Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0154912A1] The present disclosure relates to a replaceable ink container (12) for providing ink to an inkjet printing system (10). The replaceable ink container (12) includes an engagement feature (42) disposed on the leading edge (72) and configured for engagement with corresponding engagement features (48) associated with the inkjet printing system (10). The engagement features (48) define a pivot axis (92) about which the replaceable ink container (12) pivots during insertion into the inkjet printing system (10). Also included with the replaceable ink container (12) is a plurality of electrical contacts (78) disposed on a leading edge (72) relative to an insertion direction. The plurality of electrical contacts (78) are disposed on the replaceable ink container (12) below the pivot axis (92) so that pivoting the replaceable ink container (12) about the pivot axis (92) during insertion causes the plurality of electrical contacts (78) on the ink container (12) to move toward corresponding electrical contacts (64) associated with the printing system (10) to establish electrical interconnection therebetween.
