OCP's research & development department released a new set of colour inks for the new Brother cartridges with the black ink being already known:
The new Brother inks are from the Inobella™ ink series, so the black ink is pigment and CMY are dye based inks. The Brother LC223 (LC203), LC225 (LC205), LC227 (LC207) and LC229 (LC209) are single tank inkjet cartridges without an integrated print head. Each cartridge is equipped with a chip for ink level monitoring and identification of the cartridge towards the printer. Without this chip a cartridge would not be recognised by the printer. Means that to successfully remanufacture them you either need to replace or reset the chips.
The ink and air port are mounted to the inner tank which is protected by a plastic housing. So the ink port protrudes from the housing at the cartridge’s front side. At this point, the ink from the inner tank flows into the tubes inside the printer leading toward to the print head. In the front cap of the housing is a round opening; behind it is the air port. Between the air and ink port you can find an inspection glass. In combination with the chip on the upper side the inspection glass is responsible for the ink level detection. When the front part from the outer housing is removed, the inner tank is clearly visible.
The new Brother printers are said to be ideal for smaller workgroups, offering multiple connectivity to PCs, mobile devices and cloud connectivity. Printing directly from mobile devices is possible trough Apple AirPrint, Google Cloud Print or Brother’s iPrint & Scan app. The use of the touchscreen makes the connection to the popular cloud-based platforms such Facebook, Google Drive and Dropbox possible without the need for a PC.
Some of the properties of the corresponding printer models are:
· Print up to A3, Copy, Scan & Fax up to A4
· Colour touchscreen LCD
· Automatic 2-sided printing
· USB+Wireless+Wired connectivity
· Automatic document feeder
