PR088Plus - AFP-IPDS
AFP-IPDS External Interface
Compact, designed for direct attachment to IBM Midrange Systems AS/400, allows any PCL5 laser printer, including HP, Xerox, Lexmark, QMS, NEC, Kyocera Dataproducts, Genicom, Okidata, Tally, and many more, to print IPDS data streams with high performance and excellent printing quality.
High throughput, up to 37 pages per minute for high-volume document printing, and up to five addressable input trays for media flexibility. Two-up, four-up and duplex printing increase printer throughput and reduce paper cost by printing multiple logical pages on both sides of a page. Handles different input media paper sources, cut sheet ranging from B5 all the way up to Ledger size, continuous forms, and Labels.
Auto port sensing for simultaneous printing from Host or PC connection makes the product an excellent choice for work groups. IPDS refresh feature ensures accurate IPDS printout on printers which handle multiple data streams.
The wide variety of resident fonts can be used to create professional-looking, and easy-to-read documents in more than fourteen languages.
Sixteen different bar codes, including POSTNET and Code 128 allow quick and accurate data entry when used for business process automation.
Exception reporting and recovery of downloaded resources ensures accurate and complete printing. Four megabyte memory allows resource retention for as long as possible reducing host workload due to repeated downloading.
Supports the IBM AFP family of printers, including impact and laser technology, with innovative, functionality features that make the product ideal for Advanced Function Printing environment.
Supports IBM AFP printers 4028-AS1, 3912-AS1, and 3812-2.
