Epson EX-1000, EX-800 User Manual

The serial interface

The serial interface
For the serial interface, you should use an Epson serial interface
cable. Use #8239 for the Apple
 IIc, #8297 for the IBM* PC and
compatibles, and #8293 for most other computers with a DB-25 socket,
including the Apple IIe with serial interface. (Although you can use the
serial interface with an IBM or compatible computer, it is usually best to
connect your EX to the parallel port of an IBM or compatible computer.)
The serial interface also requires the setting of four DIP switches. See
the section on serial interfaces in Appendix C for information on how to
set them.
10 Setting the DIP Switches
The EX has sixteen switches that allow you to change many of the
printer’s settings to suit your individual needs. These switches, known
as DIP (Dual In-line Package) switches, are in the back of the printer
See Figure 1-12 below.
