simple PCL printer message composer

Recommended Posts

Is there any chance of the future holding a feature that would compose reports to printers? something to the likes of the email message composer. put in text, variables, etc and have a ladder FB that when triggered would send out to a printer via USB or TCP? I know there is an example file for a TCP printer, I've looked it over, not live tested yet. It's complex to say the least. I would love to get my Unistream client daily reports printed out direct from PLC. The old Foxboro round paper charts with the red ink go in the garbage on most upgrades, the onscreen displays (trends) and emails are great, however some still like/require that data on paper. Paper: that nostalgic, almost extinct white stuff.
