SP200 Series Dot Matrix Printers
The SP200 Series are high-speed printers with built-in Verifone 200 emulation, which are ideal for credit
authorization terminals (CAT) and data logging systems. The optional CAT cover provides an ergonomic
receipt printer and CAT package. Models SP212 and SP242 print a single color (purple or black) and
models SP216 and SP246 print two colors (black/red) which is ideal for highlighting features on a receipt.
Standard features include small footprint, RS-232C interface via a DB25 connector, semi-automatic paper
loading and MCBF/reliability of 9 million lines. The integrated cash drawer driver helps maintain minimum
system cost. The built-in self-test function allows the user to check and reset dipswitch settings. The
printer utilizes popular 3" wide roll paper and can print an original plus two copies. The long life metal tear
bar provides accurate and reliable paper cutting. Models SP 242/246 feature a guillotine cutter with partial
and full cut capabilities.
