Identification for the Canon multi-function printers

A smart card is used to identify oneself on the Smartcard printers (e.g. HSL travel card, newer HY ID card or student cards). You can also purchase a specifically designed printing card from Unigrafia online store.

The university printing service is provided by Unigrafia Oy. More detailed information on printing is provided here.

Identification

A smartcard is used to identify oneself on the Smartcard printers (e.g. HSL travel card, a new type of UH ID card or the newest student cards). You can also order a specifically designed printing card from Unigrafia webshop.

The first time, the card is registered with one’s username and password. After that, simply showing the card to the device suffices for identification.

Register the card

When using a new card for the first time, you will have to register the card personally using your own university username and its password.

  • Take the card to the read area.

There are differences in the sensitivity of cards. For example, it is worthwhile taking the card out of the protective cover if the equipment does not otherwise identify the card.

  • Touch the User Name text field on the display.

  • Enter your username.
  • Approve the username by touching OK.

  • Enter your password in a similar way.

  • Your username is now associated with the card and you can use it.

Only one card at a time may be associated with your username. If the card is lost, you can register a new card for yourself. After that, no-one can use the old card to print your jobs.
