4230-4I3 IBM Impact Matrix Printer Model 4I3

The IBM 4230 Printer is a family of heavy-duty serial impact matrix printers that may be used as workstation printers in the System/390*, System/370*, large S/36* and AS/400* systems environment, and as primary printers for small S/36 and AS/400 systems.

The 4230 Printer combines the versatility and high reliability of the 4224 Printer with superior price/performance and exclusive design features, including one of the lowest noise levels of any tabletop printer in its speed and price range.

The IBM 4230 Printers are offered in a range of models and feature 32K to 128K of memory, printing speeds of 375 cps, 480 cps, or 600 cps, twinaxial or coaxial attachments, SCS (PDS), IPDS (intelligent printer data stream), DSC (non-SNA 3270/IPDS) or DSE (LU3-3270) data streams, and an automatic forms-thickness adjustment that sets the gap between print head and paper precisely, eliminating a user task and improving paper handling and print-head life.

The 4230 also offers new forms-handling features that include the Dual Purpose Module (DPM), which combines highly reliable feeding of continuous forms and minimal paper waste with the document-on-demand (DOD) tearoff function, an optional automatic sheet feed (ASF) that provides automatic feeding of cut sheets, and ease- of-use features like an 80-character liquid crystal display (LCD) operator panel that makes setup and daily operations more efficient by providing prompts and menu selections. Some models are available to support advanced printing functions available through the IPDS while maintaining compatibility with the 4224 Printer and existing 4230 printers. Other models support the SCS (PDS) data stream and are compatible with the earlier IBM 3268 and 3287 Printers and IBM 4214 Printers. Still other models support the IBM Proprinter II XL, IBM Proprinter III XL, IBM 4224, and Epson FX 1050 ASCII emulation.

The IBM 4230 has applications in environments such as the IBM mainframe, the IBM AS/400, the IBM RS/6000*, and the IBM Personal System/2*, and local area networks.

Pennant Systems is extending the IBM 4230 Printer family with four new models: the 4230-4S3, 4230-4I3, 4230-5S3, and 4230-5I3. In addition to printing at 600 characters per second (CPS), these heavy-duty impact matrix printers come standard with multiple attachment capabilities. Each model supports simultaneous serial and parallel attachment plus either twinaxial or coaxial attachment.

These printers complement the capabilities of the IBM 4232-302 printer by providing improved customer value, full compatibility with the IBM 4224-3XX plus IBM Proprinter II XL, IBM Proprinter III XL and Epson FX 1050 emulation. The result is a complete ASCII printing solution combined with the ruggedness, proven reliability and system attachment support of the existing IBM 4230 Printer models.

IBM 4230 Printers may be used as workstation printers for large S/36, AS/400 systems, RS/6000, or Personal System/2 environments and as the primary shared printer for small S/36, AS/400 systems and LAN environments.

The new IBM 4230 Printers provide IBM Proprinter II XL, IBM Proprinter III XL, Epson FX 1050 and 4224-3XX emulation modes. These emulations are selectable from the operator panel.

Each of the new IBM 4230 Printers supports IBM PC ASCII (Centronics) Parallel, RS-232C Serial, and RS-422A Serial host interfaces. In addition, the 4230-4X3 models support twinaxial attachment and the 4230-5X3 models support coaxial attachment.

The new 4230 printer models print in fast draft print quality mode at 600 CPS, offer simultaneous serial, parallel, and coax or twinax attachment capability, 4230 ruggedness and reliability, and a choice of datastream support at a very attractive price.

Business Solutions - Investment Protection:

Because the new 4230 Printer models offer combination attachment capability, customers can rest easy as their enterprise moves from a centralized to a distributed computing and printing environment. The new IBM 4230 Printers will move with the needs of the business from a mainframe or AS/400 system to a workstation or LAN environment. In fact, during the transition, the printers may be attached both to an ASCII and a traditional system host. The operator simply enables the attachment of choice by making an operator panel selection.

Limitations

Throughput Considerations

The overall throughput depends on the emulation mode (for example, IBM Proprinter II XL, IBM Proprinter III XL, IBM 4224 or Epson FX 1050), print mode, application program, system response time, and the type of print operation being done. Any print operation that requires multiple passes or a reduction of horizontal dot spacing causes a reduction in the throughput.

Some print operations that affect throughput are:

  • Heavy print patterns
  • Line length -- number of characters per line
  • Bold printing, double-strike printing, and other types of emphasis
  • Graphics printing
  • Bar-code printing

The 4230 uses an internal print management feature to guard against overheating the print head due to the quantity of dots being printed. During extended printing of dense lines, or during extended printing of long line lengths, this temperature safeguard may cause the speed of the print mechanism to decrease, lowering overall throughput proportionally.

4202 Emulation Limitations of the New Models of the 4230

The 4230 is supported in 4202 (IBM Proprinter II XL or IBM Proprinter III XL) emulation mode by most application software. The following deviations from 4202 emulation should be noted:

  • The 4230 cannot accept and print 4202 font downloads. Instead, national language support requirements are provided via 4230 resident fonts.
  • While the 4230 supports double high printing, it will not print double high characters like a 4202. Instead, the page format integrity is maintained by printing single high characters with double-space line feeds.
  • The 4230 will support the CANCEL control, but in some situations CANCEL will clear a different amount of data than it clears on the 4202 for the same job. Fortunately, CANCEL is rarely, if ever, used by the popular drivers.

The 4230 supports the Essay font (i.e., proportional spacing) in DP Text and NLQ modes only. Certain characters and code pages are unprintable in fast-draft print quality.

Epson FX 1050 Emulation Limitations of the New Models of the 4230

The 4230 is supported in Epson FX 1050 emulation by most application software. The following deviations from Epson FX 1050 emulation should be noted:

  • The 4230 cannot accept and print Epson font downloads. Instead, national language support requirements are provided via 4230 resident fonts.
  • While the 4230 supports double high printing, it will not print double high characters like an Epson printer. Instead, the page format integrity is maintained by printing single high characters with double- space line feeds.
  • The 4230 does not support Epson Inter-Character Spacing commands.
  • The 4230 does not support the Epson Select Justification (left, right or center) commands.

Systems Attachment Limitations of the New Models of 4230

The 4230 is supported in 4224 mode only by most system software. 4230 mode is currently supported by OS/400 Version 2 Release 2 and GDDM Version 3.1.

Models 4S3 and 5S3 will not support proportional spacing. Models 4I3 and 5I3 will not have proportional spacing in the following languages: Katakana, Arabic, Thai, Cyrillic, Yugoslav, and Korean. Code Pages 01002 (DCF Release 2 Compatibility), 00833 (Korean), and 01026 (Turkish) are not available on AS/400 prior to OS/400 Version 2, Release 2. Certain characters and code pages are unprintable in fast-draft print quality. These code pages are not supported in Fast Draft print quality: OCR-A, OCR-B (code pages 892, 893, 340); Arabic (code page 420), APL (code pages 310, 293); Korean (code page 833); Hebrew (code pages 424, 803); Thai (code page 838); and Cyrillic (code page 880). Refer to the "IBM 4230 Product and Programming Description - Models 101, 201, 1S2, 2S2, 4S3, and 5S3", GC40-0595, and the "IBM Product and Programming Description - Models 102, 202, 1I1, 2I1, 4I3, and 5I3", GC40-1701 for details regarding which characters are supported.

Models 5S3 and 5I3 in non-IPDS mode will provide GDDM text and graphics output in DP quality and non-color only. An upgrade to IPDS is recommended for better print quality if full GDDM support is needed.

The 4230-4S3 deviates from the 4214 in its support of code pages. The 4230 implements version 1 rather than version 0 of code pages 00500, 00037, 00273, 00274, 00275, 00276, 00277, 00278, 00297, 00280, 00281, 00282, 00284 and 00285. In all of these code pages, the affected code points are 0xB4, 0xBF and 0xE1.

The 4230 deviates from the 4214 in one of the supported LCIDs. In the 4214, LCID 1 and LCID 11 (decimal), both correspond to IBM Registered Code Page 00037, version 1 known as USA/Canada. The 4230 supports this code page with LCID 1 only. LCID 11 corresponds to code page 290 known as Japanese Katakana.

Compatibility with Other Coaxially Attached Printers

The 4230 Model 5S3 is data-stream compatible with the 4224 and 3268/3287 for non-IPDS printing applications. The 4230 Model 5I3 is data-stream compatible with the 4224 printer in IPDS printing applications. There are minor differences described in the IBM 4230 Printer Product and Programming Description manual and the IBM 4230 Product and Programming Description manual along with comparisons of operator panel functions between the 4232, 4230, 4224, and the 3268/3287 that should be reviewed. For example, the 4230 has no index key (3268) but does have vernier keys to move the forms up, down, and linefeed to move the forms 1/6 of an inch. When selecting operator panel changes online (for example, MPP or MPL), these changes are buffered and may not take effect immediately depending on the print job in process. Unlike the 3268/3287, overprinting of text can occur after aborts, buffer reprints, and cancels if the subsequent print job does not include an initial line feed. The 4230 does support 16.7 characters per inch (3268). IPDS is available in SCS (SNA LU-1) and 3270 DSC (non-SNA) environments only.

4230 Models 202, 2I1 and 5I3 Compatibility Considerations Regarding PSF

  • PSF does not support printing error recovery for printers driven by RSCS.
  • The 4230 prints with single-byte fonts, not with double-byte fonts.
  • Differences in the content of the character sets for the fonts provided by PSF and the fonts resident in the 4230 may result in inconsistent printed output.
  • The 4230 prints only in zero-degree character rotation (no rotated fonts).
  • The 4230 prints with 144 picture element (pel) resolution and does not support 240-pel resolution. Printing a 240-pel image on the 4230 will expand the image by 66 percent (1.66 times larger), and the image origin will move. To print images correctly on the 4230, 144-pel images must be created.
  • The 4230 prints in simplex and does not support duplex printing.
  • The 4230 prints with resident fonts and cannot accept fonts downloaded by PSF.
  • The 4230 supports one IPDS copy-group per page. This copy-group may specify no more than one copy of the page.
  • The CPI selection on the 4230 is determined by the font selected.
  • The 4230 resident font selected determines (in part) the print quality of the output. The 4230 provides 14 fonts that are compatible with the fonts provided by PSF (12 compatibility fonts for DP, DP text, and NLQ print qualities, two compatibility fonts for fast-draft print quality).
  • Output from OGL is not supported on the 4230.

Compatibility with Twinaxially Attached Printers

The 4230 Models 1S2 and 4S3 are generally compatible with the IBM 4214 Printer when attached to System/36 and/or the AS/400. There are minor differences described in the IBM 4230 Printer Product and Programming Description Manual along with comparisons of operator panel functions between the 4232 and 4230, 5224, 5256 and 4214.

Special Feature Name and Number

  • Continuous Forms Module (CFM - F1) (#4001):

    Provides an operator changeable "drop in" mechanism optimized for handling continuous forms utilizing pull tractors. For customers whose applications require continuous forms but do not require any "document on demand" (DOD) capability, this module is the best choice. The right hand tractor is adjustable to accommodate forms width from 3 inches to 15 inches. Forms length can be from 3 inches to 14 inches. Up to 6-part forms may be used.
    Limitations: Forms less than 6 inches in length or width and forms greater than 12.5 inches in length should be tested for satisfactory stacking. This CFM feature cannot be installed in the 4230 simultaneously with other forms handling features (#9502, #9503, #4002, #4003, and #4004).
    Maximum: One.
    Field Installation: Yes.
    Customer Setup: Yes.

  • Dual Purpose Module (DPM - F2) (#4002):

    Provides an operator changeable "drop in" mechanism for handling both long continuous forms jobs and "document on demand" (DOD) tearoff applications. The DPM allows the user to remove (tear off) the individual printed form without wasting a blank form each time forms are removed from the printer. The DPM is required for applications which require the Document on Demand function. The DPM is recommended for applications which need a combination of long continuous forms jobs and the Document on Demand function. The CFM is recommended for all continuous forms applications which do not require the DOD function especially when unattended printing is the only mode of operation. The right hand tractor and feed rolls are adjustable to accommodate forms width from 3 inches to 15 inches. Forms length can be from 3 inches to 14 inches.
    Limitations: Up to 6-part continuous forms may be used., Forms less than 6 inches in length or width and forms greater --IPDS ModeOrdered Page Mode No Yes AFPthan 12.5 inches in length should be tested for satisfactory stacking. Applications requiring more than six forms to be fed before separation (tear off) should be tested for satisfactory operation. No limitations exist to limit the printable area on forms. This feature cannot be installed in the 4230 simultaneously with other forms handling features (#9501, #9503, #4001, #4003, and #4004).
    Maximum: One.
    Field Installation: Yes.
    Customer Setup: Yes.

    NOTE: For both the CFM and the DPM, five-and six-part forms should be tested on an individual basis for acceptable feeding, registration, and print quality before production. Likewise, for optimum performance, printing should be restricted to 6.4 mm (0.25 in.) from all edges, holes, or folds on the forms.

  • Document Insertion Device (DID - F3) (#4003):

    Provides an operator changeable "drop in" mechanism to handle individually inserted forms. Includes a snap on guide for the left edge of the form. The right hand set of feed rolls is adjustable to accommodate forms width from 3 inches to 15 inches. Forms length can be from 7 inches to 14 inches. Limitations: Forms over 13 inches wide should be tested for satisfactory feeding and registration. 2-to 6-part forms should be tested for satisfactory feeding, registration, and print quality. Multi-part form sets must not be fastened with staples, and must be glued only at the top edge securely enough to prevent form separation while passing through the printer. This feature cannot be installed in the 0 simultaneously with other forms handling features (#9501, #9502, #4001, #4002, and #4004).
    Maximum: One.
    Field Installation: Yes.
