The I-O XIP+7 Twinax Controller connects IBM and IBM compatible Twinax display stations and printers to an AS400-iSeries-System i host via TCP/IP over an Ethernet LAN.

The Xip+7 supports 7 Twinax Devices/Address and has 1 Twinax Host Port (that can be increased to 2 with the optional Twinax Port Splitter). Other models support from 1 Twinax Printer to 42 Twinax Devices/Addresses. It is the ideal solution for those who are migrating to new IBM Power7 or Power8s or any AS/400-iSeries to any Ethernet environment.
