The printer name is based on the place where the printer is located and on its type.
For example: on the first floor you can find ps1lc

  • ps = it is an abbreviation to identify all the network printers;
  • 1 = floor. Level number;
  • l = zone. This is the first letter of the word left (standing with your back to the sea), m is for middle (in the center of the building), r is for right.
  • c = type. There is a c because it is a color printer. The black and white (b/w) printers have no letters after the zone letter.
