English translation:test printing page to show how evenly the ink is being distributed from the printer nozzles
Explanation:
The printout is often in the form of a "stair step" pattern, in the case of this printer, there are obviously 13 ink supply "taps", or spraying nozzles. Each "pass" of the printhead will add one more dot or line, thus creating a pattern that looks like the steps of a flight of stairs.
