    Introduction Your C82362*, C82363*, or C82364* EPSON Type B Ethernet Interface Card lets you connect your EPSON printer directly to your network. The Ethernet card supports IEEE 802.2, IEEE 802.3, Ethernet II, and Ethernet SNAP network frame types, and automatically selects the correct interface when it connects to the network.

  • Page 10: Introduction

    For the C82364* Ethernet card, only use the model EU-30 AC adapter. Note: You need a network connection for your Ethernet card and an EPSON printer. For the C82362* card, use a 10Base2 cable with the included coaxial Y connector (and terminator, if necessary) or 10BaseT cable with an RJ-45 connector.
