Background information:

Connect a standard parallel printer to measuring devices, terminals, telephone systems and mid-range systems. The interfaces resemble simple connecting cables, are able to automatically detect the transfer parameters and can be used for all printer models.

If you appreciate the elegance of a Low Power interface cable that works without any additional power supply, take a look at the "RS232 > Centronics, passive interface", Prod. No. 82000. Some mobile applications aren’t possible without it!
