The transport speed is 18.3 (6 ft.) per minute which allows processing up to seven hundred twenty 8-by
10-inch sheets per hour. This requires that paper be fed into the machine with a 2-inch spacing between sheets
and the sheets are fed two at a time, side by side.
Processor Controls. The controls and indicators of the Kodak Royalprint Processor, Model 417, consist
of the following: (fig 2-1).
Figure 2-1. Controls and indicators
a. POWER Switch. This switch controls power to the processor.
b. STANDBY/OPERATE Switch. When placed in the OPERATE position, it energizes all circuits for
normal operation. When placed in the STANDBY position, the processor is not operational. This conserves
water, power and chemicals. It should be placed in STANDBY whenever the processor will not be used for more
than 5 minutes. The cycling timer will automatically run the processor for 3 minutes, shut it down for 9 minutes,
then run it again for 3 minutes. This cycling will continue until you are ready to use the machine again.
c. READY Light. The READY light, which is red, comes on when the power switch is ON and the
Standby/Operate switch is on OPERATE. When the processor is warmed up and ready to operate, the light will
blink on and off.
