The optional Twinax SCS Attachment:

  • Emulates the IBM 4214 and IBM 4230
  • Supports the PDS data stream

Each attachment also supports native IBM 4247 mode.

Optional Twinax and Coax IPDS Attachment Features

With the Coax IPDS Attachment (#4240, #4242) and Twinax IPDS Attachment (#4220, #4222), the 4247-V03 can be driven by Advanced Function Presentation (AFP(TM) applications supported by Print Services Facility (PSF(TM)) and GDDM(R).

Optional Ethernet LAN Attachment Capability

Ethernet 10/100 BaseT Ethernet LAN attachment for either ASCII or IPDS is provided via the Ethernet adapters (#4270, #4272 for ASCII and #4280, #4282 for IPDS)

These adapters:

  • Provide a fully integrated 10/100 BaseT Ethernet solution
  • Are easier to configure than previous 4247 Ethernet offerings

The IPDS adapter replaces the Ethernet I-Data RPQ (RPQ #8B4314), and can be used for either IPDS or ASCII.

With either adapter, the 4247 parallel port is available. (The older ASCII Ethernet adapter, #4260, #4262 utilize the parallel port so that it is not available.)

Hot interface and hot port switching:

  • ASCII Parallel and ASCII LAN hot interface switching is supported
  • ASCII LAN TCP, LPR,Telnet,and FTP hot port switching is supported
  • Hot port switching between the IPDS LAN port and ASCII LAN ports is not supported. Manual switching between IPDS and ASCII is required to switch between these ports.

Protocols Supported by the Ethernet 10/100 BaseT Adapters

The following protocols are supported by the Ethernet 10/100 BaseT adapters (feature numbers 4270, 4272, 4280, and 4282):

  • Ethernet II, SNAP, 802.2, 802.3 and following
  • TCP/IP (UDP, ARP, RARP, ICMP, PING, BOOTP, DHCP, FTP, PSF/AFP IPDS)
  • SMB/NetBIOS
  • SMTP
  • LPR/LPD
  • Direct Socket Printing
  • HTTP

Loading Network Configuration Settings

The network configuration protocol and security settings can be set either from the Operator Panel or from a Web Browser. Detailed information is contained in the 4247 Ethernet NIC Installation Guide (G544-5480).

Microsoft Windows Print Drivers

Print Drivers for Microsoft Windows 95, 98, Me, NT, 2000, and XP are shipped on the CD-ROM included with these features.

Current 4247 Network Print Server and IPDS LAN Attachment Capability

These Ethernet adapters provide a fully integrated Ethernet solution and normally will be the preferred Ethernet adapters.

Other LAN attachment capability is available via:

  • The Network Print Server features (#4121, #4124, #4164, #4165) provide network attachment via the parallel port for Token-Ring and Ethernet. The Network Print Servers plug into the printer parallel port. For Ethernet, the new Ethernet NIC features are installed in the 4247 expansion slot and the parallel port is still available. The Network Print Server and the above RPQs provide the capability for both LAN support and twinax, coax, or serial support on the same IBM 4247 Printer.
  • The I-Data 7913 (RPQ numbers 8B4313 and 8B4314) provides either Token-Ring or Ethernet LAN attachment for IPDS data for twinax and coax printers.

    RPQ #8B4313 provides Token-Ring IPDS support. This RPQ is still required for IPDS Token-Ring. RPQ #8B4314 provides Ethernet IPDS support, and normally the Ethernet IPDS NIC, rather than this RPQ, will now be the preferred solution.

    Neither of these RPQs can be installed when the Ethernet NIC features are installed.

While a Network Print Server and one of the I-Data 7913 RPQs (either RPQ 8B4313 or 8B4314) can both be installed on the same 4247-V03, only one of either the Network Print Server or the I-Data 7913 RPQ network attachments can be active at any time. Manual network switching between the ASCII (Network Print Server) and IPDS (I-Data RPQ) is required to switch between the attachments.

While a Network Print Server and one of the Ethernet 10/100 NICs can be installed on the same 4247, only one of either the Network Print Server or the Ethernet 10/100 BaseT NIC attachments can be active at any time. Manual switching between the ASCII (Network Print Server) and the IPDS Ethernet 10/100 BaseT NIC is required to switch between the attachments.

Replacement, Addition, and Installation of Attachment Cards for Installed Printers

These Ethernet adapters can replace installed adapters on installed IBM 4247 Model 003 and V03 Printers.

The following table shows the allowable replacements and additions of attachment cards for installed IBM 4247-V03 and 4247-003 Printers, and the feature to order to replace or add an adapter. All of these replacements and additions are easily installed by customers, and do not require IBM Field Engineering for installation.

Note: (2) May require new 4247 Licensed Internal Code provided with these features. The latest code may also be downloaded from vendor Web site (CPG International).

IBM 4247-V03 Printer Stand

The IBM 4247-V03 Printer Stand has three main sections:

  • A flat table surface to hold the printer
  • An input paper tray to hold forms before they are fed through the printer
  • An output paper tray for stacking forms after they are printed

The table is designed specifically to support the features of the IBM 4247-V03, and since this stand accommodates the footprint and weight of the 4247-V03, printer vibration is minimized.

The printer stand was also designed to serve the characteristics of the 4247-V03 printer. The stand accommodates two continuous forms and a separator in the front of the stand is used to ensure that the forms are kept separate.

When dual continuous forms are used, one form rests on the input paper tray and the other form rests on the floor underneath the input tray.

The printer stand is customer set-up and can be easily assembled in about 30 minutes.

The original higher-priced enclosed cabinet style printer stand (#4462) is still available.

The open printer stand is a lower priced printer stand option for the 4247-V03 printer. The present enclosed cabinet printer stand is still available. The open printer stand does not offer the refined appearance of the enclosed cabinet.

Bulk Order for Optional Features

For most products, the quantity of any feature that can be ordered is the same as the maximum number of the feature allowed per machine. Since the IBM 4247-003 and 4247-V03 features are now all customer setup (for 4247 Model 003 with Licensed Internal Code Level 6.05 or higher), in some cases it is desirable to bulk order certain features so that machines can be easily reconfigured by Business Partners and end users. Thus, for these MES features, the maximum order quantity is normally 10, which is greater than the maximum that can be installed on one printer.

The maximum number of initial-order attachment features that can be ordered is one. Use the MES feature numbers for bulk orders.

A procedure to determine the level of code installed in a printer is explained in the Supplementary information in this letter.

For easy identification of boxed printers that have code level 6.05 and higher, the printer part number printed on the box label has been changed from 01PXXXX to 75PXXXX (where XXXX can be any number). The 01PXXXX numbers were used on printers shipped prior to 6.05 code.

IBM 4247-003 Print Throughput Improvement

The print speed of the IBM 4247-003 has been improved slightly for models with internal base code level 6.05 and higher. The improved code provides approximately a 5% greater throughput performance.

Power Plug Adapter (#9801, 9802, 9803, 9804, 9805)

When attaching the Ethernet 10/100 BaseT Network Print Server (#4164) to the 4247 Printers, a Power Plug (Power adapter) is needed. One of the following Power Plugs must be ordered with each Network Print Server.

  • US Plug Type: #9801

These adapters, with the appropriate power plug, are required to furnish the correct voltage and plug into an electrical outltd widthet for the 10/100 BaseT Network Print Server (#4164). These adapters plug into an electrical outlet and transform the voltage to the voltage required by the Ethernet Network Print Server (FN 4164).

The IBM 4247-V03 is a professional industrial printer that offers a faster print speed and a more rugged design than the current IBM 4247 models of serial matrix printers.

The 4247-V03 and all features are customer setup.
