There are mainly three types of inkcore board for Videojet small character inkjet printers, type A B & C.
Now we have two new types of inkcore boards, type D & E.
As we look closely at these 5 types of inkcore boards, we can find type A B & C look very much similar, the differences lies on the bottom right part, type A inkcore board doesn’t have any square black dot, type B got 12 ones, while type C have 6 black dots line up in “L” shape.
Type D & E are slimmer than type A B C, these two look similar two, the only difference lies on the middle right part, the 3 little electronic gadgets on type E are bigger.
Despite all these surface difference, the fundamental differences among the Videojet inkcore boards are the program inside the PCB. And one very import thing to bear in mind, every Videojet CIJ printer, such as 1210, 1220, 1510, 1520, 1610, 1620 etc, they can have inkcore board from A to E type, please do take a picture, or be specific of which type(A/B/C/D/E) are you looking for.
