rix printer designed to offer reliability, economy
and ease of operation to users of small business

a two million line towel ribbon that is quickly and easily
changed. Extra long ribbon life means less frequent changes
and lower consummables costs. A swing gate allows easy
forms loading and alignment. In addition a forms weight
adjustment optimizes print quality.
The E Series modular architecture features 80% parts
commonality thus reducing spare parts to provide econo-
mical service and training. Designed to meet international
standards and featuring a universal power supply and
international character sets the Centronics E Series is truly
a worldwide product.

It's true. Our new PagePrinter 8laser
printer has a lifespan of 300,000 pages.
Now if you take the purchase price and
divide it by the page life, what do you get?
For PagePrinter 8, it's 0.8 cents a page. For
LaserJet, it's 3.0 cents a page. Our cost per
page on consumables is much less too. As
you can see from the chart, it all works out
to a savings of 2. 7 cents per page. At
300,000 pages, that's more than $8,000
over the life of the printer.
More cost effective operation is just one
of the great features we've built into our
new laser printer. There's lots more. Like
multiple resident printer emulations.
Like a heavier duty cycle (2,000 more
pages per month than Laser Jet) , your
choice of RS232, Centronics Parallel , or
IEEE 488 interfaces, and interchangeable
font cards. And our starter kit is included
