Portable Ink-Jet Technology – Lightweight, Compact, Wireless Coding
The innovative HandJet EBS-250 combines the proven success of our EBS-230 production line ink-jet system and adds a unique, wireless interface developed through intensive research. It signals a new era in portable, hand-held ink-jet coding, replacing antiquated hand coders such as stencil machines, stamps and roll coders, which are labor intense, expensive to use and problematic with ink management.
Weighing in at just under two pounds – including its on-board rechargeable battery and ink cartridge – the HandJet EBS-250 is the ultimate in lightweight, compact, portable coding.
With its patented print technology, the unit improves and economizes ink management to make traditional manual coding methods like stencil marking, hand stamps and roll coders virtually obsolete.
By using solvent-based inks in an array of colors, the HandJet EBS-250 provides fast, clean printing on a variety of corrugated materials, in addition to metal, glass and plastic substrates. The unit’s high-volume ink-jet cartridge efficiently provides up to 100,000 characters with a dot matrix of 7×5.
The HandJet EBS-250 uses a simple Microsoft™ Windows®-based program to format and transmit messages that are easily created on a personal computer. Messages can consist of alphanumerics and logos from Windows® fonts and symbols, as well as diacritical characters.
The hand-held system maximizes battery life (up to 50 continuous hours) and its rechargeable Li-ion battery recharges in just two and a half hours.
