What is "Plain A", "Plain B", and "Plain S" paper?

Jump to solution
Product Name: VersaLink® C405 Color Multifunction Printer
Operating System: macOS 10.13 - High Sierra

While logged in as admin on my C405, I can navigate to System > Defaults and Policies > Adjust Paper Type.

On this window it lists different kinds of paper, like bond, plain, recycled, a number of custom types, and so on. For each of these, it lists: Plain A, Plain B, Plain C, Plain D, Plain S, Plain A Reloaded,  Plain B Reloaded,  Plain C Reloaded,  Plain D Reloaded, and Plain S Reloaded. See linked image.

What is the difference between these plain paper types? Thickness? Weight?

It is the paper weight being referenced as I understand. FujiXerox does odd things.

On older devices, they were

Plain A (64-79gsm)
Plain B (80-90gsm)
Plain C (91-105gsm)
 
Reloaded means just that, paper you already ran once and may have a curl (Slows down to hopefully stop jams)
 
 
I'm not sure why they would break it up into 8 different ones though. But the 3 were from occasions where you are running Plain stock, and the fuser temp needed to be coaxed just a little to get the right output, but not enough to change it to Heavyweight or lightweight stock.
