The IJ4000 HMI Impulse Jet Controller is engineered for high resolution large character printing applications. The 10.2” color touch screen display is specially enclosed in stainless steel for industrial environments. The user interface is designed to simplify operator inputs, achieving dynamic print message designs compatible with Unicode supported languages and complex barcodes.

Installation on the line is not required. The IJ4000 HMI can be installed as far away as 100 meters when connected via Ethernet and an unlimited distance when connected through a Network.
