Highlights

  • Quality output with 12 page-per-minute printing, 600 dots-per-inch resolution
  • Direct attachment to workstations, Local Area Networks (LANs) and IBM hosts
  • Compatible PCL5e data stream support standard with optional Adobe Postscript and AFP/IPDS support
  • Low-cost duplex option for two-sided printing
The IBM Network Printer 12 is designed for business professionals who demand high performance, excellent 600 dots-per-inch print quality and high reliability for personal or small workgroup environments. Compact and robust, the IBM Network Printer 12 features one of the smallest footprints in its class. Total connectivity assures quick and easy installation to LAN and host environments.

Shared Environments

Today's environments require support of multiple printer data streams. The IBM Network Printer 12 supports PCL5e and, optionally, Adobe**, PostScript** Level 2, and IBM's traditional AFPTM/IPDSTM as well as SCS. Native support of all these data streams allows for consolidation of multiple platform, application-specific printers to one IBM Network Printer 12.

The IBM Network Printer 12 supports all standard network interfaces. Ethernet, Token-Ring, Coaxial or Twainaxial are optional. The IBM Network Printer 12 automatically switches among printer data streams, interfaces and networks.

With installation of IBM's Network Printer Manager (NPM) utility, system administrators can easily install, configure, monitor, and manage the Network Printer 12 from remote locations. The NPM utility was developed using the industry standard SNMP Printer MIB ensuring future migration support and compatibility.

Forms Flexibility

User applications require forms flexibility. The IBM Network Printer 12 supports paper sizes ranging from A6 (4.13"x 5.83") to legal (8.5" x 14") sizes. Additional sizes supported include letter, A4, A5, B5, statement, and executive. This printer can also print on card stock, envelopes, transparencies, labels, and recycled paper.

The IBM Network Printer 12 comes standard with two media input sources. It has a maximum input of 830 sheets with an optional input drawer. Adding the duplex option for two-sided printing is quick and easy. The standard top exit area holds up to 250 sheets and the rear output tray can hold up to 80 sheets. The rear media exit can provide a straight paper path when using the auxiliary tray as the input source. A straight paper path optimizes paper feeding reliability for non-standard media.

High Performance

The printer's ability to maintain rated speed while switching between multiple connections and data streams is critical. The wealth of communication sharing options available on the IBM Network Printer 12 make this possible.

The printer uses a combination of I/O buffering, memory management, caching of common routines and permanently stored print resources in the flash memory (2MB or 4MB) or hard drive options. An additional number of microcode features keeps the printer running at the highest possible efficiency.

First-rate print quality

The IBM Network Printer 12 features excellent 600 dpi print quality with TrueRes edge-smoothing technology. Toner Savings Technology can nearly double the toner cartridge yield by reducing the amount of toner placed on the printed page, which provides significant supplies cost savings while maintaining usable output quality.

(1) Page Protect is an Op-panel setting in the PCL menu and PS menu.
It comes up on the Op-panel as "PAGEPROT". The default setting
is "AUTO". In "AUTO" mode, the printer has the intelligence to
know if there is a potential memory shortage. If there is not
enough memory to print a page, the printer will then use
compression algorithms. These compression algorithms will
provide the printer with the ability to print the page even
though there is not enough memory. An impact to print performance
and print quality can be experienced.

If "PAGEPROT" is set to "ON", the compression algorithms will
not be used. If a print job requires more memory, the printer
will not print the page and will not post a "30 MEMORY OVERFLOW".

(2) In the Op-panel memory configuration menu there are two items
called "PCL SAVE" and "PS2 SAVE". For both of these items the default
setting is "OFF". This setting provides the capability to save PCL
or PostScript data stream resources while switching between PCL or
PostScript emulations. The default setting does not provide the
saving capability. When "PCL SAVE" or "PS2 SAVE" is "ON", resources
that were downloaded for the given emulation will be preserved
between emulation switching. Examples of downloaded resources
are: fonts, overlays, and macros.

the IBM Printing Systems Company Home Page.

(5) Please see the World Trade Considerations Section for translated
driver availability.

Network Printer Resource Utility (NPRU)

NPRU is an application that provides a repository (resource inventory) for fonts and overlays (macros) on a workstation with access to an IBM Network Printer. Once a font or overlay has been added to the NPRU inventory, it can be downloaded to temporary or permanent RAM on the printer or to a Flash or Hard Drive option if available. The font formats supported are PCL Intellifonts and PostScript Type 1. Fonts and overlays that are downloaded are available to workstation applications when the Network Printer drivers are selected. The NPRU is a separate program that uses the printer drivers to download. It is supported for the same OS/2 and Windows operating systems as listed above for the drivers, except for Windows NT.

The NPRU for OS/2 PCL is shipped with the printer and available on the IBM Printing Systems Company Home Page. The NPRU for PostScript OS/2 and Windows is available from the IBM Printing Systems Company Home Page at: http://www.printers.ibm.com

Network Utilities

The utilities listed below are shipped with the optional Network Cards. These utilities are used to configure and setup the Network Cards for the following operating systems:

  Utility          Operating System               Protocols
------- ---------------- ---------
LAN Server (1) IBM LAN Server 3.0 and higher NetBIOS, TCP/IP
(Requires OS/2 2.11 or higher client)

TES/Kermit (2) Novell NetWare 2.15, 2.2, IPX/SPX
3.0, 3.11, 3.12, 4.0, 4.01, 4.1 (5)

AIX (3) IBM AIX 3.2.5 or 4.1 TCP/IP

LAN Manager Microsoft LAN Manager NETBIOS
2.0 and later

(1) The LAN Server Printer Utility redirects as many as 16
printer queues to IBM Network Printers installed on your
network using TCP/IP or NetBIOS protocols. To use the
LAN Server Printer Utility with the TCP/IP protocol, you
need to have TCP/IP enabled on your server. No additional
software is required to use the NetBIOS protocol.

(2) Novell workstations require the TES terminal emulation
program and Kermit to permit remote log on to an IBM
printer network card.

TES is a terminate-and-stay-resident (TSR) program that
can be loaded from the DOS prompt or from the AUTOEXEC.BAT
file. TES must be loaded before the Kermit program can
be started.

Kermit is a terminal emulator program that works with
TES to let a DOS workstation communicate with an IBM
printer network card, so commands can be used to configure
the IBM printer network card.

(3) The AIX Utilities provide a way to configure the
network printer LAN adapter card using bootp. Files are
also provided which allow printing to an IBM network attached
printer, but the AIX printer driver must already be installed
on the AIX system before using the utility. Similar utilities
are available for HP-UX, SunOS, and Sun Solaris
operating systems.

(4) Network utilities will be shipped on diskettes with the
Network Cards. Network Utilities are also available from
the IBM Printing Systems Company Home Page at:
http://www.printers.ibm.com

(5) Using PConsole or NWAdmin in a NetWare 4.x environment,
the printer network cards can be configured to run bindery
emulation in a bindery context in the NDS tree.

IBM Network Printer Manager (NPM) Utility

IBM will provide the Network Printer Manager (NPM) Utility with an easy to use graphical interface in US English for network administrators. The initial versions of NPM will run on three client platforms:

  • IBM OS/2
  • Microsoft Windows 95
  • Microsoft Windows NT (3.51 and 4.0)

NPM will let users install and configure IBM Network Printers in LANs, including Novell 3.12 and 4.X networks in bindery emulation (printer network cards can be NDS-configured with NWAdmin). NPM will also monitor and provide network printer status using the industry standard, open systems SNMP (System Network Management Protocol) Printer MIB and will support private enterprise MIBs for monitoring and managing network printers. Some examples of the information available using SNMP are: on/off-line, paper jam, out of toner, input tray empty, and information about the printer's configuration, capacity, and number of pages printed.

NPM for OS/2 uses the TCP/IP protocol to configure printers to receive print jobs via TCP/IP, NetBIOS, or AppleTalk protocols.

NPM for Windows 95 and Windows NT uses the TCP/IP and IPX/SPX protocols to configure printers to receive print jobs using IPX/SPX, TCP/IP, or AppleTalk protocols.

NPM will be available from the IBM Printing Systems Company Home Page at: http://www.printers.ibm.com

Context Saving

The printer, when switching between PCL and PostScript, will save fonts, macros, and user-defined patterns. Additional memory may be required, please see the memory requirements table.

Novell NetWare Support

  • IPDS Barcode Printing

    To support the BCOCA tower for printing of bar codes, the OCR-A and OCR-B fonts and their corresponding codes pages (892 and 893) must be resident in the printer. These are supported as shown in the "4028 Compatibility IPDS Resident Font Set" table. Code page 1303 is also resident to be used for 128 bar codes.

SCS Data Stream Font Mapping

The coax or twinax interface uses PCL fonts when operating with a non-IPDS host data stream. Imbedding of PCL and PJL commands in the SCS data stream is possible. The printer selects and uses these PCL fonts differently depending on whether the attachment is coaxial or twinaxial. With the coaxial attachment, fonts can only be selected by specifying characters-per-inch (CPI). With the twinaxial attachment, fonts can be selected by specifying either CPI or an FGID (Font Global Identifier).

EBCDIC Attachment Language Support

The language and associated code page support below is based on the current SAA Core Interchange Resident Code Page Support and 4028 Compatibility Resident Code Page Set. Only EBCDIC code pages are listed.
