I-O PrintBox RPC
Reverse Protocol Converter - Convert Twinax/Coax to Parallel

I-O 8220 Test TextThe I-O Print Box RPC protects your investment in IBM system printers when migrating to LAN, UNIX, or other ASCII environments.

Overview

The reverse protocol converter interfaces between the attached Twinax or coax IBM (or compatible) system printer and a LAN, RISC/6000, or other ASCII-based host system.

The I-O Print Box RPC supports Epson FX or IBM Proprinter data streams at over 1,500 lines per minute (LPM). The integrated LCD front panel allows user-friendly customization, as well as status monitoring. The I-O Print Box RPC also offers a unique diagnostics port for quick problem resolution and configuration review using the additional ASCII printer port.

Introduce your system printer to the I-O Print Box RPC. Together, they can handle heavy-duty print jobs at a fraction of the cost of a new printer.
