Multistation? or ...?

  I want to tell about the derivation product (?) of a Multistation seldom
  generally known here.

Part1 On-line Terminal
  The on-line terminal taken up here has data at hand at a Japanese terminal.
  Since it does not understand above about 3270 and there are almost no data,
  it becomes the talk of 5250 fundamentally.

  5295-001
  5295-002
  3477-J
  3472-J


5295-001

  Probably as a Japanese terminal for 5250, it is the first  model.
  Although there is a point different from the model described later, it is thought
  that it is made fundamental based on a Multistation.

  Feature
    Program is built in ROS.
        Here is the greatest difference with a next model.
        It is thought that the program of an emulator is written in ROS.

    BAT, RNA Test
        As long as a manual is referred to, although BAT at the time of starting and
        an item change, they have a RNA test by the TEST switch.

    Display and Keyboard are as common as Multistation.
        Display uses the monochrome of 5555 and keyboard uses 5556001 or 004.

5295-002

  It becomes the model change of 5295-001.

  Feature
    Starts by the diskette.
        Starts using the support program diskette of exclusive use.
        When seeing the contents of a diskette, KDOS and the emulator of 5250
        were contained as it is.

    BAT, RNA Test
        As long as a manual is referred to, although BAT at the time of starting and
        an item change, they have a RNA test by the TEST switch.

    Display and Keyboard are as common as Multistation.
        It seems that display can use both the color of 5555, and monochrome.
        Keyboard uses 5556001 or 004.

3477-J

  It is the model change of 5295.
  Probably as on-line terminal, it is the last model.
  Although description of each model of K, S, and T will be seen if the site of IBM
  is searched, it does not understand for details.

  Feature
    Starts by the diskette.
        Starts using the internal control diskette of exclusive use.
        When seeing the contents of a diskette, KDOS and the emulator of 5250
        were contained as it is.

    BAT, RNA Test
        As long as a manual is referred to, although BAT at the time of starting and
        an item change, they have a RNA test by the TEST switch.

    Display of exclusive use
        The display of exclusive use of a color and monochrome is used.

    The PS/2 keyboard of exclusive use
        The exclusive keyboard compatible with 5576 which uses a PS/2 port is
        used.
        There are a compatible keyboard of 5576-001 to 003 and type-4 keyboard
        of the same key arrangement as 5556.

3472-J
  It is the exclusive terminal for 3270 currently sold at the same period as 3477-J.

  Appearance
    The appearance of a case and a screen does not change at all with 3477-J.
    It seems that the stamp of a key-top is different although arrangement is the
    same about a keyboard.

  Feature
    It is thought about a main part portion that it does not change with 3477-J.

    The PS/2 keyboard of exclusive use
        The exclusive keyboard compatible with 5576 which uses a PS/2 port is
        used.
        There are a compatible keyboard of 5576-001 to 003.
