Commodore-Compatible Printer

Star Micronics has introduced the NX-10C, a fully Commodore-compatible dot-matrix printer which connects to a Commodore 64 or 128 through a built-in Commodore serial interface. The NX-10C features its own built-in character set with upper- and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols, and block graphics.

A front touchpad panel lets you select draft or near-letter-quality print mode, typeface, print pitch, margin settings, and form alignment without adjusting the rear DIP switches. Speeds range from 120 characters per second (cps) for draft output to 30 cps for near-letter-quality printing.

The NX-10C also offers automatic paper feed with both rear tractor feed and friction feed, so you can use either fanfold paper or single sheets. A micro-feed allows you to use preprinted forms as well.

The NX-10C is also bidirectional and has logic-seeking capability.

Suggested retail price for the NX-10C is $349, The package includes a snap-in ribbon cassette.
