FX-890II

The FX-890II is a high-volume, low TCO 80-column dot matrix printer designed for fast, reliable printing. A contemporary new design and smaller footprint make upgrading easy and add a range of new features for unprecedented flexibility.

Market-leading print speeds¹

The FX-890II offers an improved USD (ultra speed draft) speed of 735 characters per second at 12 characters per inch, making a real difference to high-volume print runs such as stock reports and large batches of invoices or freight documents.

Outstanding reliability

Epson's dot matrix technology is already mature and very reliable, and these new printers improve the mean time between failure by 25% to 25,000 power-on hours, ideal for challenging conditions or where regular maintenance is not practical.

Smaller footprint

Epson's new range of dot matrix printers has a refreshed design with a smaller footprint - depth has been reduced to just 320mm - making it easy to place into a business environment.
