Instructions on how to use the Z88 Serial & Parallel Printer cables(pdf format)

22 November 2010
Modern printers can be used
(dot matrix and laser) with the Z88. Check the Printer specifications.

Connectivity Interfaces
(IEEE 1284 parallel interface or Parallel Centronics, or Serial)

Printer Control Language Emulations
(Epson FX80 or FX (ESC/P) or ESC/P2)

For further information on ESC/P see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ESC/P

You cannot use Hi-Speed USB (2.0 compatible) or Windows only printers in this configuration. See the separate "Windows only Printers" section for further details.

AcuLaser M2300D

£139

Epson LX-300+II

£205

These printers use LQ ESC/P2, IBM-2390 Plus emulations which are the same as ESCP codes.

The Parallel Printer Cable allows the Z88's serial port to use a Parallel Printer.

If your printer has a serial port, then you may be able to use the Serial Printer Cable.

If you want to use a different manufacturer that has a serial or parallel connection, look up what Printer Description Languages the printer supports. If any of them are listed in Notes on Printing, you should be able to use that printer.

ERROR in the instructions for PRINTING FROM BBC BASIC. Lines 20 and 50 should read

20 PRINT#ch,CHR$ (5)+"("
50 PRINT#ch,CHR$ (5)+")"

Picture of the Canon BJC 50 Printer.

In July 2000, these printers for example, the Canon BJC 50 (above £275) and the BJC 85 (below £230) both emulate Canon Ex Mode.

Prices correct July 2000.

 

They needed a Z88 Parallel Printer Cable and BJC Driver to get them working with the Z88.

If you already have the link from the Z88 to your PC and a printer connected to your PC, you can print from your Z88 now.

Download this program, set it to 9600 baud on the Palmtop port together with which COM port your Z88 is plugged into and print away.
