Host Print 5735e

General Info

The I-O 5735eIPDS/SCS Printer Gateway is a high speed Ethernet-in, Ethernet-out AFP/IPDS - SCS gateway print server designed to convert native IBM host print jobs to PCL, allowing them to be printed by a laser printer on the LAN. Supporting one printer, the 5735e delivers IBM AFP/IPDS and SCS printing via TCP/IP, providing the control and printer feedback found in an IBM host environment. 

  • Connects one PCL 5e compatible ethernet capable laser printer
  • Supports Advanced Function Printing (AFP) using IPDS protocol
  • Also supports standard Host printing using SCS protocol
  • High speed printing - over 100 pages per minute
  • Supports over 100 AFP/IPDS Fonts
  • 10 / 100 Mbps Ethernet LAN, auto sensing
  • Multiple Host support (AS/400, iSeries, eServer i5, S/390  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
  • Increases print speeds
  • Easy to install and use, includes I-O's PrintControl utility software

Features

Benefits

High Speed Printing, 100+ ppm

The I-O 5735e takes advantage of high-speed, high-performance printers without the bottleneck of the parallel port.

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 5735e.

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.
