EVOLUTION High Resolution Ink Jet Printers have become the industry standard and are used on countless production lines for product identification. This "standard" is now available in a portable, handheld model and can be used in place of manually applied labels or hand stencilling operations.
A Complete Hand-Held System
EVOLUTION Hand-Held is complete and ready to use right out of the box. The system includes a hand held controller with tactile keypad for message entry and a printhead module with internal product sensor that is attached to along lasting rechargeable battery pack and cushioned vertical grip. The printhead module is adjustable and can print at a variety of angles.
Inkjet Technology by Hewlett Packard
The EVOLUTION I is powered with ink jet technology by Hewlett Packard. This combination gives you the benefits of an affordable, compact and efficient design coupled with the reliability of printhead technology by Hewlett Packard.
Rechargeable Battery Pack
A 12 volt battery pack powers the EVOLUTION hand-held inkjet printers and will supply enough energy to operate the system for up to 12 hours. Recharging the battery pack is accomplished with either a 12VDC automobile charger or a 120/240VAC wall outlet charger. Both charger types are supplied.
The printhead module is adjustable. This adjustability allows the battery pack to be rotated out of the way for printing close to the bottom of a carton on a fully loaded pallet.
Built into the printhead is a 42 cc ink reservoir. Once the ink in the cartridge is depleted, it can be taken out, disposed of and a new ink cartridge inserted in just minutes.
Your Choice of Systems
The EVOLUTION Hand-Held can be supplied with either the EVOLUTION I or II printing systems. The choice is yours depending on your printing requirements.
The EVOLUTION I can print a one line message in 1/2" characters or two lines of text with the 7/32" high characters. Selecting the character size is accomplished through the font key on the hand held controller. Optional style fonts and character sizes are available.
