I-O 8220 Test TextOverview

The I-O 8220 LaserCard™ turns Hewlett-Packard LaserJet 5Si, 4 plus, 4Si, 4V, and other MIO-compatible printers into feature-rich Twinax printers. The I-O 8220 LaserCard™ is conveniently configured through the printer’s front panel or Host/PC download commands. It installs internally into the printer’s MIO slot and offers the following features:

  • Seamless connectivity to IBM AS/400 or S/3X hosts,
    or 5X94 remote controllers.

  •  Includes built-in intelligent printer sharing port, allowing
     the HP printer to be automatically shared between Twinax
    and PC/LAN users at no extra cost.

  • Comes with the industry’s best 3812-1 (SCS) printer emulation for worry-free host printing.  Supports multiple fonts, duplex printing, Automatic Print Orientation (APO), Computer Output Reduction (COR), host selectable paper trays, printing on 11x17 and A3 sized paper, and many other features. 

  • Generates bar codes, charts, and electronic forms through simple IOGL™ (I-O Graphics LanguageTM) commands from the host.

  • Allows color printing directly from the host when installed in the HP Color LaserJet or DeskJet 1600C.
