Ok, this is more of a hmmmmmm moment that actually have a absolute gotta do it, I am up against the wall need. So please humor me a bit.
If I a (x) panel that had a parallel printer module available and wanted to actually connect a parallel printer to get a history report printed out on site. AND as I am sure most of you guys know, finding a parallel printer these day is for sure gonna be a used, maybe it work work, eBay purchase if you are lucky.
Soooooooooo is there an adapter that will work between the panel printer module and a USB, Ethernet, Wireless type of printer??
And yes, there are USB to Parallel adapters but, that is to go from a USB port >>> TO >>> the older Parallel Printer. BUT, I doubt it will work in the opposite direction. Or will it??
Has anyone done this or attempted to do it??
Oh, Mfg. Tech Support says that they have not tested any or will they approve or sanction anything other than direct connection to a "Parallel Printer".
Thanks for any thoughts!!
