Hi Laurence, 

 

As far as I can tell there are no existing drivers for LabVIEW  to drive your printer over ethernet. You might be able to acheive communication with the printer yourself using the functions found in the Data Communication»Protocols»TCP pallette within LabVIEW. These functions can be used to send a string command to your printer and information about the functions can be found either here or within LabVIEW. If you do write a driver, it would be great if you could upload it to our instrument driver network at to help others in the future.

 

Unfortunately we don't offer the service of writing drivers in cases like these, but an alternative would be to get in touch with the manufacturer and see if they would be willing to produce one for you.

 

Please dont hesitate to reply to this thread again if you have further questions.

Thank you Matt you have confirmed what I had found in my searches.

 

We are currently developing software to allow us to do this I will ask if we can upload but I will need permission, however I will help in any way I can if I get a question.

 

We are currently investigating the best way to do this we use a few of these devices.

 

Many thanks

 

Laurence

Turned out to be readily straight forward using the TCP pallet, all that is required is IP address printer port number and send a string command to format then print the lable. Its all in the manual.

 

If anyone needs help let me know

 

Regards
