This table is used to record details about specific POS devices such as printers and cashdrawers. The escape sequences are the sequences used to invoke certain commands. Each escape sequence is a \ followed by a three digit number being the decimal ASCII value of the character. For example ESC A would be represented as \027\065. It could also be set as \027A.
