Quiet, energy-efficient passbook printer from Epson

Khalil El-Dalu, General Manager, Epson Middle East

Epson Middle East launched the quiet, energy-efficient passbook printer  PLQ-22/22M which reduces power consumption and noise levels to offer banks, post offices and government institutions a very quiet printer with a low total cost of ownership.

Customers and staff alike will appreciate the PLQ-22/22M’s unobtrusive noise levels, which are as low as 51dBA. It’s efficient, too – the print speed enhancer enables fast printing of bit image data under Windows environments to help cut queues, while the high-accuracy MICR/MSRW head (M version) makes handling cheques and passbooks a smooth, trouble-free process.

Khalil El-Dalu, General Manager, Epson Middle East, said: “Financial and government institutions in the region can achieve substantial savings with the PLQ-22/22M. It is qualified by ENERGY STAR and has a very low standby power consumption of 4.5W. Moreover, to further reduce the total cost of ownership, it can print around 10 million characters in draft mode before the ribbon needs replacing.”

The PLQ-22/22M offers excellent passbook handling and data processing flexibility, thanks to its 128kb memory and capacity for passbooks up to 2.6mm thick. Simple to install, the PLQ-22/22M features a choice of emulations plus parallel, serial and USB interfaces as standard for an easy fit into most IT environments.
