Setting Up a Kyocera F-1200 or F-1200S

The Kyocera F-1200 and F-1200S are laser printers with parallel and serial interfaces. You can use the KYOF1200 device type for both printers. KYOF1200 uses the OTF_PRES driver (for Kyocera’s Prescribe printer language) for output from SAPscript word processing.

Using OCR-A Font Cartridges

Kyocera offers no OCR-A font cartridge for the Kyocera F-1200 and F-1200S laser printers. OCR-A font cartridges for this printer are available from independent software companies in Germany. SAP tested an F-1200s with an OCR-A cartridge from LaserPrint. The SAP device type for the F-1200 is designed for this cartridge (that is, the printer character set and the font command for the selection of the OCR-A typeface are cartridge–specific).

You will probably need to create your own device type definition for OCR-A printing if you use a different cartridge than SAP did. This is because the character set used by an OCR-A cartridge differs (different hexadecimal assignments) even among the three cartridges offered by LaserPrint.
