I-O 9320 LaserCard


I-O 9320 LaserCard

The I-O 9320 Internal Coax Printer Interface Card allows EPSON printers, including the DFX-5000+, with a slot for optional interface cards (C82305/ C82306) to be attached to an IBM 3270 mainframe host.

The I-O 9320 offers a wide range of IBM printer emulations, including 3287, 3262, 3268, 4214-1, and 4224, or 3812-1 (non-IPDS). When using an EPSON laser printer with data or word processing applications, Computer Output Reduction (COR) and Automatic Page Orientation (APO) can be used to print reports on letter size paper.

The I-O Command Pass-Thru feature allows complete access to all user-programmable printer features. The printer sharing port on the interface is auto-switching offering intelligent Host/PC printer sharing. Support for both LU3 and LU1 modes is also available providing maximum printing flexibility.

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