Barudan BEAT 800 Series
800 Series Machines
Models in the 800 series came in 2, 4 and 6 head configurations. The heads came in both 5-needle and 7-needle versions. Machine models with UF in the name (802-UF) were 5-needle machines, and the UG models (806-UG) were 7 needles.
The 800 series also came in the YS version which featured independent take-up levers (and had 7 needles).
The 800 series machines used the same keyboard system as the Barudan BEAT 700 Series, the previous series of multi-head machines in the BEAT series. The series also had a three-line vacuum fluorescent display.
The Barudan 800 Series had automatic trimmers and automatic color changes.
The Barudan BEAT models can be upgraded with the Embroidery Black Box which is an external file reader which allows the BEAT 800 series to upload design files from a modern USB flash memory stick.
