Mac thermal printer driver
Peninsula Group this week shipped a major update to its thermal printer drivers for Mac OS X, which allow Mac users to print directly to Thermal and Thermal Transfer printers. The drivers enable thermal transfer labeling printers from SATO, Citizen, Datamax, Eltron, TEC, UPS, Tharo, Brady, Peninsula, Intermec and Zebra to be used as standard printers on Mac OSX. Peninsula Thermal Printer Driver for OSX is a special set of printer drivers that enable use of standard print dialogs to various thermal transfer printers. The software adds controls for speed, temperature, print resolution, and other printer options and supports printer settings for all major printers as well as cutters and peelers inside the printers. The company also added a configuration utility to easily add printers to the Printer Setup Utility. The drivers support both over 400 printers from various manufacturers, including LPR printer servers and Bluetooth printers. Peninsula Thermal Printer Drivers are $250 and $84 for additional licenses.
