Ithaca Series 50 Impact Printer

Series 50 Printer Main Board Function Switch Settings

Okidata Emulation
CHECK AND SET SWITCHES
The factory switch settings apply to most customer applications and normally do not need to be reset; however, the switch settings should be checked and set at this time, if necessary.

CONTROL BOARD
All Series 50 printers contain one large circuit board called the control board. Located on that board is one DIP switch pack containing 8 switches (called DIP SW on the circuit board).

DEFAULT SETTINGS
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
ON OFF OFF OFF ON OFF ON OFF

SWITCHES 1,2 & 3
When this unit is shipped from the factory, the switches are set so that the unit prints US ASCII characters and the numeric 0 without a slash through it. The following shows the available languages and switch settings.

SELECTION SWITCH 1 SWITCH 2 SWITCH 3
ASCII (slashed zero) OFF OFF OFF
ASCII (no slashed zero) ON OFF OFF
British OFF ON OFF
German ON ON OFF
French OFF OFF ON
French Canadian OFF ON ON
Spanish ON ON ON

SWITCH 4
Switch 4 is used to select the control code needed to energize the cash drawer. When switch 4 is OFF the cash drawer is opened by the "BEL" (HEX 07) command. When switch 4 is ON the cash drawer is opened by the "ESC +" (HEX 1B 2B) command.

SWITCH 5
Switch 5 is used to select the codes used for printer select/deselect sequences.

SWITCH 6
Switch 6 is the automatic line feed selection and is set OFF at the factory for no line feed. If some data is overprinted, it is possible that the computer did not send a line feed command at the end of the print line. Set this switch to ON and the printer will insert a line feed at the end of each line. On computers which send a line feed command setting switch 6 ON causes double line spacing.

SWITCH 7
Switch 7 selects the number of data bits. ON selects 8 data bits, OFF selects 7 data bits.

SWITCH 8
Switch 8 is used only by the factory and must remain in the OFF position.



Maybe Dale will put this as a sticky.
