Diagraph, An ITW Company: Thermal jet print head
Powered by HP® Technology, Diagraph’s TJ500 Thermal Jet Printhead is a reliable, low cost ink jet system for 1- and 2-line marking and coding.
The TJ500 prints characters 1/4- or 1/2-in. tall (alphanumerics and UPC-A bar codes), with 300 dpi vertical and horizontal resolution, and speeds up to 200 feet /minute. Printhead is constructed of a sealed, industrial-grade housing with stainless steel faceplate and built-in photo sensors to detect product speed and direction. The TJ500 also comes with Smart Level Ink Detection System that indicates “ink low” and “ink out ” status of Diagraph ink cartridges. A simple snap-in and snap-out feature makes ink replacement easy. The TJ500 can be driven by the I J3000 ES Controller--a handheld interface--or a PC.
