Xaar 2001+ Head Personality Card

Key benefits

  • The Xaar 2001+ Head Personality Card is a proven solution which significantly reduces costs and risks faced by OEMs developing bespoke printing systems and reduces time-to-market.
  • The slimline Xaar 2001+ HPC is extremely mechanically robust and reliable, and has a similar footprint to the Xaar HPC3 (compatible with the Xaar 1003 family of printheads). The Molex connector ensures precise alignment with the Xaar printhead and the inherent locking mechanism prevents accidental disconnection.​
  • The Xaar 2001+ HPC is part of Xaar’s range of systems components, which includes the Xaar Print Manager (XPM), XUSB Drive Electronics and Xaar's Ink Supply Systems.

The Xaar 2001+ Head Personality Card (Xaar 2001+ HPC) provides optimal and dependable data communication between a Xaar 2001+ printhead and the remainder of the digital inkjet print management chain.

The Xaar 2001+ HPC is designed to:

  • Pass timing commands for print triggering to the Xaar 2001+ printhead

  • Convert the print data received over the Xaar Serial Printhead Interface (XSPI) High Speed Link to the format required for the Xaar 2001+ printhead. The High Speed Link maintains low latency and reduces jitter

 

  • Provide control signals and voltage supplies to the Xaar 2001+ printhead. This ensures the correct power sequencing

  • Provide feedback from the printhead and Xaar 2001+ HPC to the Xaar Printhead Manager (XPM). The XPSI cabling and interconnect are electrically compatible with the IEEE 1394 specification and are a cost effective solution.

    The Power Supply Control block maintains sixteen (16) independently controllable power supplies for the drive channels embedded within the printhead.

  • The narrow form factor (width) allows for flexibility in the design of the print bar. The Xaar 2001+ HPC can be located directly above the printhead and accessed via the printhead aperture which means that maintenance is easy.
  • A bi-coloured diagnostic LED provides an immediate indication of system, print and power status.
  • The on-board temperature sensor can be used to ensure that the Xaar 2001+ HPC is maintained within the recommended operating parameters.
  • The Xaar 2001+ HPC supports all variants of the Xaar 2001+ printhead
  • The Xaar 2001+ HPC connects directly to the Xaar Printhead Manager (XPM) via the Xaar Serial Printhead Interface (XSPI). An external 39V power supply is required to power the Xaar 2001+ HPC. The power supply available from Xaar can power up to four Xaar 2001+ HPCs.
