Channel Input Connectivity Module

(BUS/TAG no longer available for purchase)

The BUS/TAG Channel Input connectivity module of the Solimar® Print Director™ Enterprise (SPDE) accepts print data from IBM and compatible mainframe systems by an integrated online channel connection. The Solimar print server appears to host systems as a mainframe printer and can receive and process data or simply act as a pass-through channel link in a daisy-chain configuration.

These modules are often used for directing mainframe and network data to the Solimar print server for managing, distributing, and archiving print jobs.
