    What Is a Printer Duty Cycle?


    What do you mean by duty cycle? Is the number of pages a laser printer can print in month using the default quality settings?

    Printer Duty Cycle is related to a specification of the printer that is generally used to define the workload print printer can handle. It is usually measured in months and can be a surprisingly high number. On some machines, could carry out the mechanism for long before they reached the final of the warranty period when it left continuous printing.

    From the engineering point of view, duty cycle is the relationship between "duty" to "off duty" time, often as a percentage, which makes a bit more understandable. For example, a duty cycle of 100% means that the equipment will operate continuously. A duty cycle of 50% means that will operate 50% of the time and then needs a rest. This makes sense if one reference. for example. 20 pages per minute in a cycle of 50% means it will print 10 pages in the first 30 seconds, then you need 30 seconds of rest.

    The benefit of having a manufacturer's duty cycle contained in the printer manual is that the damage is less likely to be made to the printer during periods of high use. Without this estimated number, users unknowingly exceed the capabilities of the printer and printer depletion much earlier than expected. For the manufacturer, a benefit of the list of the work cycle is that the user is less likely to damage the printer due to excessive use, while still under warranty. This reduces the likelihood that the user requests a replacement printer.
