iSeries AS/400 &
Label Printing with Barcode Printer Print
The I-O 5430b and 5431b Bar Code Print Servers are
single-port, multi-protocol print servers designed to provide support for specialty
printers, such as Zebra, Eltron, Genicom, Monarch, Sato, Datamax, Intermec
as well as other bar code and specialty printers bar code label printers
over Ethernet networks from IBM Power Systems, iSeries
AS/400 and zSeries S/390
The 5430b & 5431b connect
Barcode printers to your IBM Host over IP and configures them
as true "Devices" with normal Out
Queues, and not problematic Remote Out Queue printers. This gives you optimal control of file
spooling printer status (page range, out of paper, offline etc.).
The 5430b & 5431b connects
Barcode printers with the same reliable, full
function printing support as a direct Twinax-attached 5250 printer
or Coax-attached 3270 printer.
If you need direct attachment as Twinax or Coax printers, click here for the I-O 4440 Twinax / Coax
