Host Print 5435e

General Info

The I-O 5435e is a single port, multi-protocol print server that provides support for Advanced Function Printing (AFP) using IBM's Intelligent Printer Data Stream (IPDS) over Ethernet networks from an IBM AS/400 - iSeries or Mainframe - zSeries Host. The I-O 5435e is a single port IPDS/SCS print server that converts native IBM AS/400 iSeries or S390 zSeries print jobs to PCL, allowing them to be printed on a laser printer.

  • Connects one PCL 5e compatible parallel laser printer
  • Supports Advanced Function Printing (AFP) using IPDS protocol
  • Also supports standard Host printing using SCS protocol
  • Supports over 100 AFP/IPDS Fonts
  • 10 / 100 Mbps Ethernet LAN, auto sensing
  • Multiple Host support (AS/400 iSeries, Mainframe zSeries, Windows, Unix)
  • Multiple LAN protocols (SNA, TCP/IP, IPX/SPX, NetBIOS)
  • Host printing via Telnet (TN5250e and TN3270E), SNA (APPC) or AnyNet
  • Simple, one step set-up (auto configuration) when using TN5250e or TN3270e
  • Host controlled printing, including error reporting, page range printing etc.
  • I-O's award winning IBM AFP/IPDS and SCS printer emulations
  • EBCDIC to ASCII conversion done by the 5435e, frees host resources and increases print speeds

Features

Benefits

AFP/IPDS printing over Ethernet

Both AFP/IPDS and standard (SCS) host print jobs can be seamlessly printed over a LAN.

Enhanced Telnet 5250 (TN5250e)and Telnet 3270 (TN3270e)

Communicates with the IBM Host using native TCP/IP.

True Print Complete

Users are notified when the print job is finished taking the guess work out of printing.

Duplex

Printing can be done on both sides of a page. The full functionality of a duplex printer can be utilized.

Page Offset Functions

Provides more flexibility in page positioning with no need to modify host applications.

Supports over 100 AFP/IPDS Fonts

There are more fonts to choose from than other AFP/IPDS interfaces.

On-board FLASH Memory

Allows for field upgrades providing the latest new features from I-O.

Printer error reporting to the host

Prevents loss of host print data by providing the same level of print status reporting as a twinax or coax printer.

Page range printing

Permits users to print select page ranges from large documents and reports.

Off-loading of Data Conversion

Eliminates unnecessary overhead by converting EBCDIC data to ASCII data directly on the I-O 5435e.

True IBM printer emulations

Permits full-function host printing on the attached LAN printer.

Simultaneous, multi-host printing

Maximizes printer utilization by supporting concurrent printing not only from the host but from Novell, Windows, OS/2, UNIX, etc.

10BaseT and 100BaseT

Provides versatility in attaching to LANs at different speeds.

Auto configuration

Installs in minutes.

Powerful RISC processor

Takes advantage of the LAN printer's maximum print speed even when processing IBM Host jobs.
