Mark 605

The Mark605 is a low cost, high speed, high resolution embeddable inkjet print controller featuring the clean, low maintenance convenience and dependability of Hewlett-Packard disposable print cartridges.

Designed for seamless integration into custom applications, multiple Mark605 controllers may be stacked together to create user definable print heights.  Preconfigured Outboard Modules (cartridge holders) add to ease of installation in industrial environments

The Mark605 is available in 2 versions:
– Mark605F with flex connectors.
– Mark605D with D-Sub connectors for high vibration  environments.  Available with horizontal or vertical connector configurations.  Fits in standard DIN Rail.

For the most demanding graphic applications, the Mark605 can deliver up to 600 x 600 dpi and each Mark605 controller supports 2 printheads.

The simple control protocol provides access to macros for serialization, counting, date calculations, time offsets and timestamps etc.

The Mark605 is equipped with user definable input/output lines allowing control from upstream PLCs, and signaling to external peripherals, minimizing the total installation footprint.

For many applications, a PC is not required after configuration.  Connect, configure, unplug the PC and use in standalone operation.  Onboard memory supports the print configuration.

User defined cartridge settings allow the Mark605 to be compatible with all standard branded HP and specialized solvent inks.
