    • Up to 344 IPM Duplex
    Note:(1) 2-up, side-by-side 8.5 x 11-inch portrait (A4 paper throughput 162 IPM Simplex, 324 IPM Duplex)
The state-of-the-art Advanced Function Common Control Unit (AFCCU) is a standard feature on the Infoprint 3000. The AFCCU enables resolution switching between 480 and 600 dpi, giving you the ability to print your traditional IPDS production datastreams, either in duplex or simplex, at 480 dpi (double dot 240 dpi datastreams) or 600 dpi resolution (double dot 300 dpi or native 600 dpi datastreams).

The AFCCU also features:

  • Multiple-resolution support, accepting datastreams at any resolution for printing at 600 dpi printer resolution
  • 2-UP side-by-side printing selected at the touch screen
  • Support for printer-generated barcodes and outline fonts
  • Enhanced operator functionality and flexibility
  • Expanded attachment options to include FDDI (TCP/IP) and Ethernet 10/100 BaseT (TCP/IP) in addition to Token-Ring (TCP/IP), ESCON Channel, and S/370 Parallel Channel
The Infoprint 3000 is a high-speed, high-production, continuous forms, all-points-addressable simplex and duplex laser printer family that offers multiple and switchable resolution of 480, 600, or 480/600 dpi. Along with the multiple resolutions the Infoprint 3000 family also offers high-production throughput speed of up to 172 impressions-per-minute (IPM) in simplex and 344 IPM in duplex (Respective throughput speeds for A4 paper sizes are up to 162 IPM in simplex and 324 IPM in duplex). These speed are quoted as 2-up, side-by-side 8.5 x 11-inch portrait.

The IBM Infoprint 3300 ES1 and ED1/ED2 are based on the state-of-the-art Advanced Function Common Control Unit (AFCCU). The IBM Info Print 3300 ES1 and ED1/ED2 are equipped with the newest generation of the AFCCU which enables resolution switching from 480 dpi to 600 dpi and vice- versa. The AFCCU also has the capability of accepting 240 dpi, 300 dpi, or native 600 dpi datastreams, printing them in 480 or 600 dpi resolution. At 600 dpi resolution with appropriate host PSF support, the printer can accept datastreams of any resolution, including 240 dpi, 300 dpi, or native 600 dpi applications. In addition, the AFCCU enables host managed paper-jam recovery through the customer's post-processing equipment, operator function enabling flexibility, 128 MB (3300-ES1) or 256 MB (3300-ED1/ED2) of performance enabling memory.

Customers in the business of printing banking or financial statements, invoices, utility bills or other industries who send statements, bills, policies, and other forms of communications to their customers can utilize the IBM Infoprint 3000 printers to maximize the productivity of their printing operations. With the capability and flexibility of receiving either 240, 300, or 600 dpi datastreams and printing them on a single printer, customers can have the option of reducing overall printing costs by eliminating redundant printers that up to now were necessary to maintain the capability and options of printing either 240, 300, or 600 dpi datastreams in simplex or duplex.

EURO READY

The IBM Infoprint 3000 printer family contains printer resident fonts that make it capable of printing the new Euro currency symbol and code pages. It is also capable of using fonts downloaded from a host system via PSF. Although the printers are ready, the Euro fonts will be provided by IBM in the new version of the IBM AFP Font Collection in 4Q98.

IBM Printing Systems will support the Euro Currency.



Devices Supported

Two varieties of pre-and post-processing devices can be attached to the Infoprint 3300-ES1 and 3300-ED1/ED2 Printers. The first group of pre-and post-processing devices require an interface that essentially passes basic communication and electrical signals from the printer controller and pre-and post-processing device. Examples of such devices are roll-paper feeders on the input side and cutters or stackers on the output side of the printers. The interface referenced in this case is feature number 4710 (one 4710 comes standard on each print engine). The Infoprint 3300-ES1 and 3300-ED1/ED2 Printing Systems includes enhancements to alert the AFCCU to paper jams in devices connected through the 4710 interface, allowing the printer and the host to manage recovery for the entire paper path, including the post-processing device. This is an IBM exclusive.

The second group of devices referenced requires more "intelligent" communication between the AFCCU and the post-processing equipment. Included in this group are MICR check printers (order RPQ 8A8083 for MICR font support), selective color imprinters, all-points-addressable post- processing printers, etc. These devices require the "Advanced Function Post-processing Interface, feature number 4720, which provides 2-way intelligent communication between the device and the AFCCU. Inherent in this communication is the capability for recovery management from end to end of the paper path to the output side of the post-processor.

Operating Environment
Product/Feature Overview

Print Quality:

The IBM Infoprint 3300-ES1 and 3300 ED1/ED2 Printing Systems have IBM's exclusive Print Quality Enhancement (PQE) which smooths edges during 240 to 480 dpi and 300 to 600 dpi conversion of raster font data.

Edge smoothing is the reduction of the "stair-stepping" appearance of diagonal lines and curves.

Print contrast control allows the operator to adjust print darkness.

Achieving optimum print quality is dependent upon paper quality.

Supplies:

The IBM Infoprint 3300-ES1 and ED1/ED2 have unique supplies and part numbers, except for the Fuser Oil.

Duty Cycle:

The IBM Infoprint 3000 Advanced Function Continuous Forms Printers (models; 3300-ES1, 3300-ED1/ED2) have the following monthly printing capacities, based on Impressions-per-Month.

Paper Handling

Input Continuous Forms:

The Infoprint 3300-ES1, and ED1/ED2 Printers have a paper supply capacity of 15.5 inches (387.5 mm) of fanfold paper.

Special feature number 4710 (one comes standard on each engine) provides the attachment for high-capacity, roll-feed devices that will enable the customer to fully utilize the high-productivity capabilities of the IBM Infoprint 3000 family. Such roll-feed input devices enable continuous printing of several hours between paper loading.

There is a standard splicing station to minimize waste and increase operator efficiency.

Output Continuous Forms:

The IBM Infoprint 3300-ES1 and ED1/ED2 Printers are provided with a stacker on each engine with a maximum paper capacity of up to 12 inches (300 mm) in height. The actual height may be operator adjusted to limit the weight of the output stack of paper. The stacker can stack paper with lengths between 7 and 14 inches (178 to 356 mm).

The ability to attach post-processing equipment (feature numbers 4710 and 4720) allows additional input and output capabilities.

Paper Sizes:

The Infoprint 3300-ES1 and 3300-ED1/ED2 paper sizes are:

  • Width:
    • 9 to 18 inches (229 to 457 mm; continuously variable) in duplex
    • 8 to 18 inches (203 to 457 mm; continuously variable) in simplex


      Note:The maximum print width is 17 inches (432 mm).

  • Length: 3(6) to 28 inches (76 to 711 mm) in 1/6 inch increments.
  • Length: 7(6) to 14 inches (178 to 356 mm) lengths (in 1/3 and 1/2 inch increments) are supported by the standard stacker.
Note:14 to 28(7) inches (178 to 711 mm) lengths may be printed but cannot be stacked with the standard stacker. When printing 14 to 28 inch form length, suitable post-processing equipment is recommended.

Note:(6) Lengths less than 7 inches (178 mm) are folded in multiples by the forms supplier and the stacker. (For example, forms 3.5 inches in length may be folded every 7 inches.)

Note:(7) There are limitations on the maximum page size that can be addressed by an application program. If you have a requirement for a page larger than 22.7 inches, it is recommended you contact your IBM representative or by calling Techline at 888-426-5525 for a review of the application.

Paper Weights:

The Infoprint 3000 printer family supports the following paper weights:

  • 16 to 28 pound (60 to 105 g/m2) bond in duplex mode
  • 16 to 42 pound (60 to 157 g/m2) bond in simplex and dual simplex mode
Paper Types:

The IBM Infoprint 3000 Advanced Function Continuous Forms Printers can print on normal fanfold paper, roll-feed paper, and preprinted forms. One of the key factors in achieving optimum print quality is the quality of the paper used for printing.

Certain applications may cause excessive wear or premature failure of some components of the 3300-ES1 and 3300-ED1/ED2. In these situations, a customer with maintenance provided under the IBM Customer Agreement of IBM Machines may be liable for increased maintenance charges.

OCR and Bar Codes:

The IBM Infoprint 3300-ES1 and 3300-ED1/ED2 Printing Systems can be used to print Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and bar code documents when attached to host environments. The AFCCU supports Bar Code Object Content Architecture (BCOCA) which enables the printing of bar codes without special bar code fonts. The OCR and bar codes produced by the 3300-ES1 and 3300-ED1/ED2 are designed to meet OCR and Bar Code printing standards. However, because of the variability of OCR readers, and bar code scanners, IBM advises customers to evaluate the IBM Infoprint 3300-ES1 and 3300-ED1/ED2's OCR and bar code output in their application environment. The Infoprint 3300-ES1 and 3300-ED1/ED2 support Postal Bar Codes (requires local certification by your local postal service). Refer to theForms Design Reference for Continuous Forms Printers (G544-3921) for more detailed OCR and bar code information. The IBM Infoprint 3300-ES1 and 3300-ED1/ED2 printing systems support the following BCOCA Bar Code Symbologies:

  • Code 39 (3-of-9 Code), AIM USS-39
  • MSI (modified plessey code)

  • Japan Postal Bar Code
AFCCU and Printer Utility Module Description/Function:

The Infoprint 3300-ES1 and 3300-ED2 control unit consists of a RS/6000 processor plus a Mechanism Interface Card (MIC). The MIC connects to the print engine, the operator panel, and the pre/post-processing interfaces. The MIC is connected to the RS/6000 processor via Serial Storage Architecture (SSA) cables. The host attachment connects to the RS/6000 processor as does the color touch panel operator console.

The operator console consists of an IBM color monitor and a touch- screen input device. The operator interface is based on XWindows and Motif. Motif is a set of interface standards set forth by the Open Software Foundation (OSF). These standards are supported by IBM.

Available host adapters for the AFCCU include S/370 parallel channel, ESCON fiber-optic serial channel, token-ring (TCP/IP), ethernet 10/100 BaseT (TCP/IP), FDDI (TCP/IP).

The Infoprint 3300-ED1 Printer Utility Module (PUM) consists of a Mechanism Interface Card (MIC). The MIC connects to the print engine, pre/post-processing interfaces, and the AFCCU via Serial Storage Architecture (SSA) cables.

Select Medium Modifications (SMM):

IPDS supports a command, Select Medium Modifications (SMM), which in conjunction with the AFCCU and the MIC selects one or more actions or modifications to be taken or inhibited on the current sheet of physical media (paper) being processed by post-processing equipment. See theData Stream and Object Architectures, IPDS Reference(S544-3417).

The SMM command is used to invoke processing options through the Advanced Function Post-processing Interface feature (#4720).

PAGE POSITIONING FUNCTION

Basic N-Up Page Positioning:

With N-Up Page Positioning, you can print up to four pages in partitions on one side of a form which enables you to print much more data on a form, saving printer-usage costs, paper, and storage space.

Enhanced N-Up Page Positioning:

With Enhanced N-Up Page Positioning, you can place up to four pages at any location on a form--up to 8 pages on both sides of the forms in duplex system--in any orientation, and of any size.

Cut Sheet Emulation:

Cut Sheet Emulation (CSE) is an option on the printer console that automatically invokes an N-Up arrangement to emulate 2 side-by-side sheets of cut sheet paper. Duplex jobs print page 2 on the back of page 1 and page 4 on the back of page 3. CSE provides for different page arrangements to accommodate different post-processing requirements. Pages can be placed sequentially from left to right or right to left and right side up or upside down. CSE requires support in Print Services Facility (PSF). The console option for CSE has no effect unless the printer has a PSF that supports CSE.

Note:Cut Sheet Emulation applies to PSF/MVS, PSF/VM, or PSF/400 V3R1 only.

When the CSE option is enabled, all jobs sent to the printer print 2-up, side-by-side except when:

  • N-Up Page Positioning is specified in the form definition. In this case, the N-up specification is used and CSE is ignored.
  • the PSF print driver supports optional page-size verification to disable CSE.
Options for Multiple-Up Printing:

With the addition of Cut Sheet Emulation (CSE), you now have several options for formatting multiple-up application pages on a single printer sheet:

  • Multiple-Up defined in the page definition resource
  • N-Up defined in the form definition resource
  • Cut Sheet Emulation selected at the Operator Console
Applications printing simple line data that use the same formatting for each page can easily be handled with traditional multiple-up. They can be handled as well by N-Up Page Positioning and Cut Sheet Emulation if they do not require more than 4 pages for N-Up (8 for duplex) or more than 2 for CSE (4 for duplex) on printers that support N-Up and CSE.

CSE can be used whenever the desired output is 2 pages of equal size, side-by-side on the same sheet. CSE is especially useful for moving applications for 8.5 x 11-inch forms to 2-up printing 11 x 17-inch forms. No change is required to the AFP form definition resource to enable CSE 2-Up printing. The same form definition can be used for printing 1-up on 8.5 x 11-inch forms or 2-up on 11 x 17-inch forms.

N-Up Page Positioning is needed for applications that require pages of different sizes or page positioning other than 2-up side by side. Instructions must be placed in the form definition for N-Up printing.

FONT CAPABILITY

The IBM Infoprint 3300-ES1 and 3300-ED1/ED2 supports outline fonts for both Double-Byte (DBCS) and Single-Byte (SBCS) character sets. Since outline foots are scalable and resolution independent, the same fonts can be used for printing at any point size and at either 480 dpi or 600 dpi resolution in any of the four supported print rotations. A wide range of outline font type styles in a variety of language families are also available as resident fonts on the 3300's hard disk. Outline fonts can be downloaded to the printer from PSF libraries.

Raster pattern fonts at 240 dpi are supported in SBCS and DBCS formats when printing in 480 dpi resolution. 300 dpi raster SBCS fonts will be supported when printing in 600 dpi resolution. At 600 dpi, the printer provides multiple IPDS resolution options: a 240 dpi option that supports 240 dpi raster fonts, a 300 dpi option that supports 300 dpi raster fonts, and an Automatic Resolution option that support raster fonts of both 240 and 300 dpi resolution. PSF multiple-resolution support is required to make use of the printers Automatic Resolution option.

Raster fonts must be downloaded from PSF host libraries in the resolution and size required for printing. Font sizes from 4 to 72 points (approximately 1-inch high) are supported. You must verify the legibility of the 4-point font sets in their applications. Only one copy of a font is required for all four font rotations in the printer. The font is oriented for printing at print time.

Raster fonts are supported by all PSF platforms. Printer resident outline fonts are supported by the latest maintenance levels of all PSFs except when using the DPF function of PSF for OS/2. Downloaded outline fonts are supported by all PSF platforms except PSF/VM. Multiple resolution support is provided by PSF/MVS 2.2 with APAR OW27622, and by Infoprint Manager(8).

Note:(8) Information on supported release levels will be provided prior to General Availability.

Print-to-Perforation Capability:

The IBM Infoprint 3300-ES1 and 3300-ED1/ED2 are designed to print to the perforation without degrading speed. As with other print-to-perforation printers, print quality degradation will occur near the perforation with fanfold paper that "tents" (that is, retains a "memory" of the fold). There will be no degradation at distances from the perforation of 1/3 inch (8.5 mm) for character data, and 1/2 inch (12.7 mm) for solid area fill, logos, or images. With a roll-feed paper input, no change in print quality should be apparent up to 2 mm of the perforation.

Footprint/Layout (3300-ED1/ED2):

IBM recommends either the "straight line" or the "reverse L" (the print engines form a "L" with the operator position facing inside the "L" toward the front of both print engines). A buffer/flipper device controls the paper flow between the two engines. (In the "reverse L" configuration the buffer/flipper device needs to be secured to the floor). Each print engine occupies approximately 24 square feet (2.23 square meters) of floor space with the AFCCU or Printer Utility Module (PUM). The total system with the buffer/flipper device will occupy approximately 72 square feet or 6.69 square meters dependent on the number of buffer pages between the two printers. This does not include pre/postprocessing devices.

Operator Controls:

The display and operator input functions of the IBM Infoprint 3300-ES1 and 3300-ED1/ED2's are provided via a XGA touch screen. The touch-screen panel is the primary control panel utilized by both operator and customer engineer.

Additionally, there is an auxiliary control panel on the stacker or PUM end of each engine. This auxiliary panel has STOP, READY, and STACKER ADJUSTMENT controls.

An operator alert facility that includes a flashing light and an audible alarm with volume control is located on top of a pedestal that is mounted to the top of the AFCCU or Printer Utility Module (PUM). The AFCCU is attached to the right side of the print engine. The operator alert, mounted flush with the top of the AFCCU, reaches 8 inches (200 mm) above the top of the AFCCU and overall print engine top. There is also a jack/plug for remote attachment of operator attention equipment (using customer-supplied power).

Direct-printing:

The IBM Infoprint 3300-ES1 or 3300-ED1/ED2's may be used as a direct output device (direct-printing) when attached to an OS/390 or MVS host system. When the IBM Infoprint 3000 Advanced Function Continuous Forms Printer is used in direct-printing mode, Print Services Facility/MVS (PSF/MVS) provides exclusive use of a particular application. The user with direct control of the IBM Infoprint 3300-ES1 or 3300-ED1/ED2 cannot take advantage of system-assisted restart, data set checkpointing, multiple data set processing, or use of operator commands available through JES to control the printer.

OPERATING ENVIRONMENT

The IBM Infoprint 3300-ES1 and 3300-ED1/ED2 operate in a class A1 environment and will meet or exceed all worldwide regulations as they apply to environmental impact for business machines of this type.

Temperature and Humidity Ranges:

  • Temperature: 16 to 29 degrees C (60.8 to 84.2 degrees F)
  • Relative Humidity: 20 to 80 percent
Note:In order to achieve and sustain best machine performance and print quality, machines that will print CONTINUOUSLY for periods of four hours or greater should be operated within the following environmental envelope:
  • Temperature: 65-75 Degrees Fahrenheit (18-24 degrees Centigrade)
  • Relative Humidity: 40 to 60 percent

Hardware Requirements

Machine Requirements or Attachment Capability/Processors:

The Infoprint 3300-ES1 and 3300-ED1/ED2 support a maximum of two attachments. These attachments can be:

  • ESCON channel
  • System/370 parallel channel
  • Token Ring (TCP/IP)
  • Ethernet (TCP/IP)
  • FDDI (TCP/IP)
The two attachments may be the same (for example, two ESCON channels), or mixed (for example, one ESCON and one Token-Ring). The exception is that the printer can have only one TCP/IP attachment of any flavor. You cannot have two Token-Ring attachments, for example. For a single printer (a simplex printer, a duplex printing system, or a dual simplex printer), only one attachment can be active at a time. If both attachments are to the same system, or to a tightly-coupled system, and the attachments are of the same type channel (example, both are ESCON or both are parallel channel), then switching between the two attachments can be performed dynamically by the host system. If the attachments or host differ, or the hosts are not tightly-coupled, then the switch must be performed manually by the operator. The printer must be disabled from the current system and attachment before it can be enabled to the other attachment.

System/370 Parallel Channel:

System/370 parallel channel attachment is supported on OS/390, PSF/MVS, PSF/VM, and PSF/VSE printing environments.

  • For S/370 parallel channel attachment, a control unit position on a S/370 parallel block multiplexer channel is required on an IBM 3090(TM) or ES/9000(TM) processor.
  • The following processors are also supported for S/370 parallel channel attachments: S/390 Parallel Enterprise Server, and the S/390 Multiprise 2000 servers.
  • Attachment is also supported via the 9034 ESCON Converter Model 1.
ESCON Channel:

ESCON channel is supported on OS/390, PSF/MVS, PSF/VM, and PSF/VSE printing environments.

  • The IBM Infoprint 3300-ES1 and 3300-ED1/ED2 may be attached natively to IBM ESCON channel (3090-J, 9021, 9121, 9221, 9672, 2003).
  • Attachment is also supported via the 9032/9033 ESCON Directors and 9036 ESCON Remote Channel Model 1 and Model 2.
The ESCON attachment may be shared between different ESCON systems or different ESCON multiple image facility (EMIF) images, if ALL host systems connected to the printer are using the OS/390 (V1R3.0 or higher) operating system and ALL of the PSF/MVS applications in those systems have the APAR OW29992 installed. Such OS/390 systems can be guests of VM/ESA.

When these conditions are met for ESCON then the multihost flag can be set to "TRUE" in the printer. This will automatically invoke the protocol allowing the printer to print only one host (or OS/390 guest of VM) at a time. When the first host is printing the second host will receive an "assigned elsewhere" message until the first host is finished printing and releases the printer.

Token-Ring (TCP/IP) Attachment:

Token-Ring (TCP/IP) attachment is supported on PS/400, PSF for AIX, and Infoprint Manager for AIX printing environments along with selected RS/6000 and AS/400 models.

The 3300-ES1 and 3300-ED1/ED2 are connected to the host Token-Ring through the IBM Token-Ring cabling via the Token Ring High-performance adapter, which is contained in the AFCCU.

The control unit can be attached to either a 16 Mbit/sec or a 4 Mbit/sec Token-Ring LAN.

The TCP/IP Token-Ring Attachment will attach to the following devices:

  • 8228 Token Ring Multistation Access Unit attached to an AS/400 or RS/6000 processor
  • 8230 Token Ring Network Controller Access attached to an AS/400 or RS/6000 processor
  • 8228 Token Ring Multistation Access Unit attached to a 3172, 3174, 3745, 3725, or 3720 attached to a 3090, ES/9000, or 308X processor
  • 8230 Token Ring Multistation Access Unit attached to a 3172, 3174, 3745, 3725, or 3720 attached to a 3090, ES/9000, or 308X processor


    The printer may be located at a maximum distance of 100 meters (328 ft) from the 8228 Multistation Access Unit or 8230 Controlled Access Unit.

    The distance between the 8228 Multistation Access Units can be increased with either the 8220 or 8219 Optical Fiber Repeater.

  • Installation Instructions are provided with the feature.
Ethernet 10/100 BaseT (TCP/IP):

(#4231) PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENT (3300-ED1/ED2) (Available March 26, 1999)

Available on the 3300-ED2 only.

The Performance Enhancement feature improves the processing performance of the AFCCU. This feature can improve printer throughput for jobs printing below printer rated speed if the throughput of those jobs is limited by printer processing capability. It cannot improve performance for jobs for which throughput is limited by other factors such as, attachment or host system delivery capacity. The amount of improvement will depend on application characteristics and printer resolution. Contact Tech Help Line at 1-800-358-6661 (option 5) or submit a question through ViewBlue for marketing and technical information.

Prerequisites: IBM Infoprint 3300-ED1/ED2. Corequisites: None. Compatibility Conflicts: None. Limitations: None. Maximum: One. Cable orders: None. Field Installation: Yes.

(#4367) 256MB ADDITIONAL MEMORY (3300-ED2) Available on the 3300-ED2 only.

This feature may be ordered in addition to the standard 256 MB of memory. Two additional memory features can be ordered (2-128 MB cards per feature). A total of 768 MB of memory is supported.

Major criteria for selecting the additional memory are:

  • Density of application data: very dense text, large images, images with poor compression characteristics. Effective density is increased when printing multiple up pages.
  • Large number of downloaded resources (fonts, overlays, page segments)
  • Double-byte font usage
Printer resolution also impacts memory requirements. An application requiring additional memory for printing at 600 dpi may not need additional memory if printed at 480 dpi.

Prerequisites: IBM Infoprint 3300-ED2. Corequisites: None. Compatibility Conflicts: None. Limitations: None. Maximum: Two. Cable orders: None. Field Installation: Yes.

(#4710) PRE/POST-PROCESSING INTERFACE One 4710 comes standard on the IBM Infoprint 3300-ES1 and EACH ENGINE of the Infoprint 3300-ED1/ED2.

The Pre/Post-processing interface provides electrical interface for the attachment of OEM pre-and post-processing equipment to the Infoprint 3300-ED1 and the 3300-ED1/ED2 printers. The 4710 feature also provides control of add-on pre/post-processing devices (such as, continuous forms stackers, envelope inserting equipment, roll-feed equipment, among others).
