Centronics 2 Computer Adapter

  • Centronics 2 computer adapter

2 PCs share one printer

Properties

General information

  • Share a printer between several PCs.
  • No installation procedure required
    • Works like a multi-socket power extension
    • No power adapter required
    • Independent of operating system, network settings, etc.
  • Automatic switching
    • No manual operation required
  • Excellent performance
    • Relieves network from extra print data load
    • Transfer rate equivalent to max. computer data output rate

Background information:

The local Centronics interface is the most direct and fastest route to the printer, using only minimum system resources. As long as the distances between the devices are not too long, this solution should be chosen. With W&T switches, the office printer becomes the workstation printer for several PCs. When printing over the network, valuable network capacity is used up unnecessarily, as the respective data is only required locally. Also, your colleague might not be too pleased if you snatch away system capacity that he badly needs for something as simple as printing.
