EBS-230 Large-Character Inkjet Printer

Home > Inkjet Printers >Large Character > EBS-230

EBS-230 printers provide a low-cost solution for printing text and simple graphics onto porous and non-porous surfaces. For applications where a small number of different messages are repuired, up to 30 messages can be stored on the printer and called up using the keypad and LED display on the back of the printer. Where more control is needed, the optional touch-screen terminal can be used.

Self-contained design

The EBS-230 design combines an industrial dot-matrix printhead with a simple controller allowing messages to be stored on the printer and selected using the built-in keypad and display. For applications where more control is required e.g, if batch numbers need to be entered, the optional T200 touch-screen terminal can be used. A choice of 7-dot (11mm) and 16-dot (27mm) models is available.

EBS-230/16 16-dot / 27mm printhead - print in any direction


Industrial build

The EBS-230 uses solenoid-driven print mechanics allowing fast-drying inks to be used and preventing dust and debris from clogging up print nozzles as well as having no valves to wear out. Despite their low cost, all elements of EBS-230 systems are constructed from heavy-duty stainless steel and high-quality components.

Wide range of inks

A choice of water, ethanol, acetone and MEK-based inks is available to allow printing on virtually any surface - porous or non-porous. Acetone and MEK based inks offer a fast dry time on non-porous surfaces such as plastic, metal and glass.
