Wireless Printing Options for USB Output

I work with lab instruments that have a USB port where the test results can be sent to a printer using a USB printer cable.  These instruments are not controlled by a PC, and additional software can not be loaded on them.

I am looking for a way to send the printer output wirelessly to a printer.

I am not sure you can do this if the instrument software does not allow it. I can save an image on USB on my B&K 2516 but that does not and cannot send wirelessly to a printer.

I think you need to save what you need and take the USB stick to a computer and then print from there.

These instruments are very limited purpose.  They will send an output to a printer.  I am essentially looking for something that will replace the USB cable to wirelessly transfer the output to the printer.

The firmware needs to do that and unless it does, you probably cannot. I have 3 instruments with USB capability and none will do this.

John, thanks for your input.  It would be great if someone made a wireless solution that would replace the USB cable without the need of software on the devices it was connecting.

@sxlowry  - Thank you. I agree. The most flexible USB instrument is my Instek GDS 2304 digital scope and I would love a wireless printing capability.
