COMPATIBLE PRINTERS FOR ETS SYSTEMS

Each brand of ETS master system requires a compatible printer to print out the basketing list and clocking list. A specific printer is required because it must be able to compose its own pages without relying on a computer to carry out the role. Union rules specifically state that a computer can not be connected to the master during the basketing and read-out process in order to eliminate the opportunity of malicious software present on the computer manipulating the times.

A compatible printer must have two specifications;
  • A Parallel Port (IEEE1284)
  • A Print Language of PCL6.

Printers that satisfy these requirements are generally regarded as business machines which continue to be produced by all leading printer manufacturers and are readily available. These will be laser printers that will give excellent quality printing at a relatively low cost per page.

Compatible models include:
BROTHER HL-5240D, HL-5340D and HL-5440D
EPSON EPL6200
OKI B410d and B2400
SAMSUNG ML3470d
