|For the very best in dot matrix performance, look no further than the versatile and user-friendly Epson LQ-690, offering a winning combination of speed, reliability and ribbon yield.
Why the Epson LQ-690?
Designed with the dot matrix user in mind, our latest model has an impressive print speed of up to 529 cps. This flexible and compact printer can easily handle cut sheets, continuous paper, labels, envelopes and cards. It has a built-in Print Speed Enhancer to increase the speed of bit image printing, making it an ideal printer for those in the most demanding of work environments.
Print faster and more productively, thanks to the Print Speed Enhancer – a unique feature in the Epson driver. Perfect for those printing directly from any Windows ® applications. – Also, LQ-690 is capable of printing an impressive 529 cps (12 cpi) when using printer resident fonts.
|High ribbon yield
In a demanding and fast-moving work environment, a high ribbon yield is essential, and with 10 million characters per ribbon, this marks out the LQ-690 as a leading force in the flatbed market. It is also cost-effective with long ribbon replacement cycles, low running costs and total cost of ownership.
Durable and built to last, users will be assured by the MTBF (mean time between failures) of 20,000 power on hours, plus a print head life of 400 million strokes/wire. This results in greater productivity and less maintenance – essential when producing large amounts of documents and data.
This compact hard-working printer is designed to fit on your desk. The platen gap adjustment lever is thoughtfully hidden under the front cover, to avoid accidental setting changes and paper setting is made easy thanks to the ruler in the front paper guide.
