This adapter cable will connect an inkjet, laser or other parallel printer to a computer with an available USB-C port. Multiple adapters can be connected to multiple printers at the same time, eliminating the need for a switchbox. This adapter auto-negotiates hardware recognition for faster protocol setup, and is fully plug-and-play compatible. The USB-C connector has a robust design which allows for up to 10,000 connection cycles; six times more than a standard USB A connector. Additionally, the USB-C connector is user-friendly and has a symmetrical design which is identical on both sides, which means it does not matter if you plug it in upside-down or right-side-up - it will plug in the first time, every time, whilst preventing damage to the connector port.
