X4JET

This is a simplified version of the X4JET Plus controller. To be more economic, it has a reduced interface, where the big colored 5,7" touchscreen is replaced by a nice high-resolution OLED display with icons. For this reason, it is no longer possible to create texts directly on the controller, so a PC is required to create them. Despite that, all the other impressive features of the X4JET Plus controller remain. Perfect for those who need to have four printheads, yet do not wish to spend a lot in a controller. The X4JET is compact and easy to operate. Supports the SmartCart technology, i.e., the controller automatically detects the ink type and ink level inside the cartridges (only with HP® or Funai® printheads).

Main Features

X4JET

The X4JET is a controller that can control up to 4 printheads, no matter the printing technology chosen. You can use just a SINGLE printhead, a TWIN printhead for double print height, a TRIPLE of even a quadruple printhead (QUADRO). Separating the printheads, you can print in two sides of the same product (2xSINGLE or 2xTWIN) or even use each printhead in two different production lines (2xCHANNEL), using two product sensors and, if necessary, two shaft encoders. In this last scenario, the systems allows you to choose a different text for each printhead and set parameters like print direction, resolution, speed, border distance, zoom, number of repetitions (same text printed several times in the same product) and even activate the upside down print, all set independently for each one of the production lines. The touchscreen allows you to configure all that in a very simple and self-explanatory way. The X4JET have the following features:

  • Printing technology: The same controller supports HP®, Funai®, Trident® and Xaar® printheads
  • Number of printheads: 4
  • Can control up to 2 independent production lines
  • Print height: 50mm (4xHP® or 4xFunai®), 284mm (4xXaar®) or 400mm (4xTrident®)
  • Max print speed: up to 400m/min (depending on the version and printing resolution)
  • OLED display with icons
  • Status LEDs
  • Ports: USB (pen), USB B (for PC connection), Ethernet, RS232 (option), 2xEncoder, 4xExternal Photocell, 4xAlarm Lamp, I/Os.
  • Works with any font
  • Multiple languages (English, German, French, Spanish, Japanese, Swedish and Finnish)
