Caution
This printer has been certified to comply with FCC standards, which are
applied to the USA only. A shielded interface cable should be used
according to FCC 15.27(C). In addition, a grounded plug should be plugged
into a grounded AC outlet after checking the rating of the local power supply
for the printer to operate properly and safely.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the manufacturer
could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.

Important Safety Instructions
Important Safety Instructions
S
If you’re using an extension cord or power strip with the printer, make sure
that the total of amperes required by all of the equipment on the extension
is less than the extension’s rating. Generally, the total ratings of all
equipment plugged into any one power line should not exceed 15 amperes.
Don’t exceed this unless you know that the power line your equipment is
plugged into has a rating above 15 amperes.
S
Aside from the routine maintenance described in this handbook, don’t try to
service the printer yourself; opening the cover may expose you to shocks or
other hazards. Don’t make any adjustments other than those outlined in the
manual -- you might cause damage requiring extensive repair work.
S
If anything happens that indicates your printer is not working properly or
has been damaged, unplug it immediately and contact MTX for service.
These are some of the things to look for:
S The power cord or plug is frayed or damaged.
S Liquid has been spilled into the housing, or the printer has been exposed
to water.
S The printer has been dropped or its cabinet has been damaged.
S The printer doesn’t function normally when you’re following the operating
instructions.
Your MTX 1345 printer has been carefully designed to give you years of safe,
reliable performance. As with all electrical equipment, however, there are a few
basic precautions you should take to avoid hurting yourself or damaging the
unit:
S
Read the setup and operating instructions in this manual carefully. Be sure
to save it for future reference.
S
Read and follow all warning and instruction labels on the printer itself.
S
Unplug the printer before you clean it. Use only a damp cloth -- do not use
a liquid or aerosol cleaner.
S
Place your printer on a firm, solid surface. If you put it on something
unsteady, it might fall and be damaged. If you place it on a soft surface,
such as a rug, sofa, or bed, the vents may be blocked, causing it to
overheat.
S
To protect your printer from overheating, make sure no openings on the
printer are blocked. Don’t put the printer on or near a heat source, such as
a radiator or heat register. If you put the printer in any kind of enclosure,
make sure it is well ventilated.
S
Do not use your printer near water, or spill liquid of any kind into it.
S
Be certain that your power source matches the rating listed on the back of
the printer. If you’re not sure, check with your dealer or with your local
power company.
S
Your printer has a grounded, 3-prong plug as a safety feature, and it will
only fit into a grounded outlet. If you can’t plug it in, chances are you have
a non-grounded outlet; contact an electrician to have it replaced with a
grounded outlet. Do not use an adapter to defeat the grounding.
S
To avoid damaging the power cord, don’t put anything on it or place it
where it will be walked on. If the cord becomes damaged or frayed, replace
it immediately.

Important Safety Instructions
For Your Safety
To ensure safe operation the three-pin plug supplied must be inserted only into
a standard three-pin power point which is effectively grounded through the
normal household wiring.
Extension cords used with the equipment must be three-conductor and be
correctly wired to provide connection to ground. Incorrectly wired extension
cords are a major cause of fatalities.
The fact that the equipment operates satisfactorily does not imply that the
power is grounded and that the installation is completely safe. For your safety,
if in any doubt about the effective grounding of the power, consult a qualified
electrician.
This MTX 1345 printer fulfills the safety regulations according to UL 1950 and
VDE (IEC 950) and CSA 22.2/No. 950 for computer systems.
Important Safety Instructions
Operating Environment
Avoid installing the printer where it is exposed to moisture or heat (eg. direct
sun light).
S
S
S
Temperature:
+ 10EC to + 35EC (+50EF to +95EF)
Humidity:
20% to 80%
Humidity with Automatic
Sheet Feeder (ASF):
30% to 70%
Slots and openings in the printer's housing are provided for ventilation. Always
ensure that these openings are not obstructed.
Also ensure that the cables at the rear of the printer do not interfere with the
output paper path.
When processing fanfold paper always place the printer with its front edge
slightly off the edge of the table.
The main power cable must be connected to a ground protected wall-socket.
The selected voltage of the printer must be in accordance with the local
voltage.
The power plug must be easily accessible at any time so that it can be
disconnected immediately in case of danger or for maintenance purposes..
Comme le câble de secteur sert de dipositif d'arrêt-urgence, sa connexion à
l'imprimante doit être tout le temps accessible.
Before installing the printer, check the surrounding conditions in which the
printer will be placed (see next page, Operating Environment and chapter 1).
During a thunderstorm you should never attempt to connect or disconnect any
interface cables.
The power supply should only be opened and checked by authorized personnel.
Repairs and maintenance beyond the descriptions of chapter 5 should only be
attempted by authorized personnel as well. Repairs done inappropriately may
cause damage to the device and severe danger for the user.

About this Manual
This manual covers the printer in combination with an interface module (Personality Module).
The Personality Module (PM) is an integral part of the printer, and the type of
PM used significantly influences the behaviour or operation of the printer.
The structure of this manual is such that the operator is led step-by-step
through the various procedures. It starts with the unpacking and setting-up,
moves on to detailed instructions for operating the printer and ends with the
mounting of options.
The manual is divided into the following chapters:
1.

This chapter covers the unpacking and setting-up of the printer and the
installation of the PM (Personality Module) and ribbon cassette. By the
end of this chapter the printer should be fully functional and tested in its
primary form. It is not yet connected to the host computer system and no
options are mounted.
2.
Operating the Printer
This chapter discusses in great detail the operation of the operator panel,
all menu functions, and the general operation of the menu. General status
messages (e.g. COVER OPEN) are also described.
3.
Configuring the Printer

The Power Supply
The printer functions only in combination with an installed interface module,
called a Personality Module (PM).
Mains Voltage Selection
In general, the mains voltage selection is determined at factory site.
The illustration below shows the standard PM with a serial and parallel interface.
For detailed information about your PM, see Chapter 2.
Since an incorrect voltage selection can seriously damage the printer, please
pay special attention to the following:
Note
-
To avoid damage due to electrostatic discharge, do not touch the pins
or components of the PM.
Never attempt to install or remove a PM while the printer is switched
ON.
1. Remove the PM (6) from its packaging.
2. Insert the Personality Module (6) with the component side upwards until the
connector fully engages. Hand tighten the two lock screws (13).
Make sure that the specified voltage on the voltage selector (11) corresponds to
your mains voltage:
-
either 230 V for 180 to 264 V alternating current
or 115 V for 90 to 140 V alternating current.
If it is necessary to change the voltage, slide the selector button to the required
voltage selection.
Connect the printer to the mains using the power cord (6). First connect the
cable to the power cord socket and then to the mains.
Note:
As the power cord serves as a safety cut-off, its connection to the printer
must be accessible any time.

Installing the Black Ribbon Cassette
Note:
Information about installing the 4-colour-ribbon cassette you will find in
chapter 6 Colour option.
It is recommended to use only original ribbon cassettes (part numbers in
Appendix H) put out by our company. Using other ribbons will void your warranty.
1
Caution:
Never manually move the print head fully to the right hand stop (you
could change the way of the paper output).
Note:
If the printer is busy (message BUSY 4 ELQ) always press
before opening the top cover.
1. Switch the printer ON at the power switch; Power LED is lit and wait for the
message READY 4 ELQ or INSTALL RIBBON.
2. If the printer is busy (message BUSY 4 ELQ) press
.
3. Lift the top cover to gain access to the ribbon cassette mountings. The print
head will move to the correct position, aligned with the cut-out in the paper
guide plate to facilitate the installation of the ribbon cassette.
4. Remove any excess slack by turning the green knob on the ribbon cassette
clockwise. Move the ribbon feed guide to the position indicated on the plastic
cover of the cassette.
When switched ON the printer performs an internal self-test which checks the
electronics, the print head carriage movement and the interface. Power ON is
indicated by a green LED on the operator panel and shows TEST.... .
If the message INSTALL RIBBON is shown, follow the steps in chapter 1.5
Installing the Black Ribbon Cassette.
After inserting the ribbon press
to continue. When the internal test has been
completed successfully the display shows READY 4 ELQ or BUSY 4 ELQ in
case data has already been transmitted.

This parameter covers a range of -15/60 to +240/60 of an inch (0.42 mm),
where "-" is up the page and "+" is further down the page (see also the
table in Chapter 3.4 Configuring the Printer for VERT.POS.ADJ.).
Note:
How to Use this Function
Preprinted paper (e.g. bill of lading) has to be adjusted exactly. Following
errors are possible:
- the printed value is too high - the fanfold paper has to be moved a little
bit higher.
- the printed value is too low - the fanfold paper has to be moved a little
bit lower. No backward movement is possible for a form in park position
or with the print head on the first line. The displacement will become
effective on the next page. A negative displacement is possible if this
function is used during a current print job (not at the beginning of the
page).
The set up of VERT.POS.ADJ. will become effective at the next page of
the form. Therefore, it is recommended to perform VERT.POS.ADJ. set up
as long as the paper is in the park position and before starting the print
job.
- Fanfold Displacement (FANFOLD DIS)
(91)
A continuous form can manually be displaced by this function when it is
either correctly loaded at the park position or already fed and partly
printed. The Fanfold Displacement mode can only be called up in the
status READY or BUSY.
Note:
The key
After pressing
again, paper is fed in case it was in the park position. In
all other cases the paper remains at its actual position. Each further
pressing of

increment or decrement of the offset counter by 1/6 inch. If the reached
value is too high go backwards by pressing
.

As soon as the Fanfold Displacement mode is entered by pressing

(91)
or
(92) a vertical displacement is possible.
Key

The offset to the current position is shown on the display. Dependent on
the status of the internal print buffer, the offset will be immediately
executed after having resumed the printing or after having printed the
remaining data in the internal print buffer. The offset value is not stored in
the configuration set up and influences only the actual line counter. The
maximum displacement range is the distance between the actual position
and the page border plus one full page, but no more than 999 steps
(nearly 1 inch). A backward movement is possible from the actual position
to the top of that page.

There are two possibilities for the displacement to become active:
- If a positive displacement is set before starting the print job the printer
will move the paper into the right position first and then start printing.
- If the displacement is set during a print job, the printer prints the
contents of the print buffer. Afterwards, the displacement will become
active. All following data are at the new position.
- START/STOP Key
(93)
- turns off the STOP indicator
- makes the printer ready for operation
- either starts the printout or self-test functions when selected (see
MENU mode) or causes the interface status to change to READY or
BUSY (displayed)
- exits the MENU mode.
- Pressing [START/STOP]
(93)
The printer changes into the LOCAL mode (displayed) and turns on the
STOP indicator (52). All printer and paper handling operations are
stopped. After pressing
again, the printer quits the LOCAL or Menu
mode.
2.3 Menu Mode
Instead of having a multitude of dip switches, all operator selectable features
are accessable via the control panel and combined in the printer MENU.
This feature provides:
- easy handling of configuration (interface, etc.)
- quick parameter changes during an application
- a SAVE function to make changes permanent (until purposely reset),
facilitating changes in default settings.
2.2.3 Meaning of the Keys in the LOCAL Mode
- Lower Row Keys
- Insert or Eject Key
(90)
After pressing the Insert/Eject key, fanfold paper from the park position
is fed into the print position, and fanfold paper from the print position is
fed into the cut/tear off position (depending on the setting or the printer
type). Paper that has been retracted into the cut/tear off by the
Insert/Eject key will be moved automatically into the print position once
the printer receives a print command.
Note:
The menu has several levels:
- The first level contains the Main Functions
- Level 2 contains Sub-Functions
- Level 3 allows to select/confirm values and contains further Sub-Functions
- Level 4 allows to select/confirm values
This key is not active while the top cover is open.
For easy selection of paper source, font, pitch and macro, please refer to the
Quick Settings section in this chapter.
- The Paper Feed Key
(91) and the
Reverse Paper Feed Key
(92)
The paper moves 1/90" (0.28 mm) in the direction of the arrows. Holding
down the key results in continuous feeding.
Forward movement of paper from the park position is stopped at the
print position. Forward movement of paper from the print position is
stopped at the tear off position or it will be cut off (depending of the
setting or of the printer type).
Backward movement of paper is stopped at either the park position, the
print position or the tear off position.

Explanation of Individual Menu Items
- PRINT OUT
This function initiates a printout of the parameter settings and macro
definitions. This printout is helpful for future reference and when macros are
to be changed.
To actually start the print operation it is necessary to leave the STOP mode
(by pressing the
key).
While this function is operating the display shows PRINT OUT.
Main Functions
The following main functions are available:
- MACRO SELECT
To select one of the four macros which can be used for quickly changing the
printer settings for different applications. For example: Application A needs
fanfold paper cut into single sheets with a top margin of one, application B
processes fanfold paper in a batch with a top margin of six. Simply by
pressing MACRO SELECT the macro containing the information for the
specific application requirements can be activated.
Main Function CHANGE MACRO
- Font
A font is a family of characters with the same style and size. The appearance
of the font can be varied by using attributes such as: size, bold, italic, etc.
- CHANGE MACRO
In this part it is possible to create a macro for specific application needs (For
detail information see chapter Function CHANGE MACRO beginning on the
next page).
Note:
Configuring the printer
Most parameters can be set via the control panel or via escape sequences
from the host computer. The changes via escape sequences are visible in
the column CURRENT SETTINGS
- INSTALLATION
In the first sub-function named INTERFACE you can manipulate parameters
to enable communication with the host.
In the second sub-function labelled ADJUSTMENT you can optimize your
printouts. (Detail information you will find in the Sub-Function INTERFACE /
ADJUSTMENT)
- SAVE
Any desired changes to the default settings can be saved here. After power
on the new settings are activated.
The fonts included in the PM SER/PAR are:
- Data
- Letter Gothic

PRINT TEST 3 lists all available fonts. The firmware of the printer
indicates also barcodes. Detail information for printing barcodes are in
Appendix G Barcodes Quick Reference)
Configuring the printer
- Print Quality
Three different print quality levels can be selected:
- Draft quality (font "Data")
- Near letter quality (NLQ displayed with the font name)
- Letter quality (LQ displayed with the font name).
Different print qualities result in different print speed.
Configuring the printer
- Page Length (only for fanfold paper)
Page length is expressed in terms of lines within the range of 5 to 132 lines.
Any page length setting is based on six lines per inch, regardless of the
number of lines per inch selected in the line setting or defined by the
application.
The following indicates the number of lines for the most common paper sizes.
- Sub/Super Font
When the SUB/SUPER FONT is set to "NO", sub and superscript text will be
raised or lowered a half line, but the text size itself will not change.
When set to "YES", the text size will be reduced, and printed above or below
the line.
Example:

- Pitch
Indicates the number of characters printed per inch (10, 12, 15, 17, 18, 20 or
proportional).
Any pitch setting can be combined with any available font. In some cases this
may conflict with font designs. The pitch setting is, therefore, a matter of
personal taste.

Configuring the printer
- Vertical Positioning Adjustment (VERT.POS.ADJ.)
This function changes the vertical position in the current macro for the five
different paper paths TRACTOR V-POS ,MANUAL V-POS or BIN x V-POS
(x = 1 up to 3) exactly position the printout in relation to the top edge of the
form in use. It is meant to be a corrective parameter to meet variations in
paper size and pre-printed material. Using this function, the TOP MARGIN
and BOTTOM MARGIN setting are taken into account as well.
Configuring the printer
- The right margin is set to print position 80, 132 or 136, always measured
from the position of the first possible, not actual, left margin setting.
The left margin setting is influenced by the physical setting of the left tractor.
The above specifications are only correct if the tractors are in the original
positions, i.e. the left perforation is aligned with the centre mark on the plastic
plate (distance between the marks is 1/10").
This parameter covers a range of - 15/60 to + 240/60 of an inch, where "-" is up
the page and "+" is further down the page.
- The top margin indicates the first print line and is always set in steps of 1/6".
The position of the first margin is 1/6" from the top of the paper and indicates
the baseline of the letter H in upright "Data" font (see illustration).
The following table shows some values in inch and millimetres.
The top margin can be set to a maximum of 16/6" down on the paper.

- The left margin is set in 1/10" steps, depending on the actual selection. The
first left margin position is 1/20" from the left edge of the paper which means
that the letter H in regular "Data" font would be positioned 1/20" from the left
edge of the paper. The left margin can be set to a maximum of 15/10".

Right Margin
Configuring the printer
- The bottom margin indicates the last print line. Going beyond this margin
automatically initiates a form feed. The bottom margin is always set in steps
of 1/6".
Configuring the printer
- Paper Exit (only for single sheet paper)
It is possible to choose between STACKER and FRONT SIDE (manual front
insertion). The desired paper exit can be selected via operator panel or
software.
The bottom margin can be set to a maximum of 8/6".
Note:
The above specifications are influenced by the settings in "Vertical Position"
(see section "V.POS" in this chapter).
- Perforation Skip
- If PERF. SKIP is set to YES the printer starts to print after specified top
margin and stops printing before the bottom Margin.
-
If PERF. SKIP is set to NO the printer ignored the top and bottom margin
and prints from the very first line to the very last. That means that on a
standard 11" paper 66 lines are available for printing.
- Paper Source
The printer offers three input possibilities:
TRACTOR (fanfold paper)
Manual
ASF cassettes (optional), they can be accessed either individually or
pooled in a specified sequence. Any combination or cassettes can be
selected.
- Emulation
The emulation determines the set of commands available for the printer (see
Appendix D, E, and F). You can activate the following emulations:
- PHILIPS GP
- IBM PROPR.
- IBM PROPR.AGM
- EPSON LQ / ESC/P2
Note:
The selected Emulation will also be stored in the actual macro. With a
change of the macro (e.g. key
,
, aa aa or aabc
is pressed) it is
bc
possible that the emulation will also be changed. Be careful: Do not
change the emulation within an application.
MENU
- Character Set
When selecting a character set it can be further specified by the
corresponding national variants.
A corrective factor for the vertical positioning of the paper can be applied to
each paper source and the Run-In-Sensor (see section VERT.POS.ADJ.).
Note:
If you choose the paper exit FRONT SIDE/KEY you have to confirm each
output with a keystroke on
. That is a useful option when using
automatic sheet feeding which could cause a paper jam. As opposed to
feeding automatically the ASF will only feed after a keystroke has been
received.
Please refer to chapter 7, Technical Data, for detailed media
specifications.
Detailed print samples are found in Appendix B and the Character Set
Tables in Appendix C.
If a different macro is selected the default character set may change,
e.g.
3-11
3-12
- PHILIPS GP emulation has the character set NV-2.5 as default.
- IBM PROPR. emulation has the character set IBM SET 2 as default.
- EPSON / EDC/P2 emulation has the character set EPSON EXT.GCT
as default.
Configuring the printer
- Line Mode
If LF = LF + CR is selected, the printer performs a carriage return (CR) for
every line feed (LF) received by the interface.
Configuring the printer
Main-Function INSTALLATION
- Sub-Function INTERFACE
If CR = LF + CR is selected, the printer performs a line feed (LF) for every
carriage return (CR) received by the interface.
- BUFFER
Buffer size in Kbyte. The maximum size is 48 Kbyte.
- $$ Commands
This function causes $$ either to be printed as $$ or to activate ESC
commands within an application.
- WORD LENGTH
Length of the data to be transferred; values are 7 or 8 bit.
- I/F TYPE (Interface Type)
the following types are available:
- Parallel
- Serial
- Shared
In case the SHARED interface type is selected the printer switches
automatically between the parallel and serial interfaces. The first data
received at the port determine which interface port becomes active.
The other interface port will be closed so that only one interface is
active at a time (for detailed information see Appendix A Interface
Description).
If this function is set to YES the characters are interpreted by the printer in
the following way:
- $$ like ESC [
- $$/ like ESC.
- Tear-off-mode (only for fanfold paper)
There are three possible settings within this mode:
- NO
- YES 10 SEC.
- YES 1 SEC.
- NO SPECIAL
The NO SPECIAL setting is to be used with critical forms which cannot
handle the return movement of the paper.
With the YES setting the printer waits for one or ten seconds and, unless
further data is received, moves the paper to the first perforation after the text.
Regardless of this setting, whenever changing from fanfold to another paper
source, the printer will request the fanfold paper to be torn off before the
paper is moved to the park position.
- Pre-separation (is used for the ASF cassettes only)
During normal printing, a sheet of paper is not inserted from an ASF cassette
before the preceding sheet has been ejected. By selecting
PRE-SEPARATION = YES the sheets follow each other more closely,
thereby increasing the printer's throughput.
3-13
The factory setting for the interface type are: Shared, 8 Kbyte Buffer, 8 bit
word length even parity bit, 9600 baud rate, DTR protocol and AUTO
STATUS = NO.
- BAUD RATE (Only indicated if the serial interface is selected)
Controls the speed of data transfer. The possible transfer rates are: 600,
1200, 2400, 4800, 9600 or 19200 bps.
- PARITY BIT (Only indicated if the serial interface is selected)
The data transfer will be checked by an even or odd parity bit. The values
are: EVEN, ODD, NONE or IGNORE.
- PROTOCOL (Only indicated if the serial interface is selected)
Selectable are: DTR, XON/XOFF or XON/XOFF+DTR.
3-14
Configuring the printer
- AUTO STATUS (Only indicated if the serial interface is selected)
Possible values: YES or NO
If the Auto Status is set to YES the host is able to check the status of the
printer (for example no paper or printer is in the STOP mode).
Configuring the printer
- Platen Gap
This adjustment is to be seen as a correctional offset to the platen gap set
by the AGC (Automatic Gap Control) function or a PCC (Programmable
Copy Control) command. It effects all paper paths.
The offset is within the range of -3 to +4. One step is equal to 18 µm.
"-" reduces the gap, "+" increases it.
- Sub-Function ADJUSTMENT
- AGC Position
AGC (Automatic Gap Control) is an integral part of the paper handling
capabilities of the printer. It is an automatic adjustment function which
ensures an optimal print quality when using various paper thicknesses.
The gap adjustment will automatically take place whenever paper is
inserted
- after the paper source has been changed
- from park position (fanfold)
- after Power On
- after the printer has been in the STOP mode
- an AGC command has been issued.
- AGC Adjust
This is a basic adjustment which is automatically performed at the initial
Power On of the printer, and which there after only needs to be initiated
after having exchanged the print head or the platen. It is essential that the
ink ribbon is installed and no paper is in the printer when this procedure is
started. After activating this procedure, the printer displays
INSTALL RIBBON. If the ribbon is installed press
to continue.
The reference point for the measurement of the paper thickness is the
AGC Position of the first print line. Default for the horizontal AGC Position
is 24 (= ink ribbon exchange position), any position from 4 to 131 (at 10
cpi) can be selected.
An adjustment of the AGC Position is only necessary if a measurement at
the default position does not reflect the paper thickness of the area to be
printed on or if there is a paper edge (e.g. of a label) in that position (the
measuring process requires a plain paper-surface).
In addition to the automatic AGC function, random measurements of the
paper thickness can be invoked by the AGC command, or a specific platen
gap can be set using the PCC command. This is to meet the requirements
of forms with complex properties. For details see the Programmers Manual
for the printer.
3-15
- PAPER-IN ADJ (Paper-In-Sensor adjustment)
This parameter logically adjusts the base position of the Run-In-Sensor.
The factory set value is such that the default is set to compensate specific
mechanical tolerances. The adjustment range is from -3 to +4 in 1/60" steps
(0.42 mm), where "-" means an upward movement and "+" a downward
movement. When implemented, the adjustment applies to all paper paths.
3-16
Configuring the printer
- CUTTING V-POS
This parameter can be used to compensate mechanical tolerances which
may cause a misalignment between the perforation edge of a continuous
form and the tear-off position..
Configuring the printer
- TRACT.FF-MODE (Tractor Form Feed Mode)
BLANK PAGES means, every Form Feed sent to the printer will be
executed.
If you set NO BLANK PAGES, only a Form Feed before printable
characters will be executed, that means blank pages will be ignored.
The range within which variations can be met is - 15/60" to + 16/60", where "-"
is up the page and "+" is further down the page.

necessary.
- Is the ribbon cartridge properly installed? Adjust as necessary.
Characters do not print evenly or are not uniform in pitch
- Examine the paper pathway for dirt or other obstruction that may cause
the gap between print head and platen to vary. Remove the obstruction.
-
Print lines overlap
- Examine the paper pathway for dirt or other obstructions that may
prevent the platen from rotating freely. Remove the obstruction.
-
On preprinted forms, the printing on the copies is not aligned with the
preprinted matter
- Refer to section 3.4. Vertical Positioning (VERT.POS.ADJ.)

Colour Option
The mounting of the colour option is best done from the rear of the printer.
- Move the print head to a centre position.
- Remove the connection plug (40) out of the plastic shaft (39) which is
holding down the string of cables leading to the print head.
- Insert the blue plug (40) into the connector socket (41) of the colour option.
6.1 Installing the Colour Option
The visual appearance of any printout can be enhanced by using the colour
option in combination with a 4-colour ink ribbon.
When colour printing is not required it is recommended to use a black ribbon in
order to increase the lifetime of the colour ribbon. The colour option does not
have to be removed when printing with a black ribbon.

Overlined signal names indicate that the signal is true when the signal level is
low.
When the interface buffer is full except for the last character, BUSY will not be
reset. BUSY will be reset when space is available again for least 256 characters in the interface buffer. While the printer is offline (Stop Mode) BUSY
remains active until the printer enters the online state again.

STROBE
The printer is now ON-LINE and ready to receive data.
0.5 Fs
Timing
The host sets a print/control character to the 8 data lines.
350 ns max
After a time delay of a minimum of 0.5 µs, the host sends a ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
STROBE pulse
of a minimum of 0.5 µs. The print/control character is accepted into the interface
buffer and the printer transmits a BUSY signal to the host. When the data byte
is accepted into the interface buffer the printer transmits a BUSY signal and an
¯¯¯¯¯¯
ACKN pulse.
BUSY
))))))))
ACKN
The ¯¯¯¯¯¯
ACKN pulse informs the host that the data has been received and that
the printer is ready to receive new data.
If the interface buffer is full except for the last character the BUSY is not reset in
order to stop the data transfer from the host. The BUSY signal is only reset if
space is available in the interface buffer for a minimum of 256 characters.
When pressing [START/STOP] the BUSY remains high and no ¯¯¯¯¯¯
ACKN is sent.
Provided a minimum of 256 characters are available in the interface buffer,
pressing [START/STOP] will reset BUSY and transmit the ¯¯¯¯¯¯
ACKN pulse.

Appendix A System Interface Description
4 Shared Operation
In shared operation the interface buffer capacity is reduced by 256 bytes.
After Power-ON both the serial and the parallel interfaces are available for data
transfer.
If a byte is first recognized by the serial interface the parallel interface is immediately disabled by the BUSY signal. The serial interface is now active and will
operate, using the installed protocols.
If a byte is first recognized by the parallel interface either the DTR signal of the
serial interface is set to OFF or XOFF is sent, depending on the protocol.
If the serial interface starts to receive data while the parallel interface is active, it
is possible to receive 256 bytes of serial data. Any additional serial data will be
lost.
When the interface buffer is completely empty of serial data, and no new data
has been received by the serial interface for more than 10 seconds, both
interfaces are available for data transfer again.
When the interface buffer is completely empty of parallel data and no data has
been received by the parallel interface for more than 10 seconds, the 256 bytes
of serial data will be processed. Afterwards, both interfaces are available for
data transfer again.

Appendix D
Philips General Printer (GP) QUICK REFERENCE
Appendix D Philips GP Quick Reference
Characters used in control functions appear in monospaced type. Table 1 explains
some of the conventions used.
A pair of numbers separated by a slash ( / ) character indicates Column/Row
notation. This notation refers to the location of a character in a standard code table,
such as ASCII. (example: 1/B = 1B is the hex-code for Escape)
This appendix contains basic information on the Philips GP Emulation
commands supported in three Printer types:
Spaces appear between characters in sequence for clarity; they are not part of the
format.
At the end of this chapter you will find a listing of the GP-emulation commands
classified by Hex Code and a Hex - Decimal conversion table.
PRINTER TYPE 1
The following conventions are used in the command listings:
Table 1 Conventions
ESC Escape (1/B), introduces an escape sequence
Pn
Numeric parameter, or number of units that specify a distance or quantity
pertaining to the escape sequence, control function or control string. Accepted
values are 0...9999, may be preceded by + or -.
If the parameter is in normal notation like "200" the programming in hex-code is
according to a ASCII table. ("200" = 32,30,30 in hex).
If the parameter must be programmed in hex-code the notation is with a slash.
(1/A = 1A in hex-code)
Par
To specify different parameters in an ESC sequence. Accepted values are
numbers 0...9 and ASCII characters.
SP
Is standing for Space (hex 20)
PRINTER TYPE 2
PRINTER TYPE 3
Some commands or parameters may be different for a specific PRINTER TYPE.
In those cases it will be indicated to which PRINTER TYPE a command or
parameter applies.

Appendix E IBM ProPrinter 4207, 4208 XL 24 Quick Refernce
Characters used in control functions appear in monospaced type. Table 1 explains
some of the conventions used.
A pair of numbers separated by a slash ( / ) character indicates Column/Row
notation. This notation refers to the location of a character in a standard code table,
such as ASCII. (example: 1/B = 1B is the hex-code for Escape)
This appendix contains basic information on the IBM ProPrinter 4207, 4208
XL 24 Emulation commands supported in three Printer types:
Spaces appear between characters in sequence for clarity; they are not part of the
format.
At the end of this chapter you will find a listing of the IBM ProPrinter Emulation
commands classified by Hex Code and a Hex - Decimal conversion table.
PRINTER TYPE 1
The following conventions are used in the command listings:
Table 1 Conventions
ESC
Escape (1/B), introduces an escape sequence
Pn
Numeric parameter, or number of units that specify a distance or quantity
pertaining to the escape sequence, control function or control string.
Accepted values are 0...9999, may be preceded by + or -.
If the parameter is in normal notation like "200" the programming in hex-code
is according to a ASCII table. ("200" = 32,30,30 in hex).
If the parameter must be programmed in hex-code the notation is with a
slash. (1/A = 1A in hex-code)
PRINTER TYPE 2
v1...vn A series of parameters pertaining to the escape sequence, control function
or control string.
SP
PRINTER TYPE 3
Some commands or parameters may be different for a specific PRINTER TYPE.
In those cases it will be indicated to which PRINTER TYPE a command or
parameter applies.
E-1
E-2
Is standing for Space (hex 20)

EPSON LQ 2550 and ESC/P2 Quick Reference
Appendix F EPSON LQ 2550 and ESC/P2 Quick Reference
Characters used in control functions appear in monospaced type. Table 1 explains
some of the conventions used.
A pair of numbers separated by a slash ( / ) character indicates Column/Row
notation. This notation refers to the location of a character in a standard code table,
such as ASCII. (example: 1/B = 1B is the hex-code for Escape)
This appendix contains basic information on the EPSON LQ 2550 Printer
Emulation commands supported in three Printer types:
Spaces appear between characters in sequence for clarity; they are not part of the
format.
At the end of this chapter you will find a listing of the EPSON LQ 2550 Emulation
commands classified by Hex Code and a Hex - Decimal conversion table.
PRINTER TYPE 1
The following conventions are used in the command listings:
Table 1 Conventions
PRINTER TYPE 2
ESC
Escape (1/B), introduces an escape sequence
P1
Numeric parameter, or number of units that specify a distance or quantity
pertaining to the escape sequence, control function or control string.
Accepted values are 0...9999, may be preceded by + or -.
If the parameter is in normal notation like "200" the programming in hex-code
is according to a ASCII table. ("200" = 32,30,30 in hex).
If the parameter must be programmed in hex-code the notation is with a
slash. (1/A = 1A in hex-code)
v1...vn A series of parameters pertaining to the escape sequence, control function
or control string.
PRINTER TYPE 3
SP
Some commands or parameters may be different for a specific PRINTER TYPE.
In those cases it will be indicated to which PRINTER TYPE a command or
parameter applies.
F-1
F-2
Is standing for Space (hex 20)

Barcode Header Parameters

Barcode type
- default = 101 (Code 39 horizontal)
1. Introduction
The barcode print facility is available in all three emulations.
Type
2. Programming
There are three escape sequences to print barcodes
- The first sequence is to define the Barcode Header. The type of barcode as
well as all parameters are selected by a header. The header does not affect
any parameters outside the barcode application and remains valid until
another header is transmitted or the printer is turned off. This can be done at
any time but before barcode printing.
The header has the following format:
ESC [ ; P2 ; P3 ; P4 ; P5 ; P6 ; P7 8 z
Note:
8 = Space
- In step two, the ESC-sequence "Set Mode Barcode (SMBC)" starts the
barcode printing.
ESC [ ? 0 h
- Finally, the ESC-sequence "Reset Mode Barcode (RMBC)" will stop printing.
ESC [ ? 0
Note:
Between SMBC and RMBC are only printable characters tolerated (no CR
or LF).

4 bi-directional printing in NLQ
A switch from uni-directional to bi-directional printing is only possible if the
parameter UNI-DIRECT.CMD is set to YES via operator panel or
ESC-sequence.
Start Position of Barcode Printing
The start position for barcode printing is the current print position.
For both horizontal and vertical printing, the print position after printing barcodes
is the same line as the start position next to the barcode printed.
Width of the thin gaps (default: 2/144" = 0.35 mm)
The values are the same as in P4

Barcode Programming Examples
Barcode Example for 2 of 5 Interleaved
Note:
All examples are coded in standard uni-directional printing - that means
the parameter "P7" is not used.
In the following examples, 8 stands for "Space".
The small square before and after the printed barcode indicates the
actual print position.
Between Start Barcode and Stop Barcode are only printable characters
tolerated (no CR or LF).
