Compuprint 4247-L03

Reliability and flexibility for printing multi-sheet forms in manufacturing and logistics environments.

Model Compuprint 4247-L03


Designed to solve medium-low volume industrial printing requirements, the Compuprint 4247-L03 printer is presented as a reliable printer for industrial and office environments at an attractive cost. The Compuprint 4247-L03 can provide broad flexibility in types of forms, compatibility with large - format printing, remote printer management, etc . The Ethernet connection allows easy integration into a work network.


  • Prints up to 720 characters per second (cps) 1 in forms of up to 8 sheets and by either of the two paper entry ways (main and secondary).
  • It reduces the need for user intervention, in addition it can be managed remotely.
  • Easy integration in any environment with standard centronics parallel connection and USB 2.0 or 10/100 Ethernet serial ports to choose from.
  • Improves productivity with two paper entry ways, automatic form loading, automatic thickness adjustment, automatic ejection and recovery of paper and other functions.
  • Designed to optimize performance and uptime. The robust design of the Compuprint 4247-L03 printer makes it ideal for office, factory or warehouse environments that require reliable printing at a given point. Remote management software, included with the optional Ethernet card, facilitates configuration and minimizes interruptions in the printing process. This software allows the remote configuration of several printers through a comfortable graphical interface and the proactive supervision of printers indicating the status of them in real time.

The exact speed varies depending on the complexity of the document, the system configuration, the software application, the driver and the status of the printer.
The maximum workload is calculated in the nominal duty cycle (4 hours per day for 22 days per month)
The life of the tape depends on many factors, including the condition of the printer, the configuration of the machine, the quality of the paper and the barcode. For optimal printer performance, use only genuine Compuprint consumables.
