I have a more convenient way of cleaning heads. After printing, remove the white cartridge and insert the cartridge with cleaning fluid 2 to 3 times I clean the head and the head is clean. Perfectly simple.
What you think use the relay board. You mine epson relay board.The diagram provided is a general diagram and would not be exact for printer connection. The printer encoder provide pulses at 3.3v and can be tapped off the relay board or directly off the encoder board. Most use the relay board. These boards can be damaged very easily you must take precaution while working with them. If you're not savvy with electronics find someone to help you out.
The arduino board input and output posts are on opposite sides of the board do not be confused by the numbering on the diagram.
Hmm is really white ink cost 200€. Here in Slovenia us having such a price. In China, I bought it for 90€.
Hello Friend: please test this provider, in korea ITINKHmm is really white ink cost 200€. Here in Slovenia us having such a price. In China, I bought it for 90€.
What about in Italy or Austria anyone buy there dtg ink.
Did you write the code from scratch? If so it means you know C programming. You can modify the code to run a dc motor using an L298 driver and save the money on the servo motor. I'm thinking that dc motors are used in these printers because of cost and smooth operation. A high torque brushless 18 volt motor like what is used in power tools would be more than adequate.Thank you, stepper motor is pretty loud. Next year I'll make the drive table with servo motor.
If use arduino mini must write delay.hI googled your code and see you spend a few months fighting with it. I used to code C many year a go. I don't even keep compilers and such any more.
I compiled your code online and got "fatal error: delay.h: No such file or directory" . Just decided to play a bit with it to knock some of the dust and cobweb off the old brain.
Are you contemplating adding more features like hard limit stop etc.
Better to work with Stepper motor driverHey Miki good to see you finally managed to solve the white ink problem.
Just a few question if you have time to answer.
I would like to try and build the bottom plate just like you by using a stepper motor, so I'm asking for the needed parts:
1 piece - arduino (uno, mini etc)
1 piece - easyDriver ic A3967
1 piece - stepper motor 4A
1 piece - external DC power source 24V
Did I miss anything ?
Also the code you provided does it need any tweeks or if works perfectly for the R1900?
The amperage is more important than the voltage. Besides it all depends on the amount of torque needed to move your platen or printer. I would use what I have then try something else if it fails.Better to work with Stepper motor driver
