The T6100 and T6101 deliver flawless operation under adverse conditions. Inventors of line matrix printing, Tally has equipped these printers with flexible configurations that adapt to different commercial or industrial applications: open pedestal, enclosed pedestal or quietized cabinet, with distinct advantages in print quality, speed and functionality.

Superior print quality is achieved by a special impact element that creates a uniform, solid dot image. Font styles, character sizes and print attributes can be mixed on a single line, and Tally's exclusive Read/Right bar code algorithm creates sharp bar codes with no loss of throughput.

For maximum speed and throughput, a controller featuring "Page Segment Architecture" intelligently arranges data into segments prior to printing. Text and graphics print in just one pass with no forms reversal.

The T6100 and T6101 were designed to produce time sensitive, large volume critical business documents at very low cost. Critical applications such as high quality multi-part printing on invoices, reports, special labels, or bar coded media are ideal tasks for these products.

With the exceptional price/performance of the T6100 pedestal model and the 49 dB(A) quiet operation of the T6101, these printers are ready to meet the toughest challenges for business today, tomorrow and well into the next century.

Moreover, Tally's line matrix technology and long standing reputation within large commercial and industrial enterprises provides a solid foundation of reliability.
