    Part 4: Technical Reference BJC-2000 5. SENSOR FUNCTIONS The printer has a pick-up roller sensor, paper end sensor, home position sensor (purge sensor), printer temperature sensor, and head temperature sensor. Furthermore, the EEPROM counts and records the waste ink absorption amount. When the waste ink absorber becomes full, the waste ink absorption amount indicates an error.

    Part 4: Technical Reference BJC-2000 5.5 Head Temperature Sensor The head temperature sensor in the print head is a diode sensor which detects the head's internal temperature. Temperature changes in the head are detected by the MPU as voltage-level changes. The analog value input to the MPU is converted into a digital value by the A-D converter.
