The IBM InfoWindow* II 3486 Display Station is a follow-on to the IBM InfoWindow 3476/3477 Display Station offering new and enhanced functions for attachment to AS/400* and System/36 processors. The 3486 includes all functions available on the 3476/3477 for compatibility with current applications.

The 3486 features include:

Enhanced User Interface providing special graphical characters with mouse support

Additional screen formats of 32 x 80 and 49 x 80 for use with split screen

Simultaneous support for two display sessions and one printer session (Display-Display-Printer),

Built-in calculator,

Longer life and reduced power consumption using advanced power management techniques,

Expansion cartridge capability for possible future enhancements or to meet a customer's unique requirements.

Enhancements include:

Operator-selectable horizontal or vertical split screen
Support for additional printers
3812-SCS printer emulation

The 3486 complies with emerging internationally recognized standards such as ISO (International Organization for Standardization) 9241 (part 3) and Swedish electromagnetic field recommendation (MPR-II). National language support is expanded to meet the latest requirements which include keyboards for Eastern Europe countries.

User Productivity

The 3486 supports the Enhanced User Interface which provides special graphical characters with mouse support. The new special graphical characters include: scroll bars, radio buttons, push-buttons, check boxes, and continuous window frames. The Enhanced User Interface enables pop-up menus and help screens, thereby providing improved interaction between users and their applications. An AS/400 processor with OS/400 Version 2 Release 2 and feature 6050, or the 5494 remote control unit Release 1.1, is required to take advantage of this enhanced capability.

The 3486, together with IBM WindowTool/400 (5798-RYF), offers a low cost workstation window user interface, including support for the mouse.

The 3486 enhances the support of multi-sessions capability, allowing simultaneous support of two display sessions and one printer session (display-display-printer).

New display formats of 32 x 80, and 43 x 80 are available for use with advanced functions such as split screen. Split screen capability is also enhanced on the 3486. The user can divide the display screen into two variable size partitions, horizontally or vertically, to view different sessions.

The 3486 supports a calculator to perform local calculations, which operates in the OIA (operator information area) keeping the screen display totally viewable. The user can import data from an application to perform a calculation. The calculator allows storing and retrieving of numeric data, as well as frequently used mathematical expressions.

The 3486 has an etched screen, which minimizes glare and fingerprints. The 3486 utilizes a CRT with a high transmittance face plate. This CRT has the appearance of lightening the background. This technology has found wide acceptance among users in Europe. The use of a high transmittance face plate also tends to reduce reflections. Indicators displayed in symbols on the bottom row of the screen, outside the data area, 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 5 or 12 degrees.

Field editing: 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, Monocase, and right to left in Arabic and Hebrew.

Business Solutions

A printer port is now supported on all models of the 3486, which provides host-addressable print as well as local screen copy. The type of printers has been expanded to include laser printers like IBM 4019/4029 or Hewlett-Packard LaserJet III**. Printer emulation is also enhanced to include 3812-SCS printer emulation, including COR (computer-oriented rotation) function, which allows print images to be shrunk automatically without changing the paper setting. The 3486 supports download of a printer definition table (PDT) to provide increased flexibility of the printer attachment. Users may be able to attach various ASCII printers by downloading a PDT from the AS/400 processor. With new AS/400 Workstation customization capability, customer can create the PDT, or keyboard table for keyboard remapping. AS/400 V2R2 is required for workstation customization.

The 3486 front-of-screen (FOS) characteristics meet or exceed the internationally recognized ISO 9241 (part 3). ISO 9241 (part 3) includes: a new character font on most models and screen formats, and reduced flicker using a 75 Hz refresh rate. The 3486 meets or exceeds the Swedish recommendation (MPR-II) for magnetic fields (VLMF/ELMF), electric fields (VLEF/ELEF) as well as electro statics (ESF) to meet emerging workplace requirements.

The 3486 provides features to aid physically impaired persons, which include character attribute color selection for ease of character recognition by persons having problems with certain colors, adjustable typematic rate to control the rate at which characters are repeated using typematic action, adjustable vertical and horizontal mouse speed and double click interval, ability to change primary mouse button, and IBM KeyGuard accessory to prevent accidental striking of the wrong key or several keys simultaneously.

Investment Protection

The 3486 supports a new advanced power management feature that turns off components not used during periods of inactivity. This power management feature reduces power consumption up to 65 percent and reduces component stress. A screen dimming feature blanks the application display area when the terminal is inactive. This reduces phosphor burn. These may result in extending the life of the monitor.

The 3486 provides a monitor adjustment capability through keyboard operation. Users can adjust the front-of-screen characteristics such as dot width, centering, viewing area, pincushioning and brightness, to compensate for monitor aging. (Monochrome monitor can adjust dot width only.)

Systems Management

The 3486 is plug compatible with 3476/3477 InfoWindow displays to provide access to existing midrange host applications through the 5250 architecture.

In addition, the 3486 provides multilanguage support to meet customer requirements for global network communication. Users can select code pages and character sets dynamically, which allows easier access to a host in other languages. Different code pages and character sets can be specified to each of two sessions independently and can be viewed simultaneously in split screen mode. An AS/400 processor with OS/400 Version 2 Release 2 or the 5494 Release 1.1 under an AS/400 processor with OS/400 Version 2 Release 2 is required to support multilanguage for the 3486.

The 3486 provides vital product data to the AS/400 system. This information (machine type, model and display address) is collected by the AS/400 system and is available to users and application programs via the display local hardware command (DSPLCLHDW).

Growth Enablement

The 3486 supports the expansion cartridge for possible future function enhancements or to meet the customer's unique requirements. The 3486 also supports character font download capability to support additional language in the future. An AS/400 processor with OS/400 Version 2 Release 2 or the 5494 remote control unit Release 1.1, is required for this capability.

Devices Supported

The IBM 3486 attaches to the IBM System/36 and AS/400 machines or remotely to the IBM 5294, 5394, or 5494 Remote Control Unit via the IBM Cabling System, twinaxial cable, type 3 telephone twisted pair (TTP), or equivalent. When attached via the TTP, there can only be one display per port, and there needs to be a twinax to twisted pair adaptor (TTPA) at each end of the twisted pair cable unless a 5299 Model 3 Terminal Multiconnector is used.

To attach the IBM 3486 to the AS/400 machine, a twinaxial workstation controller is required for local attachment; for remote attachment, a 5294, 5394 or 5494 remote controller

The IBM 5294 is already withdrawn from marketing and no product support is available.
