IDP Smart 70 - 2 Print stations confguration

Modified on Fri, 15 Dec 2023 at 11:45 AM


If you are using the IDP Smart 70 with 2 print stations there are a few things to check to ensure the solution will print as expected.


1. First Check the printer is “Ready” and States the correct configuration on the LCD IPFPO. (there is always one letter for each module connected)

2. If it says Multi termination or check config check all connections are in back and all units are powered on . go into System config menu on the LCD and let it pick up the config again. 

3. Check the system config setting on LCD menu,  left printer is set to ‘master’ and the right printer to ’slave’.

4. Check the 2 print stations are linked by a second USB cable.

5. In the driver now you should have ‘Printing’ and ‘printing 2’ tabs.

6. Set printing > Sides to Top and Printing 2 sides to bottom and tick Do printing on both pages as per below. 


Finally what software do they print from as this will make a difference.


Our Image Base software sends a regular 2 page print job for each card. The driver splits the pages page one for front

Page 2 for back which is the way it should work. I have been testing with a brand new build of card presso (not on presso website) and have had issues as it seems to use the SDK to control the printer to print.
