DALLAS / FT WORTH, TX — ID Technology powered by ProMach, a leading provider of labeling, coding and marking solutions, has announced the availability of the latest update to the ciSeries range of continuous inkjet (CIJ) printers from Citronix – the ci5000 Series. The Citronix ci5000 Series printers will debut at Pack Expo. (ID Technology Pack Expo Booth #S-3707)
ID Technology is the exclusive provider of Citronix printers in the United States. Building upon the success of the previous ciSeries machines, this next generation model offers high-speed, small character inkjet printing capabilities. The model series includes the ci5200, ci5300, ci5500 and ci5650 models.
Features and Benefits
Citronix printers are well known for being robust, easy to use and simple to maintain, and the new product line builds on this legacy.
One of the greatest enhancements made to the new ciSeries is the large 1024x600, 24-bit color, 10.1” capacitive touchscreen display. This touchscreen is built for industrial environments with abuse resistant tempered glass that protects against scratches, shatters, and solvents. In addition to being durable, the ciSeries continues to be the most user-friendly CIJ printer in the industry, providing an intuitive, clutter free, point and tap, quick to navigate GUI.
Another step forward in its design is the introduction of ciEasyServ — a quick, easy, no mess/no fuss, tool-free service module. It combines all of the serviceable fluid filters into one self-enclosed service module, and it can be replaced in less than one minute. This allows for technician-free filter changes and an increased service interval from 6000h to 8000h.
Like previous ciSeries generation models, the new ci5000 Series remains a single PCB system. However, the new model series has upgraded their specifications. The ciSeries now provides RAM from 64Mb to 1Gb, flash from 16Mb to 512Mb and processor from 66Mh to 250Mhz. Additional key new features to highlight include a new quick access online HELP database, standard on board USB and SD Card ports for fast and simple backup/restore functionality, Quick Connects for photocells, encoders, and alarm beacons. Upgrades to the PC Free and Hassle Free firmware provide the benefit of no longer needing to be tied to an Ethernet connection.
The ci5000 Series still boasts an industry leading 30-month warranty with an option to upgrade to a 5-year warranty.
