Centronics Line Driver Set

  • Centronics line driver set

Operate printers at distances up to 1000 meters

The Centronics Line Driver Set lets you connect a parallel printer over a distance of up to 1000 meters. The integrated galvanic isolation prevents compensation currents between the connected devices which could result in transmission problems.

    • 36-pin Centronics socket
  • 1 x Centronics output
    • 36-pin Centronics plug
  • Galvanic isolation between in- and output
    • Isolation voltage 500V DC

Management and connectivity:

  • Printer and computer can be connected to separate power supply circuits
  • Indifferent to interfering radiation
  • Also suitable for industrial environments
  • One converter each on both cable ends
    • Centronics > RS422 ------- RS422 > Centronics
  • Transmission rate: approx. 8000 characters/second

Power supply:

  • External power
    • provided by included AC adapters (only with Euro plug)
