Strongly recommend that all direct to garment printers should be plugged into a high end UPS which regulates the voltage going to the printer and also offers surge protection. It does provide an extra measure of protection to the printer. Better then just plugging the printer into a surge protector only.

Here's one recommended:

First time I heard. Epson was built for against these minor issue. False alarm, IMHO. Maybe may be @ 3rd world Africa or Bangladesh etc.

We do use UPS's. You must use surge protectors with any direct to garment printer. A UPS, with both a regulated power supply and surge protector, helps provide even more protection.

The price of a good UPS, especially on sale from someplace like Amazon, is fairly inexpensive. You spend a lot on a printer. Doesn't it make sense to keep it as safe as possible.

10years: Among thousands not one fried yet with Cheap extension code with breaker.
Epson has fuse to protect surges. Mordern world? Chance is slim to none but hey if you can sleep better? Then do it. Cheaper than Medicine. We are not dealing with Hospital equipments or NASA lab.
Did anyone hear/read something I did not know yet? Let me know Pls.
Cheers! RIPs are on me always.

Default Re: Circuit Error D197

Common advise from most equipment makers with electronic components inside, including Epson, is to only plug the equipment into, at least, a high end surge protector. A cheap surge protector, like on a $10 strip, is fairly useless when it comes to protecting circuits. Having a fuse is not the same protection as having a surge protector. A simple google search will give you all the details.

Harry with all respects, if it is necessary/must Does Epson will recommand or not? Do we can find on Epson manual? If anyone give me unnecessary fears, I won't like it. Can you locate one post about boards fried by surge in TSF? If so I missed it. Most fried happens mishandle(work on printer without pull plug, drop ink on board etc) or over load(not maintained) not by surge. Let me know when and If you find one post in TSF.
Cheers! RIPs are on me always.

With all due respect we will continue to recommend to our customers to have some inexpensive extra electrical protection by using a UPS with surge protector. The feeling is that with a $17,000 purchase an additional $100 to $200 is a small price for extra peace of mind.

And you are, of course, free to tell your customers not to. All is good now. Everyone can be happy

100-200 still is big money to me. Maybe not to you. By the way I didnt see $100 one . How much did you pay? $170.
Another word Pay $200 for peace of mind?
I will never say not to use. I will say not necessary. If necessary EPSON will be the first one who will recommend before you.
Cheers! Beers are on me always.

i agree, i would purchase that for sure to be safe. 19k i paid for this printer and i build all my own cpus and also have expensive drawing tablets etc etc. for 160 bucks its worth it comparing you spent 19k on a dtg printer. i have always had back ups and surge protectors on all my equipment but never had one that regulated voltage amps etc.

that is strange you experience same problem with not only 1 but 2 epsons. hope they fix it soon for you! that would totally cripple my business and someone at epson would be getting an ear full everysingle day from me until its fixed or replaced. totally unacceptable!

Imagine many owners would want that extra protection insurance for their income generator (their printer)

Interesting read:
Power, Surge Protection, PCs, and You

When rain Water falls on everyone's head. Not just to selected. It is not Epson default. It is not surge 99.9%. There are 10s of thousands maybe more people use DTG. 99% of us are not using $170 Surge protector. Fear works always. Some how most of us think we are bad luck because we never win lotto. Well all individule's call. AA never used.
We never Fried any. None while Thousands Of customers I have.
It wil not harm but pocket.
Cheers! Beers are on me always.

We all buy business insurance not because we expect the place to burn down but because there is always the very small chance it might. Just good business practice to do what you can reasonably to protect your expensive investments.

Everyones choice to do what they want of course.

They did get an ear full from me, indeed they did. They took some time but both have been replaced. It just hurts that I was down during holiday season so much was lost due to this.



I will also look into more information about the $170 piece. Thank you for the advice
