Printer description
The HP DesignJet 230 printer is a replacement for the existing HP DesignJet 220 printer, the leading large-format monochrome inkjet printer in the low-end CAD market. The printer will be the most affordable HP DesignJet series printer, with 600-dpi addressable black output on cut-sheet media. The HP DesignJet 230 printer will plot a D-size plot in about five minutes. The printer ships with 4 MB of memory, but is upgradeable to 36 MB. It will sit on a table top, or can easily be converted to a free-standing unit with the purchase of optional legs.
Printer new features
Attractive design, small footprint
The HP DesignJet 230 printer has a more attractive industrial design than the previous model. Its reduced footprint and weight means the printer occupies less space and can be moved with greater ease. This is critical to those with limited office space.
Large memory capacity
The HP DesignJet 230 printer ships with a standard 4 MB of memory, allowing you to plot larger vector files. In addition, you can expand the printer’s memory capacity by inserting one RAM SIMM of 4 MB, 8 MB, 16 MB, or 32 MB in the single-memory slot.
Black cartridge with ink level indicator
The HP DesignJet 230 printer uses the same black high-capacity cartridge as the HP DesignJet 650C and 250C printers. In addition to being clean and convenient to replace, the cartridge has an ink level indicator that enables you to determine when the cartridge must be changed.
Fast 600-dpi (addressable) print mode
The HP DesignJet 230 printer offers fast 600-dpi (addressable) printing. You can plot a typical architectural drawing (normal quality) in less than six minutes.
Best-in-class connectivity
Connectivity is an HP strength that we have undersold considerably in the past. The HP DesignJet 230 printer:
  • provides industry standard interfaces (serial & parallel) with new improved performance
  • supports the industry standard vector and raster languages
  • comes with a complete portfolio of drivers that support the AutoCAD and Windows environments, including:
    • AutoCAD R10, R11 (DOS)
    • AutoCAD R12 (DOS, Windows - NEW)
    • AutoCAD R13 - NEW (DOS, Windows)
    • MS Windows 3.1 System Printer Driver.
Reliable, one-year onsite warranty and low service contract costs.
You can rely on the HP DesignJet 230 printers to perform day after day, without having to worry about maintenance problems. And HP's one-year onsite warranty means you do not have to pay more and give up your printer for days for service repair by sending it to a service center.
