St. Louis, MO. . .Diagraph introduces the latest generation of controllers in its IJ3000™ line of large character ink jet printers—the IJ3000 XLS Controller.

The XLS controller drives Diagraph’s high-resolution impulse jet printheads, making it the ideal choice for printing reliable, verifiable bar codes and high quality logos and graphics in sizes from 1/4” to 4” tall on corrugated cartons. Plus, the IJ3000 XLS Controller is backwards compatible with existing Diagraph IJ3000 Impulse Jet installations.
Features of the IJ3000 Impulse Jet System:
The automatic cleaning printhead feature allows the operator to program the Impulse Jet printer to self-clean at any desired times on any selected days. At the programmed times, a pump and vacuum device is automatically activated to remove accumulated contaminants from the printhead and transport them to a reservoir that can be emptied and disposed of as needed.
The touch screen allows operators to control the system with the touch of a finger and enjoy previously unimagined levels of convenience and productivity. The graphical user interface visually displays menus and commands so operators can enter messages and codes in minutes. And batch codes can be changed during a run, without interrupting production.
The IJ3000 Impulse Jet has a built-in high-speed Ethernet connection that permits networking with another printer on the other side of the factory, or on the other side of the world. For multi-location manufacturing customers with constantly changing batch codes, this smart feature is invaluable for making changes and checking status. The system is designed to work with Web browsers (including Netscape and Internet Explorer), existing local area networks (device net, arc net, etc.), or wireless (radio frequency) using off-the-shelf converters.
Another smart feature is 24/7 monitoring and diagnostics. Operating on PCs, PLCs, and LANs, it can be used to obtain up-to-the-minute system status. The IJ3000 Impulse Jet can even be programmed to monitor ink levels and provide an alert when the supply needs to be replenished.
Like all Diagraph ink jet printing systems, the IJ3000 Impulse Jet is built to last, with minimal maintenance, even in hostile industrial environments. It provides reliable performance in all kinds of conditions—hot, cold, wet and dry.
