Pages per minute

Shows the number of pages the printer can print in a minute. You must enter this value; the printer does not report this information. Make sure that you enter a realistic throughput value, based on your experience with the printer and the jobs it processes.

Ricoh ProcessDirector uses this value to calculate the Estimated print duration property for print jobs. If this property is blank, the estimated print duration is not calculated. The Total pages value is combined with this value to estimate how long the job takes to print after it is assigned to the printer. Factors such as duplex and page size are not considered in this estimate.

Usage notes:

  • This value does not set the print speed on the printer.
  • If you change the pages per minute value, the estimated print duration changes for all current jobs that have this printer set for their Requested printer property.
