Printheads you can replace yourself eliminate the down-time and expense of a service call. And fully-automatic printhead testing and maintenance systems eliminate time-consuming daily manual maintenance. Get high performance with HP Double Swath technology The HP Designjet L25500 uses pairs of staggered printheads in HP Double Swath Technology for a wide (1.7 inch/43.2 mm) print swath and higher throughput. To eliminate swath-to-swath banding, the print swaths overlap each other and nozzles printing in the same scan line (top and bottom printheads) are used together. Achieve quality and consistency with the Optical Media Advance Sensor and Optical Drop Detector Featuring sophisticated media advance controls and automatic nozzle testing, this printer is designed to produce defect-free prints that help you avoid ink and media waste. The HP Optical Media Advance Sensor (OMAS) controls the media as it advances through the printer to minimize banding at high speeds. The Optical Drop Detector (ODD) automatically tests the drop ejection performance of every printhead nozzle to produce prints free of defects. manage Proactively your print jobs with the Embedded Web server Accessible using your preferred web browser, the embedded Web server allows you to control print settings and monitor your printer’s use of ink and media. Gain tighter control over your print jobs and prevent unnecessary ink and media waste.

Download this and other manuals from: www.hp.com/go/L25500/manuals 1) The HP Designjet L25500 Printer produces an extremely broad range of both outdoor and indoor applications from a single device, which surpasses the number of different applications that traditional eco-solvent printers or water-based printers can produce. 2) HP image permanence and scratch, smudge, and water resistance estimates by HP Image Permanence Lab. Outdoor display permanence tested according to SAE J2527 using HP Latex, low-solvent, and eco-solvent inks on a range of media, including HP media; in a vertical display orientation in simulated nominal outdoor display conditions for select high and low climates, including exposure to direct sunlight and water; performance may vary as environmental conditions change. Scratch, smudge, and water resistance tested using HP Latex, low-solvent, and eco-solvent inks on a wide range of media, including HP media; water resistance is comparable when printed on water-resistant substrates. Laminated display permanence for Latex/low-solvent comparison using Neschen Solvoprint Performance Clear 80 laminate; for Latex/eco-solvent comparison using GBC clear gloss 1.7 mil hot laminate. Results may vary based on specific media performance and scratch testing methodology. For more information, see www.hp.com/go/supplies/printpermanence. 3) For best results, print on polyester fabric that does not stretch. Performance may vary depending on media. Please consult your media supplier for compatibility details. 4) The HP printer is subject to the HP hardware warranty. 5) Some warranty limitations apply, see the HP Performance Warranty for HP Air Release Adhesive Gloss Cast Vinyl at www.hp.com/go/HPMediaWarranties. 6) Printers using HP Latex Inks use internal heaters to dry and cure the latex polymer film. Some substrates may have inherent odor. 7) HP PVC-free Wall Paper printed using HP Latex Inks is listed in the GREENGUARD product listing for low emitting products and is tested to the GREENGUARD Children & Schools standard. The print is neither GREENGUARD nor GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certified. The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute is an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) authorized standards developer that establishes acceptable indoor air standards for indoor products, environments, and buildings. See www.greenguard.org. 8) The Committee for Health-related Evaluation of Building Products, AgBB, establishes the fundamentals for a uniform and reproducible health-related evaluation of building products in Germany, including criteria for testing and an evaluation scheme for health-related evaluation of VOC emissions from building products used for application indoors. 9) Special ventilation is not required to meet US OSHA requirements on occupational exposure to VOCs from HP Latex Inks. Special ventilation equipment installation is at the discretion of the customer—no specific HP recommendation is intended. Customers should consult state and local requirements and regulations. 10) HP offers the HP Large-format Media take-back program in the U.S., Europe, and Canada (as of June 1, 2010), through which most HP recyclable signage media can be returned, availability varies. Some recyclable papers can be recycled through commonly available recycling programs. For details visit www.hp.com/recycle. Aside from this program, recycling opportunities for these products are currently only available in limited areas. Customers should consult local recycling resources for recycling these products. 11) In the circa 50 countries and territories in which the HP Planet Partners program operates. Program features and availability varies. Where this program is not available, and for other consumables not included in the program, consult the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) available at www.hp.com/go/ecodata to determine appropriate disposal. 12) Speed based on printing using full width (152.4 cm/60 in). Measured on an HP Designjet L25500 60-in Printer. 13) Recommended up to 30 m (100 ft).
