PrintNet Plus is a combination of Decision Data hardware and software
components that offers a truly advanced is management solution for
networked 6600 series.
Printnet Plus Interface Card
The PrintNet interface card provides the connection to an Ethernet local
area network. It has a built-in printer home page that is accessible by a
standard Internet browser, like Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet
Explorer. This integrated printer option provides fingertip status
information and network control of your 6600 series printer.
6600 Series Print Manager
The 6600 series printer manager is a Java-based software application that
takes the PrintNet card to a higher level of printer management, providing
screens with familiar point-and-click and drag-and-drop operations, along
with popup windows. The printer manager provides advanced configuration
management tools such as:
6600 series Database
Virtual Control Panel
6600 series Status and
Software File Downloads
Broadcast and Single
With the printer manager, you
can completely manage the configurations of all worldwide networked 6600
series printers -- with point-and-click ease -- from your desktop PC or
workstation. You can easily upload any of eight configurations from any
6600 series printer, edit them, and download them back to the printer.
This allows quick and accurate control of all your 6600 series printer
6600 Series Windows Driver
The 6600 Series Windows Driver prints Windows applications with ease. It
has a unique, optimized design that efficiently handles a variety of bar
code symbologies, graphics, and text in a single driver.
Auto Port Switching
AutoPort switching automatically switches between coax/Twinax, parallel,
and serial ports, which may all be connected to a 6600 series printer at
the same time.
Optional Twinax/Coax Interface
The Optional Coax/Twinax Interface is configurable to emulate several IBM
3287, 5225 and 4234 models. Optional IPDS, IGP, PGL/VGL, Magnum, and Hawk
emulations are also available.
5th Generation Printer Technology
A new shuttle design with precision, three-dimensional (3D) hammers causes
deep hammertip penetration of the paper and assures high print quality
under varying temperature and form thickness. A new integral motor
improves shuttle response time and decreases vibration, translating into
more accurate dot placement and years of non-degradable print quality. But
that’s not all. Now, dots can be placed with registration as precise as
0.002 inch, an important consideration for many industrial graphics
applications where accuracy is of paramount importance. This new 3D design
maximizes impact energy for superior multi-part forms printing. Printing
with the new shuttle assembly is also quieter, especially with the 6605
and 6610 Floor cabinet models. They generate 52 dBA of acoustic noise,
which makes them suitable for operation in office environments.
PSA Makes A Powerful Difference
PSA makes a powerful difference. All 6600 series printers include a full
implementation of state-of-the-art Printer System Architecture (PSA™)
complete with a powerful 32-bit processor. Now, all 6600 Series printers
are unified by the PSA design concept. PSA allows all of our printing
technologies to work together with little or no application software
Emulations In A Flash
The standard emulation included with the printers is Printronix Line
Printer Plus™ which includes Printronix P Series, Epson FX 1050 and IBM
ProPrinter III XL. Optional emulations available include PGL/VGL, IPDS and
ANSI 3.64 Enhanced. These emulations are easily software upgradeable,
since they can be loaded into printer flash memory via a PC or through
Printronix printer manager.
Worry-Free Unattended Operation
Worry-free, unattended operation. For the ultimate in power printing, the
SureStak™ power stacker can be combined with the 1000 and 1500 lpm
models. This clever option gently folds, stacks and compresses output
paper automatically. With SureStak, you can count on worry-free,
unattended operation, even with thin or low quality paper.
