NEW Electric Inker Controller

NEW Electric Inker Controller

Actuate a DieMark Electric Inker using Prober, Foot / Hand Switch, or PC

The NEW 350-0028 DieMark Electric Inker Controller is designed to power a Xandex Electric Inker. It is intended for uses where a wafer prober or other actuation signal is not present or is not configured to drive the actuator. Designed to work with 12V and 24V DieMark actuator coils, the controller automatically detects the coil’s voltage after the first signal actuation and automatically sets output voltage to either 24 or 48 VDC (2x rated coil voltage).

The Electric Inker Controller is powered by an external 24VDC power supply and automatically detects the DieMark inker's actuator voltage upon the first triggered pulse after power up. It then sets the output signal to either a 24V or 48V depending on the coil Voltage. The output signal to the inker can be triggered by a wafer prober signal, a foot or hand switch, or serial data commands via a PC.

The Controller can be signaled to actuate a coil via three input ports: by an “ink” signal from a wafer prober or other inking equipment or via an optional foot switch available from Xandex. Either signal source can be connected to the SIGNAL port.

The controller can be signaled via a hand switch (not available from Xandex) connected to the SWITCH port. The controller can also be signaled to actuate a coil and serially programmed via the USB C port connected to a PC.
