High quality, high speed printing
for high volume jobs
The Decision Data 6815 and 6820 High Speed Band
no longer manufactured.
The Printronix P8000 Series is
the direct replacement for this line.
These are the printers designed to take charge of the paper intensive S/3X and AS/400
environment. The Decision Data 6815 and 6820 band printers combine high quality printing
with an exceptionally high speed-up to 2000 lines per minute-to produce everything from
high volume reports to multi-part invoices. Add a long list of additional high performance
features, and you have printers that make easy work of information processing to
effectively support sales, production, finance, marketing and more.

The 6815 and 6820 incorporate a straight paper path with a swing open gate that allows
you to change forms, character bands and ribbons easily and quickly. They feature flat
tractor feeds and a power paper puller to minimize misfeeds and paper jams. Plus, the
power paper stocker adjusts as it fills and is protected by sensors to alert you in the
unlikely event that a paper jam should occur.
What's more, both printers offer the flexibility of fully formed character sets for up
to 60 different bands-including foreign languages. Even handling continuous feed,
multi-part and oversized forms is a breeze with the 6815 and 6820.
And with their high duty cycle, these rugged performers are built to gi've you years of
reliable, trouble-free printing.
Perfect for DP center, the warehouse or the factory
The Decision Data 6815 and 6820 have many user-friendly features that make them ideal
for DP center, warehouse or manufacturing environments.
They include both a line counter and an hour meter for more accurate scheduling of
workload. Their automatic vacuum system operates continuously to minimize maintenance, or
can be used manually for periodic, routine cleaning.
The printers are fully enclosed for quiet operation so they can be placed in an office
environment. Each also includes electronic vertical paper alignment; a separate
large-forms input area; and a rear operator panel that allows for job interruptions
without long production halts.
Color coded, LCD-assisted operator panel means maximum
The 6815 and 6820 come complete with a unique digital display that lets you verify
every band, language and paper handling mode utilized so operator errors can be kept to a
minimum. In addition, there are eight, quick-entry command buttons which are color coded
to immediately identify frequent, secondary and special operation/test functions.
And finally, using a microprocessor based controller, the 6815 and 6820 have
self-diagnostic capabilities. Should a problem occur, error conditions are shown on a
32-character display and 5 LED indicators.
