Agile Ultra II


The ULTRA II is the next generation of 3270 printer connectivity, combining all the power and speed of AGILE's protocol converters with XES to PCL translation, all in one box.

This unit attaches to any IBM mainframe with a 3174, 3274 or 3276 controller via an RG62 A/U coax input port, and supports printer with an IEEE 1284C-compliant parallel interface.

Using its seamless XES to PCL translation option, which AGILE pioneered, the ULTRA II lets you migrate to new PCL printers without having to change anything in your existing XES data streams. Emulation of Xerox diagnostics is also provided for reliable troubleshooting, should you need it.

The ULTRA II features 512K FLASH memory for storage of resources, such as fonts in both portrait and landscape modes.

Configuration of the ULTRA II is easily handled through parallel input port. The simple, one-button front panel allows you to select from 15 operation modes.

You can also replace other AGILE products, such as the Ultra, Ally and Ally Plus models, with the ULTRA II, without having to reconfigure your data streams.
