Description

The PRN-C41 is a 4 color plotter released by Sony in Japan in 1984 for use with the MSX and the (non-MSX) Sony SMC-777. It has an international or Japanese MSX character set depending on the region it was sold in.

The version for the German market was the PRN-C41D. The difference with the regular European PRN-C41 is presumably that the German version replaces the zero (0) character from the International MSX character set with the German DIN variation. The difference therefore would be pretty much unnoticeable.

In the Netherlands it was sold in combination with Creative Greetings on cartridge.

A set of replacement plotter pens was sold as the PRK-C41 (small) or PRK-C42 (big). The power supply is the Sony AC-C41.

The same printer was also sold as the General PCP-5501 and the Toshiba HX-P570.
