❏ Printer Class: Configures the printer to the printer class.
❏ Vender Class: Configures the printer to the vender class.
If you change the USB class from Vender Class to Printer Class, the printer becomes a Printer Class device. The
computer detects the printer as a new Printer Class device and creates a new port.
Using the newly created port, you can print but cannot use the EPSON Status API. The existing port still allows you to
both print and use the EPSON Status API, so you can delete the newly created queue and use the existing queue
instead.
How to distinguish the EPSON Status API available port
Select Properties - Ports and check the Port and Description.

Application Development Information
This chapter explains how to control this printer and gives information useful for printer application development.
How to Control the Printer
The printer is controlled by the drivers or ESC/POS commands.
Driver
Printer Driver
This is an Windows driver (APD = EPSON Advanced Printer Driver) which allows you to control POS operations,
such as printing logos and barcodes, controlling paper cutting function and cash drawer. See this manual for more
details about the printer driver. The driver includes Status API which allows you to monitor the printer status, and to
send the ESC/POS commands.
See the following manuals and sample programs provided with EPSON Advanced Printer Driver Ver.5 for further
details on using the driver and how to develop an application using the Status API functions.
❏ Install Manual
❏ Printer Manual
❏ Printer Specification for TM-T20II
❏ Status API Manual
UPOS
This stands for Unified Point of Service. It is the standard specification of POS market, which defines drivers for
controlling POS peripheral devices in various operation environments. Using the driver, you can develop POS system
efficiently because you do not need to newly create commands. The following TM-T20II drivers that conform to
UPOS are provided. Use one of them in accordance with your system environment.
❏ EPSON OPOS ADK
Suitable for an application that operates the printer under 32-bit version of Windows.
❏ EPSON OPOS ADK for .NET
Suitable for an application that operates the printer under Windows .NET environment.
❏ EPSON JavaPOS ADK for Windows
Suitable for an application that operates the printer under Windows Java environment.

* This guide describes general information on how to control printers using the OPOS ADK (in the chapter POS
Printer and Appendix-A). It does not describe Epson's specific functions.
ESC/POS Commands
The ESC/POS command is the printer command system developed by EPSON. This allows you to directly control the
all functions of the printer. Using the commands with the driver, you can use a function that is not provided by the
driver.
Compared to using the drivers, using the commands is difficult because you need to have knowledge about the detailed
printer specifications and how to combine the commands.
Refer to the ESC/POS Quick Reference for a simple explanation of the ESC/POS command. A detailed explanation of
the ESC/POS command is included in the ESC/POS Application Programming Guide. You can obtain this guide by
signing a non-disclosure agreement with Epson.
Storing Logos
!Caution:
❏ You cannot store UPOS SetBitmap logos and logos configured using TM-T20II Utility in the same printer.
❏
When a SetBitmap logo is stored, it overwrites and deletes an existing TM-T20II Utility logo.
The procedure to store logos differs by your system configuration as follows.
❏ When using the Advanced Printer Driver only
Use TM-T20II Utility to store logos.
❏ When using the OPOS and Advanced Printer Driver on the same system
