HP Designjet 455ca Printer - Product Specifications
Serial number location
When facing the printer, lift the top cover, and look for a gray label to your right. The serial number is in the white area of a gray label.
The HP Designjet 455ca large-format printer is based on the HP Designjet 400 series platform. It has been created for design professionals who need an affordable solution in terms of image quality and ease of use to produce impressive large-format color output. Design professionals benefit from a complete solution in which printer, connectivity components, inks and media have been developed together to produce the best results.
The HP Designjet 455ca printer comes with the new HP Designjet 455ca RIP (Raster Image Processing) software, including a level 2 PostScript (R) interpreter which translates PostScript data for output to HP RTL. The 455ca RIP provides impressive images with smooth, crisp fonts and true colors are the result of the interpreter's sophisticated dithering algorithms and has been design to support Macintosh based platforms.
The HP Designjet 455ca supports HP-GL, HP-GL / 2, HP-RTL, PJL, PML and PostScript Level 2 for Macintosh. AutoCAD drivers are also provided. Additional features include:
RS-232 and bidirectional with ECP mode (IEEE-1284) built in. Input-Output switching.
NOTE: Use HP-recommended cables to prevent loss of data during transmissions.
* Except for glossy media types (in which case it is 300 dpi).
** Except for black with HP RTL, where the resolution is 600 x 600 dpi.
The following media are supported by the HP Designjet 455ca printer.
NOTE: For image printing purposes some, HP translucent bond, HP vellum, and HP natural tracing paper are not recommended.
Roll media should have an inner core diameter of 2 inches and an outer core diameter of 2.125 inches. The maximum diameter of the rolls is 3.8 inches. Roll widths can be 24 or 36 inches.
NOTE: All measurements are +/- 0.08 inch (2 mm).
The combination of these ink cartridges and HP papers and films provides superior print quality, short drying times, and vibrant color quality. Other ink systems and print heads do not work in this printer.
Expect to print approximately 20 A0/E-size prints when printing on coated paper.
Maximum ink in each cartridge is about 42 ml.
HP cannot guarantee optimum print quality after the date printed on the print cartridge.
HP does not recommend using refilled print cartridges in HP Inkjet printers.
The memory capacity of the HP Designjet 400 series printer is 36 MB. 4 MB of memory are in built-in RAM on the main board. The remainder is available through one SIMM (single inline memory module) slot that can take either a 4-MB, 8-MB, 16-MB, or 32-MB SIMM card. The second SIMM socket is intended for code upgrades.
The HP Designjet 400 series printer is shipped with 4 MB of RAM on the main board as standard. Available memory is reduced by approximately 2 MB of "overhead" requirements, for example, stack space, the I/O buffer, and variable storage. A rough estimate of the ratio of user-to-DJ400 file storage is 0.8/1. File expansion in the HP Designjet 400 series printer buffer depends largely on file content. Labels, polygons, line widths greater than 1 mm, and raster data are examples of memory-eaters.
When receiving a print, the HP Designjet 400 series printer stores all the vector data and raster data in the memory buffer. If the buffer is full, remaining vector data is read in and discarded. If sending all raster data, the buffer is filled then printed, plotting continues in this way until the print is complete.
