Meteor to support Epson i3200

Meteor Inkjet, which develops drive electronics and associated tools for printheads, has expanded its support for Epson’s printheads with a new set of tools for working with Epson’s PrecisionCore I3200. 

Epson’s I3200 printhead uses four PrecisionCore chips for up to four colour channels.

The I3200 is a compact squarish printhead that’s relatively inexpensive and can be used for either scanning or single pass printers. It has four PrecisionCore chips, giving it eight nozzle rows in total, and can be configured for one, two or four colours, all at 600dpi. It will work with a wide range of fluids, including UV inks as well as aqueous and solvent. 

Meteor Inkjet’s new PDS-3EI3200Z print driver stack supports up to three of Epson’s I3200 printheads.

Meteor already provides drive electronics for Epson’s S3200, S1600 and S800 industrial printheads so it was only a matter of time before it turned its attention to the I-series heads. Thus Meteor has developed the PDS-3EI3200Z Print Driver Stack, which can support up to three I3200 heads. It’s a compact unit so that more boards and heads can be added together where needed. Naturally it’s backed up by Meteor’s existing software tools. 

Paddy O’Hara, business development manager for Epson Europe, commented: “At Epson we work with market leading partners to provide the printhead driver solutions that our OEM customers demand. With the introduction of Meteor’s system for driving the I3200 series of printheads, our customers will have access to extremely versatile hardware and software, allowing them to develop printers for a wide range of applications.”
