RUGGED, COST EFFECTIVE AND VERSATILE
The P7000 offers unsurpassed reliability. When your
application cannot be interrupted, look to the P7000
for maximum productivity.
For cost control, this technology provides the edge needed,
giving you the lowest cost per page output.
It handles specialized forms that work for your
application – forms that can only be printed on a
line matrix printer – information reports, multi-part
transaction documents and bar code labels.
ENHANCED RELIABILITY
P7000 FAMILY INTRODUCES
• Enhanced reliability – provides more up time and
lower operating costs
• Ultra capacity ribbons – delivers darker image,
lasts longer, and costs less
• Integrated print management system – provides precise
control over print quality, print costs, and job planning
• Redesigned pedestal – improves user access and forms
handling flexibility
• Increased ease of use – simplifies operation and
enhances productivity
No other print technology delivers more trouble free
high volume printing than a Printronix line matrix printer.
Every generation of our printers has delivered higher
quality and more reliability than its predecessor.
Now the P7000 family, with a wide range of design
enhancements, carries the tradition forward delivering
the most reliable Printronix printer ever. The result is
more uptime, more mission critical dependability, and
lower service and operating costs.

ULTRA CAPACITY RIBBONS*
P7000
P5000
New formulation and larger capacity spool
delivers higher performance and lower cost
Leadership by design also extends to our consumables.
Customers turn to line matrix to get the lowest cost printing
of any technology. Typically 10 times less expensive than laser
or serial matrix, Printronix line matrix delivers significant cost
savings in all high volume applications. To extend this benefit
even further, Printronix has made significant investments in the
design and testing of new fabrics, ink formulations, and
ribbon construction. The highlight of these investments
is a totally new ribbon that is at the heart of the P7000
family. Suitable for both text and bar code applications,
the new P7000 Ultra Capacity ribbon starts 20% darker
and lasts 3X longer than our most popular 30 million character
ribbons. With a 90 million character rated life, the number of
user interventions are dramatically reduced. In addition to the
labor savings from reduced consumable handling, the efficiency
of this new design results in an even lower cost per page.
INTEGRATED PRINT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
This system is designed to constantly monitor print
quality - eliminating waste, maximizing ribbon life and
reducing printing costs. Printronix has built in the intelligence
and auto-sensing capabilities that provide visibility
and control without any user set-up.
This allows the system administrator to have precise control
over print quality, consumable costs, and job planning. Add
in PrintNet® Enterprise and the visibility and control, along
with instant e-mail alerts, comes right to your desktop - ideal
for enterprise management of printing applications.

IMPROVED PEDESTAL DESIGN
The pedestal model has been completely redesigned
for the P7000 line.
• The all new clamshell design allows easy access to
all controls, providing faster ribbon replacements and
easier paper loading
• Interior room has been expanded to accommodate the
P7000 Ultra Capacity ribbons, creating a 3X increase
in ribbon capacity over previous pedestal models
• Standard oversized casters make movement easier

than ever
• Versatility has also been enhanced with the ability
for the paper path to be configured for either top or
rear exit
• Using the top paper exit along with newly refined
eject key functionality this printer is ideal for short
print runs and easy access to output
ENCLOSED CABINET
The enclosed cabinet models provide for near silent
operation, making these printers perfectly suitable for
use in the quietest of office environments. In addition,
these models provide the best paper handling for large
print runs. All input paper is sealed inside and protected
from bumping and contamination. Even more importantly,
an elegantly simple, but highly effective combination
of moveable fences and chains allows for neat
stacking all the way up to a full box of paper.
For tougher forms that tend not to refold well,
a SureStak power stacker option is available for the
enclosed cabinet models. With this option, even
the toughest forms can be printed and stacked
neatly up to a full box. So, in either configuration,
the enclosed cabinet models are your best choice for
large unattended production printing applications.

INCREASED EASE OF USE
In creating the next generation of line printers, customer
feedback was used to identify enhancements that would
simplify operation, enhance the user experience and
boost productivity.
• The ribbon spool and hub have been redesigned to
be fully self aligning and to snap on and off with ease
• All user adjustment and control points are blue for
fast operator identification
• The control panel is color coded, with faster reacting keys
• A Quick Setup menu simplifies and groups the most
common setup parameters into one easily modified section
• Automatic configuration saving prevents settings from
accidentally being lost or reset
• A new platen gap adjustment system separates the
functions of opening/closing the platen and setting the
gap. Now, the gap is set by a knob to match the form’s
characteristics, and once set, the platen can be opened
and closed without affecting the gap setting, simplifying
the loading of ribbons and forms

ASSET PROTECTION
ETHERNET WITH JOB CONTROL
Today’s IT environment is changing faster than ever and
it is impossible to tell what is going to be required of your
IT assets in the future. This is why a new PSA®3 controller
with expanded memory and capabilities was developed
especially for the P7000. Just as the P5000 was able to
grow with a changing IT environment for nine fast-paced
years, the P7000’s new PSA3 controller provides all the
base foundation and necessary room to grow with the
next generation of changes. So, whether your needs
evolve to new data streams or expanded wireless options,
your investment will be protected with the P7000.
There is a large installed base of coax and twinax
connected line printers. Traditionally, migrating away
from Twinax or coax to Ethernet eliminated the costly
and inflexible infrastructure, but also eliminated the
valuable job control. Now, with TN3270, TN5250, or
the latest IPDS, the choice between cost/flexibility and
control is eliminated. Using these new options, you can
migrate to Ethernet printing and still maintain all the
job control these mission critical applications require.
CONNECTIVITY AND COMPATIBILITY
The P7000 provides the most connectivity and emulation
options available on any impact printer. Mix and match
between wired Ethernet, wireless Ethernet, parallel,
serial, Coax and Twinax. Couple this flexibility with
automatic port switching and you can easily connect your
new line matrix printer to multiple systems. Often this
is an ideal solution for environments migrating between
hosts. Available emulations include P-Series, PGL, VGL
(Code-V), DEC LG, PCL 2, ANSI, IPDS, CT, and the most
common serial matrix languages. What is most important
about all of these emulations and connectivity options is
seamless compatibility. By design and through rigorous
testing, the P7000 is able to seamlessly replace any
previous Printronix line matrix printer and
virtually any competing legacy impact product.
FLEXIBLE AND ADAPTABLE
Understanding that often a simple modification
to the application is just not possible, all P7000 printers
come standard with the ability to intercept and modify a
data stream before printing. Any changes can be corrected
or modified to create the desired output without any
costly host application modification.
PRINTNET ENTERPRISE
Successful organizations are flexible enough to meet
new requirements in a changing marketplace. PrintNet
Enterprise provides this flexibility by placing total control
of worldwide print operations in your IT network manager’s
hands. By combining a fully
integrated Ethernet adapter and
Java-based remote management
software, this remote printer
management tool provides:
