OVERVIEW

The Intelligent Printer Switch (Parallel) uses no software, so you feel as if you’re connected directly to your own dedicated printer— even though you’re sharing one. Link up to six PCs to a single printer. Printing operates on afirst-come,first-servedbasis.

Thanks to Interface Matching Technology, the switch supports speeds of up to 75,000 cps. Graphics-heavyapplications print faster, freeing your PC so you can move on to other tasks.

The switch is compatible with all known PC software. It uses standard cables, so you can keep using the cable you already own. And to minimize the need for cable boosters, the switch supports extended cable lengths. You can put a distance of up to 300 feet (91.4 m) between the switch and your printer and up to 30 feet (9.1 m) between each of your PCs/switches.

The switch also has variable timeout settings and an end-of-jobform-feedoption.
