The 2365 MC and 2380 printers are rugged and powerful high speed matrix printers for heavy duty operation under the most extreme conditions. Reliable, heavy workload output is guaranteed for many years following printer purchase. The print is crisp, sharp, dark and absolutely legible, thanks to the 24 pin print head.

Low running costs and durability in the harshest of print environments make these products excellent value for money.

Fully automated operation, coupled with the 'straight through' paper path, allows ease of use and virtually eliminates errors caused by user intervention.

These products are well matched to Microsoft Windows applications, and highly compatible with other host operation environments including legacy systems.
