Speed To Get The Job Done. Fast.
When you have mountains of pages to print, nothing takes care of your workload like the GENICOM 5180 line matrix printer. With speeds up to a blistering 1,800 lines per minute, this workhorse makes short work of data processing, industrial graphics, multipart forms, mail labels, orders, and invoices.
Muscle To Back It Up.
GENICOM's legendary rugged design means you don't have to worry about downtime even in the harshest environments. Paper out, paper jams, and ribbon sensors allow you practically fail-safe and unattended printing. And the industry's only lifetime warranty on our shuttle mechanism provides peace of mind. Low-cost consumables, user-replaceable print heads, and maintenance-free operation keep cost of ownership low.
The Right Fit.
Choose from a wide variety of models. All models come standard with IEEE 1284 parallel and RS232/422 interfaces as well as IGP/QMS graphics languages. Two additional I/O slots are present in each unit, where optional, easily installed Ethernet, Token Ring and IBM twinax/coax connectivity solution cards may be added. These I/O slots provide for your current and future networking needs.
With hot port switching between all ports, flexible paper handling, and numerous choices in emulations, it's easy to find the right model for your application.
Protection For The Future.
The 5180 is among the first line printers to take advantage of GENICOM's newest Intelliprint controller architecture, which protects your investment by allowing fast, easy upgrades as your network connectivity requirements evolve. Pluggable I/O modules can be installed in a matter of minutes, and printer firmware flash ROM is updatable with each printer individually or via your network.
