Refurbished Printronix P5214 Cabinet Line Matrix Printer, 1400 LPM

Printronix P5214 line matrix printer uses PSA (Printronix System Architecture), which puts all data control and printer control logic on one circuit board. The use of flash memory on this board permits rapid access to stored printer emulations and fast processing of print data. A variable-speed shuttle and half-step paper control enable these printers to print a wide variety of high-volume jobs with minimum maintenance and maximum reliability.

Although technologically advanced, the P5214 printer is easy to use. The operator can select every printer function at the printer control panel or by sending control codes in the data stream from the host computer to the printer. For greater security and to protect special printer configurations, the operator can program which key combination locks and unlocks the ENTER key on the control panel.

The P5214 is also an excellent graphics printer, with optional features that simplify the creation of images. The IGP and Code V Printronix emulations, for example, are simple but versatile graphics programming languages that load into flash memory.
