Printing Pine 125X Data from Specimen Compaction

“The DOT now requires that we print the compaction data directly from the gyro.  We use a 125X.  Can you help me?”

Yes, we can help you.

We provide an explanation of related topics for a Pine 125X Superpave gyratory compactor with upgraded controls in a 3-part blog series.  Printouts and screenshots shown are from revision V18.08a of the control software.

The first article discusses the basics—the data collected, 125X file capacity, data exporting options, file types, and file naming convention.

The second blog presents saving Pine 125X data to a USB flash drive or a PC.

This third publication describes printing Pine 125X data.


Printing directly from a Pine 125X requires a PCL-compatible printer.  The Pine 125X runs on an industrial computer that does not have Windows drivers required for printing to most printers.  Contact Pine for a printer proven to work with your gyratory compactor.


The 125X with upgraded controls offers three direct printout options—Narrow Format Report, Wide Format Report-Brief, and Wide Format Report-Full.

The Narrow Format Report presents height and pressure by gyration.  Pine recommends only using the Narrow Format Report with a receipt style printer.

The Wide-Brief Format Report provides only height data per gyration.
