TallyGenicom's mid range 2440/2540 serial matrix printers are designed for applications where fast throughput and
flexible paper management are vital.
Forms are easy to load as the paper is loaded either at the front or the rear of the printer. For precise paper control
and to enable feeding of continuous forms, the push tractor can also be used as a pull tractor.
Both printers feature an option for 9 or 24 pin print heads to support different print quality requirements suitable for
narrow and wide format printing. All printers support graphics and barcodes systems.
With auto switching USB, parallel interfaces as standard and an optional Ethernet or serial interface, these new dot
matrix printers offer a cost effective solution.
With high print speeds of up to 576 characters per second (cps) and the ability to handle different types of print
media, including labels, invoices, reports and multi part forms, they are well suited for back office applications,
including retail, local government, healthcare, warehousing and distribution.
