SAP® Device Types
Canon Store: $
When paired with the correct Canon Device Types, organizations running SAP will not only enjoy the high quality performance of Canon's devices, but also extended finishing features such as:
Designate Output Tray
Designate Page Orientation
Designate paper Sources
Set Number of Copies
A Device Type is a configuration file that is used to control options available on supported Canon devices, such as designating input tray, determining page orientation, setting number of prints/copies, determining print mode such as duplexing and setting paper sizes.
SAP's printing sub-system bypasses the device driver and generates the PCL/PS data independently. To add the device control options to the PCL/PS data stream, we must use the Device Type.
Standard Device Types and Device Type Extensions for legacy models released prior to 2009 are available on Canon U.S.A. website (www.usa.canon.com) in the Drivers & Software section and are directly supported by Canon. Supported devices are listed in the Features section and in the SAP Supported Device List, available under Brochures & Manuals section.
Device Types for devices released 2009 and after are available exclusively from SAP website and supported by SAP directly. Supported devices are listed in the SAP Supported Device List, available under Brochrues & Manuals section. Please contact your SAP representatives for inquiries and guidance on Device Type downloads from SAP website.
Initially, the standard Device Types were developed by SAP and offered basic feature functionality such as input tray, duplex/simplex, paper size, orientation, and copies. The extended Device Types were developed by Canon Inc. to offer additional functionality such as staple, hole punch and output bin selection. Then the Device Type functionalities were combined and are available in one zip file as Standard Device Type available in Canon U.S.A websites.
Simply, extended Device Types are for older models and are still available on this website for download. These devices are listed in the Features section and in the SAP Supported Device List, available under Brochures & Manuals section.
