Second hand Picoscope supplied without a Parallel Cable

Postby Phil Winder » Wed Jun 14, 2006 6:09 pm

Hi, ive just purchased a second hand ADC-200 and it has come without a parallel cable. I have had a search around and found no mention of what sort of Parallel cable is being used. With the confusion of the USB-Parallel converter using non-standard wiring layouts, I thought Id better check before I start plugging random cables in.

Could you please provide a description/wiring diagram to the construction of a Picoscope Parallel cable?

I would prefer not to purchase another from yourselves since I have some spare parallel cables lying around.

Many thanks,

Phil Winder

The parallel cable is a D25 male to female. The pins are wired 1-1, 2-2, 3-3 etc. All pins are connected.

You can get the latest software from the web & hopefully you have the power supply - if not it needs between about 9V and 24V and the centre pin of the power connector is positive.
