contact our sales offices. OPOS drivers vary from the printer driver for general Windows. It is
assumed that the programming is executed in a development environment, such as Visual
BASIC. This driver is not supposed to print through applications on the market.
Printer driver-APD
Adding control of printer, customer display, cash drawer to the printer driver for general
Windows enables the driver to control especially for POS purposes.
Epson Remote Maintenance Software
With the Remote Maintenance Software, you can manage clients by issuing various jobs from a
server to clients (IR-700) and obtain the execution results via the internet or LAN system. It
enables you to rewrite or obtain definition data of clients in many shops or on many floors all at
once. You can also rewrite the printer firmware. Therefore, a maintenance person does not need
to go to every client to rewrite data, which makes maintenance more effective.

Setup of 28-key POSkeyboard (DM-KX028)
A 28-key POS keyboard unit (DM-KX028) can be used by connecting to the LCD unit of IR-700,
which has a total of 28 keys in 4 lines horizontally and 7 lines vertically. Also, it can be used by
connecting an MSR (Magnetic Stripe Reader) unit.
The 28-key POS keyboard unit is enabled by writing definition data into the POS controller in
the LCD unit of LCD 700. This definition data can also be used in another IR-700 by saving as a
file.
The POS controller is connected to the USB port in the inside of IR-700. When it receives key
input from the 28-key POS keyboard unit, it outputs the defined data. This data is input into IR700 as a character string, just as with a USB keyboard.
Since data is not saved in the 28-key POS keyboard unit, you can use it without changing the
definition data if you replace the keyboard. However, resetting of the definition data is required
when the LCD unit is replaced.
The definition data of IR-320/310 can also be read in as a definition file for the IR-700.
It can also be used by switching, with the layer change key, or in software, by assigning several
definition data to one key, with the layer function.
Note:
Do not input data from an input device (external keyboard, POS keyboard, etc.) connected to the keyboard
interface, during data input from the 28-key POS keyboard unit and the MSR unit.
The 28-key POS keyboard unit cannot be connected to the 15" Display model.

which has total 60 keys of 10 lines horizontally and 6 lines vertically, and has a key lock of 8
positions. Also, there are USB connectors in the rear.
By programming definition data into the controller of the 60-key POS keyboard unit, the 60-key
POS keyboard unit becomes usable. Set the key lock key to the PRG position to program.
This definition data can also be used in another IR-700, by saving it as a file. Also, it can be
programmed by reading another definition file.
A keyboard for PCs is required to perform these operations.
The key lock cannot be used for OPOS for Windows 2000.
Definition to the 60-keys POS keyboard unit can also be carried out using a PC on which
Windows 2000/XP and USB 2.0 is installed. In this case, installation of a dedicated utility is
required.
When a keyboard is replaced, because data is saved in the 60-keys POS keyboard unit,
definition data needs to be reconfigured in the new keyboard.

EPSON OPOS ADK
OLE (Object Linkage and Embedding) is component software that runs on the OS of Win 32-bit
style, such as Microsoft Windows 2000. Depending on how the software components have been
created, the software may be reusable or reversely compatible.
The objective of the OLE POS ("OPOS") is to use the OLE to standardize the control system (API)
for the peripheral units of the POS. By this standardization, the application and peripheral unit
control software become open and generic. The OPOS standardizes the interface between the
POS application and the device control object, which depends on the device or the
manufacturer. The OPOS also facilitates the transplant of the application and the
reconfiguration of the peripheral devices.
Because of standardization of the peripheral devices, a large part of the work required for the
development of software can be eliminated, and the system can become fully open. As a result,
comparatively small-sized shops that plan to introduce the POS can easily configure an
intelligent, flexible POS system.
OPOS makes it easy to build POS applications that take advantage of the functionality that
Windows has to offer, such as graphics, video, and sound; a user-friendly GUI; and
multitasking.
For information on the installation procedure for the OPOS ADK, see the user&#xFF95;s guide
registered in the \C:\Backup\Oposadk directory.
Rev. D
Utility 4-47
Creating the Component Software
The POS device needs a control program. The device control object once existed as a part of
monolithic POS application software. Because of this monolithic structure, POS system
designers had to replace or change the entire POS application software to change the device
control object alone when a peripheral device was replaced. This work claimed a lot of time and
money. POS application software developers had to become experts about each manufacturer’s
devices, including functions and command systems, to create a device control object.
With the advent of the PC-POS, however, any external device is now connectable to a PC as long
as the interface (serial, parallel, or whatever) is supported. While the problem with the
compatibility of the hardware was solved in this way, a problem with the software still existed.
The software was not applicable, and the POS application software itself had to be replaced. For
this reason, it was impossible to make the PC-POS fully open in terms of both the hardware and
software.
To solve this problem, the device control object was modularized and made to be independent
of the POS application software. Because only the device control object needs replacement at this
time, the work to replace the POS application software itself when the device was replaced is
simplified. Also, because the original device control object is supplied, the POS application
software developers no longer need the detailed expertise of each manufacturer’s device or the
standardization of the entire system and the hardware as well as the software. This reduces the
load of developing work.
Software Standardization
When a device control object is created, it is necessary to choose the interface (API) between the
POS application software and the device control module. EPSON has joined an industrywide
and worldwide effort to standardize and spread the use of APIs. The standardized software uses
an OCX driver, which is modularized software divided into two levels: the Control Object (CO)
and the Service Object (SO). the Control Object (CO) and the Service Object (SO).
A separate CO exists for each class of device, while a separate SO exists for each individual
device; for example, software that uses a TM-U950 needs a general POS printer CO and a
specific TM-U950 SO. If the TM-U950 printer were replaced by a TM-U375 printer, the TM-U950
SO would have to be replaced by a TM-U375 SO, but the rest of the software, including the POS
printer CO, would remain the same. In other words, a switch from one printer to another
requires only a change in the SO.
EPSON Software
The software products (OCX drivers) that EPSON offers to enable such an OPOS system are
called the EPSON OPOS ADK. The EPSON OPOS ADK provides the OCX driver and much
more. EPSON also provides custom tools to support the construction and development of an
OPOS application software development environment.

How to Use RAID 7-1
What is RAID?
RAID is a disk subsystem that employs two or more ordinary hard disk drives in combination
for fault tolerance and performance. The IR-700 supports RAID 1 which provides for disk
mirroring. In a RAID system using mirroring, all data in the system is written simultaneously to
two separate hard disks within the same system. Since all the data is on the second drive, it is
ready to use if the first one fails. This ensures stability of computer operations, decreasing the
likelihood of data loss due to hard disk failure.
NOTE
The disk mirroring is intended only for backup purposes. It cannot be used for restoring lost data or
recovering from errors.
If both of the two hard disk drives fail, or the system fails, the backup function is disabled.
Main Hard Disk Drive
Mirroring System
Data
a,b,c,d,e
a,b,c,d,e
RAID Controller
Sub Hard Disk Drive
a,b,c,d,e
The same data is recorded on the two disk drives.
When reading data, the data comes from the main disk drive.
The IR-700 RAID system records the same data on the main and sub hard disk drives, and reads
the data from the main drive. In the event a failure occurs in the main drive, the sub drive
automatically takes over. In that case, the sub drive can duplicate error messages if automatic
e-mail alerts, pop-up message boxes, or the recording event log function has been enabled.
.
When the Main Hard Disk Drive Fails
Pop-up message
Main Hard Disk
Drive
System
E-mail
RAID Controller
Event log
Sub Hard Disk
Drive
The controller stops accessing the main drive and starts to use the sub drive as
the main immediately after the main drive fails.
When one of the two disk drives is replaced, the system restructures RAID in the background.
The system can run applications while performing the background task.
7-2 How to Use RAID
Rev. D
IR-700 Technical Reference Guide
There is no difference in user operations between using two hard disk drives and using one
drive.
To use the system with RAID1, two hard disk drives must be configured for mirroring in the
RAID BIOS.
NOTE
The two hard disk drives to be used for the mirroring must be the same model and have the same capacity.
Array Build
To use RAID, RAID arrays for the two hard disk drives must be configured. The configuration
can be made by the RAID BIOS. The array setup for the IR-700 RAID system is not done at the
factory, and it must be done by the customers.
The synchronization of writing on two disks is automatically checked at regular time
intervals.When an out-of-sync status is detected, rebuilding the array is performed by making a
duplicate copy of the logical master drive as the logical second drive. All of the operation is
carried out automatically without interrupting user operations. The status can be checked by the
RAID BIOS or GUI utility.
If one of the two hard disk drives fails, the system can continue to operate using the second one.
Error messages for the first drive failure can be displayed if the corresponding setup is made by
GUI utility (Critical/Dropped). When the system is turned ON for the first time after the main
disk is switched, the RAID BIOS detects the status and the start-up sequence is stopped for a
brief period of time before running Windows.

❏ During Windows runs
Various real-time alerts are available by GUI utility.
The GUI utility also allows you to check the operational status.
Available alerts and error checking settings: E-mail, Coloring

Use the RAID Event Watch tool to display popup messages in
front of an application.
Although the system can operate normally with one hard disk after the other one fails, note that
there is no more protection against another hard disk failure. It is recommended to recover the
mirroring function as soon as possible by repairing or replacing the failed hard disk drive.
Detecting errors after Windows starts up is performed as shown below.

❏ Newly building RAID system
❏ Rebuilding RAID after replacing one of the two hard disks
Establishing RAID system by adding one more hard disk to the normal one-drive
system
Follow the procedure below to establish RAID by adding one more hard disk to the normal onedrive system.
Establishing RAID system is impossible if the all area of the current hard disk drive is used.In
such case, make a backup copy of the important data, and then build RAID in the same way as
newly building it.
The hard disk drive of the normal one-drive system is connected to the R (Primary) side.
1. Make a backup copy of important data stored on the hard disk drive.
NOTE
Be sure to make the backup copy as a protection against loss of data due to an operating error.
2. Connect another hard disk drive, whose model number is exactly the same with that of the
one in current use, to the L (Secondary) side. See page 3-40 for information on how to
connect it.
3. Reboot the system.
4. Press Ctrl+S or F4 key while POST is running to start RAID BIOS.
5. The RAID BIOS screen will appear. Information of the connected hard disk drives is
displayed in the information field.Verify that there is no difference in the displayed
information (model number and capacity) between the two hard disks (0 and 1). RAID

The real-time clock (RTC) is built in the chipset (Intel 82801DA). The RTC has a clock function
and CMOS RAM function, and is backed up by the built-in lithium primary battery even when
the system is turned off.
CMOS RAM stores the system setting information such as the clock and power management
settings. To clear CMOS RAM, turn the power off and short 2-3 of JP1601 on the main board.
To set the clock, use the BIOS Standard CMOS Features menu.
Clock precision: ±100 seconds per month.
Video Controller
The video controller in the chipset
The video memory uses the part of the main memory, and the color count settings shown below
are possible for each resolution.
Dual display is available with Windows function. Another screen can be displayed on an
external display as well as the LCD.
It has a screen stretching function. When the VGA screen is displayed on the LCD with SVGA or
XGA, the screen in expanded to display without reducing the size.
POS Controller
The POS controller is built in the LCD unit. The POS controller sets and controls the touch panel,
28 Key POS keyboard, and MSR. It also stores the definition data of the 28 Key POS keyboard
and MSR. The POS controller is connected with the IR-700 through an USB port and sends the
input data from these devices to the IR-700 through it.
Before using the 28 Key POS keyboard, it is necessary to set the definition data in the POS
controller. (Refer to Chapter 4 "28-key Definition Utility" for more information.)
To use the MSR or touch panel, it is not necessary to set the definition data in the POS controller.
If any other settings are necessary, set them before use. (Refer to Chapter 4 "MSR Setting Utility"
for more information.)
HDD
Up to two Serial ATA 3.5" HDDs can be installed. The rear structure of the system enables you to
replace them easily.
The model with two HDDs can establish a RAID system to operate the system continuously and
to improve security by preventing a data loss.

Continuous operation cannot be recommended because it
shortens the life of the product. When you must operate it
continuously, stop the turning of the motor during the idle
time by referring to “Appendix-B Operating the Product
Continuously (24-hours/day).”
Audio
The mike input, stereo line out terminal, and monaural speaker are built in. Mike input, output
from the system, and beep output from the system and MSR are available. The volume of the
speaker can be adjusted with the speaker volume controller on the right or OS.
CF Slot
CF (CompactFlash) can be installed on Primary of the main board as an IDE device.
HDD is not an IDE device but an SATA device.
Serial Device
The IR-700 has four serial ports (COM1, COM2, COM5, COM6 ). Also, +5V or +12V can be
output at the 1st pin by the Jumper setting of the main board. The serial ports COM3 and COM4
are internally used for the dedicated TM printer unit/customer display (COM3) and the touch
panel (COM4). Also, the system can be started up by the ring signal from the 9th pin.
To use the serial ports COM5 and COM6, it is necessary to set other unused devices (for
example, parallel ) to disabled (not used) using the BIOS setup and then allocate interrupts for
the serial ports COM5 and COM6.
Note:
COM3 (printer unit) and COM4 (customer display) cannot be used because they are internally dedicated
for IR-700.

ESC/POS command, etc.
For more information about the printer, refer to [TM-T88IIIX Technical Reference Manual].
Drawer
It is connected on the drawer connector of the printer unit, and controlled via the printer. A
three-terminal regulator is built in the printer for current limiting.
Ethernet Controller
The Ethernet controller is built in the Chipset (Intel ICH4 ). This enables operation at 10 Mbps
and 100 Mbps and wakeup from the LAN.
To enable the wakeup, set Resume by OnBoard LAN to Enable with the BIOS Power menu.
The operating status of LAN can be confirmed by the LED of the Ethernet connector.
The controller can be disabled by setting OnBoard LAN of the Chipset menu in the BIOS to
Disabled. (Refer to Chapter [BIOS] for more information.)
The MAC address specific to each controller is described on the seal attached to the main board
(remove the side panel which is on the left side of the unit). For Windows 2000/XP/WEPOS, the
MAC address can be obtained by using the following command:
ipconfig/all
