About this Guide


This Guide provides qualified Luxel service engineers with sufficient information to maintain all variants of the Luxel V/Vx-Series 9600 (B1) and 6000 (B2) CTP system. It assumes the engineer has attended an authorised training course and is familiar with laser safety, product features and service procedures required to ensure the long-term operation of the equipment. The Guide is divided into three volumes: Volume 1 - System Overview. Describes the main product features, configurations, modules and principles of operation. Volume 2 - System Description. Describes the modules and assemblies in more detail and shows how they are interconnected. Volume 3 - System Replacements. Shows how to remove and replace field replaceable units (FRUs), and carry out any set ups. System faults are reported as error codes that appear on the MMI console. An up to date listing of the code numbers, fault descriptions and recommended recovery steps are in a regularly updated Guide called Luxel V/Vx-Series Error Codes. This is available as a Manual from the FFEI Service Information Online site.

INTRODUCING THE LUXEL SYSTEM


This chapter introduces the main features and modules of the Luxel platesetter system:

1.1 Luxel CTP Features


The Luxel CTP belongs to the Fujifilm family of Luxel platesetters for scanning directly from computer-to-plate using photopolymer plates. It operates as a single- or dual-laser expose system with a range of three system variants and modules for loading plates up to a maximum size of B1 or B2: Fully-Automatic (B1 and B2): modules include - Autofeeder, Plate Transport Module, Imaging Engine, Buffer, Processor and Stacker - see Figure 1.2 and Figure 1.3. Fully-automatic systems are either with or without a punch. Semi-Automatic (B1 and B2): modules include - Imaging Engine (with loading platform), Buffer (B1 versions only), Processor and Stacker - see Figure 1.4. All Semi-automatic machines are without a punch (web). Manual (B1 and B2): modules include - Imaging Engine (with loading platform). All Manual machines are without a punch (web). A flow of job images is sent directly across a SCSI bus from the RIP and held in a queue on the Engine which serves as the main scanning module. While exposing images to plate, the Engine can continue to receive and store new jobs from the RIP. The Luxel CTP uses an internal drum with plate vacuum, plate punching (fullyautomatic only) and a high-speed spinner to scan media with modulated laser light. It processes RIPped data for fast optical scanning, controls plate handling to the output, and runs system software for managing all the main operations. Overall control of the machine is by the operator using an MMI touchpanel displaying sets of menu screens as icons and selectable button options.

VOLUME 1 (1-2) INTRODUCING T HE LUXEL SYSTEM

A typical Luxel CTP system has the following standard and optional features: A separate Raster Image Processor (RIP) server and optional client workstations. Scanning to photopolymer plates. A choice of RIP software applications with a Graphics User Interface (GUI). Dual-laser beam system or an upgrade path from a single to dual-beam system. Variable resolutions from 48 l/mm (1219 dpi) to 144 l/mm (3657 dpi). Media database on the Engine holding editable or seletable media data on the plate types. Comprehensive diagnostic self-tests and error screens for the user and engineer.

1.1.1 Introducing the Luxel CTP Configuration


A typical site configuration, shown in Figure 1.1, would normally allow the RIP server to accept images from a number of networked desktop sources. Network links are: Ethernet: an example of a typical protocol between the RIP server and DTP systems. RS232: diagnostic data is sent from the main System PCB on the Engine to the PC for review by the engineer. SCSI: RIPed image data sent from the PC to the engine. RS232: communication link for controlling the flow of plates to the Processor.

1.2.1 Autofeeder
See Figure 1.2. The Autofeeder consists of a moveable elevator frame and a set of control systems that allow a cassette to be aligned with the PTM plate feed mechanisms. See Volume 2 Section 3.2 which describes the module in more detail.

VOLUME 1 (1-6) INTRODUCING T HE LUXEL SYSTEM

1.2.1.1 Elevator
An elevator frame (with shelves and cassettes) moves vertically up/down to align an MMI-selected cassette with the PTM plate feed. A gear/motor and a set of chains and pulleys raises and lowers the elevator, with space at the top protected by a multi-cassette housing assembly.

1.2.1.2 Trolley and Cassette


See Figure 1.6. Cassettes are always transported on a trolley for loading and installing in the Autofeeder. Loading the cassette is carried out in a safelight area, usually separate from the platesetter room which operates under normal lighting conditions. Cassettes are never manually lifted by the operator or engineer. Each cassette has: an (ID)entity label read by the PTM a removeable top cover for plate loading a front lid that opens when the cassette is forwarded to the PTM feed head. Cassettes and trolleys require periodic maintenance.

CASSETTE

TROLLEY

Figure 1.6 Trolley and cassette: general view

The trolley has two plate loading positions: horizontal and vertical, set from a lever handle at one end. Its main function is to move the cassette from a safelight loading area to the Autofeeder cassette door where it docks into a set position. This allows the operator to push the cassette onto to an empty shelf.

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 1 (1-7)

1.2.2 Plate Transport Module (PTM)


The module consists of an interleaf bin and the plate handling mechanisms used to advance the cassette from the Autofeeder, and remove plates and interleaf paper from the cassette before the plate is conveyed to the drum. See Volume 2 Section 3.3 which describes the module in more detail.

1.2.2.1 Interleaf Bin


Interleaf paper between the plates is diverted to a waste bin area that is periodically emptied by the operator. System software keeps a count of the removed sheets and sends an alert to the MMI.

1.2.2.2 Plate Handling Mechanisms


A set of seven plate handling mechanisms inside the PTM carry out the following operations: secure the cassette to the shelf: X-direction door pull the cassette from the shelf to the feed head: cassette forward raise the plate pack to the correct height for plate nudging: stack increment nudge the plate and take it away from the pack: feed head prevent plate multi-feeds during the takeaway: retard pad divert and drive the interleaf sheet to a bin: interleaf diverter/drive guide and support the plate on route to the drum: plate guides.

1.2.2.3 Air Knife


An Air Knife system removes dust particles from the plate as it passes into the drum.

1.2.3 Imaging Engine


The Engine is responsible for receiving and storing job data from the RIP, processing image data for drum scanning (by deflecting and modulating two laser beams), driving the traverse carriage, managing the interlocks and generating the DC supply voltages for all other modules. It also houses the MMI (Man Machine Interface) console used by the operator to control production workflow. See Volume 2 Section 3.4 which describes the module in more detail.

1.2.3.1 Optics Base and Periscope


Laser image processing is carried out in the optics base that generates a single laser beam split into two separate beams and then recombined into two co-incidental beams. Laser beam processing includes operations and modules run from the optics base: generate a laser beam: laser module filter light beam intensity: neutral density (ND) filter deflect beams for spinner rotation: electro-optic deflector (EOD)

VOLUME 1 (1-8) INTRODUCING T HE LUXEL SYSTEM

detect beam misalignments: position detector (POD) correct focus for plate thickness: focus adjust adjust spot size on a plate: aperture (NA) control. Other optics operations and modules are: Optics motor control, laser current limits, temperature limits and image data drive: violet optics motor board (VBOMB). beam deflection drive control: electro-optic deflector drive board (EODD) A `periscope' arrangement, consisting of two mirrors, bends the beams from the optics base towards the spinner. An intervening assembly moves across the path of the beams detects their laser power. See Volume 2 Section 5.1 which describes the module in more detail.

1.2.3.2 Loading Platform


Manual and Semi-Automatic machines have a loading platform allowing the operator to manually load a single plate for each job. Two versions are available for B1 and B2 sized plates. See Volume 2 Section 3.4.2.1 which describes the module in more detail.

1.2.3.3 Traverse Carriage


A traverse carriage, housing the spinner and mirror, moves across a central beam and drive rail using a frictionless drive shaft and a ball cage. Local control from a traverse PCB reads the current position of the shaft, the spinner rotation rate (encoder) and drives the traverse motor. See Section Volume 2 Section 4.1 which describes the module in more detail.

1.2.3.4 Drum and Input/Output Modules


Two band roller modules on the drum input and output move the plate from the PTM to the drum, and from the drum to the Buffer. After the plate has dropped into the drum from the input side, a push bar moves it towards the punch where it is held in position for centering and punching. After scanning, the push bar moves the plate to the output module where it is conveyed to the Buffer.

1.2.3.5 RFI Box


A separate box, housed inside the Engine, generates the system DC voltages distributed to other modules, and contains the main system and optics control PCBs. See Volume 2 Section 6.4 which describes the module in more detail.

1.2.3.6 Man-Machine Interface (MMI) Console


An MMI console on the Engine displays a set of menu screens with icons and buttons that the operator selects to control the platesetter. MMI menus are described in the Luxel Platesetter Operator's Manual.

1.2.3.7 Purified Air System


Clean air from a PAT module passes into the engine and optics base to ensure positive air pressure.

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 1 (1-9)

1.2.3.8 Drum Vacuum System


Provides the vacuum for conforming plates to the drum and air blow for releasing the plate. See Volume 2 Section 7.1 which describes the system in more detail.

1.2.4 Buffer
The Buffer module, which operates as a band roller, holds the plate in transit until the Processor is ready to develop the next job. See Volume 2 Section 3.5 which describes the module in more detail.

1.2.5 Plate Processor


A Plate Processor is closely-coupled to the Engine output so that both units operate in daylight conditions. The Engine and Processor share the same communication (comms) protocol: as plates are sent to the Processor, the two machines pass commands, for instance, to check if the Processor is ready. Communications can be enabled or disabled from the MMI; for maximum production purposes the link is normally enabled. The Processor is supplied separately from the other platesetter equipment and has its own Service Guide.

1.2.6 Plate Stacker


An optional Stacker, shown in Figure 1.7, collects developed plates from the Processor and stacks them in an upright position for the next production stage. Unlike the Processor, the stacker operates independently using a sensor to detect the arrival of a plate. Power is supplied from the Processor. The Stacker (from Global Graphics) is supplied separately from the other platesetter equipment and has its own Service Guide.

2.2 Introducing Plate Handling


Figure 2.1 and Figure 2.2 show a top-level view of the plate handling systems. Plate handling is a sequential set of machine operations for transporting plates, one at a time, between the variant plate loading system and the processor. It uses the following modules: Autofeeder (fully-automatic): houses cassettes (with plates) on elevator shelve(s) for feeding into the PTM. PTM (fully-automatic): feeds plates from a cassette to the engine and removes interleaf paper. Engine (all variants): holds a plate in a drum for centering, exposing and punching (if the punch is fitted). Buffer (fully-automatic): transports plates from the engine to the processor. Plate handling operations are carried out by plate transport mechanisms (rollers, push bars, etc) locally controlled by motors and sensor devices. Local management is from software routines running on a local FHMB PCB. Overall system management is from the LSB that sends commands (and receives data) to the FHMB.

2.2.1 Plate Handling Board (FHMB)


Four plate handling motor PCBs are fitted on the platsetter: FHMB 2 and 3 fitted to the PTM FHMB 1 and 4 fitted to the Engine. Each FHMB operates using the same on-board functions and are replaced using the same procedure. Differences between PCBs depend on local I/O device connections for the variant machine and the on-board control firmware. A description of each FHMB interface to their devices is given in the following sections: FHMB 1 (Engine): see Volume 2 Section 3.4.1.1. FHMB 2 (PTM): see Volume 2 Section 3.3.1.1. FHMB 3 (PTM): see Volume 2 Section 3.3.1.2. FHMB 4 (Engine): see Volume 2 Section 3.4.1.2.

2.2.1.1 FHMB Operation


A block view of the PCB is shown in Figure 2.5. This section describes the main common functions on FHMBs (1 to 4). Each FHMB operates as a local node under the system management of the LSB that sends and receives high-level media handling commands and status messages. Plate handling control is distributed across the CAN bus and effectively operates in real-time. It allows devices (sensors, motors, solenoids, relays and fans) to switch on/off in the required sequence for moving plates to the processor or output. FHMB functions are summarised as: Interfacing for sensors connected directly or indirectly (via distribution boards). Control of motor drives associated with each sensor. Control of local solenoids to various devices (relays, etc). interconnect PCBs for the CAN bus network. All four PCBs are identical in build, but the tasks they perform depends on the devices they control. Because the handling software routines are configured for each device, it is not possible to interchange FHMBs. Service engineers can check the configuration (software issue levels, etc) from a separate utility, or

VOLUME 1 (2-8) INTRODUCING L UXEL M ODULES

dump and restore configuration parameters to a local hard disk. On-board NVRAM values for plate handling can also be accessed and stored to the engine disk.

The CAN bus interconnections for the FHMBs (and STB) is based on the daisychain arrangement shown in Figure 2.19. CAN bus data and power to the STB is conveyed through an umbilical cable attached to FHMB (4). A full description of the CAN bus system is in Volume 1 Section 2.5.2.

Voltages, Filters and Interlocks:


Voltages generated by the FHMB from an external +24 V source are: +5 V - digital/analogue circuits and CAN (supplied by on-board switched mode, 150 KHz, regulated from +24 V). +18 V - FPD (regulated from +24 V) on FHMB(4) only. Two inductors on the FHMB filter the +24 V supply. Note that the +36 V is routed through FHMB (4) to the STB is not used by the other FHMBs.

On-Board Fusing:
The board has built-in fuse protection for the output and switching circuits, plus spare fuses available for the service engineer. Fuses are deployed as follows:
A) B) C) D)

one fuse for each stepper and dc motor one fuse for each high-power solenoid one fuse to cover all the low-power solenoids four spare fuses held in holders distributed around the board.

Output Controls and Driving:


Plate handling motors and solenoids are controlled and driven from the FHMB.

Solenoids, Relays and Fans:


A single FHMB is able to drive: High-power solenoids or relays at 24 V (2 A peak). Low power solenoids or relays at 24 V (500 A peak). A constant +24 V to local fans.

DC Motors:
DC motor controller/drivers can deliver up to 2.5 A peak (2 A continuous) at 24 VDC to motors via a control register.

Stepper Motors:
Stepper motor control is provided for a set of plate handling stepper motors. Two TPU (Timer Processor Unit) channels from the MPU provide the step clocking edges to each motor controller: the even channel steps the motor while the odd channel serves as a feedback path to the TPU for pulse counting. The stepper control circuitry provides the correct stepping sequence for each motor. Control registers, selected by the MPU, determine the type of holding current, motor enable and motor direction.

2.3 Introducing Traverse Scanning


The traverse scan system is managed by the LSB using position data passed from the Traverse system. Its main assemblies are housed on a traverse beam and a traverse carriage. A cast aluminium beam supports the traverse carriage and includes the following sub-assemblies: V-groove rail: provides a sliding surface for the ball cage. Ball cage: a precision assembly of ball bearings that allow the carriage to slide along the V-groove. Both carriage and cage need to be physically aligned. A separate software utility checks for `creep' (that is, the two assemblies gradually become misaligned as the system constantly traverses) Drive rail: provides a drive rail for the traverse motor spindle and a base for the linear scale. Linear scale: runs along the drive rail to provide position coding for the readhead encoder. Actuators: All position measurements are offset from two actuators that indicate the exact reference (Index) and coarse reference (Home). The carriage assembly is motor-driven to run along the beam drive rail from its Home position on the Service side. A traverse motor, which moves the carriage, is controlled directly from the Traverse PCB. Position feedback is provided by a readhead sensing micro positions on the linear scale; commands from the System Board, via the Traverse PCB, control the position and direction of the carriage. Traverse PCB: This PCB runs local software handling routines for operating the traverse carriage mechanisms. Spinner: The spinner (Speedring type) includes an encoder that returns an Index signal for each revolution and a rotating mirror for reflecting the laser beams onto the plate. Baffles: two baffles are fitted: removable and fixed. Traverse Motor: a DC motor drives a spindle along the drive rail. The motor assembly includes a casting. Readhead: an encoder with sensors for reading the micro positions on the linear rail. Umbilical: An umbilical ribbon cable from the Traverse PCB to FHMB4 connects the CAN control/status signals and the power voltages. The cable is positioned along a tray and flexes as the carriage traverses the drum. The carriage is removed from the engine using two extenders fitted to the beam. Most service procedures are completed while the carriage is located on the extenders. Main Diagnostic tests and utilities are available for the Service Engineer to check and move the traverse.

VOLUME 1 (2-12) INTRODUCING L UXEL M ODULES

2.3.1.1 STB Main Functions


MPU Controller
The main functions of the MPU (Motorola 68376) are: To control the Traverse PCB locally by receiving and interpreting high-level commands sent from the System Board over the CAN bus. These commands typically include, for example, Spinner Start/Stop, Traverse Datum, Fans On/ Off. Initialise the Precision Motion (PM) Controller that operates the closed-loop position feedback system for the traverse control. Pass control and position data to the PM controller. Control the flow of diagnostic data to a local VDU.

Precision Motion Controller


See Figure 2.7. An LM628 Precision Motion (PM) Controller, operating in position mode, is dedicated to controlling the traverse servo mechanism. The device provides multiplexed 6-bit position data to a 12-bit D-to-A controller that drives the DC traverse motor. The PM controller is programmed with position, velocity and acceleration parameters appropriate for the image size, number of optical beams and resolution. Two values to the PM controller are compared to give a digital error signal that is converted to a drive voltage. PLL reference frequency at 13.62 MHz divided down into two different clock frequencies (4.55 and 6.82 MHz), depending on the resolution and number of beams. Digital encoded signals from the readhead. The drive signal is produced by comparing two sets of numerical values:

A digital error signal is then developed as a numerical value that is passed to the DAC for driving the motor. When error or limit conditions are detected, the PM controller is also able to interrupt the MPU.

Figure 2.8 Spinner speed control circuit

Spinner controller circuitry on the Traverse PCB is composed of five separate functions detailed below.
1: Phase Detector.

The phase detector compares the phase and frequency of DATA A from the encoder with a reference frequency of 480 KHz (or 160 KHz when the spinner is idling at 10, 000 rpm). This allows any deviations of spinner speed to be determined. An analogue servo, consisting of an integrator and a phase advance circuit, ensures that the spinner is phase-locked to the reference signal (that is, DATA A and reference edges are co-incident). A filter sets the overall bandwidth of the control loop.

2: Analogue Servo.

3: Pulse Width Modulator. This function turns the analogue servo signal into a 60 KHz pulse train with a duty cycle proportional to the analogue signal level. This signal has an offset, so 5 V represents 0% and 10 V represents 100%. 4: PAL.

A PAL logic stage uses the PWM signal to drive the spinner motor with a power level proportional to the level demanded by the analogue servo stage. It also sequences the power stage outputs (3-phase) so that the spinner motor is driven correctly. The logic stage handles control functions, for example, checking that the spinner speed is within normal limits.

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 1 (2-15)

5: Power Output.

The power stage takes the six signals from the previous stage and uses these to control the six MOSFET transistors which switch to energise the motor windings. Hall sensors around the rotor indicate the position of the rotor, and their outputs are decoded for switching MOSFETS in the correct sequence to start the motor.

Spinner Braking:
When a Stop command is sent, or the PSU is interrupted, the top winding switches are opened and the bottom switches are closed. This type of braking is regenerative and effectively short-circuits the motor windings. Braking time for the spinner is less than 20 secs.

Reference Clock Generation:


A single 19.2 MHz crystal generates all the reference frequencies for the spinner and traverse. Dividers and a PLL provide the clocking signals used by the spinner controller and the PM controller respectively. Synchronised clocking between the spinner and traverse subsystems is important for obtaining exact resolutions and image start positions.

Diagnostics:
The MPU manages the local traverse diagnostic/utility routines for checking the presence of the linear encoder, traverse motor and amplifier. These diagnostics are available from the (Main>) prompt.

Voltages and Drives:


The Traverse PCB is supplied with a single +36 V and an auxiliary +24 V from the CAN umbilical. A separate +5 V is also supplied for exclusive use by the CAN interface. Voltage used on the PCB are: +5 V - digital/analogue circuits and traverse motor drive (supplied by onboard DC-DC device converting +36 V supply). -5 V - analogue circuits (via an on-board charge pump). +15 V - for analogue circuits. +36 V - spinner drive. Analogue signal from the traverse DAC is converted to current by a linear pushpull amplifier that is disabled by the Brake command. The traverse current is also available for diagnostic checks.

Temperature Monitor:
A temperature device on the Traverse PCB is monitored and, if the reading is above a set limit, triggers an error code.

2.3.2 Cassette and Media Database Control


See the Luxel Platesetter Operator's Manual and also Figure 2.9. A hard disk (HDD) on the Engine stores downloaded job images for scanning, persistent images for plate quality tests, and holds the following MMI database information: Media: media details (plate size/thickness, type), including the default number of plates for a pack. This database is downloaded from the RIP. The

VOLUME 1 (2-16) INTRODUCING L UXEL M ODULES

number of plates is an editable value. Cassette: the cassette ID is identified on the database when it is pulled into the PTM. Each cassette holds details of the loaded media type selected by the operator from the MMI. Elevator: holds the cassette ID only and is updated when the cassette is added or removed.

RIP INTERFACE

Figure 2.9 Cassette and media database operation

Media details are downloaded from the RIP application to the database after the user adds new plate types and sizes to the RIP memory. An active cassette is read by the system for its ID number allowing the MMI to display the cassette's media details currently held on the database. Cassettes are selected for advancement from the database details on the required type and size of plates for the next job downloaded in the queue. A single cassette with an ID can be refilled with the same type and size of media and recognised immediately by the database. Cassettes loaded with a different type or size of media need to have their database entry modified by the user from the MMI before the system can start to use the installed plates.

2.3.3 Plate Processor Interface Commands


The Processor and Engine use a common set of interface commands to communicate information on machine status and readiness across an RS232 bus while the system is running. This communications link is enabled or disabled from the TOOLS menu on the MMI (see the Luxel Platesetter Operator's Manual.)

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 1 (2-17)

A set of basic commands control the transfer of an imaged plate from the Buffer to the Processor. Plates are held in the Buffer until the Processor develops the previous plate and requests the next plate. While the communication link is enabled, production flow is maximised; if the link is disabled, production will still continue but is likely to be slower and more prone to plate transfer errors.

2.4 Introducing Image Expose


Image expose system (data flow and control) functions are shown in Figure 2.10. Job image data is downloaded from the RIP server, stored as a queue on the engine hard drive disk (HDD) and processed into optical streams (X and Y) for exposure on a plate. Once the engine has stored a complete image (at least one separation) from the RIP, it is held in a queue for plate exposure. The plate size and type is selected by the platesetter from the RIP job details. Laser beams X and Y are generated, focused, adjusted for density and checked for correct alignment and power settings from the optics base.

2.4.1 Image Expose Modules and Operations


Image exposure is generated and controlled by the following: RIP - two-way communication between the RIP server and the platesetter is via a differential SCSI link to the LSB. A diagnostics RS232 channel allows the engineer to interrogate the results of embedded test routines on the LSB. Luxel System Board - the System Board is overall imaging manager that controls the expose sequence via the CAN bus. It receives image data from the RIP, stores it onto engine HDD and converts it into two streams for the X and Y beams. Electro-optic deflection is based on data supplied by the LSB. VBOMB - the Violet Optical Motor Board controls the optics motors on the optics base for the ND density, focus adjust, aperture control and laser power detection. Control is monitored from the sensor signals returned by these devices. The VBOMB also controls the laser diode temperature, provides power limit protection and the current control for image data switching. Volume 2 Section 5.17 describes the operation of the VBOMB in more detail. EODD - the Electro-Optic Deflector Driver board generates the sine and cosine waveforms for the EOD deflectors from data supplied across the EODD interface bus from the LSB. Waveforms are passed to the EODHV board for further amplification. EODHV - the Electro-Optic Deflector High Voltage board takes the sine and cosine waveforms from the EODD and converts them into high voltage signals suitable for the Electro-Optic deflectors (EODs). It also allows a DC bias to be applied to the deflectors to allow beam coincidence to be achieved. Optics Base - this consists of modules that generate the two laser beams,

VOLUME 1 (2-18) INTRODUCING L UXEL M ODULES

deflect them to a parallel swathe on the plate, adjust focus, illumination and spot size. It also houses lens for collimating the beam and a power detection to ensure the two beams are aligned. Periscope - an arrangement of mirrors that divert a laser beam from the optics base to the spinner mirror. It also includes a laser power detector (LPD), inline with the light path, to provide accurate samples of power readings for each beam. Two angled mirrors, M1 (top) and M2 (bottom), redirect the laser beams. Only M2 mirror is field-adjustable using two fine-adjuster screws. Spinner - rotates a mirror to divert the laser beams to a plate. It also includes an encoder that provides SPIN INDEX and DATA A CLOCK signals to the LSB for closed-loop spinner speed control.

Data for each image is compressed, stored, decompressed and converted to a serial stream on the LSB and passed to the laser module as a switched data stream, see Figure 2.13. Two laser sources (LD1 and LD3) generate respective polarised beams (X or and Y). deflected for position by an electro-optic device (EOD). The two beams, when combined, run directly on the same axis, appear visually as a single beam. Each beam provides a range of focused spot sizes for high speed scanning and productivity. Resolutions available (at l/mm) are: 47, 48, 71, 72, 94, 96, 100 and 144.

Monitors sensor inputs for accurate motor positioning. Provides memory storage for local optics operation and set-up information. Controls and protects laser diode temperature and power limits. Optics devices (ND, focus, aperture and LPD) are moved by stepper motors to their Home position and a set number of steps in either direction from Home. Sensors associated with the devices are: ND Filter Home (S1) Focus Limit/Home (S2 and S3) Aperture Control Home (S5) Laser Power Detector Home (S6) Three detector PCBs are controlled from the VBOMB:
1.

Position Detector (POD): a two dimensional position detector that is used to measure the relative alignment of the laser beams. This detector is calibrated in conjunction with the ND wheel to obtain the optimum level of light power. Laser Power Detector (LPD): used as a reference for setting the output drive level. The LPD is calibrated to ensure that the laser beam is aligned with the centre of the detector.

2.

CAN Control Interface:


Real-time CAN signals are received and transmitted from a transceiver. CAN power (+5 VDC) is supplied to the VBOMB from the CAN connector.

Diagnostics:
Routines run on the VBOMB generate error messages which are read by the diagnostic software on the System Board.

MPU:
An MPU, clocked at 10 MHz, runs the local drive and control routines for the optics sensors, motors and laser controls. High-level commands are received across the CAN bus and VBOMB status messages are sent back to the System Board. Commands move the motors to a certain position; VBOMB reports to the System Board on whether the motors can be moved or not.

Flash Memory:
A 512 K x 8 FLASH EEPROM holds the optics control code and board diagnostics. New firmware code is downloaded from the RIP server via the System Board.

Voltages and Drives:


The supplied voltages, +24 VDC (drives stepper motors), +5 VDC (digital devices) and +15 V (drives lasers), are monitored by the MPU for providing environment information.

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 1 (2-25)

Laser Power Detector


Power levels for each beam are measured from the LPD.

Position Detector
The two beams are aligned by the VBOMB (from POD data) to be co-incidental during the non-scanning stage.

Motor Drivers
Low power (unipolar) stepper motors are driven from separate drivers controlled by the Timer Processor Unit (TPU) channel levels on the MPU.

2.4.3.2 EOD Control


Calibrated media expose control is based on a set of co-operating functions that operate before and during an expose scan: EOD deflection: deflects X and Y beams before they reach the rotating spinner mirror. Laser module monitoring: the module returns data on the current laser power and temperature outputs which are digitised and passed to the VBOMB. Beam coincidence alignment: beams X and Y are aligned, one on top of the other, for beam coincidence on the drum.

EODHV Operation
The EODHV provides each EOD module (X and Y) with the high voltage sine/ cosine waves required for beam deflection. The EODD supplies a single differential control voltage that consists, for each deflector, of a 667 Hz AC component on a DC bias voltage for 40,000 spinner revolutions. The AC (sinusoidal) part is used for beam deflection, and is synchronised with the spinner mirror rotation. The DC part compensates for fixed angular mis-alignments in the EOD assemblies detected by the POD and is adjusted during beam coincidence. The EODD provides two supply voltages: +24 VDC (and Return): EODHV PCB supply. +12 VDC: EODHV reference voltage. For each channel (X and Y), the composite input signal from the EODD is separated into DC and AC components using a filter circuit. The DC component sets a bias voltage of up to +750 V on the deflector. A bridge circuit drives each transformer primary using the AC component recovered from the filter. The AC voltage at the EOD deflectors can be varied in the range +2 Kv (pk-pk). Figure 2.15 shows each of the EODX DIFF input signals with respect to Ground and the signal obtained across the two EOD inputs. The voltage values are only shown as an example.

2.5 Introducing Luxel Power and Control


2.5.1 Luxel System Board (LSB)
See Volume 2 Section 6.1. The LSB acts as the overall manager of the system and performs the top-level control and processing tasks using resident firmware that is down-loadable. Some of the main functions and features of the LSB are: an interface to image data from the RIP server motherboard control for beam dongle facility provides the drive and iconic translation for the MMI display I/O connection to external modules (Processor, CAN node boards and RIP server) image data store and processing before exposure holds the deflection LUTs and NVRAM parameters used for dynamic EOD deflection control provides system control for the plate handling and optics motors. Platesetter system control and inter-node communications is across a CAN (Controller Area Network) bus that can also operate with the LSB as the master node. A description of this network (adapted for Luxel) is in Section 2.5.2. Functions on the System PCB are divided into two working areas: LSB System Control (see Section 2.5.1.1) LSB Image Data Path (see Section 2.5.1.2).

2.5.1.1 LSB System Control


See Figure 2.17. System control, based on the MPU (Motorola 68376), acts as an intelligent supervisor for the Luxel system to receive high level commands from the CAN network and transmit commands for driving the other electronic sub-systems. Overall control is based on the the bussing, interface and MPU arrangement shown in Figure 2.17.

FLASH and SRAM Memory


Application, boot and diagnostic code files for the MPU are stored in (non-volatile) FLASH memory before transfer to the MPU on power-up or user request. Two MBytes of FLASH PROM (512 Kbyte devices) are fitted as standard, with provision for a further 1 MByte at a later stage. The contents of the FLASH memory can be updated at any time from a utility running on the RIP server. This facility is used for on-site software and configuration updates. The firmware level on the LSB must match the other node PCB firmware levels for the system to operate correctly. SRAM (512 Kbytes devices) is used (alongside FLASH memory) to provide writable storage for the MPU.

LSB Temperature Monitoring


The LSB monitors its own temperature and generates an in-range or out-ofrange signal from a dedicated thermostat on-board device. Temperature status signals are periodically read by the LSB which stops scanning and reports a failure to the MMI as an error code if the reading is out-of-range.

Voltages and Drives


The LSB operates with the following voltages supplied from the PSU: +5 V - used by digital and analogue devices. +15 V - used by the PLL and regulated down to +12 V for use by the disk drives.

LSB Diagnostics
The MPU is able to run a set of on-board checks for the memory and registers from commands and on power up.

Real-Time Clock
An embedded R-T clock is used by the system for date and time stamping. The clock is set from an engineering utility.

NVRAM
NVRAM on the LSB stores the system-specific parameters for controlling the optics, plate handling, etc. Volume 2 Section 1.8 explains how to view and temporarily store the parameters.

2.5.1.2 LSB Image Data Path


Figure 2.18 shows the image data route and functions on the LSB from the RIP image data input to the laser modulator.

Data Path Operation


See Figure 2.18. The basic sequence for processing image data by the LSB is as follows:
1. 2.

An image file (page/picture) is sent from the RIP via the PCI SCSI link. Data is transferred, via the PCI bus, to a compression circuit in consecutive 16-bit wide words. Direct memory access (DMA) and a first-in first-out (FIFO) buffer provide optimum transfer rates. Compressed data is transferred to a buffer memory in consecutive words using DMA/FIFO. From here, image data is stored to the SCSI disk. Steps 2. to 3. are repeated until a the complete image is received. When an image is to be exposed, the SCSI bandwidth is allocated on a priority basis to the output process. Steps 2. to 3. are reversed. Data is taken off the image storage disk, decompressed, and transferred to the output formatter/serializer by the DMA and FIFO buffer. The serializer synchronises data to an absolute position on the drum, and passes data to the EODD.

Data Compression/Decompression
See Figure 2.18. Data interfaces for compression/decompresssion devices are set at 16 bits for maximum performance. A separate DMA controller manages the transfer of data from the compressor to the FIFO and from there to the buffer memory on the Mbus. Up to 16 transfers can be completed before the bus is released. The compression technique applied is LZW. Compression/decompression data transfers are increased in speed by DMA control of the bus and I/O FIFO buffers.
1.

A compression (C-FIFO) input on the DMA controller interfaces to the compressor and accepts data at its the maximum rate while space exists in the FIFO. The input data pat is 32-bits wide. A compression (C-FIFO) output on the DMA controller provides a master interface to the Mbus and the buffer memory. The output data path is 16-bits wide. The D-FIFO function for the decompression DMA controller operates in the same way as the compression DMA controller explained in steps 1. and 2.

2.

3.

The length of the compressed record depends on a calculated setting for multiples of input data lines. This calculation is also used by the decompressing process. A dual decompressor system strips alternate records from the buffer for transfer to the output formatter.

Buffer Memory
This function provides intermediate DRAM storage between the data compression/decompression devices and the disk drives. The size of the buffer is 8 MBytes and the data burst rate is 80 Mbytes/sec. Buffer management is based on four data streams: odd/even compression records from the compressor are written to disk odd/even records from the disk are written to the decompressors.

Internal SCSI Bus and Drives


A complete image is loaded into two disk drives that operate with separate SCSI busses in order to improve performance. Each bus conforms to the single-ended narrow standard that is also SCSI 3 (Ultra SCSI) compliant.

Output Formatter
The formatter receives decompressed data and stores it into two line-oriented buffers (one buffer per beam) before transfer to the serialiser. Each decompressor has its own set of line buffers to cater for a minimum of 90 lines of the output image. The actual number of scan lines that the buffer holds is calculated by a formula at the compression stage. Data is passed to the serialiser by alternating the output from the buffer of each decompressor. Once the requested number of lines have been written to the buffer, and the output buffer is empty, the buffers are flipped for the next set of decompressed lines.

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 1 (2-33)

Serialiser
The serialiser takes the two beam streams from the output decompression buffers and converts them into data streams for the laser diode drivers. It uses all the data from the output buffers on the first decompressor before switching to the alternate output buffer on the second compressor. To avoid position errors, and determine the start of image, a clock feeding the serialiser is synchronised to the INDEX signal from the spinner encoder.

2.5.2 CAN Network Control


See Figure 2.19. System control messages are exchanged over an industry-standard CAN (Controller Area Network) bus distributed between the seven slave node PCBs: System (SSB) - this operates as a master to download embedded firmware to the other slave nodes. FHMBs (1, 2, 3 and 4) Traverse (STB) VBOMB. CAN network bussing is based on interlinking cables, daisy-chained between boards. Each board is linked to the network as a node that can transmit or receive messages to any other node. The CAN standard is a serial data interface used for real-time control signals where the machine environment calls for robust and reliable internal communications. The CAN network model for data transfer is especially useful in that nodes can be added, swapped or removed after the network mapping tables have been modified. Also, it provides a system with extra network management features and extensive real-time error checking and recovery procedures. On a CAN network, system data (sensor data, motor commands, etc) is passed between nodes as a frame messaging system where the signal content is labelled by an identifier that is unique throughout the network. All nodes receive transmitted messages and perform an acceptance test to detect whether the message is relevant. The message frame typically consists of fields denoting Start/End of Frame, Data, Control, Acknowledgements and CRC Error Bits. Other frames, controlling the network for bus errors and overloads, are also transmitted between nodes. Typical messages between the SSB and node boards would include, for instance, an SSB supervisor command to start a motor and a node response that the motor has started or failed to start after a timeout. Error handling routines, built into the CAN software, automatically attempt a recovery procedure depending on the type of error reported. All messages on the bus are checked by each node and acknowledged if they are correct. Bus errors will cause the frame to be retransmitted, or (in the case of persistent failures) for error reporting to the system user via the diagnostics.

CAN controller devices on node PCBs are tightly coupled to their board MPUs which manage local board processes, and include a CAN interface. The CAN protocol operates as peer-to-peer, but for certain tasks also operates as master-slave when, for instance, the SSB constantly receives and transmits frames as the master. Local data is sent from a node to the SSB. The SSB returns high-level control signals to the nodes for synchronising the optics, scanning and plate handling sub-systems. The system employs a high-speed CAN version (CAN-H) where signal levels are set at 2.75-4.5 V (HIGH) and 0.5-2.25 V (LOW). Terminations (at 120 ohms) are provided.

2.5.3 Power Distribution Control


See Figure 2.21 and Volume 2 Section 6.2. Platesetter power is generated and routed as follows: PSU 1: supplies +5 V, +24 V, +36 V, +15 and -15 V from the RFI box Power Filter: filters DC supply before it is routed from the RFI box. Vacuum Pump: AC mains is controlled via a relay so that vacuum is switched on during imaging. Emergency Power Stop: a separate PSU supplies +24 V to emergency buttons on the PTM (Fully-automatic) and Engine (manual). Interlock Control: the main voltages for the spinner, laser and plate handling motors are switched off by an interlock system operated by opening a cover. PAT, Stacker and Processor: these modules are powered separately from the Engine. Elevator: AC power is routed via the PTM for the elevator motor.

Always obey the warnings, cautions, and any other instructions included in this Guide, and in other relevant equipment manuals associated to the equipment. Never attempt to perform procedures that are not included in this Guide.

3.2 Laser Safety


This section applies to the Automatic, Semi-Automatic and Manual variants.
CAUTION: Use of controls or adjustments, or performance of procedures other than those specified herein, may result in hazardous radiation exposure.

Since the Luxel CTP uses lasers it is labelled as a Class I laser product when all the covers are closed. While the covers are opened and the interlocks defeated, the machine is a Class IIIB laser source. Light is emitted in the violet spectrum at 405 nm. Maximum power output from the laser source is classified as Class IIIB.

3.2.1 Manual Shutter Control


A manually-operated safety shutter is fitted on the periscope assembly (laser power detector) and is closed to prevent laser beams entering the drum. See Figure 3.1 below on how to open and close the shutter.

3.2.2 General Laser Warnings


Laser light, because of its special properties, poses safety hazards not associated with other light sources. The use of lasers requires that all service engineers and everybody near the laser system, are aware of the dangers involved. Laser safety depends on the engineer being familiar with the instrument and the properties of coherent, intense beams of light. Laser beams can ignite volatile substances, such as alcohol or other solvents and damage light-sensitive elements in, for instance, photodiodes. Reflected beams can also cause damage. Note the following laser radiation warnings:
WARNING: Never look directly into a laser beam. This could cause serious damage and possible blindness.

VOLUME 1 (3-4) S ERVICING S AFETY P RACTICE

When working on a Class IIIB laser source, always wear goggles capable of attenuating the beam to a Class II level if there is the slightest risk of direct reflection The voltages used in the laser circuits, and power supplies, are potentially hazardous. Exercise extreme caution while servicing the platesetter with its interlocked covers removed. Never place a mirror or other reflective material in the laser beam. This action can reflect hazardous light to others working in the general area.

Laser current and beam power are always set at the factory from the optics NVRAM parameters supplied with each laser or as part of a laser upgrade/ replacement procedure. If a laser needs replacing, only the recommended parameters given in the supplied datasheet are entered. These parameters include maximum power levels that need to be set for the laser. Do not power up the platesetter with a laser disconnected. Remove the protective lid of the optics base only in accordance with the instructions given in the service procedure. Attenuating laser safety goggles must be used where there is a risk of direct reflection from a laser beam. Where there is no such danger, and when observing diffused reflected spots from screens and targets, it is permissible to work without attenuating laser safety goggles. Extreme care must be taken when working with lasers. The protective cover of the laser module should never be removed.

3.2.3 Safety Warnings


Laser safety warnings must at all times comply with local and national regulations. While the laser is being serviced, it may be necessary to operate the platesetter with certain covers removed and the safety interlocks over-ridden using the approved method shown in Volume 3 Section 1.2. Under these circumstances, only the service engineer shall be in the Designated Laser Area (DLA). The DLA may be a room, a curtained area, or a purpose-built DLA tent.

3.2.3.1 A DLA Room


All other personnel should be warned of the hazard by: A laser warning notice attached to the door(s) leading to the room. An example is shown in Figure 3.2. A red warning light, positioned above the door(s) leading to the room, illuminated whenever there is a laser radiation hazard, see Volume 2 Section 6.7.

3.2.14 Dust Prevention


To avoid dust contamination of the machine, it is important to restrict to a minimum any operation with covers, lids or doors removed or open.

3.2.15 Electrical Safety


WARNING: Do not remove panels, lids or covers, unless instructed to do so by this or other related manuals. Hazardous mains voltages are present behind panels.

Regularly verify that mains supply cables are not worn or damaged. Make sure that water and other liquids do not come into contact with the equipment. Do not attempt to operate the equipment when flammable or volatile substances are present in the atmosphere. Avoid leaving electrical cables trailing where anyone may trip over them.

3.2.16 Mechanical Safety


WARNING: .Do not attempt to lift heavy equipment or assemblies by yourself.

The following basic precautions apply to the platesetter system. More specific mechanical safety risks, when the safety interlocks are over-ridden, are described in Section 3.5. Always close and lock equipment access covers to prevent internal access from the service side of the Engine, PTM and on the Autofeeder. The platesetter consists of assemblies that are excessively heavy for one engineer to lift. If a replacement or installation procedure requires that one of these assemblies needs to be moved or lifted at any point, then make sure assistance is available. The platesetter has a number of motor-driven moving parts that could present a risk to the service engineer. Make sure you are familiar with the main areas of danger listed below, and how to carry out a recommended service procedure when the interlocks are over-ridden.

3.2.17 Chemical Safety


The guidelines below must be followed when storing or handling highly flammable liquids. Store bulk supplies in a metal cabinet marked with a `flammable liquid' label of an approved design. For use in the work area, decant the liquid to a container with a maximum capacity of 250 mL. The use of a safety dispenser is recommended. Do not use the liquid near to non-flameproofed electrical equipment. Do not use the liquid near to a naked flame. DO NOT SMOKE.

3.2.18 Spinner Safety


3.2.18.1 Moving Parts Safety
While the interlocks are over-ridden, a high-speed spinner mirror presents a danger for the service engineer.
NOTE: At idle speed, spinner rotation is a direct multiple of some interior lighting frequencies. This could make the spinner mirror appear as stationary. WARNING: The spinner rotates at very high speeds and can cause serious injury if accidentally touched. Make sure the spinner has stopped rotating before accessing a drum with the interlocks defeated.

Use the Main Diagnostics (diagnostics/service/spinner/stop) command to halt the spinner.

3.2.18.2 Acoustic Noise Safety


While the spinner is running and the covers on the Engine are removed, there is a sound level of up to 65 dBA.
WARNING: Always use appropriate ear protection devices before working on or around a rotating spinner.

3.3 Safety Interlocks (All Variants)


This section applies to all variants. See Volume 2 Figure 9.10 and Volume 2 Section 6.3.3 which describes the interlock system. The platesetter system includes two safety control facilities for protecting the operator and engineer from mechanical, laser and electrical hazards. These are: An interlocked cover system on the covers and doors used by the operator. See Volume 2 Section 6.4 describing the controls and wiring, and Section 3.3.1 showing the location of the covers. Note that the covers on the service side and Autofeeder are locked and must only opened by a FFEI-approved and trained engineer. An emergency stop system for the operator to rapidly switch off power to all motors, the laser and spinner. See Section 3.4.

WARNING: If the platesetter has to be run with a cover open and the interlocks overridden, extreme care must be taken to avoid the following hazards: rotating spinner, laser beam, moving plate motors. All unqualified personnel must be prohibited from the area, while the machine is in the overridden state and the Laser Safety Officer informed. NOTE: The cassette door is part of the elevator interlock system. Controlled from the MMI, the door lock switches off the elevator motor when it is opened.

Use the approved method (key-switch) for over-riding the interlocks. The switch is located behind the Engine (service side) cover, with the facility explained in Volume 3 Section 1.1. Once the interlocks are defeated, there are a number of hazards that the service engineer needs to be aware of before starting an installation or service procedure.

3.3.2 Locked Covers


All covers fitted on the service side of the Engine and PTM, and all covers on the Autofeeder are locked with screw fixings described in Volume 3 Section 1.3. After completing a service visit, make sure that the removed covers are securely locked again. This is to ensure that the operator can only access plates from the openings shown in the Operator and Safety Manuals.

3.4 Emergency Stop Circuit


This section applies to Automatic and Manual variants. See also Volume 2 Section 6.3.3 which describes the emergency stop circuit. Emergency stop switches are accessible on the: PTM (Automatic) - see Figure 3.18. Engine (Manual) - see Figure 3.19. As soon as the stop switch is pressed, an emergency relay immediately removes all electrical supply to the laser, traverse and plate handling mechanisms. Emergency stops are fuse-protected and are only able to be overridden by an approved service engineer.

When pressed, the two emergency stop buttons, located on the top of the PTM, automatically remove AC power to the system (except for the mains filter and interlock box). This facility is operated if there is an immediate risk of human injury or machine damage and is reset to allow the supply of AC voltage after the emergency has been cleared. The emergency stop circuit control is housed in the interlock box and operates as follows:
1. While the system is operating normally, the 240 VAC mains input supply to

the RFI box, vacuum pumps and elevators generates a 24 VDC steady current to a contactor coil on the emergency safety contactor. The contactor (type 1026-1BB40) is closed while DC supply is available.

2. Pressing on the stop button opens the 24 V circuit at the PTM, de-energises

the coil which opens the two contacts (live and neutral) for the AC supply to the RFI box, PTM and Autofeeder. A drop in voltage to the circuit breaker is sensed and causes the breaker to switch off.

3. Engineers also have the option of removing AC via the safety isolators at the

3.5 Mechanical Safety


This section details the main mechanical areas of risk for the service engineer when the covers are removed and the interlocks are defeated.

3.5.1 At the Autofeeder (Automatic Only)


WARNING: Autofeeder mechanisms potentially present a risk of injury from moving assemblies when the interlocks are defeated.

The Autofeeder is an elevator system with a mechanical set of chains and pulleys that move shelves to their required position for online cassette loading. With the top and side covers open, and the interlocks defeated, there are a number of potential hazards for the service engineer to be aware of: hand trapping by a moving chain trap hazard between the elevator and the frame.

3.5.2 At the Plate Transport Module (Automatic Only)


A plate feed mechanism between the Autofeeder and the Engine pulls the cassette forward using two motor-driven arms.

3.5.3 Inside the Drum (All Variants)


A motor-driven push bar moves the plate from the input module to the punch.

3.6 Antistatic Precautions (All Variants)


This section applies to the Automatic, Semi-Automatic and Manual variants.
CAUTION: Do not handle exposed electronics. The components may be electrostatically damaged leading to equipment errors.

The Luxel CTP contains electronic components which are susceptible to static damage. When clearing jams, cleaning a device, or performing routine maintenance tasks, care should be taken not to touch any exposed electronics. Before handling a board, all antistatic precautions must be followed.

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 1 (3-25)

CAUTION: Do not place a board on an unearthed surface after removing it from its protective wrapper. Do not place it on the wrapper, the outside of which could be electrostatically charged.

When removing the board from its antistatic wrapper, take care not to touch any of the board components or connector pins. Use a Fujifilm field service antistatic kit or, if this is not available, a disposable antistatic wrist-strap as detailed in this section.

3.6.1 Field Service Antistatic Kit


See Figure 3.20. The following figure shows the recommended on-site service station using a field service antistatic kit.
CAUTION: Use the disposable antistatic wrist-strap. Failure to do so may result in damage to the board.

A disposable wrist strap is used to connect the engineer to an earthed (ground) point on the equipment (usually the chassis). To achieve this, the wrist strap is adhesive-backed. The equipment must be plugged into an earthed socket (but not switched on) to ensure a path to ground. The main antistatic recommendations are as follows: Always ensure a wrist-strap is connected to earth. Only personnel that are static-protected should touch boards or exposed internal components. Any board to be fitted should be kept within its antistatic enclosure until needed. If a board is removed, always pack it in an approved static-safe bag and seal the opening to provide a Faraday enclosure.

VOLUME 2 (1-2) P LATESETTER D IAGNOSTICS

Detects system and media handling errors which are reported on an MMI console. Allows the engineer or operator to run a set of automated self-tests for the system (electronics, traverse, etc). Allow the engineer to run tests on media handling devices (sensors, motors, etc) and move discrete mechanisms. Includes a persistent (permanent) set of test images held on the Hard disk and selectable from the MMI. Allows the engineer to access PCB and system configuration files, and edit system configuration data in a registry file whenever there is a hardware or software change. Allows access to the error log files held in Flash memory. Once the application is running, the following diagnostic tools are available:

Main Diagnostics
A suite of tests and utilities for the service engineer. They run under a hierarchical menu system that include global commands. See Section 1.3 and Section 1.6.

MMI Self-Checks
These are a suite of system tests on machine modules (PCBs, motors, optics, etc) that give a pass/fail result. Self-tests are controlled from the MMI and initiated by the engineer or operator. See Section 1.14.

MMI Test Images


A set of persistent images are available for checking image quality and for commissioning the system. See Section 1.5.

MMI Media Tools


A facility on the MMI that allows the operator or engineer to select/park a cassette and advance/eject single plates without scanning. See Section 1.15.

MMI Error Codes


These are a set of codes that appear on an Error handling screen when a subsystem (optics, spinner, traverse, etc) reports an error. See Section 1.5.

1.2 Booting the Platesetter


Figure 1.1 shows the system software sequence for booting up and starting the machine application. See Section 1.5 for details on MMI errors codes and Section 1.4 which describes the tests in more detail.

tem Board. Because all the hardware and mechanical dependencies vary with type of machine configuration, the order of module start-up is resolved locally.

The System Board builds a record of the machine's configuration (board IDs, serial numbers, etc) and checks whether this matches the previous configuration. Configuration data is held in NVRAM. If a platesetter cover is open (with the interlocks enabled), power to all the PCBs is lost except on the System Board, so only a partial initialisation is completed. A plate left in the machine is ejected if the trailing edge has passed BS50; otherwise it is reversed back into the cassette. A cassette left in the PTM is withdrawn into the Autofeeder. Plate processor is checked for connection and on/off status.

Push bar is moved down and up again to check motor operation. Traverse carriage creep is checked by moving the carriage to the user end. Spinner rotates at maximum speed. All the optics motors are checked for home datum positioning and travel limits. Traverse carriage moves back to start of scan position at the service end. laser calibration check commences when the traverse is aligned with the Fast Photo Detect sensor (FPD).

Log Menu
All the software error logs for each node PCB are held in local Flash memory and downloaded to the Hard disk for checking by the engineer.
NOTE: The `Start' and `Standalone' menu options are for R&D use only.

1.4 Introducing Diagnostic Tests


The platesetter performs a set of System self-tests when the Run Diagnostics button on the MMI TOOLS menu or Error Handling menu is pressed. These extended tests include all of the boot-up tests. The SIO online Luxel V/Vx-Series Error Codes Guide describes all the MMI error codes in detail, including the System tests (codes 1000 to 1999)

1.4.1 System Self-Test Error Codes


System tests are run in the following sequence producing the following error codes:

1.4.2 System Self-Test Descriptions


This section describes the following system self-tests that run from the MMI and from Main Diagnostics:

1.4.2.1 ROM Test


This addresses Flash memory and checks data over the data bus. A CRC is performed in two areas of Flash: the boot system and the application system.

1.4.2.2 RAM Test


This checks RAM and data over the data bus. If an error is found a fatal error is flagged.

1.4.2.3 Interrupt Tests


This checks that the interrupt lines to the processor are not held active. If an error is found a fatal error is flagged.

1.4.2.4 Registry Check


This checks if the system configuration has been modified.

1.4.2.5 PSU Voltage Supply Check


The FHMB checks that the +24, +5 and +15 VDC lines are within tolerance.

1.4.2.6 NVRAM Integrity Test


This checks that the configuration files contain data that is specific to the system. The data is compared to a checksum. If the data is corrupt, the data is restored to its default. The engineer can load backup data from the hard disk if default data is not possible.

1.4.2.7 Stepper Motor Tests Datum Tests


This checks that the optics motors Home correctly by driving each motor to its datum position: Focus motor Laser power detector motor Aperture control motor ND filter motor.

Beam converter motor: 1011 Focus motor: 1012 Focus sensor: 1013.

All DC motor assemblies. Error Code: 1007.

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 2 (1-9)

The above motors are driven from the VBOMB. A fatal error is flagged if a motor does not turn or a detector does not respond.

Full Travel Tests


This checks that the optics motors can be stepped freely over the length of the drive rail by driving each motor to its end stop and returning to zero position. The zero position is compared to the datum sensor to check that no steps are missing.

Plate Handling Motors


The plate handling motors for the FHMBs are checked as part of the system selftests.

1.4.2.8 DC Motor Assembly Tests


This checks that the plate handling DC motors move to an initial position, one other position and return again: A fatal error is flagged if no output is detected from the limit sensor after a set period of time. The check cannot determine if the sensor or the motor is at fault.

1.4.2.9 Spinner Checks


This checks that the spinner can run at full and idle speed. It is run at each speed for 30 seconds to check that phase lock is maintained.

1.4.2.10 Optics Checks


The optics stepper motors are checked for home datum position and travel limits. A beam coincidence check is described in Section 1.10.4.1.

1.4.2.11 Output Data Path Checks


This checks the digital data path from the HDD to the serialiser. The serialiser CRC circuit is initialised. A test image is loaded from the disk and the CRC value of its data is read at a point just before the optics base and compared with its known value.

1.4.2.12 Processor Comms Checks


If the Processor operates with the same protocol interface as the platesetter, the check ensures there is a communication connection. A loopback test to verify data output requires a loopback connector to be fitted.

1.4.3 MMI Test Images


When the Run Test Image option is selected from the MMI Maintenance menu, a set of persistent images (PI) on the Engine hard disk drive (HDD) can be chosen as a test output. When selected, the platesetter automatically exposes the image and ejects it. Standard PIs are: Grid for Registration checks Tint at 50 % 4 x S&T CMYK.

VOLUME 2 (1-10) P LATESETTER D IAGNOSTICS

For a platesetter, the image will not adjust to fit whatever plate width is loaded. Exposure levels are set from the most recent calibration settings on the RIP. You can move an image from the RIP to the engine and scan it as a persistent image using the procedure in Section 1.13. Alternatively, you can create an image using a DTP application and download it as a PI to the engine. Test strips are also exposed directly from the Engine (not downloaded from the RIP) using the Service (optics mmi) menu.

1.5 Describing MMI Error Codes


1.5.1 Types of Errors
See the SIO online Luxel V/Vx-Series Error Codes Guide for a list of code descriptions and recovery steps for the service engineer. Errors and their recovery procedures for the user are explained in the Luxel Platesetter Operator's Manual. Error codes appear on an MMI Error Handling screen whenever a machine or a plate transport failure is detected. Errors are one of two types: FATAL: these faults prevent the platesetter from operating. When a fatal error occurs, the operator should follow a recommended recovery procedure. Failure of the machine to recover automatically will cause the same Error Handling screen to reappear. NON-FATAL: these are temporary faults that should not prevent the machine from operating but may have caused the current image to fail. The system will continue to scan other images on the queue. Non-fatal errors are also cause by system alerts calling for maintenance attention. Fatal and non-fatal error codes are arranged into the following groups:
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

Optics: 100 - 199. Optical module and alignment errors. Traverse: 200 - 299. Traverse errors. Spinner: 300 - 399. Spinner errors. (Note that error group 400 to 499 is reserved). Environment: 500 - 599. Temperature, chad tray and cover errors. Input Data Controller: 600 - 699. IDC errors on image data from the RIP server to the HDD. Output Data Path: 700 - 799. OPD errors on image data from the HDD to the optics base module. (Note that error group 800 to 899 is reserved). Media Processor: 900 - 999. Processor and comms link errors to the Engine. Diagnostic Self Tests: 1000 - 1999. Diagnostic error reports run from the MMI. Media Transport: 1200 - 1299. General media transport control errors.

10. Elevator: 1300 - 1399. Elevator errors. 11. Plate Feed (PTM): 1500 - 1599. Module and media jam errors on the PTM. 12. Input Module: 1600 - 1699. Module and media jam errors on the input mod-

ule.

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 2 (1-11)

13. Drum: 1700 - 1799. Punch, push bar, registration, chad tray, centering and

vacuum errors.

14. Output Module and Buffer: 1800 - 1899. Module and media jam errors on

and around the Buffer and output module.

NOTE: The enabled error codes depend on the machine variant and configuration.

1.5.2 Fatal Error Closedown Sequence


Detected FATAL errors force the system into a controlled state that allows the machine to recover automatically and provide adequate information for the operator or service engineer to fault-find. As soon as a FATAL error occurs, the system starts an automatic set of controlled closedown operations that leave the machine in a state where remaining plates are not at risk of accidental `fogging'. After a closedown has finished, the machine is in a safe state for the operator to access the problem area. Closedown operations are described fully in the Luxel V/Vx-Series Error Codes Engineer's Guide available on SIO.

1.5.3 Error Logging


If a fatal error occurs it is automatically logged on the HDD as an error log (Elog) file called elogNew.txt. Note that the name is case-sensitive. Alternatively, an Elog file can be generated (and saved to disk) at any prompt in the diagnostic/service menu by entering:
elog [Return]

You can view and capture an Elog file for further analysis by:
1. List all the files on the HDD by entering:
dfs> ls

2. Scroll down to find the elogNew.txt file. 3. Enter the R&D menu from the main> prompt (password boxer.dev). 4. Enter the following:
streams [Return]

5. Enable Hyperterminal text capture from the Transfer menu and type more off

to avoid the need to keep pressing the spacebar.


read general/elogNew.txt

6. To display the file, enter:

1.5.4 Using the SaveLog Utility


The current set of NVRAM parameters and logged statistics for assessing machine history can be transferred as a file from the Engine HDD to a floppy disk on the RIP PC.

1. Make a note of the pathname to the RIP PC floppy drive. 2. Run this facility from the Windows Start menu as (or equivalent):

1.6 How to Use Main Diagnostics


Main Diagnostics is designed to provide a set of tests (go/no go) and useful utilities for rapid confirmation of the system's operation. If you encounter any problems while running Main Diagnostics, call FFEI Customer Support (UK).

1.6.1 Setting up a Terminal Window


Main Diagnostics are run from any terminal (PC, laptop, RIP server, etc) that is able to present a HyperTerminal or VT100 type emulation window. These utilities and tests are embedded on the System PCB allowing the service engineer to enter diagnostic commands and read return data from the main modules. Before commencing Main Diagnostics, check that: an RS232 connection from the terminal to the RFI box (DIAGS port) is fitted. the platesetter is switched on. Use the following method to set up the communications link between the platesetter and a HyperTerminal on the RIP server.
1. 2.

Open a terminal window from the desktop Start button: Set the Properties options for the platesetter comms link to the terminal as follows:

Connect: COM1 or 2 Settings: Autodetect Configuration: 9600 bits per sec; 8 data bits; None parity; 1 Stop bit; No flow control.

3.

If you need to transfer scrolled text to a selected file from the HyperTerminal window, switch on the Capture Text from the Transfer menu.

To obtain a suitable width for the terminal window, set the Properties, Terminal Settings box to 132 column mode.
NOTE: You may need to uncheck and recheck the 132 column mode box for this setting to take effect.

Valid passwords are issued from FFEI Customer Support (UK).

1.6.3 Entering Diagnostic Commands


There are two types of command: those which directly select tests or utilities those which select another group (or sub-menu) of commands and have the suffix
/.. When a command is entered, the screen displays all the available command options.

To navigate between menus, enter the command name and press Return to move down a menu level, or .. Return to move up a menu level. After entering the first two or three letters of a command from any prompt and pressing the [Tab] key, the remainder of the command name is displayed. Where a boxed list shows `More ->', press the [Tab] [Tab] to display the additional commands. The screen needs to be in unboxed mode before the commands are listed. Other commands require extra parameters to be entered in the form of numbers or letters. If a command is not entered without the required parameter(s), a `USAGE' message appears showing a list of valid parameters for the command. Commands can be invoked using its pathname; for instance, Diagnostics> service/
optics/laser.

VOLUME 2 (1-14) P LATESETTER D IAGNOSTICS

1.6.4 Using Global Commands


Global commands do not appear in the menu structure and are displayed with the Help command. They can be entered regardless of the current menu position. All the global commands, along with the menu items available for the current menu level, are displayed as a list by typing
help [Return] or [?] [Return]

To select a command, type its name, followed by:


[Return] or [Enter]

The global commands and their functions are shown in Table 1.1. Note the following: All diagnostics commands are case independent. For example, HELP, help or HeLp, all select the same command. Diagnostics commands can be abbreviated. For example, to select the Help command you can enter h, he, hel or help. You can enter the first few letters of a command and press [Tab] to finish the entry. If several commands begin with the same letters, then sufficient letters must be typed to make the selection unique. For example, if there are two commands, help and hello and he is entered, the system responds with a command entry error. Some commands can be modified by adding subsidiary commands. For example, enter:
soak soe

and the soak command is modified so that it Stops On an Error. Certain commands require responses to questions.

1.6.5 Using Verbose


The verbose command controls the messages appearing on the Log file during soak tests. On its own, this command reports the status of the Verbose function (on or off). Use verbose on and verbose off to switch the function on and off respectively. When Verbose is on, all messages are displayed and messages beginning with: **, --, ++ and ^^ are logged to RAM (if RAM logging is enabled).
NOTE: Only error messages (indicated with**) are logged to Flash memory.

When Verbose is off, only error messages are displayed and logged to application, RAM or Flash.
NOTE: For troubleshooting, always select the Verbose ON option.

VOLUME 2 (1-16) P LATESETTER D IAGNOSTICS

1.6.6 Running Soak Tests


The soak command runs all tests that are soak enabled in all sub-menus below the current level. Tests and sub-menus that are soakable are indicated by an S suffix to the command name. If the S is in bold, the test is enabled. If the S is not bold, the test is not enabled. To soak all soakable tests and sub-menus, use the soak command. By selecting the diagnostics will run each soakable test once and will stop when an error occurs.
soak soe

To soak more than once, use: soak x where x is the required number of repetitions. To soak an individual test or sub-menu, enter soak x name, where x is the name of the test or sub-menu and name is the number of repeats. To select the stop-on-error code use the suffix soe. For example, soak 10 soe initiates a soak on all enabled tests 10 times and the tests will stop on any error
** An error stopped the soak test! [test name] To stop a soak test press [Ctrl-c].

If a soak test fails and the stop-on-error (SOE) flag has been set, then a message is displayed on the monitor: where [test name] is the name of the test which failed. To select the loop-on-error code use the suffix loe. For example soak 10 loe initiates a soak on all enabled tests 10 times and the tests will loop indefinitely on any error. The enable command enables soak tests. Individual tests can be enabled. For example enable test3 enables command Test3 for soak testing. If enable all is entered then every command in all sub-menus will be enabled. The disable command disables soak tests. Individual tests can be disabled. For example disable test3 disables command Test3 for soak testing. If disable all is entered then every command in all submenus will be disabled. Test results can be logged to application, RAM, or Flash memory for subsequent examination.
time_stamp.

Time information can be optionally added to the error log using the command Temperature information may be also added to the error log using the command temp_stamp.

1.6.6.1 Using the Debug Utility


The Debug utility allow you to switch diagnostic information on/off for each of the machine software tasks and display the sequence of events as they occur on the system.

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 2 (1-17)

1.6.6.2 Using Script Commands


A script allows you to create a sequence of Main commands and parameters and run them as an executable file. This facility means that you can generate useful repetitive routines without having to constantly re-enter command lines. All scripts are held in a separate script file.

recordscript
Use recordscript to create a new script, for example, `sol':
recordscript sol actuators/set 10 on time/sleep 150 actuators/set v 10 off time/sleep 100 script end (Ctrl-X adds this line automatically)

You can use any of the commands and parameters detailed in this chapter. Type [Ctrl-x] to terminate the script and the line `script end' appears.

showscript
Displays the text of a specified or the currently loaded script, for example, showscript sol

runscript
Executes the currently loaded script or a specified script, for example:
runscript sol.

To run a script more than once, enter, for instance:


repeat sol 12

deletescript
Deletes the latest copy of a script name from the script file, for example:
deletescript sol

listscripts
Lists all the scripts available in the script file.

zeroscripts
Erases all scripts in the scripts file.

1.6.6.3 Obtaining Command Line Help

1.11 Checking Config and NVRAM Data


1.11.1 Introducing Configuration Data Files
Configuration (Config) data for all the CAN node boards (System board, VBOMB, STB and FHMBs), the overall system and the NVRAM for each board are held on the platesetter as four types of files:
1. 2. 3.

Board Configs: data files (board serial number, etc) for each node board. System Configs: System data (System ID, etc). System Registry: board configuration data that needs to be updated if a hard-

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 2 (1-61)

ware or software change is made.


4. NVRAM: current parameters copied from the System board to the Hard

disk.

The platesetter stores copies of the configuration data files on the System Board and Hard Disk (HDD) as backup data. Useful data for board IDs, revision and history are copied from the Config files and held on a System Registry file that allows service engineers to check and record changes of the system configuration. Figure 1.11 outlines the organisation of the data files and the type of data they store. Service engineers are able to replace node boards with new boards that have different revision levels, download new versions of firmware, update the system registry and run registry checks to ensure that the various versions of hardware and software installed on the system are compatible. If a System board is being replaced, its NVRAM parameters can be copied onto the Hard disk, and restored to the new board, see Section 1.11.7.

1.11.2 Board Config Files


Each CAN node board (System Board, VBOMB, STB, FHMB1 to 4) stores the following board data (as a maximum number of characters) in a local Board Config file:

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 2 (1-63)

1.11.2.1 ID Data

1.11.2.2 History Data

From each board, Config data is passed to the System Board for storage as sets of multiple records that are displayable as ASCII data. In the case of History records, the last entry is shown first for up to 20 entries. This data can be accessed by the service engineer either for information purposes or for updating whenever the configuration of the board is changed. The current Config data for each board is displayed on a terminal from Main diagnostics after obtaining the Registry menu as follows:
diagnostics> tests sysdiag> registry registry> display_registry board

1.11.3 System Config Files


In addition to the multiple board Config data files, the System Board also holds a similar set of system data files.System config data shows which boards make up the system, allowing the engineer to track board changes. System config data is held separately on the System Board and HDD as the following items:

1.11.3.1 ID Data

1.11.3.2 Revision Data 1.11.3.3 History Data

VOLUME 2 (1-64) P LATESETTER D IAGNOSTICS

For revision data the last 10 system changes are tracked and the last 6 system configurations are stored.

1.11.4 System Registry Files


The System Registry is a set of Config data files for all the node boards in the platesetter and is held on System Board Flash memory, with a copy automatically generated on the HDD. Its purpose is to provide a quick view to the current software, firmware and hardware status of each board, and also the history of any changes made to the software and hardware in the system. Each board has a set of board data files comprising an ID file, a Revision file and a History file, see Section 1.11.4 for details of the ID Data, Revision data and History Data. The History file is automatically updated when the Revision file is changed. Whenever software, firmware or hardware is changed on the system, the engineer must update the System Registry. The next time the system is booted up, the ID, Revision and History files in all of the node boards are compared with the same files in the System Registry by a utility called 'Reg_Powerup' held in the Registry directory. If a difference between any two files is detected, a warning symbol appears (Error Code 1005) on the MMI. This is a non-fatal error allowing the system to continue scanning; however, it will reappear until the registry has been updated using the utility 'Update_Registry', see Section 1.11.7. The current System Registry on the System Board is displayed from Main Diagnostics after obtaining the registry menu:
diagnostics> tests sysdiag> registry registry> display_registry system

1.11.5 HDD Data Files


Hard Disk Drive (HDD) configuration data, held as backup files, is interchangeable with the data on the System Board. Configuration data is held on the HDD in four file areas:
1. 2. 3. 4.

details of change date of change ID of engineer that made the change.

generalmp.txt: temporary data from System Registry on the System Board used for checking compatibility levels after a board or software change. generalegsyslog.txt: a copy of the System Registry on the System Board. generalysconfig.txt: system configuration data from the System Board. generalysnvram.bin: all the NVRAM values from each board are stored via the System Board.

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 2 (1-65)

NOTE: The registry data held on the HDD will only be different to that stored on the System Board if either one has been replaced.

The current registry data held on HDD is displayed on Main diagnostics after obtaining the registry menu as follows:
diagnostics> tests sysdiag> registry registry> display_registry HDD

1.11.6 NVRAM Data


NVRAM values, held by the System Board, are stored for backup on the Hard disk. Engineers can save and restore NVRAM values between the System board and the HDD. The Save and Restore functions are available after obtaining the Configuration menu by entering:
diagnostics> log_utils log_utils> configuration configuration> save _nvram

The Save command takes all the NVRAM board files and copies them to HDD.
configuration> restore _nvram NOTE: Avoid using the command `restore board' unless you are sure the NVRAM configuration on the HDD is the correct version.

1.11.7 Updating the System Registry


If a node board is replaced, or new software is downloaded, then the System Registry data on the System Board and HDD must be updated and checked for hardware/software incompatibilities, see Section 1.11.7.2. This is automatically carried out by the check, Reg_powerup, that automatically runs when the system is booted up after the change. The Reg_powerup test can also be run as an explicit command from:
registry>reg_powerup

The result from this test is either: A compatibility failure shown as an Error Handling screen on the MMI with an Error code of 1005. A pass allowing the MMI scan mode screen to appear. If a software change is made, the registry test is completed and (if successful) allows the system to enter scan mode Where there are non-software changes, then the test will automatically fail requiring the engineer to update the registry using the Update_registry utility, see Section 1.11.7.2. If the System Board or HDD are replaced, data from one device is automatically copied to the new device. However, a problem occurs when both the HDD and System Board are changed. In this case, note the system configuration details and update the registry with the new serial, build and final test data, see Section 1.11.7.2.

because they not deleted after imaging. If the HDD is reformatted, make sure that these images are restored to the PC and downloaded to the Engine. You can download any RIP image as a PI but note that too many PI files on the HDD are likely to mean a smaller page buffer for normal jobs. Use the following procedure to create a PI image:
1. 2.

Close the RIP application. Open the File Manager and search for the file `output.cml' from the Windows Find file option. The default pathname is:
Program Files/Fujifilm Electronic Imaging/output.cml

Open the file with any editor (Notepad, etc).


3.

At the end of the file, add a new line as:


ImageName="xxxxx" (without spaces

where "xxxxx" is any text name.)

4. 5.

Save the file and close down the File Manager. Open the RIP Application again and select a job that you wish to use as a PI image. This is normally a typical customer job or a large image that can be used for testing purposes. Download the job to the Engine and check in the Log that it has not exposed. If it has started to expose, then it will not appear as a PI image.

6. 7. 8. 9.

Check from the MMI that the image name has appeared on the Run Test in the TOOLS menu. Shutdown the RIP application. Make sure the entered text line in the `output.cml' file is removed or is converted into a comment. To convert into a comment add:
Rem ImageName="xxxxx"

1.13.2 Deleting and Editing a PI (Celebrant RIP)


1.

Enter the following Main Diagnostics menu:


service/disk> dfs

and delete the five files for each PI image: odd, even, id, jd and erl. Use the command rm to remove each file.
2.

To edit a PI, enter:


service/image_mgr> editjob XXXXX

1.13.3 Creating a PI (Rampage RIP)


1. 2. 3. 4.

Edit the environment variable, JOB_NAME, to page name, where the page name is the name of the PI image. Put the page in the plot queue. Note that this page will download to the Engine HDD but will not image. Reset the environment variable to the next page name and follow step 2) above. When all the pages have been downloaded, delete the environment variable,

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 2 (1-69)

exit from the Rampage Shooter application and restart the application. If the media size is smaller than the PI a possible Shooter error could appear. To avoid this problem, resize the image from the diagnostics image_mgr utility making sure that the parameter field media name is left blank. This will ensure that the PI images on any sized plate.

1.14 Running MMI Self-Tests


MMI System Self-tests are run from the TOOLS menu to check devices on all the modules, except for the Processor. These diagnostic tests are described in Section 1.5 on page 1-10. Run the tests as follows:
1. Once the Image Not Downloading icon appears on the TOOLS screen, select

PLATE HANDLING CONTROL


This chapter introduces the main plate handling modules and how they control the movement of plates through the system.

2.1 Plate Handling Control Modules


This section briefly introduces the main plate handling control assemblies for all Luxel platesetter variants and shows their approximate location.

2.1.1 Autofeeder
Figure 2.1 outlines the main Autofeeder control assemblies and their connections. The Autofeeder consists of a frame cage, and an elevator with five cassette shelves that move up and down as a cassette plate type is selected for forwarding. Overall control of the Autofeeder and elevator movements is from FHMB2, with AC motor drive fed through from the Engine. A separate interlock mechanism ensures AC power to the elevator motor is switched off when:

2.2 Plate Handling Assemblies


This section describes the standard assemblies used to control the transport of plates for all modules: Plate handling sensors: see Section 2.2.1. Plate handling motor and solenoids: see Section 2.2.2.

2.2.1 Plate Handling Sensors


Plate handling sensors are mainly used to initiate on/off switching for a plate handling motors, indicate a plate jam or check for mechanical limits. There are five types of sensors typically used on the platesetter:
1. Opto-reflective switch: flags the exact position of a plate leading/trailing edge

on the media path.

2. Reflective/diffused: senses reflective light (plate) or diffused light (paper). 3. Opto-slotted switch: detects a limit tab on a motor-driven mechanism. 4. Micro-switch: opens and closes by a moving mechanism. 5. Inductive: detects the metallic or non-metallic presence of plates or paper.
NOTE: The method of removing and replacing these sensors is very similar. A description is given in Volume 3 Section 2.1.1.

2.2.1.1 Opto-Reflective Sensors


These are opto switches which emit light and detect the same light from a reflective surface. The sensor output is +5V when light is reflected back to the detector (reflective plate is present). The sensor output is 0V when light is not reflected (reflective plate is not present). Note that these levels are inverted for software purposes at the sensor registers. Light emitted from opto-reflective sensors used in the plate handling paths are

switched on and off by a train of pulses to reduce any fogging of the plate. They are typically switched on for 200 microseconds and off for 3 ms. While a plate is stationary, the sensors are turned off to reduce the risk of `fogging'. Where this type of sensor is not used for detecting plates it is not pulsed. Opto-reflective sensors detect a change of reflected light from a surface or a passing edge. They are especially useful for determining plate presence and lengths along a path, and are generally very sensitive to plate angle and distance. Fixings and mountings for these sensors are mechanically set on the platesetter so that you only need to ensure that a replacement is fitted in exactly the same position as the old device. On replacement, reflective sensors may require calibration to find the minimum level of LED drive to allow detection. Normally, a replacement setup is not required. Voltage supply to the sensor is set at +5 VDC and the type of switching is:
A) B) C)

Plate Not Detected = LOW output. Plate Detected = HIGH output. Fault Condition = OFF.

Opto-reflective sensors are fitted on the Cassette ID, the Opto-Reflective Sensor PCB and the Paper Plate Sensor PCB:

Cassette ID PCB:
Sensors read the reflective ID codes (1-31) on the cassette once it is advanced to the feed head.
A) B)

Light not Detected = ON Voltage supply: 4.5 to 16 VDC

On fitting opto-reflective sensors, note the following:


1. 2. 3.

As the angle of the sensor to the plate increases, the detection distance reduces. The plate angle for the reflective underside should be >45 with an allowable sensing range of 4 to12 mm. The emulsion side gives a more diffused reflection with a decrease in maximum detection distance. This effect is even more evident with interleaf paper. For emulsion side and interleaf paper, the allowable sensing range is 4 mm to 8 mm.

Opto-Reflective Sensor PCB:


This PCB (called Reflective-Opto) mechanically houses the sensor device and detects the arrival of plate at set points on the media path, see Figure 2.10. The PCB houses a single sensor and includes a cathode with two parallel resistors in series.

This PCB is similar to the Reflective-opto PCB and is used to detect the presence of a plate or interleaf sheet. The PCB is calibrated at the factory using an onboard potentiometer. Adjustments should not be made once the device is fitted.

2.2.1.2 Opto-Slotted Sensors


These sensors are used by the software to detect the position of a mechanism, notably for travel limit sensing or position detection. A small vane, fixed to the moving mechanism, interrupts the slot light, indicating to the software the current position of the mechanism. Opto (or interrupt) switches emit and detect light between two integral posts. The sensor output is +5 VDC when light is detected (vane is not interrupting a light beam). The sensor output is 0 VDC when light is not detected (vane is interrupting a light beam).

2.2.1.3 Reflective/Diffused Sensor


These sensors operate as an integral emitter and a detector for detecting whether light has been reflected from the plate surface (without the interleave paper) or diffused (when the interleaf has failed to be removed). Examples of these sensors are:

Voltage supply to the reflective/diffused sensor is set at +24 VDC. The sensor output is attenuated on the +24 V Distribution PCB before being passed as a +5 V signal to the FHMB. These sensors are setup for correct detection.

2.3 Plate Handling Operation and Sequence


This section describes the operation of each module as plates are conveyed towards the Processor. Refer to Section 2.3.1 for a description of how motors and sensors operate during a plate transfer.

2.3.0.1 Autofeeder Operation


See also Figure 2.2 and Section 2.3.1.1.
NOTE: This sequence applies to fully-automatic platesetters with and without a punch.

The Autofeeder module allows the operator to load and install optionally 1-to-5 cassettes that are automatically selected by the RIP, depending on the job and plate type required. Each cassette is housed on one of the shelves tiered inside an elevator frame that moves up and down under the control of the RIP job selections or the operator. Plates are loaded into cassettes in a safelight area and conveyed to the Autofeeder on a trolley. Normally, cassettes are ALWAYS located on a trolley or on an Autfeeder shelf to avoid being lifted manually. Two front corner buffers on the trolley have magnetic pins detected by sensors BS77 and BS78 as the trolley docks. If both sensors are actuated, then the trolley is aligned at the door and the docking light turns ON. Plates of one type are loaded into a cassette that has a designated ID number from #01 to #31. When the cassette becomes active (selected by the RIP and advanced to the PTM) the ID is read by a set of photo sensors on the PTM, indicating to the system software the media type and size available for each of the downloaded jobs.

2.3.0.2 PTM Operation


See Figure 2.4 and Section 2.3.1.2.
NOTE: This sequence applies to fully-automatic platesetters with and without a punch.

The two cassette forward arms advance the active cassette towards the feed head and reverse the cassette back into the Autofeeder when it is no longer required. As the cassette moves forward, its front cover lifts up using a ramp and wheel mechanism. Once the cassette is in position under the feed head, the nudger roller drops down to come into contact with the top plate or interleaf sheet. The stack increment lifts and drops the leading edge of the plate stack in increments while checking BS47. The system checks that the cassette is not empty. The nudger drives the plate into the takeaway nip using a combination of friction and normal force. Once detected in the nip, the nudger roller lifts clear and stops. The takeaway roller uses friction and the force of the sprung pad underneath to continue removing the plate or interleaf. In normal operation, if there is more than one plate or interleaf nudged into the takeaway, the retard mechanism uses a sprung slope to `retard' and prevent a multifeed. This works by using the friction of the retard pad surface against the multifed sheet to overcome the friction between the top required sheet and and

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 2 (2-19)

the sheets underneath.

2.3.0.3 Engine Operation


See Figure 2.6 (fully-automatic with punch) and Section 2.3.1.3. For a description of the vacuum/drum blow system, see Volume 2 Section 7.2.
NOTE: For the description below the terms: LE refers to the Leading Edge of a plate. TE refers to the Trailing Edge of the plate.

2.3.0.4 Buffer Operation


See Figure 2.9 and Section 2.3.1.6.
NOTE: This sequence applies to all B1 platesetters with and without a punch.

Scanned plates from the Engine are conveyed (or held in transit) by the Buffer until the Processor clears the previous plate and sends a `READY' command to the Engine. The Buffer band rollers operate at dual speed: fast speed to convey the plate from the output module and slow speed to match the Processor.

This section describes step-by-step how a plate is transported through the platesetter as far as the Processor. For a description of how the Processor operates, refer to the supplied User's Guide. See Figure 2.14 to Figure 2.17 for a flowcart description of plate sequencing for loading, imaging and ejecting. See Volume 2 Section 7.2.3 for a description of the vacuum operation during imaging.

2. Cassette forward arm (BM20, cassette forward) rotates to pick up cassette.

3. Cassette arms rotate (BM20 on) to pull cassette into PTM until BS65 (cassette at
nudger) actuates.

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 2 (2-23)

BS41 (cassette forward limit) actuated indicates an error caused by missing cassette or cassette not installed on shelf. Cassette door on lid opens by ramping up on PTM side plates. Cassette ID read from BS36 to BS40 (cassette ID 1-31).

4. Nudger roller drops down (BM23, nudger lift) and (BS45, nudger down limit).
Retard pad rises (BM25, retard drop, and BS56, retard up) as plate goes forward (past the diverter) and paper is stopped. Retard pad lowers for paper. Nudger roller moves paper until takeaway roller and interleaf roller picks up paper, then nudger roller lifts up. Only one roller moves paper at a time in order to avoid a paper jam.

5. Stack rises (BM21, stack height) at quick speed to raise plates until BS47 (stack
height position) is actuated. Stack drops and rises again slowly to re-actuate BS47. Stack now in correct position. Only one attempt at raising the stack is carried out before a plate feed. BS43 (cassette empty) detects empty or loaded cassette. Empty cassette is moved back to Autofeeder and error code is given.

6. Nudger (BM22, nudger and takeaway) starts to pick top plate or interleaf.

7. While raised, the retard pad operates from a spring and `retards' multifed sheets
from passing through to the takeaway roller. If TE of top plate clears BS48 (nudger detect) and BS49 (retard made) the takeaway motor (BM22) stops. A plate jam causes the retard pad to lower (BS57, retard down).

8. Top LE of plate or interleaf moves (BM22, nudger and takeaway) towards


diverter. BS48 and BS49 are read. If BS48 and BS49 are not detected after timeout, stack is raised slightly (once only). If BS48 and BS49 are still not detected, then an error code is given.

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 2 (2-25)

9. Plate passes BS49 and nudger (BM22) is stopped then lifted (BM23, nudger lift
and BS46, nudger up limit). Takeaway roller is in contact with interleaf or plate. Takeaway roller (BM22, nudger and takeaway) and interleave drive (BM24) advance interleaf. Diverter in Home (up) position (BV20 off).

10. Interleaf sheet: BS66 (interleave nip clear) or BS53 (paper tensioner) are actuated
as interleaf drives down into waste bin. BS50 (plate at pre-diverter) is not actuated by interleaf sheet. BS66 indicates TE of sheet clearing drive. BS53 operates as lazy loop sensor to stop interleave drive if paper tightens. BS53 actuated for 2.0 second pauses interleaf drive motor for 0.1 second. The sequence is repeated until BS66 (interleave nip clear) indicates TE of sheet. Nudger and takeaway (BM22) stops while interleaf drive (BM24, interleave drive) remains on for 3 seconds.

VOLUME 2 (2-26) P LATE H ANDLING C ONTROL

11. Plate: BS50 (plate at pre-diverter) actuated to indicate a plate, diverter drops

down (BV20, diverter) and plates are driven by takeaway roller (BM22) towards BS59 (plate past diverter). Interleave drive stops (BM24, interleave drive). BS51 (paper past-diverter top), and BS55 (paper past-diverter under) for paper detect paper only. Leading edge of plate at BS50 starts air knife. Trailing edge of plate passes BS55 stops air knife.

12. LE of plate reaches BS52 (park position) and input module rollers (BM1, friction
and band input) start if drum is clear of previous plate. If interleaf is under takeaway it is cleared into the bin. If a plate is still under takeaway roller, it is held at BS50 (plate at pre-diverter). Any errors in the drum causes nudger motor to reverse plate back into cassette and reverse cassette into Autofeeder. Plate TE moves past diverter which returns to Home up position.

See Figure 2.2 and Figure 2.4. This section describes how a cassette is returned to the Autofeeder when a new

type of plate is required.

1. If there is a plate in the drum, it is ejected.

2. System checks if BS49 (retard made) is on or off.


If BS49 (and BS48) is on, the system assumes there is still paper at the top of the stack and starts to feed it towards the diverter and waste bin. If instead BS50 (plate at diverter) detects a plate being fed from the stack, the nudger motor reverses and puts the plate back into the stack.

3. Stack increment lowered to Home position (BS44 on), nudger to up (BS46 on)

2.3.1.8 Recovering from Plate Errors (Fully-Automatic)


See Figure 2.2 and Figure 2.4. An auto-recovery procedure returns the top plate automatically from the feed head to the cassette if there is a fatal error. Note the following:

The purpose of the auto-recovery procedure is to ensure that only the minimum number of plates (one or less) is fogged if the operator has to carry out a manual plate recovery.

1. The MMI displays a fatal Error Handling screen. 2. Retard pad and nudger roller is lowered.

3. Nudger roller (BM22, nudger and takeaway) reverses direction.


Step 2. in Section 2.3.1.7 is completed. If the leading edge of the top plate has not passed BS59 (plate past diverter), it is pushed back into the cassette (that is, a plate recovery procedure is not attempted if the plate is too far into the feeder).

the top plate only returns if the fatal error has been caused elsewhere in the system the cassette is reversed back into the elevator if there is still a plate in the drum then it is ejected.

VOLUME 2 (3-4) P LATE H ANDLING M ODULES

Sensors and motors used: BS77, BS78 (Docking). Cassette: consists of a removeable lid with a plate access door that opens automatically as the cassette is advanced towards the PTM. Plates of a single type and size are loaded onto a platen and secured by sliding guides that lock into position. See the Luxel Platesetter Operator's Manual for more information on how to load and install a cassette. Each cassette has a dedicated ID number (from 1 to 31) that is sensed at the PTM as the active cassette for the media and cassette database on the Engine. Sensors and motors used: BM28, BS63, BS70, BM28 (Z-direction); BS 43 (Cassette Empty); BS 36 to 40 (Cassette ID1-5). Elevator: a multi-cassette (5) system uses fixed shelves on an elevator frame that moves up and down under software control. Cassettes are forwarded from the shelf to the feed head assembly as required for a scan job, and reversed back into the shelf when a new plate type is demanded. Shelf positions for software control of elevation are determined by three readhead sensors that detect three vertical vanes, with scaled widths which provide an encoded reading. Sensors and motors used: BS32 to34 (Elevator Shelves); BS 30, BS31 (Elevator Over Top/Bottom); BM26 (Elevator). Z-direction Arm: in a vertical position it operates as a constraining arm to align the cassette to the PTM entry; in a horizontal position it allows access for the cassette to be pushed onto a shelf. It indicates an error if the cassette is not fully pushed in during the shelf install procedure. Sensors and motors used: BS63, BS70 (Direction Up/Down), BM28 (Z-Direction). Control Assemblies: Elevator control is from FHMB 2 and the local Elevator Distribution/Control PCBs.

3.1.3 Plate Transport Module


See Table 3.1 for variant details and Section 3.2 which describes the PTM modules in more detail X-direction Door: this is a flap that moves up to the vertical position when the cassette is installed into the Autofeeder. In the up position, it ensures the cassette follows the shelf runners during a load from the trolley; when down, it allows access to the PTM feed head. The door remains down until a new cassette is installed. Sensors and motors used: BS62, BS71 (Direction Door Down/Up), BM27 (Xdirection Door). Cassette Forward: collects the cassette from the elevator shelf and pulls it towards the feed head; also reverses the cassette back into the shelf. Sensors and motors used: BS41, BS42 (Cassette Forward/Reverse), BS65 (Cassette at Nudger); BM20 (Cassette Forward). Stack Increment: raises the plate stack until BS47 is actuated. If the nudger mis-feeds, it raises the stack in increments of 0.1 mm before the first plate is nudged.

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 2 (3-5)

Sensors and motors used: BS44, BS61 (Stack height Home/Top Limit), BS47 (Stack Height Position); BM21 (Stack Height). Nudger Lift: raises and lowers the nudger roller. Sensors and motors used: BS46, BS45 Nudger Up/Down); BM23 (Nudger Lift). Nudger and Takeaway: both rollers are driven by the same motor. The nudger picks up the top plate/interleaf from the stack and the takeaway nips the plate/interleaf and drives it forward. For jam clearance, the nudger direction is reversed. Sensors and motors used: BS48 (Nudger Detected), BS52 (Park Position); BM22 (Nudger and Takeaway). Retard: a sloped pad, when raised during a plate feed, operates with an adjustable spring mechanism to `retard' multi-fed sheets and prevent them from passing through the takeaway nip roller. Only the required top plate/ interleaf is allowed to pass. During a plate/interleaf jam, the pad is lowered from the takeaway roller to allow the top plate to be nipped back into the cassette by the takeaway roller. Sensors and motors used: BS56, BS57 (Retard up/down); BM25 (Retard Drop). Interleaf Diverter: a solenoid-controlled assembly that is actuated to the down position for a plate and remains in an up position (from a fixed counter weight) when an interleaf is detected. Sensors and motors used: BV20 (Diverter). Interleaf Drive: interleaf sheets are fed from the takeaway and routed by the diverter to the interleaf drive. Two drive rollers move the sheet towards a waste bin. Sensors and motors used: BS53 (Paper Tensioner), BS66 (Interleave Nip Clear); BM24 (Interleave Drive). FHMB (2 and 3): provides local control for the PTM and Autofeeder plate handling mechanisms. Plate Transport Guides: a set of plates on the PTM that provide a surface for plates to slide across. Air Knife: fitted on a fully-automatic machine, the air knife blows a stream of air across the top of a plate as it advances into the engine. This reduces plate dust and contamination entering the drum. Sensors and motors used: BV23 (Air Knife Control).
NOTE: on later machines the air knife is fitted to the Engine instead of the PTM.

3.1.4 Engine
See Table 3.1 for variant details and Section 3.4 for a description of the module assemblies. Input Module: a set of friction rollers and a band roller, driven by a belt, convey plates into the drum. Large plates that are unable to automatically drop into the drum are `jogged' downwards by switching the rollers on/off and moving the push bar up/down.

VOLUME 2 (3-6) P LATE H ANDLING M ODULES

Sensors and motors used: BS1, BS2 (Input Entrance/Exit). Drum: the drum allows the plate to be held and conformed before imaging. A plate is pushed round the lower circumference of the drum by the push bar as far as the registration pins, centered and then punched. Drum vacuum holds the plate in position while scanning occurs. Vacuum grooves on manual and semi-automatic drums have a leading edge and main vacuum zones. Sensors and motors used: BS1, BS2 (Input Entrance/Exit); BM1 (Friction and Band Input). Punch Mechanism (B1 fully-auto only): these are a bridge-type punch that allow the plate to pass through after the registration pins are retracted. Punch build versions for Violet machines are currently New Billows. The punch protocol configuration (Heidelburg, Komori, etc) depends on customer preferences. On fully-automatic machines, the punch mechanism is combined with the centering and registration mechanism as a single replaceable module. Later machines may include the Fuji punch with design modifications to improve chad removal. Sensors and motors used: BS8, BS9 (Punch Motor On/Off), BS3 (Plate in Punch); BM4 (Punch). Centering Mechanism (B1 fully-auto only): centres the plate inside the punch by moving two fingers from the Home position towards each other until the sensor on each finger makes contact with the plate. Mechanical centering only occurs on B1 fully-automatic machines with a punch; all nonpunch machines rely on the edge detect function to ensure the plate is not skewed and the image is started at the correct traverse offset. Sensors and motors used: BS12, BS13 (Centering Detect), BS14 (Centering Home); BM3 (Centering). Registration Mechanism (B1 fully-auto only): a set of motor-activated pins that stop a plate in a reference position for imaging and punching. The pins are withdrawn to allow the passage of the plate to the output module. Sensors and motors used: BS10, BS11 (Registration Motor In/Out); BM5 (Registration Pins Motor). Registration Module (non-punch only): stop the plate in a reference position for imaging. A lack of electrical continuity between the two registration pins and the plate indicates plate skew. An additional Registration Pin Board sets the voltage for electrical continuity. Sensors and motors used: BM36 (Registration Pins), BS100 (Registration Pin Motor Home), BS103 (Registration Pin Motor In). Edge Detect PCB: locates the precise position of the plates horizontal edge in order to determine the start of image position. Swing Roller Module: holds the plate leading edge against the drum surface for imaging. Registration Pin Isolation PCB: used by the plate centering system to isolate the two registration pins from chassis ground. Sensors and motors used: BS104 (Registration Pin Continuity).

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 2 (3-7)

FHMB (1 and 4): provides control for the engine plate handling mechanisms. Transport Push Bar: while inactive, the bar remains in a Home position. The bar moves the plate forward, around the drum, until the leading edge is detected at the reistration pins. After imaging, the bar pushes the plate forward to the output module and then returns to the Home position. Two version of the push bar are available: the Mark 1 which includes a polycarbonate blade and the Mark 2 (Spring) without a blade. Sensors and motors used: BS6 (Push Bar Home), BS15 (Push Bar Forward Limit); BM2 (Push Bar). Output Module: a set of friction and band rollers to convey a plate from the punch to the Buffer. The main assemblies are common assemblies but the output guides differ depending on the variant. Sensors and motors used: BS4, BS5 (Output Entrance/Exit); BM6 (Friction and Band Output). Plate Loading Platform: fitted on Manual and Semi-Automatic platesetters to receive manually loaded plates that are centered and pushed into the input module. The loading operation allows for two modes of loading: autoload enabled (no need to confirm the load) and autoload disabled. Sensors and motors used: BS113 (Plate Centering Home); BS114/115 (Plate centering Continuity 1 and 2); BS116 (Plate Pusher Home); BS118 (Plate on Platen Opto); BM10 (Plate Centering); BM11 (Plate Pusher). Chad Assemblies (B1 with punch): diverts chad from the punch pin guides to a channel at the rear of the drum and into a tray for removal. Note that the number of punch operations are counted to provide an alert for the user on when to empty the tray. Sensors and motors used: BS 79 (Chad Tray).

3.1.5 Buffer
See Table 3.1 for variant details and Section 3.5 for a description of the module assemblies. Roller Transport: a set of bands driven by rollers convey plates from the output module to the Processor. The speed of the rollers is adjusted from fast speed (to convey the plate from the output module) to slow speed (to synchronise with the processing speed) If the Processor is not ready, the plate is held in transit by the Buffer. Drive control depends on plate leading edge detection by the buffer/output module sensors and the Processor ready state commands to the Engine. Sensors and motors used: BS19, BS20 (Buffer Entrance/Exit); BM7 (Buffer Feed).

3.2.1.3 Inverter
An Hitachi SJ100 inverter uses a set of four switched relays on the Elevator Control PCB (see Section 3.2.1.6) to control multispeed power sequencing for the elevator motor. Inverter switching ensures the correct torque for heavy loads. Directions are for forward (FWD), reverse (REV), fast (FST) and reset (RST). Mains supply from the inverter is converted to vector drive signals U, V and W for the elevator motor (gearmotor). Inverter module functions are programmed from a digital display and keypad that allow the service engineer to run manual tests and check for error codes. Service engineers are recommended NOT to alter the EEPROM for the motor function control or adjust the frequency setting. The main servicing features of the Inverter are: Single-phase supply at 200 - 240 VAC (50/60 Hz) to a 4-pole gearmotor. An alarm (BS74) and overload output (BS75), via the Elevator Control PCB, to FHMB(2) if the module develops a fault or the temperature exceeds a set level. Power to the motor is immediately switched off when the alarm/overload conditions are set.

VOLUME 2 (3-12) P LATE H ANDLING M ODULES

When running, the inverter generates considerable heat that is dissipated by a rear cooling fin. Make sure the module is properly ventilated and the covers are not blocked. All switching relays on the Elevator Control PCB are supplied from +24 V generated from the inverter.

Figure 3.10 Sensor vane reading (5 shelves)

As the elevator and vanes move up or down through the sensors (BS32-34), a gray scale code is generated indicating the elevator position, see Table 3.3. Shelves are accurately positioned at the edge of the relevant sensor vane. The elevator is driven at a FAST speed until the shelf and vane edge is above the sensor, then drive down at a SLOW speed until the vane edge is detected, to give accurate and repeatable shelf alignment. An accurate mechanical alignment between the shelf rail and the PTM feed rails is critical for correct operation of the cassette forwarding mechanism. The alignment is set during the installation using a specification and an alignment procedure.

3.2.1.11 Absolute Limit Safety Switch


See Figure 3.1. Two safety switches (upper limit and lower limit) are set to disable the elevator if it travels beyond an upper and lower safety point. The switches are in series with the interlock supply to the contactor which switches off the elevator motor, see Figure 3.6. Once switched, the sensor must be reset by pulling out its yellow button. These switches are a final hardware limit to the elevator travel in either direction; normally, a software travel limit check will indicate an error before the switch is triggered.
WARNING: Do NOT test a limit safety switch while AC power is applied to the elevator motor. If a fault is suspected, then investigate the problem by isolating the switch assembly from the Autofeeder.

3.2.1.12 Autofeeder Motors


The two Autofeeder motors (BM) are as follows: BM26 Elevator Location: see Figure 3.1. Type: asynchronous motor and two-stage gearbox. Operation: raises and lowers the elevator. BM28 Z-Direction Control Location: see Figure 3.1 and Figure 3.13. Type: DC Operation: moves up an arm, checks that a cassette is fully home and that restrains the cassette while it is being pulled into the PTM.

Elevator Motor/Gearbox (BM26)


Elevator drive is from an asynchronous motor with a two-stage worm gearbox. The gearbox is sealed and does not require maintenance.
CAUTION: Make sure all precautions are followed when servicing the elevator while the frame is being lifted under motor control. If in doubt, lift the frame by turning the elevator motor fan.

Rotate the fan at the top of the motor to move the elevator in either direction over a very short distance. Main Diagnostics commands, described in this chapter are also used to raise or lower the elevator.

3.2.1.13 Autofeeder Solenoids

3.2.2.1 Main Frame Assemblies


A main outer frame, shown in Figure 3.14, houses the control modules and mechanical assemblies. The Autofeeder base locates the anchor feet and jacking castors at each corner. The castors are only used to manoeuvre the module; the weight of the module is always distributed on four anchor feet that are locked in position with the castors lifted. Two floor restraints, at the outer ends of the main frame, prevent the Autofeeder from moving when the trolley is pushed against the cassette door. Check that the restraint brackets are securely fixed to the floor.

3.2.2.2 Multi-Cassette Housing Assembly


The housing assembly sits on top of the Autofeeder frame to allow room for raising the elevator. A single version of the housing is available for a 5-shelf frame. Once fitted, it is not normally removed for a service procedure, unless

there is a mechanical problem lifting the frame. To ensure a light-tight fit, the housing is precisely positioned on the frame with locating dowels.

3.2.2.3 Cassette Loading Door


This door can only be opened from the MMI using the `Change Cassette' options. See Section 3.2.1.8 which describes the door locking mechanism.

3.2.2.4 Elevator Frame


Figure 3.15 shows the main sub-assemblies fitted on the elevator frame: Sensor Vane Elevator Drive Assemblies. A cam follower bracket aligns the elevator frame to the main frame and the PTM. The alignment is factory-set. An adjustable bracket allows the follower setting to be altered on either side, but this is only required if there is a problem levelling all the shelves to the cassette guides on the plate feed.

ELEVATOR SENSOR VANE

Figure 3.16 Elevator Sensor Vane

Each vane is adjusted vertically to line up each shelf with the slotted sensor and vane switching positions. Once factory-set, they do not need to be readjusted unless the shelf-PTM rails become misaligned, causing an obstruction for the cassette. If there is an alignment problem use the procedure in Volume 3 Section 2.2.1.6.

3.2.2.6 Elevator Drive Assemblies


The elevator frame is moved up/down by a gearmotor and chain pulley arrangement shown in Figure 3.17. Each drive chain is identified with its number of links. As an extra safety feature, the chains run on gear sprockets with metal guard plates that ensure they engage with the sprockets if the tensioner spring suddenly fails. The guard is factory-set and should not be adjusted.

Chain links are internally self-lubricating and only need to be visually checked during a service visit for signs of corrosion on the side plates where a machine is operating in a humid environment. If there are exterior signs of corrosion, carefully remove the corrosion then apply a coating of thin oil to the affected area. The recommended lubricant is: Kluber oil (4UH1-68) or, if this is unobtainable, any low viscosity (10-40) oil. The chain is fixed at two points: Adjuster end: this is adjusted by two locknuts to ensure the correct tension. A pin at the bottom of the adjuster prevents the locknuts from coming loose. The adjustment is factory-set and does not need to be retightened. Tensioner end: a spring tensioner secures the chain to a fixed plate on the elevator frame. This is a replaceable part.

3.2.2.7 Trolley Trolley Assemblies


Figure 3.19 shows the main trolley assemblies.

Trolley Operation
The main function of the trolley is to transport a cassette between the plate loading area and the Autofeeder. Cassettes are always stored either on a trolley or on a free Autofeeder shelf. The trolley functions as follows: A parking brake is switched on for loading and installing plates. A trolley tray operates on a pivot mechanism that allows it to be in two plate handling positions: horizontal and vertical. In the vertical position it is possible to load plates located on the plate pack support; the vertical position is offset slightly at an angle to prevent the plates from slipping. The Luxel Platesetter Operator's Manual explains in more detail how the trolley is used.

3.2.2.8 Cassette
CAUTION: Cassettes are always located on the trolley or inside the Autofeeder. They are very heavy and, if handled or stacked on one side, could crack to break the light-tight seal.

Cassette Assemblies
See Figure 3.20 (showing the cassette lid), Figure 3.21 (showing the cassette body) and Figure 3.22 (showing the cassette platen). The cassette assembly consists of: A removable fibre-glass top lid with two sections: front and rear. The front lid is held down by magnets and opens when the cassette is pulled towards the feed head. A platen sub-assembly that includes three plate guides (with clamps). A body sub-assembly that provides the outside frame. The adjuster plates for aligning the lid catches are factory-set, and must not be moved.

If there are problems feeding plates into the feed head it could be caused by: Loaded plates exceed the cassette capacity limit of 60. The plate pack is not adequately butted against the datum edge. The plate guides are too tight against the plate pack. Cassette ID label is damaged or removed. Appendix B describes the possible error codes and remedies for elevator, cassette and plate advancing faults. A cassette ID label is fitted in an exact location (marked by two dimples) on the lower side of the cassette body shown in Figure 3.21. Spare labels with adhesive backing are easily fitted by the customer. If there are problems with feeding plates into the feed head, it could be caused by:
1. Loading plates that exceed the capacity limit of 60. 2. The plate pack is not adequately butted against the datum edge. 3. The plate guides are too tightly held against the pack.

The cassette ID label is fitted in an exact location (marked by two pimples) on the lower side of the body shown in Figure 3.21. Spare labels with adhesive backing can be fitted by the customer. The new ID is read into the database as normal. See the Platesetter Operator's Manual for a description on how the cassette is operated.

The New 24 V Distribution PCB includes circuitry to attenuate the +24 V sensor signal (from BS50/51/55) to +5V before they are passed to the FHMB. BV24 is an on-board relay switched by FHMB 3 to connect the +24 VDC supply to sensors BS50, BS51 and BS55. This ensures the sensor photo lights are only on at required times and do not cause plate `fogging' by being on continuously. Volume 2 Figure 9.8 shows system cable interconnections and Volume 2 Section 8.1 describing the pin signals.

Cassette ID PCB
Figure 3.23 shows the location of the Cassette ID PCB for a fully-automatic platesetter before the plate feed mechanism on the service side and Figure 3.29 shows the PCB layout. The main function of the PCB is to read the cassette ID (SW1-5) as the cassette is advanced towards the plate feed. It also routes the cassette forward/reverse limit (BS41/42) and front door open (BS76) sensors to FHMB2.

Cassette Forward Operation


See Figure 3.33. Volume 2 Section 2.3 explains how the cassette forward mechanism operates. The two arms advance/reverse the cassette as follows: As the two arms rotate in the advance direction, the cams locate inside the cassette grooves to pull in the cassette to the feed head. As the two arms rotate in the reverse direction, the cams push the cassette

VOLUME 2 (3-54) P LATE H ANDLING M ODULES

back into the elevator. The drive arms rotate 270 from their home position to collect the cassette from the elevator shelf by sliding cam followers into the cassette channels and pulling the unit forward. After the cassette at nudger (BS65) sensor indicates the cassette has reached the feed head the drive arms stop rotating. A reverse rotation pushes the cassette back into the elevator, as shown in Figure 3.33.

Motor and sensors: includes a motor gear (BM25) to actuate the retard pad, and sensors (BS56 and 57) to indicate the position of the pad. BS65 microswitch indicates if the cassette has reached the nudger. Since the assembly is critical for the throughput of single plates and interleaf sheets into the PTM, it is built and set very precisely at the factory and should not need adjusting during a service visit. Any sub-assembly failure (including the motor) is completed by replacing the complete module.

3.3.2.7 Interleaf Diverter and Drive Roller


Figure 3.38 shows the interleaf diverter and drive roller assemblies. The diverter and drive rollers are two separate assemblies consisting of: Diverter guide: normally in the up position for interleaf sheets. Solenoid: drops the diverter guide for plates. It includes a coupling between the device and the guide shaft. Counter-weight: enables the guide to rise to its home position for interleaf sheets. A new longer counter-weight is now fitted. Rollers: drive roller and nip roller. Bearings: these are not FRUs but they are removable.

3.3.2.8 Plate Transport Guides


See Figure 3.39. The five plate guides are designed to be easily removed to access assemblies on the PTM which require a service procedure. They provide a smooth travel surface for transferring plates (driven by the takeaway motor) from the cassette to the input module. The guides are stationary plates fixed between the feed head and the input module to provide a path for the plates and interleaf sheets. An air knife assembly blows any surface contaminants back towards the Autofeeder. Two Mylar deflection strips (short and long) are attached to the feed head with adhesive backing. They are fitted to ensure that plates stay in contact with the guides and activate sensor BS50.

3.4 Engine Plate Handling Modules


The Engine consists of: Control assemblies - see Section 3.4.1 Mechanical assemblies - see Section 3.4.2.

3.4.1 Engine Control Assemblies


Fully-Automatic: control and power from the Engine are routed to the Buffer and PTM (and Autofeeder), see Volume 2 Figure 9.8. Note that the Engine must be mechanically coupled with the PTM to avoid plate `fogging'. The Buffer forms a bridge to the Processor ensuring there is no risk of light `fogging' plates. Manual and Semi-Automatic: Engine and Buffer control and power is the same as the fully-automatic for these variants.
NOTE: differences in control assemblies depend on whether the system is without a punch (web) or with a punch.

3.4.1.4 Registration Pin Isolation PCB


See Figure 3.48

Location
See Figure 3.40. Located on the drum mounting plate (service side) for all nonpunch platesetter variants.

Operation
A check for plate skewing occurs when the plate contacts both registration pins. Once electrical continuity is sensed between the two pins, the plate is deskewed.

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 2 (3-75)

The Registration Pin Isolation PCB provides electrical isolation between both registration pins and chassis ground. An on-board PSU (5VDC to 5 VDC) applies power across both pins in series with opto-isolators connected to FHMB (4). This arrangement forms an electrical barrier that guarantees a completed circuit when the pins and the plate are in contact.

3.4.2.4 Drum
See Figure 3.50. The drum assembly is an aluminium casting fixed to the Engine base. Since it has an anodised surface that prevents corrosion, it does not require servicing except for periodic cleaning to remove plate dust and punch swarf. Note that the drum surface should be cleaned after every service visit and the customer reminded of the importance of this maintenance task. For imaging purposes, the axes of the drum are usually defined as:

Drum functions are: Conforming a plate for imaging: drum vacuum/air blow is across sets of grooves directly connected to a manifold and valve system. Note that for non-punch machines there is a leading edge zone which has three states: LE conform blow, LE eject blow and LE vacuum conform. Pipe connections to the drum are factor-fitted and should not normally be checked unless there are conformance problems. Supporting the traverse carriage: a top beam supports the carriage that holds the spinner. To ensure that the carriage and its ball cage are properly aligned, the drum (and Engine) must be level across the traverse axis.

NOTE: Follow the drum cleaning procedure in Volume 3 Section 1.5.4.

3.4.2.5 Transport Push Bar (Spring)


See Figure 3.59. The spring bar (Mark 2), fitted to all Violet variants, is a modified version of the Green push bar. It includes the following features: Spring shoes replaces the mounted blade for plate contact (note that these are replaced every 12 months). The distance between springs depends on the maximum size of plates used on the machine. Clutch is not fitted. The complete assembly easily removed and installed. The bar is designed as an accurately aligned assembly biased to the drum surface to ensure the plate is not skewed against the registration pins and is conformed to the drum for accurate registration. The bar moves around the drum using a drive shaft with two pinions either end that locate on gear segment rings. The strip contacts the trailing edge of the plate and drives it until the leading edge reaches the registration pins on the punch assembly. Sensors: BS15 (fully-automatic) detects the forward limit of travel towards the punch and BS6 indicates the bar Home position. Motor: motor (BM2) and gearbox drives the assembly using adjustable gear segments set into the drum. Service checks need to be made on the push bar for:
A)

Mechanical conformance: note that the plate can be poorly conformed mechanically and still have adequate vacuum conformance. Spring shoes: these may need to be replaced annually, depending on production rate. Pitch ring: these are checked during each visit for Delrin flakes, see Volume 3 Section 1.6.3.

NOTE: After completing any of the procedures below, make sure that the push bar and drum are clean and free from obstructions.

Volume 2 Section 1.10.15 describes the Main Diagnostics commands for moving the bar to step positions around the drum. Different size plates require a different number of steps; as a general rule you can enter a higher number for the size of plate and allow for the clutch to slip after the plate reaches the registration

Mechanical Conformance
For correct push bar operation, the support bar must be parallel to the pins, and parallel to the axis of the drum. Push bar alignment is always carried out by adjusting the gear segments ring around the drum. Plate skew can cause poor vacuum conformance at one side of the leading edge. As a quick check, lightly tap the leading edge of the plate at each end of the punch and note if the sound is hollow or firm. A hollow sound indicates there is a possible problem with conformance often caused by skew. Volume 3 Section 1.8.3.1 describes the main procedure for measuring if skew is within

specification. Fully-Automatic Machines Only: plate skew is sometimes caused by poor alignment between the PTM and the Engine after the inter-module fixing screws have loosened, see Volume 3 Section 1.8.2.1. Check that the external frame skins are aligned correctly using the information in the Installation Manual. Non-Punch machines Only: use the setup procedure to ensure that the plate is correctly conformed to the registration pins, see Volume 3 Section 1.8.3.

Registration pin motor (BM5) and gear head. Pin cam (eccentric) attached to the motor arm. Actuating rod that mechanically drives the pin bar. Sensors BS10/11 indicate to the system if the pins are extended or retracted. Registration pins (6-off) attached to bar.

Registration Mechanism Operation


When driven by BM5, the pins have two possible positions:
1. 2.

Extended: the pins are in the plate path and the plate leading edge is stopped. Retracted: the pins are out of the plate path and the plate can be pushed towards the Buffer.

Centerer Mechanism Assembly


See Figure 3.60. The plate centering mechanism comprises: Two centerer arms (fingers) and rails driven by motor (BM3) via a rack and pinion. Centerer motor (BM3) and gear head Centerer home sensor (BS14) allowing the arms to be set at 1174 mm apart. Centering is achieved when there is electrical continuity between the two side fingers and the plate.

Centerer Mechanism Operation


The plate is aligned for punching by the centerer after it is pushed into the punch assembly. A centering operation occurs as follows:

1. Extended registration pins stops the plate leading edge in a datum position. 2. Centerer fingers in the Home position move inwards until both the left and
righhand side detect a plate, indicating the plate has been centered. not reached the punch or if step 2. above fails.

3. The fingers attempt to centre the plate and issue an error code if the plate has 4. The fingers move back towards Home before the plate is conformed.

scanned plate outputs from the Engine with the transport rollers in the Processor. Plates are held in transit at the Buffer until the Processor sends a READY request command for the next plate. Delays can be caused, for instance, when the Processor chemical temperature needs adjusting for a different type of plate. The Processor communication link is enabled or disabled from the TOOLS menu on the MMI. If the link is disabled, the Processor still operates by sensing the arrival of the plate at the input entry. However, the workflow output is likely to be slower and more prone to jams. BM7: Buffer Feed to Processor: Location: see Figure 3.69. Type: stepper and dual-ratio gearbox. Operation: drives the plate from the output module into the Buffer at faster speed than BM6. Stepper reverses direction and gearbox slows bands to match speed of Processor input.

TRAVERSE SCAN MODULES


This chapter describes the main traverse modules and how the scan system operates:

4.1 Introducing the Traverse Scan Modules


See Volume 1 Section 2.3 introducing the traverse scan system and Volume 3 Section 3.1 describing how traverse scan FRUs are replaced. The media scan system includes the modules shown in Figure 4.1. with their physical location shown in Figure 4.2.
NOTE: All Luxel platesetter variants use the same traverse scan modules and method of operation.

4.1.1 Beam Assemblies


A cast aluminium beam provides the main support for the traverse carriage and includes the following sub-assemblies: V-groove rail: provides a sliding surface for the ball cage. Ball cage: a precision assembly of ball bearings that allow the carriage to slide along the V-groove. Both carriage and cage need to be physically aligned using the procedure in Volume 3 Section 1.7.2. A separate software utility checks for `creep' (ie the two assemblies gradually become misaligned as the system constantly traverses) Drive rail: provides a drive rail for the traverse motor spindle and a base for the linear scale. Linear scale: runs along the drive rail to provide position coding for the readhead encoder. Actuators: All position measurements are offset from two actuators that indicate the exact reference (Index) and coarse reference (Home).

4.1.2 Traverse Carriage Assemblies


The carriage assembly is motor-driven to run along the beam drive rail from its Home position on the Service side. Scanning is from the user to the service end. A traverse motor, which moves the carriage, is controlled directly from the Traverse PCB that operates as a CAN node. Position feedback is provided by a readhead sensing micro positions on the linear scale; commands from the System PCB, via the Traverse PCB, control the position and direction of the carriage. Traverse PCB: this PCB runs local software handling routines for operating the traverse carriage mechanisms. See also Section 4.1.2.1. Spinner: the spinner (Speedring type) includes an encoder that returns an Index signal for each revolution and a rotating mirror for reflecting the laser beams onto the plate. See Section 4.2.2. Baffles: two baffles are fitted: removable and fixed. Baffles are fitted to help conform film to the drum and prevent laser light scattering on the plate. See Section 4.2.1.1. Traverse Motor: a DC motor drives a spindle along the drive rail. Readhead: an encoder with sensors that reads the micro positions on the linear rail to detect current position. Umbilical: an umbilical ribbon cable from the Traverse PCB to FHMB4 connects the CAN control/status signals and the power voltages. The cable is positioned along a tray and flexes as the carriage traverses the drum. Edge Detect PCB and Laser: detects the side edge of the plate for calculating a horizontal start imaging position. See Section 4.3. The carriage is removed from the engine using two extenders fitted to the beam. Most service procedures are completed while the carriage is located on the extenders.

4.1.2.2 Traverse PCB Functional Description


The Traverse PCB controls the spinner and traverse mechanisms, and also provides the drive currents for the spinner and traverse motors.

MPU Controller
The main functions of the MPU (Motorola 68376) are: To control the Traverse PCB locally by receiving and interpreting high-level commands sent from the System PCB over the CAN bus. These commands typically include, for example, Spinner Start/Stop, Traverse Datum, Fans On/ Off. Initialises the Precision Motion (PM) Controller that operates the closedloop position feedback system for the traverse control. Pass control and position data to the PM controller. Control the flow of diagnostic data to a local VDU.

L UXEL P LATESETTER 2-4-7

4.2 Media Scan System Description


4.2.1 Scanning Overview
This section describes the function and operation of the scan system control modules that operate around the Traverse PCB. The media scan control system is broadly divided into two areas: Spinner control: a high-speed air-bearing spinner driven by a brushless dc motor. The spinner includes a mirror to reflect laser beams onto the plate and an enclosed rotary encoder that supplies a SPIN INDEX signal to the System PCB. Traverse control: a spinner carriage mounted on beam that runs the length of the drum. Position feedback is taken from a readhead and a linear scale fixed to the drive rail. Spinner and traverse operations are managed locally by a Traverse PCB attached to the carriage. Carriage motion is from a friction drive shaft turned by a dc motor. Note that the shaft has a precise diameter and any dirt or damage on or around the shaft will give a mis-registration pattern. The scanning system controls the traverse mechanisms and consists of the following features: dedicated precision motion controller traverse closed-loop servo compensation system traverse motor amplifier two sensors to detect positions from fixed actuators on the drive rail: coarse Home position exact Index position (reference)

linear encoder supplying position data. Expose scanning to plate is from a spinner that has the following features: discrete Traverse PCB circuitry that controls the drive current spinner feedback encoder signals to regulate speed and avoid fluctuations 3-phase supply with transistor switching to energise the motor windings braking from an System PCB command. The traverse carriage is supported on a linear bearing and a plain drive rail, see Figure 4.6. Both bearing and drive rail are parallel to a beam which runs the length of the drum. The linear bearing consists of a long V-groove section fixed to the beam, and a short section mounted on the carriage. An open ball cage assembly separates the two sections. A traverse motor shaft, supports and drives the carriage along a plain drive rail that holds the linear scale and the traverse reference actuators. The ball cage and traverse rail are aligned to ensure that the cage is always under the rail for the entire travel of the carriage. Volume 3 Section 1.7.1 describes the alignment procedure.

4 4

2-4-8 T RAVERSE S CAN M ODULES

4.2.1.1 Mixer Fan and Baffles


A mixer fan mixes (equalises) the drum air thermals around the spinner to prevent error patterning. The fan is mounted on a hinged bracket that locates outside the drum end cap on the service side and is controlled from a relay fitted on the engine underneath FHMB1. Two baffle assemblies are fitted on the carriage to prevent light scattering from the plate surface and exposing other areas of plate. The baffle (user side) is removable for spinner mirror cleaning; the baffle (service side) is fixed.

4.2.1.2 Traverse PCB Imaging Control


When the system is ready to output an image, the Traverse PCB receives information from the System PCB on:
1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

horizontal start of image (right-hand edge when the machine is viewed from the front) vertical start of image (first part of image exposed after the Index pulse) image resolution number of laser beams (1 or 2) traverse direction of imaging (user to service end).

The Traverse PCB then moves the carriage to the correct position. After image data has finished downloading from the RIP, the System PCB instructs the Traverse PCB to start scanning.

4.2.1.3 Scan Interlock Protection


The covers and doors on the platesetter are interlocked using the system fully described in Volume 1 Section 3.3. If a cover is opened, and the interlocks not overridden, voltage supply (+36V and +24 V) to the Traverse PCB is removed. This halts spinner rotation.

4.2.1.4 Traverse Diagnostics


Traverse PCB on-board diagnostics check for cage creep if the engine traverse level falls outside the specification. A set of utilities allow you, for instance, to move the carriage to a set position, to datum the carriage or halt the traverse.

4.2.1.5 Umbilical Interface


Electrical and power connection to the scanning system is from a 45-way flexible ribbon cable. This conveys power and CAN command signals to the Traverse PCB, and returns status signals to the System PCB. With the exception of the CAN bus, all other differential signals are RS422 interface standard.

4.2.2 Spinner Control Subsystem


Spinner control is a closed-loop system with a common clock source to the spinner control circuit and traverse controller. All the main spinner control functions are located on the Traverse PCB. Commands for the spinner (for instance, Start/ Stop and Full/Idle Speed) are transmitted to the controller via the CAN bus from the System PCB.

L UXEL P LATESETTER 2-4-9

4.2.2.1 Spinner Encoder


The spinner is fitted with a rotary encoder that provides two differential signals: DATA A with a resolution of 720 lines/rev. This signal is used locally for the spinner closed-loop control, and is transmitted back to the System PCB where it is multiplied for use by the pixel data clock. It is compared (on the Traverse PCB) to a crystal-derived reference clock to give an error signal, via a compensation circuit, that varies the current to the spinner motor windings. SPIN INDEX occurs once per spinner revolution. This signal is transmitted directly to the System PCB where it is used to synchronise the carriage and spinner mirror positions.

4.2.2.2 Spinner Controller


This function operates from the Traverse PCB and is responsible for driving the spinner motor based on feedback information derived from the encoder. The controller regulates motor current by varying the duty cycle of the switching waveforms applied to the power stage. At 40,000 rpm, the pulse width modulation signal and the Hall effect signals are synchronised. Also, the traverse and spinner speeds are synchronised from the same reference clock signal to ensure correctly aligned raster imaging. See Section 4.2.4 below.

4.2.2.3 Spinner Diagnostics


A set of service diagnostics for the spinner is available to start and stop the spinner, display index counts, set image offset position on the plate and run spinner auto-tests..

4.2.2.4 Spinner Condition Sensing and Braking


Besides the servo loop, spinner control is also determined by a number of external conditions and detector signals that are monitored for diagnostic use.

Current Limit
Maximum current to the spinner from the controller output is set not to exceed 15 A (for 1.5 secs) on spinner startup, with maximum current for each phase is limited to 8 A thereafter.

Braking
When braking is switched on, the spinner comes to rest at approximately 20 secs from full speed. Braking is applied by shorting out the three windings and using regenerative braking to decelerate the spinner. It is active when:
A) B)

the spinner controller initialises power is removed from the Traverse PCB (for instance, an interlock is opened) on-demand signals via the software.

C)

Braking also occurs for the following conditions listed below:

Stalled Rotor
If the rotor fails to move following a Start command.

2-4-10 T RAVERSE S CAN M ODULES

Hall Effect Sensor Failure


The controller monitors the validity of the Hall effect sensor codes when the spinner starts to turn. There are six valid (and two invalid) codes depending on the initial rotor positions. On detection of an invalid code, power is removed from the motor.

Overspeed/Underspeed Detection
Power is removed from the motor if the spinner is stalled or is rotating too slowly. Speed is calculated from the spinner shaft encoder.

Over-temperature
Local ambient temperature around the spinner output terminals on the Traverse PCB is monitored by an on-board detecting device. If the temperature exceeds 100C, the controller removes power to the motor.

4.2.3 Traverse Motor Control Subsystem


See Figure 4.4. Direction of traverse travel can be both ways depending on system software decisions, although normal scanning direction for imaging is from user to service end. Datum is determined from two sensors in the readhead which are actuated by two magnets: Home (HOME) - coarse detection Index (TRAV INDEX) - fine reference detection.

Units of measurement on the traverse system are in microns with the Index actuator defined as position 0. The valid range of the beam (in microns) is approximately 0 m to -1,220,000 m in steps of 1 m.
DRUM 1,220,000 m VE +VE

4.2.3.1 Linear Encoding


Position and servo control for the traverse is derived from signals fed to the Precision Motion controller by a readhead digital encoder system (Renishaw RGH22).

Scanning speeds vary with resolution and the number of beams operating. Traverse speed is directly proportional to the number of beams (for instance, a dual-laser beam at 96 l/mm speed equals two times a single-laser beam at 96 l/ mm).

Linear Scale
The linear scale is a 6 mm wide, self-adhesive steel strip that is gold-plated and lacquer coated. It is pressed with small corrugated pitches (facets) set at 20 microns. Gold plating on the scale assists optical reflection/diffraction from the readhead, while lacquer coating protects the strip from minor surface damage. It is attached to the drive rail and covers the length required for an end-to-end carriage movement. The design of the readhead and scale ensures it is tolerant of small amounts of contamination or damage. It is cleaned by wiping with a cloth dipped in an approved cleaning agent described in Volume 3 Section 1.5.2.If the scale is badly damaged, it is possible to replace the complete strip in-situ; but this is not a standard replacement procedure and requires advice from FFEI Customer Support.

Readhead
See Figure 4.5. This is a position feedback transducer that supplies digital signals directly to the PM controller. The current device is a Renishaw RGH22X that runs from a supply of 5 VDC, has a resolution of 1m, and operates an infra-red diode as a source of illumination. Infra-red light obliquely illuminates the scale facets which then reflect and scatter light towards the readhead window. An index grating inside the device redirects the light to form fringes identical to the scale pitches. Each fringe point is the summation of light from 100 scale facets to give an averaging effect that helps to overcome the problem of scale contamination. Photo-sensitive diodes then generate phased currents from these fringes. Interpolation hardware in the readhead sub-divide the composite signals to produce two quadrature square waves with a resolution of 1 m. The readhead is a field replaceable unit that includes a plastic spacer to check the recommended 0.8 mm distance between the head and the scale. Note that there is a registration procedure to setup the readhead with the index actuator.

To ensure accurate encoding, the gap between the scale and the readhead must be set using the 0.8 mm spacer supplied with the head. When the head is replaced, the setting should be checked over the entire length of the scale track by observing the readhead LED as the carriage is pushed from one end to the other. Optical signal generated from the scale is read by a built-in monitoring circuit that measures relative alignment and set-up conditions. Any indication of error is shown by a bi-colour LED. As a servicing check, the diagnostic LED is visible from the user end while the carriage travels along the complete scan distance. LED colour indications are as follows: Green: set-up conditions are acceptable. Orange: conditions are acceptable but small adjustments are required for obtaining an improvement. The manufacturer's Installation Guide explains how to set-up the alignment. Red: conditions are unacceptable. The manufacturer's Installation Guide explains how to set-up the alignment.
NOTE: A correctly setup readhead is essential for accurate encoding.

Traverse Servo
A desired reference trajectory is generated on the PM controller as a sequence of positions and this is compared to a register that holds data on the current carriage position received from the linear encoder (readhead). The resulting digital error signal is processed as a new numerical value by the controller and sent as an update to the DAC. Dynamic response (speed of response, etc) of this servo loop is determined by an external compensation circuit to give an output that drives the traverse motor from a linear power amplifier.

L UXEL P LATESETTER 2-4-13

Traverse Amplifier
Analogue signals from the servo is converted to current by a linear push-pull amplifier, with local feedback to ensure that current through the motor is proportional to the input. Output current from the amplifier is fed back to an MPU A-to-D channel for diagnostic measurement.

Traverse Motor Assemblies


This is fitted to the carriage casting as an assembly of: Motor: a brush DC motor (with casting). Motor shaft: a friction shaft that consists of a hardened silver steel with a central crown that moves along the drive rail. Avoid damaging or knocking this item. The diameter of the shaft is 9 mm. Flywheel: used to smooth the speed of the carriage along the rail. Turn the flywheel by hand to start the traverse along the rail. Drive rail wiper: forms a housing over the motor shaft and includes an arrangement of felt pads that keeps the motor shaft clean as the carriage moves. Both the rail and shaft must be free of contaminants to avoid misregistration.

Traverse Actuators
Figure 4.6 shows the position of the two reference actuators and linear scale detected by the readhead. The end stop is fitted as a mechanical stop.

Carriage Position Encoder


This consists of a linear scale fixed to the drive rail, and a readhead attached to the carriage which passes over the scale as the carriage moves. Position data is passed directly to the Traverse PCB for use by the servo control. Resolution for position movement is set at 1 m. The readhead also includes two sensing circuits (Index and Home) triggered by

L UXEL P LATESETTER 2-4-15

passive actuators (magnets) fitted to the rail on the Buffer side of the beam.

Home Actuator
This sensor actuator generates a signal before the mechanical stop to define one end of the beam, see Figure 4.7. The Home signal is active for the final 20 mm of carriage movement until the carriage reaches its mechanical end stop. It is used as a coarse position sensor, determining which way to move the carriage at power up. It is also used as a software warning flag to indicate that the Index sensor in close proximity. Note that it is not possible to move the carriage beyond the active region of the Home signal while it is traversing.
COARSE HOME POSITION SIGNAL CARRIAGE TRAVEL ACCURATE INDEX SIGNAL RAIL CARRIAGE STOP

Figure 4.7 Home and Index signal relationship

Index Actuator (Reference Mark)


This sensor actuator is positioned opposite the Home actuator and provides a precise reference point for linear movement. All absolute positions are measured from the point where the TRAV INDEX signal is asserted. The index signal (TRAV INDEX) is active for the same distance as the main scale (1 m). It is repeatable, short and accurate, and is asserted approximately 5 mm 'inside' the Home sensor region. This sensor is always approached by the carriage from the same direction during the datum operation to ensure the highest repeatability. The method is as follows:
A) B) C)

a valid Home signal is detected carriage moves left slightly beyond the Index sensor moves right and halts on the left-hand edge of the Index sensor.

Because the position of the reference mark pulse is set for very high precision repeatability, some form of registration is necessary. Using the readhead LED indicators, the optimum phasing of the reference mark trigger signal, relative to the incremental signal from the scale, is determined. A screw fixing on the actuator sets the correct registration. If the readhead mounting is disturbed, or the readhead is replaced, the reference mark will need to be re-registered using the procedure supplied by the manufacturer's Installation Guide. Make sure the retaining screws for the readhead are not disturbed.

2-4-16 T RAVERSE S CAN M ODULES

Overspeed and Braking


To prevent traverse control from driving the carriage too fast, the rate of encoder pulses are measured and, if excessive, a signal is sent to brake the traverse motor. Braking occurs if: the readhead detects a poor setup/alignment along the linear encoder track, see the Readhead section above. the Traverse PCB detects that the encoder is missing or not connected. A position error is generated if the carriage does not align with a reference point. a power failure is detected. The normal maximum speed of the carriage is 100 mm/sec which is measured from the carriage encoder signals. If the speed exceeds 110 mm/sec the brake is operated. A braking status message is available to the System PCB. Local ambient temperature around the Traverse PCB output devices is measured by an on-board sensor. If the temperature exceeds approximately 100 C, power to the motor is removed and a signal is sent to the System PCB.

4.2.3.2 Optical/Traverse Synchronisation


See Figure 4.8. The precision motion (PM) controller on the Traverse PCB requires a system clock that is scaled by a phase lock loop (PLL) and derived from the same crystal reference used for the spinner. This locks the spinner and traverse rates together, giving the exact resolution required. For lower resolutions the traverse moves at a correspondingly faster rate.

SCAN SWATHE A SCAN SWATHE B

Q P DRUM

Figure 4.8 Traverse and optical differences

Synchronisation of this kind is important for a dual-laser system where beam separation of the X and Y beams within a scan swathes (A and B) is determined optically by the spinner, but swathe separation is determined by traverse velocity. Any differences between optical and traverse scanning affects expose density and may give a raster defect. Synchronising should ensure that the distance at P matches the distance at Q. This principle of operation, when applied in practice, produces scan lines that are effectively at equidistance.

L UXEL P LATESETTER 2-4-17

4.2.3.3 Traverse Diagnostics


Traverse diagnostics, controlled from the Traverse PCB, check that the motor, power drive and linear encoder are connected and operating. There are also diagnostic commands to move the traverse in small incremental steps. Traverse encoding is constantly monitored by the board MPU while the motor is enabled. To avoid the possibility of damage to the system, the traverse registers in the PM controller are checked as a background task to ensure that: the scanning speed is within a specified range a new traverse position count has not deviated the linear encoder is sending valid codes and is working within its specifications. Other periodic and initialisation traverse checks are for: Home and Index sensor operation obstructions along the length of the track.

4.2.4 Traverse Initialisation Sequence


The board MPU runs a sequence of check routines to initialise the traverse system, after a reset or power up, in the following way:
1. Checks that a linear encoder is connected to the Traverse PCB. 2. If connected, then runs the on-board diagnostics.
A) B)

Checks for encoder alignment errors. Checks for the type of digital encoder and initialises the controller device accordingly.

3. Checks the status of the HOME signal to determine if the carriage is in the

Home region.

4. Sets up the PM controller to move in the appropriate direction. 5. Start the carriage movement in the direction set at step 4. above. 6. Stops carriage movement when a HOME signal is received; also, guards

against the signal being stuck at `0'.

7. Resets the traverse position counter to `0'. 8. Checks the INDEX signal is set to the correct value and guards against the

signal being stuck at `0'. initialisation.

9. Loads the traverse position counter with an offset to complete the traverse 10. Starts the spinner. 11. Checks that the spinner is rotating correctly and starts plate handling.

4.3.2 Operation
Plate edge detection is fitted on all Luxel variants other than the fully-automatic punch machine. Effectively, it is an electronic method for determining the start of imaging position from the plate edge inside the drum without the need to mechanically center the plate. A plate is loaded and its edge detected by a laser diode light pointing towards the drum. As the traverse moves towards the plate, any change of reflected light is sensed by a phototransistor receiver which detects the difference between the drum surface (scattered light) and the plate surface (specular light). This method takes advantage of very precise traverse measurement system for positioning the imaging beam along the slow scan axis. An LED, viewed from the service end, indicates when the laser light is on the plate (LED OFF) and on the drum (LED ON).
NOTE: Accurate detection is dependent on the correct set up and alignment of laser and phototransistor. See Volume 3 Section 3.3.9.

The sequence for detection operates as follows (see Figure 4.11):


1. A plate is loaded and makes contact with the two registration pins where

continuity is checked to ensure the plate is not skewed. switched ON.

2. The traverse starts moving from user to service end, and the laser is 3. When the plate edge is detected, the laser is switched off and the STB soft-

ware is informed.

4. The traverse moves a number of steps set by NVRAM parameter. 5. Imaging starts.

MEDIA EXPOSE MODULES


This chapter describes the optics system and the function of each main module.

5.1 Media Expose System


Media expose for all the Luxel CTP systems are based on a laser diode module generating light in the violet spectrum at 405 nm. Beams from two diodes, or pens, are combined using polarisation to provide a single emission. There is an option of one of a single- or dual-laser systems with an upgrade path between the two configurations. The media expose system consists of three main modules: Optics Base - includes laser modules, optics modules (EOD, etc) and the EODHV - see Section 5.1.1. Periscope and Spinner - see Section 5.1.3. Violet Boxer Optics Motor Board (VBOMB) - see Section 5.1.6. An outline introduction of how the Violet Luxel expose system, and its main PCB modules, function is given in Volume 1 Section 2.4. The Violet media expose system is able to operate under two lighting conditions:

The base assembly, shown in Figure 5.2, is accurately mounted on the Engine frame and drum casting to ensure that a collimated beam exits at a pre-determined position. It is not designed to be field replaceable - so it is important not to remove or adjust the location of the base unit.

The base is divided into three separate working enclosures:


1.

Laser Diodes and VBOMB: single or two laser diode modules, each with Photo Diode (PD) and Laser Diode (LD) head boards. Image data, drive control, temperature and power control are provided by the VBOMB PCB housed underneath. Optics Modules: a set of beam processing devices between the laser diode and the base exit lens, L5. EODHV: supplies the deflected high voltage inputs to the two EODs.

2. 3.

Modules are mounted on a baseplate made from cast aluminium with pads and dowel pin fixing points that precisely locate them for accurate beam alignment. The base consists of three enclosures, each with its own removable cover. To prevent dust contamination inside the base, it is important that these covers are not removed unless a module replacement is required. When a cover is replaced, make sure all foam rings and seals inside the base are not disturbed. The following optics base modules are fitted as FRUs (Field Replaceable Units):
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Remaining assemblies (beam combiner, lenses, mirrors, etc) on the base are not field replaceable. Each optic module on the beam path is accurately aligned during manufacture. If an optics module is replaced, it is usually necessary to run an optics_mmi setup procedure from Diagnostics to ensure that the new working part is correctly integrated into the expose system. See Volume 3 Section 4.4. After replacement, follow the recommended steps so that overall expose calibration is correct and within product specifications. Software control routines for base modules are run during the main operating stages for power on initialisation, expose setup, pre-scan and scanning.

WARNING: Once the covers are removed on the Luxel platesetter, radiated laser beams are classified as Class IIIB. With the covers in place, the laser operates as a Class1 source. Class IIIB lasers can only be serviced by engineers that have undergone a Laser Eye Test. Read all product laser Safety Notices before servicing laser equipment.

Laser Module Assemblies


See Figure 5.3. A Luxel system is configured as either:
A)

Single beam: using laser diodes LD3 (Y) only; there are two versions: upgradeable to dual-beam and non-upgradeable. Dual beam: using laser diodes LD1 (X) and LD3 (Y).

B)

The module is field replaceable. The Violet laser module comprises: Photo Diode (PD) PCB Laser Diode (LD) PCB Diode pen Beam correction lenses. The two laser modules (X and Y) are interchangeable. Each module is supplied with the two PCBs, Photo Diode and Laser Diode, already fitted. Control of laser output is from an Enable signal that is switched on when the system is scanning, and off when not scanning. The laser diode is directly modulated by image data from the VBOMB. Drive is provided for bias and data switching via the Laser Diode PCB. Laser power is measured from the LPD in order to achieve balance between the two beams.

Laser Input
The laser diode is driven by two current levels, bias and modulated drive data, shown in Figure 5.4. The addition of bias and drive current gives an output of approximately 25 mW. The power balance control from Phote Diode feedback vary the current slightly from the 30 mW setting. A separate Enable signal, set from the VBOMB control circuitry, serves as a laser shutter to halt beam emission.

Laser Output
Beam divergence is corrected by two cylinder lenses: CYL22 for fast axis and CYL60 for slow axis. Correction by these lenses are to compensate for ellipticity and astigmatism. The initial beam from the diode is 3 mm x 1 mm which uses the lens, LF60, to set a focus for the other two compensation lenses. The final output from the module is a circular, collimated beam (1 mm x 1 mm) at approximately 25 mW with a wavelength of 400-410 nm. The beam is also modulated by image data sent from the VBOMB. The laser module driver operates in constant power mode using feedback data from the Photo Diode. As the diode ages over time, current is increased gradually to compensate for the loss of power.

The supplied module is set up and calibrated at the factory before shipment. After a field replacement, the laser module must be set up again using the procedure in Volume 3 Section 4.4 onwards. A set of diagnostic checks that apply to the laser module are described in Table 5.2. See also Volume 2 Section 1.10.4.1.

Laser Temperature Control


See Volume 1 Section B.2 for a description of laser condensation control. Temperature control around the diode is set by: Two thermistor sensors (laser base and block) send temperature data to the VBOMB where it is used to modify Peltier temperature and provide a protection limit reading for the laser enable circuit. A Peltier holds the internal diode temperature at 25 C. Note that the fan is for cooling the VBOMB and not the laser modules.

See Figure 5.6. Two EODs (X and Y) deflect the beams (X and Y) to compensate for spinner rotation. Both modules use high voltage drive provided by the EODHV board: EOD X: sine deflector. EOD Y: cosine deflector. EOD sine and cosine data are transmitted after addressing the deflector LUTs for each spinner revolution. During an expose, the EOD deflecting voltage levels are dynamically updated from the EODD.

The EOD module is field replaceable.

5.1.1.8 Beam Combiner


See Figure 5.2. The main purpose of the beam combining prism is to merge deflected beams X and Y onto the same optical axis. It consists of one polarising prism appropriately positioned and angled so that the deflected beams are reflected onto the correct axis. Special optical coatings on each plate ensure that the optical power emerging from the module is nominally the same for each beam. This module is specially adjusted at the factory and is not field replaceable.

5.1.1.9 Neutral Density (ND) Filter


See Figure 5-5.7. A variable ND filter, attached to a wheel, filters the intensity (illumination) of the light beams to ensure that the correct exposure setting can be obtained. The positions of the wheel, in steps from a Home reference point, are derived during the expose calibration.
NOTE: The ND wedge must be cleaned with IPA.

The ND filter assembly includes a sensor (S1), which detects the Home position, and a stepper motor (SM1) that drives the wheel in `N' number of steps from the home position. An increasing number of steps from home gives increasing intensity in the light beams. Fine adjustment of laser power intensity is usually controlled at the laser module. The SM1 motor and sensor (S1) is a field replaceable unit. After replacing the motor or sensor, run the `ND_char' utility to setup a characterisation table of the LPD readings against the ND setting required for exposure calibration. The ND filter assembly is field replaceable.

5.1.1.10 Position Detector (POD)


See Figure 5.2. The main function of the POD board is to ensure that the two beams are co-incidental (aligned) within a margin of tolerance. This is done by measuring the relative position of each beam and providing compensatory offsets (change of DC bias voltages) using the EODs. Coincidence on the POD does not necessarily give coincidence on the drum. So, during an expose, further X and Y offsets are added to the LUT values for adjusting the two coincidence settings. Periodically, beam coincidence checks and adjustment routines are made via the detector when the system is in non-scan mode. To ensure correct measurements, the detector is accurately mounted (in relation to the beam axis) on a PCB and a mechanical holder. It is also pre-aligned at the factory before it is fitted in the optics base. A POD beam splitter of wedged glass reflects a small part of the combined beam back to the POD via L9 lens used for focusing the reflection and an aperture to prevent any secondary reflections. The POD is a field replaceable unit.

5.1.1.11 Focus Adjust


See Figure 5.8. A focus adjust lens moves backwards and forwards to give a fine focus adjustment for correcting small tolerance errors on the drum and different plate thicknesses. The lens is driven from a stepper motor (SM2) that moves in a number of steps depending on the thickness of the plates. SM2 drives a wheel that rotates 360 and also moves lens (L2) laterally along a pivotal axis in a leadscrew-type movement. One sensor (S3) is activated when the wheel approaches one end of the axis (Home), and another rotational sensor (S2) activates for a period during each 360 rotation. Note the focus difference between the green optics and the violet optics: Green: 1 step at focus (for 96 resolution) represents 0.345 m on the plate. Violet: 1 step at focus (for 96 resolution) represents 3.75 m on the plate. The focus adjust is not a field replaceable unit but it can be removed from the base plate provided it is accurately re-positioned against the dowels.

See Figure 5.9. An aperture control changes position according to the resolution (144, 100, 96, 72, 48 l/mm) selected and so changes the spot size on the plate. At the 96 l/mm resolution, near to lens (L2), the beams provide the smallest spot size for the drum; as the mechanism moves towards lens L5 (using a pulley mechanism), the beam is clipped to provide 72 l/mm. The aperture is removed from the light path for the 96 and 48 resolutions and travels into position for 72 l/mm using a mechanical groove.

At 48 l/mm, the aperture mechanism moves back to lens (past the 96 l/mm position) and mechanically pushes a beam converter mechanism into position. This mechanism, which is on a pivot, maintains beam power by locating lens (L3-48). The three possible resolutions are shown in Table 5.3.

Stepper motor (SM3) controls the position of the resolution changing aperture and the operation of the beam converter. Sensor (S5) prevents the motor being driven beyond a certain point. The aperture control module is not a field replaceable unit and can be removed from the base plate.

5.1.1.13 Optics Lenses


See Figure 5.2 showing the location of each lens. Optics base lenses are not field replaceable and do not require cleaning as a service procedure. They function as follows:

Lens (L1)
Laser beam single lens used for focusing and collimating.

Lens (L2)
A single lens used for focusing and collimating.

Lens (L3)
L3-48 fixed in a barrel sets the 48 resolution from the beam converter mechanism.

Collimating Lens (L5)


A collimating lens mounted at the entrance of the periscope to ensure that the light travelling through the periscope and along the drum axis does not diverge or converge.

Focusing Lens (L6)


This lens is located on the traverse carriage and focuses the beams onto the drum surface via the spinner mirror. Lens L6 is only cleaned by the service engineer and not the customer. Once fitted on an installed machine it must not be adjusted.

Lens (L9)
Focus lens for the reflected beam on the POD.

5.1.1.14 Optics Mirrors


See Figure 5.2 showing the location of each mirror.

Mirror (M3 - A to C)
Three mirrors (A, B and C) deflect laser beams through an arrangement of optics sub-modules inside the base. The mirrors are aligned at manufacture to avoid reflective errors, and are also fixed to ensure that the two beams are parallel and

at the same height to minimise errors. Any small angular error on a mirror will cause a much larger output error from the optics base. See Section 5.1.3 for locations of M1 and M2 mirrors on the periscope. Optics mirrors are not field replaceable.

5.1.1.15 Motors and Sensors


The following motors and sensors are fitted: ND Filter: SM1 and S2. Focus Adjuster: SM2 and S2/S3. Aperture Control: SM3 and S5. Laser Power Detector: SM4 and S6. All motors and sensors are field replaceable, but only some of the motors require a setup procedure after being replaced.

5.1.1.16 EODHV Module


Figure 5.2 shows the location of the module inside the optics base. The EODHV module provides the high voltage DC bias and AC drive for the electro-optic deflectors. The module consists of: PCB: see the EODHV PCB section below Transformers: see the HV Transformer section below.

EODHV PCB
See Figure 5.10. The assembly includes a high voltage DC-DC converter that supplies the fixed HT bias voltage. Push-pull amplifiers to drive the transformers are fixed to the X and Y heatsinks.

5.1.2 Optics System Configurations


The optics system is fitted as two versions:
1. 2.

Two-beam: this system uses lasers (X and Y) and all the modules shown in Fig Figure 5.2. One-beam: this uses a single laser and has the following modules removed:
A) B) C)

Laser diode (X) EOD (X and Y) Beam Combiner.

NOTE: Note that the setup procedures for the one-beam system are not the same for a two-beam system.

A base that does not have a beam combiner fitted is non-upgradeable in the field.

5.1.3 Periscope Assemblies and Operation


See Figure 5.12. A periscope arrangement redirects beams from the optics base to the spinner. It is not a single assembly but functions as three sub-assemblies: M1: (optics base end) - see Section 5.1.3.1. Laser Power Detector (LPD): see Section 5.1.3.2. M2: (spinner end) - see Section 5.1.3.3. A removable cover between the two mirrors protects the LPD sensor from dust and prevents small changes of air temperature from affecting the beam.

This mirror directs the beams through the periscope towards mirror (M2). It is setup at the factory and is not field replaceable.

5.1.3.2 Laser Power Detector (LPD) Assembly


A laser power detector assembly, located between M1 and M2, rotates a concentrating lens to focus the beams onto a large area detector. It includes a motor (SM4) and a sensor (S6). While the system is not scanning, the laser is switched on and average beam power for X and Y beams are measured. The purpose of these measurements are: Beam balance: any power difference between the two beams is equalised by adjusting the laser current drive for the stronger beam to match the weaker beam. Operation: each beam is checked for correct operation as a diagnostic procedure. The LPD also acts as a shutter when closed inline with the beam. It includes a manual safety shutter allowing the engineer to investigate a problem inside the drum while the optics system is active. The limit sensor (S6) detects when the LPD mechanism has reached its Home position. The motor has a 3:1 gear reduction to give finer control over the position of the sensor.
NOTE: On current production machines, the LPD board is isolated from chassis ground by a gasket mask in order to ensure accurate readings.

The LPD motor, PCB and sensors are field replaceable units.

WARNING: If the interlocks are overridden when the end panels are removed, make sure the spinner is not rotating during a service procedure.

The spinner currently specified comprises a mirror, shaft, body, motor, encoder and cables.
NOTE: The spinner mirror is metal-based with a special reflection-enhancing coating. Always use the cleaning procedure described in Volume 3 Section 1.5.1..

A single facet mirror, angled at approximately 47.5, rotates at the following speeds to reflect light to the plate surface from the periscope: 10,000 rpm idle speed. 33,333 rpm (556 Hz) for 48 and 47.2 (1200 dpi): Operates at a slower speed in order to get sufficient power to image.

VOLUME 2 (5-24) M EDIA EXPOSE M ODULES

40,000 rpm (667 Hz) for all other resolutions. Acceleration from rest to full speed is less than 20 seconds, and from idle speed to full speed approximately 10 seconds. The carriage only traverses when the spinner is stationary or at full speed.
CO SIGNALS MOTOR DRIVE SIGNALS MIRROR SURFACE

LASER BEAM

The assembly consists of a shaft supported on air bearings and rotated by a brushless DC motor. The bearing air supply is internally generated by the motor. Spin speed is at all rates with drive current supplied from 36 VDC. Spin direction is always anti-clockwise (looking from the mirror end). At one end of the shaft an incremental encoder, operating from a 5 V supply, generates the following signals for System Board image data control: rotational frequency (SPIN INDEX) at one per revolution angular position data (DATA A) with a resolution of 720 lines per revolution. Three Hall effect sensors are located in the spinner. When the spinner accelerates, these sensor signals (with 120 timing) indicate the rotor position; they are decoded by the spinner controller to commutate the drive currents to the correct switching sequence. In a steady state, commutation operates internally without the need for sensor signals. The spinner has two cable interface connections: spinner motor signals (12-pin Molex) spinner encoder signals (8-pin Molex). This assembly is a field replaceable unit and includes a cleaning procedure for the mirror. A replaced spinner assembly must be returned to FFEI Customer Support (UK).

5.2 Media Expose Control and Operation


5.2.1 Expose Sequence
The following operations are performed during an expose operation: Load a plate into the drum. Start up the spinner. Close the LPD to prevent exposing the plate. Switch on the lasers in bias mode. Perform cage creep compensation if required. Move the traverse to the start of scan position. Adjust the ND position to set the power level depending on resolution. Adjust the focus position depending on plate thickness. Adjust the aperture to set the spot size depending on resolution. If resolution has changed, then perform power balance. Apply sinusoidal deflection to the beams. Open the LPD shutter. Start the traverse. Modulate the lasers with image data. At end of expose, stop the traverse. Perform cage creep compensation if required. After a timeout, stop the spinner.

5.2.2 System Calibration


The following operations are performed every 1.5 hours if an expose job is requested:Check power balance and adjust if required Check beam_co and adjust if required.

The following operation is performed every 24 hours if an expose job is requested: Check for laser aging and adjust the laser current limits if required. Check and adjust the ND settings for all 8 resolutions to give the correct exposure calibration. The following operation is performed on demand by the user from the MMI:

EOD deflection. Laser aging control. Power balance. Beam coincidence. Drum coincidence. Exposure Calibration.

5.2.3.1 EOD Deflection


With no EOD deflection, the 2 beams will be on top of each other all the way around the drum. If a static deflection is applied, the beams separate in the slow scan direction at one point on the drum. At 90 degrees spinner rotation, the beams are separated in the fast scan direction instead. At 180 degrees spinner rotation, the beams cross over and separate in the slow scan direction again. To make the beams run parallel, a compensating sinewave deflection is added to the EODs. The X-EOD has a sinewave deflection and the Y-EOD has a cosine wave deflection. Static deflection is used to get co-incidence of the beams on the drum after beam coincidence is obtained on the POD. Sinewave deflection is used to separate the beams in the slow scan direction to get even spacing of lines. The amplitude of the sinewaves are adjusted to get the correct spacing at all resolutions. The absolute phase of the sinewaves i.e. the phase relative to the spinner index is adjusted to maximise the deflection in the slow scan direction. The LSB generates the deflector sinewave LUTs. This digital data is passed down the EODD bus to the EODD board and converted into low voltage sine and cosine waveforms using DACs. This is then passed to the EODHV board which generates the high voltage signals required for the EOD deflectors.

5.2.3.2 Laser Aging Control


The laser has an integral photodiode detector board. This is used in a negative feedback loop to control the laser output power in APC (Automatic Power Control) mode. The current taken by the laser diode is adjusted automatically to give the correct power. As the laser ages, the current required increases to give the same power output. The laser has a current limit which is set at 10% higher than the operating current. As the operating current increases, the current limit has to be also increased to prevent current limiting. The laser aging control loop is executed once every 24 hours. This checks the operating current of each laser and changes the current limit to give a 10% margin. The rate of change of current is checked. If this exceeds 7% in 24 hours, then a serious warning is given on the MMI that a laser change is required urgently. When the operating current reaches 50% higher than the original operating current when the laser was new, then a less serious warning is given on the MMI that a laser change is required within a few weeks. Each time the laser current increases by 10%, an entry is added to laser statistics tables in diagnostics. The table is capable of holding 5 pairs of data values. By inspecting this table, the rate of laser aging can be calculated and a prediction made of when the 50% overcurrent will occur.

5.2.3.3 Power Balance


The purpose of power balance is to get equal powers in both beams at the drum. The actual powers are measured at the LPD since the transmission loss is the same for both beams between LPD and the drum. Power balance depends on resolution. If a job is requested and if there is a resolution change or if a 1.5 hour timer has expired, then power balance is checked. If the powers are within limits, then the job is exposed. If the powers are outside tolerance limits, then the powers are adjusted. Power balance is achieved as follows: Set both laser drive powers to maximum (25 mW at the output of the laser module). Set the optics motors to the 96 resolution position. Check the power levels on the LPD. For the laser with the highest power, reduce the drive power until the powers are equal. The powers are adjusted separately for 3 different optical models. The LOW resolution model is for 1200 and 48 resolutions which has the drop down lens in the beam converter (aperture mechanism) to give the largest spot size at the drum. The MID resolution model is for 1800 and 72 resolutions which has an aperture in the beam to give a mid size spot at the drum. The HIGH resolution model is for 2400, 96, 100 and 144 resolutions which has no aperture to give the smallest spot size at the drum.

5.2.3.4 Beam Coincidence


The purpose of beam coincidence (beam_co) is to get the 2 beams to be coincident (on top of each other) at the POD. The X deflector can only deflect the beam in the X direction i.e. horizontally when viewed on the POD (assuming the optics base is in the machine). The Y deflector can only deflect the beam in the Y direction i.e. vertically on the POD. The result is that at coincidence, the beams will normally not be exactly centred on the POD. The beams will be within 100 m of the POD centre for a new machine but may be up to 200 m from the centre after optics modules are replaced in the field. Beam-co is achieved as follows: Adjust the powers in the X and Y beams to be 200 W on the POD. Measure the positions of the X and Y beams on the POD (X1 and Y1 in Figure 5.20). Deflect both beams by a small amount. Measure the new positions of the X and Y beams (X2 and Y2 in Figure 5.20). The coincidence point is where the lines on the graph cross. Calculate the deflection required to make the beams coincident. Adjust the deflection and check the accuracy of coincidence. If outside tolerance limits, repeat beam_co until within limits.

Figure 5.20 POD beam_co measurements

5.2.3.5 Drum Coincidence


When the beams have been made co-incident on the POD, there may still be a small offset between the beams at the drum. This is corrected by adding small X and Y static offsets to the deflector drive values calculated from beam_co. The required offsets are measured by running the Co-incidence X and Y test patterns from the Optics MMI and the results are stored in the Final Values table.

5.2.3.6 Exposure Calibration


The purpose of Exposure Calibration is to set a constant energy density level measured in J/cm2 at the drum. At lower resolutions, for example, 48l/mm, since the traverse is moving more quickly than at 96l/mm, more power is required to achieve the same energy density. The power level is measured directly at the drum using a Fast Photo Detector (FPD). The FPD is mounted behind the drum at the service end and a hole in the drum allows the beam from the spinner to pass through. As the spinner rotates past the FPD, the pulse of power is converted to a photodiode current. This is passed to FHMB4, converted to a DC voltage level and then read by an ADC. Exposure calibration is affected by spinner contamination or optics aging, both of which degrade over a long period. Exposure calibration is not affected by temperature or humidity. Therefore, exposure calibration only needs to be run once per week or if the spinner mirror has been cleaned. Exposure calibration is run from the MMI. Exposure calibration works as follows:
1. Start the spinner. 2. Move the traverse to the FPD position which is defined in

Circuit Breaker and Undervolt Detector (15A)
This is an On/Off (2-pole) rocker switch/circuit breaker for the operator that includes under-voltage release coil (for the emergency stop circuit) and short-circuit protection. The main circuit breaker is tripped in the event of a loss of voltage. To reconnect the load, the switch must be reset so as to avoid the automatic restart of the machine.

24 V PSU (Emergency)
A +24 V (30 W, 1.2 A) dedicated supply for the emergency stop circuit. It includes a selectable transformer setting for 240/110 VAC at 47-63 HZ. The AC input is protected by fusing; there is also overvoltage protection. Output regulation is <0.1 %.

Fusing
See Section 6.5.3.

Emergency Stop Control


See Figure 6.6. This facility is for use by the engineer or operator to power off the machine during an emergency. The switch is fitted to the PTM (fully-automatic) and on the Engine (manual and semi-automatic).
WARNING: AC Mains supply is still live at the interlock box when the emergency stop has been pressed. Make sure the AC supply is removed or switched off at the mains outlet before accessing the box.

While the system is operating normally the mains supply from the mains input filter generates a +24 V DC supply from the +24 V PSU (Emergency). This voltage is routed through to the emergency safety contactor coil which switches the contactor.

While closed, the contactor routes +24 V to the circuit breaker (On/Off switch). At the same time the circuit breaker switchs AC voltage to the drum vacuum relay, the RFI box, the PTM and the Autofeeder. Pressing the emergency stop button causes a +24 V undervoltage to the circuit breaker which trips the AC supply. The drop in voltage to the circuit breaker is sensed internally by its integral undervolt detector and causes the circuit breaker to switch off. Supply is not restarted until the steps below are completed in the following sequence:
1. The pressed emergency stop red button is turned in a clockwise direction to its reset

position.
2. The ON/OFF circuit breaker is switched on again.

This resumes the +24 VDC supply and re-energises the emergency stop contactor.

Emergency Stop Replacements


If any component of the emergency stop circuit is replaced or altered, the stop operation must be fully verified before the system is restored to the customer.

6.3.5 Interlocks Control


This section applies to all variants. This section provides further information for the engineer to service the interlock system. Refer to Volume 1 Section 3.3 for interlock safety warnings and Volume 1 Section 3.16 the location of the cover sensors. See Volume 2 Chapter 2-10 for views of the interlock cable interconnections and Volume 2 Section 8.1 for a description of the cable pin voltages and signals. See also Volume 2 Section 3.2.1 for a description of the Autofeeder interlock control circuit.

Interlock Box Assemblies


The interlock sensor system operates as a feedback loop circuit with a keyswitch (Normally Open contact) to enable the circuit. Supply voltage to the circuit is +24 V. Interlock sensors (and the external laser door switch) return a signal to the safety relay located inside the interlock box. The main interlock assemblies are: Sensors: interlock sensors on the platesetter and an external sensor that controls the

VOLUME 2 (6-12) P OWER AND C ONTROL M ODULES

DLA (Designated Laser Light) for the platesetter room. Safety relay (Schmersal AES1235): this monitors the status of the interlock sensors and operates two microprocessor-controlled relays switch on/off drives for the: +24 VDC supply to the two interlock contactors on the Engine and the Autofeeder. See below for a description of the AES 1235 operation. Contactor (Siemens 3RT1016): when energised from the safety relay 24 V supply, it closes the following contacts:

and opens the following contact:


D)

Since the contactor forms an inductive load it requires a separate plug-in surge suppressor. A contactor of the same type also controls the AC supply to the elevator motor. See Volume 2 Section 3.2.1 for the Autofeeder contactor. Fuses (F1 to F3): protect the +24V input and the interlock feed circuit. Fuse rating is: 1 A, 250 V. Interlock Override Keyswitch: located on the Engine. While the key is inserted it is not possible to shut the service side cover. Setting the switch bypasses the cover interlock sensors and the external interlock. It opens an NC contact that alerts the LSB to indicate (on the MMI) that the interlocks are in an overridden state.

Interlock Replacements
Use the information in Section 6.3.5 above to replace an interlock assembly.

Interlock Checks
The interlock operation for the safety relay is tested by opening and closing each cover in turn to check if the safety relay automatically operates when a cover is shut. Any functional failures disables the circuit until the fault is fixed. To check the contactor, open a cover and determine if power has been removed from the MMI Error Handling screen.

Interlock Operation
See also Volume 2 Chapter 2-10 for views of the interlock cable interconnections and Volume 2 Section 8.1 for a description of the cable pin voltages and signals. The safety relay monitors inputs from the interlock sensors (covers, external interlock and override keyswitch). If the inputs indicate a suitable state (covers closed, override not on), then the two safety relay contacts are closed. Contact 2: routes +24 V from the Power Filter PCB to energise the two interlock contactors, one in the interlock box and the other in the Autofeeder. Interlock Box Contactor: when energised by the +24 V from the safety relay contact routes:

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 2 (6-13)


A) B) C)

+24 V to the safety relay to confirm it has operated +24 V to the FHMB and STB +36 V to the STB

Autofeeder Contactor: when energised by the +24 V from the safety relay contact, routes the 3-phase mains from the inverter to the elevator motor. A contactor confirm signal is routed to FHMB2. When the safety relay detects an unsuitable condition (cover open or external interlock problem AND interlocks NOT overridden), the two safety relay contacts are opened. They put the machine in a safe condition as follows: +24 V from the Power Filter PCB to the two interlock contactors is cut off:
A)

Interlock box contactor drops out and: safety relay detects that the contactor has dropped out +24V is not supplied to the FHMBs and STB (operator accessible motors cannot move) +36 V is not supplied to the STB (the spinner cannot move).

B)

Autofeeder contactor drops out and: mains supply to/from invertor to elevator motor is cut off.

In addition to the action of the safety relay, signals are sent from the cover interlocks and the interlock override switch to the LSB. If the LSB detects an unsuitable condition it issues an error code on the MMI.

Safety Relay Monitor Operation (AES 1235)


The AES 1235 operates as an interlock system monitor with two independent safety circuits, each consisting of a microprocessor and a relay. All inputs to the module are monitored and controlled by the device. Its main features are: two enabling paths, both having normally open (NO) contacts in series operating voltage of 24 V (+15 %) short-circuit protection (FS1). All inputs to the relay are monitored by the processors; if one of the switch contacts monitoring the interlock sensor changes state, while the interlock remains closed, then both safety relay circuits are disabled. When an interlock sensor is opened the safety relay outputs are disabled. Two microprocessors check the state of the switch inputs to determine if: failure of the interlock switch to change state shorting or break across the switch cable circuit cabling failure of the safety relay contacts to change state failure of the internal module circuitry failure of one of the processors. If a fault is determined, the operation of the safety relay is blocked and the fault type is shown on a diagnostic LED. If all the tests are satisfactory, the safety relays are energised. While the relays are closed, external sensors and module internal components are continuously monitored. The safety relay also includes over-current protection for the two contacts. The output (Y1) is High when the relay contacts are open and the outputs are disabled.

Safety Relay - Using the LED Diagnostics


The safety relay uses LEDs to indicate a variety of switching conditions (see Table 6.1) and failures (see Table 6.2). The error indication is cleared once the cause of the fault has been rectified and after all the interlocked covers have been tested (opened/closed) by the safety relay.

External Interlocks
See also Volume 2 Chapter 2-10 for views of the interlock cable interconnections and Volume 2 Section 8.1 for a description of the cable pin voltages and signals. An external laser interlock is fitted as an option by the customer to any suitable area where personnel need protection from accidental laser risks. This facility is disabled/ enabled by the wiring connections to the external laser connector at the rear of Engine external connector plate. The lock needs to be a 2-way switch with one way normally closed and the other normally open. Switch toggling for each way should be at the same time, or else the safety relay will indicate faulty wiring. Operate machine without an external interlock: this is the normal setup and uses an override plug on the connector. Operate machine with an external interlock: this may be required if the Class IV laser is seen as an unacceptable risk. The wiring arrangement on the external plug is as follows: Door is closed in the safe condition: pins 2 and 7 are shorted and pins 4 and 9 open. Door is open in an unsafe condition: pins 2 and 7 are open and pins 4 and 9 shorted.

6.6.1.2 EODD PCB Operation


See Figure 6.14. The EODD provides a number of expose control functions: Generates the EOD DIFF sine/cosine waves used to deflect the beams. Serves as a control interface between the LSB DAC target settings and the EODs. Receives interlock status signals from each interlocked cover to control the laser and re-directs status signals to the LSB for interpretation.

Status signals are passed to the monitoring LSB which, if necessary, returns an Error Code to the MMI. An OK signal line is returned to the LSB if any one of the interlocked covers are opened. This signal, and the interlock status signals from th interlock covers, allow the LSB to generate the appropriate icon on the MMI showing which cover needs to be closed for scanning to continue.

EOD DIFF Deflector


A 12-bit DAC and a DIFF driver provides a composite DC bias and AC modulation voltage for each EOD. These are passed to the EODHV module that filters the two components and provides the HT drive. The deflector wave outputs, at 500 Hz locked to the spinner rotation, are: EOD X is sine wave EOD Y is cosine wave. EOD sine and cosine data is derived from the deflector LUTs on the LSB which are addressed (updated) at a rate scaled to the spinner revolutions. Up to 2048 updates per spinner revolution are possible, depending on the resolution selected.

VACUUM AND AIR CONTROL


This chapter describes drum vacuum/air blow system for plates in the drum, and the air knife and purified air system for controlling contaminants:

7.1 Vacuum and Contamination Control


Volume 2 Section 2.3 describes the sequence of steps for moving, de-skewing, conforming and ejecting a plate inside the drum. Figure 7.1 shows the vacuum/blow sub-system control for the drum and air knife/curtain.

7.1.1 Drum Vacuum and Drum Blow


This provides plate vacuum conformance and ejection inside the drum. The vacuum is sourced by an external pump with AC power switched from FHMB4 control to relay BV5; drum blow air is provided by internal compressors with AC power controlled by FHMB4 to relay BV31. Two types of vacuum/blow configurations are fitted on Violet machines:
A) B)

7.1.2 Contamination Control


This is provided by two separate functions:

base. This module, located outside the Engine, is not controlled by the platesetter system. It operates by supplying a constant flow of high quality clean air which also raises positive air pressure inside the Engine compartment. See Section 7.4.

7.1.2.1 Contamination Managementl


The contamination management system uses an inline air knife/air curtain to remove contaminants, such as:

The air knife/curtain assemblies are described in Volume 2 Section 3.4.2.2.


NOTE: To ensure contamination is reduced to the minimum, all scheduled service cleaning procedures, described in Section Volume 3 Section 1.5, must be followed.

The aim of contamination control is to:


1. Prevent debris settling on any flat surfaces inside the platesetter where there is a risk

2. Ensure plates are clean before a drum load. 3. Isolate system cooling fans from the drum interior. 4. Form effective seals on machine covers to prevent entry of debris. 5. Ensure there are no contaminants on the emulsion side of the plate. 6. Provide positive air pressure inside the Engine. 7. Provide a clean environment inside the optics base.

7.2 Drum Vacuum and Drum Blow


Drum vacuum is required for conforming plates to the drum before exposure to ensure quality imaging. Drum blow control is applied:
A) B)

Before imaging to provide a bed a of air for the plate as it enters the drum After imaging to release the plate quickly from drum vacuum and assist ejection to the output transport.

Drum vacuum and drum blow is controlled by sequencing software during the plate load, plate conform, plate expose and plate eject stages. The plate handling sequence for each variant is described in Volume 2 Section 2.3.

7.2.1 Drum Configurations


7.2.1.1 Drum with Manifolds
See Figure 7.2. This section describes the drum blow configurations used for machine IDs 118 and onwards (New) and their differences with the pre-118 (Old) drum configurations: Old - ID 1 to ID 64 - these operate with 11 activated blow holes Old - ID 65 to ID 117 - these have 9 activated blow holes and a second manifold for additional 7 blow holes which are plugged, but capable of being upgraded in the field. New - ID 118 onwards - these have 9 and 7 activated blow holes described below. The new drum vacuum/blow system is designed to improve the throughput of large plates (greater than 350 mm) and small plates (less than 350 mm). Sets of drum holes, starting from the drum input end, are arranged around the outside of the New drum as follows:
1. 2. 3.

Long Blow (LB): a set of 9 holes used to release the plate. Note that the two end holes are plugged. Short Blow (SB): an additional set of 7 holes added to the new drum. It operates at the same time as LB but provides extra lift to prevent plate scratching. Main Vacuum (MV): a set of 23 holes provide the main conform vacuum after the plate has been de-skewed. Drum blow is applied to release the vacuum and plate after imaging. Lead Edge (LE): a set of 23 holes that operate on non-punch machines (Web) to vacuum and secure the leading edge of the plate, and prevent it from skewing when applying vacuum to the rest of the plate.

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 2 (7-7)

manifolds and solenoids distribute vacuum/air to a drum with the new configurations shown in Section 7.2.3. Control of vacuum and air to the drum is from sets of solenoid switches that regulate the precise time and flow of vacuum and air to the drum for improved registration and ejection. During a routine service these assemblies are checked for correct operation.
3. Compressor box: uses two compressors (Nitto) to provide air for drum blow and the

air knife. This box is located on the user side above the periscope on the righthand side. The compressors are switched on by BV31 located inside the interlock box.

7.3 Air Knife


7.3.1 Air Knife (Compressor)
NOTE: the compressor version is fitted on later production machines.

See Figure 7.12 and Volume 2 Figure 3.56. The air knife, located before the input transport module, blows clean air across an advancing plate before it reaches the drum. This removes surface debris from the plate before there is a transfer of contaminants to the drum. The air knife system consists of the following assemblies:
1. 2.

Air knife pipe: this pipe, located above the input module, directs small streams of air down to the plate and towards the plate feed area. BV41: this solenoid, located on the valve cage, controls the flow of compressed air from the compressor box to the air knife as a plate passes underneath.

7.4 Air Purifier (PAT)


The PAT-506id operates as a separate module supplying highly purified air to the drum from a flexible ducting connection to a manifold on the Engine cover (service side). Clean air from the Engine is also drawn into the optics base by a laser cooling fan. Purified airflow reduces contamination and thereby improves performance by reducing time spent cleaning the spinner mirror and checking for image quality.
NOTE: The PAT module is always located at the side of the Engine and not be positioned under the Buffer. Make sure the module is positioned away from any heat sources, such as, the vacuum pump and processor.

Two types of Air Purifiers are available, depending on the local AC supply:
1. 110 VAC 2. 230 VAC.

VOLUME 2 (7-22) VACUUM AND A IR C ONTROL

7.4.1 Servicing the PAT


Clean air on the PAT is supplied via three (staged) filters which need to be replaced when a warning beep/LED flashing occurs. Although this warning indicates that the filters are due for replacement, customers can still operate the machine for a recommended short period. Servicing the PAT depends on the local arrangement between the customer and the PAT distributor. FFEI (UK) are able to provide more information on local PAT servicing and parts supply.
CAUTION: Failure to replace filters as recommended could result in lower optics efficiency and increased service visits.

Instructions on using the Air Purifier are in a separate OEM Installation and Operation Guide. On installation, the PAT unit needs to be registered, via the Internet, with the manufacturers before it is able to start operating. The PAT 506id has a tricolour LED display that indicates the status of each filter stage as follows:
1. 2. 3.

Green: the purifier is operating normally. Yellow: specific filters have two weeks before their scheduled replacement Red: filter replacement is overdue but the customer is allowed a two week period before the PAT shuts down automatically.

NOTE: Note that on later Engines (serial no.100 onwards), automatic shutdown is disabled. However, for these machines FFEI recommend the filters are replaced before the two week period has finished. For earlier machines, automatic shutdown is disabled by contacting PAT and replacing the control panel.

7.4.2 Service Filtering for the Optics Base


Before accessing the optics base interior, purified air from the PAT is diverted to the base using the service manifold tool (Part No 7A04975). A flow of clean air from the ducting prevents contamination while the optics modules are exposed.

1. Switch off the platesetter and the PAT. 2. Loosen the PAT filter hose from the Engine door manifold and move the PAT to the
optics base.

3. Remove the optics base cover panel and fix the service manifold as shown in
Figure 7.15. Attach the duct to the service tool and switch on the PAT.

Figure 1.1 Interlock override - keyswitch location (fully-automatic)

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 3 (1-3)

In the interlock override state, the MMI display shows a background pattern of laser warning symbols. After completing the service work, return the interlocks to their enabled state by removing the key and replacing the engine side cover. Note that you cannot install the cover if the key is still in the lock.

1.3 Opening Service Covers


1.3.1 Manual and Semi-Automatic
The service side door on Manual and Semi-Automatic machines are locked by screw fixings shown in Figure 1.2. Note that earlier machines may have doors without the screw fixings. Access to the optics base and RFI box is the same as the Fully-Automatic machine.

1.3.2 Fully-Automatic
All service covers are locked by screw fixings that are only removed by an approved engineer. The location and number of the fixings is shown in Figure 1.2 below.

VOLUME 3 (1-4) R OUTINE MAINTENANCE

Removing Covers:
1. Unlock the cover using a pozi-screwdriver to remove the M4 Panhead screw
fixings at the top and bottom.

2. Remove the cover by lifting it up and then away from the frame. 3. Avoid damaging the screw lock tabs on the bottom of the cover when it is set
aside.

Replacing Covers:
4. After completing a service visit, make sure that the removed covers are replaced
and securely locked again. This is to ensure the safety of the operator.
NOTE: The engine doors can be lifted off their frame hinges to allow better access to the machine.

1.4 Maintenance Schedule


Recommended servicing visits for the platesetter are every six months where the engineer needs to perform checks and procedures based on the schedule below. Before a service visit, make sure the operator has completed all the routine maintenance tasks described in the Operator's Manual. Routine service procedures are constantly added and revised to ensure product reliability over the long term. Make sure that you have consulted the latest releases of the Technical Information Sheets (TIS) provided by FFEI (UK).
NOTE: The cleaning procedures in the Operators Manual are carried out weekly, or more often if the machine scans more than 200 plates a day. For high volume production, inspection of the platesetter should determine if daily cleaning is required.

Complete the following scheduled tasks:

Six-Month Visit:
1. Discuss any problems the customer has had with the machine since the last
service visit.

2. Check that all operator maintenance tasks have been completed. 3. Output a full-size image to check for correct machine operation. 4. Output and check four full-size images for any indications of quality faults. 5. Check error statistics and the error log (elog) file: see Volume 2 Section 1.5.3. 6. Complete the required cleaning procedures: see Section 1.5. 7. Check and adjust the punch if 35,000 punch operations have occurred since the
last maintenance visit: see Section 1.6.2.

8. Check for push bar pitch ring flake containment: see Section 1.6.3. 9. Check that the drum blow system is operational: see Section 1.6.4. 10. Check the extinction levels of the lasers: see Section 1.6.5. 11. Check the absolute limit switches on the elevator: see Section 1.6.7. 12. Check the trolley and cassette for damage: see Section 1.6.7.1.

L UXEL P LATESETTER VOLUME 3 (1-5)

13. Check the paper detect sensors: see Section 1.6.8. 14. Check and re-align the traverse ball cage and carriage: see Section 1.7.1. 15. Check plate output: see Section 1.8. 16. Run the levelling utility to check for ball cage creep: see Section 1.7.1. 17. Check the optics system for Focus: see Volume 3 Section 4.4. 18. Check the optics system for image form on the plate: see Section 4.7. 19. Carry out the vacuum maintenance procedures listed in the OEM manual. 20. Check the PAT unit for correct operation, change of filters and note if the door
gasket is intact.

21. Complete the pre-cautionary diagnostics tasks: see Section 1.6.6. 22. Output and check a full-size image for correct machine operation before
returning it to the customer.

Twelve-Month Visit:
1. Replace the push bar spring shoes, see Volume 3 Section 2.4.5.

1.5 Cleaning Procedures


Customers need to be aware of the importance of a clean environment in and around the platesetter.

1.5.1 Cleaning the Spinner Mirror and L6 Lens


CAUTION: Avoid touching or marking the lens (L6) in front of the spinner mirror.

Only use tissues/wipes soaked with IPA.

1. Access the spinner mirror.


CAUTION: Only use light pressure when applying a wet wipe. Never rub a coated mirror surface with a dry wipe. Only use wet tissues or wipes.

2. Soak a lens tissue with IPA. 3. Draw the lens tissue across the spinner mirror without applying direct pressure. 4. Repeat step 2. and 3. until the mirror is clean.
The tissue must be kept damp and changed frequently throughout this procedure. Check for solvent streaking when the cleaning is complete.

1.5.1.1 Focusing Lens (L6)


The lens is held by an assembly of two metal plates, adjusted by screw fixings and two springs. These are accurately set at the factory and are not field adjustable.

1. Use a cotton bud, wrapped with a lens tissue soaked in IPA, and gently clean

the lens on both sides, see Figure 1.3. Check that there are no fibres remaining on the lens.
