    Agile 5250 Optima

     
     
     


    The AGILE 5250 OPTIMA protocol converter enables an AS/400 or an S/3X midrange system to print to industry-standard ASCII and EBCDIC printers, plotters and other output devices. The converter also accepts input from PCs, LAN print servers and other alternate hosts.

    The OPTIMA's twinax port supports up to three addresses. Each twinax address is individually configurable to emulate an IBM 3812, 4214, 5219, 5224, 5225 or 5256 printer. The twinax input addresses and the alternate host inputs can be individually configured to print to any or all attached output devices, with appropriate character translation being provided by the OPTIMA.

    In addition to its twinax port, the unit provides Centronics parallel and serial input and output connections. As many as four devices can be supported simultaneously (any combination of up to three printers and up to three alternate hosts).

    The OPTIMA is easy to configure, maintain and upgrade, because operating information is stored on a PC/MS-DOS compatible 3.5" 1.44MB disk. The unit can be configured either from its front panel or through a DOS-based, menu-driven configuration utility (OPTEDIT). System uniformity is assured, since the OPTIMA can be configured once and the settings then duplicated for additional units.
