Xaar Hydra Ink Supply System

Key benefits

The Hydra Ink Supply System is part of Xaar’s range of systems components which accelerate OEM time-to-market by easing development, saving time and cost whilst ensuring optimal performance of Xaar printheads.

The compact Hydra can be combined with the Hydra Power Supply Unit (PSU), and the Hydra Sensor Manifold, to control nozzle pressure, ink flow rate and temperature. This complete solution can support up to four Xaar 1003 printheads. An additional option available for the Hydra PSU is a UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply) and allows a controlled shut down in the event of power failure preventing ink drying in the printer.

The Xaar Hydra Ink Supply System is part of Xaar’s range of systems components, which includes the Xaar Print Manager (XPM), Xaar XUSB Drive Electronics, Xaar Head Personality Cards and Xaar Midas Ink Supply System.
