New and GREATLY improved color touch screen interface of the Rena AS-650 makes life so much easier. Redesigned, from setup to diagnostics, and usability, the entire menu system has improved.
The print heads on the Rena 2.5 could only get so close together. The head spacing made it hard for those wanting to print the return address, indicia, and delivery address, hard on smaller envelopes. No longer a problem on the new Rena AS-650 addressing system. And now you have an extra 1/2″ of print height compared to the Rena 2.5
If you had a Rena Imager 2.5 or Rena Imager 3.0 long enough you probably wore out one of the electrical components of head height adjustment. The failing rheostats caused the heads to bounce or jerk up and down. This rare but annoying problem is gone! The head height is now 100% mechanical on the Rena AS-650. No more electronics to wear out and fail.
Good riddance Parallel port, hello USB 3.0, Ethernet, WiFi. You read that right, not only is the Rena AS-650 USB 3.0 and Ethernet-ready, it is WI-Fi ready.
With the old printers, you could not make the necessary adjustments to accommodate some of the specialty inks. This is no longer an issue with the AS-650. By using smart ink technology, the printer knows what cartridge you are using and makes the correct adjustments to make use of the ink. You can even mix and match inks across heads if needed. You can view all the new inks optimized for the Rena AS-650 here.
