SAP Custom Device Types

Lexmark's custom device types for mySAP Business Suite solutions® enable support for more printer options and features than the standard SAP® device types. You can now address multiple paper input trays (up to 5) and multiple output bins (up to 11), print your documents in duplex mode, select the print resolution and select toner options.

Lexmark printers with Lexmark's Bar Code Card or the Forms and Bar Code Card option get even more powerful when you address them from your mySAP Business Suite e-business platform with Lexmark's custom device types, allowing you to create more than 47 one- or two-dimensional bar codes including PDF417 and MaxiCode.

Using custom device types, you can print images of multiple pages on one page to give you images of two, four, six, nine, twelve or even sixteen pages on one sheet of paper. This is called Multi-up or Multipage Printing and can be used independently of the SAP application. Multi-up printing can give you great savings on toner and paper reducing your printing expenses.

With the Lexmark device types you can make use of the finishing capabilities of the Lexmark finishers, including hole punching, stapling, offset or jogging of output without any additional programming.

Technical Description

SAP provides its own spooling and printing system within the mySAP Business Suite solution or SAP R/3® application to enable a uniform interface for all printing functions, independently of system platforms.

In the SAP R/3 spool system, a device type contains the information needed to format data for output on a particular type of printer or fax. A typical R/3 device type contains the same information that a printer driver does in a Microsoft Windows system -- all the information needed to make an output-ready data stream for the device.
