This LCD is a self-contained multiplexed unit which provides a simple
interface to a microprocessor system.
The display is available with one I/O connector for both the RS232
interfacing and the power supply.
This unit consists of a liquid crystal display cell and a minimal amount of
electronic hardware. All display characters and control codes can be accessed
in a 8-bit format. Primary complexity is contained within the microprocessor
software, which controls all display functions.
Data is entered serially at 9600 baud rate as default and can be changed to
19200 baud rate per jumper setting. The large characters are easily readable,
and provide comfortable short or long-term viewing.
This unit may be used as a console display which provides alphanumeric

information that is easily readable in wide range of ambient light. It is ideal
for point-of-sale terminals, and a wide range of business and industrial
For serial interface (RS232) PD-7301/7311/7321 to be used in HT or
PB series, you have to adjust during power off the internal jumper of the host
system to supply 5 V DC to the COM port selected for PD-7301/7311/7321.

the main unit has to be opened with sufficient precautions. First
turn the display panel to straight up position. Prepare enough
space in front of the HT system and lay a piece of clean soft
clothe of appropriate size there to prevent damage. With the
back cable cover opened, push in the circled spring button in the

Now please check the back of PD-7301/7311/7321 display head as in
the right picture above. There is a small piece of plastic cover for the “DIP
switch window”. Slide the cover downward but don’t pull it off otherwise you
may have to practice for inserting it back. You can find 2 positions of DIP
switches in this window. Adjust for the appropriate command mode used by
the application program according to below table if required. Switch position
counts from left to right and “ON” means pushed up as indicated in the left
picture above.

mode. If the switch is set to IEE mode for PD-7301 all “Chinese characters”
will be displayed in full dots since it is not applicable. The factory default

there is no direct need for any driver. The OPOS (OLE POS) driver or the
JPOS (Java POS) driver does not support the PD-7301/7311/7321 series.

software commands if required.
A two-row message as power on sign will appear on the screen for a
while. Then a under-line cursor will appear at the left-most digit of the top row
for IEE emulation mode and no cursor will appear for other emulation modes.

Part 7
All data in 8-bit format received can be classified into 2 categories as
data to display or command codes for the customer display unit to respond. For
this series, unless under pass through mode or as part of the command code,
any byte between and including <20>h and <FF>h is regarded as
alphanumerical data to display according to ASCII table (the <XX>h means
the hexadecimal expression). The command codes except the clear pass
through flag command in Noritake mode always start with a byte between and
including <00>h and <1F>h. For PD-7321and PD-7311, the command codes
follow the same rule as PD-7301, however, only those between and including
<20>h and <7F>h are taken as alphanumerical data to display according to
ASCII table in 8 x 16 format. Any two bytes with the first byte between and
including <80>h and <FF>h are regarded as the expression for an oriental
language character. When these two bytes fall off the content of the valid
oriental language code table, an invalid character will be displayed.
The below table provides some comparison for selection on command
mode to be used in the application program if it is not yet determined. The list
of commands available in each mode can be found in the appendix.

For application software to use RS232 interfaced PD-7321, there is no
direct need for any driver. The OPOS (OLE POS) driver or the JPOS (Java
POS) driver does not support the PD-7321 series.
Self-test is a very useful feature and can be activated in both Epson
command emulation modes and IEE mode. The self-test starts by sending 1F40 (HEX) and terminates by sending 1B-40 (HEX).
In IEE mode, the test sequence is as follows
a. Clear screen, Cursor home. The PD enters Vertical Scroll Mode.
b. PD shows the power-on message, language type and version.
c. The PD shows and enters “Horizontal Scroll” mode. Then displays
Part 8
20 CHINESE characters (addresses: B0A1, B1A2, B2A3, ……,
BEAF, BFB0, C0B1, ……, C3B4) one by one in bottom row.
d. The PD then shows and enters “Wrap Around Mode” and shows
ASCII code font from 21 to 7F (HEX) starting from Home position.
e. The PD enters and shows “Vertical Scroll Mode” and go to step a
and repeat the test
In Epson mode, the test sequence is as follows
a. Clear screen, Cursor home.
b. The PD enters and shows “VERTICAL SCROLL MODE”, the
power on message in applicable display format (2 rows or 4 rows),
language type, version and a message “OVERWRITE MODE”.
The PD then enters OVERWRITE MODE and displays 20
characters of “A” from home position. Then 20 characters of “B”
also from home position for 2 rows format or from beginning of 2nd
row for 4 rows format.
Clear screen, Cursor home.
The PD shows and enters “HORIZONTAL SCROLL” mode, then
displays ASCII code font of current page from 21 to FF (HEX) in
2nd row.
