Any matrix printer with interface rs-232: Epson (example Lx-300), Oki. Serial interface (may) be an additional option. Detail in catalog manufactor (producer) Printer

You must use a printer that can operate under the MS-DOS. Look at OKI (see model Okipage 12i, 14ex, 14i, 16n, 20, 24). We must have a serial interface for printer or use the CP340 with printer interface, or convertor serial to parallel interface (Rs-232 to LPT (centronics)). You can use epson termoprinter.


p.s.
I not use printer with Siemens, I analize Compatibility interface (hard & soft)
