Set up the details of the digital devices that you use, in order to plan and impose the printing work correctly. When you add a device in Setup, the device is automatically added in Device Track (in the Devices pane) and when you select the device, its device capabilities are displayed in the right pane of the Digital Device dialog box. The settings are read-only and cannot be changed.

The tabs below the settings (ScreeningFinishingPrinting ParamsJob Setup and Substrate Options)  contain detailed settings loaded from the digital device. To define the default values of some of these settings, select the relevant check box. The value you select will appear as the default value of the setting in the Digital Job Ticket Editor.

    The new digital device is displayed in the new row of the list of digital devices in the center pane.
    The digital device is saved to the database and can be used in jobs. The settings from the device capabilities are sent to Prinergy's Setup via JMF connectivity. 
  8. After you add the digital device, click Import Substrates to import the substrates that are used with this device into Setup so that you can use them in the jobs you submit to your device.

If you change any settings on the connected device such as changing the default setting in any of the device settings, click Reload device capabilities to update the changes in Setup.

Note: If you try to import substrates and/or reload device capabilities (in Setup > Equipment > Digital Device) from a connected HP press or DFE while this device is down, the substrates and/or device settings will no longer be visible in the Digital Job Ticket Editor when you submit a job. Once the device is up and running, you must re-import the substrates and/or reload the device capabilities so that they are visible again in the Digital Job Ticket Editor. [PRINERGY-44749]
