Dascom 2820

The Dascom 2820 printer is meticulously designed for peak performance. Dascom’s fastest matrix forms printer offers exceptional print speeds, throughput, and workload capability for heavy operation in demanding environments.

Dual friction paper handling means forms are easy to feed and print, while a metal tear bar limits the chance of wasted forms.

The printer is designed for automated operation so user intervention is minimized, and menu settings can even be saved via the USB host interface or new firmware can be uploaded easily.

A backlit display means all information can be read easily. The browser-based Tally Dascom Web Panel is then available for network management.

Equipped with an Ethernet interface with IPv6 support and a USB interface as standard, the printer can also be upgraded with serial/parallel or a coax interface thus making it flexible and easy to integrate into many systems.
