IBM 6400-i15 Line Matrix 1500 Line Per Minute Speed
In the 6400i Series of printers, the printer model numbers indicate printing speed and physical configuration.
All printer models start with the 6400- series prefix, followed by a three digit or alphanumeric suffix. Models containing only numbers indicate cabinet models. Model numbers containing the letter "P" indicate pedestal models.
For cabinet models, the alphanumeric suffix refers to the printer's maximum speed in lines per minute (lpm): 6400-i15 for 1500 lpm.
The IBM 6400i series consist of 500, 1000, 1500, and 2000 lines per minute (lpm) models and are packaged in various configurations. All of the models offer software versatility and the latest refinements in line matrix printing technology. The print mechanisms are housed in sound-insulated cabinets which make the printer family among the quietest printers in the world. Additionally, your printer has a flexible architecture that allows you to add new features and emulations as they become available.
LinePrinter Plus is the standard emulation. LinePrinter Plus includes the Epson FX-1050, Printronix P-Series, P-Series XQ, Serial Matrix and Proprinter III XL emulations. Coax/Twinax, IPDS, ANSI and the IGP/PGL and IGP/VGL graphics enhancement emulations are available as optional upgrades. No matter what emulation is installed, your printer is easy to use. The message display and lights on the control panel communicate with you directly and clearly. You can select every function on your printer at the control panel, or you can send commands from the host computer.
The printer combines the use of Flash, RAM, and nonvolatile RAM for program execution. The Flash is used for all program, font, and emulation storage. New fonts, emulations, or program updates can be downloaded to Flash memory via the parallel or serial interface, or through the PrintNet interface. The RAM is used for buffers, print image storage, and execution variables. The non-volatile RAM stores configuration, statistics, and internal parameters. The printer model numbers indicate printing speed and physical configuration.
