The Model L03c is an office and industrial printer that provides multiple forms paper handling capabilities on up to 8-part forms.

It is designed to meet low- to mid-volume output requirements and to provide reliable supply chain printing at an attractive total cost of ownership. A low-cost alternative to laser technology, the CompuPrint 4247-L03c can deliver broad forms flexibility, support for wide format printing, and the convenience of remote printer management when LAN attached.

The Model L03c can have either one or two straight continuous-forms paper paths for outstanding paper-feeding reliability. One paper path is standard and the second path is an optional feature.

The printer features quiet operation, and an easy-to-use operator panel.

Typical applications include transaction processing for invoices, office or internal business documents, as well as bar codes, labels, and multipart forms.

A parallel port for simplified host attachment capability is standard. Optional attachments include:

  • Ethernet local area network (LAN) attachment through the integrated 10/100BASE-T Ethernet adapter
  • USB 2.0
  • Serial RS-232 9-pin
1 Exact print speed varies depending on document complexity, system configuration, software application, the printer driver, and the printer state.

Description

The CompuPrint 4247 Model L03c Printer provides an entry-level model and is designed to complement the other models of the 4247 family.

The 4247-L03c is an office and industrial printer with a workload capacity of up to 44,000 pages per month. The 24-wire print head provides reliable printing on up to 8-part forms.

Print speed

Print speeds (in characters per second) of the 4247-L03c in Single-Byte Character Set (SBCS) mode are up to:

  • 600 cps at 10 characters per inch (cpi) in Fast Draft mode
  • 400 cps in Best Draft Mode
  • 260 cps in Near Letter Quality (NLQ) mode
  • 133 cps in Letter Quality (LQ) mode

Print speeds (in characters per second) of the 4247-L03c in Double-Byte Character Set (DBCS) mode are up to:

  • 467 cps at 6.7 cpi in Fast Draft mode
  • 355 cps in Best Draft Mode
  • 178 cps in Near Letter Quality (NLQ) mode
  • 90 cps in Letter Quality (LQ) mode

Operator panel

The CompuPrint 4247 model L03c contains a multi-lingual LCD display and an intuitive, easy-to-use operator panel. The optional pedestal printer stand (#4463, 4464) completes the solution with a matching stand that simplifies setup and location choices.

The Operator panel contains:

  • A 1-line, 16 character LCD display
  • Two LEDs to indicate the paper path in use
  • Nine operator keys and six status indicators

Printer data-stream emulations

Emulations include:

  • IBM Proprinter: XL24/XL24 AGM, 2391 Personal Printer, Epson ESC/P LQ series, ANSI X3.64 and 4247 native commands
  • In DBCS: Epson LQ1600K with GB18030 character set

In addition, native 4247 mode is selectable with each attachment.

Attachment flexibility

In addition to the standard parallel attachment, USB 2.0, 10/100 BaseT Ethernet, and RS-232 serial are available as optional attachments.

Parallel attachment

The 4247 Model L03c base printer includes a Centronics 36 pin parallel port as standard. The maximum data rate is 100 Kbytes/sec, and the input buffer is up to 128 Kbytes.

Serial attachment

The serial attachment is used to attach a 4247-L03c printer to host systems or personal computers via RS-232 9-pin.

The serial port is from 300 to 38400 baud and has an input buffer up to 128 Kbytes with X on/X off flow control.

Integrated Ethernet

The integrated Ethernet is 10/100 BaseT with an RJ-45 connector.

It supports SNMP and on-board IP configuration while enabling the use of the remote printer management utility.

Remote printer management utility

Remote printer management software, which is included with the optional Ethernet control unit, streamlines setup and minimizes output interruptions. This software enables remote configuration of multiple printers via the user-friendly graphical interface, as well as proactive printer monitoring to provide real-time printer status.

With the Remote Printer Management Utility, the user can:

  • Monitor real-time printer status for all printers on the network via an easy-to-use graphical interface.
  • Enable printers to proactively send printer alerts to the appropriate operator if and when attention is needed.
  • Quickly and reliably configure multiple printers.
  • Utilize a virtual operator panel to maintain complete control from a remote location.

Flexible forms handling

The 4247 Printer provides exceptional forms-handling flexibility. The base printer includes one continuous-forms tractor path; a second continuous-forms front tractor paper path is optional. No rear tractor path is available.

No cut-sheet paper path (as on the Model 003) is available.

This dual front paper path capability allows for a single printer to perform work that formerly required two or more printers. Users can load different forms into each tractor path and then enable the path that corresponds to the desired print job.

The second path may be used by simply tearing off and parking the paper from the first path.

Customizable user controls

Printer setup profiles can be stored and retrieved to save time by switching instantly from one application to another.

Up to four customizable profiles can be created, saved, and then recalled for use.

All-points-addressable graphics capability

Print bar codes, charts, logos, overlays, and more to increase the effectiveness of your documents.

Ribbons

The 4247 L-series ribbon provides excellent reliability and good print quality. A single ribbon is optimized for report, text, bar code labels, and Optical Character Recognition (OCR) printing.

Print quality comparison

The following table summarizes the print quality for four print modes: Fast Draft, Best Draft, Near Letter Quality (NLQ), and Letter Quality (LQ).

The data in the table is for 10 cpi for SBCS, and 6.7 cpi for DBCS.

The table entries without the parenthesis are for SBCS; the table entry in parenthesis is for DBCS. For example, the fast draft horizontal DPI is 120 for SBCS and 60 for DBCS.

 Horizontal Vertical
Horizontal Vertical cell size cell size

Optional features

Bulk order for optional features

Since the 4247-L03c features are all customer-installable, in some cases it is desirable to bulk order certain features so that machines can be easily reconfigured by Business Partners and end users. Thus, there is no maximum order quantity for 4247-L03c MES features.

The maximum number of initial-order attachment features that can be ordered is one.
