High Speed
The 24-pin wide carriage LQ-2190 boosts a high print speed of up to 480 cps (10 cpi) makes it an ideal solution for high volume applications.

Robust and Reliable
With MTBF (mean time between failure) of 20,000 power-on hours and a print head life of 400 million strokes per wire, this extremely robust printer is suitable for medium and large print volumes. Both features guarantee uninterrupted operation and less maintenance, in turn enhancing your productivity and reducing your total cost of ownership.

Versatile Connectivity
With a built-in USB, parallel interface and optional network print server, the LQ-2190 is engineered for versatile connectivity. What’s more, choice of front, rear and bottom paper paths gives you even more control over desk space management.

High Ribbon Yield
With a ribbon life of around 15 million characters, the ribbon replacement intervals are longer which in turn lower running costs and total cost of ownership.
