    Chapter 1 1.7 Safety and Precautions 1.7.1 Safety Precautions 1.7.1.1 Moving Parts 0013-5092 Moving parts of the printer include the carriage unit driven by the carriage motor, the carriage belt, the ink tube, the flexible cable, the feed roller drives the feed motor, the pinch roller, and the purge unit driven by the purge motor.
  • Page 55: Electric Parts

    Chapter 1 - Although the ink is not harmful to the human body, it contains organic solvents. Ink may contaminate the surrounding parts. Carry out the work with due caution. If your hands are stained with ink, wash them with a plenty of water. Be careful not to allow the ink to get into your mouth or eyes.
  • Page 56: Other Precautions

    Chapter 1 1.7.2 Other Precautions 1.7.2.1 Printhead 0013-1929 1. How to Handle the Printhead Do not open the printhead package until you are ready to install the head. When installing the printhead in the printer, hold the knob[1] and then remove the protective cap 1[2] and protective cap 2[3] in that order. Do not reattach the protective cap 2[3] to the printhead because the cap may damage the nozzles[4].
  • Page 57: Ink Tank

    Chapter 1 1.7.2.2 Ink Tank 0013-1886 1. Unpacking the Ink Tank Do not unpack the ink tank until you are ready to install it. When installing the ink tank, be sure to shake it slowly 7 to 8 times before unpacking it. Otherwise, the ink ingredients may precipitate and degrade the print quality.
  • Page 58 Chapter 1 F-1-31 [1] Carriage unit [2] Printhead contacts 2. Fixing the Carriage After completion of printing, the carriage is mechanically locked by the lock arm in the purge unit at the same moment the printhead is capped. Before transporting the printer, secure the carriage at its home position using belt stoppers[1] so that the carriage does not become separated from the lock arm and damage or ink does not leak.
  • Page 59 Chapter 1 3. Vent holes This printer has four vent holes, [1] to [4]. Do not block the vent holes when the printer is in service F-1-33 4. Contact of Linear Scale/Carriage Shaft Please do not touch a linear scale and the carriage shaft when the inside of the top cover is opened, and execute maintenance. When touching a linear scale and the carriage shaft, it might cause defective movement of the carriage and a defective print.

    Chapter 2 2.1.3 Print Driving 0012-6491 Print and control signals are transferred via the carriage PCB to the printheads to discharge inks from the nozzle assembly at printing. Each printhead has 12 trains of nozzles arranged in a zigzag pattern. This printer uses one printhead.
  • Page 70 Chapter 2 2. Print drive timing Each printhead houses 12 trains of nozzles, which share the same data transfer clock (Hx-CLK) and data latch pulses (Hx-LT). Even-numbered nozzle data (Hx-x-DATA-x-EV), odd-numbered nozzle data (Hx-x-DATA-x-OD) and the Heat Enable (Hx-x-HE-x) signal are generated for each nozzle train and controlled individually.

    Chapter 2 2.2 Firmware 2.2.1 Operation Sequence at Power-on 0012-6493 Shown below is the flowchart of the initialization sequence from the moment the power is turned on to the moment the printer enters the online state. The time required for initialization is less than 1 minute*. * This time does not include the time required for supplying ink and cleaning which takes place after the printer has been left unused for an extended period of time.
  • Page 72: Operation Sequence At Power-off

    Chapter 2 2.2.2 Operation Sequence at Power-off 0012-6494 Turning off the power cuts off the voltage to all drive systems. At this time, the firmware starts the power-off sequence as shown below. This printer immediately suspends all operations in progress and stops whenever the power cord is unplugged or a cover such as the top cover is opened. In this case, the printer may stop without capping the print head.
