This DX5 printhead model is compatible with all DX5 based Chinese printers and doesn't require any decoder. This is the original Epson DX5 printhead; it is not modified nor coded.
This printhead should not be used on Mutoh Valuejet or Mimaki JV33 / JV5 printers as it has different voltages and therefore offers various image quality. PPHMUVJ1204 and PPHMIJV5006 should be used on Mutoh and Mimaki printers.
