When security standards and top printing performance really matters, the SOLID 52A4 MICR professional laser printer is the perfect choice: the first page is printed in less than 6 seconds and this model boasts printing speeds of up to 52 pages per minute. It combines the highest level of reliability with versatile paper handling capabilities and meeting all relevant security requirements. Optional face-up output and the GPIO (SPS control) option provide with the unique Microplex controller supplying the intelligence for the best prerequisites for integrating the printer in existing system environments. Unlike the standard modell, the SOLID 52A4 MICR can only be operated with MICR toner to meet highest security needs for cheque printing and other securtiy relevant documents.

Ideal for:

  • Security relevant documents / cheque printing
  • Paper exit face-up and face-down
  • printing with different emulations (PCL5, IPDS, ...)
  • Perfect substitution for matrix printer


  • Printing of cheques with MICR toner
  • Equipped with MICR toner for highest security standards
  • Optional WIFI and PDF direct print
  • Duplex printing standard
  • SAP and AS/400 compatible
  • Flexible extension options for paper feed and tray
  • Perfect control via GPIO / Status-Out

What is the difference between the SOLID 52A4 MICR and the standard model?

In contrast to the standard model, the SOLID 52A4 MICR can only be operated with MICR toner to meet the highest safety requirements for check printing and other safety-relevant documents. All other features and options that are available for the standard model are also available for the MICR model.

For more information on features such as optional document output in face-up mode, communication with PLC-controlled systems using GPIO or the optional addition of paper trays, see SOLID 52A4.

Lineprinter Replacement with SOLID 52A4

Why should some line printers or line printers be replaced with a SOLID 52A4 cut-sheet laser printer?

There are applications that can be operated much more efficiently with a Microplex single-sheet laser printer than is possible with an continuous dot-matrix printer.
