Printer description
The HP Deskjet 1600C printer is a plain paper, drop-on-demand thermal Inkjet printer that is network-capable for DOS, Windows, HP UNIX (R), SunOS, and Solaris environments. The HP Deskjet 1600C printer advances the standard of black and color mid-range mainstream printing set by the HP Deskjet 1200C printer. The HP Deskjet 1600C printer offers improved black print quality, faster black and color throughput, media handling flexibility, enhanced usability, and a new contemporary HP Deskjet family design.
The HP Deskjet 1600CM printer is a network-ready PostScript (R) printer for DOS, Windows, Macintosh, OS/2, and UNIX computers.
The HP Deskjet 1600CN printer is a network-ready non-PostScript (PCL only) printer for DOS, Windows, Windows NT, HP UNIX, SunOS, and Solaris environments.
Printer features
The HP Deskjet 1600C printer produces high quality, black (600 by 600 dpi) and color (300 by 300 dpi) printing on a variety of paper types. The printer also complies with the U.S. Government's "Energy Star" program that reduces the amount of power consumption during idle time.
Other features include:
  • ColorSmart technology that makes color printing simple and easy.
  • Memory Enhancement technology (MEt) that allows most large, complex files to print within base memory.
  • Networking capability for easily shared, cost-effective color. The HP Deskjet 1600CM printer comes standard with Ethernet, LocalTalk, and Centronics interfaces. Optional HP Jetdirect print servers are available for the HP Deskjet 1600C printer. HP Jetadmin and HP JetPrint network management tools are standard with HP Jetdirect print servers.
  • Multi-platform printing - Automatic I/O switching between Centronics and the network interface.
  • HP LaserJet 4 Plus printer compatibility, including typefaces, margins, memory, and optional HP Jetdirect print server interface cards.
  • Printer languages - including HP PCL 5C (with HP-GL/2 extensions), HP PML, HP PJL, and optional Adobe (R) PostScript Level 2 Languages.
  • Adobe PostScript Level 2 is standard on the HP Deskjet 1600CM printer and is available as an accessory upgrade for the HP Deskjet 1600C printer. Both the PostScript upgrade and the fully configured PostScript product come with environment drivers for Windows, Macintosh, and Macintosh QuickDraw GX.
  • Automatic language switching between PCL 5C and Adobe PostScript.
  • Environment drivers for Microsoft (R) Windows provide printer control and status feedback at your computer, TrueType and ATM support, color matching to the screen, and PANTONE (R)* color matching (when printing a PANTONE(R)* color using an application that is PANTONE(R)* certified).
  • The HP Deskjet 1600C printer Control Panel - a DOS printer-software utility that allows those who use DOS to control the printer defaults from the computer.
  • The HP Deskjet 1600C printer Status Monitor for Windows - a printer software utility that lets you know the status of your printer without leaving your computer screen (available for printers that are directly connected to a computer).
  • Out-of-ink sensing and automatic suspension of printing to prevent wasted paper.
  • HP Jetdirect Print Server (HP Deskjet 1600CN only).
  • Windows NT driver (PCL and PostScript) (HP Deskjet 1600CN only).
      note:
    PCL and PostScript will both be on the same disk for the Windows NT driver included with the HP Deskjet 1600CN printer. This is because the NT driver is being used for all models in the HP Deskjet 1600C series printers, not just the HP Deskjet 1600CN printers. To use PostScript, the optional PostScript SIMM chip, part number C1672-60272, will be required.
  • 500 sheet paper tray (HP Deskjet 1600CN printer only). See Note below.
      note:
    The HP Deskjet 1600CN printer is shipped with the 500 sheet paper tray in the US, Canada, UK, and Sweden. The 500 sheet paper tray is an option for the rest of the world to purchase.

  • Use the XJet IV MIO printer server from XCD (see XCD's Web site).
  • Use an Ethernet network interface card in the Macintosh computers to communicate with the MIO Ethernet/Fast Ethernet print server through EtherTalk.
  • Use an Ethernet-to-LocalTalk converter such as the Asante Micro AsantePrint product (see Asante's Web site).
