Technical Specifications

I-O Corporation's Adaptio TN5250e / TN3270e SCS Print Server Software is a Windows based software solution designed to print IBM host print jobs over an Ethernet network via TCP/IP. Running as a Windows service, Adaptio seamlessly converts IBM host print job data streams to PCL, Epson FX, IBM ProPrinter and selected other printer emulations that are addressed through either Port 9100 to a specific network printer IP Address or to an installed Windows printer driver for the specific printer.

Adaptio offers the flexibility, speed, and control expected by IBM users. As the requirement for host printers increases, additional printer sessions can be added. With expandability in mind, Adaptio starts by supporting 1 network attached printer, and expands to support up to 256 printers. When printing from an IBM iSeries, AS/400, zSeries or System S/390, Adaptio prints SCS print jobs at speeds up to 250 pages per minute. Adaptio provides bi-directional communications between the IBM host and the printer, preventing documents from being lost in the 'black hole' of network printing. In addition page range printing is supported.

Adaptio Enhanced SCS is an Adaptio product that transforms IBM's plain text SCS data stream into a graphical presentation. Pre-formatted documents such as electronic forms, invoices, statements and checks are stored as templates. Enhanced SCS monitors the incoming SCS data stream, selects the correct template and then populates the form with variable data. As an economical optional feature, Enhanced SCS eliminates the expense of pre-printed forms, PSF, IPDS, and custom programming.
