Printer Interfaces
Epson TM Series



The majority of the Epson range of printers are equiped with modular interface connector's. This allows the interface card that is installed to be easily removed, and replaced, with another different type of interface. Therefore a printer that was originally set up as a serial printer to be converted to parallel, high speed serial, RS-485, USB, Ethernet or Wireless very easily, and without the expense of replacing the entire main board of the printer.

Below are the specifications for all of the interfaces currently available for the Epson range of printers:
