Laser printers have been dominating the business world for decades now. Similarly, Brother® is a renowned brand name which has never failed to impress its customers with its premium range of monochrome printer series. All laser printers from Brother come with black toner cartridges that are equally popular and deliver high quality prints at a low operating cost. In this blog we will be focusing on Brother Toner cartridges and its newly launched brother tn760 compatible toner cartridge.
Function of a toner chip
A toner chip is an essential part of laser printer. It sends alert to the users when the toner is low with the help of pop up messages. These chips are also known as printer or ink smart chips and used by printers to keep a watch on reserves and levels of your present toner cartridges. It works as a communication medium for printing consumables and laser printer.
In simple words, the main function of a toner chip is to store printer’s information that a printer sends back to it. These information include the print volume of toner cartridges, type of toner cartridges and coverage of toner. In order to ensure the work efficiency of the printers, once the messages are gone cannot be recovered.
Not all toner chips are suitable for all printers. That is why you need to be aware of the type of your laser printer while buying a new toner chip because only the right type of toner chip can make your cartridges work inside your laser printer. The toner chip informs about the insufficient toner only when the printer determines it. When the toner cartridge is used up, the toner chip needs to be replaced. This is because the service life of the chip is dependent on the life of the toner cartridge.
