Smart Print Controller configuration


RIP Server Template Config Files

The RIP Server configuration mechanism works by modifying template files and copying them into the RIP Server file share.

They are called "template files" because they have keywords that are automatically replaced with correct values by SPC before they are copied to the RIP Server.

The template files are stored in the C:\ProgramData\Smart Print Controller\ConfigFiles folder.

Adjustments to SPC configuration files should only be performed with guidance from your GGS support representative.

Harlequin Direct JSON Config

RIP Direct mode Harlequin Direct config files are found in RipDirect\RIPServer_?????.json

The RIP Ahead mode Harlequin Direct config file is found in RipAhead\RIPServer_RipAhead.json

Screen Direct mode Harlequin Direct config files are found in ScreenDirect\RIPServer_?????_ScreenDirect.json

Reserved Keywords: Any word surrounded by $$ (for example, $CommandPort$) is automatically replaced with the value inserted by SPC when the file is copied to the RIP Server.

Some Harlequin Direct output plugins have their own JSON config files. These are stored alongside the Harlequin Direct config file and named after the plugin (for example, Meteor_Output_Plugin.json).

Harlequin Core PostScript Config

For a standard (non-QI) RIP Server, the Harlequin Core PostScript config file is in PostScript\DFE_Default.

The QI Harlequin Core PostScript config file is in PostScript\QI

Reserved keywords: Any word surrounded by $$ (for example, $HD_DPIX$) is automatically replaced with the value inserted by SPC when the file is copied to the RIP Server.

Meteor Config

When the Meteor Pane is installed, Meteor config files are inside the ConfigFiles folder in Meteor\?????.cfg.

Reserved keywords: Any word surrounded by $$ (for example,. $BPP$) is automatically replaced with the value inserted by SPC when the file is copied to the RIP Server.

Smart Print Controller Config

Spc.exe.config

This file is stored in the installation folder next to the executable and is read only at first launch of the application.

Do not manually edit this file during normal installation and operation.

Some tuning parameters in the file are not available through the UI; adjust these with care.

Configuration files on the RIP Server

Regardless of the print mode and name of the template config file, the main JSON configuration file used by Harlequin Direct is always stored in a ConfigFiles subfolder of the RIP Server share as HarlequinDirect_Default.json.

When Meteor output is enabled, the Meteor config file is stored here as Meteor_Default.cfg.

When a plugin has its own JSON config file (for example,. Meteor_Output_Plugin.json), it is also stored here.

The PostScript config file used by Harlequin Core is stored in the SW\TestConfig folder in the RIP Server share.

Do not edit these files, as they are overwritten by SPC during an upload operation.
