5794ip Twinax Controller
Support up to 14 Twinax Devices Over an IP Connection

Connects Twinax Displays & Printers
to the IBM Power9, Power8, Power7, i5, & iSeries AS/40
via any Ethernet ConnectionOverview

:   The Xip and Xip Plus have been discontinued
and is no longer available.  Please click here to be taken to the eTwinax Controller page for Twinax-Over-IP connectivity to IBM Power10/9/8 and all iSeries AS400s.  Click here if you are not transferred to that page within a few seconds.


The I-O 5794ip Twinax Controller connects IBM and IBM compatible Twinax display stations and printers to an AS400-iSeries host via TCP/IP over an Ethernet LAN. The I-O 5794ip is ideal for those who are migrating their AS/400-iSeries to an Ethernet environment.


  • Reliable Twinax displays and IPDS/SCS printers can operate in an Ethernet

  • Eliminates the need for expensive IBM Twinax Work Station Controllers

  • In locations requiring remote access, the I-O 5794ip replaces expensive remote

  • No need for high-priced leased lines or expensive DSU/CSU modems

  • No re-cabling – continue to utilize existing Twinax or twisted pair cabling

  • Supports up to 56 logical sessions (4 sessions per device)

  • Supports up to 4 AS/400-iSeries hosts

  • Supports TN5250e, SNA and AnyNet

  • Easy to install

Additional Features

Features Benefits
Investment Protection When installing an Ethernet LAN that is attached to an AS/400–iSeries, reliable Twinax displays and IPDS/SCS printers can operate in the new Ethernet environment maintaining the usefulness of the equipment
Eliminates the Need for Twinax Work Station Controller A significant saving is realized by installing an I-O 5794ip Twinax Controller instead of an expensive IBM Twinax Work Station Controller
No IBM Remote Controller Required When remote access to an AS/400–iSeries is required, an expensive IBM or IBM compatible remote controller is replaced by an economical I–O 5794ip Controller
No Leased Lines or Expensive Modems When communicating to a remote site, there is no need to spend valuable resources on high-priced leased lines and special modems.
No Re-cabling The I-O 5794ip allows Twinax displays and printers to be connected to existing Twinax or twisted pair cabling eliminating the expense of re-cabling
Multiple Protocols Supports the auto configuring TN5250e and AnyNet for remote locations or SNA for a local attachment
Multiple Host Supports up to 4 hosts
Multiple Sessions Up to 4 sessions per physical device can be configured – Up to 56 logical sessions supported
