Filter Programmes and Plugins for BENS Printservers
Filters and plugins are programmes serving the process control. Filters and plugins can at all times be uploaded with the server’s board means and put into use immediately.
The BENS Barcode Filter is PCL-compatible and can, for example, be immediately used by SAP® users. No adjustments have to be made on the SAP® System.
The Unicode Filter enables the printing of data on printers that are either not Unicode-enabled or possess no corresponding font type.
The Prescribe PCL Filter converts Prescribe print data into PCL print data. This filter is very performant and converts the Prescribe print data into PCL print data without any loss of time that would be noticeable for the user. The barcode conversion is already integrated.
PCL Macros are printing modules that can be repeatedly used in printing. They can be integral parts of a print image, such as for example logos for footers. Or they can be entire layouts, as for example forms, letter templates or GTCs.
The Carbon Copy Filter is used to realise carbon copies, meaning that each single page of a print document is immediately repeatedly printed or the entire document is repeatedly printed. The number of copies can be pre-set.
This filter allows printing of the standardised, optically readable fonts OCR-A and OCR-B.
The BENS DataCompress Filter compresses printer data up to factor 1:8 for a cost-effective transfer via WAN-lines, for example from Europe to China.
The BENS Font Filter uses BENS as a common printer memory, in which fonts for al printers can be saved and used.
The BENS CleverPrint Filter encourages economic an ecologic printing by forcing the Duplex-, black/white and ECO-printing, even when users have made deviating settings on the printer driver.
The BENS SplitSpool Filter separates spool files into several different print jobs so that these can individually be processed further (e.g. stapled or enveloped.
With the BENS MergeJobs Filter several different print jobs are joined into one single print job. This facilitated handling a large number of small jobs and decidedly enhances the printer’s performance that does no longer have to reset after each job.
Supports printing into electronic printer boxes from systems that offer no such variety (e.g. SAP®).
Apart from the typical print protocols, BENS also offers a print protocol compatible with IOS® devices (iPad®, Iphone®). The BENS-Administrator can release single printers for the printing from IOS®-devices.
The BENS Follow me function saves a user’s print jobs until he calls them on a printer via a web-browser with authentication and then has them printed.
Customized Filter are programs not part of the current BENS standard, but were especially developed at a customer’s specifications
