Mark 610

Mark610 Print Controller with Outboard Module

The Mark610 is a high-speed, high resolution inkjet print controller system used to print date and time, barcodes, serial numbers, fixed and variable text or graphics.  Ideal for many addressing, marking & coding, or labeling applications, the Mark610 features the clean, low maintenance convenience and dependability of Hewlett-Packard’s disposable print cartridges.  Targeting the needs and value add capabilities of the VAR and OEM markets,  the Mark610 is available in a variety of user-defined configurations offering the versatility of an embeddable print controller or fully functional stand alone marker.

The Mark610 supports 1 or 2 printheads providing 16 onboard print buffers and 4 counters per printhead, allowing maximum flexibility and fast printing.  User defined I/O options enable  triggering of specialized messages via upstream PLCs.  User defined outputs provide the ability to trigger system actions; for example turning on UV lamps, starting conveyors, or enabling verification processes.  A second printhead provides printing in a separate location with unique messaging or enables stitching with the 2 Printhead Outboard Module.

Communication Flexibility at no additional cost:

The Mark610 comes equipped with Marking and Coding software allowing the user to create, print, save and edit messages, configure the system, and adjust cartridge controls.  The software contains macros for serialization, counting, date calculations, time offsets and timestamps etc.  After configuration, the computer may be detached from the controller for true standalone operation.

Every feature of the software may be accessed and utilized by user applications via integration through the provided simplified protocol.
