Amano CP3000 black ink cartridge ribbon

This is the only ribbon that will work in the CP3000
This is the only ribbon you want to put in the Amano NS5100: 

Extended use ribbon, Amano P/N 316353 
The CP3000 and NS5100 ship from the factory with this ribbon.

The PIX ribbon will fit, but it will not work with the CP3000

Reason: The ink is different.  The machine is actually looking at the shade of the color.
Additionally, the CP3000/CP5000 ribbon comes with a large ink reservouir, which makes the ribbon last several times longer than the standard PIX ribbon.

Unique to the Amano CP3000 top loading time clock:  It prints a dense black square to the left of every punch.  The machine senses this black square and uses this information to tell it where to print the next line - that's how it prints down on the card and doesn't overprint.
This process uses a lot of ink.  The ribbon has an ink supply build-in to the cartridge, that's what the buldge is.

The NS5100 clocks get the same ribbon, it lasts 3x as long as normal time clock ribbons.
