I-O PrintBox Serial


I-O TXS+ Twinax to Serial Interface
Fully refurbished with 90-day warranty

The I-O Print Box TxS/CxS plus is the most reliable and hassle-free external connectivity solution for serially attached ASCII printers. It is specifically targeted at connecting specialty printers (such as bar code label printers) to IBM host systems. The I-O Print Box TxS/CxS plus offers these features:
  • Attaches virtually any PC printer with an RS-232 serial port to an IBM AS/400, System/3X, or 3270-type mainframe host, or to a controller.
  • Setup is quick and easy via the mouse-supported PC setup software, through Host/PC download commands, and on-board DIP switches.
  • Comes with drivers for a wide variety of popular ASCII printers including Hewlett-Packard PCL-type laser, Epson, and IBM dot-matrix printers, and a generic driver for use with specialty printers such as bar code label printers.
  • Replaces and is 100% compatible with I-O's popular 8215 External Printer Interface.
  • Comes with built-in intelligent printer sharing capabilities, allowing the attached printer to be automatically shared between twinax/coax and PC, LAN or RS/6000 users through the RS-232 port, at no extra cost.
