4 Installation
4.1 Installation in a front panel
The plastic housing of the GPT-4352 printer can be
installed with two screws in an easily done cut-out of a
front panel with up to 4mm thickness. The contact
surface is flat. The edge of the housing juts out by
1 mm, covering the space between the panel and the
housing.
The housing is pushed into the cut-out from the outside,
and then easily screwed on.
The two holes of 2.8 mm diameter allow the use of
M2.5 screws.
4.2 Partial installation in plastic casing
As shown in the picture, the printer housing can also be
installed at the edge of a casing. This installation variant
has the part of the printer housing that contains the
paper roll extending beyond the unit casing. This saves
room in the device casing for the installation of other
components.
To facilitate installation in different casing shapes, the
outer wall of the paper storage was left smooth below
the bearing collar. The housing can project about 19mm
from the casing edge, since about half of the paper
storage can be used, right up to the slanting slot for
inserting the mounting plate.
4.3 Example for installation and application
As the pictures show, the installation types are almost
unlimited. The advantage of the compact thermal printer
Mini Mulde in its plastic housing consists above all of
the fact that it becomes possible to use the practical
Easyloading technology of the printer mechanisms also
in applications with smaller numbers of items.
For this small GeBE-printer a paper rewinder is
available, so that also a printer with presentation stage,
like shown above, can be used e.g. in a control panel
Application in a pocket printer with infrared interface.
housing. The Mini MULDE is used also in the Desktop
Printer Series POCKET and is suitable for Handheld
computers with printing station.

Connecting the Printer
5 Connecting the Printer
During installation:
Always disconnect from power!
5.1 Connecting the power supply (3)
The printer can be supplied with fixed voltage from a power supply
or a battery. Battery or power supply are plugged into the same
connector. Through the voltage supply connection, the printer can
be supplied with voltages between 3.5 V (for printers with Centronics adapters with 4.5 V) and 6.6 V. The supply for the logic chip is
produced on the board. The power cable GKA-410, included in sets
1 and 3, is connected to the connector J4 (3 red wires for + 3.5 -6.6
VDC, 3 black grounding wires, and one white cable for an NTC 6.8
kOhm of a Ni-MH battery). For simple power connections, the white
wire remains unconnected. We recommend keeping the length of
the line as short as possible. The longer the line, the higher the line
resistance, causing bad print quality or even printer failure.
Avoid confusing the connection poles, because it can cause
immediate damage to the printer. Carefully check the power
supply connection before you turn on the printer.
Designations:
1 Infrared (if equipped)
2 Connection winder
3 Connection power
4 SPI
5 Connection charger (Akku)
6 Connection RS232 / V.24
5.2 Power Down
Starting with hardware version V1.4c the standard version does not support the power-off mode.
The controller comes with different levels of power saving modes (power down modes):
• Idle mode (8 mA typical)
• Sleep mode (20 µA typical)
• Power-off mode (0.1 µA typical), optional configuration required
During the receiving of data and during printing the controller is in an active status.
With the parallel interface, the ballast resistor R35 is not part of the standard configuration.
Connect jumper J3 for idle mode.
Remove jumper J3 for sleep mode.
Power-off logic ist not in the standard configuration (replaced by R37).
5.3 Connecting the Charger (5)
EVAL printers have a standard charging circuit for 4 Ni-MH cells. An operation with 3 or 5 cells is also possible.
The charging is performed by the uncontrolled plug-in power supply GNG-9V-0,6A-CC-EU-AC that has a special
internal resistance. It is connected through the cable GKA-416 to the connector J1. The charging time for a 1600
mA/h battery will be about 5 hours. During the charging process, the LED on the control panel will display different
pulses that show, whether the fast or trickle charging mode is active.
Never use a fixed-voltage power supply for charging the batteries. The charging circuit is a "simple switch control",
meaning that the current limitation is not done in the charge control of the printer, but in the plug-in power supply.
Please use the suitable GeBE power supply GNG-9V-0,6A-CC-EU-AC. In case of technical questions, please contact the GeBE technic support (see chapter 17).

Printer Configuration
6 Printer Configuration
6.1 Configuration over Initialisation-TextPreserve "TINIT" (Software Switch)
All commands for initializing the controller are filed in the text file "TINIT". TINIT is available in the flash memory of
the printer and in the EEPROM (Note: Low-priced controllers with minimal functionality may not have an
EEPROM). An entry in the EEPROM cancels entries in the Flash. For example, if a printer is to print double height
and inverse in data mode, the relevant commands are entered in the text file "TINIT". After a RESET, the controller
will first carry out its basic initialization, read the solder bridge settings, and then process the commands in the
"TINIT". Therefore, the commands in the "TINIT" have final authority regarding the valid settings. Custom settings
can also be achieved through entries in the text file "TINIT". If an EEPROM is available, "TINIT" can also be
altered through an interface.
The basic initialization of the controller corresponds with the following instructions that are initially not entered in
the "TINIT: <ESC> "A"; <ESC> "D" "0"; <ESC> "H" "0"; <ESC> "I" "0";
<ESC> "L" "0"; <ESC> "M" "0"; <ESC> "N" 0 0; <ESC> "P" 1; <ESC> "S"0; <ESC> "W" "0".

7.2 USB Interface
USB Printer Class
The USB device class is "Printer Class". When plugged
in, the PC will report "USB printer support" and install a
"USB001"USB port.
Either the standard printer driver of the "system78" or
the port monitor can be used. During installation of the
printer driver, it can be easily guided onto the USB port.
Windows®XP and Windows®CE handle the
numeration of a printer differently. Therefore, the
printer must be conficurated to the operating
system before delivery.

Infrared Interfaces
7.4 Infrared Interfaces
IrDA Protocol
The printer works with the protocol service IrLPT. Here
the printer doesn't send back.
A bidirectional Service "IrCOMM 9 wire" ist available on
request.
The following protocols can be used:
• IrDA:
IR LPT (printer service)
IR COMM 9 wire (optional)
Also see: www.irda.org
• GeBE-IR:
Simple, error-proof, bidirectional,
dot to dot IR-protocol.
GeBE-Doc.No. MAN-D-394
• HP-IR:
Unidirectional IR transmission
GeBE-Doc.No. MAN-D-416
All standard versions of the printer have the hardware
for an IR transmitter/receiver installed, so the protocols
GeBE-IR and IrDA are available for all standard printers
of the series GPT-4352(-60) .
The internal IR tranceiver is installed directly below the
red foil window (10). The GPT-4352(-60) has an LED
next to the transceiver that signals any Infrared
communication. It is important to consider that infrared
transmissions only work "at sight". The radiation angle
is about +/-15 degrees. The transfer distance, which
also strongly depends on the efficiency of the opposite
side, is about 0.6 meter.
Use of the Sleep Mode
In the setting "IrDA "or "GeBE IR", the IR receiver will
even be active in the sleep mode, so the device will not
have to be switched on explicitly for printing. The power consumption of the printer is only about 25 µA in
this mode. However, the printer should still be turned
off during long periods of inactivity.
GeBE -IR Protocol
The GeBE-Ir protocol is a simple, error protected
infrared protocol. The data transmission is processed in
CRC protected blocks.
With each transmission confirmation, the printer status
is sent back to the host.
The implementation is easy to realize. The protocol is
disclosed.

In the menu setting, the selected baud rate represents
the maximum baud rate. If 57,600 baud is selected, for
example, the printer will start to communicate with
9,600 baud and then switch up to 57,600 or 38,400
baud, depending on the transmitter.
The maximum baud rate of 115,200 should only be
reduced, if transmission problems occur.
When an infrared transmission is interrupted, the
printer will look for the transmitting master device for
about 20 seconds in order to complete the transmission. After that, the stack is reset, and new inquiries are
answered.

Bluetooth® Wireless Technology
7.5 Bluetooth® Wireless Technology
The GPT-4352(-60) with BT meets the BT specification
V1.1 class 2, attaining a transmission range of about 10
to 15 m. On free field longer ranges can be reached.
The printer can be operated with a customary BT
dongle that comes with a virtual COM port driver.
A RS232 remote receiver is available on request.
Operation
The printer responds to an inquiry scan with its name
"GPT-4352" and its BT address. However, it can also be
addressed directly, without a scan, with its BT address.
A "BT connect" activates the printer. The printer will
maintain a connection until it goes into sleep mode. The
online power consumption of the printer with an active
BT link is about 35 mA. The sleep mode disconnects an
active connection and activates the BT sniff mode. In
this mode, the printer scans its environment for
possible calls every 1.25 seconds. During these inquiry
scans, it remains visible and responsive. It will then take
about 2-3 seconds to establish a connection.
The power consumption in this mode is about 21 mA.
When the printer is reactivated through the feed button,
the BT tranceiver will remain in sniff mode. The power
consumption in this mode is about 7 mA. After the set
time period, the printer will go back into sleep mode.
We recommend to set the sleep time to "1 minute".
If you are not planning to operate the printer for several
days, switch it off with the OFF/NEXT key. After the power is turned on, it will take a minimum of 10 seconds
for the printer to become ready to receive data.
The printer does not ask the master for any authentication. Should your transmitter require a PIN number,
type in "0000".
Please always set your printer to 115,200, n, 8,1.

8 Operation
8.1 Which thermal paper is suitable?
The printer is specified for a paper width of 57.0 ± 0.5 mm, with a weight
of 60 g/sqm. GeBE is offering suitable paper rolls (GPR-T01-058-031-007060A resp. GPR-T01-058-060-007-060A for GPT-4352-60) as part of the
standard program. Other papers may not be suitable for use.
1.
Which side of the thermal paper can be printed on?
On the paper roll, the side to print on is, in almost all cases, the outside.
If you should have any doubts, just do the fingernail test:
Quickly drive the edge of a fingernail with slight pressure over the paper.
The thermosensitive side will turn black as a result of the frictional heat.
Thermal papers that are resistant against water, grease, or alcohol are
available for special applications. We will gladly assist you in your
selection of the suitable thermal paper.
How do I insert the paper?
Use paper rolls that are coated on the outside with a width of 57.0 ± 0.5
mm and a winding diameter of 31 mm and 60 mm for GPT-4352-60.
Standard GPT-4352:
GPR-T01-058-031-007-060A
Standard GPT-4352-60: GPR-T01-058-060-007-060A
1. Unwind about 10 cm (4") of paper from the roll. Keep the layers wound
tightly.
2. Open the printer cover by slightly pressing the LEVER in the cover
upwards. The print roll is lifted from the mechanism together with the
cover. The cover is now easy to open.
3. Insert the paper roll in the paper storage, so the outside shows toward
the printer mechanism. Only this outside can be printed on.
4. Close the cover by applying strong pressure. You can hear it snap shut.
Now you can rip off paper at the tear bar without the cover opening up
or the paper sliding through the print head.
8.2 Maintenance, cleaning
2.
3.
4.
After larger print efforts, depending on the paper quality and adverse
environmental conditions, it may be necessary to clean the print head,
sensor, and the platen roll, especially, if some areas are no longer printed
properly.
• Open paper supply lid and remove paper roll.
• Loosen dirt particles at the paper sensor and the tear-off bar with a
small brush.
• Blow forcefully into the paper supply compartment in order to remove
the coarse dust.
On principle the printer has to be kept dust-free.
• Soak Q-tip in isopropanol (IPA) and clean the print head, or use print
head cleaning pin/cleaning card.
• Other stubborn debris can also be removed with a Q-tip (IPA).
Never use sharp objects for cleaning. This might cause damage to the
print head.
Do not touch the print head. This might cause damage through
electrostatic charge.

9.1 Description of the key functions
The keys can have different functions depending on the
status – normal operation or print settings menu. The
time for which the button is held down is also an issue.
FEED / ENTER button (1)
Through this key, the printer can be reactivated from
sleep mode, and the paper can be transported forward.
When the feed key is pressed, the printer will first feed
one line of the set font. If the key is held down for more
than 2 seconds, it will feed continuously.
Self Test
With this, the printer functions can be tested through a
printout. To start the self test the FEED Button {FEED}
(1) has to be held down for more than 3 seconds when
waking up the printer out of the Power OFF mode. The
interfaces won't be tested in this case. Software version
and character set will be printed out. For OEM special
printouts can be activated during this operation self
test.

LED "STATUS" (green/red) (4)
The STATUS LED will flash green slowly, when everything is in order. It will flash red in regular intervals in case of a
failure. During fast charging, the STATUS LED will flash green in regular intervals, while it permanently glows green
during trickle charge.
Status messages of the printer through the interfaces
Besides the optical status messages displayed by the three LEDs on the control panel of the printer, messages are
also transmitted through the serial interface. Most of the time, they are sent as single ASCII characters that can be
analyzed by the host.

Batch Files
12 Batch Files
Almost all commands that the printer can receive
through the interfaces and then perform can be put into
the batch files. When a batch file is processed, the
commands it contains are added to the data stream of
the print program sequentially, as if they were coming
through the interface from outside. This way, all settings
that can be done by command can be processed via
batch file. Besides settings commands, batch files can
also contain text and graphics.
The file structure consists of one TINIT, which is processed with each system boot-up, as well as 10 files that
can be used freely, which are retrieved by command.
Some of these files can be addressed through additional events. If the controller has an EEPROM, it contains
a file structure that is identical to that of the program
memory (Flash).
When a filed is retrieved, the printer will check, if it contains data in the EEPROM. If it does not, the file will be
processed in the Flash. This allows Flash files to be
over-written.
The following batch files are accessable:
Allocated in the Flash Memory, Factory Settings:
• "TINIT" ...settings after hardware RESET
• "T0 " .....self test through FEED key after reset
• "T1 " .....form feed through NEXT key <1 sec.
• "T2 " .....power-off through OFF key >3 sec.
• "T3 - T9" : unused
By using these files in the EEPROM you are changing the standard factory settings.
12.1 Text or Graphics, Batch Files in the
EEPROM
For the printing of text and graphics, the GPT-4352(-60)
has an 8 kB EEPROM (app. 6 kB can be used for logos), and the GPT-4352(-60) has a 32 kB EEPROM
(app. 30 kB can be used for logos).
It is recommended to store logos PCL compressed.
By using the Windows driver, compression rates of app.
3 - 4:1 can be achieved.
For comparison: Uncompressed full graphics of 5 cm
length take up 20 kB, while they only require app. 5.7
kB when compressed.
Creating and Saving Logos:
A special printer driver is available for creating logos.
12.2 Configuration of the Printer with
TMenu and TINIT
After a hardware RESET (connecting the power supply),
the printer will check for a prescribed TMenu and/or
TINIT in the EEPROM. If it finds one or both, it will
process the batch file commands and will then be
ready for operation. If not, it will process the TMenu
and/or the TINIT containing the factory settings in the
Flash.
12.3 TMenue
The OPD-Menue® is a printer function that allows the
user to edit the TMenu in the EEPROM. The TMenu can
only be changed through the OPD Menue®.

TMenu. In the TINIT, other presets that were not incorporated in the menu can be executed. It also allows
settings to be blocked in the menu by repeating them
here.
The following TINIT file is an example of a file that can
be modified by the user. Please ask us for further information.
The file will erase the TINIT, while printing out all actions
in italic at the same time.
Any commands can be entered in the TINIT.

Option Magnetic Card Reader
13 Option Magnetic Card Reader
The magnetic card reader of the GPT-4352(-60)can be
used for magnetic cards of the type ISO 3554. It reads
up to 3 tracks simultaneously. The permissible swiping
speed is 10 - 100 cm/s.
The recording density and the number of bits per character differ from one track to the next according to ISO
3554. They determine the maximum number of characters including start and stop characters that can be recorded on each track:
Track
1
2
3
bpi
210
75
210
bit
7
5
5
Characters
79
40
107
In accordance with the norm, track 1 and 2 are just read
during operation.
Track 3 is the only one that is also used for recording.
Operation
After the swiping of the card, the LED lights up for
about 2 seconds, if the card was read correctly. If an error occured, the LED will flash rapidly 6 times.
While the LED is on, another reading process is not
possible. After the LED has gone out, the internal buffers are getting ready for the next reading process, waiting for a new card to be swiped.
The printer puts out the card data for each track with a
header. The data set is concluded with a check sum.
The card data per track contains:
- the number of data on this track
- status byte (type of error, if occured)
- data
A detailed description can be found in the software
manual.
Applications
Track 1 and 2 for credit cards
Track 2 and 3 for Eurocheque
Track 2 for access control
Track 3 for time recording
The Magnetic Carsd Reader can be combinated with:
USB, Bluetooth, RS232/TTl, und IrDA-9 wire
The Magnetic Carsd Reader can not be combinated
with:
HP-Ir, GeBE-Ir and IrDA IrLPT

Error Detection
21
15 Error Detection
Not every error means that there is a printer error that cannot be cleared by the user.
Users will save time and money by recognizing and clearing simple errors on their own.
The following tips are meant to help with this:
Symptom
Possible Cause
Remedy
Power Supply
The printer seems to be printing. Paper is transported, but
is not blackened.
Paper: Wrong side toward print head. Only
one side of the paper can be printed on.
Insert paper correctly. The thermosensitive side should be turned to the outside of the roll (most of the time). Try the finger
nail test: Drag the tip of a finger nail across the paper, pressing
down. The friction heat causes the thermosensitive side to blacken.
Check power supply.
Recharge battery. The green LED should light up no later than
after 1 minute.
Batteries: Different qualities are available. Only use batteries
that are able to supply high currents, and that have a high
energy capacity.
External power supply: Use power supply with sufficient dimension and short feed lines. Check all connections for possible transfer resistances. Since high peak currents occur with
thermal printers, even the smallest transfer resistances can result in intolerable voltage drops. In this case, no power supply
would be strong enough.
Printer can not be reactivated
by pressing the FEED key.
No power.
Rechargeable battery: not charged
Batteries: not inserted or empty
At the beginning of printing, the
LED goes out just briefly
The power supply is not optimal.
The printer only prints a few
dots in one line.
The paper feed works, but the
self test does not.
The printer only prints a few
characters in one line. If more
is entered, it stops printing
completely.
The printer loaded over night
however it prints only few or
not
Rechargeable battery: not charged.
Batteries: empty, bad quality,
no batteries inserted.
External power supply: Cross-section of
power feeding lines to small, Current output
of the power supply too low.
The rechargeable battery is used up or was
not correctly loaded. Each over-discharging
damages the battery strongly and leads to a
loss of capacity.

Fully discharged batteries can disturb the charging in such a
way that it breakes in at less than 30 minutes and switches to

by reputting. Please always switch off the printers if they
lengthen are not used and please load them every 3 months.
Use or check handshake. (software: Xon/Xoff or hardware:
CTS). If necessary: slow down transmission speed, e.g. down
to 1,200 baud.
Use correct interface level (RS232, TTL).
Is the transmission cable too long?
Select the correct baud rate through the menu. Check data
format.
Check and improve ground connection. Feed current through
short, thick lines.
Turn off "framing error ".
Measure the level of the cables. Ask GeBE for adaption.

Restart transmitter.
Turn off printer and wait for app. 5 seconds. Switch printer on
and wait for app. 10 seconds. Then search again.
Set virtual COM port according to installation instructions.
