The PC Station has a configuration item in the Pharos Administrator for which Devices it can release print jobs to, this is where you can tell a particular PC Station to only Device X or Y. This setting is located in the Administrator under Release Stations > [select_a_station] > at the bottom expand Printing > "Related Printers".
If the PC Station is configured with more than one device it will randomly load balance between the two devices, there is no control in this scenario unless the relationship of the Queue - Print Group - Device is a 1 to 1 to 1. Then any jobs seen at the PC Station that came into said Queue, will always go to the 1 to 1 to 1 Device in the end. This is a way to have color jobs to color Queue/Print Group end up at a color Device associated to the PC Station, then do the same configuration for a monochrome job => device.
Just want to follow up on this and wondering if you had documentation on how you made this happen. We are also looking into finding alternatives to using older Window machines (we are currently using Dell Venues which limit us and can only handle 32bit OS), we are currently testing a Surface Go in production but are finding enclosures options for them not being the best and finding hiccups with mag stripe reader and Windows.
One option we looked at was leveraging our Citrix environment to publish desktops on the Chrome devices. At the end of the day it wasn't cost effective because it basically ties up a Citrix license for each release station. So sadly we use a older machine, Dell 7010s, in a locked down "kiosk" mode, to solve this issue.
