Worldwide innovation: for the first time in a Continuous Ink Jet Printer: a built-in automatic, intelligent system for reliable printer operation in case of power failure. Should the power be interrupted for less than 30 seconds, the printer continues operating. If the supply is cut off for more than 30 seconds, the printer starts the automatic shutdown procedure including rinsing, to protect the tubes from dried ink deposits. As soon as the power is restored the printer is quickly operational. The UPS power supply contains very long-lasting Super Charger Mill spec Capacitors, not conventional batteries. Charging lasts only around 2 minutes. The USP power supply is standard in all Signea printers.
