FCC COMPLIANCE STATEMENT
FOR AMERICAN USERS
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digita1
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 instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio
or television reception. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur
in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio
and 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 device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following
two conditions:
(1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and
(2) this device must accept any interference received,
including interference that may cause undesired operation.
FOR CANADIAN USERS
This digital apparatus does not exceed the Class B limits for radio noise emissions from
digital apparatus as set out in the radio interference regulations of the Canadian Department of Communications.
Le présent appareil numérique n’émet pas de bruits radioélectriques dépassant les
limites applicables aux appareils numèriques de Class B prescrites dans le réglement sur
le brouillage radioélectrique édicté par le Ministère des Communications du Canada,
WARNING
The connection of a non-shielded printer interface cable to this printer will invalidate the
FCC Certification of this device and may cause interference levels which exceed the
limits established by the FCC for this equipment. It is the responsibility of the user to
obtain and use a shield equipment interface cable with this device. If this equipment has
more than one interface connector, do not leave cables connected to unused interfaces.
Seiko Epson Corporation shall not be liable against any damages or problems arising
from the use of any options or any consumable products other than those designated as
Original Epson Products or Epson Approved Products by Seiko Epson Corporation.

INTRODUCTION
About this guide

INTRODUCTION
The Parallel Interface C82310* is an interface card that
allows parallel data communication between a host
computer and an Epson printer.
This card has the following features:
Ž A 32 Kbyte buffer that frees up your computer for
other uses while your printer continues to print
Ž A self-test function that can help solve interface
problems
2
About this guide
This guide tells you how to install your C82310* interface
card in a variety of Epson printers.
Also included are instructions on how to adjust the
settings of the C82310* interface card, as well as a general
description of parallel data communication.
The C82310* option package contains the following
items:
C82310 * parallel l/F Card

SETTING THE CONDITIONS
The C82310* interface card has two sets of DIP switches,
and five jumpers. These switches and jumpers are used
for selecting various interface operations.
Card layout
The figure below shows the layout of the C82310* card
and the locations of the DIP switches and jumpers.
Figure 2. Card layout
4
DIP switch and jumper settings
Before you install the C82310* interface, you may need
to adjust DIP switch 1 and jumper settings. You can
change switch 2 settings after you install the interface.
When making DIP-switch setting changes, use a pointed
device such as a ball-point pen or small screwdriver.
Caution
Always turn the power off before changing DIP-switch
and jumper settings. New settings take effect when the
printer is turned back on.
DIP switches
Setting DIP switches allows you to change interface
functions. The two sets of switches are labeled SW1 and
SW2. SW1 contains several individual toggle-type
switches that can be set either on or off. The individual
switches are referred to by set (SW1) and number. For
example the switch in set SW1 marked by the small
number 3 is called DIP switch 1-3.
5
DIP switch 1 (interface operations)
The table below contains information on switch functions, and the factory setting of each switch.
Table 1. DIP switch 1
Note
When DIP switch l-l is set to ON, the interface card can
continue store data in the buffer memory even though
the printer is in an OFF LINE or PAUSE state.
Switch 2

Some printers have a switch (or function) that allows you
to select between the optional and original interface. If
you install the C82310* interface card in this type of
printer, set the interface card’s DIP switch 2 to ON and
also change the setting in the printer to select the
optional interface.
Jumpers
A jumper is a small plug used for connecting or disconnecting a circuit. The jumper is on when the jumper
plug covers both wires of the terminal. Jumper settings
can be changed by either attaching or removing the
rectangular jumper plug. If the jumper is to be turned
off, connect it to only one of the two terminal pins as
shown in the figure below. This prevents your losing the
unused jumper plug.
Figure 2. Jumpers

The tables below describe the interface conditions that
can be selected using jumpers. In all cases, ON means
you connect the jumper (cover both terminals), while
OFF means you disconnection of the jumper.

DATA ENTRY
About data entry
For quick data entry, the C82310* interface card is
equipped with a buffer that temporarily stores data
before it is printed. When this buffer becomes full, the
interface card send a BUSY signal . (Reception of data
during this state cannot be guaranteed.)
The data in the buffer is automatically sent to the printer
when the printer indicates it is ready to accept more
data.
9
SELF TEST
You can run the self test by first turning off the printer
and then turning on DIP switch l-3. When you turn the
power back on, the self test begins. To exit from the self
test, turn off the power and turn DIP switch 1-3 off.
The interface card first checks the RAM condition. After
checking the RAM, data from <30>H to <39>H is sent to
the printer and printed (the printout is only 80 columns
wide).
Table 4. Self-test mode
Note
It takes some time to check the RAM before test printing
beings.

low by changing a DIP switch,
jumper, or SelecType setting on
the printer.) The printer
monitors this signal, so this

the printer’s specifications.
Note
• The column heading Direction refers to the direction
of signal flow as viewed from the printer.
• All interface conditions are based on TTL level. Both
the rise and fall of each signal must be less than 0.2

INSTALLATION
Installation or removal of the C82310* interface card is
easy, and requires only a screwdriver.
The following section tells you how to install your
interface card in a variety of EPSON printers.
Caution
• Turn off the power to the printer and the computer
before installing. Make sure that all power and
interface cables are removed.
• Avoid touching the printer’s circuit board contacts;
many components are sensitive to static electric
charges that may build up on your body.
1.
Adjust DIP-switch and jumper settings as necessary.
2.
Align both sides of this card with the guides on the
sides of the interface compartment.
15
3.
Insert firmly until the interface pins mate with
connector inside your printer.
4.
Attach the two screws to secure the interface.
