Purge All Epson x900 ink Channels

Use these files to fire all nozzles on all channels of an Epson x900 printer.
These files require QuadToneRIP available here: http://www.quadtonerip.com/html/QTRdownload.html

Copy 'purge-all.quad' in C:\Program Files (x86)\QuadToneRIP\QuadTone\Quad7900

Then print 'purge-all.tif' (full page) or 'purge-all-2in.tif' (2" strip) through QTR using 'purge-all' curve in QTR curve setup.

See screen capture:

This method uses a curve in QTR to fire each channel at 100% for different grey values. The curve maps specific grey values to 100% ink in specific channels.

Use the batch file 'Vacation_mode.bat' to automatically print a 2" strip. First edit the batch file to reflect your specific printer name and file location. Save 'purge-all-2in.tif' in 'C:\Program Files (x86)\QuadToneRIP\' or equivalent.

Load a roll of cheap paper and use any task scheduler (like Windows Task Scheduler) to schedule a purge as appropriate.

Please note that it will use 10" of paper each time it runs (sorry, I haven't figured that one out yet).

I can't say if a 'vacation mode' is beneficial or even healthy for the printer; use at your own risk.
