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, allowing for the connector to be plugged in and un-plugged up to 10,000 times. The sturdy construction ensures that the product provides peace of mind and is built to stand up to the rigors of the most demanding on-the-go life. The USB-C connector has a symmetrical design which is identical on both sides, so it does not matter if you plug it in upside-down or right-side-up. It will plug in the first time, every time while preventing damage to the connector port.
