Paper regular and glossytransparency film, double-matte polyester film. I first plotted little squares by varying the speed over 1 to 80 and the force over 15 hraphics 66, like HP said. This bit is then sent with the data, so that the receiving machine can run the same check on the data and see if it matches with the sent bit. The computer starts sending again, keeping the plotter fed with data just in time, which is necessary because it only has a 9Kb or so task buffer.
Additional fiber-tip paper pen carousel. It’s a bit confusing, do we enter the literal physical values for force and speed? The pen speed is intimately linked with the hardware and timing circuits, so the actual physical speeds can probably be easily honoured by the plotter. If Graphcs not mistaken, all the bits in a data frame are added up and produce a 1 or a 0 if the sum is odd or even.

You should also reboot the plotter and the computer and see if handshaking works when both come back online. We won’t bother with it here, because by far the easiest way to communicate is via the serial interface.
However, speeds lower than 10 do have meaning, because at the start of the plot, there is a giant difference between VS 1 and VS 2. Changes must be confirmed by pressing enterjust going to the next page won’t lock your settings.
