TROY Group, Inc., a worldwide leader in the printing and management of security documents, is pleased to announce the release of its latest MICR printer, the TROY M506.

The M506 printer allows you to select your preferred level of security by choosing from three models including a basic MICR printer, a more advanced MICR Secure printer, or the most advanced MICR Secure Ex printer. All TROY printers are fully compatible with TROY MICR cartridges and standard HP cartridges.

As part of the new series of LaserJet printers with HP JetIntelligence, these printers use up to 53 percent less energy, are 40 percent smaller, and up to 40 percent faster with less time for first page out. The M506 comes with a TROY MICR Toner Secure cartridge. This toner is a patented formula that helps deter fraudulent alteration by releasing a red dye when chemical removal of toner is attempted with a solvent. If chemical alteration is attempted on a document, a red stain will appear.

Cartridges for the M506 also encompass new JetIntelligence toner technology making cartridges more efficient. The standard yield cartridge yields approximately 9,000 pages and the high yield cartridge yields approximately 18,000 pages, both with 5 percent coverage. The M506 prints up to 45 pages per minute with a recommended volume of between 2,000 – 7,500 pages per month.

Multiple features and benefits are available with the M506. Fast printing and features like duplexing allow for multifunctional use in small to medium sized office environments. ExPT™ Exact Positioning Technology allows users to precisely adjust the MICR line without affecting the data file. This is an important feature because a MICR line out of alignment is one cause of rejected checks, a multi-million dollar problem for banks and companies. This feature is available on all TROY M506 MICR printers.

Another feature, known as Built-In Secure Encryption and Decryption, addresses the fact that data security is critical in a distributed printing application. TROY’s encryption/decryption technology “unlocks” and prints the data only when it is received at the TROY printer. Exterior features include built-in locking paper trays, which prevent unauthorized access to valuable check stock and steel tray shielding, which prevents paper removal from the back of the printer. These features are available on TROY M506 MICR Secure and MICR Secure Ex printers.

For the highest level of security, the M506 Secure Ex printer includes even greater benefits. Exclusive TROYMark™ Intelligent Anti-Tampering Technology is available. TROYMark™ is a watermark of user-defined variable data, printed diagonally across each check. It provides state-of-the-art deterrence of fraudulent check alteration. An exterior feature available for the Secure Ex is the 3-Position Printer Lock. Most businesses locate their workgroup printer in an open office environment. This creates a security risk. The Secure Ex printer features a printer lock to deter printer misuse. The lock features 3-positions, including, MICR Locked, Printer Locked, and Print MICR. The key set to MICR Locked means that no MICR features can be printed; Printer Locked means that nothing can be printed; Print MICR means that MICR can be printed.

Customers can complete the solution for securing not only their printers, but their printed documents as well by adding items such as TROY Check Paper, which offers a variety of options to fit all printing needs. Signatures, logos or forms can also be easily added to the printers with the addition of a digitizing kit.

“The different models of the M506 MICR printer offer something for any small to medium sized office,” said Larry Landtiser, Executive Vice President and General Manager at TROY Group, Inc. “You tell us what you need, and we’ll tell you which model is right for you.”
