Centronic Converter
« 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? :(

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.

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.

The same from my side. Difficult to find under 5€ (was under 3€ before)
