The influence on the environment of radio wave radiation
❏ The Radio Frequency module that can be installed in this product radiates the same high
frequency energy as some other high frequency devices but the level of the energy radiated
from it is suppressed so that it is much lower than the electromagnetic energy radiated from
radio equipment like cell phones.
❏ Under some situations and in certain environments, the use of this equipment is sometimes
limited by the owner of the building or a representative with responsibility for the group.
For example, it may be restricted in the following case:
•
Use in an environment where it may cause interference with other devices and services.
❏ If you do not understand the radio device usage policy in a specific group or environment,
such as an airport, ask permission before turning on the power of this product.
Note about interference
❏ The Radio Frequency module that can be installed in this product generates, uses, and can
radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.
❏ If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or 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 your dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
❏ Never disassemble or modify this product or the installed Radio Frequency module.
❏ Seiko Epson Corporation shall not be liable for interference to radio/TV resulting from
changes or modifications to this product or the installed Radio Frequency module not
expressly approved by Seiko Epson Corporation.
❏ Other radio equipment sometimes uses the same frequency band that this unit uses. To
prevent radio wave interference with other radio equipment, pay attention to the following
matters when you use this product:
•
ii
The Radio Frequency module that can be installed in this product uses the Industrial
Scientific and Medical band (2.4 GHz), DS-SS modulation, and the interference distance
is 40 m.
Rev. D
TM-P60 Technical Reference Guide
•
Other equipment that uses the same frequency band used by the Radio Frequency
module that can be installed in this product includes equipment for industry, science
and medical treatment, microwave ovens, HomeRF, and radio and other broadcasting
equipment (both ones that require a license and ones that do not require a license).
•
Confirm that radio and other broadcasting equipment are not used nearby before using
this product.
•
When trouble occurs, for example, if the Radio Frequency module causes problems such
as radio wave interference, consult your dealer.
Note about security
This section describes security concerns when using a wireless LAN by using the Radio
Frequency module that can be installed in this product. Please also see “Wireless LAN Security”
in Appendix F.
Security is important for the protection of the user’s privacy
A wireless LAN has the advantage that information can be exchanged by using radio waves
instead of a cable. However, radio waves are not confined to a cable and can be received in a
fairly wide area and through obstacles such as walls, so if security is not used, the following
problems may occur.
❏ Communication data can be received by stealth.
A third person can receive private communication data by intercepting the radio waves
intentionally. Such a person could receive items such as the following:
•
Personal information, such a an ID and password or credit card number
•
The contents of e-mail.
•
Data which is communicated between the PC and printer.
❏ Illegal access
A third person can access the network and cause damage such as the following:
•
Personal information and secret information can be removed.
•
Invalid information can be sent as if it were from a legitimate user of the network.
•
Intercepted communication contents can be re-written and sent.
•
Data and the system can be destroyed by an electronic virus.
This product, the wireless LAN card, and the access point have security mechanisms to counter
these problems. If you use the security settings for this product, you can nearly eliminate these
problems.
In some cases, the wireless LAN equipment is not set up before it is sold to the user. Therefore,
to attempt to prevent security problems, always use all the security settings for the wireless
LAN equipment according to the manual.
Rev. D
iii
The security functions, however, cannot guarantee 100% security. Please understand this when
you use this product.
When you cannot set the security by yourself, please ask your dealer.
Seiko Epson Corporation suggests that the security setting is set by the judgment and the
responsibility of user after understanding the possible problems resulting from using this
product without the security settings.

NOTICE
This device conforms to Part 15 of the FCC rules.
This device 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 instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is
no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or 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 transmitter must not be co-located or operated in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.
FCC WARNING
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s
authority to operate the equipment.
Canada
This device conforms to IC, Low Power License-Exempt Radio Communication Devices (RSS-210).
The information such as Certification No., Model Name, and Manufacturer Name are described on the surface of the
module.
SAR
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are associated with using low power wireless
devices. There is no proof, however, that these low power wireless devices are absolutely safe. Low power wireless
devices emit low levels of radio frequency energy (RF) in the microwave range while being used. Whereas high levels
of RF can produce health effects (by heating tissue), exposure to low-level RF that does not produce heating effects
causes no known adverse health effects. Many studies of low-level RF exposures have not found any biological effects.
Some studies have suggested that some biological effects might occur, but such findings have not been confirmed by
additional research. The TM-P60 has been tested and found to comply with FCC radiation exposure limits set forth for
uncontrolled equipment and meets the FCC radio frequency (RF) Exposure Guidelines in Supplement C to OET65. The
maximum SAR value tested for the TM-P60 has been shown to be 0.144W/kg at the body.

The “Memory switch setting utility” can change the Memory switch set to ON or OFF as shown
in the table below:
Note:
When you use this printer with RS-232C interface, you should adjust the “serial communication setting“
(see the table “ Serial communication” (page 2-12).)
The Memory switch can be changed by either one of two methods:
• Memory switch setting utility
• Control by an ESC/POS command
Settings of the memory switch are stored in the NV memory; therefore, even if the printer is turned off, the
settings are maintained. Excessive use of this function may destroy the NV memory. As a guideline, do
not use this function more than 10 times a day.
When you use OPOS or APD, generally you don’t need to adjust memory switch because OPOS or APD
are able to set these items automatically.

3.5 To Confirm the Current Setting of the Printer
This printer has two functions to confirm the current setting of the printer.
❏ Self test mode
This mode prints all settings of the printer and a character printing test on roll paper.
(Ex: serial communication condition, wireless LAN setting, memory switch setting, etc...)
❏ Status sheet printing
This prints wireless LAN settings on roll paper.
3.5.1 Self test mode
The self test lets you know if your printer is operating properly. It checks the control circuits,
printer mechanisms, print quality, control software version, and DIP switch settings.
This test is independent of any other equipment or software, so it is a good idea that run it when
you first set up the printer and if you have any trouble. If the self test works correctly, the
problem is in the other equipment or the software, not the printer.
1. Make sure the printer is turned off and the roll paper cover is closed properly.
1. While holding down the FEED button, turn on the printer using the switch on the front of the
printer. The self test prints the printer settings and then prints the following, cuts the paper,
and pauses.
If you want to continue SELF-TEST printing, please press
FEED button.
1. Press the FEED button to continue printing. The printer prints a pattern using the built-in
character set.
Note:
If you would like to finish the test printing, turn off the power.
2. The self test automatically ends and cuts the paper after printing the following:

3.6.1 Resetting the printer
Reset the printer’s LAN setting to be certain it is correct.
This mode is useful when you need to set the wireless LAN setting of a TM-P60 when the setting
cannot by changed by an Access point, serial cable, or TMNetWinconfig. In this case, reset the
printer to change the printer to Ad-Hoc mode for communication without any access point.
Note:
When you haven’t adjusted the printer’s wireless LAN setting, or you set up the printer with a serial
interface, you can omit the resetting. In this case, omit the resetting; then confirm the current setting.
The printer may beep when turned on. It is caused by the access point’s LAN setting not corresponding to
the printer’s setting. Ignore the beeping.
1. Open the roll paper cover.
2. Turn on the printer's power while pressing down the FEED button.
3. Press the FEED button 6 times.

after the initialization.
Note:
This printer completes the initialization a few seconds after the paper is cut.
3.7 Hexadecimal Dump Mode
This feature allows experienced users to see exactly what data is coming to the printer. This can
be useful in finding software problems. When you turn on the hex dump function, the printer
prints all commands and other data in hexadecimal format, along with a guide section to help
you find specific commands.
To use the hex dump feature, follow these steps:
1. After you make sure the printer is off, open the roll paper cover.
2. While you hold down the FEED button, turn on the printer.
3. Close the cover.

Application Development Information
This section contains usable information to develop POS systems that use this printer.
4.1 About wireless communication
4.1.1 For Application developing
The TM-P60 uses wireless comunication technology; therefore temporary communication
breaks may occur when you move or are in an outside environment. When you develop
application software using wireless communication, you should consider this.
We recommend you confirm whether or not the printer printed after every print data
transmission unit. Detection of communication errors and recovering from such errors are also
important. Data communication without confirmation of printing and detetection of
communication errors may cause data loss.
To ensure heghly reliable data communication, we recommend the use of the status
confirmation function of our genuine OPOS, or Windows Printer Driver (APD).
4.1.2 For Radio field intensity
Wireless communication is related to radio field intensity. The TM-P60 has a function,“Radio
Field Intensity Check Mode” (page 3-5), to confirm the current radio field intensity. This mode
shows the current radio field intensity to the operator.
The function can’t be executed from any drivers (OPOS, Advanced Printer Driver) or ESC/POS
commands.

Note
This section describes the summary of status handling. Refer to “OPOS ADK Application Development
Guide General Functions” for details.
4.4.2.1 Checking the printer state
The state of the printer can be checked through properties supported by the printer. For
example, if the user wants to check if the printer cover is open, the CoverOpen property can be
used.
If OPOSPOSPrinter1.CoverOpen = True Then
MsgBox “Cover is open!”
End If
This and many other events can also be checked by firing a StatusUpdateEvent.
[Event management]
Private Sub OPOSPOSPrinter1_StatusUpdateEvent(ByVal Data As Long)
If Data = PTR_SUE_COVER_OPEN Then
MsgBox “Cover is open!”
End If
End Sub
StatusUpdateEvent can return information on the following items.
STATUS INFORMATION
PTR_SUE_COVER_OPEN
Rev. D
Cover is open.
Application Development Information 4-5
PTR_SUE_COVER_OK
Cover is closed.
PTR_SUE_REC_EMPTY
Receipt paper is out.
PTR_SUE_REC_PAPEROK
Receipt paper is OK.
PTR_SUE_IDLE
Printer State is idle.
When the FlagWhenIdle property is set to TRUE, PTR_SUE_IDLE is sent to inform the
application that the printer is idle. Other than when data is being sent, the printer is in an idle
state, so if FlagWhenIdle is TRUE, an event will be fired when printing is finished. After the
event is fired, FlagWhenIdle will be set to FALSE. By using this value, the information below can
be found out.
*Finding out when multiple asynchronous print jobs have finished printing. When multiple
asynchronous print jobs have been sent to the printer, it is possible to know when they have
finished printing. After setting the AsyncMode property to TRUE and running the PrintNormal
method, change the FlagWhenIdle property to TRUE. When all data has finished printing, the
printer becomes idle and a StatusUpdateEvent is fired to the application with the value of
PTR_SUE_IDLE.
4.4.2.2 Printer Errors and Status
A change in printer status when asynchronous data is being sent is made available to the
program by the firing of an ErrorEvent and StatusUpdateEvent. When the printer changes status
while nothing is happening, the change is told to the program by a StatusUpdateEvent only.
As an example, assume that the printer cover becomes open. Usually, when data is not being
sent to the printer and the cover is opened, a StatusUpdateEvent is fired to the application. After
the AsyncMode property is set to TRUE and a method is used to print data, if the cover is
opened while the data is being sent, the program is notified by an ErrorEvent. ErrorEvents are
fired when the error has interrupted the data that is being sent. Only StatusUpdateEvent will
fire when the error does not effect the data and the data will continue being sent as normal.
Reasons for the ErrorEvent being fired and the corresponding error names are listed below.
ResultCode/ ResultCodeExtended Reason
OPOS_E_ILLEGAL
There is an abnormality with the device. (Includes the
following 1 error)

4.4.2.3 ESC/POS commands
When you use ESC/POS commands to control the printer, you can get the status by using
“status command” including Auto Status Back command (ASB.) Please refer to “ESC/POS
APG.”
4.5 NV memory
This printer has NV memory (Non-volatile). The data of NV memory remains after you turn off
the power. The NV memory is available in two ways.
1. NV Graphics
Please refer “NV Graphics Printing” (page 4-8) for details of the function.
2. User NV memory
There is free area in the NV memory that the user can use. You can use this free area for
notations, to write other character information, or for many other purposes. The data
remains after you turn off the power. Use ESC/POS commands to read and write this data.
The following are examples of purposes.
•
Date of the printer for maintenance
•
ID definition for developer or POS system
Note
When you use User NV memory area by using OPOS or APD, you have to use “Direct I/O method”
or “Control A font.” Please contact EPSON or your dealer for details.
Note the following when writing to and erasing NV memory.
❏ The following restrictions apply when performing NV memory operations (including data
writing and erasing).
Rev. D
•
The paper FEED button must not be used to feed paper.
•
The real-time command must not be executed.
Application Development Information 4-7
•
The ASB status will not be sent, even when the ASB function is set to enabled.
❏ The printer sometimes enters the Busy state while data is written to NV memory. It is
important not to send data from the host computer while the printer is in the Busy state, as it
will be incapable of processing any received data.
❏ Frequent use of the functions for writing to and erasing data from NV memory can damage
the memory. As a rule in using the various commands, avoid writing to NV memory more
than 10 times per day.
4.6 NV Graphics Printing
This printer has an “NV Bit-Graphics“ Function. This function provides printing Graphics (e.g. a
shop logo.) This function is available for any control method (APD, OPOS, ESC/POS
command.)
EPSON provides a utility, “TMFLogo,” that enables registration of a bitmap image in the NV
memory of an EPSON TM series printer. The bitmap image in the NV memory can be printed
with the printer by using each control method.

Note1: manner of ”ESC |cA” and “ESC |rA”
Characteristics are reset at the end of each print method or by a “Normal” sequence, so these escape
sequences cannot be used in the following manner.
OPOSPOSPrinter1.PrintNormal PTR_S_RECEIPT, Chr(&H1B) + ”|cA” + ”123”
OPOSPOSPrinter1.PrintNormal PTR_S_RECEIPT, “456” + Chr(13) + Chr(10)
The “123” characters will be printed in the center, but not under “456”. When using a new method to
print characters, it is necessary to add the desired escape sequence again.

Note2 : limitation of ”ESC |cA” and “ESC |rA”
*During rotated printing mode (Left90, right90), these escape sequences will not work.
*These will not work if they are not the first character of a line.
*It is not possible to use these on PrintBitmap method.
4.6.2.4 Printable bitmap format in OPOS
The printable bitmap formats are formats that meet all the following conditions.
❏ BMP files
❏ Monochrome, 16-color (4 bit), 256-color (8 bit)
❏ Uncompressed
4.6.3 ESC/POS command
See “ESC/POS Application Programming Guide“ about the method.
4.6.4 Tips for Visual Basic
When programming with Visual Basic, limitations prevent data from 81h through 9Fh and from
E0h through FEh from being sent as characters. Therefore, you may be not able to print a part of
Page 0 (for example
)in Visual Basic.
However, you can use the following procedure to send this data.
Dim Send_ data(0) As Byte
Send_data(0) = &h81 ’1 byte of sending data
MSComm1.Output = Send_data

Appendix A
The Difference Between TM-P60 and TM-T88II/III
TM-P60 is able to print with 42 print columns (when paper width is 58mm and Font B is printed
[default]). The number of print columns is the same as that of the TM-T88II/III (when paper
width is 80mm and Font A is printed [default].) Therefore,the TM-P60 is able to print with same
layout as TM-T88II/III.
This chapter is FAQ for the difference between the TM-P60 and the TM-T88III.
A.1 Can TM-P60 print with TM-T88II/III printer driver?
Unforunately, the answer is No. If you drive the TM-P60 with a TM-T88II/III printer driver
(OPOS, or Advanced Printer Driver), the printer doesn’t work correctly. You have to use a
printer driver for the TM-P60.
A.2 Can TM-P60 send back status to host PC the same as TM-T88II/III?
The answer is yes; however, the kind of status is little different between the TM-P60 and the
TM-T88II/III. The differences are shown in the following table.
Status name
TM-T88II/III

settings.
When “Method for specifying the IP address: Auto” is specified when there is no DHCP server, the TMP60 gets the IP address by APIPA (Automatic Private IP Addressing) method. In this case, the TM-P60
requires about 1 minitue to get the IPaddress after the power is turned on.
The default setting is as follows.
Method for specifying the IP address: “Manual.“
IP Address:
192.168.192.168
Subnetmask:
255.255.255.0

Wireless LAN Network Composition
F.1 Network mode
F.1.1 Infrastructure Mode
This is a method for connecting to an existing wired network using an access point. If multiple
access points are in the same proximity, set their channels at least five channels apart. For setting
the access point, see the manual for the access point.
F.1.2 Ad Hoc Mode
A network connection between personal computers and printers that have a wireless LAN
function is called an “Ad Hoc Mode.” Each piece of equipment can be connected without using
an access point.
This product supports the IBSS AdHoc mode.
To use the Ad Hoc connection, set the network name [SSID], the network key, and the channel of
each device to the same setting.
F.2 Wireless LAN Use
The Radio Frequency module that can be installed to this product uses the IEEE 802.11b
standard and cannot communicate with equipment using IEEE 802.11a and IEEE 802.11g.
The distance between the communicating wireless LAN equipment must be 25 meters or less,
but the distance of possible communication depends on the environment. Also, the
communication speed sometimes declines at longer distances.
The wireless LAN can be set to any one of 11 channels, but when another wireless LAN network
is using a channel with a similar number, it sometimes interferes. Therefore, set the two
networks to channels that are at least 5 channels apart.
Place the access point, the built-in wireless LAN system, and the printer separate from other
electronic devices. Specifically, equipment such as microwave ovens that emit high frequency
energy can cause interference. If this happens, move the wireless equipment or the interfering
equipment so that there is no more interference.
Radio and other broadcasting equipment can also interfere with the wireless communication. If
this happens, move the access point and the printer away from the interference.
Because Bluetooth and the wireless LAN use the identical frequency band (2.4GHz), signal
interference sometimes occurs when they are used close together. Separate them by more than
10 meters.

Wireless LAN Network Composition F-1
F.3 Wireless LAN Security
F.3.1 Security of a wireless LAN
Why does a wireless LAN need a security function?
A wireless LAN is designed to be constructed easily without the labor of wiring, In the wired
LAN environment, because the communication flows through a network cable, the cable must
be connected physically to tap or monitor the communication contents and/or tamper with the
data. But with wireless, the communication is broadcast and susceptible to interception.
Communicating on a wireless network without using security is the same as leaving your house
without locking the door. Therefore, we recommend using wireless security options. A wireless
LAN needs better security measures than a wired LAN does.
What kind of security functions does the wireless LAN have?
To prevent above-mentioned problem, the wireless LAN of the IEEE802.11 method is provided
with the security functions described below, which can be set easily by the developer and the
end user.
Not setting security at all with a wireless LAN is the same as going out without locking the door
of your house. These security functions attempt to prevent your data from being monitored or
tampered with by a third party.
For increased wireless security, you can use such methods as a Radius server and Internet
Protocol Security (IPSec).
F.3.2 Security Function Outline
SSID (Service Set Identifier)
This is the ID which specifies an access point of the connection place; only wireless LAN
terminals that are set to the same SSID can connect with each other.
WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)
This encrypts data between the access point and the wireless LAN terminal with a common
encryption key (the WEP key).
MAC (Media Access Control)
This is address filtering. After registering a unique number (the MAC address) of each wireless
LAN terminal; this allows only the registered terminals to connect to the wireless LAN.
F.3.3 Outline of Each Security Function
SSID Setting
The SSID must be set to a unique name of the network to distinguish it from the other networks.
(It is set to “EpsonNetIBSS” at the factory.) Because a third person can see the SSID easily, the
SSID does not have a security function. However, setting SSID to the name of the company
using the network may provoke unnecessary interest by third parties.We recommend using an
SSID that has no meaning to outside parties.
F-2 Wireless LAN Network Composition
Rev. D
TM-P60 Technical Reference Guide
WEP Setting
WEP is the function to encrypt the wireless data. It is currently the most effective standard
security function. Because the factory setting for the WEP encryption key setting is Enabled, you
must set it to Disabled to connect it to a wireless network. Once it is connected, you can set the
WEP encryption key in the printer to the same as the key in the network. When it is possible to
set the WEP key to 128 bits or 64 bits, select 128 bits to make it harder to decipher the key. We
also recommend changing the WEP key regularly in case it is ever deciphered.
MAC Address Filtering
This prohibits a connection to an access point by any device that does not have a MAC address
registered with the network. This can prevent tampering with your data but it does not prevent
unauthorized monitoring of your data. Because there is possibility to be monitored, we
recommend using the MAC address together with WEP.
Note:
Just as you can protect your house better with two locks instead of one, you can protect your network
better by using more than one security feature. We recommend using all three of the above functions.
