|MP36, MP36, MP35R
To interface a parallel port or emulator, an STP35B (or older STP35A) must be connected to the I/O Port.
IMPORTANT! These are NOT equivalent to straight-through cables. An off-the-shelf DB25 cable will not make the proper connections.
Figure 2: MP46 and BN-SMART-IOCBL
|MP46 or Smart Center
The connection between BN-SMART-IOCBL and parallel port may be through a CBL110C or any other straight-through cable with appropriately gendered DB-25 connectors at the ends.

The connection should be made through a CBL110C or equivalent. The CBL110C is a straight-through cable.
