Our refill kits already include a reset chip. We offer chips separately to give users more flexibility in how they refill.
Each compatible chip should be replaced on a full cartridge. The chip will last for one cycle after which they must be replaced again.
The chip will store and when requested by the machine, send the machine info on the cartridge part #, Yield, and region. As the cartridge is used, the printer will send the chip information on the pages printed, page coverage and estimated toner remaining. This information is stored on the chip and will be sent back to the printer as requested. The machine is the master. It first sends the data to the chip and then reads the chip data back as needed on all the above items.
The role of the chip: Chips do not shut a machine down at a certain page count. Chips do not have this ability. Machines will use the information stored on the chip to determine if or when it should stop printing, but that information initially came from the machine. It was not calculated by the chip.
Chips do not control toner level information. The machine determines the toner level by counting the number of pixels. The machine uses a formula to calculate the amount of toner used per pixel and stores that data on the chip. Some machines also have mechanical, electrical or optical methods of determining the toner level. Again, this info is stored on the chip, but is not determined by the chip.
