Description

Business Solutions

The IBM 2391 Plus will provide customers with an affordable solution for printing professional looking text documents with the ability to handle a wide variety of forms. User's of the IBM PPS II 2391 will benefit from the common parts and supplies with the IBM 2391 Plus.

User Productivity

The IBM 2391 Plus is designed to be easy-to-use. Printer installation and setup time is minimal. The "User's Reference" is shipped with the printer, and contains the instructions needed for setting up and using the IBM 2391 Plus printer. Unpacking, setup and start-up are designed to allow the customer to make the printer operational and/or relocate the printer without special tools or special operator skills. A parallel cable is shipped with each printer.

Investment Protection

The IBM 2391 Plus provides a low cost solution for users wanting high-quality text and forms printing at an affordable price. The standard ribbon yield of 4 million characters offers a better value for the customer than either the Epson FX 870 or the Okidata ML320. The IBM 2391 Plus and the IBM PPS II 2391 ribbons are compatible which offers current IBM PPS II user's the advantage of common supplies with reduced supplies inventory.

For more information on attachment to IBM systems and displays refer to the "Connecting IBM Personal Printers to IBM Systems" (S544-4209).

Software Requirements

The IBM 2391 Plus is compatible with applications running under the following operating systems:

DOS Version 3.3, 4.0, 5.0, 6.1

IBM OS/2 Standard Edition and IBM OS/2 Extended Edition support the IBM 2391 Plus Printer using the IBM 42xx Driver with the IBM 4207 Proprinter X24E selection as the printer type under printer properties. Users of IBM OS/2 Standard Edition Version 1.2 or IBM Extended Edition Version 1.2 may obtain a copy of the IBM 42xx Driver through the Electronic Device Driver Distribution Mechanism.

Limitations:

OS/2 Presentation Manager applications will have access to printer resident fonts for code pages 437 and 850 for optimum text printing performance and print quality. Code pages other than 437 and 850 will be supported with OS/2 System Fonts.

AIX*

IBM AIX Version 3.2 for RISC System/6000 supports the IBM 2391 Plus Printer as a parallel or serial (RS-232 or RS-422) attached IBM 4207-002 Proprinter X24E (or IBM 4208-002 Proprinter XL24E).

IBM AIX Version 3.2 "nroff" function support the 2391 Plus Printer as a PPDS printer.

The Xstation 120 and 130 supports the IBM 2391 Plus Printer as a parallel or serial attached (RS-232) IBM 4207-002 (or IBM 4208-002) printer.

IBM AIX PS/2 Version 1.3 supports the IBM 2391 Plus Printer as a parallel or serial attached (RS-232) IBM 4207-002 (or IBM 4208-002) printer.

IBM 4680 OS all versions support the IBM 2391 Plus Printer as a parallel attached IBM 4207 (or 4208) Proprinter in PPDS (Personal Printer Data Stream) mode.

The IBM 2391 Plus DOS National Language Support (NLS) is provided through use of the IBM Quietwriter III (5202) CPI file.

The software applications which operate with the IBM Proprinter, IBM Proprinter XL, IBM Quietwriter III Printer (5202) and IBM LaserPrinter 4019 Models 001, E01 and IBM LaserPrinter 4029 Series will generally operate with IBM 2391 Plus, although they may not support all the new capabilities (that is, resident scalable fonts and many of the card fonts, multiple orientation command, font download feature, and optional paper handling features). The IBM 2391 Plus handles some commands and operations differently.

The software applications that operate with the IBM 7372 and HP 7475A color plotters will generally operate with the IBM 2391 Plus, although they may not support all the new capabilities of the printer. The IBM 2391 Plus handles some commands and operations differently.

Interface Information:

The IBM 2391 supports a standard parallel interface via a 36-pin host interface connector. A serial adapter option is available.

High Speed Parallel Interface

This interface is used for attachment to an IBM Personal Computer or non-IBM personal computer which supports the same 8-bit interface and commands. This interface is also commonly referred to as Centronics parallel and is capable of receiving data up to 150 KBytes per second The factory default of the printer is the parallel interface. A parallel cable is shipped standard with each printer.

Serial Adapter (EIA-RS-232 and RS-422 support)

Features: DSR Ignore, Zero Buffer and Robust XON/XOFF
