The 4430TX and 4430CX are the direct replacements for the PrintBox TXP Plus, CXP Plus, TXP Lite, and CXP Lite parallel printer interfaces.
The 4431TX and 4431CX are the direct replacements for the PrintBox TXS Plus and CXS Plus serial printer interfaces.Features
Attaches virtually any PC printer with a parallel port or serial port to an IBM Power System, System i, i5, iSeries AS/400, System/3X, or 53X4 Remote Controller with a standard Twinax (or balun) connection, or to a 3270-type mainframe host or 3174 type controller with a standard coax (or balun) connection.
Setup is quick and easy via the mouse-supported PC setup software, through Host/PC download commands, and rotary switches.
Comes with the industry's best 3812-1, 4214, 5224/25/56 Twinax and 3812-1, 4214, 4224, 4234, 3287/68/62 coax printer emulations (all non-IPDS).
Supports multiple fonts, duplex printing (Twinax only), Automatic Print Orientation, Computer Output Reduction, and other features. APF/ BGU printing is available across all IBM matrix printer emulations (Twinax).
Comes with drivers for a wide variety of popular PC printers including Hewlett-Packard PCL-type laser, Epson and IBM dot-matrix printers. In addition, laser printers can be driven as IBM 5225 line printers.
Attaches to IBM Power System, System i, i5, iSeries AS/400 or System/3X Hosts, or 5X94 Controllers via Twinax attachment

I-O Command Pass-Thru™
Allows access to all user-programmable printer functions.
Host/PC Download Commands
Allows printer configuration customization.
Custom User Strings
Allows the user to assign commonly used printer commands to simple identifiers which can be sent to the printer prior to printing a document.
