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.
EAN/UPC code :
European Article Number (EAN) and Universal Product Code (UPC) are better known as the barcode on a product's packaging to uniquely identify a product in a shop or logistic process. One product data-sheet can have multiple barcodes depending on logistic variations such as packaging or country.
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.

The faster, more reliable passbook printer

The Epson PLQ-20 adds speed and versatility to printing in the banking and public administration sectors. Built to last, it handles high volumes of passbooks, visas, tickets and other documents with ease. It’s also compact and connectable, with the flexibility to match your unique IT and space requirements.

Whether printing passbooks, passports, tickets or visas, you need a printer that is fast and reliable. The Epson PLQ-20 has what it takes to handle all your business requirements. It has a host of standard and optional features, and it is even available with a magnetic stripe reader/writer (Epson PLQ-20M).

Faster printing

The Epson PLQ-20 is fast and effective, with print speeds up to 480cps (10cpi), high paper throughput and the ability to handle passbooks up to 2.6mm thick. What’s more, convenient automatic sheet alignment and automatic print head adjustment features enable passbooks to be printed quickly and easily.

Performance and reliability

This impact printer is built to last, with a mean volume between failure (MVBF) of 7 million lines, a mean time between failure (MTBF) of 10,000 power on hours and a print head life of 400 million strokes/wire. And the ribbon will not need to be changed for a long time, thanks to a ribbon life of 5 million characters per ribbon.

Easy integration

The Epson PLQ-20 will fit seamlessly into your existing IT environment with its ESCP/P 2, IBM emulation and Olivetti PR2E default setting. It has standard Parallel, Serial and USB interfaces, and as an option you can also connect via USB to wired and wireless networks. Whatever your IT environment, Epson will endeavour to customise the Epson PLQ-20 to your specific requirements.

Space saving

The Epson PLQ-20 has a small footprint. It easily fits into offices with limited space. And with the optional space saving kit you can fit it in an even smaller area. It includes a top paper tray for storing forms and books neatly. Additionally a rear paper guide bends the paper safely after printing which saves space at the rear of the printer.
