Title: RECORDING DEVICE
Abstract:
A recording device capable of accurately detecting the presence or absence of ink particles ejected from a plurality of ejecting outlets arranged in lateral direction of a head, wherein the view field of an infrared sensor is not directed toward flying ink particles but directed toward landed ink particles, whereby the thermal energy of stationary ink particles remarkably increases a thermal energy applied to the infrared sensor.
