Kodak Ektaplus 7008 Extends Electrophotographic Line

Eastman Kodak Company has introduced the Kodak Ektaplus 7008 printer, an eight page-per-minute (ppm) desktop laser printer for IBM PCs and compatibles. The Ektaplus 7008 extends Kodak's line of electrophotographic printers, including the recently introduced Ektaplus 7016 multifunction networkable printer.

Fully featured out-of-the-box with no hidden costs or upgrades, the Ektaplus 7008 is a high-performance, high-quality printer for standalone users or workgroups that share peripherals. The standard configuration boasts 1.5 MBytes of RAM, a feature that enables it to efficiently handle text, graphics or a combination of both. In addition, it offers 300 x 300 dots per inch (dpi) resolution and high monthly duty cycles that will easily support multiple users.

Powered by a Motorola 12-MHz (megahertz) 68000 microprocessor, the Ektaplus 7008 print controller offers fast page composition for text, graphics and combined documents. With a standard configuration including 1.5 MBytes of RAM--expandable to 2.5 MBytes--the controller effectively handles the most complex documents, as well as job spooling and downloadable fonts.

The non-impact print engine uses an electrophotographic process and features 8 ppm performance and monthly duty cycles of up to 5,000 pages at 300 x 300 dpi. With an RS-232C/422 serial interface and a Centronics Parallel interface, plus Hewlett-Packard Laser-Jet PCL IV and HPGL plotter emulations, the printer can operate in virtually any MS-DOS computing environment.

Flexible paper handling capabilities include a 200-sheet variable-sized paper tray for legal, letter and A4 paper sizes. The printer accepts 16 to 34 lb. bond paper. Output options include: labels and heavy stocks; envelopes; and portrait, landscape and intermixed printing.

The 16-character LCD control panel displays easy-to-understand messages in five languages (English, French, German, Spanish and Italian), eliminating the confusing codes typically used on other printers. Fourteen resident fonts come standard with the Ektaplus 7008. The printer also has two slots that accept HP-compatible font cartridges, and the ability to accept downloadable fonts.
