standard dot matrix printer control language, worldwide.
Adopted in the vast majority of popular software packages,
ESC/P enables you to plug straight in – and print. The
versatility and quality of Epson impact printing is further
extended by ESC/P2 which enables Epson 24-pin printers
to achieve scalable fonts and high resolution graphics.
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.
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.

OPTIONS AND ACCESSORIES
TYPICAL PAPER PATHS
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 the Epson
LQ-2090. Equipped with productivity enhancing,
independent motor drives, these feeders reduce paper
handling time and ensure optimum paper throughput.
18
CUT SHEET FEEDERS
Offering 50, 150 and 250 sheet, for automatic selection
of forms and plain stationery.
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.
