Patton Model 2030
RS-232/423 (Serial) to IEEE-1284 (Bi-Directional Parallel) Converter
This Converter Complies with the IEEE-1284 Standard for Level 1 Hardware.
Model 2030
  Features & Benefits
  • Async Data Rates to 115.2 kbps
  • Supports two IEEE-1284 Modes: Compatible and Nibble (switchable)
  • 10KV ESD Protection on Serial Interface
  • Works with Level 1 Hardware
  • Power Derived from Both Interfaces, or from External AC Power Supply
  • LEDs for Power and Data Mode (Distinctive Blinking)
  • Plugs Directly into 36-pin Interface
  • Miniature Size Fits in Tight Spaces

The Patton Model 2030 RS-232/423 to IEEE-1284 Bi-Directional Parallel Converter lets you connect asynchronous RS-232/423 serial hardware to a printer or other device equipped with an IEEE-1284 bi-directional parallel interface. Able to work in either Level 1 Compatible or Nibble modes (according to the IEEE-1284 Standard), the Model 2030 supports the high speeds necessary for graphics-intensive laser printer applications.

The Model 2030 supports serial data rates to 115.2 kbps and works with all IEEE-1284 Level 1 compatible hardware, (including Level 2 hardware with Level 1 backward compatibility). Nibble operations are translated into standard Hewlett-Packard? LaserJet? IV serial printer escape sequences for operation with standard printer drivers. Power may be supplied by both interfaces, or by a plug-in AC adapter.



Transmission Format: Asynchronous, full duplex on the serial side; IEEE-1284 on the parallel side, supporting Compatibility and Nibble Modes (switchable)
Connectors: 36-pin male, RJ-45 female
ESD Protection: 10KV
Data Rates: 9.6, 19.2, 38.4 and 115.2 Kbps
Range: Meets capacitive and resistive load requirements of RS-232 and RS-423
Power Supply: Power derived from RS-232/423 and IEEE-1284 Interfaces. Note: IEEE 1284 B interface must support the optional 5V on pin 18, and IEEE 1284 C must support interface pin 36 (peripheral logic high). Otherwise, power must be supplied using the optional AC wall mount power supply.
Temperature Range: 32-122?F (0-50?C)
