Allen Datagraph has tested several USB to Serial devices
available on the market and found that most do not work in
our application as a printer driver output device. We recommend
using only the BAFO-800 or BAFO-810 USB to Serial Converters.
You may order this device directly from Allen Datagraph at
the Phone Number below. New cutters ship with a Bafo 810 external
usb to serial device.
The usb drivers are on the CD supplied with the cutter. If
you need the drivers you can also download the driver here
and run the setup.
Download USB driver version
220.127.116.11 Note: latest bafo driver will not work with older
versions of the bafo 810. You have to install 18.104.22.168. See tsb below if you get
a later version installed and you cannot communicate.
Title: How to get right driver version
Abstract: Prolific has released a new driver for the bafo 810 that does
not work with our usb to serial's that we have shipped. This problem
happens on windows vista, 7 and windows 8. When you install a new
device it checks with the internet and installs the latest driver
that does not work from the internet. Also automatic updates
will update the driver to the driver that does not work.
