Second generation SureColor-T series with expanded operational flexibility
SYDNEY, 5 August 2014 – Epson today launched its new range of large format SureColor® T Series printers for CAD, GIS, POS, business and design. The T Series, already known for its exceptional reliability with low running costs, has been enhanced in several key areas and now boasts superior imaging thanks to the company’s latest PrecisionCore™ TFP print head technology.
The new T Series features improved operational flexibility, enhanced network security, optional Postscript® and MFP functionality. In addition the range features two new dual-roll models that enable operation with multiple media types and sizes with fast and intelligent auto roll exchange. The new Adobe® Postscript® option features high-speed hardware processing with a simple and flexible drag-n-drop interface. Complementing the range is an optional large format 36" scanner which enables configuration of a complete MFP solution for high-resolution scan, copy and share.
Epson Australia General Manager for its Business Division Craig Heckenberg said, “The new range of SureColor T Series printers represent a significant step up from the previous range with improved speed, functionality, operational flexibility, and workgroup productivity.”
The new T Series range consists of the 24" SureColor T3200, 36" SureColor T5200, 36" Dual-Roll SureColor T5200D, 44" SureColor T7200 and 44" Dual-Roll SureColor T7200D.
Heckenberg continued, “The range not only offers high performance, printing an A1 page in as little as 28 seconds, but matches this with high durability and ultra-low running costs. Also power consumption and ink costs are often only half the amount of competitive, comparable products.”
At the heart of the new T Series is Epson’s revolutionary new PrecisionCore™ TFP print head with 2880 maximum dpi resolution and Variable-Sized Droplet Technology™ (VSDT). The TFP print head provides outstanding accuracy and durability while VSDT enables superior imaging with reduced ink consumption.
All T series printers feature a compact design with all taking front-loaded consumables and boasting easy operation even against a wall or in a corner. Performance and functionality on the new range has been enhanced with 1GB of memory as standard and the option of a 320GB hard drive. The new range also enjoys a faster processor with improved print quality and a new, quieter auto cutter.
The improvements don’t stop there. The new T Series offers better networking and workgroup integration with USB2.0 and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity matched with support for the latest IPv6, IPsec and SSL/TLS security protocols as well as enhanced HP-GL/2. The larger 2.7" colour display features an updated interface with integrated help while updated driver software provides users with an enhanced desktop experience. Output handling has also been improved with new media bins on the single roll models that offer the choice of flat or folded display while dual-roll models offer extra-large storage for long uninterrupted print runs. There is even an Auto Take-Up option for the T7200.
The new range boasts many well received features from the first generation T Series including large waste tanks, ‘permanent’ print heads and a choice of cost-effective 110ml, 350ml and 700ml ink cartridges. Roll media operation features convenient spindle-less loading as well as a barcode system for media usage tracking and auto re-configuration. The design of each printer has been considered from every angle and as a result, each model has a rigid high precision chassis and small footprint. Finally all T Series printers offer superior sheet media support with a straight through paper path capable of handling board up to 1.5mm thick.
Craig Heckenberg concluded, “The new T Series truly is an impressive range of printers that provide business, corporate and government users with superior output, higher productivity, simple and flexible operation, reduced maintenance and lower running costs. All printers in the series have been designed to support a very wide range of applications including technical design work, mapping, posters and presentation graphics. With their heavy board support they can even be used for interior signage and model making. The new T Series also uses Epson UltraChrome® XD Ink that dries almost instantly so that it is water and rub resistant and thus ideal for posters, displays and building plans. For peace of mind the T Series is backed by an on-site warranty in Australia and New Zealand with a choice of cover from the standard one to and extended three years.”
Epson’s new range of T Series printers is available now from authorised Epson dealers.
