Our Virtual Printer works with POS receipt printers. The Virtual Printer can send a print job to any hardware printer, extract text from the data, make PDF or raster formats, or transfer data as is to a hardware POS printer.
All POS data remains intact in the printer job, so they are correctly handled by a POS printer.
The main difference between our driver and others is that our driver keeps all POS data intact so that when you redirect output to a laser printer, you will have a normal text printout. However, when you redirect this job to a POS printer, it will use all commands as expected.
Our driver also can extract text from a POS printer job and pass it to a custom client application which can do anything you want: save as a file, send by e-mail, or store into a database. And of course our driver can generate PDF or raster formats for you.
Are you looking for “POS printer emulator” or “thermal printer emulator”?
We are thinking about developing such a tool, therefore we need to investigate which needs it should meet. Please let us know:
