Title
(EN) AUTOMATICALLY ADJUSTING PRINTING PARAMETERS USING MEDIA IDENTIFICATION
(FR) ADAPTATION AUTOMATIQUE DE PARAMÈTRES D'IMPRESSION PAR IDENTIFICATION DE SUPPORT
Abstract
(EN)
A method for automatically adjusting the setting(s) of a printer having a control circuit in communication with a sensory system and a database. The database is located in a storage medium and the data in the database includes one or more defined parameter settings corresponding to one or more media types. The sensory system is used to obtain a media identifier from media loaded into the printer. The control circuit determines the type of media from the media identifier. The media type is then compared to the database entries and used to retrieve any defined parameter setting(s) corresponding to the media type identified by the media identifier. Instructions to adjust the printer setting(s) according to the defined parameter setting(s) are determined at the control circuit. The control circuit then sends the instructions to the appropriate systems of the printer to adjusted the printer setting(s) according to the defined parameter setting(s).

L'invention concerne un procédé d'adaptation automatique du ou des réglages d'une imprimante dotée d'un circuit de commande en communication avec un système sensoriel et une base de données. La base de données est située sur un support de stockage et les données figurant dans la base de données comprennent un ou plusieurs réglages définis de paramètres correspondant à un ou plusieurs types de support. Le système sensoriel est utilisé pour obtenir un identifiant de support à partir de supports chargés dans l'imprimante. Le circuit de commande détermine le type de supports à partir de l'identifiant de support. Le type de support est alors comparé aux entrées de la base de données et utilisé pour récupérer un ou des réglages définis de paramètres correspondant au type de support identifié par l'identifiant de support. Des instructions pour adapter le ou les réglages de l'imprimante en fonction du ou des réglages définis de paramètres sont déterminées au niveau du circuit de commande. Le circuit de commande envoie alors les instructions aux systèmes appropriés de l'imprimante afin d'adapter le ou les réglages de l'imprimante en fonction du ou des réglages définis de paramètres.
