The Epson LQ-570 and LQ-1070 dot matrix printer were introduced in August 1991 as an addition to the 24 pin range. They supported the new ESC/P2 command language which offers scalable fonts and enhanced graphics. The printers also have versatile paper handling allowing the user to select one of 4 paper paths. The printers have two sets of DIP (Dual In-line Package) switches located on the front panel. These switches control certain printer functions and default settings, the details of which are listed below.
The following table shows the international character sets that can be selected with these DIP switches when DIP switch SW1-4 is off.
