G4210 - why is the driver G4010?

I have a G4210 printer, why does it install the G4010 driver and is do all the printer models use a different model number? is there a mapping somewhere that shows each printer and the driver number?

Greetings,

Sometimes several models of a printer family or series share the same or similar hardware/software architechrue.

 

This allows a single driver package to be developed that supports many models from the same family. A device ID can identify the hardware being installed and tell the installation package what drivers are needed for the device to function.

Thanks, yes i understand. is there a mapping somewhere of the list of all models and which driver family they use? e.g. G4210 uses G4010?

 "A mapping somewhere"?... In the code, I'm sure there is.  You are welcome to try and decompile the package if you wish.  

 

The release notes may also offer addtional information.
