HP Designjet Z6200 Photo Printer Series - Ink supplies

Three different components are classed as ink supplies: the Ink Cartridges, the Printheads and the Maintenance Cartridge.

Ink Cartridges

The printer's eight Ink Cartridges provide matte black, photo black, light gray, red, magenta, light magenta, yellow and light cyan ink to the Printheads. The Introductory Ink Cartridges supplied with the printer have 160 ml of ink, which is an average lifespan of one month beyond the ink used to set up and install the printer. The ‘Host’ Ink Cartridges which are purchased to replace the Introductory Ink Cartridges hold approximately 775 ml.
The Ink Cartridges for the HP Designjet Z6200 Photo printer series require no maintenance or cleaning. As long as each Ink Cartridge is inserted correctly into its slot, the ink will flow to the Printheads. Because the Printheads control the amount of ink transferred to the page, you will continue to see high-quality printing results even when the ink levels are getting low.
The front panel displays the status of the Ink Cartridge. Using the front panel, detailed information can be checked on the Ink Cartridges.
The following table lists the Ink Cartridges for the HP Designjet Z6200 Photo printer series.

Printheads

The printheads are connected to the ink cartridges. They use jet action to put ink on the paper. Each printhead has two ink cartridge connection points and two jet nozzles, which means that each printhead accommodates two ink cartridges. For example, the following printhead image indicates a printhead that draws and jets ink from the magenta and yellow cartridges.
The Printheads are extremely durable and do not need to be replaced every time an Ink Cartridge is replaced. They are independent of the Ink Cartridges and will continue giving excellent image quality results even if the Ink Cartridges are low on ink.
