It vacuums the ink from the bottom of the print heads during an automatic cleaning and ink purge cycle
It vacuums ink from the prjnt heads during automatic purgeIs the rest of the system wired up for 240?
Is that for the vacuum table, or some sort of add-on for general cleaning?
Is the user end / PC part not 120v? Fairly certain the electronic part is 120v... But I could be wrongMy guess here, since the whole system is designed for 240v, why should one component be 110v?
No? Well I can only repeat myself... whole system is designed for 240v.Is the user end / PC part not 120v? Fairly certain the electronic part is 120v... But I could be wrong
Hello. Did you ever find a solution for the shop vac that would work with US 110 power so you don't have to purchase the $550 shop vac from HP? ThanksWall outlet — 100-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz, provides temporary power tothe vacuum system when it is necessary to remove power from theprinter for service
According to the site prep guide... Looks like the 120 is for backup power, which is interesting because my machines screen won't turn on if it's not plugged in. I'll have to play with it once I'm back in the shop tomorrow!
Thanks for the reply. That is what I came up with too. Didn't find any posts that anyone has done this successfully, but the tech I work with says he has another customer that does it, but he said he didn't know how. Seems like it should work. Can't seem to find a vac quite this small, but got the smallest Craftsman ($35) from Lowes and the step down off Amazon, so will try it out tomorrow!Sadly no. I didn't know it was just a shop vac before I got it serviced.
You can buy a 220v to 110v stepdown converter for $50 on Amazon - then plug a 120v into that. I don't know if HP has any software detection to block that... But I doubt they would. Amazon has free returns too.... So doesn't hurt to buy one, hook up a normal vacuum or whatever vacuum you have around to it and see if it throws an error. Worst case you're paying $10 to ship it back to amazon
