INTRODUCTION
This instruction manual explains the procedures for operating and maintaining the Frontier Manager Printer Controller (referred to as FMPC) for Fujilm Digital Minilab FRONTIER 350/370/355/375/570 as well as precautions for use. To ensure the proper use and optimum performance of the FMPC, read this manual thoroughly. This manual should be kept in a xed place near the machine so that it can be referred to any time a point needs to be claried. For detailed operations for the DI Controller, see the following manuals. DI Print/Data Writing Service Software [C4/C5] Instruction Manual : This manual describes the instructions, the error messages and actions to be taken in operating the DI Print/Data Writing Service Software.

Operational Safety and Use Conditions

Before using the equipment, read carefully and understand thoroughly the precautions set forth in this section.
The safety precautions are classied into WARNING and CAUTION categories. Supplementary operating instructions are given under IMPORTANT and NOTE categories. These four categories are dened as follows.

WARNING indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in serious injury or even death.

CAUTION indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, may result in minor or moderate injury. It may also be used to alert against unsafe practices and property-damage-only accidents.

IMPORTANT
IMPORTANT describes improper handling procedures that may adversely affect performance or damage the equipment. NOTE: NOTE designates those items, provisions, and supplementary explanations for which it is important to maintain methodical concern and consideration relative to operational procedures.

:
describes additional comment or useful information.

1.1

Safety

1.1.1 Basic Operating Precautions


When accessing the machine interior for inspection or servicing, shut down the system by proceeding with the post-operational checks, place the built-in circuit breaker in the OFF position, and turn OFF the main power circuit breaker. Inspecting or servicing the inside of the machine with the main power circuit breaker left ON may expose personnel to hazardous conditions and damage the machine. If the machine emits smoke, generates an abnormal sound or its external surface becomes unduly hot, immediately stop using it, set the power switch to STANDBY, place the built-in circuit breaker in the OFF position, turn OFF the main power circuit breaker, and contact your local dealer.

z Do not modify the machine without permission from the manufacturer because safety assurance features and other essential functions may be impaired. If the machine needs to be modied, contact your local dealer. x Never remove covers or other parts that are screwed down to avoid the risk of electric shock or injury to personnel. If any parts need to be unscrewed, contact your local dealer. Use only Fujilm-recommended replacement parts.

IMPORTANT
If parts other than those recommended by Fujilm are used, the warranty will be voided.

1.1.2 Caution regarding Electric Shock

Utmost care should be taken as the machine is connected to 200/210/220/230/240V AC power sources. Avoid the possibility of electric shock by noting the following: Never operate the machine if it is wet. Never operate the machine if the surrounding oor is wet. Ensure the electrical earth connection is permanently made. Ensure that all cables are undamaged and correctly connected.

1.2

Room Conditions

Temperature: 15 to 30C (59 to 86F) Ambient room temperatures above 30C (86F) or below 15C (59F) will destabilize processing and replenisher solution temperatures to the detriment of processing performance. Pay special attention to room temperatures in wintertime and maintain solution temperatures within designated ranges. Relative Humidity: 30% to 70% Relative humidities above 70% will result in inadequate printer paper transport or improper paper drying, producing abnormal prints. Maintain the ambient room relative humidity within the range of 30% to 70% RH at all times. Ventilation Provide a vent close to the processor section and maintain adequate ventilation. Illumination: 500 lux or lower Maintain room illumination levels so that no more than 500 lux falls on the scanner and printer upper surfaces. Should the equipment main body or paper magazine be exposed to direct outside light or strong reected light, use curtains or blinds to shield the equipment from such extraneous light. REFERENCE: Two 40W uorescent lamps provide 500 lux of illumination at a distance of 1 meter (3.3 ft.). NOTE:
Excessively high indoor illumination levels will adversely affect the quality of nished prints.

1.3

Main Control Unit for FMPC Handling Precautions

1.3.1 Main Control Unit FMPC


To prevent damage to the system, abide by the following points. Do not install any application software without Fujilms consent. Do not modify the data structure or data in the hard disk. Do not open the main control unit without the consent of Fujilms service representative. Do not add to or modify expansion cards or RAM cards. Do not reboot using the [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[Del] keys.

When connecting the PU800B to the SP1500/2000/3000, the billing information about DSC print is not outputted.
The PU800B cannot be used in the system that contains the Frontier Manager.

Precaution when connecting the PU800B to the FMPC


The billing information is not outputted when printing is performed with the print size from entry No.51 to the last on the [424] Print Size Setup screen. When the above is done together with the index print, only the billing for latter is outputted from the PU800B. When the DSC printing is performed in the Imaging Controller by using the print size of entry No.50, the total of DSC print basic price and printing price is printed on the same column of the receipt(Price itselt is correct). The PU800B uses Sort No as the receipt No. in the lm printing, and the last 4 digit of the Order No. in the DSC printing. (For example, when the Order No. is A00123, 0123 is used as the receipt No.)

Control Strip Storage and Handling Precautions


REFERENCE:
A control strip is used for checking the performance of the processing solutions. The package contents are composed of exposed but unprocessed paper strips, one reference strip (processed and used as the density reference), and the correction factor chart for the reference strip. Process a control strip once a day, measure the reection densities (R,G,B) using a densitometer and check for processing solution performance. IMPORTANT Place the control strips inside a plastic bag and store them in a freezer (-10C/14F or below). Storage at room temperatures leads to deterioration in performance. Moisture condensation occurs if the control strips are processed immediately after they have been taken out of freezer. This may give rise to processing unevenness. Do not open the folded end of the inner bag under any light, or the control strips may become fogged and rendered useless.

NOTE:
To change the timer date and time, check the day of the week and enter the time in the Timer ON Date/Time Setting box. Setup the preheat timer by following the steps on the next page, if necessary. IMPORTANT The ON time for a night-time preheating operation must not overlap with the ON time of the weekly timer since night-time preheating takes priority and shuts down all power when it is set OFF. If, for instance, the calendar timer is set to 5:00 AM and night-time preheating is turned ON at 3:30 AM, all the power will be shut down two hours later at 5:30 AM.
For preheating only once, set the same time for both the rst and second times. Select NO when no preheat timer is used. The second preheating timer is ignored if the rst and second times overlap.

<Example>
1st. preheat time: 2:00 AM 2nd. preheat time: 3:00 AM With the above settings, night-time preheating will occur from 2:00 AM to 4:00 AM (2 hours).
