喷墨打印机用墨盒 Inkjet printer cartridge

技术领域 FIELD

[0001] 本发明涉及一种墨盒,具体是指一种喷墨打印机用的墨盒。 [0001] The present invention relates to an ink cartridge, specifically refers to an inkjet printer using the ink cartridge. 背景技术 Background technique

[0002] 现有技术中,光学传感方法作为喷墨打印机用墨盒内墨水余量的检测方法之一, 已得到广泛应用。 [0002] The prior art optical sensing method using an ink jet printer as one method for detecting the remaining amount of ink the ink cartridge, has been widely used.

[0003] 现有墨盒普遍采用浮筒、浮杆与遮光构件相连的结构通过浮力实现遮光构件在发光部件与受光部件之间的移动来检测墨盒内墨水余量。 [0003] widely used conventional cartridge buoy structure connected to the floating rod and the light shielding member shielding member between the light emitting member and the light-receiving member moves the remaining amount of ink detected by the ink cartridge to achieve buoyancy. 如附图1所示,当墨盒内墨水充足时,浮筒3'在墨水浮力的作用下通过浮杆4 '将遮光构件1'保持在能覆盖激光检测点2丨的位置,让受光器无法接收到光信号;当墨盒内墨水不足时,如附图2所示,墨水浮力减小,浮筒3'开始下沉,通过浮杆的作用使遮光构件1 '上抬并偏离激光检测点2'的位置,遮光构件”无法阻挡检测光束通过激光检测点2',受光器顺利接收到光信号后打印机可发出更换墨盒的提示信号。该种结构墨盒不但需要通过精确计算遮光构件1 '移动所需浮力来设置浮筒3'与遮光构件1'的结构,而且需要在盒体上开具容纳浮筒3'、遮光构件1'及连接二者的浮杆4'的槽,制作及结构均较复杂。此外,因为该种结构需要通过浮杆4'的机械转动来完成检测功能,可靠性受浮杆4 '的机械转动部件限制。 As shown in Figure 1, when sufficient ink in the ink cartridge, the float 3 'under the effect of buoyancy of the ink by the float rod 4' light-shielding member 1 'at the position detection point of the laser can cover 2 Shu, so that the light receiving unit can not receive an optical signal; insufficient ink when the ink cartridge, as shown in Figure 2, the buoyancy reduction of ink, the float 3 'began to sink, by the action of the float rod light shielding member 1' detection point elevation and offset from the laser 2 ' position, the light blocking member "can not stop detection beam ', the optical receiver successfully receives the optical signal receiving printer may emit replaceable ink cue. this kind of structure cartridge only need to accurately calculate the light shielding member 1' by a laser detection point 2 is moved desired buoyancy structure is provided to float 3 'and the light shielding member 1', and the need to issue the box body accommodating the float 3 ', the light shielding member 1' and is connected to both the floating rod 4 'slot, and making the structure complicated than that. in addition, since this type of structure needs 'to complete the detection of mechanical rotation, reliability by the float rod 4' by means of mechanical float rod rotating member 4 limits.

发明内容 SUMMARY

[0004] 本发明提供一种改进的墨盒,无需浮筒、浮杆及遮光构件等部件,解决了现有墨盒感光构件结构复杂,性能不可靠的问题。 [0004] The present invention provides an improved ink cartridge, without the float member, the float rod and the light shielding member and the like, to solve the complex structure of the conventional ink cartridge of the photosensitive member, the problem of unreliable.

[0005] 为解决上述技术问题,本发明提供的技术方案为:墨盒可拆卸地安装在喷墨打印机墨盒座上,其中喷墨打印机墨盒座的墨盒安装部位两侧分别设有激光源和感光器,激光源的发光点和墨盒上透明感光构件的激光检测点以及感光器的接收点位于同一直线上,所述墨盒包括用于容纳墨水且带有出墨口的盒主体;透明感光构件构成的内腔与墨盒主体容纳墨水的内腔相连通;所述透明感光构件为两个互成夹角的透明反射板;所述激光源发出的检测光束穿过两个透明反射板。 [0005] To solve the above technical problem, the technical solution of the present invention provides: an ink cartridge detachably mounted in the ink jet printer cartridge seat, wherein the cartridge mounting portion on both sides of the ink jet printer cartridge holder are provided with a laser source and a photoreceptor receiving dot light emitting point of the laser source and the laser spot on the detection of the transparent photosensitive member cartridge and a photoreceptor on the same line, the ink cartridge for containing ink and comprising a cartridge body having an ink supply port; a photosensitive member formed of a transparent receiving lumen of the body lumen and an ink cartridge in communication; the transparent photosensitive member into two cross-transparent reflection plate angle; detecting the light beam emitted from the laser light source passes through two transparent reflection plate.

[0006] 作为优选,每块透明反射板的厚度小于0. 8mm,该结构能使透明反射板保持良好的透光率。 [0006] Preferably, the thickness of each plate is less than the transparent reflector 0. 8mm, the structure enables the reflective transparent plate to maintain good light transmittance.

[0007] 作为优选,两个透明反射板的夹角角度在20°〜120°之间,该结构能有效控制透明反射板本身对检测光束的反射作用。 [0007] Preferably, the angle between two transparent reflection plate between 20 ° ~120 °, the reflector structure can effectively control the transparent plate itself reflection light beam detection.

[0008] 作为优选,所述墨盒主体容纳墨水的内腔分为主腔和副腔,副腔与主腔通过贯穿于两腔底部的通孔相连通,该结构能提高墨盒内墨水余量的检测精度。 [0008] Advantageously, the ink cartridge main body accommodating a lumen divided into the main chamber and the secondary chamber, the secondary chamber and the main chamber through a through-hole through the bottom of the two chambers in communication, the configuration can improve the balance of the ink cartridge the detection accuracy.

[0009] 本发明涉及的透明感光构件工作原理如下:透明感光构件上的激光检测点和打印机墨盒座上的激光源发光点以及感光器接收点位于同一直线上,当墨盒内墨水含量低于激光检测点所处水平面时(如附图4所示),激光源发出的检测光束没有受到墨水的折射影响, 顺利穿过两个透明反射板到达感光器,打印机依此发出更换墨盒的提示信号;当墨盒内墨水含量等于或高于激光检测点所处水平面时(如附图5所示),激光源发出的检测光束穿过第一块透明反射板后,通过激光检测点时因受到覆盖在激光检测点所处水平面的墨水折射的影响,线路发生偏离,穿过第二块反射板后射向感光器之外的位置,感光器检测不到激光源发出的检测光束,因此打印机不发出更换墨盒的提示信号。 [0009] Transparent photosensitive member according to the present invention works as follows: the laser light source and a light emitting point of the laser photoreceptor reception point detection point on the photosensitive member and the transparent printer cartridges seat on the same line, the ink cartridge when the ink amount is less than the laser when the detection point is located horizontal (as shown in Fig. 4), detects the light beam emitted from the laser source is refracted not influence the ink smoothly passes through the two transparent reflection plate reaches the photoreceptor, so the printer emits ink cartridge replacement prompt signal; when the ink cartridge when the ink level equal to or higher than the horizontal plane in which the laser spot is detected (e.g. 5 shown in the drawings), the detection beam emitted from the laser source passes through a first transparent reflecting plate, the laser light passes through the detection point being covered by Effect of laser level detection points which ink refraction, line deviates, after passing through the position of the second block toward the photoreceptor outside of the reflecting plate, the light beam detected by the detector photoreceptor not emitted from the laser source, so the printer is not issued to replace cue cartridge.

[0010] 根据上述方案和工作原理可以看出本发明具有如下优点:一、墨盒的盒体内部不需安装浮筒、浮杆与遮光构件,简化了墨盒盒体制作工艺,同时增大了墨盒内储存墨水的空间。 [0010] According to the above it can be seen and operation of the present invention has the following advantages: First, the inside of the case is not need to install the ink container float, the float rod and the light shielding member, simplifying the production process cartridge cartridge, the ink cartridge while increasing the storage ink. 二、通过墨水对检测光束的折射作用来实现墨盒内墨水余量的检测,采用固定结构的透明感光构件,检测过程中不需要使用如现有技术中浮杆之类的活动机械部件,因此增加了墨盒结构上的可靠性。 Second, ink is achieved by refraction of the light beam detector detecting the remaining ink cartridge, a transparent photosensitive member fixing structure, the detection process does not require the use of moving mechanical parts, such as the prior art floating lever or the like, thus increasing the the reliability of the structure on the cartridge.
