Forms are stored in the printer so there is no server to configure and maintain. There is also a low initial investment for a small number of printing devices. The Lexmark forms and bar code card is designed to accept electronic forms generated using Lexmark forms composer and saved in flash memory or hard disk in printers. Merge and quickly print forms using only the variable ASCII text data transmitted over the network. This card monitors incoming ASCII, SAP RDI or PCL data. In the event that incoming data contains a pattern consistent with conditions set in a resident electronic form, a form merge process is initiated. This card works with Ethernet networks for any host using ASCII, SAP RDI or PCL data. It also supports PCL and PostScript command access for many industry standard one- and two-dimensional bar codes.
