Always turn the unit off before removing or installing cartridge
Be mindful of the cartridge expiration date
Turn on unit (press trigger and Print On/off Button at the same time
Wait for pressurization of the unit to stop
Move unit to product to be printed
Select message to print
Begin printing by
Pressing the Print On/off button
Pressing trigger once and releasing
Move EBS‐250 along product to be printed
Press trigger and “F” key until LED’s cycle and turn off
Loosen the ink cartridge
This releases the pressure from the ink system
Re‐attach the cartridge
This prevents dust, dirt or air from entering the back of the unit
Apply a moderate amount of cleaning solution to a piece of cleaning cloth, and gently wipe the nozzle plate
Store the unit in the case until next use
After 50 hours of use, or when the charge light is on, charging the unit battery is recommended
Please follow the EBS procedures, included in the user’s manual
This manual is included on the disk inside the carrying case
A new unit has been purged with the cleaning cartridge that matches the ink type
Install the ink cartridge and power‐up the unit
Press the Print On/Off button
Wait for pressurization to finish
Ensure adequate ventilation in the area
Point the unit downward into a hazmat‐type container or scrap cardboard
Press the trigger 3 times (within 1‐2 seconds) and hold the trigger in on the third press
The unit will emit 2 beeps, then the unit will ‘fire’ all 16 nozzles
This is called the PURGING procedure
When the purging starts, it will take approximately 5‐10 seconds until the cleaning fluid is replaced by ink
At this time, release the trigger
The unit should be purged of ink based on the following recommended intervals
Water Based Ink
Once per week
Ethanol Based Ink
Once per week
Acetone Based Ink
Once every two days
MEK Based Ink
Once every two days
Every day after the shift is over
Purging the unit of ink
Power down (normal power down procedure)
Remove the ink cartridge
If the HandJet® cannot be switched off, remove the cartridge and cross the cartridge contacts in the rear plate with a wire (e.g. bended paper clip) until the HandJet® goes off.
You can create an own graphic directly in the PC program.
For this open the bitmap editor.
An existing logo can be inserted as follows:
Select from the font list “Spec 7“ or “Spec 16“. The symbols appear after typing the corresponding capital.Spec 7. Spec 16.
If the nozzle plate is dirty, clean it by spraying solvent on it. Hold the printer face down spray from below, that no solvent (mixed with ink) can flow into the unit or onto the guiding rolls.
When you use special inks, e.g. pigmented inks or fast drying inks, it can happen that due to pigments or ink rests nozzles will be blocked. In this case it is recommended to use a cleaner cartridge daily. Use the purge function to flush out old ink rests. This is also recommended when a HandJet® will not be used for longer time. You must take care to use a cleaner which is adequate to the ink base.
Click in the Guides menu on Network configuration.
The network window appears and a configuration dialog. To add more printers later, you can also
click here.All printers can be switched on at the same time. In the network window appears after each recognized and added printer an entry “Handjet® with its serial number. After finishing the network highlight this printer in the list with which you want to communicate.
