Epson DFX-8500
In their paper handling versatility, Epson dot matrix
printers really excel. Advanced models offer paper
feeding from up to six paper sources*, and enable up
to four types of stationery to be held ‘on call’. What’s
more, when space is at a premium, multi-path paper
feed gives you flexibility to position your printer
without compromising its functionality.
Optional equipment
A comprehensive range of Epson paper
handling options includes:
Typical Paper Paths
Flat

• Cut sheet manual feed front in –

• Optional 150 sheet cut sheet feeder
• Optional 50 sheet cut sheet feeder
• Tractor fed continuous
Cut sheet feeders
Tractor unit
• Three continuous paper paths – front, rear,
and bottom
• Two cut sheet paper paths – front

Cut sheet feeders
Offering 50, 150 and 250 sheet, for
automatic selection of forms and plain
stationery.
Motorised sheet feeders
For high volume cut sheet printing,
optional motorised cut sheet feeders are
available for selected products, like the
150 sheet cut sheet feeder for Epson
LQ-2180. Equipped with productivity
enhancing, independent motor drives,
these feeders reduce paper handling time
and ensure optimum paper throughput.
Paper feed tractors
A choice of push, pull, and push/pull
combined tractors not only enable more
than one stationery type to be
permanently loaded for delivery on
demand, but handle continuous and
multi-part stationery more efficiently.
Roll paper holder
This provides an inexpensive alternative
to using continuous roll paper for
applications requiring variable paper
lengths.
*Using Epson paper handling options
Fully compatible with existing software,
ESC/P2 is designed for use with non
Windows® operating systems, enabling
you to achieve font manipulation without
the need for costly on-board processors.
If you are working within the Windows®
environment you will be able to achieve
your printer’s maximum speed by using
printer resident fonts.
Connectivity
Epson connectivity goes far beyond USB,
parallel and serial interfaces. Where
Epson impact printers are required to
serve either as a shared resource or as a
personal printer within IBM or mainframe
environments, we offer Ethernet, Wireless
802.11b, Twinax, Coax and LocalTalk
interfaces.
Epson fabric ribbons are highly durable
and hold an exact charge of ink to ensure
clear characters with no splattering. To
minimise printhead wear, Epson ink
includes lubricating oils.
For full details of interfacing options
please refer to the options and
specifications tables at the back of this
brochure.
Colour printing
Colour printing highlights important
information and gives clarity to forms.
Epson colour ribbons are ultra tough and
produce colourful results without bleed or
smudging. An easily installed colour
upgrade is available for selected printers.
For full details of printing options please
refer to the options and specifications
tables at the back of this brochure.
Epson supplies
Your Epson dot matrix printer demands
Epson ribbons for high performance.

everyday use, Epson ribbons come in

applications where space is limited. But also as a printer
