Part Number: 4465TX
Price: $730


I-O 4465TX AFP/IPDS Printer Server

IO 4465TX Twinax AFP/IPDS print server

The I-O 4465TX turns virtually any PCL 5e printer into a feature-rich IPDS Twinax printer in an IBM AS/400, iSeries or eServer i5 environment.

The I-O 4465TX turns virtually any PCL 5e or later compatible laser or ink jet printer into an economical, feature-rich IPDS AS/400, iSeries or eServer i5 printer. It attaches to the printer’s parallel port and provides a twinax connection to the IBM AS/400, iSeries or eServer i5 system. The I-O 4465TX is conveniently configured through on-board DIP switches and Host/PC download commands.

The I-O 4465TX can be operated in IBM 4028 or 3812/16 emulation mode and supports all IPDS towers including Presentation Text, IO Image, IM Image, Graphics, Bar Codes, Page Segments, Overlays, Loaded Fonts, and Device Control.

Equipped with an additional parallel input port, the I-O 4465TX allows the attached printer to be shared automatically between the IBM AS/400, iSeries or eServer i5 and a PC or LAN, thus doubling the capacity of the printer.

In addition, five LEDs on top of the I-O 4465TX aid in troubleshooting and provide quick problem resolution and diagnostics.
