CR800 - Inkjet Head Board
CR800 head control board is an FPGA based electronic which is used to control R800 type of InkJet printheads from EPSON. It is developed specially for CST Flatbed InkJet Engraver  and CST Rotary InkJet Engraver machines. It performs data transfer with the external hardware (e.g. CSPM Motherboard) through optical fiber or USB. Its main task is to latch data into the head electronic and generate the required analog waveforms to fire the data on the printing media. Up to 16 user defined firing waveforms can be programmed into the device.
