Product Overview:

Model 1250 is NOVA’s wide format, military-grade color inkjet printer capable of printing up to 11” x 17”sheets. Following the design concepts of the tested and flight-qualified Model 1150 Printer selected by Boeing for deployment aboard the P-8I Multi-mission Aircraft, the 1250 is designed to meet the same MIL standards for EMI/EMC, power transients, shock, vibration, crash acceleration, temperature and humidity to include sand and dust.

The 23.6 Short printer is specifically designed for space challenged applications and is the compact version of the Model 1250 – 30”Long.

From a performance perspective, Model 1250 is rated at 33 pages per minute in black mode, up to 29 pages-per-minute in color mode, and uses standard HP ink cartridges. Power consumption is approximately 25 Watts when printing and a mere 2 Watts in standby mode. The heater option adds about 100W max while active.

Standard I/O interfaces include USB 2.0 and Ethernet (10/100 Base-T). through the Amphenol RJFIELD and USBFIELD connector series.

Continued availability of the HP engine and parts up to five (5) years after their announced discontinuation is assured by NOVA’s EOL program.

*In the short configuration, to print on 11×17 paper the front door must remain open and the paper tray extended past the front panel opening. While printing on 11×17 paper the printer will not meet the operational shock/vibration specs as well as EMI/EMC and sand/dust.
