N Series systems are stronger, smarter and more capable than almost all other machines on the market.
Needham Coding have made the N Series range a benchmark for Continuous Ink Jet Printers (CIJ). From the N Series industrial exterior, to the easy Touch™ Interface and high speed performance, our range have been carefully crafted to make the N Series market leaders.
Clear and Simple Operation
Needham Coding systems user interface is designed to simplify operation. A large, 10.4” color touch display is employed to allow easy visual of all operating information. Operating functions are large, intuitive icon based buttons, making full use of colour for status indicators.
On-the-Fly Ink and Solvent Filling
With external fluid filler points, you can fill N Series models on-the-fly without opening the enclosure.
The fluid containers are uniquely identified, eliminating the risk of adding solvent or ink into the wrong tank, and with a generous one quart capacity (1.14L), fluid additions can be few and far between.
Large Volume Tanks
Higher-volume print applications can be achieved with less user intervention. LargeVolume™ tanks hold multiple litres of fluids for longer run times and can operate for months between additions. The solvent tank can operate for over 1000 operational hours between refills.
Electronics, software and mechanical design manage the enclosure temperature dynamically throughout extreme cold and hot applications. With automatic detection systems, variable fan speed and a highly efficient air flow, TempSense™ ensures the fluid systems are operating in the correct temperature range. This means large, high volume air filters will operate 12 months between service intervals.
N Series are “Built-to-Last” in a compact, lightweight space saving design. The durable, precision crafted enclosure allows operation in extreme wet and dry environments.
The range are IP55 rated as standard, or alternatively IP65 enclosures are available for more harsh and high-dust conditions.
At the core of every N Series are proprietary, common electronics, and operating system platform to control and operate multiple printing technologies. The range feature high speed, state-of-the-art 208Mhz processor integrated into the main board.
High performance electronics and software feature multitasking to allow multiple events and operations to run simultaneously. With generous memory storage, external USB connectivity, Ethernet, RS232 and multiple inputs/outputs you can be confident of its expandability into the future.
With high speed processing and CIJ specific electronic hardware, the TruPoint™ Technology provides market-leading CIJ print quality, that can dynamically adjust millions of drop patterns on-the-fly.
Touch screen interface
With touch screen functionality, the N Series printers are a breeze to use! The intuitive user interface uses icons, buttons and alerts to operate the machine, allowing you to get started immediately. A simple single button operation is used to stop/start the printer, as well as alert messages, to notify you of diagnostic or maintenance information.
Easy to use visual editor
Using the “drag and drop” visual editor allows you to effortlessly mock-up your printed message. Whether you use multiple lines of text, barcodes or logos, the visual editor will enable you to edit text easily, change layouts and add graphics.

Multiple-printer communication and maintenance is easy to accomplish with CodeConnect. A standard USB can be connected to any N Series printer to move, restore or backup files. Additionally, firmware updates can be completed without the need for PC integration.
The CodeConnect Ethernet connection feature allows you to integrate any N Series to your network. This feature eliminates the need to control the printer from the production line physically. Multiple printers can be controlled from your web browser using an easy to use virtual interface.
The multiple input/output connections offer extra printing functionality, such as message orientation control, count reset, reverse printing and more. The output connections, which holds a solid-state relay, can trigger alert messages.
A parallel connection of eight inputs provide up to 256 possible message selections for on-the-fly remote message selection. Additional features include, reverse message printing, message orientation, product count reset, and print enable/disable. Programmable outputs, including a solid-state relay provide the ability to communicate warning and system fault conditions.
The powerful CodeConnect functionality includes an XML command set for increased system control. The feature enables the user to carry out operations such as remote access to setup and message settings, and commands to system operation control.
