Print Providers Can Test Their Printheads

(August 2005) posted on Thu Aug 04, 2005

Users will know if printhead is still electrically good


ISI (Innovative Solutions Inc.) has released
its new ISIJet Printhead Tester
(PHT), which tests the electrical functionality
of printers utilizing Xaar XJ128/200,
28/200, or 128/360 printheads.
To utilize the PHT, shops disconnect
connecting cable from the head while it is
still on the machine; plug the ISIJet PHT into
the head; and press the button. In 30 sec,
says ISI, users will know if the head is still
electrically good. If it tests bad (red light),
replace it; if it tests good (green light),
users can move on to troubleshooting other
aspects of the printer.

In addition, ISI has announced a new
distribution channel for its ISIJet line of
printers as well as the Printhead Tester.
The Alabama-based company has established
12 resellers in the US and internationally.
Prior to this, the company sold
direct as well as through OEM partner
MacDermid ColorSpan, and had a reseller
situated in Mexico.

"Our newly established distribution
partners have the unique knowledge
required to successfully sell and support
the ISIJet Printers into their respective
geographic regions and markets," says
Jim Lambert, Innovative Solution's vice
president of marketing.

ISI will continue to provide service and
support to end users of its equipment.
Some of its resellers in Mexico and Europe
also offer service and support for the
printers, with ISI support/service as
backup. (Innovative Solutions, Inc: www.goisi.com)
