- Keep printing normally
- Capture print data at PC USB Port
Use Model PT8 when you wish
to capture the print cable data to a PC but still allow the printer to continue
This may be required for good laboratory practice where electronic records must be kept. Or perhaps the user is phasing out
a dot matrix printer and needs both hardcopy and an electronic record until the printer is fully retired. The Model PT8 will then
serve as a dot matrix printer alternative.
