Discover the World of Colour!
The infotec IPC 2838 colour laser printer has four toner drums
- one for each process colour. Thanks to a special black toner,
solid black areas are reproduced with total precision.
Fast colour printing in the office
The principle of the infotec IPC 2838 is quite
simple: it is powerful, productive and very
cost effective.
At 28 full-colour and 38 B/W pages per
minute, it is currently the fastest colour
laser printer for the office environment.
Genuine 1200 dpi resolution and printing
on formats up to A3+ (305 x 457mm)
round off the impressive features of the
infotec IPC 2838.
The IPC 2838 is fitted as standard with a
parallel bi-Centronics and an Ethernet
interface, making it fully network-ready
and straightforward to install.
The infotec IPC 2838 produces
high-precision colour prints
and meets all the requirements
of a busy office enviroment.
The compact design, high
print speed in colour and
B/W, combined with easy
operation, make the
infotec IPC 2838 an ideal
printer for workgroups
and departments.
PCL5c, RPCS and PS 3 guarantee perfect
communication with almost every
operating system. RPCS (Refined Printing
Command Stream) greatly simplifies the
set-up procedure within the printer driver,
and allows the user to save settings to use
The optional FireWire interface gives you
the opportunity to set up a separate and
extremely fast direct print
Simply a work of genius
Owing to the new sloping configuration, the
4 drums in the infotec IPC 2838 form a straight
paper path in the smallest possible space.
As well as providing remarkably compact
dimensions, they also guarantee high output
Full network support
Universal interfaces allow various applications
to sit side-by-side, regardless of platform:
Fitted as standard with an Ethernet
10/100-baseT network card and
a bi-directional parallel interface.
Easy connection to all standard
networks or to a standalone PC.
Optional interfaces: IEEE 1394 FireWire or
USB2.0 or Wireless LAN IEEE802.11b or
Bluetooth. (WirelessLan, FireWire, Bluetooth and USB
With parallel bi-Centronics or Ethernet interfaces as standard, the
IPC 2838 can be integrated into almost any standard network as
a central colour and B/W laser printer.
Auto Calibration (automatic colour
calibration) guarantees consistently
bright and accurate colours from every
application for the office environment.
If an optional 20 or 40 GB hard disk is
installed, the possibilities include proof
prints and password-protected printouts.
cannot be installed together.)
PCL5c to quickly print out normal documents.
Support for standard network protocols
such as TCP/IP, IPX/SPX and AppleTalk.
Adobe PostScript 3 for precision output of
PostScript colour and DTP files.
Best print results under
Windows 95/98; NT 4.0; Win 2000; Me, XP,
Apple Mac from OS 7.6.1.
Profiles: ICM-Windows;
SWOP, HP-Coated
Thanks to support for Unix environments,
Sun Microsystems Solaris 7, Sun OS 4.1.x
and Red Hat 6.2, the infotec IP 2838 is also
suitable for technical and scientific fields,
in addition to its use in normal office
The utility software: "SmartNetMonitor for
Admin/Client" lets you manage all printers
connected to the LAN.
Higher speeds and greater ease of use
are provided by RPCS (Refined Printing
Command Stream). In almost all
applications running under Windows,
it achieves higher print speed in
comparison with other page processing
languages. Thanks to the unique driver
interface, standard print jobs can be
launched without a complicated
set-up procedure, by simply clicking
on pre-defined icons. In addition,
RPCS lets you save various printer
settings for different print jobs under
one user-defined icon.
In addition, the IPC 2838 offers a 2,000-sheet
sorter/stapler, a 4-tray mailbox, a punch
unit with 2 or 4-hole punching, and a
flexible paper capacity of up to 3,100 sheets.
The infotec IPC 2838:
high-quality colour and B/W prints
+ high speed
+ ease of use
+ low cost
= the Office Printing Revolution
Always the right language
In today's networked world of business, output
systems that support several page description
languages are needed. What's more, the
infotec IPC 2838 sets new standards in terms of
ease of use and speed.
RPCS (Refined Printing
Command Stream)
guarantees easy-touse driver settings.
Pre-defined icons
allow complete
printer driver settings
to be opened with
a simple click.
