"They were the only business that had exactly what I wanted at a reasonable price. It shipped immediately and works well."

Overview

Many portable and handheld computers do not provide a parallel port. When they do, the built-in port often cannot function in EPP mode.

The Quatech Parallel PCMCIA has a state-of-the-art chipset that allows for compatibility with virtually any parallel device. This high quality parallel control board is made in the USA and includes a five-year warranty (from Quatech).

Quatech's Parallel PCMCIA Card fully supports the IEEE 1284 EPP standard and functions exactly like a computer's native parallel port. Thus, unlike many USB to Parallel converters on the market (which are designed to work only with parallel printers), the Parallel PCMCIA Card will work seamlessly with any hardware or software that requires either an EPP or standard parallel port.

We also carry an alternative Parallel PCMCIA card for a little less.

Question:

I have a program which controls 2 stepper motors through parallel port written in VisualBasic6. Does this product working for my purpose to convert signals from my laptop(which doesnt have parallel port)to circuit running my steppers?


Answer:

This will install a true LPT parallel port on your laptop through the PCMCIA slot. The card can be assigned to any available LPT port and supports legacy addressing. It will also support EPP or SPP modes, however it does not support ECP mode (typically used with scanners and all-in-one printers). As long as your stepper motors use EPP or SPP modes, this should work well for you.

Question:

I have a POS software that has a software key that needs to be attached to a printer port. I want to install this software on my laptop, a Dell Vostro 1400. Will this device work?


Answer:

Since this device acts as a true EPP port, it will work. It is not simply an emulator, meaning it will work as a native parallel port.
