command
The printer has 3 interfaces; the parallel interface, USB interface and Type-B optional
interface. These interfaces are selected manually by Default Setting or selected
automatically.
† Manual selection
One of the three interfaces can be selected by Default Setting.
† Automatic selection
The automatic interface selection is enabled by Default Setting. In this automatic
interface selection mode, the printer is initialized to the idle state scanning which
interface receives data at power-on. Then the interface that receives data first is
selected. When the host stops data transfer and the printer is in the stand-by state
for the period of seconds specified by Default Setting, the printer is returned to the
idle state. As long as the host sends data or the printer interface is the busy state,
the selected interface is let as it is.
† Interface state and interface selection
When the parallel interface is not selected, the interface gets info a busy state.
When the Type-B serial interface card is installed and it is not selected, the
interface sends XOFF and sets the DTR signal MARK. When the optional
interface is not selected, the printer sets “OFFLINE” bit of MNSTS register to the
optional interface. When the printer is initialized or returned to the idle state, the
parallel interface got into a ready state, the serial interface sends XON and sets the
DTR SPACE and the printer resets “OFFLINE” bit of MNSTS register to the
optional interface. Note that the interrupt signal such as a -INIT signal on the
parallel interface is not effective while that interface is not selected.

† Preventing Hosts from Data Transfer Timeout
Generally, hosts abandons data transfer to peripherals when a peripheral is in the
busy state for dozens of seconds continuously. To prevent hosts from this kind of
timeout, the printer receives data very slowly, several bytes per minute, even if the
printer is in the busy state. This slowdown is started when the rest of the input
buffer becomes several thousands of bytes. At last, when the input buffer is full,
the printer is in the busy state continuously.
IEEE1284.4 on the parallel interface and on the USB interface do not require this
function.

1.2.7 IEEE1284.4 protocol
The packet protocol described by IEEE1284.4 is supported on the parallel I/F.
Two function modes of IEEE1284.4 protocol, “Off” and “Auto”, are available and
one of them is selected according to the value of Default setting. (See Section
1.3.5. Default Setting).
NOTE:Packet protocol option “Off” &“Auto” in Default setting mode are effective in
not only parallel I/F but also USB I/F.
Auto:
Communication is carried out in the convetional mode until a magic
string (1284.4 synchronous commands) is received. By receiving a
magic string, communication in IEEE1284.4 packet mode is started.
Off:
Communication is carried out in the convetional mode.
NOTE:The packet protocol of IEEE1284.4 allows a device to carry on multiple
exchanges or conversations which contain data and/or control information
with another device at the same time across a single point-to-point link. The
protocol is not, however, a device control language. It does provide basic
transport-level flow control and multiplexing services. The multiplexed
logical channels are independent of each other and blocking of one has no
effect on the others. The protocol operates over IEEE1284.

2.1.1 Printer Mechanism
2.1.1.2 Paper Feed Mechanism
This printer mechanism consists of Printhead, Paper feed mechanism, Carriage
movement mechanism, Tractor feed mechanism, Platen gap adjustment mechanism,
Ribbon feed mechanism, PF motor, CR motor, detectors, and so on.
The paper feed mechanism picks up paper and transports it to the printhead, then ejects
the paper step by step or continuously driven by the PF motor. PF motor drives the
paper feed mechanism gears and the platen roller. The top of form and paper out
condition are detected by the front and rear PE detectors, respectively.
2.1.1.1 Printhead
The printhead prints data from the control board on paper using the ink ribbon. The
printhead is mounted on the carriage unit.
„ Printing method:
Impact dot matrix printing
„ Number of dot wires:
18
„ Diameter of dot wire:
φ0.29 mm
„ Dot wire arrangement:
2.1.1.3 Carriage Movement Mechanism
The carriage movement mechanism carries the carriage unit left and right along the CR
guide shaft and mechanism frame, and stops it at any position for printing. It is driven
by torque sent from the CR motor via the timing belt. Home position is detected by the
HP (home position) detector at power on and at CR motor phase change.
2.1.1.4 Tractor Feed Mechanism
The tractor feed mechanism feeds continuous paper to the printhead and ejects it.
Torque from the PF motor is transferred to the tractor unit via the release mechanism in
the paper feed mechanism. The release lever in the release mechanism switches torque
from the PF motor between cut sheet feeding and continuous paper feeding. This
printer is equipped with several tractor feeding methods (front / rear push tractor
feeding, front / rear push & pull tractor feeding and front / rear pull tractor feeding),
which is selected according to the tractor unit setting positions and the lever positions.
The tractor detector detects the release lever setting position, for cut sheet feeding or
continuous paper feeding.
2.1.1.5 Platen Gap Adjustment Mechanism
Figure 2-3. Dot Wire Arrangement
Operating Principles
The platen gap (the gap between the platen and the printhead) adjustment mechanism
consists of the CR guide shaft, parallelism adjustment bushing, PG adjust lever and PG
detector. The PG adjust lever is attached to the left side of the CR guide shaft. The
bushing is attached to the left frame. Since the CR guide shaft is eccentric, the
printhead approaches or recedes from the platen roller as the PG lever turns forward or
backward. The PG detector detects the PG lever position. If the lever is set to a position
between “2” and “6”, the printer is in the copy mode.
