Title
(EN) CONTROL OF PRINTER FUNCTIONS VIA BAND ID
(FR) COMMANDE DES FONCTIONS D'IMPRIMANTES PAR IDENTIFICATION DE BANDE
Abstract
(EN) A method and apparatus for controlling the functions of high-speed line printers (10) through use of a preselected portion of a band identification mark (26) indicative of the function to be controlled. The rotating band (12), with its encoded band identification mark (26) is read by a band sensor (28) in order to determine whether the band identification mark (26) corresponds to a value stored in a look-up table. If the band identification mark (26) compares favorably with a stored value, a machine co-processor (34), through a system bus (42), commands the band speed to be set in conformance with the encoded band identification mark (26).
(FR) Procédé et appareil permettant de commander les fonctions d'imprimantes ligne par ligne (10) rapides par utilisation d'une partie présélectionnée d'une marque (26) d'identification de bande indiquant la fonction à commander. La bande rotative (12), munie de sa marque (26) d'identification de bande codée est lue par un détecteur (28) de bande afin de déterminer si la marque (26) d'identification de bande correspond à une valeur stockée dans une table de consultation. Si la marque (26) d'identification de bande correspond à la valeur stockée, un coprocesseur (34) de machine commande, au moyen d'un bus (42) du système, la vitesse de la bande à mettre en correspondance avec la marque (26) d'identification de bande codée.
