All the same, suggest community edition / Data integration, just check this one:

However... it all depends on correct conversion (bytes mapping).
The ebcdic encoding format is cp1047. Take a closer look on this:
https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/technotes/guides/intl/encoding.doc.html

A mainframe in france may use a different encoding compare to one in japan.
It is important a package work on your type of EBCDIC encoding it is not just one type.
Check this : http://borgendale.com/codepage/j2conv.htm

A basic understanding is important when assessing talend components especially in case of mainframe stuff.
