IOtech products with third party USB to Parallel port adapters


We are often asked about USB-to-Parallel port adapters and if they will work with the previous generation WaveBooks and DaqBooks - they do not. This is because these adapters are designed to support only enough parallel port registers to allow the Window's Printer Port driver to run. Devices like the parallel port controlled WaveBook and DaqBook have a complex driver that tasks advantage of the full parallel port specification. Because of the additional demand the adapter do not work and this holds true for most PCI-to-Parallel (and PCMCIA-to-Parallel) port cards.
