The clear, easy-to-read DM-D500
vacuum fluorescent customer display
offers a large 256 x 64 dot matrix area
capable of displaying custom fonts,
graphics and Asian character sets
(42 columns x 8 lines max). The
DM-D500 can be freely tilted and
swiveled to a variety of viewing
angles, and is available with
space-saving configurations that
attach directly to Epson printers.
Designed for easy integration
With its pass-through functionality,
The DM-D500 is easy to connect with
Epson POS printers or IR terminals,
and can directly connect with your
existing host terminal (serial port
with a 12 V power supply required)
for expanded system flexibility. In
addition, the DM-D500 is fully
backwards-compatible and can display
20 columns x 2 lines. This allows you
to use the DM-D500 as a drop-in
replacement for older pole displays.
The printer interface (based on RS232) allows you to connect both a
printer and the display with only one
port on the host computer side. Best
of all, you can purchase everything you
need from the same source—Epson.

rate of 115,000 bps. It has extremely
low energy consumption, using only
six watts of power. With an MTBF
of 30,000 hours, it delivers the
outstanding reliability that is critical
to high-volume, customer-friendly
business environments. The DM-D500
offers high-quality performance in a
large screen display that will give
your customers added confidence
during transactions.
