Chapter 1: The 7156 Printer

7156 Setup and User’s Guide

September 1998


The industry-standard RS-232C communication interface allows the 7156 to be
connected to any host computer that uses RS-232C. Control codes are provided for
easy migration of applications written for Epson as well as other NCR printers.

With thermal printing technology on the more frequently used receipt station,
there is no ribbon cassette to change and paper loading is extremely simple.
Printing on single- or multiple-part forms, validating checks, and printing checks
is also easy in the accommodating slip station. An additional option is the
Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) check reader with parsing which
reads account numbers on checks for easy verification. An extended slip table is
available for handling large forms and is standard with the MICR check reader
