Examples of "centronics"
In 1987 the Centronics printer business was sold to GENICOM. Centronics Data Computer Corporation continued as a New York Stock Exchange company and soon changed its name to Centronics Corporation in 1987. After using the proceeds of the sale to purchase Ekco Housewares in 1988, Centronics changed their name to EKCO Group.
In 1970, Centronics (then of Hudson, New Hampshire) introduced a dot matrix printer, the Centronics 101. The search for a reliable printer mechanism led it to develop a relationship with Brother Industries, Ltd of Japan, and the sale of Centronics-badged Brother printer mechanisms equipped with a Centronics print head and Centronics electronics. Unlike Digital, Centronics concentrated on the low-end line printer marketplace with their distinctive units. In the process, they designed the parallel electrical interface that was to become standard on most printers until it began to be replaced by the Universal Serial Bus (USB) in the late 1990s.
Some devices allowed switching between IFSP and Centronics modes, i.e. Robotron 6319—6329 were manufactured with interchangeable interface modules, allowed usage of IFSP, IFSS and Centronics.
The larger size has 0.100 inch contact pitch. This size, with 36 pins and bail locks, is also known as a Centronics connector (because of its introduction by Centronics for use with the parallel port on their printers), and is standardized as IEEE 1284 type B. Other connectors of this size are also called Centronics connectors.
All printer input signal lines were pulled up to +5V by 220 Ohm resistor, and pulled down to ground by 330 Ohm resistor. This allowed usage of longer cables comparing to Centronics, but overloaded most usual Centronics adapters.
IBM's early RS6000 workstations sometimes used a "High Density Centronics" connector, which was a Centronics-style connector with smaller pins and shell. For some reason it had 60 pins, and is thus known as the "HDCN60"
The smaller size has 0.050 inch pitch. This size, with 36 pins, is also known as a mini-Centronics connector, and is standardized as IEEE 1284 type C. Other connectors of this size are also called mini-Centronics connectors.
In 1982, CDC acquired a controlling interest in Centronics in exchange for CPI and $25 million in cash. CPI was merged into Centronics and eventually the Rochester facility was closed.
IEEE 1284 is a standard that defines bi-directional parallel communications between computers and other devices. It was originally developed in the 1970s by Centronics, and was widely known as the Centronics port, both before and after its IEEE standardization.
field (such as Centronics, Texas Instruments, and Digital EquipmentCorporation's printer division), but these efforts were ultimately
The MDP also included a Centronics compatible parallel port for printers.
Communication ports An RS-232C serial port and Centronics parallel port.
IBM released the IBM Personal Computer in 1981 and included a variant of the Centronics interface— only IBM logo printers (rebranded from Epson) could be used with the IBM PC. IBM standardized the parallel cable with a DB25F connector on the PC side and the 36-pin Centronics connector on the printer side. Vendors soon released printers compatible with both standard Centronics and the IBM implementation.
In 1977, Centronics sued competitor Mannesmann AG in a patent dispute regarding the return spring used in the print actuator.
The connectors developed for its parallel interface live on as the "Centronics connector", used in other computer applications.
The Printer Interface was an S-100 Bus card giving the Super-80 a Centronics parallel printer port.
In 1982, Control Data Corporation merged their current printer business unit, CPI, into Centronics and at the same time invested $25 million in the company, effectively taking control from Howard. Control Data controlled the company until 1986 when CDC's interest was acquired by a group of investors affiliated with Drexel Burnham Lambert. The Drexel interest was acquired by Centronics in 1987.
The Centronics Model 101 was introduced at the 1970 National Computer Conference. The print head used an innovative seven-wire solenoid impact system. Based on this design, Centronics later made the (incorrect) claim to have developed the first dot matrix impact printer (while the first such printer was the OKI Wiredot in 1968).
The only Centronics laser product was released in July 1986: the PagePrinter 8. The PP8 used a Sharp engine identical to an existing Sharp copier, using a 6800 based controller jointly developed by Sharp and Centronics. At $2,495, the PP8 was $500 less than the HP LaserJet. A faster version was announced, but never materialized.
IEEE 488 specifies a 24-pin Amphenol-designed micro ribbon connector. Micro ribbon connectors have a D-shaped metal shell, but are larger than D-subminiature connectors. They are sometimes called "Centronics connectors" after the 36-pin micro ribbon connector Centronics used for their printers.
