The adoption of the latest
technology has enabled
General Code® to produce
this new model, efficient
and tireless, characterized
by a robust metal construction and an unequalled quality/price ratio.
After the huge success of
ALFA 2050 and ALFA
2100General Code® wanted this new model, which
contains all the advantages of the previous
models and is obviously
fully compatible plus the
added value of autonomy,
new power and the latest
technology. The result is a
highly flexible and reliable
machine, able to face
every type of work load
without strain and to print
24 hours a day without the need for forced cooling (with the exception of particularly hot environments).
Thanks to the adoption of new faster microprocessors and to particular technology developed from experience over the years, the processing speed has been
tripled in order to enable the most complex printing and a more powerful graphic support.
Furthermore, the printing speed can be precisely adjusted to suit your needs,
from 20mm/s up to 250 mm/s to always obtain the best results. Its flexibility is
unrivalled: the impression energy, at the absolute top of the market, is such to
enable high-quality printing on a wide range of materials, which would otherwise be difficult to print: stick-on labels, paper, cardboard, Triplex, Mylar, Tyre, PVC,
PE, PET, OPP, PP, TYVEK, KAPTON, textile fibres, etc.
Furthermore, highly resistant ribbon can be used (resistant to wear and tear,
high temperatures, solvents, washing and even some acids).
The model foresees both transparent and black-mark sensors, equipped with a
self-calibration system that facilitates the use of unusual materials. With the KIT
SR the ALFA 2200 SN is also equipped with an automatic stripper, a grip sensor for
the automatic distribution of labels and an internal rewinder for rolls of printed
material. The ribbon range is over 450 meters, while the ALFA 2200 SN with the
KIT SR holds rolls of paper up to 150 mm Ø and the ALFA 2200 SN up to 200mm Ø.
In both cases external fan-fold feeding is possible.
Graphic performance includes printing bar codes, even two-dimensional ones,
graphic images (can be saved in the machine) and fonts scaled to your pleasure
with high precision from 1 mm up to over 120 mm in height. Furthermore, the
entire firmware of the printer is in FLASH ROM, making it easy to update with
future developments directly by the client.
The ALFA 2200 SN is easy to connect: the serial RS-232, the parallel Centronics and
the USB port are on board, furthermore they are provided with the drivers for
Windows 3.x, 95/98 and NT 4.0,XP,2000.
Thanks to a specially designed set of controls entirely made up of text characters, it is very easy to carry out the direct control on the printer (even from IBM
36, 38, AS400, UNIX systems and others).
Among the accessories are the external rewinder and memory expansion.

Internal Ethernet Card
To connect the printer to Ethernet network by means of RJ-45 port with the protocols:
- IPX/SPX (Novell Netware 3.x, 4.x)
- TCP/IP (UNIX lpr/lpd, Windows NT)
- NetBEUI (Windows NT, Windows 95, Windows for Workgroups, Microsoft LAN manager, IBM LAN server)
- Appletalk (MacOS EtherTalk).
Design and label printing program (Windows®)
This new program enables the complete management of every possible printer function by means of the
considerable advantages offered by Windows® graphics (what you see is exactly what will be printed).
The following can be done very simply: use of fonts with relative scaling, inclination and inverted printing; entry
in fixed and variable text fields with input from the keyboard, or automatic counters; tracing lines and boxes
that can be used as the background for texts; bar codes with fixed or variable content; importing redimensionable
graphic files from the program itself. It is also possible to build text fields and bar codes consisting of a
combination of others.
