DRV-S3200 – EPSON Printhead Driver Board


DRV-S3200 is AEWA printhead driver board for EPSON S3200, S800, i3200, i1600 and T3200 printheads. It connects to AEWA Print Manager Board (APMB) via optical fiber cable. Designed with latest technologies, DRV-S3200 enables to control all digital, analog and power interfaces of various EPSON printheads.


  • Supports 5 different printhead types from EPSON:
    • S3200, 600 dpi, 3200 nozzles, single head.
    • S800, 600 dpi, 800 nozzles, single or double head.
    • i3200, 600 dpi, 3200 nozzles, single head (also HD and SD versions).
    • i1600, 600 dpi, 1600 nozzles, single or double head.
    • T3200, 600 dpi, 3200 nozzles, single head
