Abstract
(EN)
A printer (120) for printing onto a substrate (180) includes a substrate feed mechanism (186) configured to secure the substrate (180) during printing and a print mechanism (124) configured to print on the substrate (180). A transceiver (140) is configured to transfer power through a non-physical link to a radio frequency (RF) circuit (142) carried on a printer supply (144) to thereby power the RF circuit (142). The transceiver (140) also responsively receives printer supply data through a non-physical link from the RF circuit (142).
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un dispositif d'impression (120) destiné à imprimer un substrat (180) comprenant un mécanisme d'alimentation (186) configuré de manière à fixer le substrat (180) durant l'impression et un mécanisme d'impression (124) configuré afin d'imprimer le substrat (180). Un émetteur-récepteur (140) est configuré en vue de transférer de l'énergie au moyen d'une liaison hertzienne à un circuit radiofréquence (RF) (142) porté par un accessoire (144) du dispositif d'impression afin d'alimenter le circuit RF (142). L'émetteur-récepteur (140) reçoit aussi en retour, du circuit RF (142), des données d'accessoire du dispositif d'impression via une liaison hertzienne.
