Rough conditions. Tough demands. A printer in an industrial or POS situation must perform -- or it's gone. The OKIDATA Microline 186 Turbo thrives in these environments. Our latest 180 Series dot matrix printer, the 186 Turbo is faster than its predecessor and comes equipped to handle more forms and paper types than any printer in its class. It's small enough to fit practically anywhere, yet it's packed with our advanced, field-proven technology. And the 186 Turbo is built to OKIDATA's renowned standards for quality and reliability. It gets the job done, day after day.

Significantly faster and more precise

The 186 Turbo is the logical evolution of our popular ML182T. It combines the efficiencies and economies of that legendaray model with greatly improved speed: 36% faster than before! To ensure that you get precise characters (even on the last page of a 5-part form), the 186 Turbo has OKIDATA's patented optical sensor that accurately positions the printhead. And, to make the precision last, ML186T sports our rack-and-pinion drive system plus a redesigned 200 million-character printhead -- bigger and sturdier, for twice the life of many printers in its class.

The only true demand-document printer in its class

Difficult media. Hard-to-handle forms. With the 186 Turbo, virtually any sheet-fed or continuous form can be printed without waste -- or wait. Unlike other industrial and POS printers, the 186 Turbo offers both bottom-feed and short-tear paper handling standard -- so you can remove forms right at the perforation every time. No more wasting the next form. The 186 Turbo's pinfeed platen moves card stock and labels effortlessly, along with multi-part forms up to 9.5" wide. And, while competitive printers have difficulty printing three-part forms, the 186 Turbo prints five -- with each copy just as readable as the original. A short, straight paper path reduces the liklihood of jamming: continuous forms and single sheet paper, like letterhead, feed smoothly through the rear or top. The optional Pull Tractor Kit handles media from 3" to 9.5" wide.

Performance under pressure -- at breathtaking speeds

Whatever the need, whatever the workload, the 186 Turbo sets an impressive pace. Stand back and watch as invoices, shop tickets, receipts, memos, even drafts are kicked out, super-fast. Select any of four speed settings and get a quality product in less time than with our 182T. Fastest is the blazing 300 characters-per-second (cps) "super speed" draft mode, following by the 240 cps high-speed draft, 200 cps utility, and the near-letter quality of 50 cps. When speed counts, count on the 186 Turbo to deliver.

A built-in serial interface goes a long way

If you process information over long distances, make the 186 Turbo your serial printer. It can save you time and needless additional expense. Just specify the factory-configured Super Speed Serial RS232-C interface. You can boost productivity at a 19.2K baud rate, and support XON/XOFF and Ready/Busy protocols.

The perfect blend of form, fit and function

The 186 Turbo has the same footprint as the 182T and, for compatibility, the same emulations. It also presents a familiar face, with up-front control of type size, print quality and other frequently used functions. A "lockout" feature prevents abuse by disabling the printer's front panel pitch and mode selectors. It's everything you appreciated in the 182T -- and so much more.

The first word in printers that are built to last

OKIDATA provides the edge in quality and reliability no competing printer can claim. It's the reasssurance of years of innovation and dependable service. And the backing of a full-year warranty and a national network of authorized OKIDATA Dealer Service Centers and Service Depots. Demand the best for your business. Put the rugged, affordable Microline 186 Turbo to work in your shop or behind your counter - today.
