FCC Compliance Statement
For United States Users
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class
B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed
to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential
installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency
energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may
cause harmful interference to radio or television reception. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause interference to radio and television reception, which can
be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try
to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
❏
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna
❏
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver
❏
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which
the receiver is connected
❏
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the
following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and
(2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that
may cause undesired operation.
WARNING
The connection of a non-shielded equipment interface cable to this equipment
will invalidate the FCC Certification of this device and may cause interference
levels which exceed the limits established by the FCC for this equipment. It is the
responsibility of the user to obtain and use a shielded equipment interface cable
with this device. If this equipment has more than one interface connector, do not
leave cables connected to unused interfaces.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the manufacturer could
void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
For Canadian Users
This Class B digital apparatus meets all requirements of the Canadian
Interference- Causing Equipment Regulations.
Cet appareil numérique de la classe B respecte toutes les exigences du Règlement
sur le matériel brouilleur du Canada.

Introduction
This guide explains how to use the Type B IEEE 1394
Interface Card when attached to a printer.
Features
This interface complies with the IEEE 1394 standard,
and is equipped with the following features:
❏
It can be connected to Macintosh® FireWire®
ports. The required printer driver is supplied with
the interface card. The EPSON Monitor 3 utility
can also be used to display the printer status on
the computer.
Note:
DIP switch 10 must be set to ON (advanced mode)
when connecting the printer to a Macintosh. See
page 15.
❏
High-speed data transfer is possible with IEEE
1394, which supports a peak data transfer rate of
400 Mbps.
❏
The cable can be attached or detached without
switching off the power to the computer or
printer.

Multiple IEEE 1394 devices can be connected
simultaneously in a daisy-chain configuration. In
addition to connecting the printer to the computer
as an IEEE 1394 device via the interface card, you
can also use the same interface card to connect
other IEEE 1394 devices.

Connecting to a computer
The interface card is equipped with two cable
connectors. One is used to connect the card to the
computer, and the other is used to connect other IEEE
1394 devices in a daisy chain. Use the cable supplied
when making the connection. The cable can be
connected without switching off the power supply to
the computer or the printer because it complies with
the IEEE 1394 standard. Cables can be connected
whether the printer or computer are on or off.
When connecting the printer directly to a
computer
1.
Connect the cable connector to the computer's
IEEE 1394 port (FireWire port).
2.
The other cable can be connected to any of the
IEEE 1394 ports on the interface card attached to
the printer (any of the ports may be used).

Testing the Card
Run a self test on the card if the printer is not working
normally, or if the interface cannot be connected to
determine if the card is functioning normally.
When you run the self test, the printer prints the
current card settings and the data from addresses
<30>H to <39>H.
Follow these steps to run a self test:
1.
Switch off the printer power and remove the
power plug from the socket.
2.
If an interface cable is connected to the printer,
disconnect it.
3.
Remove the interface card from the printer. Refer
to the printer manual for details.
4.
Set DIP switch 9 on the card’s circuit board to ON.
5.
Reconnect the interface card to the printer. See
your printer manual for details.
6.
Load paper in the printer.
7.
Plug in the power cable and switch the power on
to start the self test.
8.
Switch off the power and remove the power plug
from the socket when self test is complete.
