GPT-4454

The GPT-4454 is a new 4" front panel printer. This printer accomodates the demands of modern communication technology in all aspects. A wide range of interfaces (RS232/422/485/TTL, Centronics, USB, IR, and Bluetooth®) are supported. In addition, the system controller is able to connect a substancial repertoire of peripheral options, such as a clock with event timer, bar code readers, or magnetic card readers, to the host, therefore offering the user an extremely high versatility. This printer is a true alternative to A4 printers in the industrial field.

 

 

Descriptive

A True Alternative to A4 Printers
This 4" front panel printer with Easy Paper Loading function is able to print text as well as graphics in excellent quality of 203 dpi with a print speed of up to 50mm/sec on 114 mm paper width. With 832 horizontal pixels, this thermal printer is ideal for all documentation in industrial applications, since it enables VGA screenshots of control displays vertically, and XVGA screenshots in horizontal format.
With its robust paper feeder, it works with 80 µm thick thermal paper and a paper roll diameter of up to 60 mm. With an installation depth of only 47 mm, this visually pleasing and very light printer can be easily integrated in POS, POI, or industrial applications. 

Offering Maximum Peripheral Options
Thanks to sophisticated power management, the printer can be operated with a battery for mobile applications. The charging circuit is located on the controller board, which also controls the charging process.
Data is communicated through the latest wireless interfaces, such as infrared or Bluetooth® wireless technology.
Particularly in mobile applications, or if there is a lack of interfaces at the host, the transparent handing over of data from a bar code scanner, a magnetic card reader, or an additional keyboard through the wireless interfaces of the controller can be of an advantage. 

Expanded Operating Voltage Range for Automotive Applications
By default, the printer can be operated with voltages between 5V DC and 8.5V DC. A DC/DC converter that expands the operating range to 18 - 36V DC is available as an option, allowing operation with car batteries. 

Availability
OEM customers integrate GPT-4454 printers into their own design. This also shows the high flexibility of the print system made and developed in Germany. Private labeling or custom housing colors can be realized, even for small order quantities.
