I-O 5430B & 5431B  
iSeries/zSeries IP Print Servers for Barcode Printers

Seamless iSeries AS/400 & zSeries Mainframe
Label Printing with Barcode Printer Print Server

PLEASE NOTE:  The I-O Corporation 5430b, 5430e, 5431b, 5450e, 5730e and 5750e iSeries/zSeries SCS Print Servers and Print Server Gateways are no longer manufactured.   The direct replacement for the 5430b/5431b models is the 3rd generation Win10 SCS iSeries/zSeries SCS Print Server Gateway.  Please click here to be taken to the Win10 SCS Print Server Gateway page.


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 host systems. 

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 Thermal Bar Code Interface.


    Connects one parallel printer (I-O 5430b) or one serial printer (I-O 5431b)

    Support of most proprietary Bar Code / Label printer languages

    10 / 100 Mbps Ethernet LAN, auto sensing

    Multiple Host support (iSeries AS/400, Mainframe zSeries, Windows, Unix)

    Multiple LAN protocols - TCP/IP (PPR/PPD, TN5250e, LPR/LPD), SNA (APPC), AnyNet (SNA over TPC/IP)

    Host printing via Telnet (TN5250e and TN3270E), SNA (APPC) or AnyNet

    Simple, one step set-up (auto configuration) when using TN5250e or TN3270e

    Host controlled printing, including error reporting, page range printing etc.

    I-O's award winning IBM printer emulations

    EBCDIC to ASCII conversion done by the 5430b/5431b , frees host resources and increases print speeds

AS/400 printing over Ethernet

Allows AS/400 print jobs to be seamlessly printed over a LAN.

Enhanced Telnet 5250 (TN5250e)

Communicate with up to ten AS/400's using native TCP/IP.

Printer error reporting to the AS/400

Prevents loss of AS/400 print data by providing the same level of print status reporting as a 5250 Twinax printer.

Page range printing from the AS/400

Permits users to print select page ranges from large documents and reports.

Auto configuration (One step setup)

Installs in minutes using native TCP/IP, avoiding complex software configurations.

Offloading of Data Conversion

Eliminates unnecessary AS/400 or PC overhead by converting EBCDIC data directly on the I-O 5430B/5431B. Host Print Transform is no longer required.

True IBM printer emulations

Permits full-function AS/400 printing on the attached LAN printer.

Simultaneous, multi-host printing

Maximizes printer utilization by supporting concurrent printing not only from multiple AS/400's but from Novell, Windows NT, Windows 95, OS/2, UNIX, etc.

10BaseT and 100BaseT

Protects print server investment when upgrading the LAN to 100 Mbps.

Powerful RISC processor

Takes advantage of the LAN printer's maximum print speed even when processing AS/400 jobs.

Unique support of proprietary bar code label printer languages

Print self-tests, diagnostics, dumps, etc., directly to any attached label printer for convenient customization and trouble-shooting.
