Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19812480A1] The printer has a control computer (20), at least one replaceable ink reservoir bottle (24) filled with a predefined quantity of liquid, e.g. a solvent or pigment, an installed temporary container filed with the liquid from the reservoir bottle and an installed arrangement for determining the quantity of liquid drawn from the reservoir bottle. The reservoir bottle carries an identifier (38) with encoded information about the liquid it contains, e.g. use-by-date, liquid type, liquid quantity, viscosity etc. The identifier is entered into the computer when a new bottle is installed and checked by a test program. Normal operation is only permitted if at least one selected check criterion is fulfilled. A bottle empty signal is output when the quantity of liquid stated in the identifier has been extracted. An Independent claim is also included for the use of a reservoir bottle in an ink-jet printer.
