Printers known to use the IEEE 1284 C (micro centronics) connector
Although the IEEE 1284 spec specifically recommends this connector for new designs, the truth is that cables for it are nearly impossibly to find and cost 5 to 10 times more than the standard 1284AB cables. Here are some printers know to use the connector and some sources for cables. If you know of others, PLEASE let us know?
HP LJ 1100, 8150, 8500, 8550 CLJ 4550(?), 4650, 5550
IBM IP 21, 1145
LEXMARK T522, T62x, C750, W812
Tektronix Phaser 560
Note: Although the HP users manual, online documentation and setup manual for the LaserJet 9O5O all clearly show a picture of the micro centronics connector, the printer actually has the standard B connector as is specified in the text and confirmed by Krista Broussard of HP presales support.
