I-O 5794ip 14-device Twinax to Ethernet


The I-O 5794ip Twinax Controller connects IBM and IBM compatible Twinax display stations and printers to an AS400, iSeries or eServer i5 host via TCP/IP over an Ethernet LAN. The I-O 5794ip is ideal for those who are migrating their AS/400, iSeries or eServer i5 to an Ethernet environment.

  • Reliable Twinax displays and IPDS/SCS printers can operate in an Ethernet environment
  • Eliminates the need for expensive IBM Twinax Work Station Controllers
  • Expensive PSF/400 may not be required when using AnyNet
  • In locations requiring remote access, the I-O 5794ip replaces expensive remote controllers
  • No need for high-priced leased lines or expensive DSU/CSU modems
  • No re-cabling continue to utilize existing Twinax or twisted pair cabling
  • Supports up to 56 logical sessions (4 sessions per device)
  • Supports up to 4 AS/400, iSeries or eServer i5 hosts
  • Supports TN5250e, SNA and AnyNet

    Investment ProtectionWhen installing an Ethernet LAN that is attached to an AS/400, iSeries, or eServer i5, reliable Twinax displays and IPDS/SCS printers can operate in the new Ethernet environment maintaining the usefulness of the equipment
    Eliminates the Need for Twinax Work Station ControllerA significant saving is realized by installing an I-O 5794ip Twinax Controller instead of an expensive IBM Twinax Work Station Controller
    Expensive PSF/400 May Not be RequiredExpensive PSF/400 does not need to be installed on the host when using AnyNet and printing text and barcodes on select printers
    No Remote Controller RequiredWhen remote access to an AS/400, iSeries or eServer i5 is required, an expensive IBM or IBM compatible remote controller is replaced by an economical I-O 5794ip Controller
    No Leased Lines or Expensive ModemsWhen communicating to a remote site, there is no need to spend valuable resources on high-priced leased lines and special modems.
    No Re-cablingThe I-O 5794ip allows Twinax displays and printers to be connected to existing Twinax or twisted pair cabling eliminating the expense of re-cabling
    Multiple ProtocolsSupports the auto configuring TN5250e and AnyNet for remote locations or SNA for a local attachment
    Multiple HostSupports up to 4 hosts
    Multiple SessionsUp to 4 sessions per physical device can be configured Up to 56 logical sessions supported
