Hi Saaqib,

The answer to your question largely depends on the local temperature.

We have plenty of users here in the UK who run Everests virtually all day,
but their offices seldom exceed 20 - 25 degrees Celsius.

However if as I suspect you are based in Pakistan perhaps you have much
higher temperatures?

The Version 4 does have a temperature cut-out.  Are you experiencing
cut-outs?  If you are, and have similar temperatures to the above, there are
two possibilities you could consider.  1) Make sure any circulation fans are
both working and clean of any dust build up which would reduce air flow.  2)
It could be that the temperature sensor is faulty and cutting out at too low
a temperature.

The best people to answer such technical queries are Index in Sweden, the
manufacturers.  Try their Contact Form here:

Subject: [BlindMath] Any Safe Upper Limit for Embossing on Everest-D V4?

Hello NAPUB folks? How are you? 

I have a query. 

Can you plesse suggest a safe upper limit for the number of braille pages to
be embossed --- at one time and without a break --- using the Everest-D V4
braille embosser model manufactured by the Index Braille?
I mean how many braille pages, say, of 40 cells per line and 25 lines per
page can the Everest-D V4 embosser handle without heating up too much and in
the process suffering any significant quick or long-term damage and / or
loss to its over all hardware life? 

And, can you please also specify an upper limit for the number of braille
pages to be embossed over a time interval, say, of upto four hours? 

The paper available here is called aviary [I'm not sure about the correct
spelling.] card paper, with a grammage of approximately 140. [I'm not very
knowledgible about the varieties and technicalities of paper.] 

I've gone through the tech specs page for Everset-D V4 at the Index website,
but there is no such info available over there.

Do you have any info or experience on this subject? Or, do you know anybody
who has?
