Client Emulator
What is PowerNet Twin Client
PowerNet Twin Client is a terminal emulation and screen formatting
package. This application supports VT100/220, HP700/92, and IBM
3270/5250 emulation.
PowerNet Twin Client consists of a telnet client that will run on a standalone terminal client and a Windows-based configuration. The formatting utility provides screen shaping without the need for an NCU (Network Control Utility).
PowerNet TN and PowerNet Twin Client refer to the same application
and are used interchangeably in this document.
PowerNet Twin Client: Basic Features
The following basic features are available with PowerNet Twin Client
configurations:
• Industry standard telnet protocol over TCP/IP.
• Windows-based configuration utility.
• Extended command set for terminal control from
the host application.
PowerNet Twin Client: Advanced Features
The PowerNet Twin Client also has advanced features that improve the
ability to reformat host application screens:
I The Screen Capture Utility is a Windows-based terminal
emulator. This utility captures "snapshots" of the host
application screens that are formatted by the Screen Formatter
Utility.
I The Screen Formatter Utility builds screen formatter files for
use on the terminal. A Windows interface is used to capture
the 80 column by 24 row terminal screens and then reformat
them to fit into the terminal’s screen area.

Character Sets
Character sets between the Falcon and terminal servers are compatible
for the lower 128 characters, but extended character sets are often
incompatible. For example, the © symbol is DOS character 169, but the
same © symbol might be ISO-8859-1 character 170. The Display
Mapping Object file maps the DOS character set of the Falcon to the
character set that the terminal server uses.
Display Mapping Object files are constructed using the following

<Character from Host> is the character sent by the terminal
server and <Character Desired> is the DOS character to be
displayed on the Falcon. Each line is ended with xlat and a semicolon.
For example, to substitute ISO-8859-1 character ¥ (0xa5) with DOS
character (0x9d), define it in the following fashion:
0xa5=0x9d,xlat;
Multiple character mapping definitions can be specified in a single

Data Editor Object
Data Editor Object
PowerNet Twin Client utilizes the data scanning sequence to edit the
data it is scanned.
To make defining the Data Editor Object easier, a PowerNet Scan Editor
has been included with the PowerNet Twin Client Configuration utility.
Figure 5-1
Scan editing is based on the length and pattern of the scanned entry
(determined by Recognition Building Blocks; refer to Table 5-1 on
page 5-6). Once the scanned entry pattern has been recognized, a series
of Operational Building Blocks manipulate the scanned entry. (Refer to
Table 5-2 on page 5-6.)
PowerNet Twin Client User Guide

< 6-6 >
PowerNet Twin Client User Guide
Beeper Control
Beeper Control
The beep duration and frequency, and the scan beep duration and
frequency may be set using extended commands. These commands
allow setting the duration of the beeps in milliseconds. The duration on
the Falcon has a granularity of 55 ms because of its PC-based
architecture. This means that any duration is rounded up to the next
multiple of 55 ms. For example, setting a duration of 60 ms actually
causes the beeper to sound for 110 ms.
The frequency is set in hertz. If the frequency is set to zero, the terminal
uses the optimum frequency for the Falcon’s speaker. To control the
beeps, the following escape sequence can be used:
<esc>[!6;1;<Alarm_Dur>;<Alarm_Freq>;<Scan_Dur>
;<Scan_Freq>z
The default settings for the beep are a duration of 150 ms with a
frequency setting of zero (0) while the scan beep defaults to a duration
of 300 ms with a frequency setting of zero (0). The following example
illustrates setting the default values:
<ESC>[!6;1;150;0;300;0z
(HEX equivalent: 1B 5B 21 36 3B 31 3B 31 35 30
3B 30 3B 33 30 30 3B 30 7A)
If desired, the default settings can be changed. For example, to set a beep
of 110 ms at 500 Hz and a scan beep of 220 ms at 1000 Hz, the
following sequence is used:
<ESC>[!6;1;110;500;220;1000z
(HEX equivalent: 1B 5B 21 36 3B 31 3B 31 31 30
3B 35 30 30 3B 32 32 30 3B 31 30 30 30 7A)

Screen Formatting Concepts
Screen Elements
The screen elements are the tools used to reformat the host application’s
original screen for the terminal. The following four screen elements are
needed to completely reconstruct the host application’s screen.
Screen Identification Tag
A Screen Identification Tag must be assigned to each host application
screen snapshot. This identification tag serves as a link between the host
application screen and the reformatted screen displayed on the terminal.
This identification tag also enables splitting large host application
displays into multiple terminal display pages. For example, if a host
application screen contains more rows of screen elements than can be
properly displayed on a Falcon terminal, it may be divided into multiple
display pages.
Display Text
The Display text element is descriptive (or directive) text that appears
on the terminal display. Display text is statically defined.
Display Fields
Display fields are used to display information from the host
application server. For example, a Display field is used to display an
item description that is retrieved after a user enters a part number.
Input Fields
Input fields are the only screen element that accept data entry from the
user. Input fields also can be used as Display fields
This is beneficial when the host application server is displaying data that
a user must verify and/or update. For example, an ordered quantity may
be displayed, accepted, and/or changed using an Input field.

Screen Formatter Utility
Screen Formatter Environment
The Screen Formatter supports the use of standard Windows techniques
to reformat the application screen for the terminal. As illustrated in
Figure 8-1 on page 8-4, the Screen Formatter has two windows: the
Formatter Window and the Terminal Screen.
Formatter Window
The screen snapshots that were saved earlier are displayed in the
Formatter window. Identify the screen elements in the Formatter
window and drag them to the desired location in the Terminal screen.
There are a series of navigation controls to scroll through the screen
snapshots contained in the current database.
When scrolling through these screen snapshots, formatted screens from
the Terminal screen will be displayed.
Terminal Screen

screen. Multiple Terminal screens can be useful when working with a
single screen snapshot. Press the New button on the Terminal screen to
create an additional terminal display page for the current host screen
snapshot.
