High performance serial printers with exceptional paper handling

High performance serial printers
with exceptional paper handling
When busy work environments demand
a top performer, the 3811 delivers.
A Heavy Duty Designed Printer.
Designed for heavy duty requirements, the 3811
serial matrix printer delivers outstanding performance at speeds up to 1100 CPS. Designed for
the general data processing market, this new
model is an extension of GENICOM's well-known
3800 serial printer family.
These printers require no preventive maintenance and have
high MTBF ratings of up to 10,000 hours. The bottom line?
Less downtime which means your work is done on schedule.
. . . And It’s Easy To Connect.
The 3811 offers an externally accessible plugable I/O slot for
optional connectivity, such as 10/100 ethernet, and IBM TX/
CX, providing flexible system connectivity.
Simplicity Meets Advanced Technology.
The simplicity of design incorporates advanced print
head technology, with a head life of two (2) times
that of other products. Dual paper path with
optional second tractors make light work of even your
largest print runs. The advanced paper handling,
two forms loaded up to 1+7-part, and resident
barcode fonts make it the ideal choice for multiplepart form printing on both the manufacturing floor
and in warehouse applications. Other markets include
healthcare, retail, and transportation with mid to highend application printing needs.
Features That Save You Time . . .
The GENICOM 3811 printer can do your missioncritical printing using several timesaving features,
including automatic forms-thickness sensing and
adjustment, automatic paper park, and automatic top
of form.
And zero-inch tear-off reduces paper waste and decreases
paper cost.
