(3)
Print command (CR or LF)
In case of initiate parallel transmission, select code CR (0DH) or LF (0AH) on the DIP switch 2.
If the selected code (CR or LF) is input, the data in the print buffer is printed and line feed is performed.
When the serial interface is used, only the CR code becomes effective.
When graphic (mosaic) printing is performed, line feed is not performed by the print command, and graphic
(mosaic) printing is allowed on the next line.
Input data cancel command (CAN)
By entering the CAN (18H) code, all data entered prior to the entry of the code on a same line is canceled.
Enlarged character printing (SO)
By entering the SO (0EH) code on a specific digit, data entered there-after is output as enlarged characters.
The function is cleared by entering the print code (CR or LF) or DC4 (14H).
The number of printable columns per line for an entire line of enlarged characters are indicated in the table
below.

Power down function
In order to reduce power consumption when printer is waiting for the operation, 2 power down modes triggered
by the codes DC2 and DC3 are incorporated into this product. When the printer receives power down
commands (DC2 or DC3), it switches to the power down mode after all entered data is printed out.
a) DC2 (12H)
Unit switches to power down mode when DC2 code is entered. Operation of the oscillator is not
terminated.
b)
(5)
[Power down release]
(a-1) RESET input
By applying “LOW” pulse to the RESET terminal for more than 4ms, the power down mode is
cleared, thereby switching the unit to operational condition approximately 100ms after initialization.
DC3 (13H)
Unit switches to power down mode when DC3 code is entered.
Operation of the oscillator is terminated, reducing the power consumption to less than that of the DC2
power down mode.
[Power down release]
(b-1) RESET input
By applying “LOW” pules to the RESET terminal for more than 4ms, the power down mode is
cleared, thereby in HIGH-level switching the unit to operational condition approximately 100ms after
initialization.
Escape control command
By entering ESC (1BH) followed by an ASCII code, the control command indicated below are performed.
Symbol n after the ASCII code indicates an 8 bit binary number. The “+” symbol is used merely as a separator
and is not to be entered.

a)
Line spacing setting command (ESC + A + n)
Dot line space setting is determined by entering the code ESC +A + n.
Initial setting is 2 dot line space. The n should be an even number in the range of 0 ≤ n ≤ 255.
Note) If an old number is entered, the dot line is set to “n-1”.
Continuous printing is enabled by specifying n = 0 or 1.
b)
Bit image printing (ESC + K + n1 + n2 + n3)
By entering ESC + K + n1 + n2 + n3, print mode is switched from the text mode to bit image mode. n1,
n2, and n3 indicate the transmission volume of the bit image data to follow. That is, n1 indicates the
horizontal byte while n2 and n3 signify the vertical dot lines.

iDP3110 User's Manual
As this printer prints out 4 dot lines as one unit, the lacking data is output as space once the data for 4 dot lines
are read in or the output of data specified in n1, n2 and n3 has finished.
Note 1) If n1 = 23 is specified in iDP3110-40 specification, 4 dots from the topmost dot (MSC DOT)
become invalid. This is due to the fact that the output position for a single line consists of 180
dots.
Note 2) Although the printer returns to text mode when bit image mode printout is completed, line
spacing is set to 0 to enable further output in the bit image mode. Line feed is required in order
to commence text mode output.
For bit image printing, inverted printing is not performed but normal printing, even if the DIP
switch 1 is set to “ON”.
c)
International character setting (ESC + R + n)
By entering the code ESC + R + n, characters input hereafter are set to the characters for the following
countries.

Character registration (ESC + & + A1 + A2)
Individual patterns can be registered by entering the code ESC + & + A1 + A2, then entering the pattern
data.
A maximum of 8 characters can be registered, and any address in the range of 20H to FFH can be used for
the registration. However, if a new pattern is registered in an address already in use, existing data is cleared
and the newly entered data becomes valid. If more than 8 characters are registered, all existing character
registration is cleared.
[Address setting]
Specified address is matched to the character code and can be accessed likewise to the stored fixed
character record.
If a fixed character is defined in the specified address, the fixed character becomes invalid.
A1 signifies the starting address for the registration and A2 is the ending address.
[Method of data transmission]
d-1) Single character registration
Select the address to be defined (character code) from among 20H to FFH and designate is as A1.
When registering a single character, starting and ending addresses match each other. Tat is, A1 = A2.
<Example>
A 6 × 8 dot matrix full dot pattern is to be registered in address 41H (code for the fixed
character “A”).
(Numerals are hexadecimal.)

Pattern data (6 bytes)
In the successive controls, a 6 × 8 dot matrix full dot is output whenever the character code 41H is
specified. (Character “A” cannot be accessed.)

d-2) Multiple character registration
By repeating the single character registration, a maximum of 8 characters can be registered.
When defining multiple characters in a successive address (character code), register pattern data for a
maximum of 8 characters by designation A1 as the starting address and A2 as the ending address.
Note)
A1<A2, A2-A1≤7
[Pattern data configuration]
d-3) In case of iDP3110-24* (24 columns) specification
Pattern data to be registered must consist of 6 bytes per character. That is, pattern data configured by
a 6 × 8 dot matrix is broken up into 6 vertically positioned units each of which is represented by 1
byte of data. All together, 6 bytes of data are transmitted.
<Example> When transmitting the following data,

d-4) In case of iDP3110-40* (40 columns) specification
Pattern data to be registered must consist of 7 bytes per character.
That is, pattern data configured by a 7 × 8 dot matrix is broken up into 7 vertically positioned units
each of which is represented by 1 byte of data. All together, 7 bytes of data are transmitted.
<Example> When transmitting the following data,
As the model utilizes the half-dot printing method, it is not capable of positioning successive dots in
the printing direction (between print). Therefore, pattern specification in the position “*” to the right
of the position “•” in the diagram above will not be registered as pattern data.

Continuous paper feed command (ES + B + n)
By entering the code ESC + B + n, continuous paper feed operation is carried out for n dot lines.
The n should be an even number in the range of 4 ≤ n ≤ 255. If an odd number is entered, the dot line is set
to “n-1”. The command is canceled if a number exceeding this range is specified.
If printout data is stored within the input buffer when the command is entered, the printer commences with
the printout. However, the print line (10 dot line) will be included in the line feed value “n”. Therefore, if
4 ≤ n ≤ 9 is specified, line space shall be set as “0”.
