Dataproducts Announces New Wide Format Continuous Feed Laser Printer; The LZR 5200 Offers Versatile Support for Mid-Range Printing Applications.

SIMI VALLEY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 9, 1998--Dataproducts Corporation today announced the LZR 5200 continuous feed laser printer.

Robust and cost-effective, this printer offers reliable printing at speeds to 33 pages per minute and a monthly duty cycle of 150,000 pages. Boasting a revolutionary paper handling system which allows two fanfold paper inputs, this printer breezes through all sizes of labels and paper stock.

The LZR 5200 is a new and unique type of printer which is designed for wide format applications at mid-range printing speeds. With a wide web print format, the LZR5200 handles up to a 17 inch wide document and offers a full 16 inch print line, ideal for specialized label printing and line printer applications. The LZR 5200 offers state of the art electrophotographic technology with major enhancements in wide format imaging. In addition, the LZR 5200 delivers 300 dpi, PCL5e emulation and a 32 bit processor creating a printer with power and flexibility that easily fits into existing line printer or industrial graphics environments. This printer is feature packed with reversing, dual tractor-fed input paths and integrated cutting technology. Offering paper paths with built in tracking and reversal ensures document registration is maintained, eliminating the cost of wasted forms. The LZR 5200 has a unique multi-temperature fusing system which allows printing compatibility with most types of media.

The paper handling features include two fanfold paper inputs which can be accessed alternatively via software control. Users will find this dual paper input feature convenient for handling both standard paper stock and custom label applications. According to Ron White, Business Development Manager for the Americas Printer Division, "This feature promotes unattended printing operation by allowing users to remotely select the appropriate print media via a software program; reducing the need for operator intervention when changing paper or label stock."

A significant feature of the LZR 5200 is the integrated cutting device which can cut the fanfold stock while printing. What this means is the LZR 5200 can separate print jobs and cut the stock into individual sheets without stopping the print process which inevitably boosts productivity. This robust feature is perfect for batch-mode printing and all print on demand applications.

Complimenting the robust paper handling features of the LZR5200 is an intelligent paper stacker. This device ensures a reliable, dynamic print and stack operation from the very first page onwards. The printer and stacker are perfectly integrated to ensure flawless print job completion for even the most challenging applications.

The LZR 5200 offers professional printing to end-users in all major system environments and networks. A personality module for parallel connection is available and additional interfaces for Ethernet, IBM coax, twinax, SCS/IPDS and IGP will be available.

This printer's sleek modern design is user-friendly and offers an easy to operate user interface as well as low-cost, easy to replace consumables.

The LZR 5200 is currently available with a street price of $22,995. This product is available exclusively through authorized Dataproducts channel partners.
