Title: Centronic Converter
Post by: Fabrizio Radica on 02:58, 13 June 19
Hi :)
I've a CPC6128 (classic) with centronic port and i need a "simple" converter for my M4 board (compatible with my other 6128 classic)

I've found this but seems to be for 6128 Plus only.
Any solution? :(

Ciao!

That seems to be for the floppy port, not the expansion port.
CPC plus and classic CPC with centronics (Schneider 6128) have same pinout and can use same adapters.

I sell below solution, which should work for your needs. The adapter can also be used in MotherX4 to give an edge connector for M4 boards with edge connector.

Hi!
I would also be interested in a couple of such adapters!

Sure, if you have a cable already its 4 euro + 4 euro shipping.

Same if you have cables already, I can set you up with some.

PM me for your needs.

Right now I am having difficulties getting new supplies of Centronics connectors at a reasonable price.
