I have a Windows 7 EditorGT but my customers want me to go to Windows 10 for security reasons, that is, Windows 7 is not anymore supported by Microsoft.
I want to keep the costs down, I can’t afford to buy an expensive controller and an inkjet on top of that, or implement a new interface to my selective machine from Sitma or Müller-Martini. Also, I need the same production logs for my customers.
I want to run Domino-K600, Domino-A400, Domino-Bitjet, Videojet-BX, Videojet-Excel, Kodak Refresh, HP Imager, all eZ-inkjets, serial magnetic encoders, serial cameras like Axode and Lake Image, RFID devices, etc.
What do I do ?
Take the Windows 10 GT controller
You can buy a new controller and inkjet from someone but first contact Graph-Tech USA and check out our new Windows 10 implementation with the following advantages:
- You do not need to retrain all your operators and different shifts. We implemented the same user-interface, no re-training needed!
- You can use the same shaft encoder and photocell that you already have, no need to replace them!
- You don’t even have to make new jobs, our implementation will take most of the old jobs and run them under Windows 10!
- You have the same functionality, like read-and-print, selective gathering, etc. that makes the EditorGT one of the most versatile inkjet controllers in the world allowing almost any application, on any machine, driving any inkjet !
- With the new SuperTracker that works through the backbone of the internet, the tcp/ip network, you will have I/O hardware for many years to come!
- Many new controllers do not even support serial interfaces, but many inkjets and cameras work with serial interface only. The SuperTracker comes standard with 4 serial interfaces and you add 8 or 16 ports more!
- Inkjets and other that can be driven from the GT controller:
- Domino K600, Domino-Bitjet, Domino-A400.
- Videojet BX, Excel, 1610.
- Kodak Refresh
Only draw-back: you will not be able to drive old inkjets that have boards that run on the obsolete ISA bus. Thus, if you have
- A Videojet Print-Pro or SR50, you will have to go to the BX which has tcp/ip.
- A Scitex 5120 or 5240, you will to go to the Kodak Refresh line which has tcp/ip.
- A Mailjet from Imaje, not sure if they have a product in this market.
