Title
(EN) PRINTER INK CARTRIDGE
(FR) CARTOUCHE D'ENCRE POUR IMPRIMANTE
Abstract
(EN)
A printer ink cartridge includes a rigid cartridge body containing ink, a plurality of ink orifices, a jet plate, a plurality of electrical conductors, and a control and driver circuit. The control and driver circuit is attached to the cartridge body spaced apart from the jet plate and a plurality of electrical conductors connect the jet plate to the control and driver circuit. By locating the control and driver circuit on the ink cartridge, the print quality of the printer ink cartridge is improved. The printer ink cartridge may also include a memory storage element which is connected to the control and driver circuit. The memory storage element stores information regarding the cartridge and the ink stored within the cartridge, such as type, color, date of manufacture of the cartridge, initial amount of ink stored, amount of ink delivered, and amount of ink remaining.

Une cartouche d'encre pour imprimante comprend un boîtier de cartouche rigide contenant l'encre, plusieurs orifices pour l'encre, un support d'ajutages, plusieurs conducteurs électriques et un circuit de commande et d'entraînement qui est fixé au boîtier de cartouche à l'écart du support d'ajutages. Plusieurs conducteurs électriques connectent ce dernier au circuit de commande et d'entraînement. En plaçant ce circuit sur la cartouche d'encre, on améliore la qualité d'impression donnée par cette cartouche d'encre pour imprimante. Cette cartouche peut aussi comporter une mémoire, connectée au circuit de commande et d'entraînement, qui enregiste des informations concernant la cartouche et l'encre qu'elle contient, telles que son type ou sa couleur, la date de fabrication de la cartouche, la quantité d'encre contenue initialement, la quantité d'encre fournie et celle qui reste.
