Buy your printer ink from us, and get a discount on this Evolution printer!
Delivered as the lowest total cost of ownership of any competitive ink jet printing system available, the EV I complete printer system includes a hand-held controller, printhead module with built in product sensor and a flash card reader, mounting bracketry, and power supply.
As a basic system that prints only what is entered into the hand-held controller, the EV I is a fully expandable system. The addition of optional software packages transforms this standard printer to one that rivals much higher priced hi-res large character printers meant for secondary carton coding, and is also a viable alternative to small character continuous ink jet printers and laser coders.
The Evolution EV I is the ideal choice for those applications where only a lot number, product code, or other non-variable text is required.
Inkjet Technology by Hewlett Packard
Designed by Digital Design, the Evolution EV I is powered with ink jet technology by Hewlett Packard. This combination gives you the benefits of an affordable, compact, and efficient design coupled with the reliability of printhead technology by Hewlett Packard.
Lowest Total Cost of Ownership
Delivers the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of any competitive ink jet printing system available.
A Complete System
The Evolution I is complete and ready to install right out of the box. The system includes the mounting bracketry, a hand-held controller with tactile keypad for message entry, a printhead module with internal product sensor and power supply.
Optimum Print Resolution
Evolution EV I delivers bold, highly-legible and fully-formed characters in a print resolution of 300 dpi at production line speed of up to 200 feet per minute.
Variable Character Heights
Print a one line message in 1/2" characters or two lines of text with the 7/32" high characters. Selecting the character size is accomplished through the font key on the hand-held controller.
Built into the printhead is a 42 cc ink reservoir. Once the ink in the cartridge is depleted, it can be taken out, disposed of and a new ink cartridge inserted in just minutes.
Breakaway Printhead Protection
A typical powered conveyor or case taper corrugated cartons can sometimes come through skewed or off center. The horizontal adjusting rod that holds the printhead module has been designed with a breakaway feature that moves the printhead out of harms way should the carton come in contact with it. A detent in the assembly allows you to securely snap the printhead back into position after the misaligned carton has past.
Adding another printhead is as simple as sliding it on. Each printhead module is manufactured with a dovetail slot on one side and a dovetail slide on the other. You can attach up to three additional printheads on a single bracket by inserting the slide on one into the slot on the other. A small RS 485 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.
Evolution EV I is supplied with a built in font style. Optional alternative fonts are available and can be downloaded into the printhead modules through flash card media. Logos are another option, and up to 3 can be downloaded into the message via the data flash card.
The hand held controller has the capability of controlling up to 32 individual printhead modules through the use of a RS 485 data cable. A small data cable is used to connect the modules on the same production line while a longer cable connects them to the next production line in the manufacturing area. The printhead modules have a discreet address which is used to identify them for message entry functions. Complete PC control of the Evolution EV I network through our Evolution-Net software is available as an option.
