2.2. OPOS Driver
OPOS(OLE for Retail POS) was created by industry leaders as a device standard for POS
hardware. OPOS is a Win32-based architecture for POS device access. The benefits of this
standard are realized in the ease of access to hardware in not only outputting data to devices, but
also reading back the status of the device.
This OPOS driver can be used with any existing OPOS compliant application. Star also
recommends use of the OPOS standard to any developer creating a Win32-based retail software
application.
Star’s OPOS driver offers full compliance with the OPOS standard version 1.13.

Software Manual
2.5. ESC/POS Mode
The TSP100 futurePRNT provides ESC/POS mode emulation, which can be configured in
“TSP100 Configuration Utility”. Thus, even if your current software is designed for the ESC/POS
mode, you will be able to use it as is, without making changes.
The functions (logo printing, journal, etc.) of the TSP100 futurePRNT remain usable even when
you print in the ESC/POS mode.
For information about how to use the ESC/POS mode, refer to "4.18 Print Job Routing (Write
Printer)".
2.6. Star Virtual TCP/IP Port Emulator
<TSP100LAN, TSP100IIIW and TSP100IIILAN only>
You can use the TSP100LAN Setup Utilities to set up virtual TCP/IP ports. This will enable you
to continue using applications that directly designate their own TCP/IP sockets.

3.6. 2D Code Printing Function (2D Code Fonts)
The 2D code printing function performs QR code or PDF417 printing using device fonts supported in
this driver.
QR code or PDF417 printing is realized with a combination of 2D code fonts
(”QR_CNTL”, ”PDF417”, ”DATA1”, ”DATA2”, and ”DATA3”) and control fonts (”ESC_FONT”
and ”ESC_FONT_KANJI”).
Each Font Function as follows;

Default Text Settings
■ Zero Style
The default zero style is "Standard".
Selects whether the printer prints zeros in non-slashed form or slashed form. Select either
“Standard” (O) or “Slashed” (Ø).
■ International Character Set
The default international character set is "USA".
Changing the international character set will change certain characters in the character table to
match those characters fitting the selected location. Typically the changes are accented characters
and currency symbols.
■ Code Page
The default code page is "Normal" in the Star Line mode and " ESC/POS 437(USA,std. Europe)"
in the ESC/POS mode.
Changing the code page offers additional special characters specific to each of the specified
languages.
95
Software Manual
■ Character Encoding
The default character encoding is "Single Byte Characters".
Selects the character encoding used by the printer. You can select either single-byte encoding
(common for all non-Asian languages) or any of the four available double-byte encodings (for the
corresponding Asian languages).
■ Font Type <ESC/POS mode only>
Standard: (the default): Selects the standard font.
Large: Selects a rounder, bulkier-looking font.
If "Large" is specified for "Font type", a larger text is created based on a font
design, and it looks a little tight because the character space is the same as for
the standard font type.
■ Character space (Right) <ESC/POS mode only>
0 (the default) to 3 dots
Use this feature to add extra space (in dot units) to the right of each character. Extra spacing may
improve appearance when you are using the Large font type.
4.3.2.
Default Print Settings
■ Line Spacing
The default line spacing is "4 mm".
If the spacing is set to 4 mm (the initial setting), the printer will add a 1-mm line space between each 3-
96
Software Manual
mm-tall line of characters. If the spacing is set to 3 mm, the added spacing is omitted and receipts are
correspondingly shorter. But note that the shorter receipts may be harder to read.
■ Print Density
Adjusting the print density allows for adjustment in the level of contrast to compensate for the different
levels of sensitivity of different types and grades of thermal paper. The recommended setting is 100%
(Default).
■ Print Speed
Depending on the application, it may be desirable to slow down the speed of printing. This is typically
done to adjust the quality of print based on the grade and type of paper used. The recommended
settings for most cases “High” (Default).
97
Software Manual
■ Print Width
The print width should be set according to the size of paper used. The default (recommended
print width) is 72 mm.The standard default print width is 72 mm, which provides 4-mm margins
on both sides of 80-mm paper. The 51-mm print width setting is appropriate if you are using the
optional 58-mm paper supported by the TSP100 futurePRNT.
Notes:The print width is automatically changed to fit the paper width specified at addition
of the OPOS POS printer.
After changed automatically, do not adjust the print width manually.
■ Automatic Retry
If a printing error occurs while "Automatic Retry" is set to "Enable", the sent data is resent from
the beginning.
Retry processing is repeated up to five times.
The default is "Enable" for TSP100U/PU/LAN/ECO, and "Disabled" for TSP100GT.
Note:
1 If "Automatic Retry" is set to "Disabled", the ETB command is enabled in the
application side. However, check that the ETB is returned for one job before sending
the next print data. If print data is sent simultaneously from multiple PCs, the ETB
will not be guaranteed.
2 In the ESC/POS mode, the ETB command is not available even if "Automatic Retry"
is disabled.
3 The automatic retry function is not available for OPOS, JavaPOS, virtual serial port,
and virtual TCP/IP port.
■ Characters/Line (font A) <ESC/POS mode only>
42 char. (default): The standard for ESC/POS mode.
48 char.: The standard for Star Line mode.
98
Software Manual
■ Resolution Pitch <ESC/POS mode only>
Star Line standard: Uses Star Line mode’s standard resolution. (Characters are smaller than on
true ESC/POS printers, so the printer receipt is smaller and the right margin is larger.)
ESC/POS compatible (default): Margins and line widths are the same as on a typical ESC/POS
printer. (Characters are the same size as with Star Line standard, but padding is added so that
printer area occupies the same area as on a true EPSON/POS printer.)
Using this function, you can use legacy software solutions with no change.
If "Star standard" is selected, the pitch value is not adjusted.
■ Block Print Start Timing <TSP100IIIBI mode only>
The default line spacing is "Detect Page End".
If you select "Detect Page End", the printer receives 1 page of data, and then starts printing. This
is suited to printing receipts that include images (logos, etc).
If "Detect Line End" is selected, because the printer receives 1 line of data and then starts printing,
the time until the printer starts printing can be reduced. This is suited to printing receipts that
include text data only. A white line may be included when printing receipts that include images
(logos, etc).

Auto Reduction Setting
This function reduces the overall size of the printing.
However, to prevent any scanning errors, the size of printed barcodes is not reduced
even if the reduction settings are selected.
103
Software Manual
■ Paper width used
The default setting is “80mm (Do Not Compress)”.
By changing the setting to 80mm->58mm, the printing area is compressed widthwise so that 58 mm
width roll paper can be used instead of 80 mm width roll paper.
1) If the printing width is set to 51 mm using General Settings in the configuration
utility, the 80mm->58mm setting in Paper width used is disabled.
2) When Paper width used is set to 80mm->58mm, the barcode will be aligned on the
left margin of the paper when printed. If the printed barcode will be wider than
80mm->58mm, the barcode data will not be printed.
■ Receipt length reduction <TSP100ECO only>
The default setting is Original (no reduction).
The printing area can be compressed 50% reduction or 25% reduction lengthwise.
Because the size of printed barcodes is not reduced even if the receipt length
reduction settings are selected, the receipt length will be longer than the length for the
reduction ratio when printing data that contains barcodes.
4.5.2.
Top Margin to First Line <TSP100ECO only>
The length from the leading edge of the paper to the first line of printing can be specified.
104
Software Manual
The default setting is 3mm.
We recommend 3 mm as being effective for the ECO function; however, backward
feeding is carried out for each cut operation when 10 mm or fewer is specified. To
reduce the printing time, set to 11 mm.
4.5.3.

Even if the write data contains several cut commands, the last cut command is
recognized as the trigger and the confirmation dialog box appears. However, when
multiple receipts are sent in a single batch through a virtual serial port, the data will
be divided automatically for processing if it exceeds the buffer capacity. In this case,
the cut command just before the buffer becomes full is the trigger. When using a
virtual serial port, it is recommended to send the data one receipt (data + cut
command) at a time.
Even if the write data is sent one line at a time, the confirmation dialog box will not
appear and the data will not be printed until a cut command is received.
Send print data on a page basis (data + Cut command).
Also, select “Yes” or “No” in the confirmation dialog box, and send the next print

4.13. Barcodes
Printing of barcodes can be accomplished using any of three methods. The preferred method is to print
barcodes using control codes by programming directly to the printer. The second method is to print
barcodes using the embedded printer font for the barcode. The final method is to print barcodes using a
barcode font that resides on the host PC. Printing via control codes or using the embedded printer font
offers the best and most consistent quality and legibility. Printing barcodes using barcode fonts
(typically TrueType Fonts) can produce lackluster results if not configured properly.
When printing barcodes, the following settings can be applied to modify the appearance of the printed

4.17. Virtual TCP/IP Ports <TSP100LAN / TSP100IIIW / TSP100IIILAN Only>
By setting up virtual TCP/IP ports, you make it possible for your applications to directly designate
TCP/IP sockets.
Virtual ports are registered under the operating mode under which they are
generated. Virtual ports created under Star Line mode are registered as Star Line
ports; those created under ESC/POS mode are registered as ESC/POS ports.
Note that Star Line mode and ESC/POS mode cannot use identical port numbers.
Notes:
To direct output to the virtual port, the application must designate both the IP address
(for the PC on which this software is installed) and the corresponding port number (as
added above).
163
Software Manual
4.17.1.
Creating a Virtual TCP/IP Port
Use the following procedure to create a virtual TCP/IP port.
1. Click Add Port.
2. At the following dialog, enter the output port number used by the application.
(If the output port number is 9100, for example, enter "9100".)
Then click [OK].
3. Click the [Apply Changes] button to create the port.
Notes:
Multiple virtual TCP/IP ports can be created, but it is not recommended.
This function is provided to hold the downward compatibility.
164
Software Manual
