Epson FX-890 dot matrix printer 240 x 144 DPI 680 cps

The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
A dot matrix printer or impact matrix printer is a type of printer with a print head that prints by impact, striking an ink-soaked cloth ribbon against the paper, much like a typewriter. Unlike a typewriter, letters are drawn out of a dot matrix, consisting of needles, and thus varied fonts and arbitrary graphics can be produced. Because the printing is done by applying mechanical pressure, these printers can create carbon copies.
