  • Publication number: 20140294607
    Abstract: An operation of a liquid transporting apparatus is controlled by communication using a controller, and the power consumption during communication standby is reduced. The liquid transporting apparatus includes a liquid storage section that stores a liquid; a body section that is connected to the liquid storage section when transporting the liquid; a body control section that controls an operation of a driving section having at least a part of function for transporting the liquid. The body control section determines whether the body section and the liquid storage section are connected. If it is determined that the body section and the liquid storage section are connected, the communication between the body control section and an external control section that performs instruction to control the operation of the driving section starts.
