The VCOM USB to Centronics Adaptor offers an alternative solution with PC’s that doesn’t facilitate an old parallel port. With the USB to IEEE-1284 Printer Cable, you can use your USB port on your PC or hub and free-up the parallel port for a printer or scanner.
Forget the hassles of IRQ sharing by adapting your high-speed printer to USB. If you have multiple printers, you can eliminate the need for a switchbox by connecting each printer to a USB port. The device is fully transparent to the user, and is ideal for true bi-directional communication.
