  • 1Description

The Epson FX-890 is a full-featured, 9-Pin impact printer that offers the durability and ease of use required for critical daily print requirements. This narrow-carriage workhorse boasts an MTBF rating of 20,000 power-on hours (POH) and print speeds of up to 680 cps. It has been engineered for seamless integration and provides Parallel & USB connectivity with an expansion slot for additional connectivity options. Furthermore, it includes EPSON Remote Configuration Manager software for easy printer setup and simple setting selections via most Windows operating systems. The Epson FX-890 races through forms up to 7 parts thick through four convenient paper paths.
