Epson Stylus 740 and the 390

Application :Epson Stylus 740
Vendor :Epson
Platform :Parallel Printer
Version :NA
Cabling :SE130-SERPAR (RJ45 to Centronics cable)
Notes :This Epson printer is a PARALLEL device! A serial to parallel converter must be used! The above cable satisfies this requirement. Note that the "SERPAR" converter operates at a fixed baud rate of 9,600!

The 391 requires Epson "ESC/P2" printer language. In newer 391's this option is accessed by using the "CANON2" I/O preset. If your 391 has the "CANON2" I/O preset, select it now. Older 391's will not have a "CANON2" preset. For these units use the "EPSON" I/O preset. In this last case, the graphs may slightly exceed the size of an 8.5 x 11 inch sheet. If this is not acceptable contact X-Rite Customer Service to secure a firmware upgrade.
