3-colored
      • iso-a3-white
      • a4
      • iso-a4-colored
      • iso-a4-transparent
      • iso-a4-white
      • a5
      • iso-a5–colored
      • iso-a5-white
      • a6
      • iso-a6-white
      • jis-b4
      • jis-b4-colored
      • jis-b4-white
      • b5
      • iso-b5-colored
      • iso-b5-envelope
      • iso-b5-white
      • jis-b5
      • jis-b5-colored
      • jis-b5-white
      • jis-b6
      • jis-b6-white
      • executive
      • legal
      • na-legal-colored
      • na-legal-white
      • letter
      • na-letter-colored
      • na-letter-transparent
      • na-letter-white
      • na-number-9-envelope
      • iso-c5-envelope
      • iso-designated-long-envelope
      • na-number-10-envelope
      • monarch-envelope
      • folio
      • 8x13
      • invoice
      • tabloid
      • jpost
      • jpostd
      • hagaki
      • env-b5

    • Default Value

      The default value for PSF command-attached and other-driver attached actual destinations is letter. For other actual destinations, there is no default value.

    • Usage Guidelines

      If you want to change the value of this component, make sure you add the value to the media-supported attribute first.

  • job-bin-number

    Specifies a bin number that the data stream can specify to select this input tray.

    • GUI label

      Bin number

    • Type

      Single-valued

    • Allowed Values

      You can enter an integer from 1 to 255.

    • Default Value

      If SNMP communication is active, InfoPrint queries the printer device and sets the values according to the response; otherwise, the default value for PSF command-attached and other-driver attached actual destinations is 3. For other actual destinations, there is no default value.

    • Usage Guidelines
      • Each AFP printer device model has its own configuration of paper input trays, known as bins, each with a specific number. This component maps the value specified for the input tray and loaded media to a bin number that InfoPrint understands and uses. Some values have special meanings:

        Input tray names, job bin numbers, and tray numbers on AFP printer devices

        Input Tray Name Job Bin Number Tray Number
        envelope 65 6
        manual 100 2
      • For PSF-other and PSF command-attached actual destinations, job-bin-number must be unique for each input tray. For example, if the actual destination has three input trays, each input tray must have a different job-bin-number.
  • tray-number

    Identifies the tray number of the input tray, depending on the printer model, associated with the job bin number.

    • GUI label

      Tray number

    • Type

      Single-valued

    • Allowed Values

      You can enter any integer value that the printer recognizes.

    • Default Value

      The default value for PSF command-attached and other-driver attached actual destinations is 1. This component does not apply to other attachment types.

      For command-attached actual destinations and other-driver attached actual destinations, if you specify any of the values for the input-tray name shown in the table under job-bin-number and no value for this component, the value for this component defaults to the value shown in the explanation of the job-bin-number component.

    • Usage Guidelines

      See the documentation for the printer device for further information about which types of input trays this printer supports.

  • duplex-supported

    Specifies whether two-sided printing is possible from this input tray.

    • GUI label

      Duplex

    • Type

      Single-valued

    • Allowed Values

      You can enter one of these fixed values:

      Fixed Value Input Synonym
      true yes
      false no

    • Default Value

      The default value for PSF command-attached and other-driver attached actual destinations is false. This component does not apply to other attachment types.

Default Values

If SNMP communication is active, InfoPrint queries the printer device and sets the values according to the response; otherwise, the default values are as described for each component.

Usage Guidelines

  • With PSF command-attached or PSF other-driver attached printers, you can specify a maximum of 15 values, one for each input tray of the printer device.
  • For PSF-other and PSF command-attached actual destinations, job-bin-number must be unique for each input tray. For example, if the actual destination has three input trays, each input tray must have a different job-bin-number.
  • With PSF TCP/IP attached printers, there is no limit on the number of values you can specify for psf-tray-characteristics.
  • InfoPrint automatically sets the media-ready and input-trays-supported actual destination attributes from the value you set here.
  • InfoPrint verifies that the values of the media-loaded component of this attribute are values of the media-supported attribute.
  • The InfoPrint Manager server can automatically set the values for psf-tray-characteristics for an SNMP printer only if you do not explicitly set the attribute when creating or modifying the actual destination or if you reset the attribute to the InfoPrint Manager default.
    Note: For media, the automatic default only detects the size of the medium. If you have different media that are the same size (for example, three different letter-size preprinted forms) and you need to differentiate between them in the attributes, you must explicitly set the attributes instead of using the automatic default.
