Simulators have been used for many years to configure and test complex technical processes.

A CLUSTERJET print server can also write the data intended for transmission to a print module as a binary file to a data carrier.

This process can be started automatically during the printing process or manually by the user at any time.

The system writes a separate file for each print movement and bit for each nozzle row.

Each file generated contains the data of a nozzle row intended for a print movement exactly in the sequence in which they are also fed to a print head.

The generated data can be assembled with the TEST-PRINTER software to an image which can be displayed with common image viewing software.

The so-called path data or stroke data can be used for a binary comparison with the input data.
