Black Box Serial to Parallel Converter IV

Widget Not Available!!!


Go mobile! Convert serial or parallel wherever you are
  • MacMall Part #: 970078 
  • Manufacturer Part #: PI126A  
  • Platform: Universal 

The Serial to Parallel Converter IV now comes in two versions—choose either the converter for Centronics parallel printers or our new converter for HP® JetDirect® print servers.

The converter features an 8-position DIP switch to set the data rate from 300 bps all the way up to 38.4 kbps—with six data rates in between! It also senses which connected device is DTE and which is DCE and adjusts accordingly. You can set flow-control method (hardware or X-ON/X-OFF), parity, and word length with the external DIP switches.
The Serial to Parallel Converter IV is compact enough for laptop users, yet it can work with any desktop computer connected to a power outlet. The converter draws its power from the connected device and requires no external power supply.
