Traditional IEEE1284 Cable Types:
Other Parallel Cables:
The IEEE-1284 standard was created because there existed no defined standard for bi
-directional parallel communications between personal computers and printing peripherals. Pre-existing methods utilized a wide variety of hardware and software products each
with unique and incompatible signaling schemes. This standard was developed to provide an open path for communications between computers and more intelligent printers and peripherals.
Three interface connectors are defined. These three connectors are denoted 1284-A, 1284
-B, and 1284-C. The 1284-A and 1284-B connectors are equivalent to existing connectors on compatible devices. The 1284-C connector is a new, higher density connector, and is recommended for new designs.
The 1284-B connector is the existing 36-pin 0.085 centerline connector series commonly
used on the peripheral side. This connector is available from a variety of manufacturers. The cable shall be retained using bail locks and latches.
The 1284-C connector is a new 36-pin 0.050 centerline connector recommended by this
standard. This connector is available from a variety of manufacturers. The connector is used for both host and peripheral sides of the interface. The cable shall be retained using clip latches.
The connecting cable shall consist of 18 pairs of signal wires and shall be double-shielded ( both braid and foil).
