If you have a choice between the 5224 and 4214 emulations, you should select
4214. The 4214 emulation adds control of the following features: lines per inch,
pitch, graphics, print quality, and single-sheet handling.
If your printer supports Epson Job Language (EJL) commands, do not change the
printer mode using the EJL commands or the command-pass-thru feature while
the interface is installed. Also you may not be able to change the printer mode
using the control panel.
Never select the PostScript™ printer mode while this interface is installed.
PREPARING TO INSTALL THE INTERFACE CARD
Before installing this interface card you may need to set several jumpers,
depending on the following factors:
The type of Epson printer you are using
The type of IBM printer you want the interface to emulate
The type of twin-axial connector your host system uses
3
Also, because this interface can be damaged by static electricity, you should
prepare the interface card for installation according to the procedure below:
1. While the interface is still in its anti-static bag, place it next to your printer.
2. Place the twin-axial cable from the host computer on top of the anti-static bag;
make sure the metal connector on the cable is in contact with the bag.
3. Remove the interface card from the bag and place it on top of the bag next to
the twin-axial cable.
4. Set the jumpers on the interface card according to the instructions in the
following section.
SETTING THE JUMPERS
A jumper is a small, square plastic object that fits over two terminals (prongs) on
the interface card. To connect a jumper, place the jumper over both terminals. To
disconnect a jumper, place it over one terminal only. All jumpers are connected
when shipped from the factory.
The C82315* interface card has three jumpers, labeled as J2, J5, and J6. The
settings for J5 and J6 are different for the different emulations. After deciding on
an emulation, set the jumpers according to the tables below.

INSTALLING THE INTERFACE CARD
After making any necessary changes in the jumper settings, you should install the
C82315* Twinax Interface Card in your printer.
Instructions on installing this interface card are included in your printer’s user’s
guide. Follow these steps carefully.
SETTING THE SWITCHES
The C82315* Twinax Interface Card comes with eight switches that are used to
determine many of the default settings of the interface card. Details on these
settings are listed in the following section.
You can set the switches located on the rear side of the card at any time.
However, the interface only checks these settings when the printer is first turned
on. Always turn the printer off and then back on again after changing a setting.
5
Change the switch settings with a pointed object, such as a ball-point pen. A
switch is on when in the upper position (if the interface is Installed horizontally) or
in the right position (if the interface is installed vertically), as shown below.

PERFORMING A SELF TEST
To verify the interface is installed and the settings are correct, perform an interface
self test according to the following steps.
1. Turn on the printer and load paper. Make sure the cable address (set with
switches 1, 2, and 3) is not set to 7.
2. Press the TEST button on the interface. The printer then prints out a list of the
jumper, switch, and feature settings, similar to the self test sample printout shown
in Appendix A-l.
The name of the printer printed in the self test may differ from your
printer’s actual model name.
3. Turn the printer off to end the self test.
If the warning message is printed, it indicates the interface’s emulation mode
differs from the emulation mode selected by your printer.
CONNECTING TO THE HOST COMPUTER SYSTEM
After you confirm the interface is installed and settings are correct, you can
connect it to the host system according to the following steps.
8
1. Connect the twin-axial connectors of the twin-axial V connector to your host
computer system cable.
2. Insert the twin-axial V serial cable into the 9 pin twin-axial serial connector on
the interface.
3. Tighten the thumbscrews on both sides of the twin-axial serial cable connector
to secure it to the interface.
MAKING ADDITIONAL SETTINGS
In addition to setting the switches and jumpers described in Setting Up, you can
make interface or printer settings with the C82315* interface in four more ways:
command-pass-thru, interface setup commands, display station setup mode, and
memory setup mode.
COMMAND-PASS-THRU
This feature allows you to insert commands within your print files that are sent
directly to the printer, without being processed first by the interface. You can then
take advantage of the advanced features of Epson printers (such as color printing
and super/subscripts) that are not supported in IBM printers.
Follow the steps below to send command-pass-thru commands.
1. Convert the Epson printer commands you wish to send into two-digit
hexadecimal codes. See your Epson printer’s user’s guide for a list of all
commands; the hexadecimal values of each command are shown there.
2. Inside the document you are sending to the printer, insert the following
characters:
&%
When the interface receives these two characters, it knows that the characters
following are commands in hexadecimal format. (These are the default characters:
you can define different characters with interface setup command 06 described
in Interface Setup Commands.)
3.
Immediately following the &% characters, insert your commands in
hexadecimal format; the interface recognizes characters from 00 to FF only
(alphabet characters must be upper case).
9
You may insert one or several commands, as long as they are all in hexadecimal
format, and they are commands that are used by your printer in its current mode.
You may also insert spaces between hexadecimal pairs to increase visual clarity;
however, do not put any’spaces after the first &% characters or before the last
&% characters.
4. After you have inserted all your commands, insert the &% characters again.
This tells the interface that command-pass-thru Is finished and the data following
is normal print data.
Note:
Although these characters are displayed in your document on the display
screen, the interface treats them as commands and does not print them.
If part of the sequence is printed, you have made an error in entering the
codes; check your document and make sure you are using the correct
format and hexadecimal characters.
Avoid sending codes that would move the print position during
command-pass-thru. Since the interface does not process these
commands, it cannot keep track of the print position changes; this may
affect the position of following characters and page layout.
You can also send these commands by typing them on the screen and
pressing the screen print key.
Example:
To print the word ‘scalable” in the following sentence in bold using
Epson ESC/P commands, you could use command-pass-thru as follows
(the bold on/bold off commands are ESC E and ESC F):
Epson ESC/P 2 offers advanced &% 1B 45&%scalable&%1B46&% fonts
for laser-like printing at dot-matrix prices.
USER-DEFINED COMMAND-PASS-THRU STRINGS
You can define up to eight of your own custom command-pass-thru command
strings (0 to 7) to be stored in interface memory. The method of defining strings
is described in the following section.
Once you have defined these strings, you send them in the following format:
&%U1
The U1 tells the interface to send user-defined string number 1 to the printer.
10
For example, you could define user-defined string 1 to be the command string to
turn on bold printing, as used in the example in the previous section. Then,
instead of inserting the &% 1B 45&% command in your text, you would insert only
&%U1.
INTERFACE SETUP COMMANDS
You send these commands in a similar manner to command-pass-thru, but the
commands are used to make interface settings instead of being sent on to the
printer. These interface settings control printing regardless of the printer model
connected.
The format of the interface setup commands is as follows:
&%Z##,P
The 8%Z indicates that an interface setup command follows. The ## is a two-digit
number, indicating the number of the command. The P is the parameter of the
command: the length of the parameter varies by command.
A table of commands and parameters, as well as a short description of each
follows.

DISPLAY STATION SETUP MODE
When the printer is connected to a twin-axial cable that is also connected to a
display station, you can display an interface setup screen showing various setup
parameters. You can then change these parameters and save them in the
interface memory.
See Appendix A-2 for an example of the setup screen.
Follow the steps below to change settings in display station setup mode.
1.
Turn off the printer and all devices connected to the same twin-axial cable.
2.
Disconnect the twin-axial cable from the IBM host computer, and make sure
that at least one display station is connected to the cable and is turned on.
Turn off switch 8 to deactivate the twinax interface. Then make sure you
3.
have set a valid address other than 7 (switches 1,2,3), and turn on the printer.
4.
Press the TEST button on the interface. The interface setup screen appears
on the display station.
5.
Use the cursor keys to move to settings you want to change. Use the
backspace to delete old settings, then type in the new settings.
14
When you finish changing settings, press the Enter key to save the new
6.
settings in the interface memory.
Turn off the printer and return switch 8 to the on position to resume using
7.
the twinax interface.
MEMORY SETUP MODE
You can have the printer print out various interface settings one at a time and then
change them by responding to printed questions using the YES and NO buttons
on the interface.
Follow the steps below to change settings using memory setup mode.
1. Enter memory setup mode by holding down both the YES and NO buttons
while turning on the printer. The printer then prints out the first setting and asks
the following:
Do you want this changed? (Yes/No)
2. If you then press YES, the interface changes thesetting to the next available
parameter. It then prints out the new setting and asks again if you want to change
the setting. The printer repeats the question for all the parameters until you press
NO, indicating you do not want to change the current setting.
If you answer NO the first time, the printer goes on to the next setting.
3. Continue to answer the questions and make desired setting changes until the
following question is printed:
Do you wish to save current selections? (Yes/No)
4. Press YES to save the settings you have just made. Press NO to return to the
old settings and exit memory setup mode.
Note:
You may need to use the line feed button on the printer’s control panel
to advance the paper so you can see the printed messages.
This method of making settings is not recommended for laser printers;
to see the questions, you would have to eject one page every time a
question is printed.

PRINTER SHARING
If the C82315* is connected to a PC with the Parallel Sharing Cable,
the PC must be turned on.
The C62315* Interface is equipped with two interface connectors: a serial connector for connecting the twinax V-connector and a parallel connector. By connecting
a PC to the parallel connector, you can share the printer between the PC and
Twinax systems.
When you first turn the printer on, the twinax connector is selected. If the twinax
system sends no data for a certain period, and the PC system sends data, the
interface switches to the parallel connector. (The period the interface wafts before
switching can be set with Display station Setup or Command 06 described in
Interface Setup Commands--the default is 8 seconds.)
After a print job is completed from either connector, and no additional data is
received for a certain period, the interface monitors both connectors for the next
data.
Since printing alternates between the twinax and PC systems during printer
sharing, it is recommended that you reset the printer at the beginning of each
print job. Otherwise, page layout, character spacing, and other settings remain
from the previous print job.
You can use Command 09 described in Interface Setup Commands to define a
string of up to 25 characters that are sent to the printer each time the interface
switches to the parallel connector.
The interface automatically restores settings for character pitch, lines per inch, and
page length when lt returns to twinax printing.
16
EMULATION DETAILS
The C82315* interface emulates several IBM printers. However, you should be
aware of slight differences in operation caused by mechanical and other differences between IBM and Epson printers.
The differences for each emulation are described in the following sections.
4214/5224 EMULATION
Epson printers and 4214/5224 printers have the following differences.
LINE-FEED INCREMENT
A 4214 printer advances paper in 1/120-inch increments for continuous paper, and
1/10-inch increments for single-sheet paper. 5224 printers use a 1/72-inch
increment. Epson O-pin printers advance paper in 1/216-inch increments, and
24/48 printers advance paper in 1/360-inch increments. The C82315* interface
calculates the difference in paper advancing increments and corrects for errors
as printing proceeds.
PAPER BINS
A 4214 printer can select from three paper bins; an Epson printer can select from
two. If you select bin 3, the Epson loads paper from bin 2.
GRAPHICS PRINTING
You can create graphics on the 4214 printer by sending the Load Alternate
Character (LAC) command. This is the command used by the IBM programs APF
and BGU. This command defines a pattern to be printed in place of a certain
character, similar to the Epson ESC/P user-defined character feature.
The C82315* interface accepts two variations of the LAC command: the LAC-1
and LAC-2 commands. The LAC-1 command defines a 9-dot wide by 8-dot high
pattern while the LAC-2 command defines a 10-dot wide by a 8-dot high pattern.
The C82315* interface prints graphics data using the quad-density, 240 dot per
inch graphics mode. In order to maintain the proper pitch, each character should
be defined with the following widths:
10 CPI Graphics - 24 Columns
12 CPI Graphics - 20 Columns
15 CPI Graphics - 16 Columns
17.1 CPI Graphics - 14 Columns
17
Because the interface adjusts data to fit in the number of columns available on
Epson printers, printed characters may not be perfectly symmetrical.
NOTE: When printing high-density graphics, you may not be able to print adjacent
dots. This may cause gaps when printing bar codes, so bar code printing is not
recommended.
5219 EMULATION
The font ID numbers sent to a 5219 printer select the Epson character pitches and
typefaces shown below; the ID numbers marked with a + are the recommended
settings.

3812 EMULATION
Epson printers and 3812 printers have the following differences.
PAPER TRAY OR CASSETTE
If you have an optional paper tray or cassette installed in your Epson laser printer,
you should use SelecType on your printer’s control panel to select optional for the
input setting. See your printer’s user’s guide for details on using SelecType.
COMPUTER OUTPUT REDUCTION
Epson laser printers cannot print on 13.2 x 11 inch paper, so you may need to
reduce or rotate the image to fit data processing reports onto the paper available.
The chart on the following page shows how to print data processing reports onto
smaller size paper.

19
FONT ID
The 3812 emulation uses IBM font ID’s to switch from one HP font to another.
Only certain IBM font ID's can be used as the system default. These are noted by
an asterisk (*) in the Font ID table in Appendix A-3 of this manual.
You specify the default font ID for your printer when you configure the printer on
the IBM host. Have your system operator set your default to the font ID you use
most and then change as necessary with a printer override, OCL command, or
word processing font ID. (See Appendix A-3 for font ID table.)
PAPER SIZE AND ENVELOPES
The 3812 emulation supports the following paper sizes:
Letter
Legal
A4
Executive
8.5 x 11 inches
8.5 x 14 inches
210 x 297 mm (8.27’ x 11 .69’)
7.25 x 10.5 inches
Epson printers support the following envelope sizes:
Commercial 10
Monarch
DL
CS
9.5 x 4.125 inches
7.5 x 3.875 inches
220 x 110 mm (8.66’ x 4.333
229 x 162 mm (9.02’ x 6.38”)
You must send the paper and envelope dimensions from the IBM host to the
printer in order for the proper size to be selected. You can use interface setup
commands to select A4 size paper as the default or to feed paper regardless of
size.
JUSTIFICATION
The 3812 emulation supports right hand justification for all fixed pitch fonts as well
as proportional font IDS 158, 159, and 162 (found in the 5410 font cartridge).
INTERFACE TEST MODES
In addition to the self-test described in the section on installing the interface, the
C82315* has four other tests you can perform: hex print, communications test,
interface diagnostics, and the interface diagnostic loopback.
20
HEX PRINT
During hex print, the printer prints the data received in hexadecimal format. You
can then check if the data you are sending is reaching the printer.
The printer prints this hex data on a grid corresponding to the data’s position in
the buffer. If the hex data represents a printable character, that character is printed
to the right of the hex data.
Turn switch 5 on to enter hex print mode.
See Appendix A-4 for hex print sample.
COMMUNICATIONS TEST
The C82315* can mimic a host computer and send commands to the twin-axial
cable. You can use this feature to test a second printer connected to the same
twin-axial cable.
Follow the steps below to perform the communications test.
1. Make sure that both printers are set to the same-cable address, and that the
Epson printer is turned off.
2. Make sure that the cable end attached to the second printer is set for
termination, or uses an auto-termination cable, and that the cable is not
connected to a host system.
3. Turn switch 5 on to print the buffer diagnostic test.
4. Turn on the Epson printer; then press the TEST button on the inter face.
The second printer should then print the buffer diagnostic test header, print out
any errors encountered in communications, and then print the EBCDIC character
set.
5. After completing the test, turn off the Epson printer and return switch 5 to the
off position.
INTERFACE DIAGNOSTICS
During interface diagnostics, the interface transmits data to itself and then
analyzes how that data is processed. If an error is detected, an error message is
printed on the printer. A list of error messages is listed at the end of this section.
Follow the steps below to perform interface diagnostics.
21
1. Make sure the printer is turned off.
2. Disconnect the V-connector from any twin-axial cables (but leave it connected
to the interface). Since the interface transmits data to itself during this test, leaving
it connected to the twin-axial cable could disrupt the twin-axial system.
3. Write down the positions of switches 1, 2, and 3 (you need to return them to
their initial positions after the test is completed). Then turn switches 1, 2, and 3
on. This selects cable address location 7. Address 7 is used only during interface
diagnostics and interface diagnostic loopback.
4. Turn on the printer; then press the TEST button on the interface. The printer
then performs the test and prints the following:
TEST SEQUENCE COMPLETE
The printer performs the test sequence over and over; error messages are printed
between the TEST SEQUENCE COMPLETE” messages.
5. After you are finished running the test, turn the printer off and reset switches
1, 2, and 3 to their original position.
INTERFACE DIAGNOSTICS ERROR MESSAGES
The error messages and explanations are listed below.
If an error occurs, the following tests may not be performed.
OUTPUT TIMING ERROR
The twin-axial output circuits are not responding to the microprocessor as
expected. This could be caused by a non-functioning circuit or by a termi-
nated cable not being attached to the interface.
UNEXPECTED VECTOR or IMPROPER BYTE VECTOR
The interrupt handling process received an improper interrupt value.
Possible causes are initialization problems, non-functioning circuits, or
microprocessor problems.
22
ERROR IN POLL ADDRESS X
A poll test was sent to the indicated address but was not received
properly. This could be caused by a terminated cable not being properly
installed, a circuit that is non-functioning, or intermittent connections.
INCORRECT DATA ON POLL TO ADDRESS X
A poll was sent to the indicated address and was detected as a poll;
however, the data received was not the expected data. This could be
caused by a problem with the twin-axial receiver circuitry.
NO INTERRUPT ON DATA
A byte of data (not a poll) was sent and the receiver circuitry did not
interrupt the microprocessor. This could be caused by problems in the
receiver circuitry, or problems with the microprocessor interrupts.
OUTPUT DATA AVAILABLE BIT BAD
The transmitter timing is not staying busy for the proper period. This
indicates an ASIC failure.
INPUT DATA AVAILABLE BIT BAD
The bit signaling that data was received was not set as expected. This
could be caused by not having a properly terminated cable attached, a
driver circuitry failure, a receiver circuit failure, or an ASIC failure.
NO INTERRUPT ON BAD PARITY or WRONG INTERRUPT ON BAD
PARITY
This test sends a transmission with the parity purposely invalid to test the
proper reaction. Either no interrupt or the wrong interrupt was received in
this test. This indicates an ASIC failure.
INTERRUPT W/O NMI ON POLL TO ADDRESS X
During a poll test, the transmission was received as data; not as a poll,
This indicates an ASIC failure.
23
INPUT NOT INDICATING BUSY
This is an ASIC internal test during a transmission, and indicates an ASIC
failure.
TWO BYTE DATA CHECKS BAD
This test verifies multi-byte data transmissions for proper data. A failure
could be caused by a -5-volt supply problem, a transmitter circuit failure,
a receiver circuit failure, or an ASIC failure.
OVERFLOW COUNTER BAD
This tests the protection circuit-in the ASIC designed to prevent a host
failure from over-filling the interface buffer and causing an error in operation. This message indicates an ASIC failure.
BAD DATA, EXPECTING XX RECEIVED XX
A byte of data was sent, and the receiver circuitry interrupted the
microprocessor. However, when the data was checked, it was not the
same as when it was sent. This would indicate a problem with the
twin-axial circuitry data paths.
PARITY ERROR DETECTED or PARITY FAILURE
This error indicates that the twin-axial receiver detected a parity error on
receiving polls or data. This would indicate an error in the parity generation by the twin-axial output, malfunctioning of the parity checking circuit
of the twin-axial receiver, or a poor cable connection.
INTERFACE DIAGNOSTIC LOOPBACK
Interface diagnostic loopback is essentially the same as interface diagnostics; the
only difference is that no error messages are generated. A qualified technician can
use this test to check the circuitry with an oscilloscope.
Interface diagnostic
loopback is performed in basically the same way as interface
diagnostics; however, you must turn switch 8 off before starting. Always return
switch 8 to the on position when you are finished with interface diagnostic
loopback.
