Setting Custom Type paper (VersaLink B400DN)

Hi,

 

VersaLink B400DN offers paper types called Custom Type 1 through 5.

 

How do I set their properties (eg, thickness, etc)?

 

Thanks,

Ori

Are you sure it has Custom Type Because the only thing I see for Custom is a custom size, not a type, a type would imply it is OK to print on stocks that are not supported.

Re: Setting Custom Type paper (VersaLink B400DN)

It appears per the User guide (page 98) that Custom type ways has a weight of 60-90GSM, which makes it no more than Plain paper

Which would imply it is only an option so that you know that tray will not be used for Auto tray select, so you can load special stock for a special purpose and it will only get used if someone requests it at the machine or in the driver with it's designation

Re: Setting Custom Type paper (VersaLink B400DN)

 

I don't understand the explanations.  

Every printer I've had, a specific type of paper was selected when printing, identifying whether the paper was plain, glossy, thickness ... 

I see no specific selections to choose from in the print screen (Plain is very generic), and find no where to define specs for a job.  

C405 printer.  The manual says types and weights can be defined but am not finding detailed instructions on it.  Can not find a definition for what IOT media type is.  From the manual:  

Configuring Settings for Custom Paper

You can configure the printer for specific types of paper.

• Adjust Paper Type: This setting allows you to map the media type list with the IOT media type. For
example, you can designate a different type of paper as Plain. This setting allows the printer to
compensate for different weights and properties of the media.

• Custom Paper Names: This setting allows you to designate names to custom media types.
To map the media type list:

1. In the Embedded Web Server, log in as administrator, then click System→Defaults and Policies.
2. In the Paper Supply area, click Adjust Paper Type.
3. To change the paper designation, click a paper type, then select an option.
4. When finished, click OK.

To assign names to custom media:

1. In the Embedded Web Server, log in as administrator, then click System→Defaults and Policies.
2. In the Paper Supply area, click Custom Paper Names.
3. Type the names that you want to appear in the Adjust Paper Type window.
4. When finished, click OK.
