The Bixolon Thermal Printer is a popular brand of thermal printers manufactured by BIXOLON Co., Ltd., a leading global manufacturer of printing technologies. Bixolon offers a wide range of thermal printers, including models that support both USB and LAN (Ethernet) connectivity options.
Similar to the ZKT Thermal Printer mentioned earlier, the USB and LAN connectivity options on a Bixolon Thermal Printer provide flexibility in how you can connect and use the printer.
The USB connection allows you to directly connect the printer to a computer or other compatible device using a USB cable. This type of connection is suitable for single-device printing setups or situations where you want to connect the printer directly to a specific device.
The LAN (Ethernet) connection, on the other hand, enables you to connect the Bixolon printer to a local network. This allows multiple devices on the same network to send print jobs to the printer, making it a suitable choice for shared printing environments where multiple computers or devices need access to a single printer.
To use a Bixolon Thermal Printer, you typically need to install the required printer drivers and software on your computer or device. The printer drivers enable your operating system to communicate with the printer, while the software provides control and configuration options for the printer.
