Parallel Port Adaptor "T"
« on: March 14, 2010, 08:07:06 PM »

I have a situation which I think would benefit from a parallel port adaptor “T” plug.
I would like to access different pins in the printer cable for use with other hardware without going to the breakout board on the machine. I have thought about using an A/B switch and jumping the switch on the pins I need from the added hardware printer cable to the printer cable from the breakout board. A “T” plug adaptor at the PP at the computer would make it easier.
Is there such a plug available?

You can get these splitters in various combination's quite cheaply. Could be modified to your exact requirements easily perhaps ?.
