Serial Printers 

The Types PRU9101 and 9102 Serial Printers are 
self-contained, tabletop printers designed for 
low-cost printing requirements. The printers have 
64- and 96-character ASCII code sets, respectively. 
Both operate at 165 characters per second and 
print at line speeds of 60 lines per minute (1pm) 
for 132 characters/line and 200 1pm for 
20-30 characters/line. 

The printers interface with the Level 6 processor 
by means of a single-board Multiple Device Con¬ 
troller (MDC9101), a Printer Device-Pac 
(PRM9101),and a 50-foot cable. The printers can 
be made self-standing via Option PRF9101, the 
serial printer pedestal. 


• Upper-/lowercase print capability with PRU9102 

• Separate offline test mode for easy maintenance 

• Line speeds of 60 1pm at 132 characters per line; 
200 1pm at 20-30 characters/line 

• Original and up to four carbon copies 

• Vertical forms tape permits various form sizes 


Data to the serial printer must be in standard 
ASCII 7-bit format. A maximum of 132 characters 
per line and only one line at a time can be printed 
per operation. All data transfers are under DMA 
(Direct Memory Access) control. 

Spacing to top-of-form and testing for end-of-form 
is controlled via holes punched into a paper tape. 
The operator may, therefore, change the spacing 
by simply punching a new paper tape. 


The printers are software supported by Level 6 
GCOS/BES I/O drivers and executive routines. A 
test and maintenance program assists in fault isola¬ 
tion and maintenance of the equipment.
