AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION AT A
SPECIFIED TIME (TIMER TRANSMISSION)
This feature enables you to set up a transmission or polling operation to be performed automatically at a specified
time up to a week in advance. This allows you to take advantage of off-peak phone rates without having to be there
when the transmission is performed. A combined total of 97 (maximum of 50 on the AR-M351U/AR-M451U) timer
transmission and memory transmission jobs can be stored.

To perform a timer transmission, the document must be scanned into memory. It is not possible to leave the

To set the date and time in the machine, refer to page 2-12 of "Operation manual (for general information and
copier operation))". You can check the machine's currently set time in the screen of steps 3 and 4 below.
Only one polling timer operation can be set up at a time. If you wish to set up multiple timer polling operations,
combine the machines to be polled into a serial polling operation with a timer setting. (Refer to 3-13.)
After a timer transmission is performed, the information (image, destination, etc.) is automatically cleared from
memory. (However, when the document filing function* is used, the scanned document image is stored in the
machine's hard disk. For information on managing stored images, see "Document filing function" in chapter 7 of
the "Operation manual (for general information and copier operation)".)
* Can only be used on the AR-M351N/AR-M451N when a hard disk is not installed.
DAY OF THE WEEK
Other operations can be performed after a timer transmission is set up. If another operation is in progress when
the specified time arrives, the timer transmission will begin when the job in progress is completed.
If a timer transmission job is given priority in the fax job status screen (See "PRIORITY TRANSMISSION OF A STORED
JOB" on page 2-9.), the time setting will be cancelled and the job performed as soon as the current job is completed.
