Lexmark Forms FP2580 9-Pin Dot Matrix Printer
Reliability and performance, the Lexmark way
Built on Lexmark’s proven heritage for superior performance and reliability, the Lexmark Forms Printer 2500 Series gives you everything you need to achieve your true productivity potential. In addition to rapid print speeds as fast as 510 cps, these printers boast a rugged design that can handle even the most extreme environments and workloads. This includes powerful print heads that reach up to 300 million characters, and a robust MTBF of 12,500 POH*. What’s more, thanks to their 2MB of built-in flash memory, you’ll benefit from greater functionality than ever before, like expanded Bar Code support, non-volatile fonts and remote management! *Power-on hours rated at 25% duty cycle.
Enter a world of versatility
Whatever you’re printing – from invoices to packing slips to shelf labels – you can always count on true Lexmark versatility. Each printer comes with a handy Push/Pull Tractor, allowing you to switch between push and pull feeds effortlessly for a smooth, versatile paper feed. You can also benefit from an array of flexible paper-handling options: like an Automatic Sheet Feeder to load a stack of cut-sheet media, envelopes or multipart forms. Or a Tractor 2 to load two types of continuous forms simultaneously. Want to run longer without stopping? Then opt for the high-yield ribbons, which include automatic re-inking to reduce user intervention.
Life at the printer just got even simpler!
These forms printers are incredibly easy to use right out of the box. First, there’s no Web connection needed for driver set up. Everything’s on the CD – just slide it in and go! Loading ribbons and installing media options takes just seconds. And there are lots of user-friendly operational features too. The new operator panel gives you easy access to all printer functions, and includes intuitive font indicators that show you what the fonts look like. What’s more, each model offers character and page counts via the operator panel (or via Web page on network models), allowing you to monitor supplies and page usage effectively!
Connect on your own terms
Connectivity features include standard Parallel and USB ports, as well as an optional internal serial port*. For even greater possibilities, benefit from our network models which include built-in Ethernet and security features such as IPSec, HTTPS**, SNMPv3 and 802.1x authentication. Additionally, they support multiple protocols including IPX/SPX and TCP/IP (IPv4 & IPv6). Best of all, each network model comes with MarkVision Professional™ software, which gives you a simple new way to manage your printers remotely. You can configure and query your devices, update firmware and troubleshoot issues – all via a flexible, user-friendly interface. A major plus for your helpdesk! *Serial port not available with network model ** This product includes software developed by the OpenSSL Project for use in the OpenSSL Toolkit.
