PMB-C2 – 2 Channel – USB 2.0

GIS Inkjet Operating System

The PMB-C2 is a core hardware component of the GIS Inkjet Operating System. It enables a standard Windows PC to drive multiple industrial inkjet printheads via USB 2.0 in Single Pass, Scanning XY and custom system. The PMB-C2 also supports drop watching.

Complete Printhead Control

The PMB-C2 provides read and write access to all available OEM printhead settings including temperature control, voltage and waveform settings, binary and greyscale calibration.

Drop Placement Control

The Advanced Encoder Manager System (AEMS) supports industry standard encoders and product detect / print go signals and provides per-printhead encoder divide and sub-pixel adjust, delivering complete drop placement control and repeatability.

The combined PMB-C2 is a component of the GIS Inkjet Operating System. It is designed to drive any manufacturer’s printhead using GIS Head Personality Boards.


Multiple PMB-C2s can be stacked to drive larger arrays of printheads.


Each printhead is driven by a dedicated high speed channel capable of delivering print data on demand in the most demanding of applications.

High speed on-board RAM provides ample buffering for wide-format and single pass systems, allowing the specialised software drivers to deliver continuous static and variable data streams to the printheads.

Advanced Applications

With the power to simultaneously drive multiple printhead technologies off the same system at different resolutions, the PMB-C2 opens up a world of possibility for printer development and manufacturing.
