Infoprint 4100-HS1 and 4100-PS1 Printers (4100-HS1 and 4100-PS1)
This section describes the Infoprint 4100-HS1 and Infoprint 4100-PS1 printer characteristics. The Infoprint 4100-HS1
and Infoprint 4100-PS1 are continuous-forms printers that use laser and electrophotographic technology to print text,
images, graphics, and bar codes at up to 247 impressions per minute (ipm). The Infoprint 4100-HS1 has a hard hot roll
which provides high print quality. The Infoprint 4100-PS1 has a soft hot roll which provides premium print quality.
The Infoprint 4100-HS1 and 4100-PS1 printers also have switchable 480/600 pels-per-inch resolution and the Print
Quality Enhancement (PQE) function, which smooths edges on diagonal lines, protects fine details, improves the
fidelity of images, and allows for adjustment of the boldness of text and the darkness of images.

1 . Customer Changeable Developer is available allowing the operator to change the developer, helping to increase
system availability for MICR or highlight color printing. Please contact your IBM sales representative for availability
status.
2 . Maximum printing rate is the maximum number of pages of the indicated size and configuration that can be printed
at the constant speed of paper movement shown for each printer. Rates for pages of different sizes and
configuration can be calculated by dividing the form length into the printer speed. Actual printing rate will be less if
the printer cannot reach this rate due to complexity or density of the data or the ability of the system to deliver
data at this rate.
3 . Maximum usage is based on operating 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, at maximum printing rate with normal
maintenance and operations activity. IBM does not recommend reaching this monthly maximum on consistent
basis.

The printer can print to the horizontal page perforations and within ½-inch (12.7 mm) of either vertical (tractor hole)
edge of the form. See Figure 42. With tractorless paper, the printer can print to ½-inch (12.7 mm) from either edge of
the form without print quality degradation.
Print quality may be degraded when printing near folding perforations, an internal perforation, or any cut in the form.
To ensure correct operation and print quality, maintain the following distances:
From non-folding and internal perforations: 0.05-inch (1.27 mm)
From folding perforations: for text, OCR, and bar codes: 0.33-inch (8.5 mm); for images and solid-area fill: 0.05inch (1.27 mm)
From binder holes and cuts: 0.1 inch-(2.54 mm).

Attachments
The Infoprint 4100-PS1 and 4100-HS1 printers support a maximum of two attachments. These attachments can be:
System/370 parallel channel
ESCON channel
Token Ring (TCP/IP)
Ethernet (TCP/IP)
FDDI (TCP/IP)
Gigabit Ethernet
FICON
The two attachments may be the same (for example, 2 ESCON channels), or mixed (for example, 1 ESCON and 1
Token-Ring). The exception is that the printer can have only 1 TCP/IP attachment of any flavor. You cannot have 2
Token-Ring or 2 FDDI attachments, or a combination of 1 Token-Ring or 1 FDDI attachments.
System/370 Parallel Channel
For S/370 parallel channel attachment, a control unit position on a S/370 parallel block multiplexer channel is required
on an IBM 4361, 4381, 3090, ES/9370, or ES/9000 processor. The following processors are also supported for S/370
parallel channel attachment, Parallel Enterprise Server Models R1, R2, and R3 S/390 G3 Enterprise Server, and the
S/390 Multiprise 2000. Attachment is also supported via the 9034 ESCON converter model 1. The S/370 Channel is
supported in MVS, VM, and VSE operating system environments.
ESCON Channel
The IBM Infoprint 4100-HS1 and 4100-PS1 may be attached natively to ESCON channels. Note that when attached
via ESCON, the IBM Infoprint 4100 HS1 and 4100-PS1 is supported on the MVS, VM, and VSE operating systems
only. The IBM Infoprint 4100 HS1 and 4100-PS1 may also be attached to selected PS/2, RS/6000, AS/400 models
using Token-Ring (TCP/IP), or Ethernet (TCP/IP). Attachment is also supported via the 9032/9033 ESCON Directors,
and 9036 ESCON Remote Channel Extender.
Token-Ring (TCP/IP) Attachment
The IBM Infoprint 4100 HS1 and 4100-PS1 is connected to the host Token-Ring through the IBM Token-Ring cabling
via the Token-Ring High-Performance adapter, which is contained in the AFCCU. The attachment card and token-ring
adapter cable P/N 53F3930 (approximately 4.6 m (15 ft)) in length are included with the IBM Infoprint 4100 HS1 and
4100-PS1. The control unit can be attached to either a 16Mbit/sec or a 4Mbit/sec Token-Ring LAN. The TCP/IP Token
Ring Attachment will attach to the following devices:
8228 Token Ring Multistation Access Unit attached to an AS/400, PS/2, or RS/6000 processor.
8230 Token Ring Network Controller Access Unit attached to an AS/400, PS/2, or RS/6000 processor.
8228 Token Ring Multistation Access Unit attached to a 3172, 3174, 3745, 3725 or 3720 attached to a 3090,
ES/9000, 308X or 4381 processor.
8230 Token Ring Multistation Access Unit attached to a 3172, 3174, 3745, 3725, or 3720 attached to a 3090,
ES/9000, 308X or 4381 processor.
The printer may be located at a maximum distance of 100 meters (333ft.) from the 8228 Multistation Access Unit or
8230 Controlled Access Unit. The distance between the 8228 Multistation Access Units can be increased with either
the 8220 or 8219 Optical Fiber Repeater.
Ethernet (TCP/IP) Attachment
An Ethernet Adapter Card (P/N 00G3369) is supplied with Specify Feature 9990 and Special Feature 4161. This is
installed in the processor of the AFCCU of the IBM Infoprint 4100 HS1/PS1. The IBM Infoprint 4100 HS1/PS1 may
then be attached to an Ethernet LAN via one of the following means:
Ethernet Thin Coax
IBM Supplies a Thin Coax wrap connector (P/N 02G7433)
Ethernet Thick Coax
IBM Supplies the Thick Coax wrap connector (D-shell connector; P/N 71F1167)
Ethernet Twisted Pair
IBM Supplies a Twisted Pair Transceiver (P/N 00G2906)
IBM Supplies a Twisted Pair Wrap plug (P/N 00G2380)
FDDI (TCP/IP) Attachment
The FDDI (TCP/IP) attachment is supported in Infoprint Manager for AIX and Infoprint Manager for NT and 2000
printing environments.
The Infoprint 4100 printers are connected to the host FDDI through FDDI 62.5/125 multimode fiber cabling using SC
connectors by way of the FDDI Single Station adapter that is contained in the AFCCU.
The FDDI (TCP/IP) attachment attaches to the following devices:
Directly to the RS/6000
8260 Multiprotocol Intelligent Switching Hub attached to a RS/6000 processor.
The printers may be located at a maximum distance of 2 kilometers from the 8260 Multiprotocol Intelligent Switching
Hub or RS/6000 processor.
Gigabit Ethernet Attachment
The Gigabit Ethernet attachment is supported in Infoprint Manager for AIX printing environments. The Infoprint 4100
printers are attached to the Ethernet LAN by way of a 62.5 mm SC fiber optic cable.
FICON Attachment
FICON channel attachment is supported in the PSF for OS/390 printing environments. The Infoprint 4100 printers may
be attached natively to IBM FICON Channels (9672-G5, 9672-G6, and 900Z).
Attachment is also supported by way of the 2032 Director and the 2042 Director, as well as to the remote end of an
IBM 2029 Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexor.
