Description

ANSI conformance levels represent an agreement between the sender and receiver for compatible data exchange. The control function:

  1. Acts as an announcer for the data exchange that follows between the terminal and application software.
  2. Selects which character sets the terminal uses by default in the data exchange.

The VT510 supports three ANSI conformance levels.

ANSI Levels 1 and 2

ANSI Level 3
