motors are very hot and could cause burns.
Precautions in handling the fine coating of the case
(only for fine coating case model)
A fine coating is used for the external surface of the plastic case of the printer, which makes
wiping and removing kitchen stains easy; however, you should note the following when
cleaning the surface in order to preserve the quality of the coating (the metal plate and the inside
of the case do not have the fine coating):
❏ Do not scrub the surface with a hard object. Otherwise, the case will be scratched and harder
to clean.
❏ Do not use a cleanser that includes polishing materials such as grains of glass, metal, or
ceramics. Otherwise, the case will be scratched and harder to clean.
❏ Never use disinfectant, bleach, alcohol, benzine, thinner, chlorine solvent, or ketone solvent.
Otherwise, the case will be harder to clean, and the case may be seriously harmed or even
deformed and its color may be changed.
❏ The label may come off of the fine coating of the case if harsh cleaning methods are used.

Precautions in Handling the Fine Coating Case
(only for Fine Coating Case model)
This printer is housed in a plastic case (*) with a fine coating; simple cleaning is enough to enable
dirt to come off easily so that the exterior of the printer remains in good condition. Like plastic
cases, handle the fine coating with care as described below.
(*)Fine coating is not applied to the installation surface of the metal plate, the power supply box
and the inside of the case.
•
Do not scratch the surface with hard objects; otherwise the case may become damaged
and dirt may become difficult to remove.
•
Do not use any type of abrasive agent (glass, metal, ceramic, etc.) to clean the case;
otherwise the surface of the case may become damaged and dirt may become difficult to
remove.
•
Never clean the case with disinfectant, bleach, alcohol, benzene, thinner, chlorine, or
ketone; otherwise the dirt may become difficult to remove. Also, they may cause the case
to become discolored, dissolved, or deformed.
•
Label may come off of the fine coating of the case.
Selecting a Place of Installation
This printer can be installed vertically (standard installation) so that the paper exit faces the
front or horizontally so that the paper exit faces upwards. With the optional wall mounting
bracket (Model No: WH-10) the printer can be wall-mounted.
Note:
Since vibrations are generated during paper cutting, take suitable measures to secure the printer.
❏ Installation on a table (vertical or horizontal installation)
•
Regardless of installation method chosen, the tilt of surface selected must be 15° or less.
•
Attach the supplied switch panel sheet for horizontal installation when the printer is to
be installed horizontally.
•
Adjust the N.E detector and attach the rubber feet as required by the chosen method of
installation.

❏ All cables are to be connected only as described in the manual. Incorrect connection could
cause damage or a fire hazard.
❏ Be sure to set this product on a firm, stable, horizontal surface. The product may break or
cause injury if it falls.
❏ Do not install the printer in extremely humid or dusty locations. Operation under such
conditions could damage the printer or cause a fire or shock hazard.
❏ Do not stand on the printer or place heavy objects on it. The printer could fall or collapse,
causing breakage and possible injury.
❏ For added protection of the printer, disconnect the power plug from the wall outlet when
the printer is not to be used for an extended period of time.
❏ Be sure not to touch the print head or motors when you remove paper jammed in the
printer. Wait until the print head and motors have cooled down before removing jammed
paper. When the printer has been used for an extended period, the print head and the
motors are very hot and could cause burns.
Precautions in handling the fine coating of the case
(only for Fine Coating Case model)
A fine coating is used for the external surface of the plastic case of the printer, which makes
wiping and removing kitchen stains easy; however, you should note the following when
cleaning the surface in order to preserve the quality of the coating (the metal plate and the inside
of the case do not have the fine coating):
❏ Do not scrub the surface with a hard object. Otherwise, the case will be scratched and harder
to clean.
❏ Do not use a cleanser that includes polishing materials such as grains of glass, metal, or
ceramics. Otherwise, the case will be scratched and harder to clean.
❏ Never use disinfectant, bleach, alcohol, benzine, thinner, chlorine solvent, or ketone solvent.
Otherwise, the case will be harder to clean, and the case may be seriously harmed or even
deformed and its color may be changed.
❏ The label may come off of the fine coating of the case if harsh cleaning methods are used.
Waterproof
The TM-U230 is designed as a kitchen printer with protection from water. When it is installed
vertically or horizontally, the printer meets the European Standards IEC 529 for protection
against water of "keeps out water coming from an angle up to 15° from vertical, evaluating IP
level. (The TM-U230 also meets the IEC Standards for protection from tools and thin wires with
a diameter more than 2.5 mm and protection from solid foreign objects with a diameter greater
than 2.5 mm.) The IP code of the TM-U230 when it is installed vertically or horizontally is IP32.
The meaning of the "IP" numbers is described in the next section of this manual.

TM-U230 Developer’s Guide
IP
The ability of an enclosure to keep out dirt and water is defined in IEC 529. When an enclosure
protects the equipment from water and particles of dirt, it also protects people from any
potential hazard inside the equipment.
The degree of protection is designated by the letters "IP" followed by two digits such as "IP01" or
"IP34." The first digit indicates the degree that the equipment is protected from solid foreign
objects. The second digit indicates the degree that the equipment is protected from water. The
details are described in the tables below. The first digit, protection from solid foreign objects, is
divided into "protection from human contact" and "protection from foreign bodies."

Notes on Using GS V Function C
When using GS V function C, there is a possibility of paper not being ejected (or not being cut),
depending on usage.
Programming Samples 4-5
Confidential
Here is an example when executing the following steps.
1. Print receipt A
2. Execute GS V 98 0
3. Print receipt B
4. Execute GS V 98 0
5. Print receipt C
6. Execute GS V 98 0
If the cutting ranges designated in step 4 and 5 have not reached the autocutter position, Receipt
B and C will not be cut. Even if they have reached the autocutter position and have been cut, the
receipts do not reach the paper exit. With this condition, if the next printing is not performed,
Receipts B and C will not be ejected. Therefore, be sure to take the following into consideration.
Executing paper feed after a certain time has passed or executing a cut with GS V 66 0 for each
receipt.

Contorol of The Buzzer
TM-U230 has ESC(A command, which can control the internal buzzer. ESC(A command is
supported by the Firmware version 1.02 and above. You can confirm the Firmware version by
the following procedure.
<Starting the self test>
1. Hold on the FEED button and turn on the printer with the paper roll cover opened.
2. Printer then prints the current printer status(Control ROM version, DIP switch settings)
on a roll paper.
This chapter describes the programming samples of DirectIO in OPOS.

Chr(&H1B)+"(" + "A" + Chr(&H5) + Chr(&H0) + Chr(&H61) + Chr(&H64) + Chr(&H5) +
Chr(&H0A) + Chr(&H0A) is the printer command that controls the internal buzzer. The internal
buzzer beeps five times at intervals of one second. Format of the ESC(A command is as follows.
[Format]
ASCII ESC ( A pL pH fn n c t1 t2

Refer to the TM-U230 series specification for more details of ESC(A command.
Refer to OPOS manuals for the programming using OPOS.
The following explanations are the details about programming samples using Control-A font in
EPSON Advanced Windows Driver.
Edit the TMCTRLA.INI as follows so that the buzzer control command ESC(A is assigned to
“A”(code41) of control-A font.
[TM-U230]
41=1B284105006164050A0A
“41=1B284105006164050A0A” in the description above assigns the buzzer control command
ESC(A to “A”(code41) of control-A font. This data specifies the internal buzzer to beep five
times at intervals of one second.
