Presenting Your Best Image

Nothing adds more impact to your presentations and reports than colour. Colour is a clear advantage and the Phaser 240 delivers the high-performancecolour printing required for workgroup applications.

The Colour Printer Built For Your Workgroup

Networking: The Phaser 240 includes genuine AdobePostScriptLevel 2. Share it with PCs, Macs, and workstations. Ethernet is available in Novell® NetWare®, EtherTalk, and TCP/IPprotocols. All ports are simultaneously active. Just send your job to print and the Phaser 240 automatically switches between ports and protocols.

Speed: At two pages per minute it’s fast enough to handle the demands of any workgroup. The Phaser 240 won’t tie up your computer with image processing. It’s just what you need to keep your workgroup productive.

Multiple Trays: The compact Phaser 240 blends into any office environment. Dual input trays are available for added convenience and efficiency. There’s no need to leave your

computer; with two input trays you can choose to print on transparencies or paper right from

your keyboard.

High Capacity: With the Phaser 240 you can make 342 colour prints from a single transfer roll. The Phaser 240 provides unattended operation so you can focus your attention on your project, not your printer. With our exclusive ColorCoattransfer roll you can even make colour prints on common office laser papers.

Why Settle For Less Than The Best?

It’s true, the Phaser 240 prints beautiful, 300 dots-per-inchcolour output on common office laser papers. But we’ve taken thermal-

transfer technology to the next level. Just add

8 Mbytes of memory to enable TekColor SuperCell

600: colour printing withuser-selectable

600 x 300 dpi resolution. SuperCell 600 improves every aspect of the printed page – sharper details, higher contrast, smoother shading, and more saturated colour. To arrange for a demonstration to see what a Phaser 240 can do for your

workgroup, call your dealer today.
