Epson LQ 50 Dot Matrix Printer
This ultra-compact printer is ideal for small shop counters and delivery vans, offering reliable operation with a low TCO.
  • The Epson LQ-50 fits almost anywhere thanks to its small dimensions, which measure just 275x240x153mm. This 24-pin, 50-column dot matrix printer takes 6-inch paper, and is ideal for locations where space is at a premium such as delivery vans and small shop counters. It is even suitable for dusty or dirty environments when used with the optional protective roll paper cover.

    Low TCO:
    To help keep running costs and maintenance time down, the LQ-50 has a ribbon yield of approximately 3 million characters, which can be extended using draft mode. The printer's mean time before failure is around 10,000 hours for years of trouble-free operation. Low power consumption qualified by ENERGY STAR further reduces the total cost of ownership.

    Hassle-free integration:
    For easy integration, parallel and USB connectivity is featured as standard.

    Efficient printing:
    The LQ-50 supports efficient continuous printing for media such as roll and fanfold paper. Customers won't be kept waiting with print speeds of up to 360cps.
