• Follow all indications and instructions
given on the device.
• Make sure that the surface on which
the device rests is stable. If it is not, the
device could fall, seriously damaging it.
• Make sure that the device rests on a hard
(non-padded) surface and that there is
sufi cient ventilation.
• When positioning the device, make sure
cables do not get damaged.
• Use the type of electrical power supply
indicated on the device label. If uncertain, contact your dealer.
• Make sure the electrical system that
supplies power to the device is equipped
with a ground wire and is protected by a
differential switch.
• Do not block the ventilation openings.
• Do not insert objects inside the device as
this could cause short-circuiting or damage components that could jeopardize
printer functioning.
• Do not carry out repairs on the device
yourself, except for the normal maintenance operations given in the user
manual.
• Make sure that there is an easily-accessible outlet with a capacity of no less
than 10A closely to where the device is
to be installed.
• Periodically perform scheduled maintenance on the device to avoid dirt build-up
that could compromise the correct, safe
operation of the unit.
• Before any type of work is done on the
machine, disconnect the power supply.
• Do not touch the head heating line with
bare hands or metal objects. Do not
perform any operation inside the printer
immediately after printing because the
head and motor tend to become very
hot.

The parameters marked with the symbol D are the default values.
Settings remain active even after the printer has been turned off and they are stored in non-volatile memory.
PRINTER EMULATION
Available emulations for the device:
PLUS D
ESC/POSTM
RS232 BAUD RATE
Communication speed of the serial interface:
115200
57600
38400
19200
9600 D
4800
2400
1200
NOTE: Parameter valid only with serial interface.
RS232 DATA LENGTH
Number of bit used for characters encoding:
7 bits/car
8 bits/car D
NOTE: Parameter valid only with serial interface.
RS232 PARITY
Bit for the parity control of the serial interface:
None D = parity bit omitted
Even = even value for parity bit
Odd =
odd value for parity bit
NOTE: Parameter valid only with serial interface.
RS232 HANDSHAKING
Handshaking:
XON/XOFF D = software low control
Hardware =
hardware low control (CTS/RTS)
NOTES:
Parameter valid only with serial interface.
When the receive buffer is full, if handshaking is set to XON/XOFF, the printer sends the XOFF ($13) on the
serial port. When the receive buffer has cleared once again, if handshaking is set to XON/XOFF, the printer
sends the XON ($11) on the serial port.
BUSY CONDITION
Activation mode for Busy signal:
OffLine/ RXFull = Busy signal is activated when the printer is both in OffLine status and
the buffer is full
RXFull D =
Busy signal is activated when the buffer is full
NOTE: Parameter valid only with serial interface.

USB ADDRESS NUMBER
Numerical address code for the univocal identiication of the USB device (in case of more
than a USB device connected with the same PC):
0D

Printing mode:
Normal D = enables printing in normal writing way
Reverse = enables printing rotated 180 degrees
AUTOFEED
Setting of the Carriage Return character:
CR disabled = Carriage Return disabled
CR enabled D = Carriage Return enabled
CHARS / INCH
Font selection:
A = 13 cpi, B = 17 cpi D
A = 17 cpi, B = 22 cpi
NOTES:
CPI = Characters Per Inch
COLUMNS 22 CPI
Number of columns to use when the 17x22 cpi font is in use (see parameter CHARS /
INCH):
40 columns D
42 columns
NOTES:
The parameter is printed only with PLUS emulation enabled.
To modify the parameter, set the PLUS emulation (see parameter PRINTER EMULATION) and the 17x22cpi
font (see parameter CHARS / INCH):
CODE TABLE [num]
Identiier number of the character code table to use.
The numeric value of the identiier is made up with the following two parameters for the
setting of two digits for the tens and the units:
Setting the digit for tens:
CODE TABLE [num x 10]
0D

NOTES:
See the paragraph 7.5 to learn about the character tables corresponding to the identiication numbers set with this parameter.
The character tables set with this parameter are the same set with the command $1B $74 (refer to the
Commands Manual of the device).

Enables the use of the korean font PC949
NOTE: When the “INTERNATIONAL” font type is enabled, must be selected the desired character code
table (parameter “CODE TABLE”). When the chinese or korean font is enabled, the selection of the character
code table is suspended (par. “CODE TABLE”).
SPEED / QUALITY
Setting of printing speed and printing quality:
Normal D
High Quality
PAPEREND BUFFER
CLEAR
PRINT DENSITY
Cleaning mode of the data in receive buffer, if the printing is stopped due to lack of paper:
Disabled D = The data remain in the receive buffer. When the paper runs out, the printer
keeps the remaining data in the receive buffer and prints the remaining
portion of the ticket after that the new paper is loaded.
Enabled = When the paper runs out, all data in the receive buffer are deleted.
Adjusting the printing density:
-50%
-37%
-25%

Hexadecimal dump
This function is used for the diagnosis of the characters received from the communications port. Characters are printed as
hexadecimal code and the corresponding ASCII code (see below). Each line is preceded by a counter in hexadecimal that
indicates the number of bytes received.
During the startup, if you hold down the FEED key, the printer enters the self-test routine and print the setup report.
The printer remains in standby until a key is pressed or characters are received through the communication port (Hexadecimal Dump mode). For each character sent, the receipt contain an indication of the hexadecimal and ASCII values (if
the characters are underlined, the receive buffer is full). Shown below is an example of a Hexadecimal Dump:

Character sets in ESC/POS™ and PLUS emulation
The printer has 3 internal fonts with a width of 13, 17, 22 cpi, which can be associated with one of the coding tables stored
on the device.
To know the coding tables actually stored on the device, print the font test (see par.2.4).
The selection of the font and the encoding table is done via command (see the commands manual of the device) or through
the Setup procedure by properly setting the parameter “Chars / Inch”, “Code Table” and “Font Type” (see par. 5.4).
The following is the complete list of coding tables that can be installed on the device.
