Epson DFX-8000, 9-pin Impact, Speed 1060 cps

The Epson DFX-8000 printer is an advanced dot matrix printer designed for business applications. The printer combines high performance and reliability with a wide range of features, including high speed printing and automatic paper handling.

DFX-8000 Features

In addition to the high-quality printing and ease of operation you expect from Epson printers, the DFX-8000 offers the following:

  • Extra-fast printing speeds of up to 1066 characters per second at 10 characters per inch, or 960 characters per second at 12 cpi.
  • Two built-in push tractors, front and rear, for convenient paper handling. This dual system lets you switch between types of continuous paper quickly and easily. The printer remembers separate top of form positions for each tractor,
  • An automatic paper back-out feature that allows you to switch between paper loaded on the front or rear tractor without removing either paper supply.
  • A short tear-off feature that saves paper. When a sheet of continuous paper is torn off at the end of a printout, the printer reverse-feeds the remaining paper so that printing can begin at the top of the next sheet.
  • A paper memory feature that produces high quality printing on your multi-part forms by using stored paper format and thickness information to adjust the print head.
  • A width detection feature that automatically adjusts the printing to match the width of the paper loaded in the printer. This prevents the printer from printing directly on the platen, which damages the print head.
  • A micro-adjustment feature that allows you to feed the paper forward or backward to finely adjust the top of form, loading, and short tear-off positions.
  • An improved control panel design that lets you select almost any feature with a single button.
  • Compatibility with the Epson ESC/P commands used by FX-850/1050 and DFX-5000 printers.
  • An IBM emulation mode that provides compatibility with application programs written specifically for IBM printers.

DFX-8000 Options

The following options are available for use with your DFX-8000 printer.

  • Pull Tractor (#8309) - This option improves the handling of heavy multi-part forms and labels. It also enhances printing alignment on preprinted forms.
  • Paper Cutter (C815001) - This option allows you to handle continuous paper more easily by cutting off printed documents for you.
  • Interface Boards - You can use several optional interface boards to supplement the printer’s built-in parallel and serial interfaces.
  • Coax and Twinax interface boards - Two interface boards, Coax and Twinax, let you use the DFX-8000 as a local printer for an IBM mainframe or minicomputer. These boards connect directly to the printer and allow it to function as a local IBM printer without the addition of any other circuitry or components.
