Thermal Receipt POS Printer Driver
Posted on 2013-01-01
I am currently trying to setup a Posbox PB-T88 thermal Receipt printer in place of a dead Citizen CT-S2000. I had the Citizen running without hitch for several years. However, the power supply (internal) has died and I decided to replace it with this Posbox unit that I had here for a backup.
I am having troubles, as our POS system requires a printer driver to be installed to the POS system BEFORE it can use it - however this printer doesn't ship with a driver. I have successfully setup probably 8 of these printers for people that have POS systems that print direct without requiring a driver first.
Now, the characteristics of the printer are as follows:
* Using the Citizen driver that was installed originally, the printer will work fine with our POS system - prints AND cuts without stuffing up HOWEVER it prints painfully slow - 1 lineevery 10-12 seconds.
* Using some Epson drivers for a *-T88 POS printer (as I assume it is essentially an Epson POS printer), I attempted to install and communicate with this printer and it throws me an error every time - it won't even talk to the printer let alone print anything that is readable.
The POS system that I am using has Windows XP Pro 32-bit SP3.
Any and all help will be greatly appreciated :)
