24-pin wide-carriage dot matrix printer

Pride in performance

Rapid technological progress is the hallmark of today's computer industry, and a perfect example is provided by impact printing. Offering convenience, speed and versatility, dot matrix printers have gone from strength to strength - and Seikosha's new SL-150 continues this fine tradition. With its 24-pin printhead and selection of 9 resident fonts, you are assured of crisply impressive output. And unlike non-impact technologies, you can print in duplicate or triplicate using multipart forms of virtually any size. Yet there is no compromise on speed: the SL-150 can hum through heavy workloads at up to 240 cps. A high speed skip function, advanced media handling, and an optional cut-sheet feeder (CSF) all help to maximize office productivity. You can count on Seikosha's SL-150 to make light work of hard.

Letter-quality output

With the versatile SL-150 you are not limited to "one-size-fits-all" Courier 10. To get the message across, dress up your documents with a choice of 8 other built-in fonts: Gothic 12, Orator, Prestige Elite, Script, OCR-A, OCR-B, S.Roman and SH. In addition, the printer's memory is sufficient to hold up to 128 downloadable characters.

Quiet mode

The SL-150 produces high-quality hard copy with just a single pass of it's 24-pin printhead. However, a double-pass quiet mode is also available.

Responsive media handling

A pull on the bail lever initiates autoloading and everything else is smooth sailing. For example, two-way loading is a great time-saver: paper can be either tractor - or friction-fed. The push tractor enables paper parking, so switching media is fast and simple. And with the optional CSF installed, letterhead is almost as fast as fanfold.

High- speed skip

To accelerate the printing of charts and tables, the SL-150's smart printhead leaps over spaces.

Intelligent paper-out sensor

If the paper runs out, the SL-150 stops printing automatically and a warning indicator lights.

Software compatibility

Thanks to EPSON LQ-1050 emulation, you can be sure that the SL-150 is fully compatible with your applications software.

Hardware compatibility

A Centronics parallel interface - with recessed connector for space-saving convenience - is standard.
