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.

  • Page 11: Setting The Jumpers

    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.

  • Page 16: Making Additional Settings

    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.

  • Page 17: User-defined Command-pass-thru Strings

    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.

  • Page 18: Interface Setup Commands

    could For example, you 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.
