Description

The IBM 6400 Models i5P, i05, i1P, i10, i15, and i20 join the 6400 family in providing professional industrial impact line printers. The 6400 family has models with maximum print speeds from 500 to 2,000 lpm, and with an array of features that can be used to customize the printer for many applications and attachments. The breadth of the 6400 family offers common features across the range of printer speeds.

The IBM 6400 Models i5P, i05, i1P, i10, i15, and i20 are feature-rich impact printers that offer:

  • Optional Telnet 3270e and Telnet 5250e to allow present coax/twinax users to migrate to a network without changing the application

  • Remote management with the IBM Printer Management Utility Version 3.0 and Ethernet

These models are extremely versatile, cost-effective printers. They can be attached via Telnet, ASCII, coax, twinax, token ring, Ethernet, or wireless Ethernet to such diverse hosts as the IBM eServer iSeries, IBM eServer zSeries, IBM eServer pSeries, IBM S/390, AS/400, RS/6000, IBM PC and Netfinity servers, IBM-compatible PCs, non-IBM systems supporting the ASCII serial/parallel interface, and LANs.

Other optional features include:

  • IBM Coax/Twinax attachment to many IBM systems
  • Integrated Ethernet 10/100BaseT Adapter
  • IBM Intelligent Printer Data Stream (IPDS) support for IBM coax, twinax, or Ethernet attachments, to provide compatibility with selected IPDS-capable printers
  • Intelligent Graphics Processor (IGP) or Code V (both Printronix emulations) for graphics and bar code applications
  • Network Print Server feature for easily attaching to token-ring or Ethernet LANs
  • Power stacker on the Model i20 to increase paper stacking reliability and control

Complements the Existing IBM 6400 Family

The IBM 6400 Models i5P, i05, i1P, i10, i15, and i20 join the 6400 family in providing professional industrial impact line printers. The 6400 family has models with maximum print speeds from 500 to 2,000 lpm, and with an array of features that can be used to customize the printer for many applications and attachments. The breadth of the 6400 family offers common features across the range of printer speeds.

Operational Commonality

You can operate the IBM 6400 Models i5P, i05, i1P, i10, i15, and i20 in the same way as the other 6400 models. These models demonstrate a commonality in areas such as operator panel messages, loading and unloading of forms, and the availability of coax, twinax, Ethernet, Code V, IGP, IPDS, Proprinter III XL, Epson FX 1050, Printronix P-Series, and Printronix P-Series XQ Variant emulations.

Telnet 3270e/5250e

The Telnet 3270e/5250e feature allows printing that is currently performed with coax/twinax attached printers to be easily migrated to network attached printers without changing the existing application.

This feature must be used with the 10/100 BaseT Ethernet adapter (#4177, 4178) or the Wireless Ethernet adapter (#4542).

The Telnet feature cannot be used with any IPDS feature, the Coax/ Twinax adapter, ANSI, or any Network Print Server.

Wireless Ethernet

The Wireless Ethernet attachment card (#4542) provides support for either wireless or standard Ethernet cable connections.

Wireless operation requires that the customer obtain the Symbol Technologies Spectrum 24 wireless Ethernet PCI radio card. The customer must also furnish the antenna required for wireless operation.

The Wireless Ethernet card attaches to the IBM 6400 parallel port, so the parallel port cannot be used when this feature is installed. Also, the Coax/Twinax attachment feature (#4830 or #4835) cannot be installed with the Wireless Ethernet feature.

This feature is only available as a factory-installed feature. Wireless Ethernet cannot be added to an installed printer.

ANSI 3.64 Emulation

The ANSI 3.64 Emulation is available as an optional feature to allow Genicom applications to print on IBM 6400 printers. Three ANSI options are available:

  • ANSI 3.64 Emulation
  • ANSI 3.64 Emulation with with Code V
  • ANSI 3.64 Emulation with IGP

The ANSI emulations can be used with the 10/100 Ethernet attachment, the parallel port, or any of the Network Print Server features.

These ANSI features cannot be installed with the Code V/IGP feature (#4841, 4846), any IPDS feature, the Coax/Twinax Attachment, Telnet, or the Wireless Ethernet attachment card.

Pullout Rear Paper Tray

An optional Pullout Paper Tray (#4540) is now available. This feature provides a convenient tray that pulls out after printed output is stacked on the tray, instead of on the floor. It is easier to remove the printed output from the tray than from the floor inside the printer. The tray is similar to the one used with the power stacker feature.

Intelligent Ribbon System and "Clean Hands" Ribbons

The IBM 6400 Models i5P, i05, i1P, i10, i15, and i20 feature an intelligent ribbon system. When used with the "clean hands" ribbon, the Printer Management Utility, and an Ethernet adapter (#4177, #4178 or #4542), e-mail operator alert messages can be sent automatically to selected individuals.

The "clean hands" ribbons have a mylar leader that is 60" (1.52 meters) long so that the user has sufficient leader material to install the ribbon without handling the inked portion of the ribbon.

The IBM 6400 Model i20 uses the same ribbon that is used on the Model 020. This ribbon is unique to the dual hammerbank technology on the Models 020 and i20.

6400 Printer Management Utility

The IBM 6400 family can be easily managed by the IBM Printer Management Utility. This utility provides the ability to remotely manage multiple printers by organizing the printers in a single database, and downloading software and printer settings from a host computer. A virtual operator panel is provided that can be used to configure printers.

The 6400 Printer Management Utility requires that the IBM 6400 be attached to the host system with an internal Ethernet adapter (#4177 or #4178) or the Wireless Ethernet Adapter (#4542).

The Printer Management Utility (PMU), when used with the "clean hands" ribbon, now automatically provides alert e-mail notification of printer messages to the appropriate operator(s). The PMU will proactively send a message to alert the appropriate individual(s) for various printer situations that require operator action. For example, when a "ribbon low" message is generated by a printer, an e-mail will be sent.

Additionally, printer settings can be downloaded to multiple printers and a virtual operator panel accessed for each printer.

This function is included on all 6400 Model i5P, i05, i1P, i10, i15, and i20 printers.

IBM 6400 Model i20 Print Quality and Print Speed versus Band Printers

The versatility of the line matrix printing is causing a shift from fixed character printing provided by the band printers, such as the IBM 4245 and the IBM 6262, to the more flexible technology of the 6400 printer family. The replacement of band printers by line matrix technology is in addition to the many other IBM 6400 applications.

The increased speed of the IBM 6400 Model i20 (up to 2,000 lpm in fast draft mode, and up to 1,800 lpm in data processing mode) increases the opportunity to replace older band printers.

Power Stacker

This feature provides an optional power stacker for the IBM 6400 Model i20. The power stacker can only be ordered on an initial order for a printer. It cannot be added to an installed printer.

The stacker is fully enclosed within the printer cabinet. Forms can have the following characteristics:

  • Single-part forms can have weights from 15 to 100 lbs.
  • Multi-part forms can be up to 6 part, with or without carbons.
  • Form width can be from 3 inches to 16 inches.
  • Form height (length) can be from 5 to 12 inches.

During printing, a vertically movable paper guide stacks the printed output. Non-marking pinch rollers allow for varying paper thickness and provide constant tension on the paper. The pinch rollers are conductive to reduce the electrostatic charge buildup on the paper.

Two infrared beams sense the paper height and cause the frame position to be controlled as the paper height increases. A paper motion detector mounted at the pinch roller station monitors proper paper movement. If a jam occurs in the stacker, the motion detector senses it and stops the printer.

There is a stacker control panel mounted inside the rear of the printer. The operator sets up the stacker operation from the stacker control panel. Two LEDs indicate power on and online conditions. Push buttons are provided for on/off line, form feed, stacker up, and stacker down.

The stacker operates by raising and lowering the stacking mechanism to adjust to the stack height.

The output stacking capacity is approximately 3,000 sheets of 18-pound, single-part forms.

EuroReady

The IBM 6400 Models i5P, i05, i1P, i10, i15, and i20 are EuroReady, and can print the euro symbol. The host software must be capable of sending the correct euro symbol information to the printer.

Product Positioning

The IBM 6400 Models i5P, i05, i1P, i10, i15, and i20 provide increased function and complement the current IBM 6400 Models P50, P10, 010, 015, 020, and 050. These i-models include all the features and functions of the previous models, and provide optional features that include:

  • A Wireless Ethernet network interface card (NIC)
  • ANSI 3.64 emulation
  • An intelligent ribbon system with the "clean hands" ribbons and operator alerts
  • Telnet 3270e and Telnet 5250e emulations
  • A pullout rear paper tray to simplify unloading paper

Customer Setup (CSU)

The IBM 6400 Printer is designated a Customer Setup (CSU) machine. The Setup Guide and Configuration Utility diskette contain all of the necessary instructions to enable the customer to set up and configure the printer.

All 6400 i5P, i05, i1P, i10, i15, and i20 features ordered at time of base machine order are factory installed prior to shipment, and are covered in the setup and configuration instructions. Features designated as plant order have a field-install equivalent, which must be installed by IBM Service.

Performance

Printer throughput in lines per minute (lpm) is a factor of the selected font. Printing speed is independent of the number of characters configured in the character set repertoire. Print lines containing bold/emphasized (shadow) printing or elongated (double high) attributes will print at approximately one-half the rate shown in the tables. Nominal print speeds for the IBM 6400 at 6 lines per inch (lpi) is shown in the following tables.

  • The coaxial portion of the IBM coax/twinax feature of the IBM 6400 is subject to the following limitations, and the following features are not supported:
    • Minimum dot matrix of 9 wide by 8 high.
    • Minimum dot matrix of 4 or 7 wide by 8 high.
    • IBM 3287 Models 1C and 2C.
    • Programmed symbols 2 and 4, 190 character downloadable fonts. For SCS/DSC/DSE mode only.
    • Data analysis = APL feature.
    • Graphic escape.
  • The twinaxial portion of the IBM coax/twinax feature of the IBM 6400 is subject to the following limitations, and the following features are not supported:
    • Minimum dot matrix of 9 wide by 8 high
    • Minimum dot matrix of 4 or 7 wide by 8 high
    • Print lines greater than 198 characters
  • IBM 6400 vs 4234 IPDS Comparisons -- 4234 Emulation Differences
    • The 4234 emulation will not support Load Symbol Sets (LSS).
    • The 4234 emulation will use Courier for all Near Letter Quality (NLQ) mode printing, whereas 4234 NLQ mode was Gothic for 13.3, 16.7 and 18 cpi.
    • The dot sizes are different. Also, the 6400 has a single dot size versus three with the 4234. For bar code applications, some combinations of unit module width, wide-to-narrow ratio, and element height may affect read rates.
    • The 4234 emulation will report image and font resolution of 120 x 144 pel, compared to 144 x 144 pel in the 4234. This will cause images to change size in the vertical dimension.
    • Proportional Space Mode (PSM) is not the same. See the Compatibility charts.
  • IBM 6400 vs 4234 IPDS Comparisons -- 6400 Deviations
    • The 6400 will report Loaded Font command set (LF2) in the Sense Type Module (STM), but will not support Load Symbol Set (LSS).
    • The 6400 will support Page Continuation Actions (PCA) without highlighting.
    • The 6400 cannot detect Human-readable Interpretations (HRI) outside of the Bar Code Presentation space under all circumstances.

(#4895) Power Stacker - Initial Order Only

This feature provides an optional power stacker for the IBM 6400 Model or 20 or i20 . The power stacker cannot be ordered as an MES, and installed in the field. It can only be ordered on an initial order for a new printer.

The stacker is fully enclosed within the printer cabinet.

During printing, a vertically movable paper guide stacks the printed output. Non-marking pinch rollers allow for varying paper thickness and provides constant tension on the paper. The pinch rollers are conductive to reduce the electrostatic charge buildup on the paper.

Two infrared beams sense the paper height and cause the frame position to be controlled as the paper height in-creases. A paper motion detector mounted at the pinch roller station monitors proper paper movement. If a jam occurs in the stacker, the motion detector senses it and stops the printer.

There is a stacker control panel mounted inside the rear of the printer.The operator sets up the stacker operation from the stacker control panel. Two LEDs indicate power on and on-line conditions. Push buttons are provided for on/off line, form feed, stacker up and stacker down.

The stacker operates by raising and lowering the stacking mechanism to adjust to the stack height.

(#4841) IGP and Code V (Printronix Emulations) - Initial Order

(#4846) IGP and Code V (Printronix Emulations) - MES

IGP (Printronix Emulation)

The IGP (Intelligent Graphics Processor) feature is a simple to use programming language for creating graphics in printers equipped with the IGP board. IGP Printronix emulation (also sometimes called PGL) creates on-line forms, bar codes, and has a variety of alphanumeric text-generation capabilities. These capabilities are detailed below:

  • ON-LINE FORM AND LABEL GENERATION - Makes it easy to create forms or labels with the "pre-printed" look. Graphics capabilities include boxes, vertical and horizontal lines with user-selectable thickness, logos, and special alphanumeric print features. Forms and graphic designs can be duplicated horizontally and vertically.
  • SELECTABLE BAR CODES - Provides the appropriate bar code using standard wide-to-narrow ratios. Bar codes available are:
    • Code 39 (also called Code 3 of 9)
    • Interleaved 2 of 5
    • UPC-A
    • UP-E
    • MSI A through D
    • Code 128 Subset B and C
    • EAN-8
    • EAN-13
    • POSTNET
    • Royal Mail

    Note: Both UPC and EAN bar codes can also specify add-on data.

  • EXPANDED AND COMPRESSED CHARACTER PRINT - Alphanumeric height and width are controlled independently for a wide range of character sizes up to 113 times the standard character size (up to 9.9 inches wide and tall). Compressed print sizes of 12, 13, 15 and 17 characters per inch (CPI) are available.
  • ROTATED ALPHANUMERICS - Permits new concepts in font design. Normal, expanded and compressed character strings can be rotated 90 degrees clockwise, counterclockwise, or printed upside down.
  • LOGOS - created using alphanumeric commands and add a variety of print and shading features, for a "customized" appearance to forms, reports, and labels.
  • REVERSED PRINT - for text, logos and forms, permits highlighting and contrasting by 'printing' white characters on a dark background.
  • AUTOMATIC INCREMENT / DECREMENT CAPABILITY - allows batch form processing. You can identify individual numeric and bar code data fields, which includes automatic increment or decrement functions.

IGP is an emulation that allows you to print sophisticated graphics and bar codes. Depending on what the printer is doing, it is always in a particular Mode, which is transparent to the user.

When the printer is receiving text, or printing text, it is in Normal Mode. Any time the printer is on and is not processing IGP commands, it is in Normal Mode. When a Create Form command is issued, the printer moves from the Normal Mode to the Create Form Mode. During this phase, the user sends text, images, and bar code data to the IGP. All of this data is stored in memory. An End statement terminates the IGP data string and the printer returns to Normal Mode.

You can create as many forms as you wish and store them in your host. You can also save the forms in the emulation memory. All forms have file names. You may want to print the form, label it, and store it for future reference. Or, you may devise another method for easy retrieval. These forms can then be downloaded from your host to the printer. When you Execute a form, you can print it as many times as you wish. This saves time from downloading the form each time you want to print it.

The IGP - Printronix Emulation Programmers Reference Manual (S246-0151) is included with this feature and explains the Modes and Commands of IGP in detail.

Code V (Printronix Emulation)

The Code V feature is the QMS(TM)-compatable Intelligent Graphics Processor software designated for the IBM 64XX family of impact line matrix printers. Code V emulates the QMS Code V Version II programming language to produce on-line forms, bar code, and supports many alphanumeric text-generation capabilities. Code V Printronix emulation (also sometimes called VGL) graphics processing features are detailed below:

  • ON-LINE FORM AND LABEL GENERATION - makes it easy to create forms or labels with the "pre-printed" look for each application. Code V Printronix emulation programs control all graphics functions, dramatically reducing host computer programming and processing time. Graphics capabilities include boxes, vertical and horizontal, solid and dashed lines with a variety of thicknesses, logos, and special alphanumeric print features. Forms and graphic designs can be duplicated horizontally and vertically.
  • VARIABLE BAR CODES - allows bar codes for your applications to print easily with standard and user-defined ratios in vertical and horizontal orientations. Available bar codes are:
    • Codabar
    • Code 39 (also called Code 3 of 9)
    • Code 128
    • Code 128-UCC with Subsets A, B and C
    • Interleaved 2 of 5
    • UPC-A
    • UPC-E
    • UPC Shipping
    • POSTNET
    • EAN-8
    • EAN-13
    • MSI
    • Royal Mail

    The IBARC bar code command prints bar codes in four orientations; horizontal, rotated 90, rotated 180, or rotated 270 degrees.

  • EXPANDED AND COMPRESSED PRINT - draws attention where needed. Alphanumeric height and width are controlled independently for a tremendous range of character sizes, up to 9.9 inches wide and tall. Five compressed print sizes are available - 12, 13.33, 15, 17.41 and 20 characters per inch (CPI); permitting up to 170 columns in an 8.5 inch printed area (20 CPI).
  • ROTATED ALPHANUMERICS - permits new concepts in form design. Normal, expanded, and compressed character strings can be rotated 90 degrees clockwise, counterclockwise, or printed upside down.
  • LOGOS - are easy to create using alphanumeric commands and a variety of print and shading features, for a "customized" appearance to forms, reports and labels.
