As for the data output from the host PC.2-1.0) with 360 dpi resolution. at the same time. and many other IO devices are connected to the JV3. M. To avoid this. the V2 (Variable2) mode which enables four gradations with smaller dots with 720 dpi resolution. it becomes difficult to handle wires and replace the PCB. Explanation of electrical components 2-1-1. the number of signals has been reduced through serial signal transmission with the main PCB using IO PCBs. (If the head ID is not registered correctly. Since the PRAM has the ring memory configuration.2 – Scanning direction .) Since the driving frequency (or the scanning speed of the head) depends on each waveform. Operations * The slider of the JV3-160SP is provided with four heads with inline arrangement. note that the Normal waveform modes are not used when normal data is received from the host PC. * The main PCB is provided with two FPGAs (HDCs) which generate the driving signal (COM waveform) to be applied to the piezo-electric element of one nozzle row for two heads. This signal processing is performed by the FPGA (PDC) mounted on the main PCB. and S) with 360 dpi resolution. * The ink in the ink chamber is discharged by vibrating the piezo-electric element of the head. Therefore. However. * Stepping motors. and the N2 (Normal2) mode which enables high-speed two gradations with 720 dpi resolution. (Some Variable waveforms are represented in two gradations. Y-directional position adjustment can be made in units of one dot or less by adjusting the timing of the COM waveform for each nozzle row. Y-directional position adjustment is required for each waveform. the nozzle data is transferred to the head. Since the ink discharge performance depends on each head. The COM waveform is applied in synchronization with the scale interval of each linear scale and. the image with the target resolution is completed while making required amount of paper feed. Since only an image with 180 dpi resolution can be formed into the X direction in each scanning. with 180 nozzles (at 180dpi intervals) x 2 rows (2 colors) for each head. no ink may be discharged. the N1 (Normal1) mode which enables high-speed two gradations (1.) * The main PCB is provided with the FPGA (PDC) in charge of image processing to which the 128MB DSRAM picture memory (PRAM) is connected. the command is analyzed by the CPU and the image is transferred to the memory through high-speed DMA.

Head capping Head capping is a mechanism for automatically capping the nozzle so as to prevent it from drying. Ink system 2-2-1. Definitions Ink system Ink system is the general term of a mechanism specific to ink-jet printing system for protecting a nozzle against troubles such as clogging and recovering it if it should be in trouble. the nozzle called the “clogged nozzle. Wiping Wipes the nozzle surface with wiper rubber surface to fix the condition of nozzle holes in order to remove foreign objects or ink leakage on the nozzle surface.2-2. Head cleaning Recovers normal ink discharge by removing bubbles in the head and foreign objects on the head surface. Flashing Make idling discharges of ink which may thicken at the point of the nozzle. As long as the head is on the station in the right-hand side cover. for refreshment. the ink shot may shift. Ink suction Absorbs ink from nozzle by means of the ink suction pump. the sequence of power-on R nozzle refresh R power-off is automatically repeated at fixed intervals to prevent nozzle plugging. – 2.

the refreshing operation occurs at the left end depending on the plotting conditions and other settings. at fixed intervals.Processing when power is turned ON If it is anticipated that the ink will have thickened while the power was OFF. • Ink end: Plotting is not possible (plotting is suspended. – 2. by an amount corresponding to the measured standby time. • Ink remains: Plotting is possible. After about 7 years this battery discharges to a voltage at which the timer can no longer operate.14 – . Standby state To prevent the nozzle from drying. the maximum measurable time during which the power is OFF is 7 years. then cleaning action is executed to restore the ink ejection condition to what it was originally. and ink is ejected from all nozzles to maintain stable ink ejection. While the power is OFF. On machines with the refresh station attached to the left end of the platen. To prevent nozzles that are at rest from drying and ink from thickening. • No ink cartridge: Plotting is not possible. either ink is ejected from all nozzles or all of the nozzles are cleaned. and if there is expected to be danger that the uncapped nozzle will be dry when the power is turned ON. the timer incorporated into the main unit is backed up by a battery. • Ink near end: Plotting is possible (ink cartridge replacement is recommended). When plotting starts. since the ink gradually thickens it is necessary to measure the time during which the unit is on standby with the nozzle capped. and detects the following. Processing when plotting starts Even if the nozzle has been capped. only some of the nozzles discharge ink. the head is moved onto the cap inside of the station. Accordingly. to avoid defective ink ejection on account of increased ink viscosity. Refreshing operation During plotting. and the system waits for ink cartridge replacement). Ink end monitoring At fixed intervals a sensor monitors the ink level. The “refresh interval” and the number of times that ink is ejected can be varied by varying the “refresh level” on a menu that is open to the user. the head is automatically carried back to the station unless the next scanning starts after three seconds have passed after the completion of the last scanning.

For this reason. initial filling of ink is carried out so that ink will pass from the ink cartridge through the tube to the head.15 – .Head cleaning operation A function that works to remove thickened ink or dust accumulated on the nozzle faces to recover normal ink-discharge. Miscellaneous a) The cap inside the station must be kept at the proper humidity to prevent the nozzle from drying out. b) This unit has a paper width sensor mechanism and a cutter mechanism in the head. In particular. Action is taken to deal with major trouble that cannot be taken care of by normal cleaning. Ink cartridge replacement When an error occurs because ink has run out or an ink cartridge has not been installed. ink is ejected from inside the cap to the waste ink tank with the pump mechanism to keep the humidity at its optimum level. whenever the head is put into or taken out of the station. the user should replace the ink cartridge. if so much ink has been ejected that the nozzle is too moist. The actions described in a) are necessary in this case also. the paper width detection action and the paper cutting action make it necessary for the head to move in and out of the station. ink is ejected to keep the nozzle moist. – 2. Action is taken to clear a clogged nozzle. or if there is none. Conversely.
