HP Printers - Device types for SAP printing

This document provides an overview of SAP printing support for PCL5-capable HP printers and SAP device types. It is intended primarily for system administrators in a business environment.

Device types are available for HP LaserJet Enterprise, HP LaserJet Managed, HP PageWide Enterprise, and HP PageWide Managed printers on the basis of PCL5 and PostScript support.

For PCL3 or host-based printers, go to SAP printing with PCL3 or host-based printers.


Use the HP v3 UPD for SAP printing with Device types. SAP printing with device types is not supported on current HP model specific discrete drivers supporting Windows 7 and later operating systems. The HP discrete drivers are based on the XPS driver architecture, which does not support the passthrough capabilities required for SAP printing using device types.

Use this document to determine which device types are recommended for your PCL5-capable printer(s).


SAP assumes first-tier support for these device types via its SAP Service Marketplace Web site. HP can neither support nor guarantee the functional performance of these device types. For problems with any device type, contact SAP customer support at
