Product Description

LinkCom III S is a multifunction and versatile protocol converter designed to support both IBM host printing and any PC/LAN
printing on laser printers including laser printers with MFP capabilities. LinkCom III S features a two port switch for connection to the network and for connection to the printer. IBM host print data will be translated in the LinkCom III S and cdonverted into PCL or PostScript and sent to the printer using TCP/IP. PC/LAN printing is directed transparently via the switch of LinkCom III S and sent unchanged to the printer. Any MFP capability of the printer e.g. remote configuration, scanning or fax option is maintained and fully operational.

LinkCom III S is designed to work efficiently within the mixed Host/LAN environment and supports TCP/IP and SNA sessions directly from the IBM host systems as well as TCP/IP sessions from the LAN. The LinkCom III S will convert IBM IPDS, ICDS and SCS/DCA to the industry standard PCL5/5e or PostScript language used by most laser printers today.

LinkCom III S makes connection of printers to complex LAN environments easier than ever, as the printer is simply connected via the LinkCom III S to the LAN. By a simple configuration both the IBM systems and standard LAN/PC environment can make full use of all features on any B/W and Colour printer, including finishing options.

LinkCom III S offers easy Plug ‘n Print installation for the AS/400 environment using the TN5250e. TN3270e allows mainframe users to migrate SCS/DCA data stream to LAN in an easy manner.

LinkCom III S also provides elegant features such as status reporting directly to the person responsible for the printer. Future enhancements and updates are easily performed through downloads from the support pages on www.mpitech.com
