The driver cards have been designed by the printhead driver specialist to support SG600 printheads

Meteor Inkjet is the first supplier to offer electronics and software to support the launch of these new printheads. The firm expands its portfolio with the addition of the HDC-SG600 Head Driver Card (HDC), Printhead Evaluation kit and Waveform Development kit, specifically for the printheads from Fujifilm Dimatix.

“We have a long history of collaboration with Fujifilm Dimatix, having launched our first Meteor-branded drive electronics for Dimatix printheads in 2006,” says Clive Ayling, managing director at Meteor. “We are proud to be the first supplier to offer production-ready electronics, software and evaluation equipment for the new SG600 printhead and we look forward to providing customers an easy to integrate, scalable solution with the assurance of long-term, reliable supply for both development and production requirements.”

... the firm’s software supports a range of applications whilst allowing print system builders flexibility with designing front end systems

The SG600 is in the same range as the SG1024 but takes the native resolution to 600dpi, allowing printer OEMs to offer a higher ink deposition or finer detailed imaging at desired print speeds. The Meteor HDC-SG600 drives one SG600 printhead, supported through a Meteor PCC-E GbitE Print Controller Card (PCC) which in turn can accommodate up to eight HDCs. Multiple PCCs can be linked to drive up to 2024 printheads and when used in conjunction with the electronics, the firm’s software supports a range of applications whilst allowing print system builders flexibility with designing front end systems. 

The Printhead Evaluation kit and Waveform Development kit have been designed to simplify the design of print systems and speed up the process.
