Berkshire-based Telex Computer Products (UK) Ltd, subsidiary of US peripherals specialist, Telex Corp, Tulsa, Oklahoma, has introduced a number of IBM System 36 and 38 printers and displays as well as a 5250 emulation option for its 1280 Intelligent System Series workstations. The UKP420 Telex 201 printer emulates IBM’s 4201 Proprinter and is a 220chps draft, 44chps near letter quality dot matrix device. The Telex 214-XP is a multi-functional printer which emulates IBM’s 4214-2 but is said to operate at twice the speed. Its speed in draft mode is 400chps, 100chps for near letter quality, and it costs UKP3,857. The telex 225 is a plug-compatible line printer replacement for the IBM 5225 with a normal speed of 600lpm – 800lpm in draft mode. It costs UKP8,776. There are four displays announced, one of which, the UKP873 078-2 is described as the only low cost 12 IBM 3179-2 compatible in the market. The 179-2 is a 14 seven-colour IBM 3179-2 plug compatible costing UKP1,247. The 180-2 is a 15 monochrome IBM 3180-2 compatible display with a choice of green or amber characters, which costs UKP1,168. The 178-2 has a similar display but has a 12 screen and it uses 5251/5291-type commands. The new 5250 emulation option costs UKP795 and includes a full-size add-on card and software to allow access for the Telex 1280 to an IBM System 36 or 38 host via twinaxial cable. The 1280 workstation supports up to four simultaneous host sessions with windowing, file transfers from host to disk and disk to host, keystroke record and playback for commonly used sequences under 3180-2 emulation and a display of most 5251 features.
