“Unsurpassed excellence”. That defines the rugged high powered LA1000 printer. Built to leave a lasting impression on your productivity, this high speed workhorse exemplifies what rugged durability is all about. With its advanced 24-pin print head, the LA1000 is engineered to perform at a blistering pace even in the harshest of operating environments. You’re assured of top-shelf performance, crisp, clear and reliable print quality and a machine you can count on when your performance is what counts.

Low running costs and durability in the harshest of print environments make these products excellent value for money.

These products are well matched to Microsoft Windows applications, and highly compatible with other host operation environments including legacy systems.

DEC compatible printers continue to be in demand. These printers are particularly suited to DEC Servers, DEC VAX and Alpha, in VMS and OpenVMS operating environments. They compliment the mid-range LA-matrix printers, the LA2600 and LA2610. The products fully support the DEC ANSI PPL2 (Printer Protocol Level 2) command language (icluding barcodes), plus IBM Proprinter and Epson ESC P/2 for full system compatibility
