Controllers & Data Stations

Kao Collins is working with a controller manufacturer to try to create replacement controllers for Kodak Versamark printers. The new controllers are being designed to run other printheads in addition to Kodak Versamark printheads; that way, a customer could potentially run different printheads through the same controller on the same job.

The controller project is ongoing. We will provide updates as we move forward.


  • Kao Collins has repaired, and in some cases, upgraded parts. Kao Collins believes it can repair most controller rips and other failed boards.
  • Kao Collins has assisted customers who could no longer get tach and cue boards for their CS400 controller by upgrading an older S220 tach and cue to a 400, enabling it to work in their CS400 series controller.
  • Kao Collins is testing other replacement parts including pumps, valves, and filters.
  • Kao Collins has developed a flush feature and module that enables diagnostics to be run without turning the systems off. It is fully compatible with previous flush modules.
