Global Inkjet Systems (GIS) has announced a new low power regenerative Head Interface Board (HIB) for the Fujifilm Dimatix SG1024 StarFire printheads. The new GIS HIB-FD-A4D supports the StarFire SG1024/S/M/L printheads and requires a standard 24V power supply. Users of FujiFilm Dimatix printheads typically require expensive high voltage external power supplies to generate the high voltage fire pulses required. In contrast, this technology generates the high voltage fire pulses and recovers energy from the printhead after each pulse, using only a 24V power supply. Each HIB can drive up to two StarFire printheads printing grey-scale (Versadrop), multidrop and binary modes at full-speed. System builders are able to define independent waveforms for each printhead, specifying the number of pulses and the slew rates, amplitude and timings for each pulse. This new regenerative design replaces GIS’ previous technology for driving StarFire SG1024 printheads.
