    Lightbulb Panelview 550 (2711-B5A1L1)

    Hi Shawn,

    I would like to connect the new printer (USB type) with this panelview 550, which has RS232 printer serial port on it. I tried to connect this new printer with help of some converter and adapter, but no luck. Do i need to re-configure this new printer in application setting?? Please could you advise me how i can connect this PV550 with the new USB Type printer.

    If you need any more information please let me know.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Narayan

    Good afternoon @NARAYAN,

    I've never tried hooking up a new USB Printer to an old PanelView Standard.

    What you'll need to find is an RS-232 to USB printer converter cable, which seems to be extremely rare (I've never used one.)

    Try searching on "DB9 serial port of computers or microcontroller systems to the USB port of printers," but don't pay more for the converter than what either a Serial Printer or replacement PanelView Plus would cost ;-)

    Best of luck!
