Are there printer control commands or an SDK that can be used to integrate the LX400/LX800/LX810/LX900/LX2000 into a printing system?
There is no SDK or printer commands for printing to the LX series printer. The printer only accepts rasterized prints (PRN) from a driver. The printer does not accept standard language codes like PCL or Post Script. The LX Series printers are true raster-based Windows printers. Our printer driver sends all of the information that needs to be printed – bit by bit. It uses a proprietary Windows/Mac Printer Driver that must rasterize/render the print and then send it to the USB port. It does not have built-in fonts like the legacy bar code printers from Datamax or Zebra with their ZPL/DPL code sets. This is the way that most office/consumer printers work since the introduction of USB 1.0/2.0, fast PCs and cheap RAM. In the past none of that was the case so printer manufacturers had to build all of the intelligence into the printers.
