Highlights
Three basic print speeds:
200 cps (9-wire head) (xx1 models only)
400 cps (18-wire head) (xx2 models only)
600 cps (18-wire head) (xx3 models only)

Print quality modes:

DP Mode - The character box is 9 dots high x 10 dots wide. The nominal DP character matrix is 7 dots high (0.098 in.) x 4 of 7 wide. Maximum character box height is 0.126 inches.

DP Text Mode - The dot density is doubled horizontally compared to DP mode. The character box is 9 dots high x 20 dots wide. The nominal DP Text character matrix is 7 dots high (0.098 in.) x 7 of 13 wide. Maximum character box height is 0.126 inches.

NLQ Mode (Near Letter Quality) - The dot density is doubled both horizontally and vertically compared to DP mode. The character box is 18 dots high x 20 dots wide. The nominal NLQ character matrix is 12 dots high (0.091 in.) x 7 or 13 wide. Maximum character box height is 0.133 inches.

Vertical spacing of 6 and 8 lines per inch.Horizontal spacing of 10, 12, &15 characters per inch. A special proportional font is available in DP TEXT and NLQ resulting in an average spacing of 11.5 characters per inch.

Machines with serial number F0001 and later also have 16.7 characters per inch in DP Mode only.

Advanced print functions supported through the new Intelligent Printer Data Stream (IPDS) include vector graphics, resident bar codes, OCR A and B, raster image, and electronic forms (overlays). Bar codes supported by the 4224 are: Code 3 of 9, MSI, UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-8, EAN-13, Industrial 2 of 5, Matrix 2 of 5, and Interleaved 2 of 5.

Machines after serial number AA001 also support Code 128 and Codabar. (Refer to the "IBM 4224 Printer Product and Programming Description Manual", GC31-2551, for a complete description of barcode printing capabilities.)

Word processing functions include proportional spacing, sub/super script, and various emphasis capabilities (software-dependent).

Print quality, e.g., NLQ, is operator selectable and may be overridden by software.

Print line maximum of 13.2 inches.

Paper width from 3 inches to 15 inches (continuous forms).

Multi-part forms up to 4 parts may be used.

Some 5- and 6-part forms may function satisfactorily but are not warranted by IBM.

Graphics printing at 144 x 144 dots per inch.

Three operator changeable forms devices provide paper handling flexibility for continuous forms, document on demand, and document insertion.

Front loading and straight paper path provides operator convenience, added reliability, and reduction of multi-part form "shingling".

Advanced jam detection checks for paper motion when using continuous forms (Continuous Forms Device and Document on Demand).

Paper skew and insertion errors are detected when using cut forms (Document Insertion Device). Ribbon cartridge allows "clean hands" removal and installation.

Operator replaceable printhead improves machine availability. Multi-function operator panel includes 3-position digital display.

Cable-thru and termination are standard for twinax attachments through the use of a U-connector assembly (included).

Compact table top design fits a variety of commercially available printer tables and stands.
