The Controller of a printer or printing system for producing large prints. Typically, 1 or 2 print-heads of electromagnetic and/or piezoceramic types can be controlled. The Controller with at least one print-head attached makes a fully functional printer. It demonstrate versatility and flexibility in configuring a printing system and high functionality of the printing.

Out of very many Controller capabilities, only the most important ones are specified below (some of them depend on the type of print-head used):
The Controller controls the process of making durable firm and legible prints on a variety of types of surface, smooth, porous and also uneven surfaces of irregular shapes, such as pipes, bags, insulation sleeves, fabrics, extruded packing,
Electromagnetic and piezoceramic print-heads can be connected to such a controller, both types can work with the same controller simultaneously, each print-head can print various text files independently from one another, provided that prints are released and timed for all print-heads at the same time,
Non-contact print technology eliminates problems when printing on curved surfaces,
The process of printing is fully automated by the application, for all print-heads, of one photo-detector for detecting objects to be labelled and of one optional sensor for detecting travel rate of factory conveyors if the conveyors run at varying speeds,
It offers excellent capabilities to print (according to the type of print-head used):
texts on up to 8 lines (with a 64-dot print-head) with the use of a variety of matrices, in capital and small, boldfaced and rotated letters, including the use of diacritical national characters,
graphics with a set of graphics characters either built-in or created by a user with the application of a built-in graphics processor,
bar codes of various types, in positive or negative, with or without a numerical label and the two-dimensional (2D) code Data Matrix ECC-200,
The time and date are available and can be used to automatically update service life/period of storage, with an option for coding date and time elements, number objects (via incremental, decremental and special counters) and produce dynamically changing bar codes (via incremental or decremental counters),
Data can be transferred from a PC or external devices, such as automatic scales, data from a bar code reader or data from a database, and also distributed to individual print-heads,
The printer operation is fully automated and supported by a monitoring system and gives a warning if operator intervention is required,
It can work with any IBM-compatible PC via the application-specific printer control program EdGraf to be run under MS Windows® via an RS-232 or RS-485 interface,
There is an option for interconnecting a number of EBS printers of various types into a network and controlling them from one computer via InkNet, network software running under MS Windows®, and an RS-485 interface,
All connections are on one side of the housing, which facilitates the installation of the printer in places where access is restricted,
Its splashproof housing of INOX stainless steel and diaphragm keypad ensure its resistance to water and all solvents that might be used in the real working environment.

Number of print-heads to be connected simultaneously 1 or 2 *)
The print-heads depend on each other, i.e. the printing by both print-heads is released by a shared photo-detector and timed by a shared internal generator or an external shaft-encoder.
*) A greater number of print-heads can be connected for special applications; contact your local dealer for the optimum configuration.
