Unique in its class
The Index Everest is a double sided (interpoint) and single sided fast braille embosser with stable handling of cut sheet paper at an economic price. It is easy to use and produces very high quality braille. This makes the Everest by far most used embosser of its kind in all countries where the users prefer to print braille onto cut sheet paper.
Ready for use
Braille printout from Everest is ready to be used immediately. Compare this with a traditional braille embosser where the continuous fan-fold embossed paper has to be separated, and the tractor slips has to be removed.
Everest is controlled by an ink and braille labelled front panel. Combined with the speech feedback it is easy to install and operate by blind and sighted users alike.
Stable paper handling
Everest sheet feeder is very stable with a fault frequency below 5/1000 sheets when correctly installed and with a suitable paper. For maintaining stable paper handling it is necessary to clean pick-up rollers regulary. Just rub it with a fine sandpaper and it is like new again.
The sheet feeder can be loaded with seventy sheets of normal card stock type and it can easily be adapted to the used paper size. The advantage of the large paper magazine is that Everest can emboss for more than half an hour before refilling is required.
Locally produced paper of suitable card quality is usually available in most countries and works very well with the Everest. This helps to reduce paper costs compared to importing specially produced tractor fed braille paper for traditional embossers.
Everest version III includes
- Light diodes for status information
- Serial port (RS 232C)
- Network port (TCP/IP)
- USB port
- Parallel port (ECP, EPP, SPP)
The sheet feeder can easily be adjusted for different paper sizes. Moving the margin guides to the correct position and locking them sets the width. Automatic sensing of a reference page sets the page length.
It can safely handle most types of paper quality from copy paper to card stock paper.
