Graphics such as shop logos to be printed on receipts can be stored. Even with a serial interface
model whose communication speed is low, high speed graphic printing is possible.
Use the TM Flash Logo Setup utility for NVRAM to register graphics.
NV Graphics Print Mode
In this mode the printer prints the following:
• Capacity of the NV graphics
• Used amount of the NV graphics
• Unused capacity of the NV graphics
• Number of the NV graphics that are registered
• Key code, number of dots in X direction, number of dots in Y direction, number of colors to be

Chapter 2 Setup
• The transmission speed can be set with a command or the memory switch utility.
(Setting values: 2400, 4800, 9600, 19200, 38400, 57600, 115200) The value set with a
command or the memory switch utility is enabled only when DIP switches 1-7 and 1-8
are on. For other settings, the value set with the DIP switches is enabled.
• Depending on print conditions such as print duty, print head temperature, and data
transmission speed, print speed is automatically adjusted, which can cause white lines
due to intermittent print (the motor sometimes stops). To avoid this, set the transmission
speed higher or keep the print speed constant by setting it lower. (See "Setting the
Memory Switches" on page 42.)

Customized value
The following items can be set as the customized value with the Memory Switch Setting Utility
or a command.
• Print density
• Print speed
• Number of head energizing parts
Selecting the print density
Selectable from levels 1 to 13 (light ∼ dark).
The print density can be set with DIP switches (2-3/2-4) or the customized value. (See
"Setting the Memory Switches" on page 42.) The initial setting of the customized value is
“Depends on the DIP switch settings.” If the customized value is changed, the value set
with the customized value is enabled.
Selecting the print speed
2
Selectable from levels 1 to 9 (low ∼ high). (Initial setting: level 9)
Depending on print conditions such as print duty, print head temperature, or data
transmission speed, print speed is automatically adjusted which may cause white lines due
to intermittent print (the motor sometimes stops). To avoid this, keep the print speed
constant by setting it lower, or set the transmission speed higher in case of the serial
interface. (See "Transmission speed (DIP switch 1-7/1-8)" on page 36.)
Selecting the number of head energizing parts
• One-part energizing
• Two-part energizing
• Auto energizing (Initial setting)
• Usually, the number of head energizing parts does not need to be changed.
• When auto energizing is selected, the printer usually prints in one-part energizing, but it
automatically shifts to two-part energizing if print duty is high.
43
Adjusting the Near-End Sensor for Thermal Roll Paper
Below are two situations where a roll paper NE sensor adjustment is required when using the
thermal roll paper.
• To adjust the detection position to suit the diameter of the roll paper core used.
• To adjust the detection position of remaining amount of paper.
• The roll paper NE sensor is disabled when the recommended liner-free label is selected
by the DIP switches 2-3 and 2-4.
• The roll paper NE sensor is enabled only when the printer is installed horizontally.
• Since roll paper cores vary slightly in shape, depending on paper roll design and
manufacturing tolerances, it is impossible to detect the remaining paper exactly.
• Use roll paper with a core inner diameter of 12 mm {0.47"} and outer diameter of 18 mm
{0.71"} so that the NE sensor can detect the remaining paper as accurately as possible.
Follow the steps below to adjust the roll paper near-end detector.

Open the roll paper cover, and remove the roll paper.
Loosen the adjustment screw fastening the sensor, and move the
positioning plate from the default position to the position shown below.
Before changing the paper from the thermal roll paper to the recommended liner-free label,
be sure to change the DIP switch settings, and move the positioning plate of the roll paper

Connecting the Drawer Kick-out Cable
WARNING
• Specifications of drawers differ depending on makers or models. When you use a
drawer other than specified, make sure its specification meets the following conditions.
Otherwise, devices may be damaged.
∗ The load, such as a drawer kick-out solenoid, must be connected between pins 4 and
2 or pins 4 and 5 of the drawer kick-out connector.
∗ When the drawer open/close signal is used, a switch must be provided between
drawer kick-out connector pins 3 and 6.
∗ The resistance of the load, such as a drawer kick-out solenoid, must be 24 Ω or more
or the input current must be 1A or less.
∗ Be sure to use the 24V power output on drawer-kick out connector pin 4 for driving the
equipment.
• Use a shield cable for the drawer connector cable.
• Two driver transistors cannot be energized simultaneously.
• Leave intervals longer than 4 times the drawer driving pulse when sending it
continuously.

Chapter 3 Application Development Information
Application Development Information
This chapter describes how to control the printer and gives information useful for printer
application development.
How to Control the Printer
Use a driver or ESC/POS commands to control the printer.
Selecting a Driver
Choose one of the drivers, Advanced Printer Driver (APD) or OPOS ADK, depending on the
application operating environment. You cannot control the same printer with both of the drivers.
For information about the driver operating environment, see the installation manual for each
driver.
When you newly develop an application
• Use APD if you want to print True Type fonts or print much graphics.
• OPOS ADK is recommended for system extensibility. An OPOS driver is provided for various
peripherals and it is a POS industry standard now. It enables efficient POS system
establishment, reduction of development cost, and effective use of application asset.
When APD is used for your existing application
Use APD.
When OPOS ADK is used for your existing application
Use OPOS ADK.
You can use all functions including ones not supported by OPOS ADK or APD by using a
driver with ESC/POS command. Use the DIRECT I/O function of OPOS ADK, the control A
command of APD, or Status API to send ESC/POS command from each driver. (See
"ESC/POS command functions" on page 61.)
57
3
Precautions on Using a Driver
When using a driver (APD or OPOS ADK) for the ReStick model, it is recommended to set
Memory switches 5-2 to 5-4 to OFF.
If you use an APD/OPOS driver for the standard/ReStick model while Memory switch 5-2 is set
to ON, there are the following limitations on printing. (Check the operation of the driver before
using it, since unexpected problems other than those described below may occur.)
Using the APD when Memory switch 5-2 is ON
APD for the standard model
If more than 45 digits (including spaces) of the device font are printed per line, a line feed is
inserted.
APD for the ReStick model
• Character and graphic size and paper feeding amount are smaller than when printing with the
standard model TM-T88IV.
• Depending on the application, characters may be printed in unexpected positions.

ESC/POS Command
ESC/POS is the Epson original printer command system. With ESC/POS commands, you can
directly control all the TM printer functions, but detailed knowledge of printer specifications or
combination of commands is required compared to using a driver.
To use ESC/POS commands, you need to make a nondisclosure contract first and get the TMT88IV Specification (ReStick Model). Ask your dealer for details.
The ESC/POS command functions are listed as follows. See the TM-T88IV Specification (ReStick

Reverse Mode
The transfer of status data from the printer to the host proceeds in the nibble or byte mode.
This mode allows data transfer from an asynchronous printer under the control of the host. Data
transfers in the nibble mode are made via the existing control lines in units of four bits (a nibble).
In the byte mode, data transfer proceeds by making the 8-bit data lines bidirectional. Both modes
fail to proceed concurrently in the compatibility mode, thereby causing half-duplex
transmission.

• Connect all signal lines using a twisted-pair cable. Connect the return side to the signal
ground level.
• Make sure the signals satisfy electrical characteristics.
• Set the leading edge and trailing edge times to 0.5ms or less.
• Do not ignore Ack or BUSY signals during a data transfer. Ignoring such signals may
result in data corruption.
• Make the interface cables as short as possible.

Status transmission from printer with USB interface
In order to ensure that there is no lack of status data, it is necessary to periodically retrieve status
data at the host computer.
Unlike RS232C transmission, it cannot spontaneously interrupt data transmission to the host
computer.
The printer has a 128-byte status data buffer. Statuses that exceed the buffer capacity are
cancelled.
