The 3197 Model C Color Display Station displays up to 1,920 characters -- 24 lines of 80 characters each plus an Operator Information Area.
The 3197 Model D and Model W Display Station displays up to 3,564 characters in one of three selectable formats:
- Up to 1,920 characters - 24 lines of 80 characters each
- Up to 3,564 characters - 27 lines of 132 characters each
- In dual address mode, up to 3,280 characters in two split screens - 24 lines of 80 characters each and 17 lines of 80 characters each.
In addition, each of the above formats provides operator message and status lines.
The printer port emulates IBM workstation printers in alphanumeric characters only (5256 or 4214-2) for attached printers which are 4201 Proprinter - all models, 4202 Proprinter XL - all models, 4207 Proprinter X24E Model 2, 4208 Proprinter XL24E Model 2 5202 Quietwriter III printer, or 5201 Models 1 (NO LONGER AVAILABLE) and 2 Quietwriter printer. The attached printer is addressable from the host (programs and other workstations).
The dual address capability allows two concurrent sessions to S/36, S/38, or AS/400. The prime workstation address is assigned to the display and the second is assigned to either the printer (D-P mode) or display (D-D mode). In D-D mode, two jobs are controlled concurrently and a user may alternate between screens from each session through the use of a "hot key".
The 3197-C offers functions equivalent to the 3179-2. In addition, the 3197-C offers the ability to attach a choice of printers and to operate in dual terminal mode when the printer is not in use.
The 3197-D offers functions equivalent to the 3180-2. In addition, the 3197-D offers the ability to attach a choice of printers and to operate in dual terminal mode when the printer is not in use.
Cable-Thru with Auto-Termination and Screen Glare Reduction are standard. Display functions include: non-display, blinking, underscore, column separator, and reverse image (dark characters on a color background) on a field basis. An operator-adjustable alarm is provided to alert the operator to special conditions. The low-profile keyboard with adjustable slope and 24 application-assigned command functions provides input and control flexibility. Easy-to-use select options, provided from the keyboard, allow the operator to utilize a block or underscore cursor, cursor blink or non-blink. The operator can also elect to display the cursor locations (row/column) and screen attribute codes being utilized as well as set the audible alarm volume.
The 3197 uses field formatting capability which permits individual fields of data on the screen to be program-defined with various attributes such as protected/unprotected, alphanumeric, normal/intensified, and displayable/non-displayable.
The 3197 consists of three workstation elements (WSEs): video, logic and keyboard elements.
The 3197 has an etched screen, which minimizes glare and fingerprints. Indicators are displayed in symbols on the bottom row of the screen, outside the data area, and provide useful operator information. Updating the screen from the host is accomplished without refresh interruption (i.e., no blinking). An underline type cursor and a rectangular reverse video cursor, with blinking option are provided. An audible alarm is provided to alert the operator. The volume of the alarm can be adjusted by the operator. The cable-connected keyboard can be moved and the video element can be tilted and swiveled to change the screen angle for the operator. The keyboard slope can be adjusted by the user to 6 or 12 degrees.
Individual data input fields can be edited as Alphanumeric, Alpha Only, Digits only, Numeric Only, Signed Numeric, Field Exit Required, Right Adjust, Mandatory Entry, Mandatory Fill, Bypass, Auto Enter, Dup Enable and Monocase.
The cable attachment between the 3197 and other 5250 system components and/or systems may be made with IBM Cabling System, twinaxial cable, or equivalent. Cable connection: maximum length of any one twinaxial cable is 1,525m (5,000 feet). Up to seven workstations may be attached to a twinaxial cable via the Cable-Thru capability of the 3197-C. See "IBM 5250 Information Display System Planning and Site Preparation Guide", GA21-9337, for cabling information.
The 3197 may also be attached through existing telephone twisted-pair wiring that meets the IBM Type 3 Media Specification. For proper identification, installation, and application of cable and associated accessories, refer to the "IBM 5299 Model 3, Terminal Multi-connector and Telephone Twisted-pair Planning, Setup, and Maintenance Guide", GA27-3749.
A special non-displayed input mode provides for fields of data to be program-defined so that they will accept data entered from the keyboard without displaying the data on the screen. A Security Keylock prevents modification or display of the data in the display terminal if the key is turned to the "LOCKED" position.
These capabilities and the terminal's ability to identify itself to the host program, allow customer-supplied security program routines to control access to data and audit of actions.
User management is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of the security and auditability features, for administrative procedures, and for appropriate controls in application systems. If sensitive data is sent over external communication facilities, user management may wish to pursue the application of cryptography. For more information on data security controls, see "Data Security Controls and Procedures", G320-5649.

- To attach the 3197 Model C20, CE0 to System/38, the WSCE (WorkStation Controller Extended) is required.
For full-character-set support, and IBM Electronic III cartridge in Code Page 850 is required for attachment of the 5202 to the 3197-W. Switch number 1 of switch group 2 in the printer should be set to "ON" to select the pluggable font cartridge. Switch 6 in Switch Group 2 should be set to "ON" to have the printer default to draft print mode when powered ON. Switch 1 in Switch Group 1 should be set to "ON" to select character set 2.
Switch number 1 of Switch Group 2 in the printer should be set to "ON" in order to select the pluggable font cartridge. Switch number 5 should be set to "OFF" and switch number 6 should be set to "ON" in order to have the printer default to the draft print mode when powered ON. Switch number 1 in Switch Group 1 should be set to "ON" to select Character Set 2. For information on setting the switches in the printer, refer to the printer "Guide to Operations".
