Alarm printer is printing one alarm per page.

Issue

Even though the "Suppress form feeds when printing alarms" option is selected in the Workstation Preferences, alarm printer is printing only one alarm per page.

Product Line

Andover Continuum

Environment

  • CyberStation
  • Alarms Printer

Cause

The alarm printer is issuing a form feed at the end of every alarm message.

Resolution

If the "Suppress form feeds when printing alarms" option is set to true in the Workstation Preferences, this issue has to be handled at the printers internal settings by adjusting the page length and other settings.
