Abstract

The CompuPrint 4247 Model X03c is a professional industrial impact matrix printer capable of printing at speeds of up to 800 cps in Data Processing (DP) mode(1). Other print-quality choices are DP Text, Near Letter Quality (NLQ) Gothic, NLQ Courier, OCR-A, and OCR-B.

Note: (1) Exact print speed varies depending on document complexity, system configuration, software application, the printer driver, and the printer state.

Model Abstract 4247-X03c

The CompuPrint 4247 Model X03c is a professional industrial heavy-duty printer with a workload capacity of up to 44,000 pages per month. The 18-wire print head delivers reliable printing on up to 8-part carbonless forms in DP, DP Text, NLQ, and OCR print modes.

Highlights

The CompuPrint 4247 Model X03c industrial impact matrix printer is built on the strengths of previous models of the CompuPrint 4247 family and features:

  • Print speed of up to 800 characters per second (cps) in DP mode
  • Remote printer management capabilities when LAN attached
  • Parallel, Ethernet, serial, and USB 2.0 optional integrated attachments
  • Auto forms loading, auto thickness adjustment, and auto eject to enhance operator productivity
  • Workload capacity of up to 44,000 pages per month
  • Multiple data stream emulations to provide easy replacement of older printers
  • Forms width from 3 to 17 in (76 to 432 mm)
  • Maximum print width of 13.6 in (348 mm)
  • One or two continuous forms front tractors for maximum forms-feeding reliability
  • Easy-to-use operator panel
  • Quiet operation
  • DP, DP Text, NLQ, OCR-A, and OCR-B fonts
  • Extensive bar code support
Description

The Model X03c is an office and industrial printer that provides multiple forms paper handling capabilities on up to 8-part carbonless forms.

This printer is designed to meet 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-X03c can deliver broad forms flexibility, support for wide format printing, and the convenience of remote printer management when LAN-attached.

The Model X03c can have either one or two straight continuous-forms paper paths for outstanding paper-feeding reliability. One paper path is standard; 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.

Optional attachments include:

  • Parallel
  • Ethernet 10/100 local area network (LAN)
  • USB 2.0
  • Serial RS-232 9-pin

Print speed

Print speeds (in characters per second) of the 4247-X03c are up to:

  • 800 cps in DP mode at 10 characters per inch (cpi)
  • 400 cps in DP Text mode
  • 200 cps in NLQ mode

The print speed in lines per minute at 10 cpi and 6 lines per inch (lpi) is up to:

  • 403 lines per minute at 60 characters per line (6-in line length)
  • 248 lines per minute at 136 characters per line (13.6-in line length)

Heavy-duty, reliable printing

The 4247-X03c is a professional industrial heavy-duty printer with a workload capacity of up to 44,000 pages per month. The 18-wire print head delivers reliable printing on up to 8-part carbonless forms in DP, DP Text, NLQ, and OCR print modes.

Flexible forms handling

The CompuPrint 4247 Printer allows exceptional forms-handling flexibility. The base printer includes one continuous-forms tractor path; a second continuous-forms front tractor paper path is optional.

This dual front paper path capability can translate into a single printer performing 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.

Print quality comparison

Print modes include DP, DP text, NLQ, OCR-A, and OCR-B Print qualities on the 4247-X03c are equivalent in character size, shape, and resolution to the print qualities available on the previous 4247 printers.

The following table summarizes the print quality for DP, DP Text, and NLQ at 10 cpi:

Print Quality    Horizontal  Vertical  Horizontal  Vertical
dpi dpi Cell Size Cell Size
(Dots) (Dots)
-------------- ---------- -------- -------- --------

DP 60 72 12 9

DP Text 100 72 20 9

NLQ 100 144 20 18

Operator panel

The 4247-X03c includes a redesigned, improved operator panel. It enables access to many of the printer's functions including paper path selection, paper loading and parking, and the printer configuration.

The operator panel includes:

  • A 2-line by 24-character LCD display
  • Fourteen push buttons
  • Three status indicators
  • An audible alarm
  • Messages that can be displayed in English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Swedish, Norwegian, Brazilian-Portuguese, and Polish

When the printer is LAN-attached, the operator panel display can be viewed from any Web browser and remotely controlled by the Remote Printer Management Utility (RPMU) Virtual Operator Panel.

Printer data stream emulations

In addition to native 4247 mode, the following emulations are supported for easy replacement of many older printers.

Emulation modes to easily replace many older printers include:

  • ASCII emulation for the IBM Proprinter III XL, IBM 2381 Personal Printer, and Epson FX printers
  • IPDS emulation for the IBM 4224 and 4230 printers

Parallel, serial, USB, and Ethernet attachments

Printers emulated include the:

  • Proprinter III XL
  • IBM 2381 Personal Printer
  • Epson FX80 - 1170

Data streams supported are IBM PPDS and Epson FX.

IPDS is supported only by the Ethernet attachment.

Existing 4247 Model 003 RPQs

No existing 4247 RPQ currently available for the 4247 Models 003 is presently available for the Model X03c. Submit RPQ requests if an RPQ is needed.

Optional features

Bulk order for optional features

Since the 4247-X03c 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-X03c MES features.

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