Gestetner Laser Systems Products


Gestetner produced a series of Laser Printers in the mid-eighties which went out of production around 1990. These machines are no longer supported by Gestetner and thus we do not produce or provide printer drivers for them. However, these machines were built to be either PCL or Postscript compliant and so the following drivers can be used.

GLX600, GLX800 or GLX810 use the standard "HP Laserjet Series II driver".

GRX820 "Scout" or "Hurricane" use the standard "Apple LaserWriter II NT".

Note, there was an upgrade kit for the GLX range that would improve their ripping speed. This effectively made the machine a GRX.

If you install the correct driver (as above) and the machine does not work. It may be that the Bios settings of your computer need to be adjusted. Most modern computers have more than one setting for LPT, the names vary by manufacturer, but generally there will be a "Standard Printer Port" (SPP) setting which should be used for these models.
