The PC-100B cradle seems to be a strip-down PC-100A. PC-100B_1.jpg (7501 Byte) In the battery compartment you'll notice a small metal plate instead the selection switch between the SR-52, SR-56 and Others. 

PC-100B_2.jpg (9370 Byte)If you lift off the metal plate the description of the switch will appear! 

PC-100B_3.jpg (8711 Byte)The PC-100B was replaced soon with the PC-100C.

The printed circuit board (PCB) is marked with: 

CPX-1

ASSY 1014858

This is identical to an early PC-100A cradle.

American Micro Products introduced with the Module Selector a very interesting product fitting into the charging bay of the PC-100B printer cradle.

Printer paper:

The thermal paper used with this printer (TP-30250 2-1/2" wide and 14 Feet length) was discontinued long time ago. In 2008 Appleton (Appleton, WI) manufactured with the Alpha 800-2.4 paper still a compatible paper.
