I-O 9310 LaserCard


I-O 9310 LaserCard

The I-O 9310 Internal Printer Interface Card allows EPSON printers, including the DFX-5000, with a slot for optional interface cards (#8143/8148) to be attached to an IBM 3270 mainframe host.

The I-O 9310 offers a wide range of IBM printer emulations, including 3287, 3262, 3268, 4214-1, and 4224 (all SCS). When installed in an EPSON DFX 5000 or 8000 printer, the I-O9310 can replace traditional 3287 printing by providing true IBM emulations and compatibility at a fraction of the IBM cost.

Installation and setup are simple via Host/PC download commands, or push-button configuration with user-definable selections (including IBM RPQs) that can be stored in the interface's memory. The I-O Command Pass-Thru feature allows complete access to all user-programmable printer options. The printer sharing port on the interface card is auto-switching, offering intelligent Host/PC printer sharing and maximum printing flexibility.

IBM compatible printing, PLUS additional features provide significant cost savings over traditional coax printing.
