About this Manual
This manual covers the printer in combination with an interface module (Personality Module).
The Personality Module (PM) is an integral part of the printer, and the type of PM
used determines the functionality of the printer especially regarding the user and

The Power Supply
Mains Voltage Selection
In general, the mains voltage selection is determined at factory site.
Since an incorrect voltage selection can seriously damage the printer, please
pay special attention to the following:
1. Make sure that the specified voltage on the voltage selector (8) corresponds
to your mains voltage:
either 230 V for 180 to 264 V alternating current
or 115 V for 90 to 140 V alternating current.
2. If it is necessary to change the voltage, slide the selector button to the
required voltage selection.
3. Connect the printer to the mains using the power cord (4). First connect the
cable to the power cord socket and then to the mains.
Note:
As the power cord serves as a safety cut-off, its connection to the printer
must be accessible any time.

1.4
Power ON/OFF Switch
The power ON/OFF switch (10) turns the printer's power supply ON or OFF.
When switched ON the printer performs an internal self-test which checks the
electronics, the print head carriage movement and the interface. Power ON is
indicated by a green LED on the operator panel (53).
When the internal test has been completed successfully the display shows
READY 1 ELQ (or BUSY 1 ELQ in case data has already been transmitted). If
an error occurs the display will show an error message and the printer enters the
STOP mode (see chapter 5.2 Error Messages).

1.6
Inserting Fanfold Paper
The printer has two tractor cassettes (5) for fanfold paper i.e. the LOWER
TRACTOR cassette (default) and the UPPER TRACTOR cassette.
Ensure that the printer is placed in the depression on the top of the stand
(option). If the printer is used without a stand, align the printer with the front edge
of the table. The cables at the back of the printer should be tucked into the cable
clips in order not to block the paper path.
Handling of the Tractor Cassettes
Simply slide the tractor cassettes forward into the respective guides until you
hear a click (see illustration). Remove the tractor cassettes by lifting and pulling
them toward you. Take out the UPPER TRACTOR before inserting paper into
the LOWER TRACTOR. If more than two different fanfold papers are to be
processed, it is useful to work with additional tractor cassettes. They can be
loaded with paper in advance and just need to be plugged into the printer as
required.
1-10
Getting Started
Insert the paper as shown in the illustration; the top edge of the paper must be
equal with the top of the tractors or maximum up to two transport holes above
the tractors. The left perforation should be aligned with the center mark on the
plastic plate.
Paper without vertical perforation should be aligned in such a way that the left
holes are positioned to the left of the center mark on the plastic plate (25).
Inserting paper for the first time or changing to another paper width:
1. Pull the green tractor lock levers (22) forward to release the tractors (23).
2. Roughly adjust the tractors (23) to the paper width, and space out the paper
supports (24) evenly.
3. Open the tractor covers (21) and insert the paper in such a way that the top
edge partly covers the plastic plate (25).
4. Close the tractor covers (21) and move the tractors with the paper until the
left perforation is aligned with the center mark on the plate (25).
5. Lock both green tractor levers.
Note:
The pins of the tractor must be centered in the transport punches of the
paper.

the printer operates correctly.
S PRINT TEST 2 produces a standard letter (ECMA-132) which can be used for
measuring the printer's throughput.
S PRINT TEST 3 lists all available fonts, contains the page count to identify the
actual number of printed pages (see PGCNT in Chapter 4.1), and gives
information on technical releases which are intended for service purposes.
The print tests are printed using the parameters set in the menu, e.g. font, pitch
etc. Refer to chapter 3 Configuring the printer for details.

or
is pressed. From the left to the right macro 1 to macro
4 will be selected. Pressing of key
causes the printer to change in the
STOP-mode and in the display appears the message MACRO 2. Pressing
key [Y] confirms the macro selection and changes the printer into the READY

selected.
If you press one of the above described key erroneously, press
correction.
Note:
for
Macro selection means a change of all configuration parameters of the
macro concerned.
S Lower Row Keys
In case a certain application requires a specific vertical positioning of the
printout on a continuous form, two possibilities are provided for the READY or
BUSY mode:
S vertical position adjustment VERT.POS.ADJ. with key
(90)
S fanfold displacement FANFOLD DIS with key
(91).
S Vertical Position Adjustment (VERT.POS.ADJ.)
(90)
This can be set differently for each macro to exactly position the printout in
relation to the top edge of the form in use. Using this function, the TOP
MARGIN and BOTTOM MARGIN settings are taken into account as well.
The parameter is part of the printer´s configuration set up memory and can
be stored with the SAVE function.
The VERT. POS.ADJ. mode can directly be called up in the status READY
or BUSY by pressing key
. In this case a set up is possible for the
actually paper source of the selected macro. With TRACT. L. V or
TRACT. U. V the printer asks for the value of the lower or upper tractor.

Printer Operation
This parameter covers a range of -15/60 to +240/60 of an inch (0.42 mm),
where "-" is up the page and "+" is further down the page (see also the
table in Chapter 3.4 Configuring the Printer for VERT.POS.ADJ.).
Note:
The set up of VERT.POS.ADJ. will become effective at the next page of
the form. Therefore, it is recommended to perform VERT.POS.ADJ. set up
as long as the paper is in the park position and before starting the print job.
S Fanfold Displacement (FANFOLD DIS)
(91)
A continuous form can manually be displaced by this function when it is
either correctly loaded at the park position or already fed and partly printed.
The Fanfold Displacement mode can only be called up in the status
READY or BUSY.
Note:
The key
has no effect when in the READY or BUSY mode.
As soon as the Fanfold Displacement mode is entered by pressing
,
the printer stops printing and changes into the LOCAL mode. The display
shows the message FANFOLD DIS with the value 0. By pressing
(91)
or
(92) a vertical displacement is possible.

This parameter influences the line counter of the current print job and

Printer Operation
How to Use this Function
Preprinted paper (e.g. bill of lading) has to be adjusted exactly. Following
errors are possible:
S the printed value is too high - the fanfold paper has to be moved a little
bit higher.
S the printed value is too low - the fanfold paper has to be moved a little
bit lower. No backward movement is possible for a form in park position
or with the print head on the first line. The displacement will become
effective on the next page. A negative displacement is possible if this
function is used during a current print job (not at the beginning of the
page).
After pressing
again, paper is fed in case it was in the park position. In
all other cases the paper remains at its actual position. Each further
pressing of
increases the line counter by increments of 1/60 inch. Each
further pressing of
decreases the line counter by decrements of 1/60
inch. Holding of
or
causes the first 20 increments in single steps
(1/60 inch), thereafter in multiplier of ten which results in a continuous
increment or decrement of the offset counter by 1/6 inch. If the reached
value is too high go backwards by pressing
.
The offset to the current position is shown on the display. Dependent on
the status of the internal print buffer, the offset will be immediately
executed after having resumed the printing or after having printed the
remaining data in the internal print buffer. The offset value is not stored in
the configuration set up and influences only the actual line counter. The
maximum displacement range is the distance between the actual position
and the page border plus one full page, but no more than 999 steps (nearly
1 inch). A backward movement is possible from the actual position to the
top of that page.
If the setting is procedure is completed change with
or BUSY mode.
2-6
(93) to the READY
Printer Operation
There are two possibilities for the displacement to become active:
S If a positive displacement is set before starting the print job the printer
will move the paper into the right position first and then start printing.
S If the displacement is set during a print job, the printer prints the
contents of the print buffer. Afterwards, the displacement will become
active. All following data are at the new position.
S Pressing [START/STOP]
(93)
The printer changes into the LOCAL mode (displayed) and turns on the
STOP indicator (52). All printer and paper handling operations are stopped.
After pressing
again, the printer quits the LOCAL or Menu mode.
2.2.3 Meaning of the Keys in the LOCAL Mode
S Lower Row Keys
S Insert or Eject Key
(90)
After pressing the Insert/Eject key, fanfold paper from the park position
is fed into the print position, and fanfold paper from the print position is
fed into the cut/tear off position (depending on the setting or the printer
type). Paper that has been retracted into the cut/tear off by the
Insert/Eject key will be moved automatically into the print position once
the printer receives a print command.
Note:
This key is not active while the top cover is open.

The paper moves 1/90" (0.28 mm) in the direction of the arrows. Holding
down the key results in continuous feeding.
Forward movement of paper from the park position is stopped at the
print position. Forward movement of paper from the print position is
stopped at the tear off position or it will be cutt off (depending of the
setting or of the printer type).
Backward movement of paper is stopped at either the park position, the
print position or the tear off position.

Menu Mode
Instead of having a multitude of dip switches, all operator selectable features are
accessable via the control panel and combined in the printer MENU.
This feature provides:
S easy handling of configuration (interface, etc.)
S quick parameter changes during an application
S a SAVE function to make changes permanent (until purposely reset),
facilitating changes in default settings.
The menu has several levels:
S The first level contains the Main Functions
S Level 2 contains Sub-Functions
S Level 3 allows to select/confirm values and contains further Sub-Functions
S Level 4 allows to select/confirm values
For easy selection of paper source, font, pitch and macro, please refer to the
Quick Settings section in this chapter.

S Press
in the top row of the control panel. As soon as the menu mode has
been activated, the keys in the top row can only be used as cursor keys to
move within the menu tree (up, down, right, and left).
Selection within a level:
S press [[] or [\] key; the keys have a wrap around function, i.e. after the last
value the first value is repeated.
On the display you will find the following four characteristic types of information:
This display is only shown if you are in the Main Function. To switch to the next
level press [Y].
Now you are in a Sub-Function. Movement in both directions is possible by
using the [Z] key or [Y] key.
In the last level, labelled select/confirm values, the asterisk (’) to the right
indicates the actual selection.
By using the [[] or [\] key, you are able to select a new value. You get the
display:

Printer Operation
2.3.2 To Confirm Selection:
- press [Y]; the confirmed value is displayed with an asterisk (’) in the last
position as shown in the picture before.
Note:
All cursor keys have an auto repeat function.
The new confirmed settings are only valid until the printer is powered off.
To save your settings permanently, see next section.
The MENU mode is left either by pressing
or by moving to the MAIN
FUNCTION level and then pressing the [Z] key.
A number of VALUE settings is summarized in a "Macro". It is possible to have a
total of four macros, each with a different summary of VALUE settings. The
standard macros have the following emulations defined:
Macro
Emulation
1
EPSON LQ 1060, LQ 2550 (default)
2
IBM Proprinter XL 24
3
IBM Proprinter XL 24 AGM
4
EPSON LQ 1060, LQ 2550
Macro parameters can be tailored to specific application requirements. This
feature is highly beneficial in case of frequent changes between applications in
multi-user environment. Instead of having to adjust the menu settings each time
before a particular application is starting, the user simply selects the macro
containing the pre-defined set-up configurations.

3 Configuring the Printer
3.1
What is Configuring
This chapter describes how to use the operator panel and menu settings to set
up or configure your printer so that the printer and your computer system can
communicate correctly with each other.
Communication between the two requires that both the computer operating
system and the printer have the same communication settings or features. The
most important of those are:
S protocol
S baud rate
S data bits
S interface type
S parity
You may also need to change some of the printer's other features depending on
your hardware and application requirements, for example:
S paper handling
S text processing.
The MENU mode allows you to access the configuration memory. All settings of
the printer are stored in this memory and can be printed out on a list. The
possible settings are discussed in detail in the following pages.
The menu Print Out illustrates the actual printer set-up. The following steps
show which keys to use to start this printout.

Explanation of the printout on the previous page
The heading PRINT OUT gives information about the VERSION of the printer's
firmware.
The next two headings are followed by two columns of standard settings:
S INTERFACE - for communication between the computer operating system
and the printer it is necessary to have the same communication settings or
features. The standard settings are:
S Buffer

S ADJUSTMENT - all parameters are for adjustment of the printer and the
paper (see also the following pages).
The last part of the printout is a list with all MACRO settings. In this case
MACRO 1 is marked with an asterisk (’) which identifies it as the active macro.
If you do not save new settings, they are lost when you turn the printer OFF and
ON.
If you make modifications via the application in the active macro you will find the
new settings under the heading CURRENT SETTINGS.

Explanation of Individual Menu Items
Main Functions
The following main functions are available:
S MACRO SELECT
To select one of the four macros which can be used for changing quickly the
printer settings for different applications. For example: Application A needs
12" paper and in Application B banking checks are printed.
S CHANGE MACRO
In this part it is possible to create a macro for specific application needs (for
detail information see chapter Function CHANGE MACRO beginning on the
next page).
Note:
Most parameters can be set via the control panel or via escape sequences
from the host computer.
S INSTALLATION
In the first sub-function named INTERFACE you can manipulate parameters
to enable communication with the host.
In the second sub-function labelled ADJUSTMENT you can optimize your
printouts.
S SAVE
Any desired changes to the default settings can be saved here. After power
ON and OFF the new settings are still activated.
While this function is executed the display flashes SAVING NOW.
3-6
Configuring the printer
S PRINT OUT
This function initiates a printout of the parameter settings and macro
definitions. This printout is helpful for future reference and when macros need
to be changed.
To actually start the print operation it is necessary to leave the STOP mode
(by pressing the
key - see also Chapter 3.1).
While this function is executed the display shows PRINT OUT.
Main Function CHANGE MACRO
S Font
A font is a family of characters with the same style and size. The appearance
of the font can be varied by using attributes such as: size, bold, italic, etc.
The fonts included in the PM are:
S Data
S Roman
S San Serif
S Courier
S Prestige
S Script
S OCR B
S OCR A
S Orator-C
S Orator
S DATA LARGE
see Appendix B for print samples.
Note:
PRINT TEST 3 lists all available fonts. The firmware of the printer
indicates also barcodes. Detail information for printing barcodes are in
Appendix F Barcodes Quick Reference.
3-7
Configuring the printer
S Print Quality
Is splitted up into:
S Font Quality
Three different font quality levels can be selected:
S Draft quality (font "Data")
S Near letter quality (NLQ displayed with the font name)
S Letter quality (LQ displayed with the font name).
and
S Graphics Quality
Four different graphics quality levels can be selected:
S Standard
S Win. LQ 180 DPI
S Win. NLQ 90 DPI
S WI. Draft 60 DPI
Note:
Different print / graphics qualities result in different print speed..
S Sub/Super Font
When the SUB/SUPER FONT is set to "NO", sub and superscript text will be
raised or lowered a half line, but the text size itself will not change.
When set to "YES", the text size will be reduced, and printed above or below
the line.
Example: YES
52 or 52
NO
52 or 52
S Pitch
Indicates the number of characters printed per inch (10, 12, 15, 17, 18, 20 or
proportional).
Any pitch setting can be combined with any available font. In some cases this
may lead to a conflict with font designs. The pitch setting is, therefore, a
matter of personal taste.
S Line
Determines the number of lines per inch (line space).
3-8
Configuring the printer
S Page Length
Page length is expressed in terms of lines within the range of 5 to 132 lines.
Any page length setting is based on six lines per inch, regardless of the
number of lines per inch selected in the line setting or defined by the
application.
The following indicates the number of lines for the most common paper sizes.

The tear-off/cut mode and top/bottom margins use the page length setting as
a basis.

S Vertical Positioning Adjustment (VERT.POS.ADJ.)
This can be set differently for each macro to exactly position the printout in
relation to the top edge of the form in use. It is meant to be a corrective
parameter to meet variations in paper size and pre-printed material. Using this
function, the TOP MARGIN and BOTTOM MARGIN setting are taken into
account as well.
This parameter covers a range of - 15/60 to + 240/60 of an inch, where "-" is up
the page and "+" is further down the page.

The set up of VERT.POS.ADJ. will become effective at the next page
of the form. Therefore, it is recommended to perform
VERT.POS.ADJ. set up as long as the paper is in the park position
and before starting the print job.
S The left margin is set in 1/10" steps, depending on the actual selection. The
first left margin position is 1/20" from the left edge of the paper which means
that the letter H in regular "Data" font would be positioned 1/20" from the left
edge of the paper. The left margin can be set to a maximum of 15/10".
3-10
Configuring the printer
S The right margin is set to print position 80, 132 or 136, always measured
from the position of the first possible, not actual, left margin setting.
The left margin setting is influenced by the physical setting of the left tractor.
The above specifications are only correct if the tractors are in the original
positions, i.e. the left perforation is aligned with the center mark on the plastic
plate (distance between the marks is 1/10").
S The top margin indicates the first print line and is always set in steps of 1/6".
The position of the first margin is 1/6" from the top of the paper and indicates
the baseline of the letter H in upright "Data" font (see illustration).
The top margin can be set to a maximum of 16/6" down on the paper.
3-11
Configuring the printer
S The bottom margin indicates the last print line. Going beyond this margin
automatically initiates a form feed. The bottom margin is always set in steps
of 1/6".
The bottom margin can be set to a maximum of 8/6".
The above specifications are influenced by the settings in "Vertical Position"
(see section Vertical Positioning Adjustment in this chapter).
S Perforation Skip
If PERF. SKIP is set to YES the printer starts to print after specified top
margin and stops printing before the bottom Margin.
If PERF. SKIP is set to NO the printer ignores the top and bottom margin and
prints from the very first line to the very last one. That means that on a
standard 11" paper 66 lines are available for printing.
S Paper Source
The printer offers three input possibilities:
S TRACTOR LOWER (default)
S TRACTOR UPPER
S TRACTOR L/U (pool), that means that the printer switches automatically to
the other cassette once the cassette in use is out of paper. The empty
cassette can be loaded again and thus be ready for the next automatic
switch if needed. The pool function requires the use of the same type of
paper in both tractor cassettes.
Note:
3-12
Please refer to chapter 6 Technical Data, for detailed media
specifications.
Configuring the printer
S Paper Exit (only for CI - 4080)
It is possible to choose between BATCH (to leave the printer at the rear) and
STACKER (at the top) via the point PATH.
If BATCH is selected, the paper keeps its continuous form and leaves the
printer at the rear. The cutter is not activated by default. If print jobs need to
be separated, the cutter must be activated.
If STACKER is selected the fanfold paper automatically leaves the printer as
cut sheets which are collected face down in the stacker at the top. The paper
is cut along the perforation as long as no other form length has been defined.
The form length can be determined in the menu or by the application. Printing
briefly stops when the paper arrives at the cut station. The paper gets cut and
is transported to the stacker. Afterwards, printing resumes.
Note:
If, for some reason, it is not desired to print exactly on the perforation it is
very important to cut below the perforation of the printed page. If the
paper is cut above the perforation the remaining paper can easily bend
and cause a paper jam. Do not cut through a label as the blad would get
dirty by the glue.
S STACK.CAPACITY (capacity at the top)
(only for the CI - 4080)
S BATCH CAPACITY (capacity of the option at Cut Sheet Tray at the rear)
(only for the CI - 4080)
To control the capacity of the Stacker or the Cut Sheet Tray use these two
functions. Capacity can be defined in steps of 20 single sheets.
S STACK.CAPACITY in the range from 20 to 200 and
S BATCH CAPACITY from 20 to 600 sheets. (single sheet paper, see
chapter 6 Technical Data, paper specification )
Change of Paper Exit (only for the CI - 4080)
When switching from one paper exit to the other, paper in the printer moves
automatically to the cut station where it is cut at the perforation below the last
printed page.
3-13
Configuring the printer
S Emulation
The emulation determines the set of commands available for the printer (see
Appendix D and E).
S EPSON LQ
S IBM PROPR.
S IBM PROPR.AGM
S EPSON LQ
Note:
The selected Emulation will also be stored in the actual macro. With a
change of the macro (e.g. key
,
,
or
is pressed) it is
possible that the emulation will also be changed. Be careful: Do not
change the emulation within an application.
S Character Set
When selecting a character set it can be further specified by the
corresponding national versions.
Detailed tables of the character sets can be found in Appendix B.
If a different macro is selected the default character set may change,
e.g. - IBM PROPR. emulation has the character set IBM SET 2 as default.
- EPSON emulation has the character set EPSON EXT.GCT as
default.
S Line Mode
If LF = LF + CR is selected, the printer performs a carriage return (CR) for
every line feed (LF) received via the interface.
If CR = LF + CR is selected, the printer performs a line feed (LF) for every
carriage return (CR) received via the interface.
S $$ Commands
This function causes $$ either to be printed as $$ or to activate ESC
commands within an application.
If this function is set to YES the characters are interpreted by the printer in the
following way:
S $$ as ESC [
S $$/ as ESC.
3-14
Configuring the printer
S Tear-off-mode / Cut-mode
In case the selection of paper exit for the CI - 4080 is "STACKER", each form
will be cut automatically and laid down into the stacker.
If for the CI - 4080 "BATCH" is selected or the CI - 4070 is in use, the
following choices of either automatic feeding into the tear off position or
automatic cutting are available:
S NO
S TEAR - OFF 10 S
S TEAR - OFF 1 S
S CUT 10 S
only for CI - 4080
S CUT 1 S
only for CI - 4080
S CUT 1 S NO FF
only for CI - 4080
S CUT MODE ON
only for CI - 4080
Disregarding these settings for the CI - 4080, the printer will always cut the
paper when a switch from one tractor to the other has been initiated. In this
case the CI - 4070 gives the message TEAR OFF Furthermore, all settings
can be overruled by software (Command SPSIF, cut mode on).
Note:
If in the CI - 4080 the page before the last gets cut it is not possible to
print on the very last page of the fanfold batch because it has left the
transport pins of the tractors.
The setting NO means, that neither automatic feeding into the tear off position
nor automatic cutting is performed. It is appropriate for batch output of
continuous forms.
The setting TEAR - OFF 10 S causes the paper to move into the tear off
position if no new printing data have been received within 10 seconds. This
setting supports applications lacking a programmed form feed after the
completion of a print job. If printing data are received for the page at the tear
off position after 10 seconds the page is moved back so that printing can
resume at the last print position. If the page has already been torn off printing
will be continued at the top of the next page.
3-15
Configuring the printer
The setting TEAR - OFF 1 S causes the paper to move to the tear off position
when the print job has been completed by a form feed command and no new
print job has been received within one second. If the paper is not torn off and
new printing data are received the paper moves back into the printer to allow
the following page to be printed.
The setting CUT 10 S (CI - 4080) causes the form to be cut if no further
printing data have been received within a print job for a period of 10 seconds.
After cutting, the paper moves immediately into the top of form position of the
next page. This setting supports applications lacking a programmed form feed
after completion of a print job.
The setting CUT 1 S (CI - 4080) causes the form to be cut if, after a form
feed command, no further printing data have been received within a print job
for a period of 1 second. After cutting, the paper moves immediately into the
top of form position of the next page.
The setting CUT 1 S NO FF (CI - 4080) has the same function as CUT 1 S
but is independent of receiving of a form feed command.
By the function CUT MODE ON and PATH = BATCH in PAPER EXIT the
CI - 4080 will cut continuous forms into single sheets and feed them to the
rear. Use the optional Cut Sheet Tray to collect the sheets. The application
has to control page length. The page length must be at least three inch,
otherwise the printer is unable to through out the sheet.

The factory settings for the interface type are: Shared, 8 Kbyte Buffer, 8 bit
word length, even parity bit, 9600 baud, and DTR protocol.
S BUFFER
Buffer size in Kbyte. The maximum size is 30 Kbyte.
S WORD LENGTH
Length of the data to be transferred; values are 7 or 8 bit.
S I/F TYPE (Interface Type)
the following types are available:
S Parallel
S Serial
S Shared
In case the SHARED interface type is selected the printer switches
automatically between the parallel and serial interface. The first data
received at the port determine which interface port becomes active. The
other interface port will be closed so that only one interface is active at a
time (for detailed information see Appendix A Interface Description).
S BAUD RATE (only indicated if the serial interface is selected)
Controls the speed of data transfer. The possible transfer rates are: 600,
1200, 2400, 4800, 9600 or 19200 bps.
S PARITY BIT (only indicated if the serial interface is selected)
The data transfer will be checked by an even or odd parity bit. The values are:
EVEN, ODD, NONE or IGNORE.
S PROTOCOL (only indicated if the serial interface is selected)
Selectable are: DTR, XON/XOFF, or XON/XOFF + DTR.

Configuring the printer
Sub-Function ADJUSTMENT
S AGC Position
AGC (Automatic Gap Control) is an integral part of the paper handling
capabilities of the printer. It is an automatic adjustment function which
ensures an optimal print quality when using paper of various thicknesses.
The gap adjustment will automatically take place whenever paper is inserted
S after the paper source has been changed
S from park position
S after Power On
S after the printer has been in the STOP mode
S an AGC command has been issued.
The reference point for the measurement of the paper thickness is the AGC
Position of the first print line. Default for the horizontal AGC Position is 24 (=
ink ribbon exchange position), any position from 4 to 131 in steps of
10 cpi can be selected.
An adjustment of the AGC Position is only necessary if a measurement at the
default position does not reflect the paper thickness of the area to be printed
on or if there is a paper edge (e.g. of a label) in that position (the measuring
process requires a plain paper-surface).
In addition to the automatic AGC function, measurements of the paper
thickness at various positions can be executed by the AGC command, or a
specific platen gap can be set using the PCC command. This is to meet the
requirements of forms with complex properties. For details see Appendix D
and E Quick Reference.
3-18
Configuring the printer
S Platen Gap
This adjustment is to be seen as a correctional offset to the platen gap set by
the AGC (Automatic Gap Control) function or a PCC (Programmable Copy
Control) command. It effects all paper paths.
The offset is within the range of -3 to +4. One step is equal to 18 µm.
"-" reduces the gap, "+" increases it.
Note:
This setting should only be changed in exceptional case. The optimum
setting of the platen gap will be done automatically by the AGC or PCC
S AGC Adjust
This is a basic adjustment which is automatically performed at the initial
Power On of the printer, and which thereafter only needs to be initiated after
having exchanged the print head or the platen. It is essential that the ink
ribbon is installed and no paper is in the printer when this procedure is
started. After activating this procedure, the printer displays
INSTALL RIBBON. If the ribbon is installed press
to continue.
S PAPER-IN ADJ (Paper-In-Sensor adjustment)
This parameter logically adjusts the base position of the Run-In-Sensor. The
factory set value is such that the default is set to compensate specific
mechanical tolerances. The adjustment range is from -3 to +4 in 1/60" steps
(0.42 mm), where "-" means an upward movement and "+" a downward
movement. When implemented, the adjustment applies to all paper paths.

Configuring the printer
S CUT. V-POS LO. / CUT. V-POS UP. (Vertical Positioning for Cutting Device
for the CI - 4080 or for the tear off edge on the CI - 4070)
This can be set differently for each paper source (lower and upper tractor) and
is meant to be a corrective parameter to meet variations in paper size and
pre-printed material.
The parameter covers a range of - 15/60" to + 16/60" of an inch, where "-" is up
the page and "+" is further down the page. The default value is zero.
Note:
If, for some reason, it is not desired to cut exactly on the perforation it is
very important to cut below the perforation of the printed page. If the
paper is cut above the perforation the remaining paper can easily bend and
cause a paper jam. Do not cut through a label as the blad would get dirty
by the glue.
The following table shows the possible values in inch and millimetres.

S Uni-Direct.CMD
If NO is selected, commands for uni-directional printing will be ignored. The
default setting of YES means that commands will be carried out to switch from
bi-directional to uni-directional or vice versa.
S TRACT. FF-MODE (Tractor Form Feed Mode)
EXECUTE FF means, every form feed sent to the printer will be executed.
If you set IGNORE FF, only a form feed before printable characters will be
executed, that means blank pages will be avoided.
Special Sub-Items under INSTALLATION
S Language
The operator panel may display its messages in three languages. Select one
out of the following: ENGLISH, DEUTSCH, FRANCAIS.
S RESTORE SET UP

S Self Test
S PRINT TEST 1 (see Chapter 1.8 Print Tests)
S PRINT TEST 2 (see Chapter 1.8 Print Tests)
S PRINT TEST 3 gives information about technical releases and is intended
for service purposes only. Among other information, the
page counter identifies the number of pages printed.
S I/F Test
This function is used to test the serial interface. It enables
test data to be sent out from the printer and returned by
means of a closed loop connector plugged into the serial
interface connector. The test data uses consist of PRINT
TEST 1.
S Hex Dump
This function makes it possible that the data received by the printer can be
analyzed. Control codes are no longer carried out, instead all data is printed
in hexadecimal format and as ASCII characters. Any non-printable characters,
such as carriage return are only represented as a single dot (.) in the ASCII
list.
It may happen that the transmission of data to the printer will be interrupted
during Hex Dump. In this case, printing of data received after the break is
started on the next available line. The result is an irregular right margin which
is not an indicator for any loss of data.

Cleaning Procedure
1. Power the printer ON and remove the top cover.
2. Remove the ribbon cassette.
3. Thoroughly brush and vacuum all accessible areas to remove any paper flock
and dust.
4. Clean the platen's surface, the paper pressure rollers and the transport rollers
using the platen cleaner. In order to access the transport rollers loosen the
green screws and remove the metal bar with the metal rollers.
5. Clean the covers and the operator panel with a damp, lint-free cloth. Do not
use cleaning solvents or excessive amounts of water.
6. Insert the ribbon cassette (see Chapter 1.5 Installing the Ribbon Cassette).
7. Remount the top cover.
Note:
(for CI - 4080) Cutting through a sticky label leaves glue on the blade,
leading to problems with the cutting device. Small parts of a cut through
label could detach from its paper and get stuck under the shield of the print
head or even block the cutter completely. If the shield or the blade gets
dirty it must be cleaned immediately. Use a close with petrol.
Caution: There is danger to get hurt.

Paper Jam
For the following steps stand in front of the printer, facing the tractor cassettes.
S Lift and remove the top cover.
S Grasp the cutter housing (only for CI - 4080) on both sides. Press down the
green knob on the handles (84) using your thumbs and swing the cutter to the
rear. The spring clips (82) will keep the cutter in this position.
The area where paper could be jammed is accessible now.
Note:
On the ledge covering the blade in the CI - 4080 is a label that cautions
against touching the blade.
5-11
Trouble Shooting and Diagnostics
In the following descriptions of paper jam recovery it is assumed that you stand
in front of the printer, facing the tractor cassettes.
S The metal bar going through the paper guide plate above the platen is the socalled "D-shaft" (the shaft has a flattened top and resembles a capital D in its
cross section). There is a green lever to the right end of the D-shaft. If you
swing this lever toward the cutter the pick-up rollers lift slightly, allowing easy
access to paper jammed in that area.
S Remove the green screws holding the paper guide plate. Remove the paper
guide plate by lifting it slightly and pulling the D-shaft toward the right out of its
case. Jammed paper is accessible now.
S If the paper in the CI - 4080 is caught in the guide of the cutter the ledge
covering the blade can be tipped up to access the paper.
S Cutting through a sticky label leaves glue on the blade, leading to problems
with the cutting device. Small parts of a cut through label could detach from
its paper and get stuck under the shield of the print head or even block the
cutter completely. If the shield or the blade gets dirty it must be cleaned
immediately. Use a close with petrol.
Caution: There is danger to get hurt.
Note:
Be careful when accessing the blade in the CI - 4080, it is extremely
sharp.
Depending on which of the above recovery methods have been applied, carry
out the following steps:
S Swing back the D-shaft
S Lead the D-shaft into its case and fasten the green screws on the paper guide
plate
S Swing back the ledge to cover the blade (only CI - 4080)
Grasp the cutter housing (CI - 4080) left and right with both hands and press it
toward the printer so that the handles (84) lock visible and with an audible click.
Reapply and close the top cover. Press

Transmission Protocols and Connection Diagrams
1.2.1 DTR - Ready/Busy
(Supported RS-232C Protocols) - Full Duplex Local Connection
This protocol uses the following signal lines:
S Pin
1 Protective Ground (PG)
S
2 Transmit Data (TXD)
S
3 Receive Data (RXD)
S
5 Clear to Send (CTS)
S
7 Signal Ground (SG)
S
20 Data Terminal Ready (DTR)
Note:
The signal lines TXD (pin 2) and CTS (pin 5) are only necessary if the
Device Status Report is required.
The READY / BUSY DTR protocol uses the DATA TERMINAL READY
(DTR) line to control the transmission of data from the host to prevent a
buffer overflow.
Note:
Printer DTR may be connected to host DSR + CTS or only to host DSR
and a bridge between RTS and CTS.
A-3
Appendix A System Interface Description
Note:
Printer DTR may be connected to host DSR + CTS or only to host DSR
and a bridge between RTS and CTS.
Additional Information
After Power-ON DTR is activated and the printer is ready to receive data.
DTR is deactivated when the interface buffer has only space left for 256 more
characters. Further incoming data will be stored until the interface buffer is full.
All data sent in addition will get lost. DTR is activated again if there is a free
interface buffer space of 512 characters.
DTR is immediately deactivated, if local mode is entered.
It is activated again, if local mode is left and a minimum of 512 bytes interface
buffer is available.
A-4
Appendix A System Interface Description
1.2.2 XON / XOFF
This protocol requires all signal lines.

A-5
Appendix A System Interface Description
Additional Information
After Power-ON DTR and RTS are activated and the printer is ready to receive
data.
XOFF is sent, when the interface buffer has only space left for 256 more characters. XOFF is sent again, at a level of 128 characters buffer space. Further
incoming data will be stored until the interface buffer is full. All data sent in
addition will get lost.
XON is sent when the interface buffer provides space for a minimum of 512
characters.
XON/XOFF can only be sent successfully when CTS is at active state.
When the CTS Mode is set to "CTS ignore" CTS is allways in the active state.
XOFF will be sent immediately if local mode is entered.
XON is sent again, if local mode is left and a minimum of 512 byte interface
buffer is available.

When the interface buffer is full except for the last character, BUSY will not be
reset. BUSY will be reset when buffer space is available again for least 512
characters in the interface buffer. While the printer is offline (Stop Mode)
BUSY remains active until the printer enters the online state again.
A-7
Appendix A System Interface Description
2.2
Transmission Protocol Description
After Power-ON the PE (Paper Empty) signal is set to low level and the SELECT
and FAULT
¯¯¯¯¯ signals are set to high level.
The printer is now ON-LINE and ready to receive data.
Timing
The host sets a print/control character to the 8 data lines.
After a time delay of a minimum of 0.5 µs, the host sends a STROBE
¯¯¯¯¯¯ pulse of a
minimum of 0.5 µs. When the data byte is accepted into the interface buffer the
printer transmits a BUSY signal and an ¯¯¯¯
ACKN pulse.
The ¯¯¯¯
ACKN pulse informs the host that the data has been received and that the
printer is ready to receive new data.
If the interface buffer is full except for the last character the BUSY is not reset in
order to stop the data transfer from the host. The BUSY signal is only reset if
space is available in the interface buffer for a minimum of 512 characters.
While the printer is offline, or a serial interface is active BUSY remains high and
no ¯¯¯¯
ACKN is sent until the printer enters online state or the serial interface is
deselected.

Appendix A System Interface Description
3. Shared Operation
In shared operation the interface buffer capacity is reduced by 256 bytes.
After Power-ON both the serial and the parallel interfaces are available for data
transfer.
If a byte is first recognized by the serial interface the parallel interface is immediately disabled by the BUSY signal. The serial interface is now active and will
operate, using the installed protocols.
If a byte is first recognized by the parallel interface either the DTR signal of the
serial interface is set to OFF or XOFF is sent, depending on the protocol.
If the serial interface starts to receive data while the parallel interface is active, it
is possible to receive 256 bytes of serial data. Any additional serial data will be
lost.
When the interface buffer is completely empty of serial data, and no new data
has been received by the serial interface for more than 10 seconds, both
interfaces are available for data transfer again.
When the interface buffer is completely empty of parallel data and no data has
been received by the parallel interface for more than 60 seconds, the 256 bytes
of serial data will be processed. Afterwards, both interfaces are available for
data transfer again.

Appendix D
IBM ProPrinter Quick Reference
This appendix contains basic information on the IBM ProPrinter 4207, 4208
XL 24 Emulation commands supported in four Printer types:
Printer CI - 4040
Printer CI - 4050
Printer CI - 4070
Printer CI - 4080
Some commands or parameters may be different for a specific Printer type.
In those cases it will be indicated by the PINTER NAME to which pinter a
command or parameter applies.
D-1
Appendix D IBM ProPrinter 4207, 4208 XL 24 Quick Reference
Characters used in control functions appear in monospaced type. Table 1 explains
some of the conventions used.
A pair of numbers separated by a slash ( / ) character indicates Column/Row notation.
This notation refers to the location of a character in a standard code table, such as
ASCII. (example: 1/B = 1B is the hex-code for Escape)
Spaces appear between characters in sequence for clarity; they are not part of the
format.
At the end of this chapter you will find a listing of the IBM ProPrinter Emulation
commands classified by Hex Code and a Hex - Decimal conversion table.
The following conventions are used in the command listings:
Table 1 Conventions
ESC
Pn
Escape (1/B), introduces an escape sequence
Numeric parameter, or number of units that specify a distance or quantity
pertaining to the escape sequence, control function or control string. Accepted
values are 0...9999, may be preceded by + or -.
If the parameter is in normal notation like "200" the programming in hexcode is according to a ASCII table. ("200" = 32,30,30 in hex).
If the parameter must be programmed in hex-code the notation is with a
slash. (1/A = 1A in hex-code)
v1...vn A series of parameters pertaining to the escape sequence, control function or
control string.

EPSON LQ 2550 and ESC/P2 Quick Reference
This appendix contains basic information on the EPSON LQ 2550 Printer
Emulation commands supported in four Printer types:
Printer CI - 4040
Printer CI - 4050
Printer CI - 4070
Printer CI - 4080
Some commands or parameters may be different for a specific Printer type.
In those cases it will be indicated by the PINTER NAME to which pinter a
command or parameter applies.
E-1
Appendix E EPSON LQ 2550 and ESC/P2 Quick Reference
Characters used in control functions appear in monospaced type. Table 1 explains
some of the conventions used.
A pair of numbers separated by a slash ( / ) character indicates Column/Row notation.
This notation refers to the location of a character in a standard code table, such as
ASCII. (example: 1/B = 1B is the hex-code for Escape)
Spaces appear between characters in sequence for clarity; they are not part of the
format.
At the end of this chapter you will find a listing of the EPSON LQ 2550 Emulation
commands classified by Hex Code and a Hex - Decimal conversion table.
The following conventions are used in the command listings:
Table 1 Conventions
ESC
P1
Escape (1/B), introduces an escape sequence
Numeric parameter, or number of units that specify a distance or quantity
pertaining to the escape sequence, control function or control string. Accepted
values are 0...9999, may be preceded by + or -.
If the parameter is in normal notation like "200" the programming in hexcode is according to a ASCII table. ("200" = 32,30,30 in hex).
If the parameter must be programmed in hex-code the notation is with a
slash. (1/A = 1A in hex-code)
v1...vn A series of parameters pertaining to the escape sequence, control function or
control string.

Barcode Quick Reference
1. Introduction
The barcode print facility is available in all three emulations.
2. Programming
There are three escape sequences to print barcodes
- The first sequence is to define the Barcode Header. The type of barcode as
well as all parameters are selected by a header. The header does not affect
any parameters outside the barcode application and remains valid until
another header is transmitted or the printer is turned off. This can be done at
any time but before barcode printing.
The header has the following format:
ESC [ ; P2 ; P3 ; P4 ; P5 ; P6 ; P7 8 z
Note:
8 = Space
- In step two, the ESC-sequence "Set Mode Barcode (SMBC)" starts the
barcode printing.
ESC [ ? 0 h
- Finally, the ESC-sequence "Reset Mode Barcode (RMBC)" will stop printing.
ESC [ ? 0 l
Note:
Between SMBC and RMBC are only printable characters tolerated (no CR
or LF).

Uni-directional or bi-directional printing - standard 0 uni-directional
values are:
Note:
0 or not programmed means no changes
1 uni-directional printing in LQ
2 bi-directional printing in LQ
3 uni-directional printing in NLQ
4 bi-directional printing in NLQ
A switch from uni-directional to bi-directional printing is only possible if the
parameter UNI-DIRECT.CMD is set to YES via operator panel or
ESC-sequence.
Start Position of Barcode Printing
The start position for barcode printing is the current print position.
For both horizontal and vertical printing, the print position after printing barcodes
is the same line as the start position next to the barcode printed.

Appendix F Barcode Quick Reference
2.2
Barcode Programming Examples
Note:
All examples are coded in standard uni-directional printing - that means the
parameter "P7" is not used.
In the following examples, 8 stands for "Space".
The small square
before and after the printed barcode indicates the
actual print position.
Between Start Barcode and Stop Barcode are only printable characters
tolerated (no CR or LF).
