What a flash back...
(SMECC is always looking for anything related to these products)
The HPIL thinkjet version was also used with the hp portable and hp
portable plus laptops.
we have some of them in the SMECC here... but back when I was CEO
Computer Exchange inc we sold lost of these.. it was a small laptop
with applications in ROM but also had a HPIL 3 1/2 disc and an HPIL
Remember to the hp 45 calc.. had HPIL interface also...
There was also a gaggle of cards to the PC and the HP 150 TOUCHSCREEN
that would talk to HPIL and also on IBM side HPIL plus I seem to
remember HPIB cards too.
THANK YOU FOR THE INK WARNINGS!
I did not know about the corrosive qualities of the ink and did not
realize the glycerol content...
I may be wrong but I remember a HPIL a HPIB a Parallel and maybe a
Serial interface version of the HP Thinkjet
Now there was another interface not to be confused with the HPIL it was
called HP HIL HP HUMAN INTERFACE LOOP I remember? it was what the mouse
used on the hp 150 etc...
I may still still have my orig HP Thinkjet service training course
... we were also a service center for a bunch of the HP PC products and
some manuals from classes I attended or my staff attended I saved and they
are in the glassed in HP lock up area where the 2000 access and the hp
micro and mini stuff lives.
I have a bunch of odd VECTRA internals manuals too...
Just wish I had saved more of this stuff...
We also have an HP INTEGRAL (sp?) Unix all in one computer printer
combo... cool concept it has THINKJET printer built in the top of it too.
we never sold this product but SMECC was given a prototype many years
REMEMBER TOO.... THINKJET printers always printed best on "special hp

Another thanks for the tip; I've got an HP2225B (HP-IL, with RS-232
converter) which presumably uses the same cartridge. Will have to check it out.

You got yourself the first consumer inkjet printer ever, from 1984:
Original "A" version with HP-IB interface, useless for regular PCs of
course. Complete with the "SomethingJet" marketing name that has been with us
since then. The key innovation of that printer was the disposable cartridge
with the micro-machined nozzles, which they had a horrendous time
manufacturing at first. And for some incomprehensible reason, you can still order
brand new cartridges from... Staples! Just put a new one in and you should be
good to go.
