(putting it in its original location on the printer as it was stock)

Hi Jeff, regarding the photo sensor that you use to replace the pe switch, may I know the brand, specification and where to buy it.

Thanks

been asked this alot, im not an electronics guru.. it was bought and supplied by a friend of mine (elect engineer).. when i find out i will post it..

the important part is matching the voltage 3.3 vdc +-5% (use photo interupter).. if your good with electronics you can prolly use a pw sensor from the print head and convert it for this purpose (if you have a spare printer/ parts,its the same voltage along with the ink mark sensor..

I can also tell you i have had issue with ink mist build up using a photo sensor making it malfunction.. by far the most reliable way is using the mechanical pe switch.. I myself will prolly switch back to the mechanical pe to avoid issue, IT MAKES THE DTG VIRTUALLY BULLET PROOF/ WITH EXCEPTION TO WHITE INK PRINTING.... convert to a bagged ink and it is bullet proof;)

I read all post in this title.

The machine became more advance than the most of commercial system availabled in the market.:) Also, we will understand all detail. We can modify by our needs without any expensive supports.;)

As German said, I have no doubt t-dozer 3 with bagged ink system will be bullet proof! :rolleyes:

Hi! Zanone:

I am very interested of your bagged ink system.

Can you tell me which components you are using and where to buy them?

how to fill the bag without air introduced.

how to install them to your printer.

Thank you for giving me such great idea.

I bought a soap refill bag and washed my hands 1000 times to get this dirty job done :) Next time i am going to use empty use infusion bags so i can skip the handwashing part and furthermore they come with a perfect connector.
The bag is connected to an air distributor with 3 outlets , which i got in a pet shop. Each outlet is connected to a cartridge , the connector piece is made out of the tip of a syringe (i am using an epson2100 based printer with 3 white channels)
Simply fill the bag with ink using a cone. Keep the bag in a vertical postion, with the outlet beeing on the upper side, and allow all the air to accumulate itself just infront of the outlet.
Now you could need a third hand or a second person.
Gently press the bag to the squeeze all the air out of the bag , and start to prime your carts.
You most likely wont be able to remove the whole amount of the visible air , but thats no problem, because the bag still has some advantages over any open system.
It wont allow the ink to evaporte since it is in a closed enviroment, the bag will keep any contaminant away from your ink.

I am through the second bag , and and it still works very well,
sometimes i dont even do a headclean in the morning , but just start to print right away. I dont know whether it is the bag the resolute ink or the bagged resolute, but it simply works :)

Update 2 :

Been out of town for 6 days, and guess what , all nozzles still there on my white channel(s).

Bagged anyway better than none. Evaporation is an issue for light users. If your bag has an airtight quick disconnect you can also swipe the wifes food sealer if it has a container adapter and suck the air out.

:(Hi, before 3 days I almost finish assembly to convert my R1900 and start tests it using the original EPSON Stylus Photo R1900 printer driver-
I tryed to print test page, nozzle check,etc... (I hold/trigger the PE sensor by hand), but I got the Paper light flashing alarm :(. I wonder all distances in my project are correct :confused:? (look at my photos..)
Help me please... Randy (spiderx1), Jeff (german13) where is my mistake?
Sorry for my English
