I have a Diconix 180si, with User Manual and Technical Reference manual.

The 180si does not use DIP switches, so I can't help with that. The Tech Ref manual does have Command Code and Character Set info, however. The whole manual is a bit over 100 pages. I can scan it if you are interested.

The 180si uses one also. It "catches a spray of ink which the printer uses to clear the printhead cartridge before printing." A new pad is included in each printhead cartridge container.
