Printing with SIMATIC Comfort Panels

Task
By means of a control panel, it should be possible to output data such as a screenshot, a shift report or a fault messages report via a printer or an alternative.
It should be possible to print, independent from the manufacturer and type of the printer.
Solution 
To offer a solution as generally applicable as possible for printing data, new printer drivers were developed for SIMATIC Comfort Panels.
The "optional package printer driver" contains the following printer drivers:
  • PDF print (print as a PDF file)
  • HTML print (print as an HTML file)
  • PostScript print (print via any postscript-compatible printer)
  • Brother QL-650TD (thermo printer).
The following figure gives a schematic overview of the most important components of the solution:

Advantages
The "optional package printer driver" offers the following advantages for you.
  • You can print either in PDF or HTML file format.
  • By means of an integrated PDF viewer or the Internet Explorer, the printouts can be displayed directly at the control panel.
  • The storage path for the PDF and HTML printer driver can be changed over the desktop from the Comfort Panel .
  • Printing the PDF or HTML file via any printer you like.
  • Thanks to the postscript driver you are independent from the type of printer and from the manufacturer of the printer.
