Page yields test

The ISO / IEC 19752 method is used by most manufacturers to test the yields of monochrome printers. A small number of toner cartridges that are still sold offer page returns based on the 5% coverage method. Some manufacturers have their own methods with a page yield of 3.5% and 4%, which are used to calculate the standard ISO test methods. Each producer has its own method of yielding 1%, 2% or 3%, based on a 5 'coverage.
Page yield data does not predict the exact yield you will get from a printer cartridge, but it should be used as a starting point for comparison.
Some cartridges consume faster than others, some cartridges deliver fewer pages than the ISO standard and some cartridges more than one page above the standard. Some colours can be used more per page than others, resulting in a lower page yield. Your own results may vary slightly as the yield figures are based on continuous printing, but the actual yield will vary considerably from the number of pages printed and what you would do in your own house.
To determine the page yield, we use a number of standard examples, and the page yields specified are based on continuous printing until the ink runs out or the end of the life span is reached. When the cartridge reaches the end of its life, a standard page is printed for the first five pages of the document, and if not, the standard sets of five pages are reprinted for each page. In the case of a cartridge that has reached the end or near the end of its life cycle, all standard pages will be printed by the end of its life cycle (in this case in the second year).
The yield depends on a number of factors, including the printed content and the way it is printed. Similarly, the stated yield is not intended as the maximum yield of all pages printed with the cartridge, but as the average yield for the first five pages of the document for each cartridge.
There is no single industry - broad testing methodology, although people are able to compare page yields between different printer manufacturers.
The specific ISO / IEC standard used depends on whether the printer is a monochrome or a colour device, and it depends on the size of the inkjet printing and whether or not it is in a limitless printing mode. In the default driver settings, the inkjet yield is determined by the number of pages printed with the standard Windows printer driver. If the ISO standard does not allow for a specific document or photo to be printed, most manufacturers print about 24 selected photos. The printer has an introductory cartridge in its box that can print either the size of glossy photo paper or the cartridges we have here on the print zone page.
The standard for colour printers was introduced by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO / IEC) and the World Printing Association (WPA) when the standard was published at the end of 2006.
