Click Next to view the license agreement.

Select the corresponding model of printer driver, taking GP-9035T as an example.

Select the communication port and select different ports according to different data connection lines.

Parallel port connection Please select LPT, according to the expansion of the machine to choose the port.

Serial cable connection Please select COM, according to the expansion of the machine to choose the port.

USB cable connection Please select USB, please note that because the USB interface is the system virtual printing port, in the actual operation process, it is necessary to ensure that the printer USB cable is connected and the printer is turned on. If a computer is installed with multiple printers connected to a USB cable, there may be multiple USB ports, such as USB001, USB002,..., USB005, etc. If the printer cannot be printed after the driver is installed, the port adjustment is required.

If you are using a network port, select Add a TCP/IP port as follows:

Enter the printer's 'IP address' as shown below.

Then select 'Custom' - 'Settings', as shown below, confirm the following message and select 'OK'.

Then select 'Next' as shown below.

Finally select 'Finish' to successfully add the Ethernet communication port. And to choose from, as shown below:

If you select the serial port (COM port), you need to select the port tab in the completed driver property page and then 'Configure Port'.

If there are multiple USB virtual ports in the driver port when using USB connection, as shown below:

Follow these steps to try connecting to the printer:

First, click on 'Print Test Page' in the 'General' tab of the printer properties

Then, check the status of the print job. If the normal test page disappears within a short period of time and the printer has a print action, if the port is incorrect, the status "Error - Printing" will appear. As shown below:

Go back to the 'Ports' tab in the printer properties, tick another USB virtual port, click 'Apply' in the lower right corner, wait, the test page task will restart, if the port corresponds to, the task will disappear and the printer will The print action, if still an error, repeats the above check until the print job is completed.

After these steps, the driver installation is complete.

If you cannot find the corresponding icon in the printer and fax after the installation is complete, use the Add Printer method:

Click to install from disk

Click Browse: Find the .inf file in the driver folder, as follows:

Specify a printer name and print a test page:

After the printer driver is installed, the icon will appear in the printer and fax.

Detailed use of the driver.

Set the correct paper parameters and printing method:

Open the printer's Properties window as shown below.

Click on 'Printing Preferences'

The 'Print Speed' and 'Print Density' are adjusted according to the actual paper and consumables used, especially when using hot-transfer printing, the pairing of speed and density has an effect on the printing results.

In the 'Size' field, enter the size of the actual paper or print range. If it is a label, it will only indicate the size of the printable area, not the backing.

Click the 'Advanced Settings' tab

Depending on the type of paper you are actually using, select "Pitch" if there are sheets of paper with a spacing, "Black" if you have a black label on the back, and "Continuous" if you select a continuous paper.

It is best to keep the default settings in the Media Settings column because the printer automatically detects which media to use when the printer is turned on, and subsequent printing will continue to print based on the current media. Manually specify a method if needed. In the option column, the setting of the paper stay position after the specified task is completed. "None" indicates that the printing is stopped after completion of the task without any operation. "Pick-off" will turn on the front-end paper presence sensor and will stop after each print, until the user intervenes to remove the printed label and then print the next print. This setting is applicable to printers with a peeling device, such as GP- 3150TN. Cut, whole batch and partial cut functions GP printers are not currently supported.

Click on 'Others'

Adjust the "Length" parameter in the "Pitch/Black Mark" column, and adjust this parameter according to the height of the gap between the label and the label on the label paper used by the user.

After completing the above settings, click OK to exit the preference setting. Click the Print Test Page in the "General" tab of the driver properties to observe the print quality after the above settings, and determine whether the paper material and size match.

Adjustment of label content offset:

After the correct parameter is set, the label may be shifted due to the label being too small or the label is inaccurate. If the user has no more margin to move in the editing interface, the following parameters can be accurately corrected:

If the label is just above or below the label, select the printer 'Properties' - 'Printing Preferences' - 'Advanced Settings' with the label in the 'Options' column Offset parameter settings, this parameter can be filled in positive or negative. Taking the machine's paper exit direction as a reference, the positive value is the reverse offset, and the negative value is the positive offset. After adjustment, multiple observation offsets can be printed consecutively.

If the label content is skewed in addition to the top and bottom, you can select the printer 'Properties' - 'Printing Preferences' - '-' Advanced Settings '--' - ' 'Other', set the coordinate reference point offset. If the orientation of the label is only vertical, the origin of coordinates is in the upper left corner of the paper exit direction. If the orientation is rotated 180 degrees in the vertical direction, the origin is in the lower right corner of the paper exit direction. Similarly, if the orientation is selected only in landscape orientation, the origin is in the upper right direction of the exit direction. The angle of 180 degrees in the horizontal direction is in the lower left corner of the paper exit direction. This parameter only accepts positive values, so please carefully select the direction and offset when adjusting, and use as much as possible with the above label offset to achieve the desired effect.

There are areas on the label that you do not want to print:

There may be some parts of the user's use of customized labels, usually printed areas in the peripheral area or areas that do not want to print anything, which can be achieved by setting the following parameters:

Select the printer 'Properties'--'Printing Preferences'--'Options', have non-printing area parameters, and fill in the corresponding parameters by referring to the area size.

Graphic effect adjustment:

Select Printer Properties - Printing Preferences -> Jitter

Printed graphics have different print quality when different types are selected. According to the actual effect of self-adjustment.

Barcode fonts and command font settings:

This setting is mainly used when the corresponding font is specified in the application. It can be converted into barcode or direct command in the printer. Select Printer Properties - Printing Preferences -> Bar Code Fonts

You can create or change the defined barcode font. The parameters include the barcode type, direction, size, ID, aspect ratio, and so on. The command font also has similar adjustments. As shown below:

The bar code printer used for printing the claim labels used in the iCrEAM project is: Zebra 888-TT. The product image is as follows:

The parameters are as follows:

2, bar code printer cable

Zebra 888-TT barcode printer can use RS-232 port, parallel port and USB port to connect data cables. Currently, for the iCrEAM project, we use the USB port cable (also called USB to serial port cable or USB TO COM cable). Connect one end of the computer to a USB port, and then connect the cable with a trapezoidal end at the end of the printer. The specific product image is as follows:

If you buy a bar code printer that does not come with such a data cable, please go to Computer City and other places to purchase it yourself. The price varies from 10 yuan to the next, and the quality is also different. Please consider it as appropriate.

3, related supplies

The zebra 888-TT uses 10*10CM thermal paper and matching ribbons, which are purchased and replaced after use.

Second, the driver installation

1, USB TO COM driver installation:

Open the USB TO COM driver (PL2303_Prolific_DriverInstaller_v110.exe)

, Follow the prompts to install directly until it is completed.

After the installation is complete, turn on the printer and plug the USB port of the data cable into the USB port on the computer.

At this time, the device manager looks for

To the hardware device, the port number is displayed.

At this point, the printer and USB-to-COM port driver complete the installation, in theory, can now be bar code printing.

1, only initialize the printer built-in program: Press and hold the above green button to boot, wait for the lights on the button to flash five times and let go,

The machine will print a self-test page and initialize it.

2. Initialize and rectify the sensor: Press and hold the above green button to turn on, wait until the light on the button flashes seven times and then let go, the printer will

Will be the initial words. And correct the sensor.

Green button

Corresponding to a new printer is recommended to perform initialization operations first.


Barcode printing configuration

After loading the usb to com driver, barcode printing can be implemented. If no configuration is made at this time, the system adopts the default printing method to automatically obtain the port.

Here's how to configure it.

Enter fault management page

Select the second button, bar code print configuration

When printing, you can choose to automatically obtain the port or manually obtain the port

Obtain the port automatically: The USB port of the serial cable is inserted into any USB port on the computer, and the system automatically recognizes the port number. use

This method can't connect other serial devices to the computer. Otherwise, the system cannot identify which one is the bar code printer. Note:

It is not possible to use a serial device at the same time, that is, the peripheral is connected with a nine-pin jack, while the usual peripherals such as a USB flash drive

Mobile hard disks, mobile phones, etc. are not serial devices and can be connected to a computer with a bar code printer at the same time.

Manually obtain the port: The COM number of the configuration port must be the same as the USB port number of the serial cable plugged into the computer.

The Ports column in the Device Manager, view the currently connected port number. With this method the computer can connect it simultaneously

He serial device.

As shown in the figure, the configuration is to manually obtain the port, then the configuration of the port number here must be consistent with the port number in the device manager. Device Manager View Method:

Right click on the desktop [My Computer]> [Properties]

Find Device Manager on the Hardware tab and click to enter

Prolific USB-to-Serial Comm Port (COM4) is the port number we connect to the computer. Both sides are COM4.

You can find a port according to your needs during manual configuration, but you must ensure that the port settings in the configuration are the same as those in the device manager. Users can choose the above two ways to obtain the port according to the actual situation. After the selection, click OK. The system will save the user's choice. When the next time you print again, the barcode will be printed in this saved configuration mode. Configure it.

Note: If the user enters the system for the first time and no configuration is performed, the system prints barcodes automatically by default.

V. Troubleshooting

1. The scanner does not recognize the bar code: There may be some unavoidable situations in the printer, such as cold weather, when printing.

The temperature of the print head is not enough, or the quality of carbon paper is a problem. When printing, a missing piece of the barcode is generated. If you encounter this problem, please re-play the barcode label until the barcode is clearly visible.

2. If multiple labels are printed consecutively or the printed labels are blank: Please check whether the "Corrupted matters description" (corresponding to the damage reason printed on the claim label) of the corresponding claim form is filled in too long. It is normally 78 characters. 70 characters or less!

3, other situations: please contact the system administrator, customer service support and other related personnel consultation!
