TN Interface

Connectivity &
Data Processing

Connect normally incompatible hardware, and perform data processing tasks

How It Works

A TN Interface is a PC that contains connectivity hardware and software, and optional data processing modules. Three versions are available, with each one offering different levels of connectivity.

TN Interfaces can be located descretely between a data source such as a server or mainframe and one or more destinations such as a printer or archive. Once configured they provide automated and often unsupervised connectivity, data conversion and data processing, allowing you to benefit from data source and destinations that would have previously been incompatible.
