It is thus important to know that, if your prints cover more thn 5% of the page, your yield will be lower than the advertised one. LaserJet Printers are complex systems that may use more than one color cartridge when printing text and graphics. These standards are the same for all manufacturers worldwide which allows objective comparisons of page yields between printers and brands. This document is intended for equipment used in the office space and does not apply to production volume or large format printing machines where the major cost of ownership is not caused by the consumable yield measured in this document. Keep in mind that page yield is oage one component of cost, and that factors such as quality, reliability, productivity, and efficiency affect cost as well. Knowing this will allow you to lower your cost per page. Black is reported separately as an individual yield.Next
To account for variations that may occur, a minimum of 3 cartridges of each cartridge type is tested in each of 3 printers. A minimum of nine cartridges or cartridge sets are tested until they reach end of life. How are page yields calculated? An extreme level of humidity can alos have negative effects on the pare, such as warping or wrinkling. An example of the standard page shown is shown below. A minimum of three cartridge sets are tested on three different printers to avoid bias due to printer variability.Next
What is Individual yield versus a composite Yield for color cartridges? The same can be said of inkets alignment and cycles. Industry research has shown that the average page coverage, represented as the percentage of the page containing toner, for a black and white page is between 4 and 5%. The page yield advertised on cartidge is a bit like the Miles per gallon yield for cars. A cartridge is determined to be at end-of-life when the test pages fade or, for some printers, when the printer automatically stops due to end-of-life detection. A page full of ink is 100% coverage and will empty your cartridge 20 times faster. Your email address will not be published.Next
All printer manufacturers are now able to utilize the same methodology when measuring cartridge yield. Both home and office printers and papers are designed to operate at their best in environments with a relative humidity level of about 50% and a temperature of 22C. Until now, printer manufacturers have used a variety of methodologies to measure cartridge yields, making it challenging for you to accurately compare brands. A cartridge is determined to be at end-of-life when the test pages fade or, for some printers, when the printer automatically stops due to end-of-life detection. This is done on 3 printers with 3 sets of cartridges on each one, for a total of 9 tests.Next
No other claims can be made from this testing regarding quality, reliability, etc. Likewise, the declared yield is not intended to be the minimum number of pages that the cartridge will print. Why are page yields listed as a cartridge and printer system? Please first with a verified email before subscribing to alerts. Here is haw that page yield is calculated for all printer brands and what affects it. If you have any questions or suggestions regarding the accessibility of this site, please. If the document is revised or amended, you will be notified by email. This document could also be applied to the printer component of any multifunctional device that has a digital input-printing path i.
Page yield for black and white printers The black and white page shown in the opposite image. As a result, the actual page yield will vary considerably higher or lower depending upon factors such as page coverage, job size, media type, environmental conditions, end-of-life determination, and duplex or single-sided printing. Maintaining your rooms as close to this as possible will help maximise the duration of both your cartridges and printer. You can now see why photos use up your ink so quickly. Additionally, actual yield varies considerably based on factors such as the content of printed pages, typical printer job size, the environmental conditions during operation and the amount of color printing relative to monochrome printing. The test is based on a standard suite of five pages color or a single page monochrome printed consecutively until the cartridge reaches end-of-life. Because the printer environment can affect page yield, the testing environment is controlled at a temperature of 23.Next
All copyright requests should be addressed to. You can see an example in the image below. The quantity of ink used by a print is directly proportional to the quantity and size of the stuff you print. The standards recommend obtaining cartridges from a variety of manufacturing dates and locations for testing. Individual cartridges can perform above and below this average due to variation in the cartridge manufacturing process. Products that work reliably will ultimately save you time and money. Keep in mind that page yield is just one component of cost, and that factors such as quality, reliability, productivity and efficiency affect cost as well.Next
Also, black ink almost always has a lower cost per page than colored inks. When you choose a LaserJet printer, make sure you consider your individual printing needs.
