General Description

Centronics, MDR, VHDCI, HPDSUB  Connector Guide
See our connector identification guide!
These breakout boards bring all 36 pins and shield of a 36-pin Centronics connector out to double deck screw terminal blocks for easy connection and prototyping work. In addition to the screw terminal connection, each pin is also brought to solder pads (3 per pin) at 0.1" spacing, allowing the addition of small components or 0.1" headers. These solder pads also work great for probing signals. Please note that the breakout boards are manufactured with a connection between each connector pin and the corresponding terminal block position; no soldering of any type is necessary. The solder pads simply provide an area for making optional connections to additional headers or other components.

This 36-pin Centronics connector is also referred to as a CHAMP, Amphenol, IEEE1284, or 'printer' connector.

These break out boards are perfect for experimentation, prototype work, lab projects, and permanent installations. They are well-suited for interfacing with data acquisition equipment, network systems, or any other devices that use the 36-pin Centronics connector. A breakout board is sometimes referred to as a "transition module", "terminal board", "terminal block", "breakout box", "breakout adapter", "terminator", or "interface module".

Mounting Options

These products are available in two different mounting variants. Product numbers ending with -DIN come with DIN clips already installed and ready to snap onto 35mm or 32mm DIN rail. Product numbers ending with -FT have stick-on rubber feet installed on the bottom side, allowing for benchtop use or panel mounting. For panel mounting, we suggest 1/4" nylon standoffs under the mounting holes, and #6 screws.
