Global Inkjet Systems announces support for Xaar printheads


Global Inkjet Systems (GIS) has added to the range of printheads supported by its Inkjet Operating System with the creation of a 4-channel Xaar Head Personality Board, the HPB-XR-C4.


Providing full control of the majority of Xaar’s printheads, including the Xaar 1001, the HPB will connect up to 4 Xaar heads to a Print Manager Board.

“We are excited to offer our customers the ability to print with Xaar heads at full speed, with full grey-level support, as well as control over all other head settings” said Nick Geddes, Managing Director of GIS.

The HPB-XR-C4 Head Personality Board provides communication between the GIS Printer Manager Board and the following Xaar printhead models:

Xaar 1001    Xaar 500     Xaar 760
Xaar 318      Xaar 128     Xaar 126

  • Four independent channels
  • Access to all the standard Xaar printhead settings (voltage trim, binary/greyscale mode, waveform)
  • Additional control over printhead power
  • All 4 heads powered via a convenient single power connection
  • Small size for easy installation
  • Scalable for large arrays of printheads
