Tally Dascom T2280+ Matrix Printer



Up to 1000 cps


The T2265+ and T2280+ are undoubtedly at the pinnacle of serial impact printing, representing the peak of performance in their respective speed segments. They are not just 'sprinters'; reliable, heavy workload output is guaranteed for the many years following their purchase. The print is crisp, sharp, dark and absolutely legible, thanks to the 24 pin print head.

Fully automatic operation instills operator confidence and virtually eliminates errors caused by poor user intervention. Front feed provides all the benefits of easy forms installation, coupled with reliable paper transport.

The products are well matched to Microsoft Windows applications, and entirely suited to other host operating environments, including legacy systems.

The T2265+ and T2280+ printers are the first high speed matrix printers to incorporate Ethernet on-board.
