The ZKT Thermal Printer is a type of thermal printer manufactured by ZKTeco, a company that specializes in security and access control solutions. This particular model supports both USB and LAN (Ethernet) connectivity options, allowing you to connect it to various devices for printing purposes.
Thermal printers use heat to create images on heat-sensitive paper without the need for ink or toner cartridges. They are commonly used in retail, hospitality, and other industries where receipt or label printing is required.
By supporting USB and LAN connectivity, the ZKT Thermal Printer offers flexibility in terms of 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 is a convenient option for single-device printing setups.
On the other hand, the LAN (Ethernet) connection enables you to connect the printer to a local network, allowing multiple devices to share the printer for printing tasks. This can be beneficial in scenarios where multiple computers or devices need to send print jobs to a central printer.
To use the ZKT Thermal Printer, you typically need to install the necessary printer drivers and software on your computer or device. This software enables you to control the printer, adjust print settings, and send print commands.
