Printronix IGP

GBox Print Server for Printronix IGP Conversion

The GBox is an Ethernet print server with built-in Printronix IGP emulation.  Standard parallel printers (Laser, Line, Dot-matrix, and Zebra label printers) can now replace legacy printers used to process Printronix IGP datastreams.

The GBox receives IGP 10, 20, and 40 data over the TCP/IP connection, converts this data to PCL 5, Epson matrix, IBM Proprinter or ZPL and sends this converted data str4eam to the attached printer over a Centronix parallel connection.

The GBox emulates the graphical capabilities of a line printer.  Specifically it supports the following IGP functions:

    Forms                        Alphanumerics

    Barcodes                   Rotation

    Duplication                Logos

    Scaling                       Lines, Corners, Boxes

When non-IGP data is sent, the GBox functions like normal Ethernet print server allowing the attached printer to be shared across the network.  The GBox is configured through using an Init-progam to assign the IP address and a web browser.  On-board FLASH memory allows for easy field-upgrades to ensure continued compatibility with future releases.  A built-in program enables a PC on the network to capture the input data file from the host and the output data file to the printer for resolution of any issues.  A sample IGP data file will be requested to enable a preliminary testing to be performed prior to shipment of an EBox to the actual site.
