Time from Time from
ote: Time to first print is defined as the elapsed time when the print engine receives the Start Command from the printer controller to when the trailing edge of the first sheet exits the printer's exit feed rollers into the output bin. All measurements are with letter size paper, long-edge-feed, and standby mode.
The Infoprint 1312 printable area is limited to within 4.0 mm (0.158 in.) of top, bottom, left or right edges of the media. Any information placed outside this specified printable area will not print.
During the life of the printer, components are subject to wear based on usage. Printers continuously operating at or near the maximum duty cycle may require service for replacement of these components to ensure high quality printing and good performance throughout the life of the printer.
The Infoprint 1312 supports the following data streams:
Fonts and Symbol Sets
The fonts in PCL emulation are compatible with the fonts in the HP4500 and include four additional fonts and many extra symbol sets to support extra languages and applications. The fonts in the PostScript emulation are compatible with 69 of the 136 fonts in Adobe PostScript 3 and include 20 additional fonts.
Additional fonts can be downloaded to the printer RAM or optional Flash memory. PCL emulation supports both scalable and bitmapped downloadable fonts. PostScript emulation supports only downloadable scalable fonts.

Optra Forms Director is a Windows NT or Windows 2000 server-based program. Using additional host software (AS/400, UNIX or Mainframe), the host application sends a print spool file to a Windows NT or 2000 print queue. Optra Forms Director service automatically parses the print spool file into single or multiple print jobs using Microsoft Visual Basic Script or JScript methods and Named Pipes.
The spool file which may contain many individual documents is customized by separating it into individual jobs or by adding data or particular commands to the individual documents that are then sent to IP, LPR, or Windows printer destinations. The additional data or commands may be to staple, separate documents with a cover page, copy and collate, print on both sides, offset stack, fax, or hole punch each individual job. Print jobs are customized and distributed electronically to network printers automatically without making any changes to host applications.
Optra Forms is supported on the Infoprint 1312 using a Optra Forms flash or Hard Disk. Only one Optra Forms flash DIMM is supported. If a Flash DIMM and Optra Forms Flash DIMM are both installed, the Optra Forms DIMM will be used.(#4880) Optra Forms Manager
Optra Forms Manager enables administrators to manage and distribute forms to multiple printers over a TCP/IP network. This includes loading new forms and updating existing forms on an Optra Forms printer over a TCP/IP network.
Optra Forms Manager lets you:
To use Optra Forms Manager, the Optra Forms printers must be connected to a TCP/IP network. The LPR protocol is also supported to download forms.
Optra Forms Manager is now available on a separate CD for those customers who want to use this program to more effectively manage their Optra Forms printers over TCP/IP. Other third party service providers can also manage their customers forms more cost effectively.(#4873) Optra Forms 2 MB Flash DIMM
