Title (EN) PRINT MEDIA AMOUNT DETERMINATION
(FR) DÉTERMINATION DE QUANTITÉ DE SUPPORTS D'IMPRESSION
Abstract:
(EN) The present subject matter describes determination of amount of print media present in an input tray of a printing system. In an example implementation of the present subject matter, a current operating torque of a motor that moves a pick arm for drawing print media from the input tray is monitored. The current operating torque is monitored while the pick arm is moved between a rest position and a pick-ready position. Based on the monitored operating torque, it is determined whether amount of print media present in the input tray is one of below and above a predefined amount of print media.
(FR) La présente invention concerne la détermination de la quantité de supports d'impression présents dans un plateau d'entrée d'un système d'impression. Dans un exemple de mise en œuvre de la présente invention, un couple de fonctionnement actuel d'un moteur qui déplace un bras de préhension pour retirer des supports d'impression présents dans un plateau d'entrée est surveillé. Le couple de fonctionnement actuel est surveillé pendant que le bras de préhension est déplacé entre une position de repos et une position prête à la saisie. Sur la base du couple de fonctionnement surveillé, on établit si la quantité de supports d'impression présents dans le plateau d'entrée est inférieure ou supérieure à une quantité prédéfinie de supports d'impression.
