Data sheet:

IEEE488 > Centronics interface

  • IEEE488 > Centronics interface

Connection of Centronics printers to IEEE488/GPIB interface

Properties

General information

  • No special printers for measuring devices needed.
  • Simple installation
    • Configuration of address or
    • list-only mode available

Background information:

Printers with Centronics interfaces are very popular and thus are available cheaply. With external interfaces, they can be adjusted to suit any port. The interface normally outlives several printer generations.
