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 II 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 II network through our Evolution-Net software is available as an option.
