PC parallel port to CAN interface with fully usable printer port

The bigger brother to the successful PCAN-Dongle enables cost-effective connection to existing CAN networks. This adapter is supplied in a connector casing and enables operation over any standard parallel PC port. It supports software-driven switching between printer mode and CAN mode. Power is supplied to the PCAN-Dongle PRO through a special adapter connected to the PC's keyboard output.
A jumper allows the Dongle Pro to be operated with either an “82C251” or an “82C252” transceiver. This makes it possible to operate the Dongle Pro on dual-wire or single-wire CAN systems.

The software supplied makes it a simple matter to install and use the dongle, and provides a very helpful means of monitoring CAN bus systems.
