Seikosha's new SP-2400 AI is a high speed printer designed to provide rapid response and versatility. As well as maximising throughput - performing at up to 300 cps (Super Speed Draft mode) - the bidirectional 9-pin printhead delivers excellent quality with a chice of 5 attractive type styles. Also, with its impact printing mechanism, the SP-2400 AI can handle multipart forms smoothly and efficiently. And when high volumes are called for, th optional cut-sheet-feeder (CSF) helps to further enhance productivity. Plus, two interfaces and two emulations ensure hardware/software compatibility. So whatever the challenge, Seikosha's SP-2400 AI is your perfect partner.

Paper parking

A great time-saver when switching from fanhold to letterhead. Another advantage of this push tractor design is the one-inch tear-off, which prevents paper waste.

User-friendly operation

All controls, including the power switch, are located on the front panel for convenience. Pitch and margin selection is carried out simply by moving the printhead to the position indicated on the top cover. A pull on the bail lever initiates autoloading.

Tailored output

Besides offering 5 NLQ fonts (Sans-serif, Courier, Prestige, Gothic,and Script), the SP-2400 AI provides a choice of Pica, Elite, condensed and proportional pitches - with or without justification. Character attributes include bold, italic, double-width, double-height, and underscore.


A choice of either EPSON® or IBM® emulations (selected by DIP switch) ensures compatibility with your applications software.

Built-in buffer

Enhancing performance is the 21-Kbyte print buffer (EPSON emulation). Also, up to 256 characters can be downloaded.

Centronics parallel and RS-232C serial interfaces

Both interfaces are standard, and the connectors are recessed to prevent the printer cable from obstructing the paper supply.

Two-way loading

Paper can be either tractor- or friction-fed. An automatic cut-sheet feeder is available as an option.
