Abstract

The invention relates to an ink box for an inkjet printer, which comprises a box body, a protective cover capable of relatively moving under the pressure action, an ink box detection mechanism used for detecting the ink box and a residual ink detection mechanism used for detecting residual ink. The ink box detection mechanism comprises a second detection component which is matched with a second sensor on a printer. The second detection component completely shields an optical path between an emitting part and a receiving part of the second sensor after the ink box is completely installed. The residual ink detection mechanism comprises a trigger switch arranged in the box body and a luminescent lamp which is connected in series with the trigger switch. The trigger switch is in a switching-off state when inks are not used up, and is in a switching-on state when the inks are used up. Finally, lights emitted by the emitting part of the second sensor is still shielded by an occlussion boardinstead of a light penetration movable lever at the middle part of the residual ink detection mechanism, therefore, the lights cannot be influenced by the residual ink.

—种用于喷墨打印机的墨盒 - kind of the ink cartridge for an inkjet printer

技术领域 FIELD

[0001] 本发明涉及一种用于喷墨打印机上的墨盒。 [0001] The present invention relates to an ink cartridge for an inkjet printer.

背景技术 Background technique

[0002] 现有的与喷墨打印机配套使用的墨盒,其结构主要包括盒体、在压カ作用下与盒体可相对移动的保护盖、用于检测墨盒的墨盒检测机构和用于检测墨水剰余量的墨水剩余量检测机构,盒体包括用于储存墨水的储墨腔、向打印机的打印头供墨的出墨ロ、大气进ロ。 [0002] with a conventional ink jet printer supporting the cartridges, the cartridge comprising a main body structure, the effect of depression ka movable relative to the cartridge body protective cover for the ink container detecting means for detecting detects an ink cartridge for surplus ink remaining amount remaining amount detecting mechanism, the cartridge comprising an ink reservoir for storing ink, the ink of the ink to the print head of the printer ro, ro into the atmosphere. 为了保证墨盒装进打印机后能够正常工作,墨盒必须包含两种检测机构,在把墨盒安装到打印机的过程中,首先一检测机构使打印机上的第二传感器发射部所发射的光不能返回第二传感器的接收部,随着安装的进行,第二传感器发射部所发射的光返回到第二传感器的接收部,接着另ー检测机构使第一传感器发射部所发出的光不能回到第一传感器的接收部,最后,第一、第二传感器相对应的发射部所发出的光都不能回到相对应的接收部,进而完成了安装的检测,此时打印机提示墨盒安装完成,进行下一部操作。 In order to ensure the ink cartridge into the printer to work properly, the ink container must comprise two detecting means, the process cartridge is mounted to the printer, a first detecting means on the second sensor unit emitting the light emitted by the printer can not be returned to the second receiving the sensor unit, as installed, the light emitted by the second sensor emitting portion receiving section is returned to the second sensor, then the other of the first light detecting means ー sensor emitting portion not issued back to the first sensor receiving unit, and finally, a first, a second light-emitting portion corresponding to the sensor can not be emitted back to the receiving unit corresponding to the detected thereby completing the installation, the installation is completed and the printer prompts cartridge, carried out at a operating. 现有墨盒实现墨盒的检测和墨水量检测的机构如图I所示,包括第一检测部件a、第二检测部件b、第三检测部件C、透光部d和可动杆件e,此方案的检测机构主要是通过对传感器所发出的光的遮挡来实现的,其工作原理是:当墨盒装入打印机时,首先打印机内部的第二传感器所发出的光被不透光的第二检测部件b遮挡,随着墨盒的装入,第二传感器所发出的光不被不透光的第二检测部件b遮挡而接通,接着第一传感器所发出的光被第一检测部件a遮挡,最后第二传感器所发出的光也被不透光的第三检测部件c遮挡,此时打印机提示墨盒存在,可进行下一步操作,第三检测部件c由一透光部d和一不透光的可动杆件e组成,可动杆件e的位置可通过墨盒内墨水量的变化而发生变化,第二传感器所发出的光可根据是否被第三检测部件c遮挡来实现星盒内星水量的检测。 Existing cartridge implement cartridge and the ink amount detecting means is detected as shown in Figure I, a first detecting means comprising a, the second detection means b, third detecting means C, the light-transmitting portion and the movable lever d e, this detecting means mainly through program blocks light emitted from the sensor to achieve, its working principle is: when the ink cartridge into the printer, the first printer of the second detection light emitted from the inside of the second sensor is opaque b blocking member, as the light ink cartridge loading, the second sensor is not emitted opaque second occlusion detection unit b is turned on, then the light emitted by the first sensor is blocked by the first detection unit a, Finally, the light emitted from the second sensor is also opaque third detection means c occlusion, the presence of the ink cartridge and the printer prompts, the next step may be, by a third detection light transmitting member c and an opaque portion d the movable rod member composed of e, e of the movable lever position may vary by varying the amount of ink within the ink container, the light emitted from the second sensor can be implemented according to star-star box is blocked by the third detecting means whether c detection of water. 由此可见,该星盒的星盒安装检测中必须使用星盒星水剰余量检测机构即第三检测部件的遮挡,导致墨盒的墨盒安装检测和墨水剰余量检测不能独立进行。 Thus, the cartridge mounting detection of the star-star-star cassette cartridge must balance detecting means for Surplus water Star i.e. occlusion of the third detecting means, resulting in the ink cartridge and ink cartridge mounting detection for Surplus ink remaining amount detection can not be performed independently.
