Parallel Cables and Power Backup

Parallel cables are primarily used to connect computers to printers and other peripherals. Parallel ports can host different numbers of connector pins, in different arrangements which means that when ordering, the ends of the cable must be clearly specified. Some examples of Parallel cable ends include DB-25 (25 connector pins), DB-9 (9 connector pins), and Centronics 36 (36 connector pins).

POSGuys Rating:

Parallel cables have been around since the 1970s and are primarily being replaced by the USB interface. In some cases they are still necessary where technology has yet to accommodate the popular USB or Universal Serial Bus interface.
