Abstract

A print electrode arrangement is shown in Figs. 1 and 2. It consists of a composite of ground and signal planes. The conductors (anodes, cathodes, ground planes) are separated by a suitable insulator material, such as organic compounds, glass or ceramic. The conductors would be of a suitable material, such as platinum, rhodium or an RuOz/glass composite. At one end of the print head array is the print face shown in Fig. 1. On the other end are the interconnection planes. The print face conductor pattern in Fig. 1 is continuous through the array to the connection planes. Electrical connection is made to the conductors in the ground and signal planes by solder, a connector, welding or other suitable means.

Print Electrode Array

A print electrode arrangement is shown in Figs. 1 and 2. It consists of a composite of ground and signal planes. The conductors (anodes, cathodes, ground planes) are separated by a suitable insulator material, such as organic compounds, glass or ceramic. The conductors would be of a suitable material, such as platinum, rhodium or an RuOz/glass composite. At one end of the print head array is the print face shown in Fig. 1. On the other end are the interconnection planes. The print face conductor pattern in Fig. 1 is continuous through the array to the connection planes. Electrical connection is made to the conductors in the ground and signal planes by solder, a connector, welding or other suitable means. The arrangement can be connected to driver modules in an integrated head by a fan-out, such as a flexible printed circuit. Should the array wear out, it can be removed from the fan-out and replaced.
