The EBOX-Z Print Server
IPDS Print Server for Zebra and Eltron Printers

Turn Your Zebra and Eltron Label Printers into Full Function iSeries / zSeries IPDS Matrix Printers


PLEASE NOTE:
 The EBOX-Z is a discontinued product.  The alternative to an EBOX-Z connected to a Zebra Label Printer is the Printronix T8000 Thermal Label Printer with native Ethernet/IPDS. Please click here for additional information and pricing for the T8000 Thermal Label Printer.

Overview

The EBox (Zebra) from CSP GmbH allows a Zebra bar code label printer to be seen as an IBM AFP/IPDS printer over a TCP/IP Ethernet LAN. This allows for a hassle-free replacement of IPDS matrix, line and laser printers with an on-demand label printer from Zebra technologies.

The IBM Ethernet connection to the AS/400 or iSeries host provides the same full error reporting and printing control as a Twinax printer.

The EBox accepts standard IPDS commands from the IBM Host over a TCP/IP Ethernet LAN and converts them into ZPL II, which is sent to the attached parallel printer. Administrators or programmers do not need to learn a new programming language (ZPL), nor is it necessary to modify the bar code generating IPDS application software/drivers.

The EBox was specifically designed to work with 203 dpi printers. This cuts down on the overall cost of the printing solution while preserving the compatibility with existing applications targeted at 300 dpi printers. A particular benefit is the EBox’s support of two-dimensional bar code symbologies such as Maxicode, Data Matrix, and PDF 417.
