I have two USB Zebra label printers, same make and model. Each is loaded with a different type of label. I would like to connect them both to the same computer, via a switch box. This way, the computer will think there is one printer connected, and I can switch it back and forth to either printer, depending on the label type I need.
The label printing software we're using only allows one printer to be set up, that's why we need the switch box. It's not practical to replace the software at this point. We could also hook up one printer, and manually swap the labels as needed, but we're trying to avoid that.
We looked at this switchbox 2 PC to 1 USB 2.0 Device AB Switch Box from Amazon, but it lets two computers share the same printer, which is not what we need.
In the days of parallel port printers, these "A/B" style switch boxes were fairly common.
