Network Connect Printer Software

On the plant floor, being “on-time”, every time is of utmost importance. Integrating printing can be cumbersome, inefficient and expensive, especially if the printers connect through the enterprise network. Zebra’s Network Connect printer software for Link-OS printers cuts the cost, complexity and time needed to integrate a printing solution with your Rockwell® PLC.

Zebra’s ODVA™-certified printer option provides the full Ethernet/IP protocol support needed to connect a printer directly to a Rockwell PLC, without the need for a converter box. Our “Add-On-Profile” makes it simple to create solutions using Rockwell's Studio 5000® development environment, including both print template filling and printer status checking. This unique solution reduces the time it takes for developers to integrate a Zebra printer.
