Product Overview

For your everyday, run-of-the-mill print jobs, you don’t always need the fastest, newest, most technologically advanced equipment available on the market. Sometimes the old reliables work just fine. And they’re a lot easier on the budget, too.

That’s where the SerialParallel Converter (38.4kbps) from Black Box comes in.

The SerialParallel Converter is the perfect solution for day-to-day print jobs when all you need are reliable printouts. Go ahead—use your existing parallel printer with your serial PC!

You’ll get consistent serial-to-parallel data conversion at user-selectable speeds up to 38.4kbps. A built-in 16-bit buffer keeps data moving smoothly and prevents data loss from timing conflicts.

The converter is powered from the RS-232 interface, which makes it easy to use. Its internal strapping option converts the parallel BUSY signal to the appropriate signal on the serial interface for hardware or software flow control.
