Large and Small Character inkjet coder

Inkjet Technology by Hewlett Packard

Based on the proven Hewlett Packard thermal ink jet printhead, Evolution 1 delivers bold, fully formed characters from the first print to the last. Evolution 1 gives you a full 300 DPI at production line speeds of up to 200 feet per minute

Two character heights are supplied as standard on EVOLUTION. Print a one line message in 1/2" characters, or two lines of 7/32". Selecting the character size is accomplished through the font key on the hand held controller.

Each printhead module is manufactured with a dovetail slot on one side and a dovetail slide on the other. Up to three additional printheads can be attached on a single bracket by inserting the slide on one into the slot on the other. A small RS485 data cable is then used to connect the modules. This allows the hand held controller to network all of the printheads on the production line.

Ink Supply:

Built into the printhead is a 42cc ink reservoir. Once the ink in the cartridge has been depleted, it can be taken out, disposed of and a new ink cartridge inserted in just seconds. Adding another printhead is a simple as sliding it on
