Model Description 3835-001
Specific features of the 3835-001 are the following:
No blank pages between jobs are produced by the 3835 unless requested by the operator via the NPRO button or sent by the host.
Preprinted papers (forms and letterheads), which are electrophotographic tolerant, may be used. Perforated and pre-punched paper may also be used. Refer to "IBM 3835 Page Printer Forms Design Reference" for specific considerations.
The 3835 has been enabled to print to within 1/6-inch of the page horizontal perforations. It can reliably print applications such as text, OCR, and bar codes to within 1/3-inch of the page horizontal perforations using recommended papers as specified in the "IBM 3835 Page Printer Forms Design Reference". IBM advises that customers evaluate the 3835 output in their application environment. Refer to the "IBM 3835 Page Printer Introduction and Planning Guide" and the "IBM 3835 Page Printer Forms Design Reference" for specific considerations.
It has the capability to print at speeds up to 88 pages per minute, assuming 8.5 in. (215.9mm) forms length. (This is based on a process speed of the paper through the machine is 12.5 ips). Actual speed depends on many factors, for example, type of data being printed, amount of data, or the host program used to drive the printer.
The 3835 has a recommended usage up to 1,300,000 feet per month.
The 3835 can be used to print some xerographic paper labels and polymer-coated paper-based labels that are suitable for electrophotographic processing. IBM recommends testing a sample of labels in your 3835 before purchasing production quantities for a given application. Refer to the "IBM 3835 Page Printer Forms Design Reference" for specific label considerations.
The 3835 can be used to print documents for use in OCR applications. The 3835 has been tested using OCR fonts in the IBM Bar Code/Optical Character Recognition Licensed Program (5688-021).

Two-Channel Switch (#4020)
The Two-Channel Switch feature allows attachment of the 3835 to a second channel interface. The 3835 can maintain a connection with either of the channels as a single device. Either dynamic or manual switching is selected at the time of configuration. Dynamic switching allows the host system to select either Channel A or Channel B automatically. When set in the dynamic mode, two-channel switching operates in one of two ways:
The two channels may be connected to the same host system or to two central processing units that use the same operating system. Manual mode allows logical connection to only one of the two channels at a time. Selection is done using the Enable/Disable switches on the 3835. The Two-Channel Switch feature may be ordered with the machine, or as an MES, and will be field installed.
Pattern Storage Feature (2Mb Memory #4030) or (4 Mb Memory #4040)
Pattern Storage feature (2Mb or 4Mb) may be ordered in addition to the 2Mb memory shipped standard with each printer. The number of memory slots in the printer (4) governs the maximum number of pattern storage features that can be installed. 16Mb is the maximum amount of pattern storage. Total pattern storage beyond 4Mb is intended for, but not limited to, users of ideographic (double-byte) fonts. Note that the Decompression Performance Enhancement feature (#4202) requires one memory slot, limiting maximum pattern storage to 12 Mb.
Relocation/Discontinuance Kit (#4050)
In the event the 3835 is relocated or discontinued, MES #4050 should be ordered.
Advanced Function Image and Graphics (#4200)
Improves text performance by up to 50 percent and IM image performance by up to 75 percent. Supports IOCA data streams with printer image mapping functions, such as scale to fit, center and trim, and position and trim. Supports IOCA decompression (MMR, CCITT groups 3 and 4, and ABIC) in the printer. Responds to GOCA vector graphics orders at the DR/2V0 standards level. Is able to correct the resolution of an input image to match the IBM 3835's 240 pel resolution. The maximum IOCA image size supported is 210 square inches for each image. Customers may need to order additional Pattern Store to help achieve desired performance with image-intensive applications. Maximum: One. Field Installation: Yes.
Decompression Performance Enhancement Feature (#4202)
The Decompression Performance Enhancement Feature improves performance of IOCA images that are compressed by the IBM MMR or CCITT Group 3 or Group 4 algorithm compared to the Advanced Function Image and Graphics Feature (#4200). The Advanced Function Image and Graphics Feature (#4200) is a prerequisite for the Decompression Performance Enhancement Feature. The Decompression Performance Enhancement feature requires a memory slot in the printer, limiting maximum pattern storage (#4030, #4040) to 12 Mb. Maximum: One. Field Installation: Yes.
No Charge Specify Codes
MICR Font Tapes
Specify feature codes, when ordered for field installation via MES, are billable to the customer unless ordered with a model change and/or a chargeable feature. (Color and voltage changes are always billable.) If the price is not in the price file, an RPQ should be submitted.
