While ISO/IEC 24735 cannot be used on copying devices that lack an automatic document feeder or the ability to collate a 4 page job, it includes an informative annex to provide information and guidance on how to test those devices. Annex D describes how to apply the definitions for First Copy Out Time (FCOT) and Continuous Copying Speed in ISO/IEC 21117: "Information to be included in specification sheets and related test methods" which applies to electro-photographic (laser) digital copying machines.

Testing overview

Annex D states testing is to be done with sheet A of the test document from 24735.

Sheet A

Tests are conducted with the device set to plain paper with the quality level at the factory default. For color devices, black-and-white tests are run by setting the device to copy in black-only mode.

Testing is to be done with an 11 copy job from the scan bed.

First Copy Out Time (FCOT) is simply the time from initiation of the copy job until the first copy lands in the output tray.

Continuous Copy Speed is the PPM calculated over the last 10 copies, and excludes the first copy.

B&W maximum speed footnote

What is ISO?

ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is the world's largest developer and publisher of International Standards.

ISO is a network of the national standards institutes of 157 countries, one member per country, with a Central Secretariat in Geneva, Switzerland, that coordinates the system.

ISO is a non-governmental organization that forms a bridge between the public and private sectors. Many of its member institutes are part of the governmental structure of their countries, or are mandated by their government. Other members have their roots uniquely in the private sector, having been set up by national partnerships of industry associations.

This structure ISO enables a consensus to be reached on solutions that meet both the requirements of business and the broader needs of society. For more information on ISO see www.iso.org Non-HP site.

Details of the ISO/IEC printing standards are available at www.iso.org Non-HP site.
