What is a toner chip?

Toner chip is a component installed in printer to monitor and count the page yield during the process of printing.

Usually it stores information like toner cartridge type, version and remaining pages in its storage units. Sometimes, it is specifically configured with a module so that it can respond to the request of encryption authentication from printer or copier.

Printer toner cartridges are designed for a specific page yield. When a certain page is consumed, the printer will then communicate with the toner chip and the latter will record the information and give warnings.


What is a toner chip’s function?

Toner chip’s main function is to store information.

Some information can be rewritten by printer, like the remaining toner and  pages. Printer will read these data according to print job and send the processed data back to the toner chip for saving after a series of calculation.

While the rest of them cannot be rewritten, such as region information and type of toner cartridges. This kind of information is to ensure the fitting match of toner cartridge with printer so that printer can work.
