Intelligent Ink Monitoring System
Every SBL2 ink bottle features an IC Chip that allows shops to maintain a seamless workflow throughout high-volume production. This Intelligent Ink Monitoring System monitors ink levels and prompts users when levels run low. A clear LED display makes it easy to track ink usage.
