PM1416 Series Print Mechanism

GENERAL DESCRIPTION The DataPlot model PM 1416 Print Mechanism incorporates a thermal printhead with 416 heat element dots arrayed in a single line across the width of the paper. The mechanism holds a supply roll of 4.5" wide thermal paper and moves the paper past the printhead in steps of approximately .005 inch. When driven by a DataPlot CB 1416 or CB 1100 Control Board, the print mechanism steps the paper forward, pausing after each step to heat selected dots. In this manner, a dot matrix representation of alphanumeric and/or graphic data can be printed.
