EBS-6200/EBS-6200P Capabilities Back to top
  • The printer can produce durable and legible prints on a variety of surfaces, including smooth, porous and also uneven materials of irregular shapes, such as cables, tubes, insulation sleeves, furs or extruded packing,
  • Non-contact print technology is applied to avoid problems when printing on curved surfaces (there is a significant distance of up to 30 mm between the print-head and object),
  • The process of printing is fully automated by the application of a photo-detector for detecting objects to be labelled and of an optional sensor for detecting travel rate of factory conveyors if the conveyors run at varying speeds,
    The printer offers excellent capabilities to print (at a given value of MPH):
  • texts on up to 4 lines, with the use of a variety of matrices, in capital and small, boldfaced and rotated letters, including the use of diacritical national characters,
  • graphics with a set of graphics character either built-in or created by a user with the application of a built-in graphics processor,
  • bar codes of various types, in positive or negative, with or without a numerical label,
  • The time and date are available and can be used to automatically update service life/period of storage, with an option for coding date and time elements, number objects (via incremental, decremental and special counters) and produce dynamically changing bar codes (via incremental or decremental counters),
  • Data can be transferred from a PC or external devices, such as automatic scales, data from a bar code reader or data from a database,
  • The printer’s operation is fully automated and supported by a monitoring system and gives a warning if operator intervention is required,
  • It can work with any IBM-compatible PC via the application-specific printer control program EdGraf to be run under MS Windows®, via an RS-232 or RS-485 interface,
  • There is an option for interconnecting a number of EBS printers of various types into a network and controlling them from one computer via InkNet, network software running under MS Windows®, and an RS-485 interface.

EBS-6200/EBS-6200P Functions Back to top
  • Automatic start up and ready-to-use signalling.
  • Automatic switch off along with the rinsing of the ink system.
  • Automatic jet drop adjustment.
  • Automatic control of ink return flow.
  • Automatic adjustment of viscosity.
  • Automatic adjustment of deflecting voltage vs. ink viscosity (print height adjustment).
  • Automatic diagnostics and signalling irregularities and need for operator intervention (for example, detecting empty ink or solvent bottles).
  • Automatic control of the operation of external devices (for example, halting the conveyor, if service or operator intervention is needed).
  • All external (electrical or pneumatic) connections are located on one side of the printer housing, and thus the printer can be placed in the corner of a room conveniently.
  • Printer design and software offer spare capacity to add a greater number of fonts and special texts, thus enhancing the printer's functionality in meeting users' individual and specific needs.
