The I-O 4260 LaserCard' quickly turns Hewlett-Packard LaserJet 4000, 5000 and 8000 series printers into powerful twinax or coax printers. The I-O 4260 LaserCard' is easily installed into one of the printer's EIO slots and is conveniently configured through the printer's operator panel. The I-O 4260 offers the following features:

  • Seamlessly connects to IBM AS/400, S/3X, or 3270-type mainframe hosts or 5x94, 3174, 3274, and 3276 remote controllers.
  • Fully supports the printer's intelligent auto-sharing capabilities between LANs and PCs attached through an additional LAN card or attached to the printer's parallel or serial port.
  • Comes with the industry's best 3287/68/62 and 3812-1 (SCS) printer emulations for worry-free host printing.
  • Supports multiple fonts, duplex printing (twinax only), Automatic Print Orientation, Computer Output Reduction, host selectable paper drawers, and other features.
  • Generates industry-compliant bar codes when simple commands are sent from the IBM host.
  • Increases flexibility by providing twinax and coax connectivity on one board. (Operating mode is automatically determined through the attached host adapter.)
  • Provides lightning fast protocol conversion through a high performance PowerPC RISC processor allowing printers to operate at their rated speed.
