BACKGROUND
For years compatible cartridges have been increasingly undermining Epson's market share of the replacement inkjet cartridge market. Print quality of many (but not all) alternatives is arguably every bit as good when compared to an Epson replacement cartridge and in comparative studies there is a perceptible or even a distinct improvement in colour vibrancy with some makes of Epson compatible inkjet cartridges.

Epson began adding chips on the old Photo 870 cartridges several years ago - These were called "Intellidge" cartridges.

The impression given is that the chips are "clever" and measure ink levels, however, they in fact do no more than add complication and act as a "control" over how many prints a user gets from a cartridge. They do not measure ink level inside the cartridge.

The use of the "Intellidge" chip system has been extended to more and more new printers over that period - to date. Indeed it looks now as though Epson will not be manufacturing any new printers without this chip system. All current models use cartridges with chips fitted.

ABOUT THE EPSON INTELLIDGE CHIP SYSTEM
FACT(1) The chip does not measure actual ink level(s) inside the cartridge
FACT(2) The chip has no connections inside the cartridge body
FACT(3) The chip simply sits on the cartridge -When installed it is connected to circuitry inside the printer - the printer will not function without a chip connected or when a chip reads "empty"
FACT(4) Epson printers will function properly with non Epson (compatible) chips and cartridges.

HOW DOES THE EPSON Chip System "WORK"?
When a new cartridge is installed the chip registers "full" and therefore the Ink Level Monitor shows "full". During printing (or indeed cleaning cycles) the droplets of ink fired through the printhead are being counted - once the total number for the cartridge is reached the chip is "switched off" At that stage the printer can not be used to print and in normal circumstances an end user would instal a new cartridge.

INK LEVEL Chip Resetters
The earliest solution to appear in the UK was the JetTec ILRS system for the Photo 780 / 790 / 870 / 890 / 915. This product was also developed for the 680 / 777 - 1270 / 1280 / 1290 / Photo 900 & 2000p ranges. TheILRS system is discontinued and superseded by Jettec unique 30% and 100% extra cartridges.

Chip Resetter - REFILL SYSTEMS

A number of new systems which allow users to reprogramme / reset the chips and refill cartridges with ink have appeared. The first "Universal" model with unlimited resets was the JY168. This was improved to the present model available the 7 Pin has the best chip reset indication & recognition

The 7 Pin Universal Chip Resetter has been incorporated with inks to make up extra value refill ink kits for popular Epson printers:-

THE FUTURE?

Epson's evolution of chipped cartridges - has - to a degree - meant that a "cat and mouse" game appears to go on - No sooner have the manufacturers of alternative products found a solution to Epson's latest offering - then Epson changes or updates the printer model - the chip and or the cartridge - So in practice chips can be altered to prevent them working with particular designs of "chip re-setter" (e.g. C60 & C62 - cartridge bodies are identical but they have different chip sets)

Purchasers of the new printers will in general have four choices to

(1) Continue using Epson replacement (chipped) cartridges

(2) Switch to Non Epson replacement (chipped) cartridges

(3) Purchase a non Epson chip reprogramming system (As outlined above)

(4) Heavier users of ink can also opt for a Continuous Ink System - (CIS) - Once invested in these systems offer the lowest possible running cost as only bulk ink needs to be purchased.

CONCLUSION

The introduction of chips on cartridges by Epson is a complication which is designed to make end users think twice about the possible implications of using non Epson products. Clearly, any failure of a non-Epson product due to a fault with the alternative chip will cast doubts as to product quality into the innocent user's mind and as a percentage of these users will switch back to using an Epson cartridge - then Epson have succeeded with the chip strategy. It is likely that we will see more and more alternative options like Chip Resetter / refill kit options or continuous ink systems - compatible inkjet cartridges - However, the refilling of cartridges and CIS systems using bulk ink will mainly appeal to a small minority of Epson users.
